    Computers and cars, the two things capable of keeping you perpetually broke, infuriating the hell out of you and when you finish with one project you probably have 7+ planned... yet I still enjoy it.

    [POLL] How many of you have a skylake CPU?

    Looking at building a skylake rig later this year but at the moment in au the price is pushing me to look at haswell-e thankfully this build will be a few months off yet so I'll get time to decide if I want the z170 chipset enough.

    Australia to get faster mobile internet.

    http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/944468677 Meanwhile on the Optus network I have had access to close to this since the start of the year... Note in that speed test I only had 60% coverage. I also get 500MB of data a day. This is why I hate Telstra and if I could use anyone else for my home internet I would.
  3. Most likely psu, mine is fried as well got a surge through it and since then it will shut down whenever there is large shift in load (ie. Idle to booting a synthetic bench) without tearing down the psu I can only assume a cap is near boned and can't regulate rapid shifts in load. Try see if you can cause the issue and report back or just rma the psu. I am fortunate I have a spare laying around, just need to find the time to year the pc down and rebuild with the other psu (the joys of a prodigy, a failed psu is nearly a full tear down job).
  4. The whiplash claims are a joke. Having had 2 major accidents I can assure you if you have the time to complain about whiplash you are fine. Tboned on my old bike at 45mph hurt the most, with a repair bill in excess of £2500 excluding my gear. Can the media get over trying to pin autonomous vehicles for everything, the human factor is the most dangerous part of road safety.

    Spray paint vs Plasti dip

    Working in marine paint and blast I have a little bit of experience with paints. The choice of paint mostly comes down to the finish you want, $$$ you are willing to spend and amount of time you are willing to invest. First question you need to ask yourself is what finish you are after and desired lifespan of the finish. For short term or something you aren't sure about plastidip is a great choice because you can easily remove it and change your mind. For a long term finish I would be stepping away from aerosols completely and looking at gravity fed guns with a good enamel. Urathanes will always give the smoothest finish however urathanes can travel huge distances while airborne making overspray a serious issue. If you want a satin or Matt finish enamels work a treat. If you don't have the $$$ or space to drop on doing a gravity fed gun finish on it aersols can give a fairly decent finish just be particular with your prep work. 90% of a finish is prep.

    Android Stereotypes are too strong!

    If they don't understand then tell them to have fun with their iPhone, you don't need that kind of negativity in your life. HTC one m8 owner here and partner runs a z3.
  8. All these nice cars meanwhile my daily driver is a Holden barina spark, 1198cm^3 of angry 4 banger. Having said that I have had it at just north of 210km/h, I also own a Peugeot 306 cabriolet that is in need of some serious love considering it chews more fuel than the Ford xf Ute i have and the xg blows it out of the water. then there is the mazda bravo and the Suzuki grand vitara. Then 2 motorbikes, I may have too many vehicles.

    AMD and Intel

    Because it isn't as simple as going out the to cpu design tree and picking a few architectures sending them to the fab and releasing a new chip. AMD has much lower budgets to invest and the fact given the run they have had in the last few years they are still kicking is pretty impressive. They are floating because of their gpu section and while they are playing catch up intel is getting to use their RnD to toy with features that interest the niche market and refine their power efficiency leaving AMD in a really sticky situation. The 9590 is an example that you can only brute force so much and all the time intel has had to refine their power consumption and integrating features to the cpu die for native support is only screwing the enthusiast end of the market for AMD even more. It is hard being behind the 8 ball and that is the reality for AMD in the enthusiast cpu market at the moment.

    Dual Graphics Busted!

    Dual graphics is a moot point now days in just about every way. And has setups that beat it, Intel has setups that beat it. The only reason for dual graphics is htpc on the ultra low budget whereby you need it right now. If you can afford dual graphics out the Ute you can afford a better dedicated card setup. Also never trust amd board readings and that heatsink below your ram is important, that is your south bridge. That melts (which they often do) and the board is a brick. Using AU prices, dual graphics setup and then comparable setups.

However having said that for just gaming the increased cost of the fx build will put the i3 or pentium builds in a better position as any possible stretch to the budget will allow the i3 or pentium to upgrade to a new gpu first. If pure gaming is the goal the i3 build is a good choice, if you want to overclock the pentium build is a good choice and if you should stumble into the money to upgrade to an unlocked i5 later you can get a huge cpu upgrade without need for mobo change. At this point from a pure numbers perspective it is just almost impossible to recommend amd for cpu. With the fx build despite the 6300 and 8320 or 8350 all running AM3+ I would never recommend putting an 83xx chip into a micro atx AM3+ board. Alternatively keeping an eye out for bargins here and there isn't necessarily a bad idea, I parted ways with my old i5 3570k + 7870xt rig for $1000 just because at the time I needed to down size to an itx rig. It is possible to jag some cheap hardware on the second hand market however without being able to inspect the rig or knowing the seller it can be hit and miss.

    Does everyone with a K CPU here, keep it OC'd?

    Pushed to limits on every chip I could. Including the odd suicide run. However I have built 3 systems for personal use in the last 18 months so if I break it I am not worried. So long as you follow general safety rules it is not going to degrade a large amount off the life. Having said that I do the same to my vehicles current project being an aprilia rs 125 which I am hoping for around about the 200kw/t range once I finish cutting weight and increasing engine output.

    Any indepth pentium gaming benches?

    Game benchmarks are going to depend entirely upon the game, I don't see what you are asking for that is of use.

    My Brilliant Education Plan

    Terrible idea considering at 21 years of age I still don't have a clue what I want to be. I can design and build a motor/generator with scrap laying around the house. I can disassemble and reassemble a ute with little hassle, have rewired entire houses and threw in an engineering degree because of family issues arising that needed sorting (3 years later they are almost resolved). Despite all this I couldn't honestly say what I want to do, I work to cover my bills and play + a few bucks to spare until such time as I can work out what the hell I want to do. As if any child outside autistic children could actually have a clue at that age (I have had the pleasure of meeting a few autistic children and they are amazing the way their minds tick over, seriously if you ever get a chance spend the time and try and see their point of view it is interesting).

    Tech Motocycle Riders? Show Off Your Bike.

    Finally arrived. Now just need damn department of transport systems to come back online so I can register it. *sigh* There always has to be a complication when you have a vehicle related itch to scratch.

    Tech Motocycle Riders? Show Off Your Bike.

    Just ordered an Aprilia RS 125 (managed to jag the last new one I could find in Australia since production was discontinued). Hopefully should arrive in june will post some pictures when it rocks up. Honestly though there must be more people on here with bikes right? For those wanting an idea.
