Whilst I’m generally really impressed with the quality and function of Gigabyte Motherboards, I’ve now encountered the same issue with 3 separate ones – an i5 and two i7’s, running Windows or Linux. The issue is that you shut down the computer, everything goes off.. then starts right back up again! This appears to be…

I’m running through one of my cars tidying some bits and pieces up. I dropped the wheels off to clean the calipers and suspension, and didn’t realise just how bad they were. It doesn’t look like they’ve EVER been cleaned Covered in grime and dirt, really ground in and built up. This is a job…
