    I'm not trying to be Mr obvious but for years now Intel have only given 2 refreshes on a socket, what on earth made you think it would be different this time ?

    Intel extreme tuning utility - AVX stress test

    Avx stress tests are cpu torture tests and all they do is serve to degrade your cpu, create lots of heat and consume lots of power. totally pointless/zero real world benefits and potentially damaging when limits are removed.

    Intel's Alder Lake CPUs May Not Work With Older Games

    100% I remember back in the days of Win 98 people complaining about windows XP and Legacy software but windows needed to move on from its backbone of Msdos and it did. I'm a huge fan of retro gaming but i don't expect Amd or Intel to stifle or compromise development for legacy software.

    Tesco Momentum 99... yay or nay?

    That's a completely different technology, it's pretty cool however, allowing per cylinder control of not only spark timing but also injector timing and quantity control.

    Looking for a Family car. Advice Please

    Lots to choose from , personally I'd avoid anything with the 1.6 hdi (tdci in fords) engine, their not the best and reliability can be poor with leaking injectors , blown turbos, fuel rail, dpf and egr faults. Audi a4s are pretty reliable, handle well for an estate and easy to diagnose faults...

    Tesco Momentum 99... yay or nay?

    You're correct it's just a passive sensor, I have never known of any ecu either factory or after market that uses the knock sensor to maximise performance. It simply detects detonation or pre ignition and the ecu adjusts to compensate on the fly, it's not 'learning' anything.

    Who here owns a Mini?

    I'm a mechanic and i would disagree, the main point being reliability. The Prince (PSA) engines fitted to the 56/57 are garbage. Crap timing chains, crap Vanos implementation (premature rear of the Vanos shaft teeth), engine breathing issues, poor quality Valve stem seals that lead to carboned...

    Questions about a tt99 ban.

    It was pretty dumb non the less , what was even more moronic was letting a member of the public 'detain' him........

    Questions about a tt99 ban.

    ; That's a given, there's only so much bad luck someone can have. The first 3 points was a simple sp30, the next was no insurance because he forgot to send proof of his no claims and his insurance got cancelled, at this point I told him to ride and drive like a granny, weeks later he get caught...

    Questions about a tt99 ban.

    Believe it or not that was exactly what he was doing, put new pads in a fazer and didn't see the pcso standing on the corner of the road watching him (wasn't wearing a lid), i don't know whether his biggest mistake was riding the bike that short distance or bothering to stop for the pcso...
