  1. Budget (including currency): £1400 including monitor, flexible Country: United Kingdom Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Scientific analysis, Minecraft, productivity Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Upgrading from 5 year old gaming laptop that is too slow. I plan to build this PC myself, and I want a micro-ATX size so it's more portable and is less imposing on my desk. I own a 1080 monitor, but am used to dual monitors with my laptop for multitasking, so want something more. I don't need any new input devices. I want to use it for some scientific analysis using CCP4, which is a multithreaded CPU task, but a good GPU is beneficial for the 3D visualisation steps. I also plan to game with it, which is mostly Minecraft, but I'll probably want to play other things as I'll have the capabilities. I'd like general advice on this parts list, any pointers would be great.

  2. CH3OH is methanol. You meant CH3CH2OH, or C2H5OH, both ways of displaying ethanol.
  3. I'm up for joining if you're still looking for players.
  4. Would be awesome for a super compact setup, such as in your parents house, if they don't like it taking up room or being screwed the the ceiling.
  5. I want a mouse because I'm a North Korean five year old child, and I'm glad this giveaway is regardless of age or location. Only joking, I want to replace my cheap mouse with broken buttons.
  6. I like the new mobile version, it actually works! I couldn't access many features on the old mobile version so just used desktop, I have good eyesight. It's good that both versions look similar now.
  7. I've fixed my answer, thanks for the help.
  8. I went and bought the SE425s, and have been using them for a month or so. I really like the audio quality, but I don't know how it compares to the SE325s. The isolation is really impressive, and I don't even realise my family are home until they come into the room and talk to me. The isolation is good on stage too, and I nearly had to put some hi hat and snare in my monitor mix, even standing right next to the kit. The only problem I have with them is a quiet but noticeable buzz (caused by high sensitivity) when using them with my laptop. After a while gaming, I don't notice it. I can use Spotify connect to play through my phone (with no buzz), and control the songs from my PC.
  9. Antvenom on YoutUbe did something like this. https://youtu.be/q3QHIaObe6U
  10. To avoid interference, unplug devices, especially older ones, when not in use, and make sure extension cables are fully unwound everywhere in the house, etc.
  11. If you're doing it while building the house, you could use plastic conduit (example), enabling you to easily run the cables once the walls have been build, and upgrades (e.g. newer cable, more cables in one room) and fixes are easier as the cables easily slide through, and won't get caught up.
  12. Watch Linus' videos about how to kill motherboards (or make a router). If you want to significantly modify the contents of the router, you may have trouble with a 1U case.
  13. I just realised that those Amazon links automatically direct to the correct Amazon site for my country! That's cool. Also, I want one.
  14. How long will the party last, because for a one day party any lease time over 18 hrs shouldn't cause any issues.
