  1. Hi all, So I need a new chair for my PC and I have a budget of £300-400 There are 2 routes I see currently. Either a used good Herman Miller Mirra 2 for around £350, or a brand new gaming chair like noblechairs hero or something similar I am not looking for coolness factor, all I want is comfort, great ergonomics for my health and looks would be just a bonus In your opinion which option should I go for and why?
  2. I am in the exact same boat, core temp reports around 60 C° temp when I am just watching a 1080p stream and web browsing, which is outragous. What I see is the voltage is really high (1.4V when watching a stream) and the CPU is boosting all over the place rapidly, so it might be a cooler issue (I will change it if I see a sale or have funds, its a bit small) but it can be a boosting issue, check these numbers. I will try to find more information on this behaviour
  3. Right I sorted it its all good Cause: Battle.Net Call of Duty Modern Warfare dowload corruption. They are aware of the issue, not sure about the whole corrupting partition tables. Symptoms: Disk shows up in Device Manager, and Disk Manager says it needs to be formatted. Solution: DONT INSTALL ANY OF THE PAID SOFTWARES FOR PARTITION RECOVERY, THEY ARE NOT GOING TO WORK, ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE FROM DODGY COMPANY. Learn from my mistake, as a diagnostics engineer with panic, I have made this mistake... Get a software called TestDisk. It is free, command lin
  4. Hey guys, I was trying to install COD MW from the battle.net launcher today, and it just could not. So I have closed the program, restarted my PC and now I it cannot find the partition on the SSD. On that hard drive I had a save folder with some old pictures and data I would like to keep. For some reason I have placed my save there and not my save SSD that I usually do... Is there any way to recover those files? I am aware that there are some freeware programs out there that I could use, but not sure which one should I go for. Disk Manager sees the drive but it sees

    CSGO Low FPS

    I have a 144Hz monitor, but when the FPS goes below 150 FPS, the spray gets choppier. Look, I know it sounds ridiculous, but this is the only game where I need that high FPS. Before I have upgraded for 12GB, I had 8GB and a GTX 770. I got roughly the same FPS on the same settings.

    CSGO Low FPS

    Hey guys, So I just upgraded my PC and I have noticed that my FPS is not shooting up for some weird reason. My current set up is i7 3770, 12GB RAM (4th memory slot is poo), GTX 1070 I am usually playing on 1080p, low setting, very high shader and no MSAA or FXAA and I get only around 200 FPS, with some dips below 150. While I was watching the major with high settings and a bit of MSAA, I had got around 80FPS. Temps are fine, nothing goes above 50C, GPU load is around %60, and CPU load is %70, nothing gets maxed out. Online I have seen an average of 300FPS
  7. Normally I would say you are right, no preorders. my first and last preorder was Titanfall 1 If they would ship me a box of shite with a picture of CD project red employees giving me the finger with an extended gameplay video on floppy disks for £200... I would say still worth it
  8. I will preorder the collectors edition game. I might not be able to pay rent but I do not care
  9. If that would be the case nVidia would have told us right away.
  10. holy cow. this thread is amazing. It started out in April 2017, expecting the new line of GPUs, and they just got announced a year and 4 months later. This has been long 2 years
  11. Not sure, as there is a major price difference between 1080 and 2080, why decrease the price, they are not competing? I expect a 10-15% price decrease from shops, but nothing that was unseen before
  12. he always compared Ray tracing performance with no RTX cards which made me worried. It reminds me quite a bit for PhysX
  13. Few things: In the UK, the Nvidia 2080/Ti cost the same for both the FE and board partner cards roughly speaking. there are a few cards that dip below FE prices by £50 but thats about it. For the price increase, I think it is a viable think to complain about prices. Yes, people are able to afford it and yes, it is an expensive hobby and you could get into much more expensive hobbies... Then again, prices ARE going much higher, and here we saw a tier or two jump in price, which was not here before. It made a few changes, like people calling 1070 a mid tier GPU, which was high t
  14. Hey guys, After I found a great deal on a 360 AIO, I jumped into it and there are a few weird things I need help/second opinion on My CPU (i7 3770 no OCd) I have a pair of cores (C0 and 3) that runs 8C cooler than the other two. Is that normal, or is my mounting a bit weird? when 100% aida64 load is applied, the same thing happens, I have 2 cores at 45 and 2 at 50. It is cool, I just find it weird. Also, I connected the AIO fans to the case fan headers. It made me think, should not they be connected to the CPU fan header, as they are practically the CPU cooler fans?
  15. It was £300, which is a decent value for a used GTX 1070 Amp Extreme ( quickest 1070 it seems). Yes, it was, as new ones are like £350 here, used ones can be had from £260 if you are lucky, but £280 ish are the normal prices in UK The original guy you qouted was a different person, sorry for confusion
