    It's time for 4k! Samsung q7?

    About to take the plunge to 4k land. Intended use, living room, lots of video games, some movies. 444 chroma and hdr10 seem to be the big things to check for. I'm not thinking oled because of kids using it on consoles. The Samsung q7f is looking like the way I'll go. But I would like...

    Made a [H]arder sim chair.

    About a month ago, I built a sim chair. It came out pretty well and I shared it here and around and told my friends. Most replies were kind and positive. But one guy, innocently enough, asked "what does it move or something?" I was crushed. No it did not. I started looking around and found...

    locked myself out of bios please help!

    I was messing around with uefi and secure boot. I got it to work, but I can no longer get into the bios. If I do an advanced restart, I do have the uefi boot option, but all I get is a pause at a blank screen then boots to windows. Tried a cmos reset and also a full reset pulling the cmos...

    New Vive. How to Crank it up?

    So I finally got a Vive and 1080 Ti. Totally worth it. I found the steam frame time tool, GPU is a pretty solid 7-8ms and cpu is like 3-4ms in about everything. Looks like I can turn this thing up a little (y) I like Serious Sam a lot because the graphics settings work like a PC title, but...

    Vive Overhead Cable Management

    Picked up My Vive today. Waiting on the mail on a Ti. So I set up my over head cable system. Works great but it does eventually tangle. covers the whole 14' x 10' . Keeps cable behind you at all times, never hits your arms either. it is at 8' 8" high , it could have been lower but hides...

    Bought a ti, now i need to protect it. PS time.

    So I have a survivor corsair HX520 that has been with me through 3 systems. Being at the bottom of powerful enough and its age (10+) and spending $700 on a ti means its time to replace. Im on a z170 matx board so no fancy rgb stuff is necessary. I do run 1.35v overclocked 6600k @4.6 and over...

    Locomotion control idea?

    So I've been waiting on the tax man to get my Vive. Spent lots of time thinking about it, even made myself an overhead cable trolley system. Been watching demos and gameplay and such. Locomotion seems to be one of those areas that could use some help. I thought about what was required and...

    So I finally got to demo a vive

    So I finally made it to the Microsoft store to try it out. I have a gear vr and I've done my homework, so I knew what to look for. Low fov low res screen door. Yep it was all true.

    Can't decide 1070 or cf 480 for VR?

    I'm almost ready to jump into vr. I built my pc with it in mind (6600k z170mx) just needed some graphics. I was pretty sure I wanted to go with a 1070. Right price range on top of a Vive. Price on the 480s have dropped to where i can get 2 for $300 (4 gig) or $400 (8 gig). I'm thinking 8...

    PC Audio questions, op-amp, dac, hdmi, vr

    There is at least 4 ways to get sound out of my motherboard. Realtek ALC1150 with swappable op-amp over analog, dac usb port, optical, and via hdmi which I currently use. I connect to a Yamaha AVR. I figure the dac in the avr is pretty good but I haven't looked into it since the external DAC...
