This is the one I will be getting.

I dont care about the cooler anyway as its a temporary measure until the block comes. I have been told this is a reference design so that makes blocking from an early date promising. I know its still a stupid price to pay for a card, but I feel like its a win win for me, comparing other prices, along with the sale of my current card. And the fact that the return guarantee is pretty damn good.


You disgust me....... I Love It !!! :D


Post pics when you get it please !

Ebay. Seller has 470 positive feedback, 0 negative. Paid through Paypal, return started.

So I'm not terribly bothered tbh. He sent it RMSD, so I am sure he is covered at his end (not that I really care about that tbh).

To humour it I am going to reinstall windows to a spare SSD and see what happens, but I wouldn't say I am terribly hopeful lol.

Maybe it has too much VRAM

Ironically I suspected that immediately. However, surely if it were dodgy VRAM he would have sent it back long ago. It wasn't, BTW.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHsI...el=Zomb13k113r

That is with the VRAM underclocked as far as it will go (about 430mhz) and it still does it.

However, he did tell me he had a NZXT AIO on it and "re padded and re tim" it. I would imagine the poor sod bought the wrong pads and has cracked the BGA.

Oh well. I sold my 2070 (WB non super) earlier and am expecting 500 next Friday so I may just do something really irresponsible.

hmmblah 05-09-20 04:38 AM

Damn, thought my night was frustrating, but I only lost an old SSD. Freenas is up though!

AlienALX 05-09-20 01:34 PM

Oh it got worse LOL.

We had the usual back and forth, with him trying to make me pay the return post. Eventually I showed him a link to Ebays policy and he rescinded. Which was good. He sent me a label, and then my brand new printer decides it can't see any paper. That took over two hours to sort out. No idea what it was.

Then I go to book a courier to send the 2070 to the guy who bought it, but he lives on one of the channel islands and thus the courier I wanted to book doesn't deliver there. So I had to book another one, which means taking the hefty parcel (there's boxes and all sorts of other stuff in it) to the post office on Monday.

I got done at 3am. That was after partially reassembling the PC which was nearly stripped due to the troubleshooting I had been doing on the broken card.

Oh well. "Mama said there'll be days like this".

I had this exact problem only a week ago, It's infuriating, You know what fixed it ? Turning it off and on a few times, Honestly 1 piece of equipment I wish the industry would make more dependable, Yes I love CPU's, GPU's, Fast storage, VR, High res/refresh rate monitors etc... but printers need some serious tech love, I nearly headbutted my desk in anger XD

Well I guess CDNs are a bit flaky, I can personally see both black late model 207s. Best of luck, from one PSA driver to another. :D

Biggest single purchase I've ever made and the reason why I've not had the funds to do a PC upgrade. Sure, I could have gone for the 65 inch variant, but I wanted the biggest/baddest offering.

Covid has meant I'm working from home and I've saved quite a bit as a result.

Since it supports GSYNC and FreeSync I'll end up hooking a PC to it at some point.

So these are the wheels I bought for my car after cracking two of the old ones on a pot hole.


I went with 17's because I didn't think I would be able to get 18's on it, turns out the 18's would fit https://forums.bit-tech.net/styles/s...smilie-cry.gif


I also bought the BMW centre cap's for them to use instead of the ones that came with them.


Tyres are 225/45 Continental Premium Contact 6 all round.


Wheels are 17" Autec Kitano (Type K) 17 x 7.5" 5x120 ET32 on the Front and 17 x 8.0" 5x120 ET34 on the Rear.



Not to bad for 890 all in and then an old car stereo to my brother that was collecting dust for fitting them as I don't have a jack.




Need to get the car cleaned and detailed but that is going to have to wait till I get paid, as I can wash it myself I have all the stuff but it needs a good cut and machine polish.



Pic's of Old wheels and the new ones.

Was on sale. Not that I don't like the Byski of course, the temps are just not fantastic (and the Byski was less than 30 when I got it).

Also on sale were these.

https://i.imgur.com/LaoMfHx.jpg

So I bought four. I will explain why in the build thread later.

KingNosser 14-09-20 12:31 AM

Kingston G4 128gb picked up 2 of these they hold a decent chunk most likely slow to write onto but nevermind once it's on them it'll just go pop one day down the line lol

https://i.imgur.com/77a3093.jpg

Also picked up the 4th mass effect game, it was super cheap and some vape supplys just hope they get here more quickly than last time around :)

I shouldn't have these but a few at a time won't hurt :P

Putting the new sound system on hold for a bit. I forgot how cold it gets in winter, so I got some winter clothing.

Went on a bit of a Kingston splurge at the local nerd store today, picked up a new HyperX RGB keyboard, mouse, and very large 900x420mm mouse mat, very much liking this kit!

New man cave is shaping up, just in time for winter. Thankfully I have a Threadripper rig with a pair of 1080TIs that I can use as a very effective space heater!

Not my photo, but the colour and model are exactly the same

I made a joke in store about this to a nerd looking guy "Does this one go to 11", he looked at me blankly while the female staff laughed. He never heard of spinal tap :(


I think he lost cool points with his colleagues based on the blank face he made.

AlienALX 22-09-20 12:50 PM
