Time for a new rig, probably.

Well, that was a bit of a game wasn't it! Glad we got the machine straightened out eventually.

Yup, 1080 is in there 👍🏻

Hello, from the other side! Thanks ever so much @Jabo for your assistance this evening, we got there in the end. New rig up and running, all drives sorted and now leaving it overnight to dow

Has anybody used the Scan 3XS OC custom shop and is it worth it?

From what I can see, for example one could order this R7 bundle for £850 delivered, from the standard Scan site presumably tested but at stock speeds.
Alternatively for only £21 more, one can get the same bundle, overclocked with a 24hr burn-in stress-test. Helpfully, one can also spec this with the desired 32GB Ram as well.

Is it worth it, if this is something I could do myself at home?

I suppose that if it's OC'd tested and ready before it arrives means that if it goes bang, it's their responsibility?

Hmm...

Wow:huh:

 At these prices I'm starting to wonder about renting a virtual machine instead of owning a box of components that will be obsolete by year three?

Depends what you term as obsolete old bean. I built my i5 rig 8 years ago, admittedly it's had a few upgrades over the years, notably GFX and RAM, but it's still essentially the same rig and I'm now looking for something to set me up for the next 5+ years that'll be VR capable. Having said that, it is the GFX card prices that make me shudder.

Still beats playing golf 😎

I play golf...and I miss playing golf.:(

It's a stock response, insert 'football season ticket', 'green fees and clubs', 'bondage club' etc...

I'm sorry you can't go golfing at the moment though old chap, but there is end in sight now.

Besides, there's always virtual entertainment! 😀

Tell you what, I avan’t arf missed being able to fly and drive tanks while all this electronical gremlin malarkey has been going on. Really takes a chunk out of your (what passes for), social life these days. 🙄

This option is definitely starting to look promising.

I think if I upgrade now, this will be where I probably go next 'cycle'. We'll see.

No, Shadow (at least) say that you can use your regular peripherals. The problem is that Shadow are not currently taking new customers (you can pre-order and start paying now though).
