  5. Re: Considering an update to my build, or if i should start saving. Heat motivated.

    well, I went out and bought the EVGA 750 watter PSU and the gigabyte 960 with 4gb vram.

    Hey guys,

    Quick query before I dash off to work - I've been running my current build for the past 6 years now, and this summer in particular it's been a right space heater on the worst possible...
  10. Re: Random device on my network - general question

    Cheers wainui, I do think that even if it had tried connecting the router would've blocked it, but wanted to check. Ever since I swapped from the netcomm to the orcon netcomm (that's been shot in the...
