    Thread: GP suggests PC builds

    Looks solid, swap the memory out for the Crucial stuff that doesn't cost much more but is CL16.

    edit: specs actually say its CL16 but the title says CL17, odd.

    Thread: Yet another need new gaming rig advice thread

    Don't cheap out on the motherboard, get one with decent parts as you may find you want to throw a 8/12 core part in, in a few years. Cheap boards won't handle that upgrade. When I say that i'm...

    Thread: Yet another need new gaming rig advice thread

    Probably, add it up and see lol.

    I'd be looking at the 5700XT too, you could probably sell it next year when next gen Nvidia / AMD releases and end up better off overall. If you found it wasn't up...

    Thread: General Tech Chit Chat

    I know on newer stuff, dual channel is quite a bit better than single. I'd probably stick with 2x4GB until you can upgrade it (if you need to that is). On the plus side you can at least keep the new...

    Thread: Auckland Property Prices

    Not a house but a section. Agreed on a price over their kitchen table, sent it off to lawyer to have the suitable terms / conditions added in. Easy enough. Just make sure your lawyer is on to it and...

    Thread: CPU air coolers on a GPU?

    $150 or so for that cooler, but I guess if cost is the main reason you could try your luck with a smaller cheaper one. Can't see cheap air coolers coping though. Imagine cracking the die fitting that...

    Thread: Tech Deals

    Do you think they'll just let things through till end of year before making GST an issue? I wasn't sure how abrupt they'd be. As in anything hitting customs on 1/12/19 would get hit.

    Thread: Tech Deals

    Anything ordered now onwards is likely to be affected by the new GST rules. Will be interesting to see how that works.

    Thread: CPU air coolers on a GPU?

    Yeah you'd need some decent airflow around the VRM / memory chips. If swapping on a CPU cooler i'd go the way of Kraken bracket + AIO.

    Thread: Recommended plans for open incoming ports or fixed ip

    I rock the BigPipe $79 plan (albeit 200/20 because CHCH area) with fixed IP, have done so for three years now without an issue. At the time the plan was the cheapest (or at least close to it) but the...

    Thread: Auckland Property Prices

    It's all very easy to say that, when you are financially sorted. For most people they do what they do, to get ahead. If you have no money, then your time is worth very little. When you have all the...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    Yeah running no SMT would be the go if gaming. Even then, games don't use near enough cores for there to be many gains. Whichever chip has the higher clocks will win after a certain core count. I...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    I'm not likely to talk to anyone that buys a ~$1000 chip and uses a stock cooler thankfully. Most people I know tend to go AIO these days, because bling.

    Temps are one thing, but if you're not...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    Pricing will come down to stock levels I imagine. The more stock the closer we get to RRP. CPU's aren't usually too bad, except when companies do paper launches and don't have the chips to actually...

    Thread: Have you made the jump to 4k?

    OLED TVs absolutely vary in quality, to think otherwise is a bit odd. The panel is only one part of the end result you sit down to watch. While series 7 isn't on the level of QLED, it's certainly not...

    Thread: GP discusses the latest CPUs & GPUs

    Yeah my comment was in regards to the previously mentioned i5 9600k which doesn't have hyperthreading / SMT so is 6 cores 6 threads total. 3600 is much better with its 6 cores 12 threads.

    Easiest way is to visit a decent hifi shop and get them to demo you some gear. I went with QAcoustics for my lounge, great value for money for the quality of sound you get. More expensive doesn't...

    Thread: Running Ethernet - Should I?

    If you have black plastic down, that means it's doable at least. Just pay a sparky to suss it if not keen.
