    Yup, LPE did the SC install along with ceramic coated long tube header and an x-pipe. I met the man himself and shook his hand when I picked it up. He bit the bucket like 6 months later... 3 months after his Chevy drag truck accident at the...

    I'd say you are very much speaking for yourself rather than most folks in in this forum if you are saying that you are willing to lay down $5K for the privealage of up-scaling select games on an 8K monitor and thinking that it is worth it. :D....

    I'll be surprised if you manage to hold it to just 200%... still will be a squint fest I bet. :D. My Z06 is getting long in tooth... it's an '02, Lingenfelter supercharged, roughly 500hp at the crank (rear dynoed at 469). Would love to...

    Totally get that. If not gaming, then 8K would be pretty sweet. Let us know how much you need to crank up the text scaling to be able to read anything on that sucker though once you get it. I would expect 200% at a minimum at least! To even...

  5. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Dell 8K UP3218K Monitor Released.

    Bullshit. I run a 4k monitor now. With an 8K monitor, you are at the mercy of the quality of the scaler you are using and the scaling factor alignment it happens to select if you run a lower resolution on it. My 4k monitor isn't limiting the...

  6. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Rigid (PETG) tubing Loop plan help w/ pics.

    I dunno, rigid tubing looks like waxed sex, but to me at least, looks run a distant third as far as priorities go when it comes to PC hardware. Function/performance all trump looks where my rig is concerned. When I start to degrade/sacrifice...

  7. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Dell 8K UP3218K Monitor Released.

    I can already do that with a 4k monitor. Your are simply referring to image scaling here, and none native image scaling is a mixed bag of dicks IMHO. Why the fuck would I want to lay down $5k on a 32" 8K monitor to do that?! Maybe it's just...

  8. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Dell 8K UP3218K Monitor Released.

    Errr, what's the point? Running a game at a low resolution scaled up to 8K isn't really going to look that much better than the same low resolution running 1:1 on a quality monitor whose native resolution happens to match. Sure, on an 8K...

  9. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Dell 8K UP3218K Monitor Released.

    Agreed. That much resolution packed into a 32" screen for anything but high end photography work is pretty much a waste. I've got a 32" 4k screen with the text scaling already set at 150% just to make things manageable for me. Now a 42"...

  10. Supercharged_Z06 liked Nite_Hawk's post in the thread Dell 8K UP3218K Monitor Released.

    It'd be one thing if this was a 40+" screen, but at 32" this is pretty silly imho.

  11. Supercharged_Z06 liked Kyle_Bennett's post in the thread Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DX12 Performance Review @ [H].

    Well, I think it is likely shocking for Brent from the standpoint that nothing has been done to tweak/fix this driver, or the fact that it "can't be" fixed, since August. As we have visited this title before....

  13. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread 1080Ti 3DMark Results Thread.

    Like the OP, I'm also curious to see what a waterblocked/OC'ed 1080Ti can do in 3DMark. While the 1080Ti is promoted as being ever so slightly faster than a Titan X at stock speeds, It seems to lose that distinction when both are properly...

  14. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Oculus vs Vive IQ?.

    Nope - no power adapter, just the active cable. I had the longer variant of that cable as well, but it wouldn't work, even with the power adapter inline. I've found that what works best is just normal, passive 6' USB 3.0 extensions coming out...

    Thanks! For the one furthest away (upper right corner of the room) I used this cable: Cable Matters SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Type A Male to Female Active Extension Cable 5 Meters/16.4 Feet For the other two, my PC is right between them and I was able...

    Guess I'm lucky to have 8' 8" ceilings in my basement man cave/entertainment area. My PC/VR area takes up half the room and the other half is devoted to the home theater setup. So, again this is what my setup looks like: [ATTACH] I used...
