    Fractal Torrent Compact and Torrent Nano

    I've now moved my system from the standard to compact versions and from what I've found so far the compact seems to be within a degree or two of the standard version. Before moving across to the compact I tried running the standard version with just the 2x 180mm front fans to see what that did...

    Fractal Torrent Compact and Torrent Nano

    I'm not sure if more reviews have been published since but the ones I read yesterday either stuck to using the supplied fans which means the compact is down 3x140mm compared to the standard version or used their own usual fans throughout and didn't make use of the 180mm's. I've got a compact...

    Fractal Torrent

    They quoted 3-6 working days for delivery and it's just arrived less than 24 since they sent me the email. Excellent service from Fractal, less than 3 weeks since the problem was found an I already have a replacement. For anyone that gets a Torrent when they are back on sale you can tell if it...

    Fractal Torrent

    Fractal have now advised that my replacement fan hub has shipped so it shouldn't be long now before the Torrent is back on sale.

    Fractal Torrent

    Latest update I received from them on Friday was that everything is on track to begin shipment of replacement hubs next week so updated stock should be in the channel soon.

    Fractal Torrent

    It shouldn't be long. I got an email that they had started manufacture of the revised fan hub and that they will be shipping them out to those of us who had requested one by the third week of Sept so the Torrent with the new hub should be back on sale around the same time I would expect.

    Fractal Torrent

    I don't find the case noisy at all, I have it next to me on the floor and it's very quiet for an air cooled case (I used to watercool for years and was noise obsessed) At idle no fan spins faster than 600 rpm so it's silent to me sitting a metre away. At load the front fans still spin around...

    Fractal Torrent

    I got mine Wednesday and IMO it's a great case. I'm seeing lower temps across the board than with my Meshify 2 as well as noise levels being the same or lower. Fortunately I wasn't using the fan hub as I use an Aquaero but have requested a replacement anyway. The replacement request process is...

    How's it so hard to find a basic modem

    Another vote for the HG612. I was in the same boat as you and got one from a well known auction site for £18 about a year ago.

    BT Infinity & FTTx Discussion

    If you do decide to go with BT sign up for the 150 service and then upgrade it to 900. Mine was installed earlier this week on the basic service, I checked the upgrade options via MyBT the next day and got the 900 service for £54.99.

    do you regret going back to air cooled gpu?

    After watercooling for more than a decade I always thought I'd never go back to air cooling but I have and it's nowhere near as bad as I was expecting. The reason I'm back on air is I wanted a 3080 and planned to watercool it like normal but given the current supply issues all I could get for...

    Logitech Powerplay - Worth the premium?

    Exactly, mine's cost me about £1 a week so far and is still going strong so I think that's great value for money considering I no longer have to think about charging my mouse. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine :)

    Logitech Powerplay - Worth the premium?

    I've had mine for almost 2 years now and it's still going great, no fraying at all. I'd say it feels about halfway between and soft and hard mat. I know it's expensive but for me at least it was well worth it to get away from either wires or having to remember to charge a mouse.

    ** NVIDIA RTX 30 SERIES NOW ONLINE AT OVERCLOCKERS UK (3090 / 3080 / 3070) **

    My EVGA 1080 FE card was delivered on the 28th May so I can confirm they were definitely released the same day in the channel as direct from Nvidia.

    Spec me a post box

    The only drawback with these is they are very easy to steal from. My brother lived in a flat with one of these and post went missing regularly :(

    Yeah, I'm on Discord and follow what's being said, I've just had nothing to post about myself yet.

    Energy Suppliers (strictly no referrals)

    In case anyone else with Octopus is interested I dropped them an email to ask if they would change my direct debit to be variable based on the actual usage the previous month. I've just had a reply to say that's fine.
