  1. New PC Build - Advice Required!

    For me, i'd downsize for sure (i've gone from a Laptop to a mini-ITX rig and the power is phenominal, it's replaced my ATX desktop) https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-H97I-PLUS-H97I-Plus-Socket-Motherboard/dp/B00K2R6BZE/ref=sr_1_3?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1466626980&sr=1-3&keywords=asus+mini+itx+1150 Only difference between H97 and z97 is the z97 chipset allows you to overclock the CPU - so if thats an issue let me know. Your i7 Haswell will chomp through most things though, i'd imagine. (Personally don't rate MSI boards, i try and stick with Asus, and never had a problem with them.) (had bad experiences with MSI, DFI and Gigabyte) DDR3 is a bit bleh size wise annoyingly... Do you need 32? are you just overspeccing just because? 16 if you are: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMY16GX3M2A2400C11R-Vengeance-2400Mhz-Performance/dp/B00EUPV2RQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1466627234&sr=1-1&keywords=16gb+DDR3+Corsair 32 could be an issue with just 2 DIMM slots (board wont take it) - DDR4 would though but that'd be change the CPU too. Dinky board lines you up for a dinky case. Here's some good examples: https://www.amazon.co.uk/BitFenix-BFC-PRO-300-KKXSK-RP-Prodigy-Mini-ITX-Midnight/dp/B008BZVTX8/ref=sr_1_8?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1466627273&sr=1-8&keywords=mini+itx (only problem is this is MRated's :)) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CC-9011061-WW-Graphite-Windowed-Portable/dp/B00LA6X38O/ref=sr_1_32?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1466627308&sr=1-32&keywords=mini+itx (mine) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CC-9011070-WW-MicroATX-Mini-ITX-Case-Black/dp/B00LA6WXEO/ref=sr_1_31?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1466627308&sr=1-31&keywords=mini+itx Carbides always seem to do well. If your PSU is modular, that'll definitely help as the dinky sizes make things a squeeze. GPU I wouldn't bother with the founders edition. Crappy stock cooler.. i think not. You didnt mention your pricing limit... So if you're trying to squeeze the pennies, but still get the latest and greatest: https://www.amazon.co.uk/EVGA-08G-P4-6173-KR-GeForce-Superclock-Graphics/dp/B01GVHNWUK/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1466627487&sr=1-1&keywords=evga+1070 If you're not: https://www.amazon.co.uk/EVGA-GeForce-Cooling-Express-Graphics/dp/B01GBX86U0/ref=sr_1_3?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1466627487&sr=1-3&keywords=evga+1070 (I'm waiting for someone to "shut up and take my money" on the latter.) Remember if you downsize, it's worth paying a bit extra to get the better kit and making it last, rather than being tight and replacing kit more regularly (my 2p) :) Just a bit of food for thought mate
  2. epic.HUB Feedback

    A small feature suggestion. Mobile push notifications. An example would be Pushalot - Windows platforms (Windows & Windows Phone) - bolded the bit i'm interested in https://pushalot.com/api#webapi You could have the notifications show through the Win 10 notification centre on your PC - or as a toast notification on a Windows Phone (I know this is a small market!) However there are alternatives to Pushalot - it's just the one i'm most used to using Android/iOS could be something like this: https://www.pushbullet.com/ (I was being social, and not at my desk so almost missed a notification! )
  3. epic.HUB Feedback

    A small point... In settings - can you add a volume control? I turned my volume right up as I was struggling to hear something yesterday - just put my headset on in game - sneaking and DING! new underpants please. Other than the above - this is a great way to communicate I think. What about having it integrated into the Big Screen too? So even if it's just the last (1 or 2) items on there - everyone can see what's happening?
  4. open ttd fun tournament?

    Assuming that reminder will come out via the hub too? Also what version you rocking? 1.6.0 ?
  5. Epic fail at rainbow six seige

    Neon can't talk when it comes to "wrong button whoopsies" How very PayDay.... Almost out on a complete stealthed mission, about to leave the map... GRENAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADE!
  6. epic18 - Bar & Catering Details and Feedback

    Their lack of a decent ePOS system would pretty much shoot this down straight away I'd imagine. You'd be asking their staff to do maths on the fly constantly (high risk of mistakes) perhaps something else epic could help the venue with? (It's pretty painful having to watch staff refer to price lists, and it's horribly inefficient...) Also i'm not sure how you'd stay ontop of shrinkages with a manually entered POS - because now you have no "good" audit to compare your stock against (a decent ePOS you'd get all sorts of pretty data coming out of it to say what's popular and when - could do some funky trend analysis of this across several events so the kitchen knows when peaks and troughs of demand are and can ramp up and down in expectation. (Comparing them against the epic Timetable would give you a "When X then Y" happens - you could also do the same for the bar, aka Pub Quiz is ending? Everyone man the bar! The other issue with this is it'd be harder for them to stay ontop of the demand to keep things running smoothly. Now they expect *most* people will have a few bits of each item. With that structure you can guarantee you'll get some Captain Awkwards™ who only eat Sausage (fnarr fnarr) so rock up and ask for a bun and the entire tray - meaning everyone else now has to wait. Although - with that "cost per item" you'd get rid of that weirdness, where a single cheese slice is 50p, but a slice of bacon for your burger is 30p (Errr....?? ) Thoughts welcome
  7. epic18 - Bar & Catering Details and Feedback

    Breakfast was on point this morning (Think KCC have about got that down...) - lunch (Cheeseburger & Onion Rings) - had to wait on the OR's but they were bob on when done (and i'd rather wait and have fresh) - Burgers had just been put out and seemed to be coming out "little and often" - Makes sense to me, minimises shrinkage for the venue, maximises product quality - I'd happily wait for the meal if it comes as good as that one. Overall I think this is KCC's best food they've put on (so far! it's still very early days obvs...)
  8. epic.HUB Feedback

    Just a quickie from me: When things get posted containing links - it doesn't treat them as links. Not sure how easy that is to fix as i'm guessing it's pulling data from a few different places. But for example a tweet just went out with: But without https://t.co/Lrvfgc75Ik being clickable - you aren't really getting the full effect. (I'm far too lazy to login to twitter...)
  9. BSOD help!!

    Interesting. ntoskrnl.exe is basically Windows saying "i have NFI what foobar'd me, but something did.." - Anything that hooks into the kernel can cause this... (pretty much) However if i t's sorted itself - that's good news. Let us know if it isn't because it'd be worth taking a poke about - just give me a shout When you shutdown do you get a "Waiting for processes..." window but no actual applcations listed? as it'd be worth checking Task Scheduler to see if theres something windows related that's running and it's just not ending gracefully and it's taking 'doze with it.
  10. epic.Lite 17 - Games & Activities

    Not the worst news in the world. I'm looking forward to actually being a bit limited in what we can do... Means we can crack out some proper LAN games. Should be a good amount of us for things like Chivalry too, to make it personal (A shot per death? Last man standing? ... literally :D) Ark (LAN server possible?) would be a good bit of fun too. I'd love some OpenTTD too, it's always put down far too quickly in my opinion... I'd like to get that started early and keep it running..! Trackmania, Blur, C&C is a great call (I'm up for) or some other RTS games. Total war series would also be good (but I've not bothered with the latest after the toss that was Rome 2) FIFA Tourny? Mario Kart? DemiGod? Supraball, Rocket League, Anything we can LAN (and/or Share?!) sounds good to me.
  11. Vandalism and Damage

    Indeed Riot, unfortunately from a security type stand point epic leaves their back doors a bit vulnerable from the sports hall side of things? (Giggidy) Either way I'm hopeful someone comes forward, or someone on their behalf....
  12. Vandalism and Damage

    Due to what it is it'd depend on the license we tick at lan I'd think...?? Personally I wouldn't mind if epic used emails like that but if there was any comeback.... Perhaps better to do it with the survey link...??
  13. Vandalism and Damage

    Has there been any update on this Jon?? Kalleth whilst this is possible it is also still unlikely... Especially with the vandalism which was caused (from my understanding) - someone thought they'd do something "funny" which it seems they're the only ones who got the joke...
  14. A Big Thanks :)

    Hi folks Just wanted to say a big thanks to all the staff / volunteers at the event. Everyone is aware of the issues and it was clear to see that many of you were absolutely knackered from trying to resolve them The guys in Lakeside whilst very green (Pun intended!) were excellent and a good giggle. Good staff at LAN are hard to come by - I hope they enjoyed it so they want to continue to support the event by staffing. Events like this are what you make of them, and a lot of it is down to the company that people keep. Having a group of approachable & chatty staff downstairs made a big difference imho Obviously this is intended for everyone and not just those in lakeside - it's easy to forget everyone else who plays their part, especially if you don't see them...!
  15. epic.FOURTEEN - Bar & Catering Feedback

    I'm sure if you ask the management Elsie someone can sort a teabag or two out for you. (fnarr fnarr) Breakfast this morning was bob on, again. I wish I'd paid up front though! of the meals I've had the breakfast has definitely been the best from KCC catering.
