    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Should I just go Intel?

    Seems there's no plans for a Clevo chassis with Ryzen so I'm a bit stuck as to what to get now. Been without a nice gaming laptop since returning my last 2070 TongFang Recoil. The only option for me here is Intel, which wouldn't be my first choice. It would be mostly for gaming, but also light...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil RTX 2070 Power Lead

    Have a strange issue with the mains power lead on this laptop. Whenever I unplug it, it freezes and requires a hard reboot via the power button. It'll run fine both on the mains and on the battery and plugging it in doesn't cause any issues. Any other Recoil users on here that can maybe test...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Proteus Thermals

    Looking at some new RTX laptops and the Proteus is very competitively priced. Not sure what Clevo chassis it is though so can't find out much about it. I do know however that the last one with the 10xx cards had some issues with thermal throttling/overheating etc. Is the refreshed one now fixed?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 2070 Laptops

    Just checking out the specs of the Octane VI and the Recoil II. With a very similar spec, the price difference is around £400. Is the Octane really worth that much more? Only difference I can see is G-Sync I think. (i7 8750h 2.2/4.1ghz = i7 8700k 3.7) Both RTX 2070, 16gb of RAM and same...

    First time using a card from killer. Connection and stuff is good when the suite has the "Enable Bandwidth Control" option disabled. However, whenever I restart my PC, or wake it up from sleep it's automatically enabled again. Any way of keeping it turned off? Thanks.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Backing up Data

    What's the best and fastest way of backing up your data? Right now I just copy what I want onto an external HDD. Is there a fast way of backing up everything onto a disk? I'll still want to retrieve individual files and folders at a later date though, rather than restoring the full disk. Thanks.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Is the I7 6700HQ Worth it?

    Just wondering what sorta difference there is between this and the i5 quad for the Optimus VII. Would I notice much of a difference for gaming? The price difference is £67, so wondering if it'd be worth it.

    Not that we were in any doubt that it's being developed, but this is I believe the first time we've had official confirmation. They've trademarked the Half-Life 3 name in Europe. Make of it what you will.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Optimus II Random Shutdowns

    Had the laptop for about a month now, had a few shutdowns in that time. I don't know what's causing it, don't really want to RMA or anything due to the rarity. No BSOD or freezeup, just a shutdown out of the blue. It's not a temperature problem, the laptop will turn back on instantly (And the...
