    Coil Whine / Capacitor Squeal

    Be very wary using nail varnish as it can contain acetone which may melt the insulation on the coil windings. As already stated, hot melt glue works well, this is what used to be used on old TV's with their old cathode ray tubes and scanning coils to silence them. And you think the whine from a...

    Oculus Rift Dev ownership - My thoughts

    Possible new display for Occulus HD Did not Occulus state that the consumer version of the Rift would use a higher resolution display, well, I think the New 2013 Nexus 7 fits the bill perfectly! with its 1920 x 1200 @ 323 pixels per inch display. This could display in theory 960 x 1200 to...

    Watch out - Thunder bug alert!

    New Build, Pass judgement on this please.

    Quite true, I think I may still stick with the Intels as the Sammy's are ever so slightly sl;ower, but without actually trying both I doubt they would be any difference between the two. The Intel's are currently swaying me with their 5 year warranty.

    New Build, Pass judgement on this please.

    When I finally start building and overclocking whatever I get, I'll have to take some pics etc and post in the project logs section of the forums. Should end up being quite a decent PC.

    Project: ケイ - Watercooled Threadripper

    How you planning on filling this, is there another plug in the top of the rad?, remember, your fill point will have to be at the highest point of your complete water loop system.

    Yes, I did consider these but decided on the reliability factor instead after suffering issues with OCZ in the past

    New Build, Pass judgement on this please.

    Well, my trusty Striker 2 Extreme looks like it's finally bitten the dust, it went BSOD and even the most determined efforts to recover the system failed. At least I managed to recover my data and files. Anyway s, the new build. Please give me an answer on any potential issues that you may...

    The best screen you have bought

    Had a Iiyama 17" vision master pro, damn good monitor in it's time, and the best one was my Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 22" which enabled me to get 10th in the world rankings of Unreal Tournament Instagib (For one day only though!), used to play a lot, seriously a lot!, unfortunately it died, I...
