  1. Ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy MD :D.


    One Unobtanium Radeon RX GPU coming to me soon :P.


    I'll post pics when it arrives.



    Yes it is above MSRP but what can I do. It's not the crazy mining price and it's got 2 year warranty so I'm happy :P.


    Even if it is used (YES, £320 USED -_-.....this is almost the real wallet ripper) .

  2. The one time I don't want Amazon to deliver something by the next day :D.


    Because there's no way my friend'll be ready to help put it together tomorrow.


    Also inb4 Bank declines and rejects Card purchase as suspicious xD. Hopefully that doesn't happen lol. Never bought anything over £280 with this card.


    EDIT: SUCCESS!!! Thanks to everyone that helped :).

      @Ryan_Vickers Mine looks at usage patterns, size and also purchasing history afaik.


      Anyhow, every part I've ordered thus far has been fine.

    3. Ryan_Vickers


      Well there definitely can be more to it, like just buying in a new location or from a new store they don't trust, but I'm just mentioning what's relevant here and what I can speak from experience on.

      @Ryan_Vickers The only time my card was legit rejected was once when I was buying a game off of Steam :P. The bank called asking if I was trying to buy something from Steam Games or whatever xD. I called back and told them that It was me.

  3. Then I'll probably go 1700X. Edit: actually idk.....
  4. Why? the only reason I'm not 100% for OCing is cos I've never overclocked a CPU before. That's literally it.
  5. I can't buy the GPU that I want to cos It's very sought after. But the 1700X is like £10 extra. So the question really is 1700X or 1800X?
  6. Hi, I've decided I'm buying Ryzen 1st gen now instead of waiting for 2nd gen due to how little I think 2nd gen will change things and also discounts. I'm torn between several options. All of the below options are using Amazon UK. Ryzen 5 1600 - £154 Ryzen 5 1600X- £203 Ryzen 7 1700 - £241 Ryzen 7 1700X - £256 Ryzen 7 1800X - £281 I would prefer high clockspeed but cores also matter to some extent. Doing gaming, programming, CAD, general stuff. I'm not a huge fan of overclocking CPUs so yeah. Which should I buy? Thanks.
  7. What is TJ max INTEL

    TJmax (which Intel calls TJunction) is according to Intel: meaning that a higher temperature would cause a CPU shut down. Source: https://ark.intel.com/products/97129/Intel-Core-i7-7700K-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-4_50-GHz
  8. So. super huge change of Plan. A friend has agreed to help build my upcoming PC and I'm not going for a prebuilt :P. [Insert GTAO Mission Success State Screen and music here.]


    The friend's helping cos I'm super n00b at building PCs and also my arm hurts when I deal with heavy stuff from when I fractured it -_-. Yeah...


    So I might make a thread later asking about an X370 motherboard. Thankfully this means I don't need to buy a new PSU as I can use my RM850i again :D.




    I'm using Chromium 66 and I've also setup the Windows Subsystem for Linux :D. I chose Ubuntu although openSuse and a few others are available as well.

      @tjcater My uni has a Unix Server that the Computer Science students can access and do stuff with.


      And so it's a lot easier to connect to it from a unix terminal using SSH instead of going through PuTTY.

    3. AluminiumTech


      @tjcater Today i found out that the unix server is running 4x Intel Xeon E7-4830v2 (10c/20t each) :P  total 40 cores and 80 threads and 256GB ECC RAM.

    4. tjcater


      Nice. My Uni probably has a server that I'll need to connect to later on so I might just do what you did (I mean I have openSUSE installed too, but I digress)

  9. The only CPU core they've ever designed is their 64 Bit Project Denver ARM core. They're allegedly working on Project Denver 2.0
  10. It should use relatively little power because it's using a dedicated hardware IP block and not the Stream Processors themselves. That being said, the VEGA APUs have a newer Hardware Decode and Encode block than VEGA dGPUs. The APU version has both the Video and Audio stuff combined I think.
  11. Windows 10 Mobile is supported through security patches and bug fixes but for not too much longer. Probably until late 2019 at the very latest.
  12. Microsoft is turning off push notifications for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 devices. Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 are both no longer supported and so Microsoft has decided to shut down their notification services. This is what Microsoft had to say: This is from the original article: This means live tiles will no longer work on those devices and they will be stuck with app icons. I'm not gonna lie, I've not recently seen a Windows Phone being used, let alone a WP 7.5 or WP 8.0 device being used. I have seen one or two Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile phones being used in the wild somewhat recently. Since I've started using Android I really actually like it and I don't think I'd ever go back to Windows on a Mobile Device in my hand unless it was a tablet running full Desktop Windows 10.

  14. Edge is supposed to be somewhat secure. The problem here is both sides should have better communicated. The real issue nobody is talking about imho is the Edge PC Team is nowehere near large enough and they are not delivering innovative features and security patches fast enough.
