    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Skyrim. Yes, Skyrim. Never fully completed the main quest because "oh look, a dungeon" ... New install and I'm installing a bunch of mods so I can see what it will look like with my two 1080's.

    What is the point of a NAS?

    I use a NAS for simplicity and space. My Drobo 5N fits perfectly on a shelf under my printer (there's room for two more if I need them). Right now I have just some files on there but I plan on ripping movies to them.

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Yes. I did everything they asked and the right display still is too high. I took everything apart and took some measurements. From the desk surface to the bottom of each arm varies by 3/4" (the right side is higher). There is not enough adjustment to overcome this. I sent the company more...

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Received an email yesterday. They gave me a couple of things to check. I did some stuff before contacting them. I'll double check everything according to their instructions and see what the issue is or if I have a defective part. Here is a picture showing the problem.

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    A quarter of the way through changing up my desk/computer setup. Having a problem with the monitor mount. The right display is 1" higher than the other two. I'm not sure what's causing it but I sent them an email and hope to hear back. I tried every adjustment I can and it's not helping.

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    I just bought another monitor stand from I have their original one and wanted to add one above my three. The extension pole wouldn't fit on the mount I had. I emailed them and they explained that the mount was updated, so I bought the new one. I'm in the process of changing...

    I was looking for a mount a long time ago and people wanted too much money. That is until I came across EasyMountLCD. The best made and least expensive mounts out there. When ever someone is in the market I don't hesitate to recommend them.

    Best shooter game you have ever played?

    triple monitor setup 25" or 27" (1440p)

    I have three Dell E2715H displays. There is a lot of head turning if I have multiple windows open on each display. I like it and it's not an issue anymore. The angle I have them setup, they measure 6 feet from edge to edge (to give you an idea of how much you have to turn your head). I upgraded...

    Thoughts on Refirbushed drives

    I just bought two refurbished WD 250GB Caviar Blue drives for my Dell SFF computers. The drives cost $12.99 each. If one of the drives fail, so be it. The computers won't be used for anything important.

    The Death of the CRT and Classic Arcade Machines

    Does [H]OCP have a retro computing section of the forums?

    Yes, it would be nice. I'd like to build a couple retro PC's. One being a IBM 5150 and the other using a socket 478 motherboard.

    Guys I have waited long enough...I need help

    For a case I'd say the 750D from Corsair. I have the H110i cooling my i7 5960X (X99 platform). I don't like the stock fans however, one case fan died and one for the H110i was making a bunch of noise. I replaced all 5 fans.

    what do you guys do with all your monitors?

    I get strange looks when anybody comes over the house. That's until they use my computer, then they like it. I have 3 Dell E2715H 27" displays, the center one is used for gaming (unless I'm gaming in 2D surround, in which all three are used for gaming). When not gaming I usually have a browser...

    Dumb Mistakes?

    Removed the memory from my Intel NUC (forgot why) killed it and had to buy more. Cut myself on a case (back when the cases had sharper edges). That's about it.

    140mm case fans: Noctua NF-A14 vs Phanteks PH-F140SP vs Fractal Design HF-14?

    I'm not concerned with looks as of right now. I will be when I plan my next build. Is there a "static pressure" Noctua? I need two for my radiator.

    140mm case fans: Noctua NF-A14 vs Phanteks PH-F140SP vs Fractal Design HF-14?

    I'm also looking for 140mm fans. The ones that came with my Corsair 750D and my Corsair H110i are slowly dying. I was looking at the "nicer" ones from Corsair (the fans with the colored rings) or the new "ML" fans.

    Any games you suck at but love anyway?

    All of them. I really suck at games that are third person (I can't seem to control my character properly - running into walls). I play first person games solely because of that. I'm trying to get better at games like Homeworld, Homeworld Cataclysm, and Imperium Galactica. Old games, but there...
