  1. Hey guys, After I found a great deal on a 360 AIO, I jumped into it and there are a few weird things I need help/second opinion on My CPU (i7 3770 no OCd) I have a pair of cores (C0 and 3) that runs 8C cooler than the other two. Is that normal, or is my mounting a bit weird? when 100% aida64 load is applied, the same thing happens, I have 2 cores at 45 and 2 at 50. It is cool, I just find it weird. Also, I connected the AIO fans to the case fan headers. It made me think, should not they be connected to the CPU fan header, as they are practically the CPU cooler fans?
  2. Probable Nvidia 1100 Series Announcement Date

    It was £300, which is a decent value for a used GTX 1070 Amp Extreme ( quickest 1070 it seems). Yes, it was, as new ones are like £350 here, used ones can be had from £260 if you are lucky, but £280 ish are the normal prices in UK The original guy you qouted was a different person, sorry for confusion
  3. Probable Nvidia 1100 Series Announcement Date

    that was my plan as well, but something just shorted on my GPU, so I just got an amp extreme 1070 cheap as well
  4. Actually fair point, I will look into it Thing is, I could TLC my current cooler, but I want something new and fancy, so I am willingly taking a less reasonable route here Good point. Is the pump usually audible at idle? whenever in game I usually have music or headphones on, but when I watch like 2 1080p 60fps streams, my current fan can get a bit lout
  5. Hey guys, So finally I am about to do a bit of an upgrade on my PC, will change the case to a Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic, and getting a 1070. Currently I have an i7 3770, and it is plenty enough and there is no reason for me to upgrade it. The thing is, the current cooler (Xigmatec Dark Knight 2) is getting a bit too loud, and the addition of the WC oriented case makes me want to try to AIO experience. I am fairly certain that a 240/280 AIO would be plenty, but would a 360 AIO would be quieter than them? I am thinking about the OCUK bundles, so fans and components should be fairly similar
  6. Galaxy Note 9 info

    if the next one will have an 120hz display, I will be interested.
  7. Does Freesync worth it?

    Hey guys So I am in a financial situation that I can upgrade my aging GTX 770 with something stronger, but nothing too new and shiny, I am not willing to pay these inflated prices So I was looking at auctions and I am happy to see that the market has started recovering! Main requirements are: play Forza 7 well (1080p medium to high settings) and be a reasonable upgrade until the market completely settles, and support freesync, as I play CS GO a lot and I have a freesync 144hz monitor Range goes R9 290X<gtx 970<390x<Gtx 980 (Rx 480/580 if they pop up is the goal tho) Would a 290x be sufficient, as they are very cheap? Does freesync makes a difference in cs go?
  8. Android current state

    I have done that before, both on iOS and android, but in my experience they became unstable ( i added too many “features” to it) As far as I hear nothing has really changed then it is not. Terrible but a new OS version per year with slight improvements really keeps my phone feeling fresh.
  9. Hey guys So I am on the verge of buying a new phone for the next 2 years, and obviously it is not an easy task. I am split between s8+/note 8 or iphone x( i can get a very good deal) I had only androids up until 2 years ago (HTC One M8 ) and since I have used a iPhone 6S+. My question is, how often samsungs get os updates, and how substantial are they? Is Android more stable and seamless as it was 2 years ago? Are app implementations similar than iOS? as hardware of these high end phones are OP anyway, i am more worried about OS experience than anything.
  10. Hey guys, I have just got iOS 11, and surprisingly my battery got terrible. 10-20% battery disappeared in no time with no change of usage. A possible solution is to tutn off WiFi, as that seems to affect battery more than it used to, but if you have any experience let me know
  11. ohh well, at least I am not alone thing is, I have an i7 3770, so a new mobo+cpu will not benefit me that much, but it would be very expensive, but yeah, I am starting to save up for a new mobo+cpu+ram
  12. Hey guys So I felt like it is time to upgrade from 8GB to 16GB, so I bought 2 extra 4GB RAM Thing is, it took me a good 20 minutes to install, as as it turned out, 1 RAM has to go to a specific DIMM slot, otherwise it will not post... So like if I swap 2 modules (same channel) it will not post, but only if they are swapped back. Same with the new ones, it did not like 1 RAM in 1 slot but liked the other one in the other slot. Are RAMs designed to go either slot 1 or 2 in a channel? AFAIK this is not the case, but this weirds me out so much
  13. GTA 5 modding

    Take-Two was the body that took OpenIV down, and they are the business people behind Rockstar. Anyways, it is a game that I want, and I will not buy money in GTA online, so I only want single player with mods, occasional fun with online with mates
  14. GTA 5 modding

    Hey guys, As GTA 5 is on sale now, I am thinking about picking it up (played it a lot on Xbox 360 years ago, but I feel like I need this game in my library) There is only one thing, as title suggest: modding OpenIV has closed down AFAIK, and I have used that tool for very long time, and I do not know if that is any other tool to insert mods into the game (like cars, textures, driving mods ect.) Are there any tools that can access GTA packed files for modding?
  15. It looks like worse of both worlds... A: I have never heard of anyone complaining about the iPhone display (IRL) B: you literally have 2 screens to break (which is a big problem IRL) Also, why would you want to cellotape a phone... on the back of your phone? Honestly, I have no idea who is it for. My sister/brother would hate it, as someone who has both and makes app, it just does not appeal to me at all ( why not buy a separate phone just for the same money?)..... am I missing the target audience here?
