    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Did you know......

    .......that today is Friday? That means it's weekly PC cleaning day! :) I apparently have been asleep for about 4 months straight and missed all the interim Fridays: I kinda forgot I had LED fans on the front too. Finding them is almost like Christmas all over again! Not that I got anything...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What Type of Photographs Do You Take?

    Just thought it would be interesting to demonstrate what stacking does for anyone who hasn't played with it. Conceptually it is basically reinforcing the consistent and therefore desired information within a set of images while allowing the removal of anything that isn't consistent from one shot...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What Type of Photographs Do You Take?

    Forgot to say - I am so happy with my PC setup which munches it's way through crazy stacks such as these with total ease. I knew all that RAM would pay for itself in averted heartache!!!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What Type of Photographs Do You Take?

    Just thought I throw some slightly alternative stuff up here for the fun! I'm a bit of a Space Nerd and bought myself a 6 inch Dobsonian reflector last autumn. It's been a total pleasure - and welcome distraction - spending some of the winter evenings catching views of some incredible sights...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Very Unsatisfactory End to an Exciting F1 Season

    I actually think 2022 will be a very interesting season and I don't expect Lewis to find it as easy for a long list of reason, not the least of which will be his attitude to dealing with Max! Bring it on!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Very Unsatisfactory End to an Exciting F1 Season

    If you think of the circumstances of Prost v Senna, Senna v Prost, or Schumacher v Hill in title deciders, last season was at least different in that the final race was driven utterly cleanly by Max - and his performance throughout much of the season (sadly I wouldn't say all of it) was...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST How to take Apart Palit RTX 2060 Super to clean and reapply thermal paste (details below)

    On some GPU's it's a piece of cake and not a difficult job at all, on others it can be a total nightmare. There are heaps of videos online about how to repaste the 2060 Super, but you're unlikely to find one for the Palit brand sepcifically I would have thought. It will either be thermal paste...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST FrostFlow 150

    Many of PCS branded coolers seem to ID Cooling originals. My Frostflow 100 V3 is an SE-224-XT for example. Overwhelmingly positive reviews discovered during my own research on ID Coolings stuff generally speaking.... However, with the majority of reviews the performance is tested as a...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Need help building a PC

    Exactly right. 16GB will not hold you back with Photoshop ultimately. With Lightroom, it can ruin your day if you don’t have enough for some of its heavy functions, but PS is OK. Get the basics right and extras like RAM will be easy additions later. The mistakes I’ve made with my build are all...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Need help building a PC

    Oh no! I think something might have been lost in translation! What I meant was that I edited my post after you might have read it first time around and before you first quoted it (you had 'liked' it before I edited it) - as I wanted to echo what you said originally - yes a deidcated GPU would...

    Agreed AgentC. I edited my original post to add that your suggestion is a good one. (y)

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Need help building a PC

    Howdy all and Happy New Year! The suggested builds above are almost exactly the same as my build except for a couple of differences. Personally I believe Photoshop will benefit from a dedicated GPU over an iGPU, but that would depend on the use case of course. However @AgentCooper suggestion of...

    My X was definitely wrong! I never liked her that much truth be told.....

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Small problem with PC

    A strange question given that it sounds like you are still in your own bed. :rolleyes:

    Mercedes to let their appeal go.... The right call ultimately I think for the sake of the sport and their own team - time to move on.
