    i was not part of the tpu trail, i was part of the first trail on the specialtech forums and when i brought up my issue there all my posts about it were deleted. there was a comp about it for the mounting pressure. it was this which started it for me as i increased the mounting pressure with 4mm of spacers (google true penny mod, my ifx had the same mount) to get the best mount i could. i was told my results where unnaturally high by icd after their rep gilgamesh had told me to do it....

    when i 1st posted about it on here when it started i was labeled a lair and a troll despite the images i had posted later being mirrored by other members here on tpu. i had a post vanish here too but it later came back when others had the issue :rolleyes:

    worst part is that the tim is still as good as it gets, but i would not use it under any cooler with high mounting pressure.


    dude what it was imo is that people wanted free stuff....

    Its sad that you got the shit censored out of you - and I feel your pain as i was abused in the same way by one of the mods but theres nothing you can do about it with how broken the system is. Obviously there are those who would like to differ and tell you that TPU is great and TPU is awesome but the underlying system that governs not just the members but also the mods here on TPU is broken, and there are quite a few of us here that acknowledge how broken the system is but shape up or ship the fuck out as they say.

    as far as reviews goes - which TPU is pretty damn good for, pretty much every thread, every comment started on these forums has to be taken with a grain of salt, and i dont know about you, but the levels of salt on these forums are highly toxic if not fatal.

    ------

    On a less serious note. Logitech has the Proteus Core 502 gaming mouse in stock - I can get it for £60 but if i wait i can probably get it for £40-50 on amazon when it gets released.... Do i buy from Amazon or get it directly from Logitech?

    One of the more interesting things about forums is that there is no legal right to freedom of speech on them. It's just the way of things. One of the many reasons Gr33nG3cko was allowed to reign free for so long, despite the entire internet hating him. Pick a couple of your favourite mods, and browse their moderated sections instead. That's what I do, then I know I won't get screwed for calling someone out on something they said.

    If I ever have a problem, I just PM @Tatty_One and he gives me a straight answer without the BS. Maybe I'm biased though, he is British after all.

    On a more interesting note, I have been looking at the Sennheiser 323D's, either those, or a Blue Microphones Snowball iCE. Can't decide which!

    Depends how serious about gaming you are. Id grab some proper audiophile headphones and some cheap clip on tie mic. reinstall those Xonar drives so you get the Ui with it and make stuff sound awesome.

    I think i was actually considering some Philips Fidelio X1's or L2's at one point both for music and gaming since i have a soundcard with a built in headphones amp.


    No thoughts about my G502? :p

    I think Mice are a very personal thing, I refuse to buy a mouse unless the shop lets me touch it, or someone I know has one for me to try. Some are just not designed for universal hand sizes. I'm also a snob in terms of sensors with bar snapping and zero acceleration.

    I want to make full use of my sound card, so I want a nice quality but cheap condenser mic, and some very comfy, clear headphones. Thing is I can get the Sennheiser 323D's for £70.

    IF you just want a soundcard for music and videos - the Xonar is great. My SB-Z will never beat the Xonar in terms of audio fidelity but im more of a gamer.

    wait until the SB-Z gets cheaper then toss the Xonar out if i were you :p even with brainbit drivers i was still getting hella lot of sound anomalies when it came to gaming - even without EAX emulation on

    cheers :)

    i have nothing but love for the mods on here, not their fault most members these days think they are here to babysit and clean up their mess after them.

    it is that which is wrong with all forums these days. spoilt little brats with entitlement issues who need a dose of man the fuck up.

    i have to shovel that shit on a couple of other forums where i have power too...gets old fast!

    Got to be careful with that the middle click failed on my previous mouse and i carried on using it for another 2 years

    to this day I do not remember to use the middle click functions in anything.

    Opens links in new tabs for me, that's literally all I use it for. Oh and accidentally clicking it and getting that ridiculous scroll option that shouldn't exist.

    I don't believe we have any requirements, some people in here aren't even from the UK :laugh: to join you simply walk in here and start talking to british inhabitants about things such as how delicious cornish cream is. Just a small community inside a community pretty much, we talk about anything, not just tech (but mostly tech).

    It certainly looks like you know how to build a PC at least. Almost every part looks like one I've recommended for certain builds in the past.

    Thank you very much. That took a number of months research, so I've gathered quite a bit of knowledge. I'm pleasured to speak to such TPU fame :p

    I also love the Rocket Raccoon!

    Welcome to the best Clubhouse in the best on line tech community, just be especially careful of those British Moderators, they can be very dodgy :)

    Wrap in bubble wrap, put it in the original box, and then wrap that in brown paper so it looks plain. Unless that was a mistype and you dont have the box.

    That's because anyone who can speak English (and those who can't) are invited over :)

    Edit: Any UKIP supporters here?

    I never vote and refuse to vote. Until a party comes along that isn't run by children who came into politics because they had the right family, I see no real use in voting. If I voted, I'd feel guilty if any of the parties I selected won.
