  • Bad Raven: Is the issue Turnigy or Turnigy Nano-Tech? I have found that mid-blue Turnigy tend to be low on their stated "C" discharge rating.

  • ched999uk: RaceDayQuads have some cheap but good batts out now. Josh B tested and stats say very good especially at price. HobbyRC have 1300mAh 4S just under £20. Not had luck with Turnigy lipos either!!

  • Reman: Just realised that I hadn't gone through my stored Li-Po's for about a month. I try to visually check them every Saturday, And prod the plugs with a multimeter about once a month. Todays seen 12 more bulging packs go out to the incinerator..... All but one was a bloody Turnigy! Part of me wan't to burn the rest now and just get a load more Tattu packs, But I've spent good money on these packs and wan't to at least get a little more use out of them. :(

  • Bad Raven: Pre MR's I used to buy a lot from J.Perkins. Their website showed all items and stock or due date, go to dealer and buy with confidence. Then they went all "lifestyle" and all the site had were pictures or people. I wasn't after people. I never bought again. Yes, you'd think they'd learn...........

  • ched999uk: Reman sounds like amazon search. I find it ok unitil you want to search by price then amazon falls apart.... You would think both companies would get it right...
    July 15, 2018, 16:54:55
  • Reman: It's strange. The original setup they had about 5 or 6 years back wasn't too bad (Except for them occasionally getting accounts hacked), But they changed it to the last one that was clunky and slow, Now they've replaced that with a flashier one that's also clunky and slow ?!?!?! Most companies learn from what they do wrong. I don't buy from HK half as much as I used to, Mainly because it takes forever to trawl through 100 pages of totally unrelated stuff while looking for something you were thinking about getting when you saw it there the previous week !!!

  • hoverfly: I don't think there is a search button on H/King. They updated the site and forgot to  relabel the search button with  Random bo##ocks..
    July 15, 2018, 09:47:35
  • Bad Raven: Agree - The Search is abysmal!!
    July 15, 2018, 08:40:52
  • Reman: I see HobbyKing's revamped their site again...... Shame they haven't made the search function work any better, Or worked out why the whole site goes slower than a pensioner in a Nissan Micra. :)

  • Reman: How thick is Google? You buy something online, Then for the next week you get targeted adds for the item you've just got?!?! That's the one item you're NOT going to be buying again at that point so it's wasted effort of there part. :)

A bit of help/comments on my build
« on: August 11, 2017, 12:05:08 »
Hello all....

I haven';t built a PC for about 12 years so I';m a little out of touch with the technology at the moment but with a bit of research I have put together a list of the core parts for what I hope to be a reasonable gaming PC for 1080p gaming
If anyone has any comments or improvements for similar prices I cc would be greatful!

I think going for the i3 processor is a mistake, although it has a high clock speed it has less cache than an i5 or i7 also I would go for 16Gb of ram, the other parts look OK but are you sure you will have enough disk space?
Have a look here:

If you wanna play the recent AA titles in 1080p mate I would look at a min quad core in this day and age, even my 6 core struggles on some games.

g card should be fine plenty of vram and lastest line etc

Ta for looking!

From my recent reading I was under the understanding that even most of the latest games were not too processor heavy and the GPU is far more important. A couple of the suggested budget builds from the gaming pc blogs suggest the latest Pentium processor and then putting more money into the GPU but I can';t bring myself to spec lower than an i3.

Valid point in the storage, I forgot to mention the SSD is mainly for the operating system and 1 or 2 games. have an existing drive for other storage

I haven't had a big look at what's available recently but its the same stuff more or less that's been around a while.  I have a GTX 1060 6GB bought last year and its great, it could be a little better but only because it could do 70fps in Arma III on Tanoa in Single player mode with No AI and with everything on max rather than my 55 FPS.  It makes no difference really other than seeing a slightly higher number in a benchmark.  Anything above about 40 FPS looks and feels smooth enough below 30FPS and games start to feel glitchy.

Multiplayer games tend to be much more of a strain on a CPU and usually this is where you will see the benefits of a higher clock speed on frame rates.

All games can only use one CPU core, it about not being able to predict the future properly. 

Clock speed is what you want, with a normal air cooled overclock 4.2 Ghz is about right.  With water cooling you might get 4.6 or even perhaps 5.2 Ghz....That would be a heavy overclock, probably not very stable. 

Video and audio editing can use all your cores.  Two cores is going to mean doing audio and video is going to take twice as long as four cores would take.
Anyway I would say get an i5, 4 cores, bigger cache, faster for high CPU load tasks, I would get a K version they are multiplier unlocked so you can over-clock them a bit.

256GB's versus 512GB's on your SSD.  I would get 512GB's.  I had a 256 GB one and it could hold World of Warcraft, DCS world and ARMA3 and about one other game just about....with 512GB's there is more room and not so much of a squeeze....

Your PSU is too way too weedy.  600-700 Watts is better, 800 Watts is ideal.

Your choice of case is very important too.  You want lots of room inside for your video card, some cards are often too long for cases that aren't big enough. Also the height of your CPU cooler can often conflict with the sides of a case if they aren't wide enough.  Really worth triple checking before you buy.

You can save £99 by reusing a Windows 7 CD key from a laptop or buy a windows 10 CD Key from a Steam CD key site.

Install windows 10 with the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool from Microsoft. Install Windows 10 without CD key once installed punch in your windows 7 key and boom activated.

Make sure it's Home premium, Pro or ultimate 32 or 64 bit key. you get the options before installing.
