    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    Here's my first build, tried to fit a beefy setup into a Corsair C70. I think it came out pretty well, had to get creative in some places to get everything mounted though ;) More pics/details are in the album: C70 Under Water

    ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread

    Raja, I picked up an Asus Maximus VIII Hero Z170 motherboard today. I'm very happy with the purchase, but apparently Asus decided to go with a 14-1 pin TPM header on the motherboard, rendering all current modules (including the current Asus one) incompatible. Are there any plans to...

    intel 730 shell shocker

    Thanks, I picked up two to put in RAID 0. Not the best price for the capacity with recent deals but I know these drives are going to be rock solid.

    What is the state of VR right now?

    I think that the biggest problem right now is the software and interface development. We have the hardware for the visual aspect down (oculus, vive) but there is a lot more that needs to be figured out before it can become commonplace. Even if the headsets were released today there would only...

    Does The Internet Really Make Dumb People Dumber?

    I agree that the internet is similar to the invention of the printing press, in that it greatly accelerated the ability of people to share and obtain information. The "smart vs dumb" argument doesn't make much sense though. People can definitely become smarter by absorbing information, however...

    Facebook Is Considering Adding A “Dislike” Button

    Upgrading from Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 1gb

    Don't buy from eBay if you want any sort of warranty support on your card. If you're buying new, it's worth waiting for a sale from an official source.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    So I heard back from support earlier today, it seems that they are still willing to move alpha access for this sale, but I would ask ahead of time just to be sure: So I now have a 350r... I'm done spending money on this game now. Probably. :D

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I'm extremely tempted to upgrade my 315p to a 350r. Does anyone know if the upgrade packages come with the 2-year insurance? EDIT: Anyone think they would let me melt my current package and pick up the 350r anniversary package instead and somehow keep alpha access?

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    The weapons in the demo looked like laser/energy weapons to me, which would mean there would be little or no recoil. They do seem to use magazines though which is kind of counter-intuitive.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Thanks for the info, I'll probably wait for it to go back on sale. The only thing I'd like to know is how much was it to upgrade? I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on this game before release, but I'd be willing to upgrade my 315p (got it in the alpha/beta package so I can only...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Fark... of course I missed the 350r upgrade :( Does anyone know when it ended? I can't find much info other than it was available a month ago.

    Patent Pictures Show New Google Glass Design?

    From the drawing, it looks like the projector covers the entire lens instead of a small box, which would be a huge improvement.
