    Not a lot going on these days or is it just me?

    Make a upgrade

    If you are going to upgrade the GPU then a new power supply, in my opinion, is mandatory.

    OCC Forums

    I'm talking about the members (30) not the guests (5K). The guests don't contribute to the forums. If logged in members doesn't matter then that's fine. I'll say no more.

    Does that not say something if it's happening month on month? Isn't funny? What do the stats say? I usually pop by everyday and in my opinion the quantity and quality of the forum content is going down?

    Ultra Products War on Everyone

    1050W for a server? They aren't the best power supplies out there but they are far from the worst.

    Another Soldering Thread

    I'd go for the Weller. It's got to be better quality and spares for the Weller are widely available.

    What's going on?

    I haven't folded for a while but recently completed a couple of units but didn't get any points? I will probably start folding again once I upgrade my graphics cards because the GTX460's aren't up to anymore. In fact it might be time to upgrade the lot!
  14. I'd also suggest the Seasonic at that price. Don't worry too much about Bronze compared to Gold efficiency because it takes years to make up the price difference.

    Hard drive recovery

    If you have an identical drive I would try swapping the printed circuit boards.

    Charging USB devices.

    I have a Belkin 4 port USB 2.0 hub with a 5V 2.5A power supply. Surely something like this would be enough?

    What I did today .......

    No need to apologize, everything's good. Don't drive for fifteen hours, it can't be good. I'm knackered after four!

    Free Anti Virus Recomendations

    Continued using MSE through its shortcomings and never had a problem. I will add that I'm careful what I download or open and I think that helps enormously.
  22. Very nice system! I take it you haven't got a dedicated graphics card yet? I'd go for the Cyberpower, it's probably more than you need but should serve you well especially since you intend overclocking and fitting a 790. It will keep you going for a few minutes but if your monitor is powered from this source and you continue gaming I'd be looking to power down after a few minutes during a power outage.
