    Yeah, it's clearly not quite prime time ready, but they're still toe to toe with an engineering sample 8C16T part, there is no way they would go for that layout without a reason. It would fuck up thermals for no reason to just have that offset "just because" and doing the IO die, again, wouldn't...

    Shattering Samsung Note 8 Showers Girl with Glass

    Did the earings come in contact with the lens at any point in time? Do they have stones? Cause diamond and most gemstones/semiprecious stones will scratch that deeply almost instantly, and it is under some pressure for sure, so if it had a scratch or gouge of any real severity, there's the...

    World of Warships Enters Open Beta!

    Spamming Cleveland with impunity so far. last 15 games I've lost once, and kept my star. I think I've fallen in love again. But I keep cheating on the islands with other islands. ;) I wish I were as good in the farragut as I used to be, I really love DD Ranked, but it just wasn't working for me.

    World of Warships Enters Open Beta!

    The duca shells have this really weird velocity fall off. They're amazing under 8km from everything i've seen velocity wise, but it seems the lightweight to them makes them lose velocity really sharply and end in basically a freefall when they reach targets over 12k.

    World of Warships Enters Open Beta!

    I'm super excited for next season of ranked and getting to bust out the Farragut again. Last time I had a chance to play it in ranked I went lossless all the way to Tier 8's start. Hopefully I can bring some of the magic back. If anyone wants a div mate DD, hit me up. FadedSpark on NA :)

    XPS 15: i7 FHD vs i5 4K ?

    If the config you want isn't on Dell's site, you can phone in to order and get essentially whatever you want.

    Dell Thunderbolt 3 Dock

    I've literally only read terrible things about them. Check out the Dell subreddit and you'll read horror story after horror story. I kinda want one for my XPS 15 but... Not with what I've read.

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    100% agreed on the stock trackpad drivers. Installing the synaptics ones gave me the gestures I love back.

    Laptop Picking Up Radio Station

    Only works if the existing one picks up the station wherever he bought it ;) Definitely a good idea to swap it out though. A problem that severe can have all sorts of lovely consequences electrically.

    15" asus or MSI rec for light gaming

    What issue were you having? Since I updated the drivers on the GPU I'm having a weird hang on shut down, but that'll probably sort itself soon. Probably needs an update from intel.

    Your Laptop Picture [H]ere (read first post for rules please)

    Just got it yesterday, have already wiped it and gone clean Win 10, keeping very little extra. Road testing it right now ;) Dell XPS 15 (9550) i5-6300HQ 2x4GB DDR4 256gb Samsung pm951 GTX 960m 4k IPS Touch Display Loving it. Expensive for what it is but the build quality leaves nothing out...

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    I hate the windows 10 precision touchpad stuff. It's great that it's integrated, and the responsiveness is there, but the gestures are different from the synpatics regular stuff. Three finger forward/back is necessary for personal sanity hahah, so I disabled it and went with the legacy synaptics...

    15" asus or MSI rec for light gaming

    Thing is a stupidly good deal. Just bought an XPS 15 myself, but was drawn to that one. Only reason I went XPS is because I HATE plastic.

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    Just showed up this morning, completely unexpected. Thankfully they don't ship with too much junk on them. Cleared the dell crap except premier color off, getting it updated and getting my important stuff over to it now. Keyboard is a lot nicer than I was expecting given it was one of the few...

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    Not sure. Hopefully not too bad. Says usually ships in 6-8 days though.
