  1. [VIC] Bit of a bargin for someone wanting to try valves in Hoppers Crossing. Tempting but really have no use for them lol https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/hoppers-crossing/headphones-earphones/hifi-6j4-6p6p-tube-preamp-and-6n2-6p1-tube-power-amp-combo/1271753993

  3. Hi, Not sure what your budget is or how big your PC case is but, I'd start with the CPU. Upgrade to the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 - Motherboard dependent. What is your motherboard would you know? Would really help with offering suggestions. Then grab the GTX-1080i from the classifieds, can't believe this is still for sale. I'm so tempted myself lol. Then depending on your motherboard, look at memory, then maybe new fans for cooling. A quick fix / stop gap could also just be a good clean out! You would be amazed at how much fine dust gets into everyth
  4. Hey @vpreef Highly recommend getting Tony to sort out your screens when he can get down this way.
  5. I thought the same thing when I first seen this thread. It wasn't until I did a bit of reading did I join up. I thought it would be far to easy to lose everything with access to my PC lol. A useless piece of information, F@H was added on the Sony PS3 & brought 15 million users at it peak. A review on F@H & Covid19 There's even a soft master list of distributed computing projects Fancy pants card lol, 1080Ti I feel is still the best bang for buck GPU out there. With the silly prices for a 2080Ti & now the new 30 series cards you can't go past the 10
  6. Hey Muon, Didn't mean to come across as correcting lol I've only been in this since last Wednesday night so I'm def no expert lol. From what I have read, the CPU only folds on 1 core & is used for sensitive calculations were the speed of multi core / thread GPU's may have an error. The speed of the GPU has something to do with Cuda cores. A 1080Ti GPU has 3584 Cuda cores which is way faster then a i7 9700k CPU with 8 cores. From the Nvidia website.. "In GPU-accelerated applications, the sequential part of the workload runs on the CPU – which is op
  7. I think folding performs more on the GPU then the CPU. With this PC I'm folding on both CPU & GPU. The PC at work has no GPU so only folding on the CPU. On both machines the CPU folding is much much slower. CPU Folding GPU Fokding
  8. Thanks Jamie, I'm real happy with the ML's, lot's of life in them. Yep correct, ML's are mainly for TV & movies. The Osborm's are only used with Cyber's. Depending on music & whats happening around the house. The osborns seem to be open, airy, a bit fairy sounding to me, light. They do have detail & bass but not like th 60's. If it's a Dragon Force metal type of day then I prefer them over the Osborns. The 60's just have more body & fill the house lol. Thanks Dean, I have 4 more day's of leave left so might go looking for them
  9. How rude of me not to reply Jamieboco, sorry, think I took your advice tho lol. Well, seems I've been lurking around here for about 4yrs without saying to much. One day fades into the next & the years really do go fast, or I have no concept of time more like it lol. I'll prattle on in here for a min or two. A fair bit has changed on our TV wall in that time. Looking back when I started it looks so, blah. I'm happy were it is now for the moment but still things to dick around with I guess. I ended up sealing the window behind the TV, so that's gone &
  10. Hi Luc, I read your post in the "Show us your computer audio system" thread & thought it better to reply here. Your PC noise is prob a mixture of old Mob & cabling. That rear case vent needs a clean as well A couple of thing's I'd change / add on your shopping list, I've linked to PC CaseGear just so you can have a look at the info yourself. 1) Get rid of the Wraith Stealth Cooler, the research & funds went into CPU development, not cooler technology. Yes it will work but for long term spend a few extra bucks & grab a Noctua NH-D15S it com
