  1. How would a person that hasn't done any vehicle maintenance before do in a test?

    Just wanted know what inexperienced people in this area would do.
  2. Hi guys, So I just want people who haven't done any vehicle maintenance before is quickly do a practice vehicle maintenance test (24 questions approx). The only two requirements I have is that you can't be a qualified mechanic or anyone studying vehicle maintenance and I want you to do the test without using the internet to help you because I'm wanting to see how well people who are inexperienced in mechanics do. Once you have finished the test could you put down how many questions you got right and the percentage. Here's the link: http://www.tests.com/practice/ASE-A3-Manual-Drive-Train-And-Axle-Test-sample I just completed the test a few minuets ago and got 24 out of 24 100% (not surprising really as I'm a level 1 qualified mechanic and in the process of doing a level 2 advanced course at college). Thanks
  3. I know this won't be fixed butttttt

    I'm rubbish at coming up with usernames Is there an easy way to change it without making a new account?
  4. Idea for a multi-part series

    Hi guys, So I guess some of you have heard of The Apprentice (people from the UK should know what it is). For the people that haven't heard of it or seen it before I'll quickly explain it for you, so basically a group hopeful business owners (split up into male and female groups) do different business tasks each week set by Lord Sugar (a business magnate) for example making burgers, marketing the burgers and selling the burgers to the public. A person part of Lord Sugars team (a male for the male team and a female for the female team) will keep track of the costs, keep track of the progress and relay vital information onto Lord Sugar. If a team makes a profit without any mistakes they win, but if a team makes very little profit or fails to make any profit at all then Lord Sugar will have the whole team in the boardroom for the team to explain themselves, Lord Sugar will ask the team leader who he thinks should remain in the boardroom for further explanation (usually two are nominated). When the rest of the team leaves and the two nominated candidates remain in the boardroom Lord Sugar will ask the candidates why they think they should stay for next-weeks task, if one of the candidates was the reason the team lost the task then Lord Sugar will say that famous phrase 'you are fired', the candidate that was fired will then go home. Now that's out of the way I'll get to my idea, so basically what my idea is that the main back bones of LMG could take part in an Apprentice sort of task related to tech where they would go up against another group of business owners. The task would be to build,market and sell gaming PC's to a specific audience set by the the business magnate . If one of the teams fails the task then a famous business person in the tech industry can fire a person from the team, and in the next round that candidate will not take part. What do you think would this be a good series?
  5. first build

    i5 8600K with a Z370 board
  6. Build for my Dad

    I've heard they are set for release around January-February 2018
  7. Build for my Dad

    Wait for Coffee Lake Pentiums to come out along with B360 boards.
  8. Twitter merchant scam?

    Anyone selling high value gaming hardware on a social media site is a scam, I suggest you flag the account.
  9. Gtx 750 ti 4gb vs 1050

    http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-750-Ti-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1050/2187vs3650 I highly you suggest to get the 1050Ti 4GB if you can afford it.
  10. PC Upgrade

    Then I'd say it's time to put that PC in the skip and build a new one, I'd wait for Coffee Lake Pentiums to come out along with B360 boards.
  11. PC Upgrade

    Then upgrade the PSU first.
  12. PC Upgrade

    No get a used 750Ti off Ebay.
  13. Dear Linus, Do you think you could be just a *little* bit nicer to him?

    I think Linus doesn't actually mean to be harsh, It's just what you call 'workplace banter'. When I've been to garages for work experience you see this all the time, you get used to it but I understand some employees take it too seriously and think they are getting bullied when it fact it's just a bit of fun.
  14. What would be your dream car?

    All of my dream cars would require full restorations... 1) Linus' pink/green Honda Civic LX as it would make a perfect center piece at car shows/ exhibitions (so @LinusTech make sure when you are finished with it don't scrap it, store it somewhere safe and I'll sort something out with you) 2) Aston Martin DB5 in the same silver color as the one featured in the Bond films because it's a stunning car. 3) An 1986 Rover 216 because...I don't know really.
  15. AMD or Intel for Future Upgradable Starter Build

    I'd go for the Intel one but I'd wait for the B360 boards to come out and take off the aftermarket CPU cooler and just use the stock one as it can't be overclocked anyway.
