Overclockers UK Build Quality - Why Glue Fan to CPU Heat sink Instead of Using Supplied Clips? / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

So during the unboxing of a £1000 student gaming machine from Overclockers UK we straightaway noticed that the fan had been glued onto the CPU heat sink, why would they do that? After all Raijintek the manufacturer will have supplied clips to do that (CPU Cooler Raijintek Themis Black Heatpipe CPU Cooler PWM - 120mm ). So in this video we contemplate why Overclockers would do that as that is not the intended why the fan is supposed to be mounted onto the heat sink, watch the video and share your thoughts in the comments below.

Building 7 Desktop PC Systems in 14 Hours for Charity in 2001 for Shipment to Cuba / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

Once upon a time when 2001 was supposed to become a Space Oddessy reality Pentium class cpu computers were deemed to be the gold standard in desktop PC systems, and in that time those who had the knowledge and skill to rapidly assemble such machines were in high premium demand. And so I gave up my time to a local charity that asked me to build 7 working machines from a collection of donated parts, old machines and components that I had bought so that they could be shipped off to a collective in Cuba who were in much need of desktops given the trade blockade that Cuba was under from the US, so that this developing nation could start to join the information age.

Here's the video I made during my 14 hour ordeal, vowing NEVER AGAIN would I agree to build more than 1 computer in any one day, still this was for charity where the container ship was destined to leave Britain's shores for Cuba virtually as soon as the 7 or 8 machines were built and transported off to port during the morning.

Why GTX 970 is Nvidia's Best Ever GPU - Powering 4 Monitors at 1440p and 4k in 2021 / Personal_Finance / Computing

By: HGR

Everyone wants an RTX 3000 series card, but their ain' t no stock. So if you really need a graphics card what about GTX 970 which can be had on ebay for about £120. Why a GTX 970? We'll for one thing it can power up to 4 displays without cutting a sweat! I.e. the temps remain low. Unlike most RTX 3080's that are selling for well over £800, many on ebay over £1000 that can only power 3 displays!

The GTX 970 is a great card for many more reasons for instance unlike the power hungry RTX series, with a TDP of 140 it does not need to ramp up the fans so tends to stay quiet most of the time. Check out my latest video for why the GTX 970 is a great card for those who need one right now, as I power up 4 displays 4k, 1440p and HD to demonstrate just how good this GPU truly is.

Real Reason for GPU and CPU Price Hikes! RTX 3080 Now Costs Over $1100! / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

GPU's are seeing insane price hikes! For instance, 3 weeks ago I bought and paid for a custom PC build system from Scan computers that cost £3235 with components that included an Asus RTX 3080 TUF Gaming graphics card that was supposed to sell for around $700 or £500 but cost me £750 or over $1000. However the price has just kept increasing since were 10 days ago it had risen to £780, and today jumped by another £35 to £815.

Which at the current exchange rate puts that card at over $1100 converting to $1116. This is a ridiculously crazy high price for a GPU! We are really being ripped off in the UK to a very great extent.
