    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    Hey, yeah, TechPowerUp looks like a nice alternative. A reasonable homepage layout, and a good mix of news and reviews...just like our beloved. Thanks!

    HP Announces HP Reverb Virtual Reality Headset: Professional Edition

    I have the Rift. The generally held position is that using only two cameras mounted in the HMD is going to be terrible for tracking the controllers. It's already questionable when using 4 cameras as compared to having 3 lighthouses.

    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    So, I checked each of these, and all they did was make me realize how much better the frontpage of hardocp.com is compared to its peers. Yuck.

    HP Announces HP Reverb Virtual Reality Headset: Professional Edition

    But, with only 2 cameras, this headset isn't going to be great for gaming anyway.

    What will be your go-to replacement for HardOCP.com

    I couldn't find a thread on this anywhere else, and though that "General Hardware" might be the best place for it? If it already exists somewhere else, please point me there... But... I wish Kyle the best. However, this site has been my absolute go-to for honest reviews and tech news since...

    What is that roundish thing on the right? And where's the steam key?!

    HOT! Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire ($9.93/83% off)

    Excellent! Glad that worked out. Be happy it was this "ahole" who grabbed it, and not someone else. ;-)

    HOT! Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire ($9.93/83% off)

    Not a problem, just mindlessly followed the link...From the looks of the email from humble, he should be fine..it contains the unclaimed key, AFAICT. Now I just need him to send me his email address... EDIT: sent him the link here via PM.

    HOT! Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire ($9.93/83% off)

    ssnyder28, can you confirm that vnplayer was the target? vnplayer, send me your email and I'll forward you the email from humble bundle to claim the key (which I haven't done yet, and I hope lets you actually grab it)

    ME! Accidentally. Can I gift it to you somehow?

    New Build

    The point is probably moot. Your build timeline is this winter. By that time, there's at least a decent chance that the new 11xx line will be out. That will change things. I'd suggest you re-evaluate closer to your build time. Even the processor should be in question with a 6 month...

    New Build

    Any reason you are going with the 1070 instead of, say, 1070ti, 1080, 1080ti?

    New threadripper 1950x build

    I had to add this just in case anyone stumbles on this thread later. I've just received an email that my order from Phantek's (customer service responding to my issue) is "out for delivery." So, contrary to what I found via google in the past, this was pretty fantastic customer service.

    New threadripper 1950x build

    One more Noctua fan for the back of the heatsink, and one more Phanteks fan for the back of the case arrived. Also, a GPU bracket. Everything is installed, and up and running. The new 2TB SSD arrives on Saturday, and I'm waiting for that to be installed before I deal with cable management on...

    New threadripper 1950x build

    Phantek's been pretty good on support, it turns out. Have a tracking label for the replacement top mesh. Awaiting clarification on the fourth bolt to hold the tempered glass in place. EDIT: Just received confirmation that they included the missing thumb screw in the shipment...I should be...
