The PC Aesthetic

You know how car guys really love their cars and spend so much time and effort into turning them into the beautiful road monsters they are? The case with PC fan boys is also pretty similar (pun not intended). When it comes to building high performance gaming PCs, you want your PC to stand out and make it known that it’s a powerful machine. Aesthetics are just as important as the power of the PC.

There are so many creative ways to build a PC and they’re all very rewarding; some people build their PCs just to show the community what they’re capable of and others build their PCs with love because they’re just that proud of their PCs. In fact, more aesthetic related PC parts are sold than actual performance parts, all over the world. These include PC fans with RGB lighting, cooling units, cases and even RGB lighting strips that serve no purpose other than to make your PC look pretty.

To build a beautiful looking PC, you have to first focus on getting the right kind of a case; your case should be spacious and well ventilated but it should also be designed according to your tastes and there should be ample room for future design improvements too. Once you have the right kind of case, you can figure out how you want to accessorise it even further; and what better way to bring out the best in your PC’s aesthetics than by adding RGB fans that you can use to create mesmerising hues all over your gaming rig? You can learn all about the best kinds of RGB fans available out there and what makes the so good by reading Cable Tech Talk reviews for fans.

What Mistakes You Need to Avoid When Buying a Second Hand iPhone 6

I was once approached by a friend who wanted to buy an iPhone 6 but did not have the money to go for a new one. Without hesitation, I pitched him an idea of a used iPhone 6, and after a few moments of convincing, he agreed to buy one. After a few days, he brings me an iPhone 6 that looks relatively new but with an odd rattle in the home button.

After a quick inspection of the phone, I figured out that the phone was opened for repairs by an unauthorized repair shop. Although the phone was working fine, he did pay a premium that was more than phone’s actual value. His mistake? He didn’t check the second hand iPhone 6 when buying it, instead, he just paid for the phone and came back home. The point here is to tell people that whenever you are in the market looking for a second hand iPhone 6, or any other phone for that matter, there are couple of mistakes that you need to avoid.

Not Asking For a Short Warranty

Although most used phones are the ones without warranty, shopkeepers still go ahead and provide a personal short warranty that is for 3 days or less. Some don’t, but the reputable shopkeepers certainly do. If you are buying an iPhone 6, do ask for this warranty for your peace of mind.

Not Checking The Phone

Checking the phone is extremely important if it is second hand. This includes a thorough external inspection, and then checking the phone’s software to see whether there is any app that shouldn’t be there. In addition to that, if you have finalized the phone, then another thing I would suggest is to perform a complete wipe once you have bought it.
