  1. It's giving me 1,500Kb/s Is that 1.5Kb/s or 1.5Mb/s?
  2. I recently build a new PC And am having some trouble with the internet connection that I wasn't before. I live in a relatively remote town in the UK so about 15Mb/s download is normal for me. I've been trying to download some mods through the ArmA 3 launcher and the download speed is really sketchy with some of the smaller downloads that were about 1Gb I managed to get about 1.6Mb/s download which is not ideal but I'm still happy with but now I'm trying to do a 2.2Gb downlaod and the speed is very unstable going anywhere from about 50Kb/s to 500Kb/s which is just too slow. I'm using a wired connection and I just got a 13.5Mb/s download reading from www.speedtest.net while the download was running so I don't know what is going on can someone please help it is a nightmare trying to get anything done with such slow speeds.
  3. I just finished building a new gaming rig and I'm just in the middle of setting everything up but I noticed AIsuit giving me warning popups about my Vcore voltage which I Asume is CPU related and I looked online and saw people saying that AIsuit stats are sketchy and just to disable them so I did but I noticed in HWiNFO it also says my Vcore voltage is anywhere between 0.000v to 1.120v And constantly changing and then I saw people saying it should be almost completely stable so that kinda got me worried My CPU is a i5 4690k with a NZXT Kraken x61 cooler and a Asus Sabertooth Mark2 Mobo. Someone please help I really want to start benching my new hardware but I don't want to put it under load if there's something wrong or it's not stable!
  4. So I'm halfway through building a new gaming rig in a Corsair C70 case with a Kraken x61 AIO water cooler and because I couldn't find the Kraken on part picker I didn't realize they were in compatible... The problem is that while the C70 does have the mounts and space for a dual 140mm rad, it has a really annoying support bracket at the back of where the top disk drive would sit and it gets in the way of the water tubes coming down from the rad. The cooler also doesn't have long enough screws for a pull outtake set up. Do you guys think it be okay as it's just a small bracket support to just ghetto that shit and drill out the rivet to make space for the tubing and buy some longer screws that will reach through for enough or is that to risky?
  5. I'm looking for a new mechanical keyboard with a UK layout (short left shift, large enter) preferred keys would be cherry mx blues and it needs backlighting. colour changing and/or extra macro keys would be nice but not required and It needs to be full size (with num pad) Any price is fine. Any recommendations for companies that do there keyboards in different layouts would be good too and if anyone cares I'm switching from an Alienware Tact-X
  6. It wasn't bought directly from them hence the pore quality of service I'm guessing. I don't want to give Be Quiet any bad rep here because they do have very high quality assurance and are generally regarded as a very good company.
  7. Yeah I already did both but it may take a while anyway thanks for the help
  8. I recently got a be quiet 850w PSU for my new system and it was a good deal but it came with some damage to the box and five missing cables The warranty seal was unbroken so the actual unit should be fine but I need an extra dual 6+2 GPU cable and some extra fan connectors and I don't want to send it back because it would take too long does anyone know where I can get extra be quiet cables that aren't from the actual store?
  9. I need a mobo for running a 1150 i5 4690k and two sapphire r9 290's. Something as cheap as possible still with the needed features and something decent for overclocking and as many fan sockets as possible. I was going to get a Sabertooth Z97 mark2 but that only has 1 PCIe 16x and while I know 8x slots don't really make a difference to gaming performance if I'm spending £400+ on dual GPUs I don't wanna leave anything to chance. Somewhere not to far above £100 would be good and no more than £150 please. Any colour is fine ACCEPT BLUE. Thanks in advance for any useful suggestions
  10. So what's the best AIO CPU water cooler in general at about the £100 $150 mark? Was going to get a Corsair H110 and put Noctua NF-A14 FLX fans in pull outtake. Can be 280mm.
  11. From what I've heard wouldn't it be better to have only slight positive pressure to keep dust at a minimum and still have air flowing through the case at max speed? Wouldn't high positive pressure create a build up of air inside the case that would just sit around and heat up because it can't get out?
