      PayPal Problem - Some payments not going through   20 May 2017

      PayPal appears to be experiencing problems at the moment, resulting in people being billed but the transaction showing as failed on our end. If you have signed up for a new subscription, and the transaction is showing as pending on the forum, so you haven't gained floatplane access yet, and you have waited more than 10 minutes after purchasing it in PayPal, please go to https://linustechtips.com/main/failed_transaction_fix.php and follow the instructions. If you have any issues, please send me a PM (hover over my picture or username and click "message"), including the transaction ID, and I will try and sort it out for you.

      Please be patient @ONEABOVEALL



      all fix thanks anyway

  2. Does your 4670k bottleneck you GTX970 ever?

  3. It's cool, I can take the heat if needs be. Please direct your discussion to the megathread:

  5. It's more complex to make and I don't know exactly how it all works to be perfectly honest. If i were you, I would just stick to making a basic sealed enclosure as that just requires sealant and you don't have to deal with this "ported" business.
  6. I guess it depends on how handy with the tools you are haha.
  7. Wow thats pretty great. I heard an advert for them this morning on the radio and didn't expect much. Might actually go have a look come boxing day..
  8. I'm not too well versed on the Canadian Monitor market, but these two look alright: Asus VN248H Asus VN238H I guess they're pretty much the same bar different screen size. I'm sure someone will come with a better suggestion, but if it were up to me I would go for that first Asus option. No idea on shipping to Canada through NewEgg, mind.
  9. What features are you looking for? Resolution: Bezel type (matte; glossy): Inputs (HDMI, DVi, VGA, DP etc): Refresh Rate:
  10. I'd suggest a standard sealed box. Just so you know it works. Here's a decent guide on the process involved in making a box
  11. Did you properly seal the box? One of the reasons you need a sub box is to provide that low-end 'punch'..this is achieved by a properly sealed enclosure (you can have ported boxes which produce a slightly different sound but that's beside the point). From your pictures it looks like you have just nailed a couple bits of wood together, this is going to allow air to leave and not produce a deep bass sound you desire. If it isn't sealed, I would take the box apart, use glue, screws and a silicone sealant on the inside.
  12. If you have a copy of the advertisement where it says SSHD, I would take that, along with your laptop to the shop and ask to speak to a manager. Failing that, contact advertising standards - although not sure what they will do besides "we will review their practices" or something like that.
