    The Long Awaited: Fresh build

    Will 4GB really be an issue with the higher throughput and better management? I am surprised about HDMI 2 or DP 1.4 - does that mean its even possible to output 1440p @ 144hz with the Fury? (or even the R9 390?) With this coming to light it would seem an NVIDIA option may be the best choice...

    The Long Awaited: Fresh build

    Thanks for the responses folks: Regarding graphics cards - I've noticed the 1070 and the rx480 - how about the fury? Which seems to be priced squarely in the middle. At £300 it certainly looks interesting. Even though it does have HBM, would the 4gb be of concern? i.e. enough to futureproof...

    The Long Awaited: Fresh build

    Got licence. Do need monitor, don't need to factor it into the build though, it is likely to be 1440p 144hz - inclined to go freesync. Form factor not an issue. I did hear about the 1060 - what £ is it coming in at?

    The Long Awaited: Fresh build

    Nice build sweols - thanks - does seem rather budget conscious though. Would easily spend a bit more. I'm also inclined to go for a superflower PSU, having had some insight into whom manufacturers for who.

    The Long Awaited: Fresh build

    Greetings fellow OCUK forumites - it's been a while. The time has come for me to enjoy the endeavor of specing out and building a new PC. I've had my trusty OCUK bought i7 920/r2e rig for 6 years or so and I now feel there has been enough movement in the hardware space to justify an almighty...

    7970 matrix vs dcuII-top 280x

    Greetings folks, Currently looking at purchasing a new graphics card, in fact i purchased it three weeks ago but them supply's man. I bought the DCU 280x, not the top, which is still out of stock at 250. However, the top is in stock and can change my order to that for a small fee of...

    i7 920/rampage II Extreme

    excellent thank you, however that's what I was trying to avoid. Already had that link saved in case i fail to find what I'm needing. Anyone got the actual figures for a clocked 920 D0 at 4-4.2 not fussy as to which. If the clock fails and I crash and burn, I'll do the methodical from...

    i7 920/rampage II Extreme

    Hello there, been a while since I've posted on here. Straight to the point. My overclock is gone. I haven't played around with any of the settings, apart from the usual suspects boot priority etc. and the clock has removed itself. Went to the Asus oc profiles and there is nothing saved...

    ♠.Scarlet Spade.♠ - watercooled + modded lian li build.

    You sir, are a genius. Was enjoying the build log anyhow, a very intuitive approach. Adore this window mod, was looking towards a tinted/reflective window myself, however, like yourself I find most tinted acrylic somewhat "cheap". Do think I shall be borrowing this idea, much obliged ;)

    What Restaurant did you eat at last night?

    I am based in Forres and have to agree with the above comment completely, a slight disagreement on the portion size though - can never get too much :D. Only ever go in for the lunch, due to the dinner service being full usually, and the starter/main course set is the one to go for, why...

    too much candy... after many hours spend researching for the yearly upgrade buzz, I thought I had finally settled on a 6950 (unlock of course) but ocuk have managed to throw a spanner into the works yet again. Currently running a 1gb 4890, which I have found a buyer for at £100, since it...
