New architecture or not..
Posted by Roguey on 1 Jul, 2016 7 comments
During the past couple of months ive been following both nvidia and AMD new GPU architecture (Pascal/Polaris). Ive been running a 4k setup since Christmas and my single 980ti was struggling (often seeing 30-40fps). So I wanted to improve on that.
The first of the two - Pascal came out just over a month ago. I was excited at first - as I thought the new architecture should be a huge leap forward. We been stuck on a 28nm manufacturing process for long time - which has made some gpu's get pretty big (and costly to make). So with nvidia ... » Read more
I can Bailey believe it - update on Overclockers
Posted by Roguey on 22 Apr, 2016 0 comments
During the past week or two, you may I read about the troubles I had with my Zotac 980Ti AMP, if not seen it, look here – no need to repost. At the end of the situation I felt I had to take matters into my own hands, which I knew might void the warranty - something I didn’t want to do (but felt I had little choice). So I left a pretty bad review for Overclockers.co.uk, thinking that was that.
After doing so, James Bailey (the Returns Manager) contacted me and wanted to sort the problem out – he ... » Read more
Stay away from Zotac cards
Posted by Roguey on 9 Apr, 2016 2 comments
Awhile back, you may have seen that I brought a new Zotac 980 Ti Amp. Before purchasing the card I did a lot of research to work out which one I should buy. In the end it came down to price and 5 year warranty. I wish I would of picked another brand now.
Before Christmas, I had the card running at 1080p. 1080p doesnt put much stress on the card, as 60fps isnt hard for a card of this power. For a Christmas present I got a 4k screen, which meant increasing the resolution to 4k. This is when I noticed some big ... » Read more

I know its been awhile since my last Elite: Dangerous blog; back in September when I reached the combat rank of Elite. However its been relativity quiet in Elite for me. The reason is that ive been working on my trade-rank, which has you can imagine is a grind. For this ive been using one of two trade routes, either; Bestii to LTT 8517 or Karid to Orang - both routes have their ... » Read more
Reinforcements have arrived
Posted by Roguey on 27 Oct, 2015 0 comments
Awhile back you may of read that I upgraded my PC from an 2600k to an 5820k. I looked seriously at the 6700k, but for me having 2 real extra cores was better (4x 4.2 vs 6x 3.6ghz). I dont know how things will go with gaming etc. but from past experience the extra cores tend to get used later on (and I do some encoding work from time to time). I also thought my 5820k will overclock (if need be), and ive reached 3.8ghz with 1.0v - I know thats not much of an overclock but I tend to want to keep the noise level low (1.0v is stock voltage). Higher ... » Read more
Upgrading to an 5820k
Posted by Roguey on 30 Sep, 2015 0 comments
A little bit ago, a family member made a decision that they wanted to use a PC for next gen games instead of going down the console path (I think it was the right decision). This was influenced because their copy of Windows 7 couldnt be upgraded on their current pc (AMD X2 3800+), as the cpu didnt support CMPXCHG16B. So I did some research and found out that the cheapest I could put something together was around £400 mark (motherboard, cpu and ram). When comparing the stats to my 2600k (which is 4 years old), I saw only a 7% difference in ... » Read more
Elite Dangerous » An Elite Roguey
Posted by Roguey on 1 Sep, 2015 0 comments
Its been nearly 2 months since my promotion to Deadly in Elite: Dangerous. When I got Deadly, I moved my focus onto trading - as it felt like it would be a long journey and I was only at the start of it. Every so often I did a bit combat - pushing up my progress by a couple of percentage every now and then.
However in the past week or so, my turned my focus back onto fighting. I knew there be a bank holiday, so I would have some more time to push on with the rank.
Progress was slow at first, getting around 5% progress a day until I ... » Read more
