    Chopping my sim card to make a nano, it it too old?

    I just thought I'd round this off and say that I did cut my old, old sim card down myself and I had no problems at all. Just used the measurements on the internet and my wife's nano sim as a guide and chopped and filed away, no sweat. Tom.

    In this day and age can they transfer a bog standard, pay as you go type number/account to a new sim? Back in the day they couldn't, but now? Tom.
  3. Just wanted to check, with anyone in the know, whether I am safe to go ahead and chop my sim card and make it into a nano sim? My concern is, that since it is more than ten years old then the chip and/or internal connecting wires might be more exposed towards the edges. My sim, below. Tom.

    Instant email notifications showing up late.

    Ok, this problem is back and probably the only reason I know it still is a problem is because I'm currently discussing an active topic that I created. In any case, whether it was resolved or not, I am not getting instant notification to my email at all so far. For instance, if I use THIS thread as an example, which I recently created, I have it set to instant notification of replies and I've also checked that my email is up to date. I have, however, received no reply notifications to my email at all. Any fix? Tom.

    Gents, Maybe a re-installation is the way to go, somewhat annoying, but hey. I'll look into the other options as well. Cheers.

    The Computer Question Thread

    I've searched and searched and I've found nothing concrete, why does PUBG keep randomly crashing to desktop, multiple times during a game? Everything is up to date, I've tried messing with the graphics but to no avail. From what I've heard it is happening across all computer specs but I've not found a rock solid fix. Anyone have the answer? Tom.

    My Asus ROG Strix B350-F Gaming has one area of fixed LED's, on the chipset, and one extension header. Both are controlled by the same software but only operate as one. You can not have one type of light show on the chipset and another on the header extension, however, read on. See below for the Asus Aura control panel. You can certainly turn them all off, top right of control panel, but there is no option for dimming, unless you get an an add-on LED controller like those all over Ebay and Aliexpress and power it off the 12V header/PSU/USB. This add-on controller would also allow you to independently, of the mobo, to control the secondary set of LEDs in any way it allowed. Tom.

    The Computer Question Thread

    Everything is fine, however, I've run into a couple of hiccups. First, is as described below, and the second is Battlefield 1 related and I'll get into that later. Ok, after the install I sorted the partitions to be as follows: Operating System © ggrrrr, Games (D) and Everything Else (G) - C and D on my SSD and G on my HDD. However, after the install, a disk 'F' appeared on my SSD and has the same or similar folders as my 'C' drive, and I don't know why. From some searching this would appear to be normal and unavoidable, however, other people's 'F' disk only seems to take up a few hundred Mb's while mine has a capacity of nearly 20Gb. Why is this file here, why are certain programs e.g. Movavi Video Suite defaulting to it for photo/video saves and can I get rid of it and return the 20Gb back to C or D disk? Thanks, Tom.

    You are correct. Tom.

    Just to cap this off, I have bought all the components, some have arrived and still waiting on others. Oh, and wouldn't you know it but Sod's law reared it's head and my Enermax PSU died so I've had to buy a new one, see below. The list is as follows: CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 GPU: XFX RX 580 Black Edition 8Gb Mobo: Asus Rog Strix B350-F Gaming RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 5, 8Gb x 2(16Gb), 15-15-15-35 (F4-2400C15D-16GVR) PSU: Corsair HX750 SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250Gb OS: Windows 10 Home (Retail) Monitor: ViewSonic XG2401 (144Hz, 1ms, TN) Budget definately blown! Tom.

    Lone, There are significant cost implications if I were to go that route. 8Gb Ram + RX580 = €345.40 16Gb Ram + RX480 = €461.00 approx The price difference comes from the 480 being 8Gb and the 580 being 4Gb and, of course, double the Ram. Are you saying I should be investing in a 144Hz monitor? Tom.

    I already have an Enermax 600W and the calculators say I am well within the limits. Tom.

    Ok, I think I'm going to go with the following: CPU: Intel i5 7600K GPU: Sapphire RX 580 MB: Gigabyte GA-Z270-Gaming K3 RAM: Corsair CMK8GX4M2B3000C15 SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250Gb OS: Windows 10 Home (Non OEM) Monitor: Samsung S24F350FHU (Freesync, yes, but only 60Hz - compromises) Any final thoughts, the monitor spec for instance? Tom.

    Ok, thanks. Just watched a video review for W10, I don't dislike it. Just to stay on the W10 theme for a moment, has Microsoft changed it's attitude to the chopping and changing of hardware when using OEM W10? I've just read on Tom's Hardware that you can now use the same OEM W10 from one machine to another. Can anyone confirm that? Tom.

    Amateur, Farts! Thanks for the warning, I might have to go W10. HitmanNo2, How would that manifest itself. Would that be in navigation, file sorting or what? I know very little about W10, off to have a look at it. If it is just a polished version of 8 then more farts. Tom.
