What are the actual specifications of your actual laptop? It's easy to copy the spec sheet from Lenovo's site...

Pics of the laptop?

I wanted to post in Gadman's thread to finally close out a deal we agreed to. I contacted Gadman a while ago about finding an FNX .45 Tactical and he very quickly got back to me. His communication was always polite and in a timely manner. The product was quickly shipped and fairly priced. It arrived at my local FFL in great shape and I now have possession of a beautiful new firearm! I look forward to dealing with Gadman again in the future when I am looking to make another firearm purchase with Bitcoin!

Here are a few pictures of the firearm: http://imgur.com/msshz8p and http://imgur.com/fYavWce.

The laptop looks great, but I'm sorry to burst your bubble about the price. That's not even close to a 1300 Euro laptop. I bought a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro last year (around this time) with an i7 4500u, 8GB DDR3, 3200x1800 touchscreen, backlit keyboard, and an upgraded 512Gb SSD for $600. These specs are not only old (two generations behind in CPU tech), but you can find similarly spec'ed out laptops for far less.

I got my items today in fantastic shape. The packaging was excellent and thoroughly wrapped up. The prices were great and everything was as described. I sent half up front and half upon receipt, but I wouldn't hesitate to deal with mickeld again in the future.

Half payment has been sent by me for a few items. I'll post back with updates, but after speaking with mickeld, I think I will be very happy.

Oh my. My childhood self wanted the LCD and battery packs for the gamecube so badly. Good luck selling, hopefully someone as reminiscent as myself will be in the market for these good old throwbacks.

Just FYI, 1155 and 1156 are not compatible in any way. In fact they are really a full generation apart. 1156 was mainly known for Lynnfield chips while 1366 had the big boy i7 chips like Bloomfield and Gulftown. 1155 was the socket which supported Sandy Bridge.

Think you could get your hands on an FN FNX 45 Tactical in FDE color? I'm currently out of my state so I can't have you ship to a local FFL, but I'd be very interested once back in Illinois later this year.

Geeze, is everyone mining ETH with their 290x cards or something? Those almost 300W cards can't be good in terms of energy efficiency... Just sell one to me instead!  Grin

gtx 980/ti/970 pricew are falling, due gtx 1080 cards and his "potential" performance and new price.
Nvidia killing their own cards since ....

This happens every time a company releases a new iteration of a product. It's not intentional, it's just the progression of technology. Nvidia, AMD, Intel, Corsair, Samsung, literally every technology company does this, and it's really not driven by the company but rather by the consumers.

Bump! Still looking!

Can you be more specific with the model? Is it the G1 gaming version or the windforce version, or another option?
13  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: User "LSD25" is a scammer on: May 18, 2016, 09:53:28 PM
No screenshots or other proofs? Particularly for this bit:
After a little looking around, he is also a member on reddit by the name of "dogeitrade". His profile can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/user/dogeitrade

Not that I have that much doubt about a newbie scamming with a steam account of course.

All of the sales threads he has posted on this website have duplicates under the name "dogeitrade" on various boards from Reddit.

For example, here is a $202 newegg giftcard he put up for sale on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/giftcardexchange/comments/4gjj7s/h_202_newegg_giftcard_w_btc_or_wmz_or_pm/
A quick search on this forum finds us this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1452765.0

He also had duplicates of his Fallout 4 for-sale post

https://www.reddit.com/r/GameTrade/comments/4hq2xz/h_fallout_4_steam_w_35_paypal_bitcoin/
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1459653.msg14743586#msg14743586

His Steam account still advertises a few games like Fallout 4, Witcher 3, and No Man's Sky which are the same games "dogeitrade" is selling.
14  Economy / Scam Accusations / User "LSD25" is a scammer on: May 18, 2016, 09:35:52 PM
I purchased a game from him for 0.06 BTC a week or so ago and got a message today from Steam saying the item was revoked from my account due to fraudulent payment on his behalf.

His profile is here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=833027

After a little looking around, he is also a member on reddit by the name of "dogeitrade". His profile can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/user/dogeitrade

He's active on the "r/fraudnet" subreddit and openly talks about scamming other users with Paypal accounts, etc.

His Steam account name is "Jmorgan2016" and should definitely be avoided.

I would also avoid his website: http://dogeitrade.com

I messaged him earlier today, and actually talked to him through Steam (where I'm assuming he is continuing to scam people). He told me that he was "only reselling the code he bought from someone else" and when I asked him to either purchase a new copy of the game, or refund my 0.06 BTC, his reply was "can't help you with that".
15  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] R9 290X - MSI, Gigabyte, Asus on: May 18, 2016, 08:21:55 AM
As the title states, I'm looking to grab another 290X. I'm pretty much only looking for MSI, Gigabyte or Asus cards, but will entertain offers for other brands. I just bought a new free sync 1440p monitor and would like to add a second 290X to get a bit of extra performance until the next GPUs from AMD and Nvidia are available.

Escrow will likely be used (unless you send first), and I will cover the fees.

Comment or PM with offers. I'll be really interested if the price is right.

Unfortunately I do not. But I bought a preordered a 6P, and let me tell you... You will love either of the two phones. They are top notch.  Smiley

Look Joe. I'm not in here trying to shit post and just screw with you. I honestly believe that you're wasting money by paying for that service. That said, you're free to offer it to whomever will pay you for it. You are 100% correct when you say that EVGA (and most other manufucturers) do not cover overclocking. But since I've already shown there is no way for them to track your card usage, it's not a question of whether they will RMA it for you, it's a moral question of whether you should RMA the card that you just killed while violating the warranty.

Also, I've noticed how your arguments against mine are basically anecdotes about things you think are happening inside your computer. While that's awesome, I really suggest you do some research about the GPU boot process. Everyone's fan turns on to max when they turn their computer on because before the GPU bios load, there is no known fan profile (hasn't been loaded yet). In order to protect the card, it defaults to full steam ahead. Also, if you think a graphics card company would spend millions (or billions) of dollars in research, design, and implementation to add hardware to their products so they could catch the 1-in-10,000 user who kills their card with overclocking, then you need to seriously re-read that last sentence.

Anyway, I'm not going to post in here any more as I've said my peace. Best of luck selling your overclocking warranty service.
18  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: Gauging Interest. on: May 07, 2016, 12:47:02 AM
You misunderstood me as it seems I did not say that they will know what you did everyday but if the last couple of changes on the card where from you overvolting/ overclocking then yes they can refuse it.

**snip**

Sorry to burst your bubble here, but unless you flash the BIOS to do your overclocking (which is a pretty obtuse way of doing it considering how many free overclocking/overvolting software tools are available), then they have no way to see what you've been doing. There are very few non-volatile memory chips on a graphics card, and they are all used for boot-up and initialization processes.

This is even more true when you consider what it is we're talking about happening. You're trying to say that in the micro-seconds prior to your card dying (in some way, be it gpu-die, memory-die, or power-supplying hardware related), the device just saves the previous settings and then kicks the bucket? I'm sorry, but paying for an "overclocking" warranty sounds to me like being taken for a ride. It might be quicker for you to walk in and swap the card out, but the speed of hardware replacement is all you're paying for.
Wow ok so when you let's say Radeon settings and you overclock it to whatever let's say 1200/1600.

You have it set right so when you turn it off and turn it back on the settings are still the same correct it does not reset it on you so sorry to burst your bubble it is setup to save your previous settings.

I hate when people write things and yet do not know what they are talking about.

The clocks are the same when you boot back up because the overclocking tool sets them to your defined setting after you log in. If you set clocks using software and then pull the card out and put it in a different computer, the clocks are back to the stock clocks described in the card's BIOS. I'm getting my masters in computer engineering, so I actually do know what I'm talking about. Spend more than 3 minutes researching this topic and maybe, just maybe, you'll have the "Aha!" moment and realize you have no clue what you're talking about.

I'm sorry. What are you offering? Those come with 3 years warranty.
Correct they come with the 3 year manufacturing warranty the computer store I go to offers a in house 3 year warranty that covers overclocking so you can run them max and if anything happens to it you walk into the store with the receipt and get a replacement.

Manufacturers warranty does not cover this.

I hope this clarified.

I now understand what you mean. Uhh. I don't know what company you've dealt with but i have had 0 problem in RMA'ing dead gpus that were pushed past the limit OC'ing. I dont think there is a way to tell anyways, its not like there is a seal on the bios with hard locked settings. They even have OC profiles on the different bioses and OC software.

Anyways, this is my opinion, i don't think you will hit here with this.

Regardless of what I think. If you want to offer this as a service, you'll have to post in the service section.
This is wrong most places don't always give you a hard time but if you keep sending multiple back you can see it due to the settings of what you have done with it is in the memory just like a hard drive.

You have a fundamental misunderstanding of computer storage mediums if you think that's true. DRAM is volatile (hence the "dynamic" in the name). Hard drives use spinning magnetic disks to semi-permanently hold data. Additionally, the medium typically used for device BIOS is typically of a Read-only type, or an EEProm variant which still has a relatively complicated write process and a maximum number of writes. So suffice to say there is practically no way for a device manufacturer to track your usage.
