What have you just bought?


#242

I bought me some stuffs and cbd crystal powder stuff to make me own CBD Vape juice. Spent £50 total(roughly)… and the only thing I’ll need in around 125 days will be another flavour shot(£6-£8) and more CBD powder (£40ish)


#243

don’t get any ideas

I brought Jesters Christmas present :sunglasses:


#244

My new screen.


#245

Epic, ain’t it :smiley:

Once you go 32" 1440, you never go back. That doesn’t rhyme. Fuck it.


#246

Please oh please say you got non-reference cards :stuck_out_tongue:

Just sent both of my reference 2080Ti’s and the reference 2070 back on RMA after they all started presenting the artifacting crapola -.-


#247

Me right now:


#248

Who on earth buys reference cards?


#249

I didn’t buy them :grin: I also am not allowed to sell them.


#250

Ahh Nvidia “quality” control strikes again :smile:
Now as you did not buy them… tell me where you got them and how much blood/other bodily fluids you had to give.


#251

My parts are running late, god damn it. I was going to build the system today(sneak the stuff in the case before the missus notices).


#252

last 6 or 7 cards have been reference, all still working; the 8800gtx was briefly on fire and still runs. You burn your 2070 for 20 seconds and it still works and we can talk :stuck_out_tongue:

Not that i’d recommend running reference coolers mind, but that’s a different issue.

#254

Work perks :wink:


#255

Haven’t seen you on here for a while @GiantKiwi, what’s the current state of your 911 order? Can’t wait to see a pic of that - great car.


#256

I have an old EVGA x58 motherboard with 3 blown caps that still running after 5 years :smiley:
Does that count?


#257

Given all my hardware woes, you’d think this would be my “Thats not a knife!” moment, but the best I can dois: I’ve got a leaked on X99s board with two dead RAM slots and sound that crackles when I turn the system on.


#258

Oops… Again.

Numbered vinyl. One of 750.


#259

Cayman, and prospectively might have it for my birthday in April if I’m lucky as they halted production on them for a while due to an engine fault arising resulting in a recall - which has caused a large backlog :frowning:


#260

That’s unfortunate - still, better the recall and fix happened before yours was built and delivered - otherwise you’d be gutted having to wait so long, only to have to send it back again as part of a recall.

So, I was so impressed by the entry level Ryzen 3 1200 that I got that I decided to upgrade straight away (That sounds like I wasn’t impressed - but I am, especially by the Ryzen brand/range)

Sticking with the first gen of chips, I’ve picked up a Ryzen 7 1700 for £150 from Scan. 8-core with 16 threads, it’s a beast as a workstation on a budget, and will still handle games well.

If anyone is interested in my Ryzen 3 1200 chip, I’m happy to sell it here before whacking it on ebay. Used for literally a couple of weeks.
