  1. You can get used Pascal cards for dirt cheap thanks to the crypto crash. I got my 1080 Ti Gaming X in like new condition for £495
  2. A lengthy post,thanks for sharing! regarding the Enermax, do NOT get the first gen TR4 cooler, ONLY get the 2nd gen (the TR4 II) because the pump died or got clogged in my unit. It ran at 70c at stock at load and 50c at idle at stock . It was 28c idle and 58c at load before the pump broke at 4Ghz. Now I have the 2nd gen and it works just as well, if not slightly better. The pump is a different design and apparently they have addressed the pump issues. Currently have fans at 50% so 1100RPM. almost silent. 26c idle, 35c gaming and 56c in stress tests, all at 4GHz.
  3. On my 1950X system, I managed to get my CPU to 4Ghz Stable with 32GB of HyperX Predator RGB RAM (quad channel) to 3400Mhz at stock timings (15-17-17-39) verified that both were stable (AIDA64 for CPU and 4 runs of Memtest for the RAM) so what sort of OCs have you managed to get on Ryzen?
  4. Hey allI am using the latest BIOS and Aura software on my board. Anything other than the default setting puts the DIMMs out of sync. When i click static colour only the 2 DIMMs to the right of the socket light up. i have them in a quad channel configuration The product code for the RAM is:HX429C15PB3AK4/32Thanks
  5. Hey all, I think my 1950X at 4Ghz is bottlenecking my 1080 Ti. At 1080p I regularly dip into the high 40) and 50s on GTA V and only get around 100-120FPS in DOOM For the record, I am not just a gamer, and will be using the systen for rendering and video editing too and the 1950X was a steal for £500 Could the fact I am only running dual channel RAM and a old HDD that runs at 130MBs as my game drive contribute to the bottleneck?
  6. I decided to skip this one and get the MSI Gaming X I mentioned in a previous thread for £495. Seller says this card hasn’t been mined onl is a year old, and will include proof of purchase so I still get 2 years of remaining warranty
  7. I’m planning to bid on an auction that is ending in a few mins. ‘The Guy has used his 1080 Ti to mine and it’s 6 months old. It does include proof or purchase. ‘It’s the Aorus 1080 `Ti
  8. UPDATE: seller got back to me and said Card is from June 2017 and warranty here is 3 years so I should get 2 more years out of the card
  9. A guy on eBay was selling his used 1080 `Ti for £530 but I managed to shave £35 off via the offer system to £495. Is this a good deal and should I go for it? it wasn’t used in mining, is in perfect condition and the proof of purchase will be included should I go for it?
  10. My favourite by far has to be TheTechSource.TV (the real TechSource, not the new one) i stsrted watching these guys in early 2012, even before I started watching LTT later in the same year I loved their simple review style where they just sat in front of a camera and reviewed products. I miss those types videos, they were more personal and straight to the point
  11. I had my X99 rig for 4 years. Decided to upgrade as my 980 Ti blew up thanks to faulty memory inductors so I didn’t want to take any chances. I got CPU and mobo brand new half price on auction from eBay so that’s why I got threadripper
  12. I got a 1950X for £500 new on eBay as I am building a workstation for uni after my 980 Ti in my X99 system blew up (crappy reference design) i jsve OCd it to 4GHz on all cores and it maxes out at 60c which is good
  13. I have g sync so I’m not too worrried about matching the 240FPS exactly. I would like 100+ Minimum Mostly FPS games like Battlefield and COD, with some PUBG and GTA V too
  14. Hey all ive found a good deal for a 1080 Ti STRIX for £535 used but in mint condition I was thinking about getting this over the 2080 Ti as that is double the price I am running an Asus XB272 240Hz monitor. will this card be good considering how pricey the Turing cards are
  15. Has anyone else noticed a big difference in mic and audio quality in general when moving from a board with an ALC1150 codec to an ALC1220/SLC1220? On my old board i had to boost the mic and it didnt sound great at all, on the new board, it sounds great, everything at default with no boosting. It sounds like i had got a new mic when in fact its the same Roccat 5.1 Analog headset ive had for 2 years Why is this? is it due to a better amp?
