you could, but that would need the space and connectors for 15 drives, the whole point of these devices is to increase the capacity in the smallest footprint possible for data centres where space costs money.

8 of these in raid 10 please.

I have had two of these keyboards, first one had key chatter so I had it replaced. The second is fine in that regard but the general quality of the keyboard is not great. The key caps themselves wear out very quickly and the silver corsair letters peel break off if you not extra careful when cleaning it.

Why does any company sell refurbished products?


Because customers have found fault within the warrant period.

There could be a know manufacturing fault so they can replace any faulty components, if not then it's probably not worth their time to fully inspect and, for example, how do you know if a key(s) are worn? Even if if you can replace individual keys.

If you're lucky, a customer has invented some non existent problem within the warranty period.

The company may be need to get shot of a lot of keyboards to outprice a competitior or they have excess stock.

The volume suddenly changes in BF1 when music plays and it's quite distracting.

I've got two of these and as another user mentioned, it appears to be a daisy chaining issue. Assuming you turn DP1.2 on for daisy chaining and use the stock cables, you shouldn't really encounter it, maybe once in a long while. But if you're using your own cables you might get it. My setup last year used a long third party cable to monitor 1 and then stock cable to daisy chain to monitor 2, this gave me the black screen issue when it goes into standby or sometimes from a cold boot. There is a simple fix, just turn both monitors on/off from the wall plug at the same time, or in my case just the extension cord they were both connected to.

This year I've moved and my new setup uses only the stock cables that came with it and its been fine, not had the issue since, at least not yet lol.

I like the monitors a lot, can't comment on using more than 2 monitors in a chain, I plan to find out sometime in the future.

You should have returned it, your unit is clearly faulty (assuming you weren't trying to get it to supply more than 650w).

The continuous output rated temperature for the CS650M is 40C, according to Corsair themselves (see the "Tech Specs" section): corsair.com/en-…psu

For me slower hard drives always win out for my type of usage. Once files are on these sort of drives I'm rarely transferring to and from, and I find that slower drives seem to last longer than their faster counterparts. Reliability wins over everything else for me and my WD Green and Toshiba 5400rpm drives have lasted me years. Every 7200rpm I've had has eventually given up the ghost after shorter periods of time.


Without fail you always get plonkers that don't get why people use these sort of drives commenting on the sort of deals. It's guaranteed that if a 5400rpm drive gets hot someone will come along and say 'Slowwwww'

i was just being lazy not typing the ti bit.. point still stands.. 1080s are not far off this price.. id want a 1070 ti to be sub £400

Good price, these are over priced for what they are though 1070's should be around 330-350 mark and 1070ti's should be 370-390 price point. Might as well pay 20-30 more and get a 1080.

Voted hot as it's only just under the power of a 1080 and it's a bit more of a premium card than the cheapest 1080's. Based on the £419 price you'd have to find a 1080 at £450 to be equal value. You certainly won't find an msi gaming 1080 for £450

Bad buy. If you really want a 4 core/4 thread CPU, the i3 8350K is at least £10 cheaper (£169.99 on overclockers and in stock) and you'll at least have some semblance of an upgrade path with a Z370 board, even if you only ditch the i3 for an i5 8600K in a couple years.

Can't really recommend this unless you want to upgrade from say, a Pentium G4560, and even then it'd be a waste because you likely wouldn't have an X270 motherboard to even overclock this CPU on.

Eh, not really. You'd need a LGA2066 board to put it on, which are around £200 for an entry level board. For CPU and board, you could pay £377ish for that, or £280ish for an I3 8350K and Z370 board. The latter also has better IPC and will clock higher.

or the i5-8400 (Not over clockable) 6 core @ £189.49

so gamers go i3 and everyone doing graphics or design or rendering go i5 until its upgrade time...


what you think?

In general I’d agree with one massive exception. Sandybridge made the previous generation look like toys.
Likewise the Q Core 2 Duo based processors set a healthy tradition too.
Best make that 2 exceptions

Down to £78 now so getting there

If the new price for one of these is £121 then B grade returns should be half that price to be even considered half way to being a bargain. £60 would be a deal price at £80+ that is overpriced for a damaged returned item.

Yes

I spoke to them again yesterday. They were given estimated delivery of 30th November from supplier.
According to them is due in anytime and will be shipped out straight away.

I got the same confusing email last night.

I thought about cancelling but I'd be hard pushed to find anything similar with a 4k screen for anywhere close this that price.

Think it will be worth the wait.

I’ve only seen 2k used as shorthand for 1440p, what does it mean if it’snot that then?

Use Google translate, pretty positive and the price is good. Tempted, but slight concerned from one review that it will be too bright.
