    Yeah, it's clearly not quite prime time ready, but they're still toe to toe with an engineering sample 8C16T part, there is no way they would go for that layout without a reason. It would fuck up thermals for no reason to just have that offset "just because" and doing the IO die, again, wouldn't...

    Shattering Samsung Note 8 Showers Girl with Glass

    Did the earings come in contact with the lens at any point in time? Do they have stones? Cause diamond and most gemstones/semiprecious stones will scratch that deeply almost instantly, and it is under some pressure for sure, so if it had a scratch or gouge of any real severity, there's the...

    World of Warships Enters Open Beta!

    Spamming Cleveland with impunity so far. last 15 games I've lost once, and kept my star. I think I've fallen in love again. But I keep cheating on the islands with other islands. ;) I wish I were as good in the farragut as I used to be, I really love DD Ranked, but it just wasn't working for me.

    World of Warships Enters Open Beta!

    The duca shells have this really weird velocity fall off. They're amazing under 8km from everything i've seen velocity wise, but it seems the lightweight to them makes them lose velocity really sharply and end in basically a freefall when they reach targets over 12k.

    World of Warships Enters Open Beta!

    I'm super excited for next season of ranked and getting to bust out the Farragut again. Last time I had a chance to play it in ranked I went lossless all the way to Tier 8's start. Hopefully I can bring some of the magic back. If anyone wants a div mate DD, hit me up. FadedSpark on NA :)

    XPS 15: i7 FHD vs i5 4K ?

    If the config you want isn't on Dell's site, you can phone in to order and get essentially whatever you want.

    Dell Thunderbolt 3 Dock

    I've literally only read terrible things about them. Check out the Dell subreddit and you'll read horror story after horror story. I kinda want one for my XPS 15 but... Not with what I've read.

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    100% agreed on the stock trackpad drivers. Installing the synaptics ones gave me the gestures I love back.

    Laptop Picking Up Radio Station

    Only works if the existing one picks up the station wherever he bought it ;) Definitely a good idea to swap it out though. A problem that severe can have all sorts of lovely consequences electrically.

    15" asus or MSI rec for light gaming

    What issue were you having? Since I updated the drivers on the GPU I'm having a weird hang on shut down, but that'll probably sort itself soon. Probably needs an update from intel.

    Your Laptop Picture [H]ere (read first post for rules please)

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    I hate the windows 10 precision touchpad stuff. It's great that it's integrated, and the responsiveness is there, but the gestures are different from the synpatics regular stuff. Three finger forward/back is necessary for personal sanity hahah, so I disabled it and went with the legacy synaptics...

    15" asus or MSI rec for light gaming

    Thing is a stupidly good deal. Just bought an XPS 15 myself, but was drawn to that one. Only reason I went XPS is because I HATE plastic.

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    Just showed up this morning, completely unexpected. Thankfully they don't ship with too much junk on them. Cleared the dell crap except premier color off, getting it updated and getting my important stuff over to it now. Keyboard is a lot nicer than I was expecting given it was one of the few...

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    Cancelled and reordered... The SSD / 6 Cell model went on sale and with discounts ended up the same as the HDD model... Boo for delays, but yay for free upgrades. Gonna probably go 512gb 950 pro eventually, but 256 should be fine anyway.

    Asus or Dell

    From experience with both those chassis, the Dell is definitely a more solid build. Dell also features AC wifi, and comes in at .7 lbs less. If the $77 bucks doesn't break the bank, I'd go dell.

    Dell XPS 12 / 13 / 15 with Skylake

    Just went and ordered the XPS 15 myself... 4k, regular battery (Yay canada, literally no option for the big one.) and going to be upgrading it as soon as I can I guess. Pretty excited. I'm upgrading from the l421x, which was an absolutely great laptop that made it 3 years without any...

    Destiny - Discussion Thread

    This halloween event is super fun. I wish the masks were wearable with your regular gear, but I'll take the light level hit for some shenanigans :D And very glad they are NOT class specific. I gotta visit this thread more, I love this game too much.

    I need some urgent help on losing detection on a Colada gaming USB keyboard

    It has a digital controller that manages the inputs it gets from the switches you are pressing. That controller is dead. You require a replacement keyboard.

    Toshiba S50 Laptop - i7-4700MQ + GT740 - $540 [Ends 8/14/14]

    It's a plastic track pad on this series. But, assuming you take care of a computer like this, it's a hell of a bargain for that much performance. Sure it's built like crap, and you're going to definitely want a clean install of windows before you do anything with it (Back up the toshiba...

    Samsung Galaxy S5 Watch Thread

    Man, I've owned every GS device to this point, and I'm actually not interested in this one... The GS4 was almost a pass, but with the HTC One not offering a swappable battery / a giant battery, I went GS4... This? Meh. Completely unexciting with phone already having just about every feature...

    Your favourite mouse pad/surface?

    Razer Goliathus XL.... Nice for passing out at the keyboard ;) I've also got a steelseries starcraft II pad for the spare desktop, and a Logitech G-series surface (Not sure which one... It was a promotional Not-For-Sale item I got from them) that are really nice too. Want to track down a...

    Your favourite current gaming mouse?

    G700s for gaming at home, G602 for school/gaming on the go. Tons and tons of awesome functionality with the g602, and I haven't changed the batteries since I bought the thing in october (I think it was october... )

    ASUS X79-Deluxe USB BIOS Flashback Issues

    I flashed the new bios version yesterday... 0 issues. Quick rename, popped it in to the flashback port, held the button for 5 seconds, and a few minutes later, post. Painless. Check your MD5's and try a different USB stick maybe?

    X79 Deluxe - WIFI stopped working

    It's nice to have as an option, and knowing that it's at the very least a power card/antenna combo. If I move out for school, I'll likely need to go wireless, saves me the hassle.

    What motherboard has stayed relevant for you the longest?

    I loved that board, but there was no upgrade path to speak of. AGP, DDR1... Thing overclocked like a beast, but I didn't get to upgrade it. I had to replace it wayyyy too quickly.

    X79 Board with the best long term experience

    I'm using an x79 Deluxe right now, have been for about 3 weeks... Exceedingly easy to set up and use, full UEFI Compatibility with windows 8, so all of the fast boot features work flawlessly, and it was just a pleasure to overclock. Good layout too, didn't have to reorganize my case much to...

    Intel Retail Edge Winter Deal

    I haven't really spent a lot of effort trying to overclock since i got the thing (my h100i is being really dumb and I'm worried it might be dying... :( No pump problems, but it keeps losing connection to corsair link, which is disconcerting. 4.2 came very easy though, so that's something.

    Intel Retail Edge Winter Deal

    Same. Either the demand was incredibly high compared to the 3930k's they ran the past two purchases, or intel had less chips and is shoring up the numbers they need to fill orders. Either way I'm a little annoyed. Wanted a christmas gift to myself. :( Only thing I bothered buying too.

    You can absolutely verify through paystubs, that way employees without email access are eligible. In my store, only SRs and higher, as well as all GS agents have email access.

    Dude, you used someone else's account, with your credit card. You made the account brand new to do this (Mistake 1. Should have made it months in advance. ) and shipped to your own address from what I can gather from what you're saying (Mistake 2. Always have something match the actual...
