    It's KeAnS.

    I was part way though a trade with him when this happened. Been talking to Huskie over text about this.

    With the greatest respect, how can it be as he logged in here the day after the accident?

    Noone is not believing you, it's just a bit random to pop into a forum and tell all someone has died without much detail, along with the shock/surprise also, no disrespect was intended by me or anyone else, I just thought it strange that when I was searching for who it could be as your initial post was so sketchy (there are 3 or 4 members with usernames involving Keans etc) that I came across his showing forum activity after the accident which is why I mentioned it.

    I've just got a nice old dell 2405fpw 24" for £100 and am getting a gtx560ti off Moonpig for £75 :D

    The watch is just the sexiest chunk of crafted metal I have ever seen - Obviously there are more expensive watches out there that look way better than this, but they are beyond my pay grade. This one here however is within my budget

    This watch is generally quite rare - there are a few merchants on Amazon that sell it but for £500. Checked on ebay and it still works out cheaper even when paying almost £80 in import duty ordering from America.


    ::EDIT::

    To put it rather bluntly - Its a manly motherf**kin watch.

    It will replace my over a decade old G-shock thats been all around the world with me since ive had it

    This is my old watch btw

    Its an old peice of junk, the bracelet is all scratched up but the glass is still untouched. its been everywhere with me, Tunisia, Portugal, Hong Kong - even toured the outskirts of the sahara desert with me! its an awesome watch but I hate having to adjust daylight saving time as you can only roll the hands forward and not backwards.

    With this new watch i dont have to do it because it receives radio waves from some sort of AP that sets it to the correct time for that time zone so in theory, I will never have to touch it ever again once I have it and its configured apart from putting it on my wrist every day

    Currently using a Seiko 7S36 watch, this thing is pretty well built, but constant adjustment needed. Dead accurate in winter, loses 2 Min a day in summer. Don't ask why.

    my current watch is about 2-3mins fast, its hard to adjust it to 100% accurate with the 'old system' - there are no twisty knobs, just a button to hold down that doesn't stop when you release it to set the desired time. I just left it as it is because it would take me another 5mins of holding down the button again just to do a full circle and be more careful about adjusting.

    Most days i dont even wear it, not even to work. I use my mobile phone to tell the time as its pretty accurate

    I encourage you all to go the thread on the Maximus Hero. I am mighty impressed with my creative thinking and paint skills.

    I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my H100 now, though I used the fans it came with and put the RS240 fans with my EK 120 Rad for Push/Pull.
    Wont fit in my server case as it only has single 120 fan mounting areas.
    I also have the urge to buy something to tinker with in my PC, but I'm fresh out of ideas.
    Around £100 budget for senseless tinkering, though ideally I want a new 3570k to OC with on sensible voltages or a shiny all black MoBo like the MPower.
    I did want to switch back to an 8350 and MoBo but then I'd have to buy a new CPU block, so things would get too expensive.

    yea, im trying not to buy anything.

    ive still got to RMA this pump lol and de-clutter all this spare hardware!

    maybe spend the money on something other than tech!

    i may buy another 8350 for the same reason why you want another 3570k. or if stock/price is decent then that 9370 or if i sell my arse and few bits 9590 LOL

    hows the loop in this heat?!

    mines gained a few degrees at idle and maxs out about 5*c more. which isnt bad!
