  1. If you're looking for something on the cheaper side, this is the backpack that I own and use on the daily. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Estarer-Waterproof-Backpack-Professional-Panasonic/dp/B07F73WG65/ref=bmx_15?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07F73WG65&pd_rd_r=4cf0b54e-5283-46fb-ac71-3530c4204f9e&pd_rd_w=t2Ivr&pd_rd_wg=rsubu&pf_rd_p=e6320139-ba25-40b6-bdd6-62a5a343ed3d&pf_rd_r=DZBJ4VHYGJ7ZK8N6VJ37&psc=1&refRID=DZBJ4VHYGJ7ZK8N6VJ37 It manages to hold my beefy AW 15 and charger, my drone, all it's accessories, all my la
  2. First of all, don't buy a windows product key, its not necessary If that was me, I'd swap out the ryzen 3 for a 5 as they aren't much more. Should be pretty good for some smooth 1080p gaming though!
  3. Have you thought about an Honor 10 or a used razer phone? I had to make the decision between these last month and chose the Razer.. Best phone I've had. Trumps the Mate 10 Pro and Pixel 2 XL I had previous. Bought a nokia 3 when it came out a few years ago and it wasn't great so I won't be going back to Nokia anytime soon. (Plus if you get an Honor 10 you can join the notch squad)
  4. I'd say the closest you'll get is Real Racing 3
  5. P Smart is better, although Honor 9 Lite is cheaper and slightly better (looks and performance). Or a used Huawei Mate 10 Pro, very cheap and have the same specs as a P20 Pro!
  6. Perhaps as time is going on, the speaker is slowly deteriorating and getting quieter. Has this been resolved yet?
  7. Tried updating every driver under the sun.. Google is telling me lots of people have this issue but there seems to be no solution
  8. Tried that \: Power saver doesn't exist, only balanced and High performance - both give same results. Thanks for the suggestion
  9. It's generally a little cylindrical piece of plastic with a hole in the top dangling off the motherboard. Should come out with a pull of the cable. Theres a chance it might be soldered onto the motherboard though, in which case you might be able to disable it in the BIOS?
  10. I mean if everything seems good to you, rip out the speaker on the motherboard? (if that's the source of the beep)
  11. Hi all Just got myself an Alienware 15 R2 and I noticed it wasn't quite as snappy as I expected it to be~ So I ran a cinebench R15 and got a score of cb161 (my old Q6600 system got over 200!) which seems wayyyy lower than it should be. Youtube videos show from cb500-550. Not sure what's going on here.. Any tips or something I'm missing? ++Just noticed the clock speed doesn't go above 0.78Ghz (see attatched photo) .. Can't see anything noticeable in the BIOS. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!
  12. Maybe try and push the graphics card up to a 1050ti or maybe even a 1060 or a used 970, 980. Other than that, great pc.

  14. I maxed out the clockspeed on my Asus 970 with that tool, I haven't had any issues~ I guess you could try and see how it goes.
  15. A local computer store actually sold me this power supply and said they had tested it for ripple before I had asked. He's a pretty knowledgeable guy who works there so I just trusted him. I was only looking something cheap, as I said, to test out motherboards so I'm not constantly taking out the PSU from my main rig.
