I was going to say that, but then she is probably still in Skyrim.
Tatty_One since he is the only one who could be in the UK
WE HAVE A WINNAR!
You don't win anything btw.
This gave him away
So what's the story with meeting Tatty?
I bought his spare GELID Icy Vision cooler for my 6950 and as he was close by to my work so I went and picked it up. He's shorter than I imagined.
But im sure he could pound someone twice your size into the ground. This is Tatty we're talkin' bout here - He wrote the spec ops field manual!
Only 5' 10", he was younger than I thought! Sorry I could not chat longer, I still had about 20 interviews to do
I look younger than I am, I'm actually 27 (in May) shocking is isn't? No worries, next time.
You looked about 15 lol
Your age showing
^^^ At 51 your age ALWAYS shows lol
Anyone found the samsung green magic ddr3 memory in the UK any cheaper then £60? Since it was $40 in the states I don't wanna get ripped off on it. There are a couple of ebay listings but they are from the states and a little high priced.
I was hoping to get some from China or whatever but no listings at all. Would I be OK trying to set up someone in the states sending me some btw mods? If so via PM/Wanted thread/in the memory thread? cheers
Just get someone in the states to get it and send it to you. Im sure theres a few members around here that are willing...
getting them 'modded' before shipping is a little difficult though. god knows ive tried
My Yamakasi Catleap is en route
Really hope I don't get stung off customs
depends if the seller was smart and wrote 'fishtank' on the customs declaration form...
Customs dont always open stuff up to check whats inside (IMO its more of a random thing)
Fingers are crossed for you.
Even if you do you've still saved yourself several hundred
To or To Not to upgrade my Scythe AP-15's to AP-29's - Swapped out all my 140mm Yate Loons for faster 140mm Silverstone Air Penetrators the other the day. I also fitted a NZXT Sentry MIX fan controller to keep the noise down when im sleeping (when i do have to leave the machine running overnight)
If not the fans then i'll most probably look at getting a new keyboard as some buttons wont respond unless push them all the way down like when you are typing on TPU or an email.
@ NdMk2o1o: Any joy on your monitor yet?
The AP-15's are much quieter so if you're leaving it on overnight, I wouldn't think it would be worth it
I'm thinking about buying a laptop, most probably this one --> Asus X53E Laptop - Laptops | Ebuyer.com
But If anyone has any recommendations for a £300-£400 laptop or any reasons i shouldn't buy this one I'd appreciate them a lot
got a fan controller so it doesnt really matter if they are 'louder' I never really intend to run them at full bore. but yeah its probably a waste of money seeing as this setup barely goes over 60'c even after 12hrs of prime. Its just that when its warm in my room but not enough to have the aircon on, Liquid temps can go as far as 37'c. CPU temps are still well within safety limits though.
I just want to be prepared for the heatwave thats gonna hit us.
I am fine with that line of laptops, my ancient X50 is an ancestor of that
Friend's X52 is also working more or less perfectly, except his ethernet port is somehow not working.
What other makes of laptops are you open to? Dell does occasional deals which can beat that one.
http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Lenovo_Edge_E525_1158893.html if you are willing to trade cpu power for more graphics and less battery. I wouldn't but you might.
http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/HP_Pavilion_G6-1204sa_1119470.html I wouldn't buy HP, but you might.
Since the Laptop's mainly for work I don't think it's a good idea to trade graphics for CPU and battery, As much as I would like a decent amount of graphics, the Sandy Bridge Core I5's come close to my Phenom II quad core in performance, where the A4 and A6 are closer to my Athlon X2
As Far as laptop makes go, I am OK with anything except Fujitsu
In which case there is probably not much else you can do, that laptop (processor wise) is pretty decent bang for buck. HD3000 is not too shabby either, its just a tad weaker than my 4570 and I can game quite a bit. Not the most recent games, but good for the slightly older ones.
Can the Mailman have honoury membership for 24 hours..... seems he is bored and needs some culture in his life???
