    My free trial of PrimoCache disk caching software - would buy/recommended

    I gave it a try with 4GB ram allocated to my steam drive for some games i know to have high load times but are too big for my SSD. Figured it can't hurt to give it a test.

    Loving this 2600X!

    I built a 2600x yesterday in a gigabyte x470 and under the stock cooler im getting insane temps. Light loads in games like WoW it'll hit 75c and even humble prime95 it'll hit 90c. Checked the paste spread it was good and replaced it twice and saw no changes. No precision boost or overclock, just...

    Cleaning Keyboard

    I have a Logitech G710+ that i may have spilled beer on it and it sorta broke. After some cleaning it kind of works but it likes to scroll down at random points, whenever it feels like. I looked up some videos and guides on how to fix mechanical keyboards but nothing worked. I hit the sucker...

    Want JRPGs on Xbox One? Just Keep on Asking

    Japanese companies don't really want to release there content to a western market because the thought of selling 50-100k units isn't worth it. We've already been begging for titles for years, and these companies don't care.

    D&D Now on Steam, Complete with Dice and a Dungeon Master

    Still cheaper than buying the handbooks. The D&D rulebook alone costs $40 and you have to buy a new one every time they update it. Some campaigns can go for $70.

    Bloodborne: A Few Tips to Get You Started

    I fucking hated dark souls when i first tried it, but i tried to play it like a normal action 3rd person game. Later i tried again and i loved it. I even went out of my way to buy a ps3 just to play demons' souls. I've probably put in 400 hours combined in dark souls 1 and 2. Played bloodborne...

    Windows XP Still No. 2 Operating System

    My friend just got a contract job updating hospital computers, and the specific way they want it done takes hours per computer. So they had to pay 30+ contract IT guys to upgrade them and annoy the shit out of staff, so they'd rather not do that until its 100% necessary. I wish they would...

    Windows XP Still No. 2 Operating System

    Your computer is low on memory. Also....

    Me and some of my friends have been having the same problem recently at the same time. We've been getting those memory errors for a while and it happens when playing some games, or using chrome/firefox on youtube for a long period of time. I have sneaking suspicion it could possibly be caused by...

    The 20 Coolest Arcades in the World

I have to drive 300 miles to find the nearest street fighter cabinet and they only carry two linked cabinets and...

    So my Samsung SSD caught fire

    The hiper was the other guys smoking rig that was posted above. I HAD an antec neo eco 620, which is just a rebrand SeaSonic S12II. Also i never had any of those molex to sata connectors in my rig. I wouldn't trust a 2 dollar peice of plastic and wire to power something that cost me over 100 bucks.

    12 Video Game Annoyances That Need to Die

    Wasteland 2 Delayed After Getting Too Big

    They got extra money, and gave the game more content. When it comes to stuff like Wasteland and Tides of Numenera we can wait a little longer. After all, we waited this long we can wait some more. It's not like they ran out of money and may deliver a sub-par game, or never deliver at all.

    Reallocated Sector Count

    Well that makes me slightly feel better. I'll be checking on it daily to see if the values increase. I'm definitely not looking forward to having to find a way to back up this drive if it dies.

It's 1TB Barracuda i've had for about a year, and its about 99% capacity (2GB left). I'm just wondering is the error because its...

    It's Time For Gaming's Contractors To Strike?

    I did contract work for some mid to small size gaming companies. Wasn't really rewarding and when you point out bugs alot of the programmers get pretty pissed. Aside from that it was fairly enjoyable. If you like to find bugs and break games, than it can be a pretty enjoyable job. Downside is if...

    PowerColor Radeon HD 7790 TurboDuo Video Card Review @ [H]

    Payed 190 for a 7850, have never been happier. After going from a 1GB 4870 to a 2GB 7850 i can really feel the different alone in just the amount of vram it has. Even via software some of my games are exceeding 1.5GB vram usage and still feel crisp and smooth at reasonable settings.
