that sucks. I hope the pay out was good.

Im asking myself if its worth keeping my 3930k alive by buying an used ASUS SABERTOOTH X79 off ebay. current asking price is £100 but im sure its going to sell for almost £200 by the end of the auction.
Not entirely lol i've been getting lot of calls so its a good sign,just matter finding one that i'm comfortable with the commute and i would just wait and save for new gen.

I thought you used to drive to work? If its within 8-10miles id say leave the car and get a bicycle they are generally faster especially if youre working in more central areas. I did 8miles each way for 3years. It would take me 30mins on a really really good day or the average of 32mins. if i took the tube like i used to, id be taking 40-45mins

well.. I know some folk who cycle 20-35miles just to get into work and do the same in reverse when leaving. I would actually accept a 40mile commute there and back by bicycle depending how the terrain is.

If its fairly flat or has the odd hill or two then thats not problem. Though im probably quite used to being on a bike for long distances.

as far as i can tell, you lot should have some nice roads, Country side and all that. probably a lot of rolling hills and stuff.

Me too, though the distances I travel are in a 10 mile radius.

(While not a UK citizen, I lived in the London area for a summer and quite enjoyed it.)
Londons a sh*thole m8, dont ever come back here.

Living in london has its ups and downs but one of the biggest downs is everything is so damn expensive as you no doubt would have found out.

I can't agree with that, I enjoyed it greatly!

Of course it was, just like any large city, but I wasn't there for jollys. Was working most of the time and being paid very well, so the expense didn't matter much.

I have retired it. The fits made me realize that it no longer had any more life left to give and to carry on would be too much of a risk to my data and my other hardware. It forced my hand to make a deal with the devil to get a working machine going again.

And i did. Parts were delivered yesterday, Started building only to find that I didnt have the correct mounting hardware for my H105 so that bought everything to a complete stop while i wait for it to arrive directly from corsair.

I must of been one of the handful of people to buy a Corsair H105 and H75 hydro coolers for UK retailers to only stock H100 v2 and H40/50/70 v2 mounting kits.

was absolutely gutted. Not really had a pc for the last few days since the fits started getting more regular and this laptop, while its great for the money i paid for it, doesnt really compared to a full on desktop and is grinding on me a little.

First time ive put anything together and had it start up properly first time!!!

Currently installing Windows 10 and boy does it install damn quick on an M.2 drive. I know my M.2 is only 800mb/s write but damn it beats down installing Win7 on a Samsung 850 pro or any sata SSD for that matter.

Today was my nan's funeral. It was a sad day as it is but what made it even worse is other drivers lack of respect for the family of the deceased and funeral procession that was pulling out or moving slowly ahead of them. we were a 4 car convoy but one of them was a hearse, the other a limo and the 2 other cars belonged to family members.

One idiot refused to give way when the hearse was pulling out and ended up sandwiched between us slow moving lot. Another idiot cut in front of us while raising their hands to the sky as if we were preventing her from rushing to hospital to see her first born.

Twice we got split up by drivers unwilling to give way, which made the lead car (the hearse carrying my grandma) having to stop and wait multiple times to catch up...

absolutely zero road awareness. How hard can a big black hearse carrying a Coffin and a black limo following slowly behind it be too hard to notice?

One idiot refused to give way when the hearse was pulling out and ended up sandwiched between us slow moving lot. Another idiot cut in front of us while raising their hands to the sky as if we were preventing her from rushing to hospital to see her first born.

Twice we got split up by drivers unwilling to give way, which made the lead car (the hearse carrying my grandma) having to stop and wait multiple times to catch up...

absolutely zero road awareness. How hard can a big black hearse carrying a Coffin and a black limo following slowly behind it be too hard to notice?

That sucks, sorry for your loss man. Our crematorium is on a large poorly laid out road with terraced houses all across the opposite side. Drivers park on both sides of the road so only a single lane of traffic can get through at once, and the exit for the hearses is right where the chaos begins. Not ideal, but people up north seem to have a slither more respect.
