  • Biography
    After doing well at College (AAC), I am now at the University of Kent, England. I'm studying Electronic and Communications Engineering (MEng) with a year in Industry. Currently Year 2 (2015/16), I also work at a Private school as an IT Technician where both Windows and Mac OS X are used.

    I saw an opportunity to build a new website for the school, and have done so. I'm now also the Manager of Social Media for this particular school.

    I built my new Gaming/Engineering PC in November 2015!

  1. Hi all Just wondering if I should be concerned at the flex of my M.2 NVMe SSD in the riser card of my Crossfire Impact board. See pics attached. My thoughts are that the thermal pads may soften up with heat and so the SSD may straighten out? pre-installation enclosure not closed enclosure closed with screws
  2. I currently own and use a DJI Phantom 4. It has surpassed all my expectations. I know you're on a budget, but you really do get what you pay for. I'd recommend a second hand phantom 3 pro. Sorry if this is a pointless post!
  3. hi everyone I own the ASUS ROG Hero VIII board, and I believe it supports both SATA and PCIe m.2 storage. Can someone confirm this for me, and that also this will work with it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-MZ-V5P512BW-512GB-Solid-State/dp/B01639694M/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1460821718&sr=8-14&keywords=pcie+m.2 ASUS mobo link: https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/MAXIMUS-VIII-HERO/ thanks
  4. Hi everyone, now I already have the airport express (http://www.apple.com/uk/shop/product/MC414B/A/airport-express?fnode=58) and use it as a wifi printer/speaker connection at the moment. It has an internet pass through, and can also work off wifi to connect to an ethernet port. Will using this effect internet performance for a connected device, over say, a range extender/ power line socket?
  5. THIS IS MY FAVOURITE BUILD I'm not even kidding. I'm actually so envious of your approach and solution to everything.... SUBBED
  6. Looks like a good spec machine. If you're happy with the seller and price, I'd say go ahead!
  7. Just been on UK amazon and its £46
  8. Which one best goes with your colour scheme? if you don't care about colour schemes, what do you look for in motherboard features..? In my opinion, I'd have a preference with the gigabyte board.
  9. I didn't catch whether or not if he has 1x8GB or 2x4GB. But this is a suggestion he should maybe take into account
  10. I still believe at 8GB and the speed of the RAM, this will have little effect. I don't, and have never had, an APU so I can't confirm.
  11. quick and blunt answer: it won't. There will be a few occasions where it may (like in a game which requires memory leaks for it to run) but if you want FPS increase, RAM is not the way to go - especially if you already have 8GB.
  12. Yeah you can use APU and GPU. Pretty sure there was talk about using them together - but don't quote me on that. This sounds pretty cool - would be nice if you did a build log for this in the build log section. There's loads of expensive PCs in there, would be nice for a lower end PC which has a bunch of character thread edit: also the PSU, I'd go with previous suggestions also!
  13. friend just spotted these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/JBL-Control-One-boxes-White/dp/B007IIRHE4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1455291729&sr=8-1&keywords=jbl+control+one+white need an amp though. The black versions are less than half the price
  14. I personally wouldn't go second hand. Speakers consist of moving parts and anything with moving parts can be quite easily damaged. This is just my preference. the a5+ is, yes, but that doesn't negate from it's quality. My other speakers could also be called overpriced. The quality of the build, especially the speakers being requested by OP will be on show on a bookshelf, needs to be high. Not every set of speakers 100% revolves around sound reproduction. OP has yet to define what their preference is. The least you could do is show them some of your suggestions.
  15. ahh okay Well like i said, one of the latest generations would suit. 6600(k), 6700(k)... whatever you want I can vouch for the 6700K, but it's not necessary in all situations. After that, pick your motherboard and then there you go this may mean an upgrade in RAM to DDR4 though - but some motherboards do support DDR3. Check before you buy!
