    Just installed my first cooler. Now what?

    Hi everyone, I've been meaning to get an aftermarket cooler and try out overclocking for some time now, and yesterday I finally did it. I taped most of it and took a bunch of pictures as well, here's the link to the post about it...

    Ant Simulator Canceled, Devs Spent Kickstarter Money On Booze and Strippers

    Despicable, those types of people ruin it for the honest people trying to get some wind under their wings.

    390X or 980 for the long run?

    Even though I was partial to AMD, I'd say either is a good choice right now. Just keep an eye out for sales or wait till Black Friday and make your buy.

    Fallout 4

    Then I have some solace since I ended up not buying it right away :) Though my compulsive saving habits would probably mitigate the crashing problem.

    Can I reuse my Windows 10 key with new motherboard, RAM, CPU?

    You might even be able to go and manually edit the fields where Windows looks to check hardware. I know you can change the name in the registry, but I'm not sure if Windows looks deeper than that.

    Gabe Newell: Valve's Steam Machines Outperform Consoles At Same Price Point

    I'm sure SteamOS will progress more rapidly, at the very least. I'll reserve judgment for now, I suppose.

    Best Linux distro.. "best"..

    Yeah I can see the style being off putting to some, but functionality comes first. Compatibility is nice, but seamless integration is better. Nobody wants to start a presentation, only to notice halfway through some text box trails off the screen, or some link stopped working.

    Talk me out of building a budget AMD gaming rig?

    Yeah, plus if you're doing light gaming you could even rock a G3250. The only scenarios I would justify an AMD processor are: big sale/combo or video editing + BF4 gaming. Sadly, Intel's pricing and specs leave only a small window for a rational customer to choose the competition.

    Sennheiser’s $55,000 Headphones Sound Like Heaven On Earth

    Exactly, there is an emergent property when all these select pieces are painstakingly assembled, imbued, and christened -- allowing for angels and saints themselves to sing directly into your ear canal.

    High cpu temp on stock cooling 4790k

    Same exact issue, similar name. Probably, I guess one message board of PC geeks isn't enough to tell you that your thermal paste is probably the cause.

    Gamergate Movie In Development, May Star Scarlett Johansson

    I didn't either until I saw the reference a couple times too many... So I went and looked. I wish I hadn't.

    Fallout 4

    The PC version most likely has controller support.
