    I'm BAAAAaaack!

    Howdy! I've not been around for a while, life got in the way. Been around since '04 '05 on atomic, (no idea what my old name was, sorry) but taken a many year break, short of a couple posts a couple years ago. Did a couple of builds recently for friends, realised how far out of touch I've gotten with tech stuff. Like, badly out of touch. My soon to be updated sig will tell you how far gone I am Decided to come back to atomic and learn some shit. Hope you'll have me.

    anyone got a undelete tool to recommend?

    So i lent my laptop to my brother and it came back with a bunch of files missing. I checked out a couple of recovery tools a while back for something similar but not as important, and they failed miserably. can anyone recommend something that will do the job i require of it with no hassles? either freeware or something i just have to pay a couple bucks for, im not too fussed, with that said im not made of money either. last time i tried, i remember using recuva, which seems to be the tool of choice for a lot of people and it didnt work at all, so not that one

    New Gaming System

    So people know, I've been hanging around, just not logged in. I have some good news! THIS THING IS EPIC!!! I havent had a single problem with it, goes great guns. I upgraded my TV to 1080 when I moved again (long story) and if anything it performs better at 1080 than 720. I say not a single problem... One minor niggle, I suppose. The ASUS GPU Tweak software doesn't load when Windows does, which leads to higher gfx temps due to its stupid silent running shit... Bit scary the few times I've forgotten to kick it on before I start GTAV. Anyway Chuurs
  12. Hey guys. It's been a long time since I did a proper, researched, build. Did a few "keep it under $5-6-700" Builds last year, and was pretty impressed with the performance of those. I dont have a solid budget but If I spend too much I'll be murdered in my sleep, probably with the case, by a severely annoyed fiance. This time around, I'm doing one for myself, and while I kinda know what I want, ( a solid "daily" with the guts to play GTA 5 with decent settings) I need a little help fleshing out the details. If you can help out, It'd be much appreciated All I really know is I want to build an i5 rig, I'm leaning towards the 6600k. I was leaning towards the AsRock Fatality H170 Board, but upon reading reviews I found a couple stating O/c was impossible on the board, so now I'm back to having no idea what to look at. Ram? 16 GB. Is Kingston still a player or are g.skill a bit more respected nowadays? I'll be dropping a 240Gb SSD into it, intel or samsung seem to get the most votes, paired with a 2gb seagate. GFX seems to be the big one, with my desired game being GTAV, and I want to try out the just cause series. Should I be looking at a GTX750ti or a GTX 950? Theres no way I could justify a 980ti/1080, its just not on the cards :) As far as Power goes, I've got a shaw 1kw thats been pretty solid for years, theyre a good brand, if mistrusted due to their place on the pricing totem pole. I'll either salvage that or get a new 975 max. A monitor is unnecessary, i HDMI to a tv I'd prefer to go buy everything at MSY, but if theres stuff they dont have I'll go online again, any help you can give me would be very appreciated

    The Mrs Needs a New Phone

    The Mrs need a new phone but she smashes 'em faster than Hulk smashes Loki Anyone have a recommendation for an android based phone that is basically unbreakable? The last one I got her is a DOOGEE X5, same as mine, which I've had for about a month longer, and mine is still pristine. Still has the factory cover on it. Hers is a smashed crab, even though the phone is made with Gorilla Glass. I honestly dont get how she does it, I had an LG L5 for years before this, also gorilla glass, never broke it, but she managed to set it on fire plugging it in. THATS the kinda tomfoolery I'm dealing with. So, fireproof, waterproof, smashproof, hulk proof, droids, in 3, 2, Cheers

    new pc build looking at cooling

    I've just done a build with an i5 6600K, I'm just using a coolermaster Hyper D92 (no water) $53 and I can't hear it unless I stick my head in the case. Seems to work great. Dunno, something to think about

    WMA on Android

    DO NOT USE BETA VLC. I used a beta version a couple years ago it torched my phone lol. Now using the std VLC for droid and it works wonders. About your problem though - wouldnt it just be easier to reencode your files? Something like Audacity, but with batch runs.

    Ok. You're weird. Thanks!

    This Census

    Unfortunately, you aren't asking ME, you're asking the phenomenal 187... With that said, if you WERE asking me, I could lie. Either way. Either say I don't when I do or say I do when I don't. Which is about the level of honesty our government shows us, the public...

    This Census

    $500 Great scam if you ask me. I wonder how many people will apply government-level transparency to their answers because of the anonymity issue? goverment level transparency? See: Clear as mud

    New Gaming System

    Okay, so since this happened, not much has happened. Picked up a 2tb sata, 2 days later my car went bang. So all the computer $ went there instead. Headed into MSY tomorrow to see what I can see, budget is roughly $1-1200. Still going the z170 route, Any board suggestions keeping it under say $220? i6600k with 16gb seems good, 8 I don't feel would be enough for what I make my computers do sometimes but 32 is just overkill the asus strix 4g960 has come down a bit more. I'm not a numbers guy, I could be wasting a few $ on the card, if theres an Nvidia thats better for my purposes please let me know, Keeping in mind I'll only be HDMI'ing to a 720P tv The real thing I cant make my mind up on is the PSU. I kinda want to get everything tomorrow and build it but if they dont have anything worthy I'll go elsewhere, I'm not CC lol :) If you had to buy from MSY, which PSU would you choose? or recommend something else. Whatever. Chuurs
