I remember getting the 850W variant for cheaper on flubit last year. Still going strong after a lot of abuse

Good psu but doesnt deserve heat, thats been the price all year round. Its always on ebay for less too.
The ebay one is from America and has £30 delivery on top...
it's not been the price all year round, it was the price 6 months ago but since then its been £100 avg... this is a good price if you are buying now and don't have time machine...https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20750xr?history_days=180
All im saying is youre not buying this for an amazing price, its cheaper than elsewhere but not that much cheaper, like 10quid cheaper, it doesnt deserve 300 degrees

Hmmm, way too much power for my new build (Skylake, integrated graphics). I might as well use a EVGA Supernova G2 1300W I have lying around here. A bit of an overkill for a ~20-80W build.
Excellent PSU's. I replaced an AX760i as my PC kept failing with the 850G2. My PC is on 24/7 and hasnt failed yet. Highly recommended.
I do not think any Corsair PSU's are Tier 1 anymore.

Won't working some older boards. That don't allow PCIE booting
I know Fiat used to own Ferrari but you wouldn't stick an Enzo engine in a Panda.

I also wouldn't put a V12 petrol engine in a few year old PC that given the lack of relevance for Moore's law these days is still plenty fast enough for the vast majority of tasks but would still benefit from faster storage drive speed.

How about a Z87 based 4770k system? Even with PCI-e 3.0 it may still only support it as an add in drive and not boot.

geez 950 pro far better option, nvme 512gb, 2500 MB/s read, 1500 MB/s write / 300K IOPS
It's a shame the 4KB random write speeds on the 950 Pro are a bit slower than other SSDs.http://www.anandtech.com/show/9702/samsung-950-pro-ssd-review-256gb-512gb/7http://i.imgur.com/IRCooDl.png
There also the potential issue of thermal throttling.http://linipc.com/blogs/news/65282629-samsung-950-pro-review-thermal-throttling-solved
With the ATTO Disk Benchmark running the longest possible test with a total write length of 32GB and a queue depth of 10 it is possible to clearly demonstrate the effect of thermal throttling on the Samsung 950 Pro.
Once the amounts of sequential data reach 32KB the drive is able to hit its maximum performance of 2500MB/s read and 1500MB/s write.
However, as the test progresses, these numbers start to tail off, and in the end the drive has fallen down to around 1700MB/s read and 1100MB/s write.
If you look the AIDA64 Extreme sensor output on the left you can see that the drive is reporting a temperature of 74C, which would make it appear that the thermal threshold for the device is around 75C.
With our custom thermal solution we were able to reduce peak operating temperatures by 37% and keep the drive running at full speed while at a comfortable 47 degrees Celsius.
Whether you want to get maximum performance or you just want to extend the life of your drive and your system by maintaining low operating temperatures a custom thermal solution is definitely recommended when deploying the Samsung 950 Pro.

Hi buddy
ye this was tested on a z97 motherboard with old drivers, these don't represent the m.2 drive there are many test from benchmarks were people have used z97 (max 10gbps)
the z170 boards are wide open bandwidth and if you look at ssd charts you can see those with low scores were on older z97.
this is more in the range of what you'll see -
Samsung SM951 512GB:
http://www.legitreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/sm951-cdm.jpg

a little more speed on the 950 pro @512gb
And a little less speed on the 950 pro @256gb
both sm951 256/512gb are the Same (ish) speed wise.

As for the heat well it's not really an issue Samsung wouldn't have released it if it was and thermal throttling only happens when you heavily bombard the drive (100gb single file) then within seconds it cools again but you'd need to be hitting it hard also thermal throttling is their to extend the drives life and won't ever be an issue on day to day, also worth note that simple heatspreaders will go along way should you even need them, although as I say it's unlikely you'll be thermal throttling at all, there are also small heatsinks if you need them, but all is really needed should you be using it that hard is good airflow over the top it, or it has been noted that those with open fan gpu's close by there drive either push air onto the m.2 or suck hot air off, making thus again a null point.

I prefer the sm951 - 256gb is more than enough for me its faster than the 256gb 950 pro.
if you want 256gb go with the s951 as I said its faster cost me £110, if you need 512gb then the 950 pro is faster than the sm951 @512gb, also make sure you go with nvme the pro's are all nvme but the sm951's are both in versions ahci and nvme, nvme is better and can be noticed on a z170 or pcie adaptor card for anyone on z97.
To give people some idea what's coming down the pipe......

http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/6773/samsung-xs1715-1-6tb-2-5-inch-nvme-pcie-enterprise-ssd-review/index.html

mentions a 3.2TB U2 SSD using 3D Nand that has a data transfer rate above 3000 MB/s in Sequential read speeds.

One of the biggest problems touched on in this thread is thermal issues with shunting that much data that fast.

By the end of next year though I wouldn't be surprised to see 3TB+ SSD drives in either M.2 or U2 break the sub £1000 barrier......sell your hard disk drive manufacturer shares now folks.

=£245
post it then

950 Pro is a better option for both size and performance.

Problem is the M.2 format has some pretty fast moving things happening and manufacturers are getting caught out, Plextor has a Generation 2 PCIe x2 (lane) M.2 device that 9 months ago was state of the art and is now a dead duck walking....however they are still trying to sell it at the same price as units with nearly 3 times the performance and at a cheaper price (Look at the Plextor M6e 512GB vs 950 Pro to see how bad it's got). Plextor want over £300 for a drive that frankly is now way below par compared to what the market has done in the last few months....so expect to see them remaindered into the channel in the next months.

Here's the 950 Pro 512GB for under £250.

Won't be a deal for everyone but seems like a pretty good gaming setup - a good i7 processor (an actual quad-core) and a GTX 960m card. It's actually a German product and is cheaper on amazon germany

I managed to get this spechttp://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-y50-15-6-4k-gaming-laptop-black-10107216-pdt.html
Direct from Lenovo for £708 on a special offer. Great machine and this one posted has better processor and graphics! One issue I have though. The keyboard can be awkward. Not great for typing essays on.
Please tell us how you got that spec for £708?... I know Lenovo have cashback offers, but that doesn't bring it down to that price.


It was on offer through blue light card the emergency service discount website. Think they had 30 units available at that price.

I've just actually dug out my invoice and it was £720 with a 2 year warranty

last question, if I get the HDD version, could I install a SSD?

Microsoft Cortana in Windows 10 is not enabled by default. If you want to use it make sure your language and region settings in Windows is set to UK and also download the UK speech/language pack:

If you are not in the US, it seems you have to download and install the additional language pack for SPEECH (definitely applies to the UK, and possibly applies to all other English-speaking countries too).
1. Go to SETTINGS > TIME & LANGUAGE > REGION & LANGUAGE
2. Under LANGUAGES, select the listed language already there (in my case English UK)
3. Click OPTIONS
4. Click DOWNLOAD LANGUAGE PACK to download your chosen language
5. After the download has finished, go back up a level (still under TIME & LANGUAGE) and choose SPEECH
6. Your new language should be selectable under SPEECH - select it.
7. REBOOT (the changes won't take effect until you do).

Simple way of converting the Nordic keyboard to UK.

Change the keyboard region to UK and they buy some "keyboard stickers" from Amazon or Ebay. They're vinyl stickers you stick on the key caps to change the symbol. About £2 and you only need stickers for 5 symbol keys.

Hi there, yes they do - but its 720p recording and for a limited time. These devices run and run with no time limit.
I though the newer console's had built in twitch streaming ?
It appears 1080p recording is limited to 30fps, though if you're recording on a console that probably won't matter all that much.

personally prefer my nas's to be small microserver sized, but its a cheap server board.

Agreed, but I needed more disk capacity and the cases that support 10 x 3.5inch disks also tend to be able to take a standard ATX motherboard.

just be aware that the performance of that marvel controller will most likely be pants in comparison to the intel one, and of course your arrays would be split by each controller.

With ZFS in FreeNAS you don't use the hardware RAID anyway, the OS needs to see each disk individually to be able to monitor disk health properly. You are essentially just using them as standard SATA ports.
Ah right, so other than the the controllers and disk , your cpu will be what the bottleneck?

It's dependent on having a decent chunk of RAM as well, I don't think you need a massively powerful CPU:

Would oc pentium be good processor for a server?

To be able to use ECC RAM you need a compatible CPU:
http://ark.intel.com/search/advanced/?s=t&Sockets=FCLGA1150&ECCMemory=true

The Intel G3258 looks like a good low budget CPU that fits the bill if you don't need loads of processing power. I wouldn't recommend trying to overclock a server CPU though as the key with servers is stability rather than raw speed.

Hi All

Built mine yesterday and stuck Windows 7 on and it flies with 6GB ram and a 120MB mSata, I did not realise this was the quad core I3 even better value, I am still waiting for my WIFI card to drop through the letterbox now to complete it, It is going to be .... i have no idea yet but at that price had to buy it.

Sounds brilliant.

Would you know if there was room for a mSata > sata convertor at all? Like this:

I've a spare sata ssd drive.

Hi

There is only room for the Msata and WIFI card space is really tight, I have put the WIFI card in now but wondered why the WIFI signal was so poor then realised i forgot to attach the arial :|

All up and running now and i am very impressed with it, It does get a bit warm as there is no fan but this is a lot faster than my ASRock
I3 with 8GB ram it is only a dual core though.

It does have a fan, on the bottom of the motherboard. It is only dual core but it's hyper threaded, so it's got 4 threads like a (non hyperthreaded) quad core.

That adapter doesn't supply power AFAIK, there are some that do which I've been thinking of getting to use with a half slim SATA SSD I've got spare. Not sure if enough room inside for the cables though.
I doubt you'd fit a standard 2.5" hdd/SSD in there.

Be better off with a USB caddy for one if those I think. Or one of the newer nuc boards and a case with room for the SSD.
Nah, ssd won't fit. I ordered masta and the guy sent the wrong one by accident, it was a 1.8" ssd, doesn't physically fit even if the connectors were not an issue. The slot is pretty close to the side of the box.

You could run it off USB to make use of the drive, but guessing performance would suffer. I am running mine off USB stick just now until masta drive arrives.

Hope that helps.

cold, OTG cable usually £1 on ebay + 16GB flashdrive for around £5 = £6

But this is a different proposition to carrying round the otg cable as well-don't think it is a reason to vote cold. Don't think the thread is based solely on how cheap you can get 16gb of storage connected to your device

not worth £14 more IMO... OTG cables are usually very small anyway :)

The Transcend 32gb OTG flash drive is £16.50 at Amazon so paying £2 for an OTG cable and then maybe £12 for a 32gb regular flash drive gives a £2.50 saving

I quite like the look of these, how well do they fit if you have a heavy duty case?

This is HotUKDeals. Not CheapestPriceForAParticularItem. When compared to other solutions to gain 16GB of extra storage space on a device this is massively over priced. The extra plastic (or lack thereof) does not justify the difference.

Ridiculous point-this isn't simply about getting more storage to your device it is the practicality of having storage on the go that you can use in any device on it's own without separate cables. It's like me saying there's better solutions (because it can be done cheaper) than the speaker deal etc you have posted in the past

You missed the boat mate. You could get a basic full sized lap top for £299 minus £100 cash back last week (all gone now). I similar offer will no doubt reappear soon enough if you have the patience for it.
There's a couple of refurbs on Ebay from Argos, be interested to know if they are any good, was only hoping to spend around £250.

I like this one better. It is £20 more but the CPU is faster and has an SSD/HDD hybrid disk. Battery life in theory should be better with Ivy Bridge but they both say 5-6 hours.

Very good price actually. The same card is only Scan's Today Only section for £179.99 and delivery is still another £4.12 so that makes this about £20 cheaper than Scan. Also better than the cheapest price on Amazon which is £185.
Yea this is for the other version without the twinfrozer :|
Picture on Msi is the same as Lamdtek, you just have to search the manufacturers part number N660TI-2GD5/OC. Your pic and review refers to the twin frozr.

Good find. I will deliberate about buying one of these and they will be long gone before I decide either way.

I thought the same thing. If you don't mind using eBay it's on there for £84.90, but it's new other (customer return).


Your deal is also a customer return...... "Item condition: ordered in error, open box product in perfect conditions"

Yeah missed that. I do really need to update my gtx260, but I think it can wait.

Didn't work anyway. They cancelled order and refunded, it's in very small print in their T&C's.

I suspect those that ordered this motherboard will get the same as it's showing as £150 inc VAT now
Yea they were coming up as normal price when I checked. Good luck.
Followed the OPs idea and went through the "Design system" route, picking AMD3 FX as the processor. Bought up a list and the FX 8150 came up as a choice at £16.95 exc VAT and delivery. With those included it came to £24.46 delivered.

Ordered it and i've just checked the invoice which says payment has been taken and despatch is being done. There were several processors stupidly cheap including the 4 core 4.2Ghz one at £17 but I think they've corrected themselves as mines now coming up at £126 exc VAT now (after I went back to order more :p ).

The fact they've taken payment though, and they are showing as having many in stock narrows down them trying to get out of it.

Will let you know how I got on

Oh well, at least I had you guys to stop me from buying from them :)
Awfull company Lambda-TEK, a staff member came on here and called all of its customers STUPID.

HP delisted them as a partner as they were selling imports as uk stock.

AWFULL COMPANY -

read for yourself before buying

DO NOT RISK BUYING ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY
Avoid like the plague, bunch of cowboys. These are EU stock and not eligible for cashback.
They are a HP global partner and can be found on the HP website. They are based in Oxford. Does that not qualify?

The bottleneck with the mech harddrive is not really the interface, nor the transfer rate but the access time, which is defined by RPMs.
Though note, if the nominal transfer is only achievable at the beginning of the drive, it halves towards the end of the drive.

Anyway, the thing that puts any mech drive to a crawl is fragmentation and multitasking. Fragmentation may slow down drive to 1/20th of the original speed. Thankfully Windows7 defragments drives periodically, which prevents the situation going that critical.

Regarding multitasking: if you read a file and write a file at the same time it will decimate the overall transfer rate as each seek from one location of the disk to the other takes time and then you have access time of 12ms average (lower for drives with faster RPM).
And then imagine antivirus kicking in, OS indexing the drive or creating thumbnails.

That is why I recommend an SSD with stable writes for anything serious as then all becomes dead simple and dead fast.

TBH, Do you REALLY need a 7200RMP HDD?

Heres a Samsung M8 that sells for around £65 and is 5400RPM:
http://www.storagereview.com/samsung_spinpoint_m8_review

And heres the Seagate Constellation.2 7200RPM:

http://www.storagereview.com/seagate_constellation2_and_constellation_es2_hard_drive_review

Have u read the previous comments? 5400 rpm gives the lowest data write speeds out of any drives they may as well be sata1
7200 is better giving 80mbs but still is no where near sata3 speeds

15000rpm is giving 180mbps write speed

Yes if im rendering video taken with a DSLR I meed 80mbps even more if i buy the new GH3!!
But probably this is all unecesary as I dont think im going to be capturing much higher than 80mb/s for a while yet so I can wait for the SSD's and my current set up should be fine
I already have a 128GB samsung for the OS potentially I could upgrade to 2 512GB SSD's and read and write to both of them??
So basically wait till the 512GB SSD drives comes cheaper. Get a 2TB external USB3 to keep all the files and work on stuff off the SSD? That will achieve maximum perforance that an increasing my Ram from 16GB to 32GB

Cheaper at Expansys..
Heat added. I paid about this from Panamoz as a grey import earlier this year so to now be able to get it from the same price with no warranty worry's is brilliant.

Couldn't be happier with the phone.
