reviews are out and as expected it edges out titan x while costing much less at $699us rrp same as the 1080 founders edition, $100 more than the gtx 1080 non reference at launch and $200 more than it is now


au prices are a bit of a rip off at $1200

Win 10 wont shutdown or sleep

18 February 2017 - 07:22 AM

OK so the pc waking itself back up is one thing but when it just returns to the sign in screen and turns off the monitor when told to sleep or shutdown that's a new one for me


After some googling i found a workaround to get shutdown working by disabling faster startup in power options but i still want standby back


The only other thing i found that may help is updating drives and unplugging peripherals so i have done that but still no luck


Also tried install avast\mbam but they didn't find anything


Anyone else come across this or have any ideas? other than reinstalling windows 10 again

i know arma will still run like crap but it will be interesting if it can keep the fps closer to 60 more of the time rather than ~30 most the time in apex



all parts were posted 19th except the mb..

ebay store said it had 10 in stock at time of purchase now lists 8 but i received this email few days back

Identify that component - looks like a anorexic capacitor

This component on the torch is faulty and wiggling it makes the torch work fine for a bit

The solder looks fine it seems to be lose in the component which pushes up against the rear plate my guess is that being dropped and bouncing around on the motorbike has taken its toll

Any idea on what i should be replacing it with?
