    Hardware Upgrade

    I swapped the d15 for a liquid cooler from corsair and machine runs well.
  2. Hi guys I have just built the above with 32gb ram. Running stock bios setting acheiving 4.4ghz stable with around 45deg at idle. Corsair 240 liquid cooling. Tried various overclock setting but can't seem to gain much more than 4.4 without a crash. Lots of info in web about settings but I was wondering if someone in the know could help me here to acheive 4.8 or 4.9ghz. Thanks in advance S

    MS sidewinder percussion 2 driver

    Windows has somehow managed to lose the driver for my sidewinder. I can't seem to locate the driver anywhere. If there a solution to this or could someone send me the relevant files. It happened before and Windows seemed to sort it but I'm scheduled to do a flight later and can't at the moment. Thanks in advance

    PTA Presets Megathread

    Hi guys Looking for advice on settings for a realistic view. Using I5-4670K and a GTX1080 with P3DV4, Envtex and ASP3DV4. No cloud art yet. Thanks Steve.

    P3DV4 I5-4670K and GTX1080

    Morning folks, Having microstutters with the above setup. Anyone using similar and would care to share their graphics settings, was working well on V3 but teething on V4. Thanks Steve
  9. Can urp be used with pta. I have both installed at moment. Looks ok but wondering if I may be asking the software to do the same thing twice. Thanks S

    Got my eye on Just Flight Piper Warrior

    Just did my first VFR in it from my local. Not the best but learning all the time. First attempt at a repaint as well.

    PA-38 Paint Kit

    Hi guys I'm looking to repaint a PA38 in my local flying club colours but don't know where to start. Any tips on this please as the white textured aircraft seems to be drawn in a way which is way different from other developers. Thanks

    PMDG 737-800/900 Activation Error

    Hi folks, I purchased the above product back on 19/3/2015 through PMDG website and this evening received a notification to update from the control centre. I followed the instructions and reinstalled to the new version 1.20.8389. Entered the 24 digit activation code from the original email once P3Dv3 started up and its being refused. Any ideas please. Thanks Stephen.
