  1. See I wouldn't mind the dongle life but having to choose between charging and listening to stuff when traveling I can see being a major pain. The only way I can see getting around this would be either a separate pair of headphones that I use while the phone is charging or a bluetooth amp/dac. The Xperia 1 ii is looking really good and is pretty much perfect but it's as much as I spent on my desktop which is not ideal.
  2. My brother has one and its a great phone but I've never been an apple guy, I love androids customisation too much and not having to conform to apples styling standards and the only way to achieve this would be jailbreaking the phone. Besides I'm already invested in the Google eco system.
  3. Hi, so I'm gonna get a new phone soon and because of removal of the headphone jack from most phones I'm considering a Bluetooth amp as it it would allow me to charge and listen to music while on the go. Does anyone have any recommendations? As I've been looking at the FiiO btr3 but it would be nice to know what else is out there.
  4. Hey, so currently I'm looking for an upgrade to my now ageing OnePlus 3, I've been out of the smartphone game for while so the new stuff is kinda alien to me and I'm not sure of what I should pick up. Preferably I want to stick to android and I have a budget of around £1000ish, I don't tend to upgrade every year so I don't mind spending a little more for longevity. I also honestly do not really care about camera specs but I want something that is fairly quick, Preferably a headphone jack would be nice, (I know it's a rare occurrence these days but using dongles seems like a nightmare when trying to use semi decent wired headphones as that is another thing I to remember to take with me,unless I get a Bluetooth amp which still isn't ideal as again it's just another thing I have to remember to charge), In addition decent battery life would be a plus as well as a near stock android experience like OxygenOS. But in terms of features that's honestly really it, any help is greatly appreciated.
  5. It's an older style, but Noctua offer a free bracket, if you show proof of purchase of a mobo and the cooler. It's the NH-C12P SE14
  6. With the exception of the price, my only other concern about the 2070 is the artifacting that was happening with the early models, any idea what the chances are of myself getting one with this issue and is this prevalent in the current releases?
  7. I can, in the end, buy next years chips anyway, if they release new cpus. Since AM4 is guaranteed support until 2020, just need to hope that the motherboard gets a BIOS update for the 4000 series.
  8. How is the 2070 armour? I was looking at that and the evga black (Heard really good things about the warranty).
  9. The thing is I kinda, want/need a new system right now. My current 8320 and 7870 is really struggling with the games I want to play. So as much as I want to wait, I also really want to just buy the parts and build asap, so I can play mordhau with friends.
  10. Pretty sure I've seen people with the 2700x and a 2080ti with little to no bottleneck.
  11. Yup, hence why I was looking at 2060, Hardware unboxed did a comparison video and it was a 2-5 frame difference even at 1440p.
  12. I just need something for Cyberpunk 2077 and the Master Cheif collection. I kinda need those games in my life right now. XD
  13. It's like £100 more for a base 2070 than say an MSI Gaming Z, and since you can clock the 2060 to meet the 2070 performance it's really tempting to do so.
  14. Yeah, it's a little annoying when you have the cash to spend but you have to wait for the upgrade to happen. Which is why it's so tempting to pull the trigger right now and buy both the parts. In terms of saving up, the thing is I have more than enough but I don't particularly want to spend more than £1150, as I have other things I want to buy.

  16. 2700: £198.99 2600: £135.97 1700:£129.59 1600:£119.55
  17. Incremental upgrades, really just changing the GPU and adding storage etc. Reusing my current Enthoo pro and Noctua Cooler as I see no reason to change them, at this moment in time.
  18. I really more care more about the longevity of the system. I've had this current system for 7 years and it really is due for an upgrade, (FX series has not aged well) the monitor will come later. It will most likely be 1440p, but 1080p till then. It's just a little annoying that I can't really play the new yakuza or mordhau till then.
  19. Currently 1080p 60hrz, but might be going to 1440p or 1080 144hrz.
  20. While I knew this, it's more of waiting to see if the boards have a BIOS updates shipped out with them. As I don't have any current Ryzen CPU's to hand, to perform the update myself.
  21. Yup, the problem is a 9700k is around £150ish more, so I could buy that or a 2070. I would wait out but the 3000 series will have the more expensive x570 at launch and the B550 boards in September.
  22. Mainly games, I want something that will last a while that allows for headroom so I don't have to make a complete platform change when I want to upgrade the GPU in the future. Primary pushing 1080p with the possibility of pushing 1440p down the line.
  23. Hey, So i'm currently looking at a 2700x and combine that with a RTX 2060, as I personally don't see the point of 2070 when it's £150 more for a very little extra performance to an oc 2060. Would this be a good idea? This is the build I have priced up.

  24. Yeah, it can hinder frames from some games or just cause issues. Which is why I decided against it and also it's just more money being necessary spent, which I could use for my project car.
