Back in 2016, I bought an E5-2670 for Php3662. A lot of server farms were upgrading and there was a glut of these processors. But I only bought the proc after I managed to buy a "used" LGA2011 motherboard from Lazada for an also bargain price of Php2500. What I got was a pristine Dell Alienware R4 motherboard. But it didn't come with a backplate though.

Got a link for that board? I could use a cheap one to re-build the i7-3820.

I am sorry the board is no longer available. I bought it from Lazada from a local seller. A few days after I bought one, my guess it was sold out. If not for targeted ads on Facebook, I would not have discovered it.

Free 3-month trial subscription to Apple Music. I'm liking it more than Spotify.

WHAT?!?!?! How?!?!

Saw it in Facebook Marketplace, I couldn't believe it at first and thought it was a scam but I couldn't resist the price so I met up with the seller who even volunteered to have his picture taken. Lol!





1.7TB written after a fresh Windows 10 installation plus software and 157 power-on hours is a steal even though he only gave me one week warranty. Thanks Sir Brian!
Lucky me.  :lol:

Nokia 6 2018.
What am loving: fingerprint sensor. Unibody design which I hope will be sturdier from drops compared to more common plastic assembly.

What am not liking: Hybrid tray/slot meaning you can only either put 2 sim cards  OR a sim card + SD card.
Will never, ever buy a SONY ever again.

^ Review of the dashcam plox!

The dashcam is good quality for a Chinese product and for its price (Php 2999). The packaging is reminiscent of the packaging of the earliy Apple products. Box contents are minimal, just the USB (Android micro) power cable (not sure if its also a data cable), a small pry bar-like tool, a 12V cigarette to 5V USB plug adaptor (1 slot only), the camera itself, 2 static film stickers and a stick-on camera holder. The camera holder is not the suction type, you first stick the film sticker to the windshield and then stick the holder to the film, not the glass itself. Luckily they gave 2 stickers incase you replace your tints (or god forbid your windshield) down the road. The cable is 3 feet long, so with the included pry-bar (the manual calls it a crow bar), you can insert the cable into the upholstery, dashboard and ceiling for a clean fit. The camera takes 1080 videos and has an accelerometer and can save "events" in a separate folder. It also has wifi so you can set the camera and download/view the footage in your fone/tablet via an app. It has a touchscreen but no GPS though and no included micro-SD card. The daytime videos look fine, but for the night shots, I only checked the videos from the past 2 days drive (I only have a 32GB card), I  only saw the footage via the cam's screen. And they "seem" alright, as long as there illumination. I'll post a nightshot later.
