Apprentice winner Stella English ‘told there is no job by her boss on first day in £100,000 role’
The last thing Alan manufactured of any merit was the CPC6128 in my opinion (designed largely by Roland Perry), viglen ? christ I thought that PC brand died 20 years ago ? They mainly seem to sell very average PC’s at high margin into the public sector, ie a tax waste ? for public facing bureaucrats who are shit at IT sourcing ? and his business empire ? isn’t he mainly just a property developer now ? like most lazy people who want to be rich today and have little actual entrepreneurial skill, I suppose at least ALan did stuff in the fledgling tech industry back then and this is something to be thankful for, property re-developers they skim exorbitant mortgage payments of a tenant or the taxpayer through housing benefit and wait for house price increases its not exactly rocket science. He probably makes a great deal more off doing the apprentice ? than any of his business’s provide in real job opportunities for its contestants ?
And now for Stella English, hmm seems to be guided by the mail shall we say, the number of articles relating to her is bizzarre and her complaining about a scenario in which her job is too easy and shes getting 100,000 a year ? christ go get another job no-one cares for your kind of complaint, suing him for 5 million ? in this case regardless of the panto tv trash that is the apprentice which i would have thought was obvious to anyone but a moron ? how were you ever a trade floor manager ? im on the side of Alan in this case.
This is the kind of stuff Viglen do >
Viglen have beaten a string of overseas suppliers to a prestigious contract worth over £6m, having been selected by the Government Procurement Service to supply a range of computer equipment to the public sector.
The awarding of the contract will see Viglen supplying over 50 central and local government customers including a number of NHS and local education authorities with over 17,000 computers and 10,000 screens over the next two years. This follows a tender process which took the form of a reverse online auction. The contract is a 24-month supply agreement with two 12-month extension periods, and has the potential to grow further to include educational establishments, charitable organisations, social enterprises and the voluntary sector.
Roughly £352 per computer, not too overpriced for the UK taxpayer, and least Viglen are UK based, but they will probably make the major money from this on installation, training and servicing.
One who only has two set sets of interests to work for >
1: The Depositors not shareholders or traders interests
2: and the interests of the culture in which they operate ie not trading against the interests country they operate in.
ie a building society where the depositors, are the shareholders and any profits to be had by the trading arm are shared by all where a small level of sensible distributed risk is taken with my deposit and in return interest is paid on my account on the basis of profit share from trading to all depositors. Its not really complex is it. you know how all building societies used to be, before they were all bought up and despoiled by the majors for their own advantage.
since musical recording copyright should last 50 years ?
how come someone is still making money and charging for their music on itunes ? I guess the itunes stuff is a just for your convenience type scenario.
so actually nearly all the inkspots can be downloaded for free from the internet archive, because they are out of copyright, and plenty of other great out of copyright music, if your dying and you dont wish anyone to benefit financially from your music you can of course pass it all into the public domain.
QPI inverse scaling, and final ghz acheived
edit note > make sure you case is well ventilated ie no heat build up overtime inside case and you have the best cooler you can afford mine was a megahalems for this guide.
hmm, ive got to be honest and say that to prove absolutely tangible evidence of inverse core temps with higher QPI would be pretty arduous, and im thinking perhaps i should now take a break from OC testing and install some stuff, especially as the volts various i7’s are happy with seem to vary allot, so im guessing proving it will have to wait until ive got the time, to run some very scientific tests. but certainly the message from all my experimentation seems to be certainly for my setup that when QPI/VTT is AUTO set, i seem to be able to get to the higher speeds with much less trouble, as I’m currently stable at 4.2ghz im probably going to stop there, i’m writing this running prime quite happily at 4.2ghz full load for the last 2hrs, and she passed IBT (Intel Burn Test) on maximum for 3 passes without being above 82c on any core, I’d say IBT is the only stress test that can properly test stability to its extreme over the short term (5-10 mins) and that prime95 serves only for long term stability testing(hours, days etc), under prime95 blend at 4.2ghz its not going over 78c max on any core, PCH 32c and CPU 56c wierdly with this all my settings are auto ! apart from QPI PLL set to 1.28v (stock 1.1v) and CPU PLL set to 1.88v(stock 1.8v), one thing that worries me is now and again hardware monitor records a minimum cpu fan speed of 0rpm for a second or something, but this is another issue im sure this must be a software glitch but im going to check over everything, full fan spin downs seems to be 15 x longer than this 0rpm glitch appears for as I only see it ont he minimum column of hardware monitor and never catch it in the value column itself, so i think im ok eek. apart from the QPI pll and CPU pll being manual
this is what the bios is choosing to use volts wise for the other AUTO settings :
so settings in resume for me are :
bclock 200mhz and cpu multi 20x (turbo enhance enabled which pushes to 21x ie 4.2ghz stable)
this setting above might be whats making 4.2ghz a doddle on my machine ? as 4.2ghz starting with a 21x multi seemd much harder to acheive stable style.
also EIST is currently disabled not sure this is helping will turn it on at some point, so CPU-z reports my processor as running at 4200mhz constant as turbo seems to be permanently on in this scenario ?
Hyper threading is off (i figure iwas pushing my luck with HT at 4.2ghz on air ? another time ill test though i dont think HT is worth the temp increase it yields compared to higher OC.
QPI multi is 36 x
so QPI seems very happy at 7.2ghz
on the ex58-ud3r bios Performance enhance is set to extreme ?
auto sets CPU vcore to 1.4v in bios but in software ranges from 1.360v to 1.380v (stock vcore1.2875)
load line calibration is on, CPU-Z observed under full prime95 load it seems to run at 1.36v constant.
auto QPI/vtt is ending up at 1.515 (stock QPI/VTT 1.175)
auto set IOH core to 1.3v (stock 1.1v)
auto sets ICH I/O to 1.5v (stock 1.5v)
auto sets ICH core to 1.1v (stock 1.1v)
auto sets DRAM volts to 1.6v with my ram set at 1200mhz and 6.0 spd
auto sets PCIE to 1.5v
manual QPI PLL 1.28v (stock 1.1v)
Manual CPU PLL 1.88v (stock1.8v)
nb if pushing RAM to 2000mhz dram v goes upto to 1.7v but at 4.2ghz im running memory at a 6x SPD at 1200mhz this helps allot ?
all these auto volts settings were viewed/discovered with gigabyte easytune6 booted in windows ? so im guessing since this a gigabyte motherboard
theyre very accurate ? I know auto OC settings for everything other than QPI PLL and CPU PLL goes against all the grain of OCing law ? but my setup when set like this seems more stable than any other way, I have set it up, and it would be interesting to see if some people who had problems with 4ghz and above could try the same approach and see whether it worked for them. obviously you do this at your own risk, and most in the OC community would say that QPI should never be as high as 1.515v, ie 1.35v max for QPI/VTT ?, and they might be right as im willing to risk it on the basis im prepared to risk the effects as 77c max and the fact that auto set QPI/VTT when running 1600mhz and 2000mhz ram at stock CPU 2.66ghz speeds always seems to be 1.5v for me anyway : so can it be so wrong ? but see what your board auto sets QPI/VTT to when you run 4ghz and above or with memory at 1600mhz and above ? and reply to this thread post with your discoveries as i would love to know ? youll need easytune6 to view these auto volts settings from windows so im guessing only people with gigabyte boards will be able to do this ?
my MB is a EX58-UD3R v1.6 bios FG (listed wrongly as 1.0 earlier in thread)
Im going to upgrade the bios soon im hoping it doesnt throw all my settings out otherwise ill have to retrograde the bios, as these setting took too long to find for me perosnally to lose them for a BIOS update, but hopefully the BIOS update wont change the functionality of any of these Auto v settings.
I also decided to underclock the RAM ? as this seems to make it more stable at 4.2ghz I run my stock 1600mhz ram at only 1200Mhz ie the minimum 6 x SPD ram multiplier with a 21x cpu multi at bclock 200mhz, as this seemed to work for me perhaps its a trade off, between running the ram high or running the CPU 4.0ghz and above as at the moment i cant work out how to get both, as the major cause of instability for me seems related to syncing high mhz memory with the bclock set high enough to get 4ghz and up and when I do push higher with ram speed the auto set QPI/VTT seems to go higher still upto 1.55v ? but this doesn’t seem more stable at this point.
so a recommendation from this memory experience would be if 4ghz and higher is proving difficult for you, clock your ram lower it should help, though i wouldnt go below 1066 mhz as this would be a bit nuts.
also if 4.2ghz is proving difficult try a 20 x CPU multi with bclock 200 with turbo enhance on (and possibly eist off ? maybe speedstepping frequencys at 4.2ghz and down is more difficult for the CPU to handle the v fluctuations successfully ? but this is just what mine happens to be and works i have not tested whether speedstep is causing issues)
now that ive come to the end of OC’ing my i7 for a little bit 4.2ghz is more than i could of expected, i must say its been an interesting experience, thanks for all the help in getting to this point, and I hope this post proves usefull to someone in getting 4ghz and up.
improvements to test
I will report back once ive turned speedstep back on to determine whether that creates any instability issues, if not ill probably have that on as running constant at 4.2ghz seems a bit energy ineffecient though idle cores range between 40-46 after 3 hours on.
my next step might be to set these auto settings manually and see how stable it is with them set manually, and perhaps to then push lowering vcore to try and prove this inverse theory ? but at the moment I dont have time to go this far.
Wierdly with these auto settings all set manually i thought it seemed less stable which I cant really explain ? the reason why i decided to manually set QPI PLL and CPU PLL is they seemed to be the two settings that auto didnt raise in any way ? as i went higher with the bclock, and this is only a theorisation but since it seemed to handle raising all the other values well by itself, that perhaps these apparently static values on auto were getting out of sync with the rest, so i reasoned to raise them up, and this seems to help with stabilisation for me.
I do wish there was some totally clear scientific explanation of how all these volts settings inter-relate with each other and what ratios need to be preserved for stability, but i guess only the Intel i7
engineer who overclocked his own PC could tell us ? I wonder what speed he’s running at and what he understands about the i7 that the wider community doesnt ?
cheers to all at Techreaction

For the last 3 items I have bought of amazon, I have found some serious flaws with the way they are selling goods, they allow amazon marketplace sellers to sell items under a kind of amazon template for that item, without really having anyway to police such misbehaviour.
1: Misdescription : Seller selling factory refurbished or refurbished items as new, happened with a hard drive I bought.
2: No photos uploaded generally to show condition of second hand items etc, dependant on poor or possibly inaccurate word descriptions, makes 2nd hand book buying a lottery.
3: Not explaining that the warranty was also with the amazon seller and not the manufacturer.
this makes buying certain items on amazon a total lottery.
Andrew … stop binarising the arguments, its not 4K v 3D, if people are going to adopt passive 3D en masse then it sneeds to be full resolution HD passive 3D, Wake me up when there is some middle ground between 720p passive 3D (ie not LG’s fudged honest its Full HD3D) and £25,000 worth of television, im looking at this article, not because I want 4k, but what I want is Passive 3D at full HD no fudging, (And I dont want active 3D) and only want to pay a couple of hundred more than a standard passive 3D 720p model. Any overpaid footballer t***s reading this go buy one so the price comes down for the rest of us.
Also I think you forgot to append to your strapline “THE WORLD MOST TRUSTED TECH REVIEWS” with the words ‘for people who dont question anything’, REVENGE: I was once on the What Hi Fi Couch, and it left me permanently scarred as to how print journalism was done, I certainly think at What Hi Fi, your major bias in reviewing is in an attempt to increase the scale of the industry(admirable but should be noted), therefore reviews are never harsh on the basis you want more review models or something. The meaning of the words I gave as a reviewer on the couch, were twisted to the opposite of my intention for the review printed in that issue, in other words the team at what hi fi, had made there mindup as to how the review was going to go, long before getting the public people on the couch in, it was a head to head between a Linn Karik system and a Beo minimalist system, neither of which I was impressed with greatly, but then the review dungeon you have, as i like to think of it, is an abnormal environment to review hifi in ? But having been on the couch I personally know … never to trust your reviews, now that we live in the internet age you can delete my comment, but at least you cant re-write my actual words !
chinese eye up northern property
This isn’t positive news except for those who own property, and have some stake in ever increasing prices and hopes of downsizing in the future and being quids in financially, this is just more wealthy international foreign overlords buying up the resource of lands and houses in this small island, for the sake of their own financial reward, everything is for sale here in the UK, and best of all they pay no capital gains as foreign investors upon sale, they’re better off than the native buyer.
