HOPEFULLY - I'l get my OCZ Vertex 2E tomorrow. Ebuyer are taking their sweet time getting it to me
Mine is up an running now with some very good cable management if i do say so myself, most time ive probably ever spent on cable management!
Yeah i also did flash that 5870 as its fan profile was set at 100% constant, all is good now tho
time for some 5870 crossfire benching in the morning after some overclocking fun
either the Ebuyer site is borked or they are going to make me wait until monday before delivering my SSD my order status has been stuck at 'picking in progress' since 2am last night (does it really take them 10hrs just to pick an SSD off their shelves at their warehouse???)
I orderd it on monday for free delivery (4-5 working days i think thats what it was) And i doubt their gonna deliver it on Saturday as i didnt pay for that service.
Yeah, there will be people up at 2am waiting for your order so that they can process it instantly! /sarcasm
Cut them some slack, it usually takes them a day or so to ready a product, and for me, as long as they deliver the package in 1 week, I don't mind how long they take (unless I ordered next day or something silly like that).
Been looking for an Amiga 1200 but they cost at least £100! A few years back i could have got one for £30-ish.
Just had the sudden urge to set up an Amiga and play some old games, interested to see if i can get one with an accelerator board installed (those are £100 on their own). Funny thing is they can still surf the internet and play MP3s although not very well id imagine.
you and i both know that is BS - As some postmen start work around an hour later - So yes I expect there is a late shift who finish off the work that the early shift couldnt do. just because the business closes at 7/8PM everyday doesnt mean that its all stop behind closed doors.
DHL are the same - work carries on through the night
Yeah, but etailers don't usually need to ship things this fast anyway, they have little if any reason to do it. If they leave it to next day before they ship them though, I will bet frustrated too.
well... Im definitely not getting the SSD until Monday now unless they ship it for saturday (fingers crossed)
Couriers should work monday to sunday - Im sure they got enough staff to make a 'rolling roster' for drivers to take turns doing weekends/sundays. and i say this because E-tailers dont count the weekend as working days but its still an extra 2days wait to get what we orderd despite them saying 2-5days delivery time - If theres a weekend in the middle - youre screwd!
I thought that maybe they would have been nice enough to get it to me before the weekend so I got something to play with but *sigh* guess I got my hopes up
I have somewhere loads of old consoles, the origional Sega, a Nintendo 64, SuperNES etc etc if anyone wants to take a trip down memory lane lol I recently sold an Amiga CD32 console with 8 games on e bay and got 90 quid I think, seems there is a resurgance in Nostalgia!
That an invitation to your house, Tatty?
his wife makes a good steak pie
She does? Aint you the lucky one! either that or you just aint tried Fray Bentos!
we should all grab a few beers n head around tattys place
I'm still coming for some Nostalgia, Tatty...
I'm free tomorrow, see you there Freedom
Just checked on the delivery status again and the Scheduled Delivery date is Monday -_________-
(exactly a week after ordering) guess saturday delivery was just expecting too much
It wasn't an invitation to Tatty's house but rather "Memory Lane". I've been there before, its nothing but disappointments!
Amiga CD32 is shit i wonder who the hell paid £90 for it, i wouldn't even take one for free. I collect a lot of retro games and that, recently just got a Sega Master System with 2 controls and the phaser light gun, 3 games with it for £15 inc p+p. Its hard to find the original model for cheap the Model 2 is much more common. The original can take a scart cable the model 2 is RF only, jesus RF sucks balls.
I THINK I SHOULD SHUT UP NOW.
how are you findin them cat 10.10e's dawg?
they are alot better tbh, i gained about 1.5k by using them over the 10.12's. so defo alot better! not really had any problems.
bleh - I just downgraded back to 10.10e and im getting the pink tint/hue that everyone was talking about... might keep these or i might go back to 10.12
pink tint on what?
nvm - solved the problem - but if you really need to know - Google '10.10e Pink tint' - I re-benched with the 10.10e drivers and i score just under 22k with my 5850s
