  1. So it turns out that I’ve bought the wrong mobo. Back to the drawing board...
  2. So some definition of the word fun I wasn’t previously aware of...
  3. Oooo. Shiny PC bits have arrived!
  4. I went for a Z370 board simply to keep the cost down, there was no way I could afford to spend £150 more on the 9900K so the Z390 didn't seem to offer enough to offset the price although I get your point. I'm not considering anything more than a very light overclock once I'm happy that everything is good, so a solid, reliable board was all that was important. You've got a great setup there with that board and processor Kev!
  5. Interesting, I hadn't realised we'd gone for the same CPU - what mainboard chipset did you go for? Z370 or Z390? I don't think I have a problem with reconfiguring the sims, as they are all installed in folders off my system drive. I should be able to install windows, add the shortcuts back in and Robert is your mother's brother. It won't work like that of course - I suspect I'll be installing the bloody lot, but hey ho. I'm just debating at the moment when I shall do the work - I have a fortnight off at Chrimbo so that would be best but the stuff is due on Tuesday so...
  6. I've got OS installation withdrawal symptoms Arthur. Windows 10 has been super reliable so I haven't felt the need - so a major upgrade seems to be the sensible time. It'll be fun...
  7. I have - just pushed the button on a 9700K, mobo and some odds and ends. RAM is courtesy of Sid so there's an upgrade there too.
  8. Isn’t it. You’d fall over else
  9. I'm not sure there's much I can't do right now, the 980GTX is still going strong (just as well, I'm still paying for it), but the i5-2500K is getting a bit long in the tooth so maybe time for a change - I'm not considering VR at the moment so I'm not maxing the graphics at this point. If Sid still has the memory available, I'd save a few quid and buy the bits separately - I have a compatible water cooler so don't require the big air.
  10. I'm considering an upgrade to this (assuming my Christmas bonus comes in) - worth the money? https://www.scan.co.uk/products/3xs-z370-overclocked-bundle-intel-core-i7-8700k-coffee-lake-asus-tuf-z370-plus-16gb-ddr4-be-quiet!-d

    Salty tea anyone?

    I feel somehow damaged.
  13. And why not? Video works now - probably all due to vexatious problem of the Sidmouth border post-Brexit.
  14. The video you posted the link to. When I ran it I got the error screen posted above.
  15. Unavailable in the UK apparently?

    Corgi Models

    Hi Guys, Just to give you a heads up on some Corgi models I'm selling - Currently up for sale are; Corgi Aviation Archive 1/72 WW2 Gloster Gladiator Mk 2 Model No AA36201 Corgi Aviation Archive 1/72 WW2 DH Mosquito PR.XVI (USAAF) Model No AA32807 (Limited Edition) Corgi Aviation Archive 1/72 WW2 DH Mosquito RR299 CHC Exclusive Model No AA32811 (Limited Edition) Corgi Aviation Archive 1/72 P-47D Thunderbolt "No Guts No Glory" Model No AA33806 (Limited Edition) The models are on eBay as 'Buy It Now' items as opposed to an auction but I am prepared to discuss Dogz Rates if anyone's interested. More models will be available in due course.
  18. I've currently got access to all four of these, but I'm pretty much completely off DCS as I don't find it particularly fun and given the various health issues I'm dealing with, an extra dollop of stress I can well do without. So, since I'm sticking to '46, CloD and BoX , I'd much prefer it if we didn't change too much especially as we have just made some major alterations and it might be sensible to see how that beds in for a few months first. Incidentally TF5.0 is about to go into closed Beta for CloD so that might make things more interesting once it's ready - might be a bit longer than two weeks though.

    Who has what

    I've got BOBP Premium now as well - still missing the Yak-1B, 109 G6, LA5FN and JU52 (probably not going to bother with this one)

    Actually, this is even odderer as my signature setup looks like; And the text is there but the image doesn't show...Anyone have any thoughts as to why?

    Yes, but the image had disappeared and then earlier today it was back and now it's gone again.
