What the hell is a carob bud
It's a chocolate alternative and normally found in health stores, but I just ate it when I was younger (along with regular chocolate), so it's a very nostalgic flavour for me.

it's a lot earthier and almost caramelly. Definitely an acquired taste.

Re: List of issues

So any update on what's happening with the forums?

Or is there a skin option and I just can't find it?

Re: New PC Build

Haha yeah, wife as saying we should just cut some holes in the perspex where they're making contact. Her dad is a kitchen maker, so she's ready to break out the tools. Another option I was thinking about was padding all the way around the side cover, just a few cm, so it would stop dust getting in a...

Re: New PC Build

PC has been running great, haven't had a single BSOD since that first time after Windows install. Put the 1080 Ti in last night and have been smashing games on Ultra. The fans are super quiet and it runs really cool, especially compared to my old Antec Nine Hundred case. Probably helps that it's the...

Re: New PC Build

The amount of pressure it took to push the CPU clamp down was slightly worrisome, but it's all working. http://i.imgur.com/Fw02qy7l.jpg I was stressing a bit about the thermal paste, always do, and I hadn't done one in a decade. I was freaking out a bit when one of the cooler screws wouldn't go in t...

Re: New PC Build

I can't remember the exact model, but the new case is a Thermeltake, and luckily the PSU is mounted at the bottom with a vent, so the fan is facing down. http://i.imgur.com/AGsS87k.png Definitely keeping the Noctua, can't believe how quiet it is. The 1080 Ti showed up at work today, so my weekend is...

Re: New PC Build

So the only issue I've run in to so far is that the U14S CPU fan is pretty big, and I have a microATX board. I either need to mount the fan horizontally or put my video card in the second PCIe slot, but that one is 4x, instead of 16x. I found some articles where they benchmarked 4x, 8x and 16x and t...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I just realised that outside of a few hours of DOOM and Metro 2033, all I've played for the last couple of months is 106 hours of PUBG.

Oh and Bejeweled.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Pre-ordered our SNES Mini, looking forward to it.

I tried a NES Mini and while it's cool, the games are a bit more simplistic and don't hold my attention for as long.

Plus Star Fox 2!

Everspace is so awesome, and it runs really well for how amazing it looks. Also, it finally happened! http://i.imgur.com/efA7xxQ.jpg I've been dead a few times and been part of squad wins, but this was my first win whilst still alive, and getting most of the kills.

Re: What are you watching?

I'm still watching The West Wing, it's a nice alternate reality to slip in to whilst we deal with the Trump era.

Sorkin is such a great writer.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I played a fair bit on the weekend.

During the day I was unstoppable, getting heaps of kills.

Then come the night games I was awful, dying within the first 2 minutes of 4 squad matches. Spent about 90 minutes watching my squad.

Up to 70 hours now.

Re: The NBN thread

I think part of it is awareness, as a lot of copper stuff will be shuttered in the coming years.

Similar to when the analogue TV signal was switched off.
