    Pugs New Cinema Build (Double Garage Conversion)

    Yes, looks like you're right - one of those things, I should have read a bit more before posting although there is not much info out there about it. I have the Yamaha RX-A3050 which is getting on a bit now, so I can't test it myself as it doesn't have the Neural X processing. Try the Dolby...

    Pugs New Cinema Build (Double Garage Conversion)

    Just had a look at this and it would appear all the ceiling speakers are being fed the same signal, so fine for the rain scene in John Wick but it looks like you will lose direction effects, like a helicopter moving around above your head. Do the same Pepsi challenge with an Atmos demo like...

    Jobbie Nut Butter Pong for Gamers

    I thought this was a wind up. https://www.jobbienutbutter.com/blogs/ourblog/worlds-first-gamer-nut-butter-pong-zotac I think it'll need rebranding for the UK market as I've long known a jobbie to be something you would not want to tuck into with a spoon. Even though it has a dodgey name its...

    Best 4K movies to watch

    Mission impossible:Fallout is a great 4K disc, particularly the IMAX sequences like the helicopter chase where aspect ratio changes to full frame.

    Doctor Who

    A surprise, but a welcome one. As a long time fan of the show there has been so much I didn't like about the Chibnall material that I stopped watching it as it made me cringe. I'll definately be watching the RTD stories again in the hope it gets back on track again and he is given a proper...

    Second hand price insanity!

    Quick look on EBay and someone is trying to sell a 3080FE for £5699. Even in this current climate that’s got to be a punt too far.

    sk3lph's brand new Media/Cinema room

    Once COVID has blown over and if you're still interested in a demo we could sort something out if you PM me. 700 strand, giving about 35 stars per square metre.

    sk3lph's brand new Media/Cinema room

    Hi signs, I posted some info on the star ceiling back here, installed myself with help from a friend - lots of work but worth it I think. I hope you're going to post some pics of your project.

    Is a Quest 2 the way to go?

    I'm currently enjoying Half Life Alyx running wirelessly with virtual desktop in a larger play space with the Quest 2 and it is amazing - its a fantastic bit of kit and I'm so glad I passed on this game until now - definitely feels like it was worth the wait to experience this at its best - its...

    I broke it! | RTX 3090 Water block install gone wrong

    Absolutely brutal. I built a new system over Christmas with a 3090 and there was some nerves that I didn't botch it and break something due to what I spent, even though it wasn’t doing anything as advanced as this. Gutted for you - even worse that you waited a long time for it, no laughter at...

    The Ampere RTX 3090 Owners Thread

    Noticed the same thing with 3D Mark when I checked benchmarks when I upgraded my system to an RTX3090 and 5600X CPU with everything running at stock. You'll find that a lot of the benchmarks logged are running with some sort of overclock applied somewhere, so the fact you are below average is...

    Timespy freezing my computer

    If all your BIOS and drivers are up to date including chipset drivers the only thing I can suggest is to try and swap out your graphics card with your last one if you still have it and see if you can try and narrow it down to a specic component by swapping out other components to see if it makes...

    Timespy freezing my computer

    XMP and latest bios installed? Do your games crash? Are you able to swap out any components?

    The Ampere RTX 3090 Owners Thread

    Antec Skeleton Case that I got about 10 years ago and I like the unconventional looks although its a pig to work on. Not made any more as they didn't win many popularity contests. Not too bad for dust as the large fan can help to reduce it a bit and a quick blast of compressed air sorts out any...

    The Ampere RTX 3090 Owners Thread

    Got sick of waiting and caved in. Ideally I was after a 3080FE but its just too difficult and time consuming to get one right now, so went for this terrible value alternative instead. Lots of good gaming going to be happening on this over the festive period, Merry Christmas OCKers :)

    30xx Series Founders Edition

    If there is a drop of 3080s today that's going to cause some upset.

    30xx Series Founders Edition

    For me the additional expense of a new case would be the cherry on the very daft decision cake.

    30xx Series Founders Edition

    The 3090 won't fit in my case or I'd be having one, very annoying that the 3080 is missing again.

    30xx Series Founders Edition

    Missed 3080 again too - got as far as the linked web page before seeing the out of stock message - seeing the "Buy now" button there looked really odd.

    30xx Series Founders Edition

    Looks like FE 3070 and 3090 cards dropped on the Spanish and French Nvidia sites earlier today however no sign of any UK activity - the 3080 is notable by its absence in both locations. With production supposed to be ramping up, it definitely feels like they are not telling us something when...
