Thing that annoys me with SSDs is how cheaper they get after I bought one. If I knew the prices was gonna change within a year, I would've held it off a bit more, since a 128GB SSD now costs the same as what a 64GB one did. Stupid, typical markets. The same will probably happen when I replace my HDDs, I'll get two 3TBs or something, and then something like 5TBs will pop along at half the price.

Wish prices suited my needs.



Kinda really hoping my brother decides he wants me to build him a new PC, with money from him up front... just so I can offload my currentl AMD lot and buy myself a mobo+i7+680. Out of a £900 budget, spending the £250 on his case, PSU and RAM and salvaged parts from his old should leave me with enough cash to get them somewhere on a bundle hopefully. Shame that'll never happen.

That's why I jumped on the SSD now. It wasn't expensive at all. Hell, if and when the 500GB+ drop to a nice price, I might go for one. But 128GB and 256GB are in the price range for me.

We decided in the 12th GD that the 30 page rule is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

Well he kinda just disappeared... The Slayer and not even a notification bomb will bring him back.

You say that, but I'm not wrong... plus it was Barbossa that said that, not Sparrow.

Here it comes....

FUUUUUUU!!!!!!

So, Intel decides to use thermal shit in the Ivy Bridge. What does this crap mean? Nuclear Spikes on my *bleep*ing CPU! And why is that getting me mad. Well...

I've about bought a whole NEW PC replacing parts. That's why. My shit kept on freezing. Thinking it's my MOBO, HDD and PSU. It's not.

Thanks Intel for allowing me to shell out money because you're using thermal "paste" on your new chips.

*bleep* YOU!

There are ways you can replace that with proper stuff, but it's not recommended because one wrong move and you've killed you CPU with a heck of alot of explaining to do to Intel. However, even with decent cooling, whilst you'll get high temps it shouldn't ever get so bad it'll freeze, atleast on aftermarket coolings. I know Ivybridge suffered from bad temps but only in the worst case scenarios have I see them actually freeze.

Mind you, AMDs CPUs are designed to run cooler than Intels... shame AMD can't actually match performance otherwise they might have actually reclawed serious market share from that.

funny how AMD used to run hotter, but then again, what do you expect from a first gen athlon without a heatspreader?

speaking of thermal paste and such, whats a good one to get that isnt too expensive. i may be looking at replacement parts for my computer soon.

I've got my new screen connected, but I'm missing something. How do I get it to work?
The problem is that the new screen is black. It won't turn on even if I set it as the new main screen. What kind of ridiculous bullshit needless complication am I still missing?


The fist one to solve this will get a box of cookies, so get cracking!

Note: The promised cookies may not be the kind you like and they're only redeemable during a two day period after the above problem is solved and only if you show up in person to claim them. Even then you may have to wait until I go shopping.

EDIT: Solved, see the next page.
