      ayyy, Xander is back. 

  2. Like their is a 1660 OC 6GB for £207 on amazon. So that makes 3 to choose from
  3. I did think of going for the 580 but i'm trying to get a new card with a decent life span (lookin to last for the next couple years.
  4. Soooo I'm currently looking to upgrade my GPU as my current r9 270x is starting to fall behind in some games i have been playing and maybe it's time to move on from it. So far I have two different cards in mind; XFX Radeon Rx 590 https://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-Radeon-GDDR5-DVI-D-Graphics/dp/B07JQDKNXS/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2X7RMI1PJBHCU&dchild=1&keywords=gpu&qid=1589373546&s=computers&sprefix=GPU%2Ccomputers%2C152&sr=1-4&th=1 and the XFX RX 5500 XT https://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-3xDisplay-PCI-Express-Graphics-RX-55XT8D
  5. Sooo, Firstly been a while since i posted here.

    1. Cyberspirit

  7. Soo~ decided to commit to getting white led strips to put in my pc case so it would add to the "clean" asthetics it has. Currently waiting for it to arrive and will probs post an image when i put them in.


    Next meaningful upgrade is gonna be gpu, currently at a r9 290x or 280x can't recall which one. And it aint holdin up as well ( tbf it went through the leaking damage of my AIO last year) so it held up long enough :D

    So i posted this a year back, recently shared it with a discord server as one of the members has been showing their wallpaper backgrounds.


    And someone came across it and was saying it is lewd....


    I would much appreciate to see what others opinions on it is. As to me this is just a cool stylisation of Zero two :/

      there's a difference between sexy and lewd. This is sexy

    3. TopHatProductions115


      It's not lewd if it's 02. Just bad story writing :P

      Beef Boss


      That wasn't funny. Despite my reaction.

  9. So firstly, if you are an amazon employee this isnt aimed at all of you,


    But come one if you are working in customer service, Especially when dealing with an issue regarding the customers money (refund) don't Bs, don't lie, don't give them false hope.


    As i had an issue with my prime (unactive for a yr now) and it randomly decided to renew itself. How do i find out? email, SMS, notification from amazon. Nope, throughy bloody online banking when i noticed i was down cash i had....


    Contacted support and requested a full, refund not the partial one as this charge had not input from my side, was lead down a 20minute chat saying i'll have the full refund, along with me multiple times wanting them to confirm the amount and an email with the amount owed, never got the email,


    Today i decided to enquire about the thing to be told only the partial payment was being refunded, explained to them what i was meant to be owed and has now been confirmed that the remainder should arrive in my account in the next week.


    I am not one to put complaints against ppl unless it regards my own money ( does not include stupid purchases i have made :/ ) 


    But you don't lie to a customer about the many they are wanting to be returned especially when it is for a valid reason...


    and on another note, don't BS me when it comes to cash as its one thing i keep close tabs on due to Uni for the time being

  10. Turns out i am still Alive!


    Kinda let this fall to the back burner some how, so how people doing n All?


    Wanna see how ppl doing coming up sooo soon to christmas 

    1. Cyberspirit


      I'm doing good myself. I went a little above my limit for Christmas but I'm still in the green. xD

      How are you doing? Any plans?

    2. Xander Cousins

      Xander Cousins

      @Cyberspirit Not too bad Last stretch for the day till christmas tomorrow, working today and Boxing day so they will be fun. But been going good!!!

      (Soz for late response)

  11. I swear to god looking at second hand things to buy annoys me.


    a). Do not use image filters

    Like come on any image filter will flag a buyer off you post, because it looks like your hiding something. 


    b). Don't mark your shit as free when its not.

    If you put the free tag on your product sell PLEASE include at the start ideally [Not free open to Offers] *Product Name* as the amount of times i ignore Free Items on the second hand list is outrageous due to people then requesting such price for it.


    c). clean you shit,

    you want it to be appealing. Bring the buyer in by making it look well cared for. 


    d). Mark any damage or blemish.

    Fully photo all damages or scratches and other shiz as people will complain when it comes in the condition they didn't want it to be. 


    e). Last but not least detailed photos, the more you show detailed photos of the item the more it looks geniune and not a scam, and the more it shows you care about the customer by having said photos with it.



  12. @Windows7ge Nah didn't power on without the cpu, thing is the capacitors on the board are getting charged. I'll need to get a multimeter to it tomorrow and check how far the power is possibly getting.
  13. Apologies on poor resizing of image, these are being sent via a phone with limited. But thats the Motherboard, and the Model shown in the lower image
  14. PSU works, Fans work, GPU works only thing i cant test is the CPU as dont have another board to test it on.
  15. So i have a Gigabyte board here and its no longer posting when i press the power button on. I have tried removing all extras from the mobo bar the chip to see if it would post and still no response even when shorting the two pins, i was wondering if their is another way to power the board or is this a lost cause? I'll update the type of board when i figure it out, the pc its in is pretty old. Thanks for any feedback or advice in advance ?
