  1. Looks like Content ID is back at it again. Carey Holzman got 7 copyright claims that were supposedly from LTT (claimed automatically by Content ID) because he used Heaven Benchmark in a few of his videos.

    Trident Z Royal

    Nope. I don't particularly like the look of regular Trident Z memory, nevermind the Royal. Also the font they use for the "Trident Z Royal" branding doesn't really float my boat.
  3. Argh.. the dreaded security nut. I remember when my uncle had a 407, that thing was a pain in the arse to get out without an adapter.
  4. Last year it was my cat and YouTube. This year it was the Vodafone customer support agent that I was talking to for about 4 hours because I couldn't make/receive texts or use data at all. Go for it man. You wouldn't believe how many guys would want to meet a cute girl that's into them. Take the chance, it'll be worth it.
  5. I speak a bit of Welsh (it's taught in schools here) and that's definitely not 100 in Welsh.. It did make me laugh though
  6. That's fine with me. Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it
  7. Hi all, I've been looking around for a OnePlus 6T McLaren however I can't seem to find it on their website. Do they still sell it or was it a limited time thing? Thanks
  8. Yeah, I do think FP will be a good alternative to YT. It's just a matter of time.
  9. I doubt it any time soon. Floatplane is still in early stages, there's no chance it will be able to compete with YouTube right now. I do think it has a chance though. LTT have 8 million subscribers so if even half of their subscribers switch over to Floatplane, they'll have a good user base to get them going.

    Don't upgrade your PSU if you can't afford to get a good quality one. Never cheap out on PSUs. Personally I wouldn't buy an MIPC PSU. Partly because I've never heard of MIPC, and partly because if it's cheap and not a well known brand that usually means it's bad quality. I would recommend a Corsair CX450 (grey label), it's a pretty decent PSU on a budget.
  11. Yep. IMO kinda NSFW is an understatement. Probably best not to talk about it.
  12. Probably a scam. Judging by the low price and stock image I'm convinced it's not legit. If it does actually arrive then you've hit the jackpot. £49 for a 1060 is a brilliant deal.
  13. This is what I would change: PSU, cooler, GPU and CPU. Why? The PSU isn't too great. Bad overcurrent protection, loud fan and has coil whine. I wouldn't recommend a Corsair H60 when you can get a better air cooler for less. I wouldn't buy a GTX 1080 new. You can get a Ryzen 7 2700 for less that performs similarly. I would only recommend a 2700X if you're going to do quite a bit of overclocking.

  14. Yeah, it's been a couple of weeks since I last dealt with newer cards however I'm confident that the EVGA cards and the MSI Gaming X Trio have the best air coolers. From my experiences EVGA/MSI Gaming X cards have always had great coolers. I don't think so.
  15. If only it wasn't €650. I'd go to the Netherlands and pick it up if it was cheaper.
