  1. anyone ever dealt with corsair RMA? especially in the UK/EU. I'm wondering how long it'll take to get my SF600 replaced because of the recall

      good to hear, I sent my ticket in on thursday, so hopefully this week it'll be sorted

  2. NZXT H1 is now on pre-order. 🙏

  3. I've been trying to justify getting a 3700X over a 3600 for the past couple weeks, but now I've started doing proper video editing and building up towards streaming more consistently, I think the 3700X is justified at this point.

      Mine's kinda been sat at the same price the whole time, as I've been factoring in x570 for upgrading to the 3900X replacement in 12-18 months time. Whatever I get, I'll probably sell to one of my friends later on down the road anyway

  4. So I've been all set on getting the lian li tu150 for the new rig, but seeing the NZXT H1 being released has made me look at some more cases, and now both the H1 and the Phanteks evolv shift are seeming very tempting for an alternative build style and I'm unsure which to go for

      I'm looking at the r7 3700x, either the b450i strix or aorus x570i motherboard and carrying over my evga gtx 1070. I'll probably go for the TU150, just because I'd rather have air cooling than an AIO these days.

      I haven't actually looked at any shift builds, what don't you like about them?

      True about the H1, it'd be really useful as a standalone build, I'd want to use a low profile noctua cooler on it personally

  6. Don't you just hate it when your ISP decides to give you a third of the speeds you pay for. Tried streaming some Overwatch and had tons of dropped frames, near 50%. I go on speedtest and discover the upload speed is 3.1 Mb/s, when we should be getting 9Mb/s. lovely.

    1. Thorium19

      Thorium19

      To be honest, the upload speed drop is only in the last week, but the download speeds have been at best half of advertised for the last few months, at all times of the day, even 4 in the morning. It's with sky in the UK though, so they can actually get away with it so long as some of their customers achieve the advertised speeds.

      If the upload speeds aren't back to where they are meant to be by tomorrow, I'll be giving them a call to sort it out however.

  7. Seriously considering buying a 1TB SSD to replace my 250GB MX100 and 1TB WD blue. Is it worth it?

    I'd use the MX100 as a recording disc for OBS, to later be offloaded to my external drive, and the WD blue would be plugged into an external casing and re-purposed as a network drive for my parents

    1. Thorium19

      Thorium19

      I could do that, and I was considering it with the prime day deal on the sandisk 500gb dives, but whilst I'd do RAID 0 if I had stable electricity, whilst I'm living at my parents they're prone to powercuts occasionally, which could possibly result in a corrupt RAID array. I could always invest in a UPS as well to be honest

  8. 2016 has been a really bad year, it's like everyone is trying to one up each other on how badly they can screw up. Is it too early to have new year?

      well as they say, every cloud has a silver lining, just a shame it's barely enough to keep spirits up

  10. For the people asking how we didn't expect this much traffic, aside from the fact that the issues we faced were only partly due to the high volumes of traffic, I should point out that this giveaway has had more responses than any other giveaway, already, despite being actually usable for less than 24 hours. The volumes of traffic that we're getting are simply unprecedented (and yet, the forum is now running faster than it ever did before the giveaway due to the performance tweaks that we made to try and stabilise it).

      I suppose there is that, but there's nothing like a good conspiracy theory for people to mindlessly moan about

      it'd be a bit odd for this giveaway to get so many more responses than any other, given we had a few giveaways only the other month with a very similar number of subs on youtube. Either it's been made way more public than expected, or maybe ZlUUWAf.gif

  12. Okay, so project: rebuild will be happening over the next couple months, I'm going to order a 1070 in the next week or so, then I think a new CPU cooler will be on the cards, considering a H80i V2 along with the possibility of more ram. Finally, a new 1440p monitor, some braided cablemod cables and some LEDs should wrap it all up. I'm hoping to have it all done by January when the 2nd student loan of the year comes in.

      Last summer yeah, although I did plan on getting a new GPU this summer anyway, the 770 is great and all but it is starting to show its age in certain games. Plus my monitor is a 22" 1080p TV which has awful viewing angles, fine for a secondary monitor but I've had enough of it. The CPU cooler upgrade is mainly because the current one causes a bad amount of dust buildup on the case window where there is a point of low pressure.

      yeah, most people are complaining either due to it not performing well for them, or because it's "not what they expected" when it was never going to be elder scrolls: the final frontier, which I think most people were looking for.

      It seems to me that it's mostly a very vocal few, and people running maxwell gpus that are having issues, I'm not the only one with a 770 that has it running smoothly

      with the 3rd finger mouse button, I can have 24 macros all mapped out on the pad, and I can cycle through 3 profiles built into the mouse itself, so if I use one of the 12 on each profile, I can have 69 macros all set up at once, all within a few button clicks of one hand. Pretty handy if you ask me

      I'll keep the G600, I can use it for other games, other rigs, I like having the 12 side buttons, they're useful for setting up macros for when programming

  23. Is it worth adding another 16GB of ram to my rig, even if just for bragging rights? The current ram in my system, hyperx fury 1866Mhz has jumped £15 in price in about 2 weeks, and it doesn't look like it's coming down any time soon.

    1. Thorium19

      it's when I'm at uni, I have chrome and firefox running, each with plenty of tabs, plus I'll have steam running, plus I'll likely have a few uni specific programs running that aren't the best optimised, shall we say.
