  1. Hi everybody After almost 7 years of loyal and trusted service, my Nokia Lumia 520 has developed a faulty screen on/off bottom and is therefore heading towards retirement. This means that I have to get a new phone. What I really want is to have the same exact phone, in regards to size and features, but the market has moved passed that. I had some requirements, but because I still live in a 2014 era of smartphones, I can be flexible on these. I don't want a large phone. Why new phones have to be the sizes of small tablets is a mystery for me. I want a phone to be
  2. I wouldn't call it a budget, but I don't want to spend more than 3000 DKK ( 400-ish Euro, 450-ish USD) per monitor. I live in Denmark, and want to avoid buying over the borders (Warranty issues and similar things).
  3. After 4 years of running a mismatched pair of monitors, I have decided to upgrade to a more unifying set. After looking at what I can get from my workplace's supplier, and found some monitors that I might like. However I'm not to sure which ones I go for. Since my current primary monitor is a Dell U2515H, a 25" 1440p IPS 60Hz panel, which is the second best monitor I have ever used (Only surpassed the Dell U3415W, which I used at a former workplace) I was thinking of buying the newer Dell U2518D, which is basically a Dell U2515H. This is my "safe" option, since I'm already know wha
  4. This video reminded me of a test I saw (and screenshot it) from about 2011/2012 where they tested all the popular thermal paste and some more questionable choices, with Mayonnaise being as good as the average thermal paste. As I remember they used used a i7-2700K at stock with a Custom Water-cooling setup, but I might be wrong.
  5. I have seen something similar to this, but in a ITX size MOBO + case and with custom watercooling. However it was made in 2012 and used top-of-the-range parts of that time i.e two 7970 in Crossfire and a I7 3930K, so it is not performing as well as this one.

  6. Now I really want to see if Linus are so committed to buy expensive tech for this series, that he will buy a Riverbed SteelHead DX8000 B010 WAN Optimizer, just to make a video saying the more specialized the tech gets, the more expensive it gets.
  7. I DGAF the audio since I use my head, which is dying, and that is why I am looking for the best quality for the money, so I can maybe get a new one, soon. The Monitor is still as fine now as it was in 2003(Year of purchase), but is dirty AF, so maybe I should buy it to have a more "clean" looking desk. And from what I have heard, a DP - VGA is goinjg to works as good as a HDMI - VGA, which is not good. I was told from a colleague, that those type of adapters have a 25/75 success rate, and I am not the gambling type of guy, and are not willing to take that kind of gambling with a pr
  8. Hi again My gaming rig had almost been bought, until I noticed that the GPU (Sapphire Radeon NITRO R9 390 8GB) I was going to buy had only digital output, which is not a big thing for most, besides for me who has a VGA only monitor as my monitor of choice for using Firefox or OpenOffice, but now the monitor's life is hang in a thin thread, but because of the fact that, I can't live with out a 2nd monitor, I am now thinking about either buying a HDMI to VGA Converter and the cheapest HDMI cable, but I don't know if I can still use the proper resolution for my monitor (1280 x 1024p) since Th
  9. Good to know that you all agree on the Dell is the best one due to it's IPS panel. But I have been think(not always a good thing) about downgrade the resolution down to 1080p and get the Samsung 27" LED S27C650X. I like to save money where I can, and the Samsung have a PLS, which I remember is a better panel but should I just stick with the Dell or go down a notch and take the Samsung one?
  10. Hi again I have now the overall rig planned out now, with only the monitor giving me troubles, hoping that you guys could help me. The planned specs is: CPU: Intel Core I5-4690K Motherboard: ASUS Z97-AR RAM: Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 8GB Black CPU: Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 412 Slim GPU: Sapphire Radeon NITRO R9 390 8GB PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2, 750W PSU SSD: Samsung 250GB 850 EVO HDD: 4x Seagate Constellation ES 500GB in RAID 10 DVD drive: Standard HP Blu-Ray reader/DVD writer combo Case: Antec LanBoy Air Blue/Black OS: Windows 8.1 64-Bit(Upgrade to Windows 10) I
  11. Is there anyone else who wants to add something, maybe on the monitor situation which is still not solved, or should I take it up with the monitor subforum?
  12. With my relative limited budget, I have the choice of a more powerful GPU or a larger monitor, but not both, unless i reevaluate some of the parts, like the Cooler Master V750S, 750W PSU instead of the EVGA one, and take the Sapphire Radeon NITRO R9 390 8GB GDDR5 instead of the 970 or the ASUS GeForce STRIX GTX 970 4GB one (Those two are at the same price) . Thanks for the information. The reason of why I was thinking of taking the Skylake one, is the F-word(We all know it isn't the one that rhymes with duck) I was self thinking about using RAID 10, but then again you ain't m
  13. Hi Again I had a build ready, thanks to people here, but then Skylake appeared, and I waited to the release, but now I am torn between going with the cheaper Devil's Canyon and the more expensive Skylake. The planned specs which are more or less set in stone: *CPU: Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 412 Slim GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 970 4GB PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2, 750W PSU SSD: Samsung 250GB 850 EVO *HDD: 4x Seagate Constellation ES 500GB *DVD drive: Standard HP Blu-Ray reader/DVD writer combo *Case: Antec LanBoy Air Blue/Black OS: Windows 8.1 64-Bit(Upgrade to Windows 10) The *
  14. Hi Everyone I am finally getting a new PC build, but with Skylake "fast" approaching, I am not sure on whether or not to buy compounds now or wait until Skylake is upon us. I have planned to buy an I5-4690K, Asus Z97 AR-Black motherboard and 8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3, but I don't know how much there is going to change with Skylake. I plan to use the PC as a gaming rig, that will run, GTA5/Online, Bioshock Infinite, Fallout 4, Star Citizen, Battlefield 4 and possible other future games at 60fps & 1080p and no streaming, and the planned lifetime is 3-5 years for the PC, and I know
  15. This there anyone, who is going to say anything more, or should I take the silence as it doesn't f*****g matter which of those two it is going to be?
