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!

inertiat

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

XP200

^^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. :)

nikolarun

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 :(

XP200

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.

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.

The_IMF

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.

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.

£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.

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.

bingowings85

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!

Uncommon.Sense

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

CHAOSEN3

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!

Joshimitsu91

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.

The_Hoff

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!

Simon_H

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.

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

mbuckhurst

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

I have an ML10 v2, and will be sticking with it... The ML10 v2 has two ethernet ports, and I was really hoping for front USB 3.0 ports. It's also about £70 cheaper to get hold of a compatible Xeon if you're happy with used. Maybe the Gen10 will look a little better...

juux

I don't know what you're looking at but both machines have 4 RAM slots and 4 internal 3.5" drive bays, although the HP, being taller, does have an extra 5.25" bay which could be purposed for additional drives (e.g. 2 x 2.5") if required. With some imagination you could stuff either full of velcro/tie-wrapped drives if you're desperate. It's all a bit of a moot point anyway; there's plenty space in both for any realistic use, and if a huge amount of performant storage is a need then you're probably looking at the wrong solution with either of these two servers. I can't see any reference to 're-casing' the T20 on eBuyer. Would seem a rather futile and expensive way of doing things. If you need a small server, just buy one? And if you do, why all the fretting about drive bays?

borak

It shows 4 bays available on each? Also one of the comments on Ebuyer states that while you can transfer into a smaller case (which I would do) the headers are different and some other cables would be required, there is also only one RAM slot so although you can get more RAM it has to be a single stick, that and I'd not use either 32gb or 64gb. The processor is more 'future' proof for sure but I wonder how many hours and PITA messing around I'll have to do to get it to where I want it? I'd also need to buy DDR4 as opposed to just using a stick from my existing system. Edit: The T20 looks like it may have to taken itself out the running anyway as it's case is bigger than I want so downsizing the existing setup looks the best option and that is the ML10 if I'm going through the processes

borak

You make a good point to be fair.

juux

This one? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/dell-poweredge-t20-intel-g3220-4gb-ram-500gb-hdd-mini-tower-server-delivery-ebuyer-2594521 Yes, I get that is a bit smaller and it comes with a (cheap/slow) HDD but has older & slower CPU/memory, it's more expensive than the HP (after cb) and will similarly be unable to be rehoused in a Microserver-size case. The £20-odd you save buying the HP goes a fair way to buying a small SSD for the OS, hugely improving the responsiveness. It's your money though :)
