    got paid today! so i did a little jig and ordered a monitor stand, and G502 directly from Logitech - I got sick of waiting for Amazon to get it in stock.

    Interesting looking mouse, let me know how comforable it is. I'm happy with my Kone XTD, but the pads are getting worn out after all these years of use. Also finding a glass compatible mouse could be challenging!

    What do people think of the case? I had put a thread up about advice on a portable case, but as of yet no replies. :( I had chosen the Prodigy because I thought it would be both portable and functional (in terms of long graphics cards, storage options). However, the client is probably going to need to put the PC in the case packaging anyway to protect when transporting in the car. This made me wonder whether the "handles" on the Prodigy are any use at all.

    I had considered the Lian-Li TU100/TU200, but the client didn't like it. They want the case to look nice, and be portable and stuff. Yes, they don't know much about computers, which is why I'm in charge of sourcing parts and building it. Any other suggestions?

    Aerocool dead silence. The case looks nice, and the layout is incredibly well thought out for cable management and fans. Also unlike many cases I've bought, they separate and label all screws into individual tiny bags so you can do everything perfectly as you go along. One of the best cases I've had the pleasure of building, and I've owned things like the TJ07, SG07, Phantom Full EATX and such.

    Are they TP Link ones? I've got 3 at the moment, may have a need for more as girlfriend is moving into her new house in 2 months.

    Heard good things about Bitfenix cases specially like the Shinobi case i believe whats its called got good reviews too, so i'm sure the prodigy should be just as good too.

    Hmmm. I don't think they're compatible with my TP-Link powerline adapters. It would've been useful, but nevermind. RCoon still has dibs.

    Just about to post your HDD, as said above, OC that baby, SB is still ballin'

    I haven't yet seen the need to OC my 4670, makes me wonder what all the fuss I was making with my old rigs was about. 8350 is still happy, I don't see much improvement in gaming on either chip at stock or OC'd. Maybe it's my gaming res.

    8350 still unpacks rar's and parses files twice as fast though :laugh:

    I still think that UEFI is much better than anything else in terms of ease of use, I love it and its easy to manipulate. That is coming from a guy who was stuck with either AMI or AWARD for the past 15 years...
    If you havent tried yet, you should, theres always room for trial and error, and it'll eventually get where it deserves to be.

    Not a fan of the GD65 Z77 MoBo for OC'ing, in comparison to competitors it's UEFI was a mess. Much prefer Gigabyte/Asus's offerings.

    Sounds like a plan, I generally like Gigabyte or Asus anyway so wasn't looking for an MSI this time around

    Amazon are currently doing a Netgear 8 port gigabit switch for £15 if anyones interested.

    http://www.amazon.co_uk/dp/B00AWM7PKO/?tag=tec053-21

    Good price for a switch made out of metal, Its also cheaper then the TP-Link variant TL-SG108 ( i think they're all the same anyway)

    I myself use a metal Trendnet giga switch but i have a cheapo plastic TP-Link giga as spare.

    ---

    Personally though i hate that the netgear has cables coming out of the front, it makes it so troublesome to hide cables and such

    Hello,

    Currys / PC World currently have the Steelseries Qck Mini mouse mat on sale for £2.47. I've heard great reviews about this series of mouse mats, and this particular one is perfect for transporting, for LAN parties etc. I've bought one, but they're selling pretty quickly.

    Pretty nice for someone using generic cheap crap matts, although I don't see myself replacing my glass one for some time :laugh:
