    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...

    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?

    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...

    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.

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

    The Days Of Owning Games Are Coming To An End

    While this is true, there is a loophole where if you own the physical media the game comes on then you are able to transfer the license, which is how people are allowed to sell used console games and music CD's. Our internet infrastructure has advanced to the point where content providers can...

    Do I need a video card for this build?

    Why not just try it with the on-board video, and pick up a dedicated card if it doesn't work? I can't imagine you would need anything more for streaming though.

    Scientists Develop Material So Dark That You Can't See It

    I can only imagine how hot it gets... that is a lot of energy to disperse. Also, NASA apparently did something similar a few years ago, but not at quite that level of absorption.

    Those setups look awesome, but it's just depressing that the mouse is so much better for dogfights and I probably wouldn't end up using them.

    Titanfall - $29.99

    IMO there is little difference between 96hz and 120hz for gameplay. My 1440p setup is capable of 120hz but I usually leave it at 96 to give my video card some breathing room. Also, to me a higher refresh rate causes much less strain on my eyes but I would hardly say it gives an outright...

    Holy hell this is awesome. No issues running it on my PC, and the framerate is actually quite good with my R9 290. Combat was really hard though until I figured out that there was a targeting system :p

    Does any one here have 290 crossfire and plays BF4?

    You have to run the atidkmag patcher, 144hz @ 1080p seems to be just above the 330mhz pixel clock that it supports by default. http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher

    There aren't outright passing lanes, but a lot of states have laws that slower traffic should keep right, effectively creating a passing lane.

    Jammers? Yeah, no thanks. All of my music and map data are streamed over my cellular connection. Not to mention my phone calls, which go to the hands-free system built into my car... :rolleyes:

    Would you replace defective capacitors on 5 yr. old motherboards ?

    IIRC you can get capacitors rated for a higher voltage than the original, but the capacitance (uf) must remain the same. So you're probably not going to be able to do a blanket replacement on the whole board.

    Would you replace defective capacitors on 5 yr. old motherboards ?

    It's well worth it if you DIY and recap the whole thing, but I wouldn't pay a shop to do it unless the board is irreplaceable.

    I'd say just go with the rift, the retail version should have a higher resolution than the current dev kits and it would be way more immersive than eyefinity. Plus no bezels to annoy you :p I had a pretty good eyefinity setup going, even debezeled the monitors, but ultimately decided it was...

    Biggest mistake I've made in a while. Come laugh.

    I had just brought home a brand new Sabertooth Z77 motherboard for a build... pulled off the plastic cap to make sure all of the pins were in good shape, and went to put it back on until I got around to building the machine... I somehow managed to mess up putting the plastic cover back on and...

    So I've been playing around with the mod that lets you fly ships. It's definitely fun, but something feels a bit off, like the physics aren't being simulated correctly. For example when you turn, you "come out" of it without applying reverse thrust. That plus acceleration is completely...
