    Why doesn't anyone bring back the complexities of the original Rainbow 6 game?!

    So it's been 21 years, but I really miss that level of immersion that the original game brought to the table. The idea that having one of your operators killed on a mission was a permanent thing was also pretty damn cool and WAY ahead of its time. Why are all the new "tactical" shooters so much...

    Upgrading synology - Any reason NOT to aim for overkill?

    To try and make a long story shorter, I've got an old DS216Play unit (and have loved it) but I need MOAR space. While I *could* just go buy two 10tb drives and copy everything on it over (it's two 5tb in a mirrored array) I'd rather move to a 4 bay unit so I can avoid this situation in the...

    4k(ish) projectors... worth it yet?

    I love my 1080p projector, and to my eye it produces a better image (or "experience" if you're into that) than my parent's 4k tv. Is there really as big of a leap between a 1080p projector and a mid-tier 4k projector as there is between a 1080p tv and a 4k tv? I'm a bit skeptical of all the "4k"...

    Thinking of upgrading work monitors - HP Z32x?

    My trusty PA271Ws are giving up the ghost (~33,000 hours of use) and it's time to find a new pair of accurate (but reasonably priced since a large portion of my daily work doesn't require accurate color) monitors. Based on what I've read the HP Z32X seems to fit the bill nicely. Reasonably...

    Why did I wait so long to delid?!

    TLDR: I'm lazy and waited months to tear down my system and delid my 7700k... mind blown by results. So months ago I bought the delid / relid tool for my 7700k, but being the lazy SOB that I am, I waited until today to tear down my loop and actually delid the damn cpu... I couldn't bring...

    Go home memory prices, you're drunk.

    I mean really now, I thought the price of ddr4 was ludicrous a few months ago, looking again today it appears the price of ddr4 has gone plaid. I paid $200 (and thought I was being foolish) for this kit a few months ago, now it's up to $399. Nearly $400 for a 32gb kit?! I was all excited to...

    Sigh... Origin account hacked

    Just a heads up, some asshat from the russian federation tried to hijack my origin account this morning. Thankfully I caught the email change password pretty quickly and reverted the change (and changed my password) but I still have to wait until their help center is open for calls to fix the...

    Surprised with the move from SB-E to Kaby Lake

    Slowly but surely the reasons I went with the X79 platform have been dying off. I used to run two GPUs and a SAS raid controller for a DAS array next to my rig. With SSDs growing in capacity and dropping in price so drastically over the past few years I no longer needed a bunch of 10k drives to...

    I don't always derp

    but when I do, I herp first. Finally got around to swapping out my old asrock extreme 3 for a Rampage IV extreme with EK blocks this past weekend. While I was at it I swapped my old MIPS iceforce HF CPU block for a EK Supremacy EVO to match the mobo and GPU blocks. After leak testing I fired...

    Should I wait to upgrade or scratch the itch?

    I've come down with upgraditis pretty bad, but I'm not sure if I should upgrade right now or wait a few months. At this point the primary focus of this computer is gaming - lots of Arma 3, some TF2, R6 siege, fall out 4, etc. My main rig currently has: Mobo: Asrock x79 Extreme 3 CPU: 3930k...

    !Toasty! Good deal on a great cartridge!

    It took a few months, but Amazon has dropped the price on the fantastic Denon DL-103 to compete with a fairly sketchy looking 3rd party seller. $161.43 with Prime shipping :D...

    Major compatibility oversight

    Just looked at the latest kitchenaid stand mixer, go figure they forgot to make it compatible with the thinset/grout paddle I've got.:mad: Are all these threads about kids with cheap korean monitors that only support DVI or "HDMI 2.0 is the ONLY connection I'll use" legit, or has nVidia...

    Corsair 350d (non window) $59.99

    I've had one in my cart for a few days debating building a matx box out of spare parts and noticed the price. Couldnt resist for $60. No stupid rebates and free 2 day shipping if you're a prime member...

    Any real harm in going overboard with the PSU?

    To cut a long story short I built up a beast of a computer for work a while back, and used the maxrevo 1350w psu. Now they want "moderate" versions of what I built, but with the same mobo, cpu, and psu. These builds do not need a 1k+ psu, but will it hurt anything or just be inefficient? It's...

    Could use another set of eyes

    make that quite a few sets... Long story short I'm a photographer, and until 6:30pm last night the studio I work at did not have a website. Yes that's right, it's 2009 and we didn't have a website. So I set out to fix that, and created a website that is exactly what I want, it's simple...
