Should say here that it`s a 4GB version.


Used to love my old Media Centre PC, great idea ahead of its time, though bad timing as Sky+ Box's came out shortly after. Used to be able to put my sky through it and do all the record, series link,pause live tv etc etc and straight to HDD, which you could remove and plug direct into any telly and play from the drive. Remember it even had that Lightscribe drive letting you burn a grey scale image onto a disk. Even sweeter when it was in the time of the Government Scheme you could get through most work places getting a discount and then paying for it through salary sacrifice, which off course they messed up since an "accessory" also happen to be an iPOD at the time lol.


Using a EVGA 600W1 (Supporting 49A on a single +12V rail) with my RX 580 8GB. Not to boast but errr. (it came with a little bit of white tape over the opening lol).


y you're welcome. fan-less are for media centre PCs (remember those?) more important is 12V Amps than total PSU Watts. Find out how many Amps your card draws peak then add 10-20% for headroom/startup load.


Can't speak for this GPU specifically but I have bought some previously from Ballicom and had no issues whatsoever. Return was a doddle as well.

:)) if you are not happy doesn't mean all miners aren't. I can tell you for sure who is for long enough in this thing will tell you that even now we make nice profit from rigs. Marketing and all other bulls*** are to scare and remove new newbies like you from this branch. Like always fewer miners better price. Nice price for this card but still nitro plus will rule over all rx580 in terms of thermo and efficency. P.S a ROI now is back to 1,5 /1 month depends on how much time you spend on research;) now do the math and tell me who is not happy that after max 2 month you are gaining profit. Enough with disclosure... we need more people like you to keep newbies away:d so kids listen to this guy...dont start mining...we are not happy :))


Bitcoin is still 80% above from last year.


Let them eat digital cake.


FYI guys ... the Miners are not happy .. Crypto currency have dropped to 80% of what it was at start of year.. miners are unimpressed.

How are 1080s cheaper than 1070s at the moment? It's crazy. I've been wanting to get a second 1070 but it's held its price to what I paid a year ago, more than this, 1080!


If you're mad into VR might be best to save that cash for 9 months and wait for updates headsets and new generation cards. If headsets go 4k or even QHD even the gtx 1080Ti probably couldn't run both displays at 90fps, so maybe put some in the bank for new cards


^^I only have one 1920x1200 monitor, but i do have a 4k 43in Tv which i use for big screen in steam, and i have tried games like AC syndicate and A:Isolation(this game in 4k is just a work of art) at 4k, and apart from dropping the AA and AF and shadows down to low it ran perfectly fine, although the 970 is not really a 4k card, but it does do the job and so i am finding it hard to part with plus £400 simply to make a few VR games look a little better, but at least my wallet is happy this BF sales, as the only thing i have bought is a Star Trek BR box set. :)


I am upgrading from a well overclocked 980 , while it is fine at 1920x1200 it seems to struggle in some games, and it is especially bad when i have on 3 monitors at 1920x1200 :(


Good deal, i had this in my basket and i was hovering over the buy button but this GTX970 OC i have is making it really hard to upgrade to these cards at these prices because apart from needing a little more oomph for supersampling in the few VR games i have, it plays everything else just fine..........i know, first world problems. lol But heat anyway.

I ordered one recently and am awaiting delivery. Looking forward to it.


Nobody shopping for a 14" semi-ultra portable, is going to buy a very heavy 2.6kg 15.6" 2" thick desk based laptop. You're also going to have to immediately upgrade the SSD on that MSI for any sort of gaming.


i know that... but im talking about value here. both are briliant choice anyway.


It's a completely different class of laptop so like comparing a Mini with a Focus.


for £20 more this is a much better value... bigger screen, much better cpu, has a actual graphics card and many more ports!

28/10/2017 that deal has ended


Google "The Ultimate Server" I use it for THAT and because someone kept finding that Steam streaming box thing, I put Steam on it with older games (although with my GFX it handles games up to 2015ish quite well). I also use Blue Iris on it to monitor my cheaper cameras (got NVR for better cameras). Lastly I use Photoshop on it and After Effects which runs ok although takes an age to render so can't recommend it for that. My recommendation is, buy a small SSD for the OS and increase the RAM. I got a 128GB SSD and 16GB RAM with Windows Server 2016 installed on it. Boot time is around 30s so a restart for updates is never too annoying. I've also managed to put 4 hard drives on the RAID with 2 2TB mirrored for stuff I never want to lose and 2 4TB combined so 8TB there for multimedia files. I did have to buy another SATA card to be able to use the CD ROM again though as motherboard only has 5 SATA slots and I used them all with the 4 HDs and 1 SSD.


Out of interest, what do you use your Lenovo Think Server for?, or ... thanx. :-)

3930K and 1080Ti says "7% bottlenecked". Don't even know how you can be a "%" bottlenecked. It's either bottlenecked or it's not, it's a 1 or a 0, on or off. Daft calculator is daft.


Not sure how accurate that calc is, says a skylake 6700K and 1080ti is bottlenecked, no way that is right.

Aside from the lack of compass, which is indeed a serious flaw, I fail to see why you think this is an inferior quality phone with a big price. This deal cannot be compared to a grey import for obvious reasons, but when looking at similarly priced UK sourced phones, I think this is a tough act to follow, not least for the all aluminium build quality, the dual lens camera (a first in this price range) the selfie camera uprated to 8 megapixels, coupled with a decent mid-ranged Snapdragon 625 Octa- Core processor an 3GB of RAM the reviews indicate a fast, responsive handset with no lag, even with some high end games. The performance has been remarked as being almost on par with a flagship phone costing 3 times the price. The full HD screen is perfectly acceptable and hardly noticeable to a 4K screen, but has the advantage of running more efficiently. The reviews are generally pretty good on the whole. I would be very interested to hear of which handsets you feel offer better quality, better specifications at this price point, which is not a grey import.

Wow what a bargain, although you will get people moan about 1080p at 27" , personally I love the high frame rates, although I have g-sync to help.

Screen tearing doesn't really bother me, the only thing annoys me is microstutter. The idea was to sell the 1060 and get a good deal on the RX 580, about same performance and good enough for 1080p and I could use freesync, but no driver support for my OS. you should just keep your 1060. 580 is a sidegrade and adaptive sync isn't all that.[/quote] Keep hold of your 1060 and wait for the inevitable mining crash, then pickup a cheap 480/580 second hand.

BOXNUC6CAYSAJ - £192.33 on Amazon inc shipping (£186.33+ £6.00 delivery), at the time of writing, (though I note the seller has only 83% from only 105 total ratings, so I would probably go with the Ballicom deal, personally, if the CPU spec meets your needs)


Cold. Dont need to share anything.


£200 for a weak quad core, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and a box that has the bare minimum of ports (ethernet, USB, HDMI, no type C, no displayport). Looking to china I can find mini PCs for a similar price with 4GB of RAM, 120GB of proper SSD, a stronger quad core (N4200), and the only thing they lose is the VGA port. Still got licensed windows. The kicker here might be wifi, this NUC includes an AC grade wifi card which you haven't mentioned.


Heat given. A quick look around and can't find this model any cheaper.


I'm not taking it personally. Would like to see the greater wisdom behind the auto cold clicking. This is a deal. If someone can point to a better deal then that's what I want to know.

Price down even further from a few days ago. now £195 with free shipping for the 8gb version.

You're not wrong, but there is absolutely no reason why your SSD should be above 40C. Getting back on topic however, I received my RX 480 yesterday and I'm really impressed with the performance at 1440p.


Few 1 star reviews on google (maps) for delivery being slow, warranty claims and DOA / RMA poor service. Hope you get a good one and don't need to return it!


56c is no where near dangerous for an SSD, they are made to operate up to and beyond 70c. Heck even the bare m.2 drives don't throttle until they hit circa 90c


Pretty much why I bought this for my SFF case too. It exhausts all/most of the hot air straight out of the back, rather than back out into your system. My SFF case has no internal fans other than the one on the GPU and CPU cooler so this does the job!


Go buy a card with an open air cooler and see how that works out for you with your CPU, motherboard, HDD and SSD temps in a SFF build. Spoilers: I was doing it wrong and that's how I now know I'm not doing it wrong.

@Simon_H It does sound like it might be faulty, i looked at all the issues with the 480 when troubleshooting and most were reboot loops driver related) or random shut downs (PSU related). I've got the 480 working now with the 16.7.1 drivers but i updated and Windows crashed, rolled back and it's fine but i am getting shut-downs when gaming even though i set the cpu to stock so definitely a PSU issue, mine's a 550w antec truepower fwiw but maybe try the older drivers. The only other thing that worked for was installing the driver manually via system the installing the radeon applet and using Trixx to set the clock speeds but obviously such workarounds are not idea with a new GPU.


Speak to Ballicom tomorrow and process your RMA, usually takes a bit of time and you can always cancel it. It sounds like it's dead TBH, if it was a BIOS issue it wouldn't post at all. Not a great experience for you!


Tried all options you have suggested, not overclocked either, only one not tried is in other machine, this is tricker because how many pc's can slot in a rx480? Its not so small and I thought my humble machine was enough ! I'll try in a mates pc then ill speak to ballicom ...... Thanks for the input.


S**t! -Have you tried flicking the BIOS switch on the card? -Do the fans spin OK? Unobstructed etc? -Was it overclocked? -Have you tried removing all additional RAM/Drives from your machine and booting? -Tried resetting your BIOS to default settings? -Tried the card in a friends machine? Try some/all of the above and report back, otherwise it looks like RMA time. Here are some alt. options depending on how your RMA plays out: 4GB: 8GB: 1060:


Got mine 10 days ago, not worked for 9 1/2 days.......... Installed drivers, all was good. Played bf1 for half an hour, all was well, and then screen was playing up, flashing etc. Now it wont even post on start up. Says no signal from card.

Sign up to a free course and you can get one. There's lots of posts about it on here.


Personally I'd be concerned about the drive being priced (and if you believe it, specified) for running in datacentre configurations, if you're not going to stick it in a RAID array with loads of other disks, it's just paying for unnecessary features, especially since there are other cheaper 10TB disks out there. If you were to stick one of these in a RAID 5 array, I wonder how long a rebuild would take if a disk failed, I found 3TB disks painful enough, and have abandoned RAID 5 for all my larger systems. At the moment I'd be looking at 8TB drives as the sweet spot, about 1/2 the price of the lowest priced 10TB. Assuming you're happy to rip them out of the USB caddy. mike
