#2166864 Official OCC 2018 Christmas Contest

Posted by That_Guy on Today, 04:24 PM in OCC News & Announcements

Damn... RTX would look great in 3440x1440 with a Titan lmao... especially considering my 980ti is kinda... lacking... in the frame rate department in that resolution. lol Good luck to everyone! Skipped 3 contests in a row after winning a PSU, hope the unused luck accumulates. lol

#2166823 I'm Back - Get me squared away.

Posted by That_Guy on 15 December 2018 - 02:19 PM in OCC Teams

Hmm. That is frustrating. I wish a new computer was in the cards, but its not.

I am running an AMD FX-6300 on a freebie mobo right now. The rig in my sig died a glorious death rendering ARC GIS projects about 3 years ago.


Christmas donation it will be I guess.


Good timing to enter the Xmas contest then, maybe you'll get lucky and get a nice GPU! THats like 2/3 of a new PC right there!


And welcome back!

#2166736 Supermicro Releases Open Letter Following Investigation of Motherboards

Posted by That_Guy on 11 December 2018 - 03:12 PM in OCC Front Page News

I'm sure that SM believes the pitch they are selling, but who audits the auditors, qc employees, engineers etc. and how do they prevent the common or uncommon bribery that runs rampant in that economy?


That goes for every country in the world tbh. Whatever the case may be, I hope they find the culprits to prevent this from happening in the future or maybe Bloomberg did some bad reporting, because lets face it, today's news outlets do A LOT of that.

#2165962 Windows 10 - Internet Explorer Startup on Boot - STOP IT!

Posted by That_Guy on 25 September 2018 - 05:02 AM in OS: Microsoft

I have reinstalled Windows, first initial boot was fine, but what I went back to the BIOS to change boot priority, same error kept coming up and I couldn't get in. However was able to start in safe mode, once I restarted from that, it seems to work. I'm going to restart it a couple quick more times to make sure. Then we can test performance. 


Nice dark font to mask that link you have hidden in the word "quick". Someone delete him please

Sneaky! Thank you for sharing, I often buy parts on Newegg and haven't heard about the attack up until now. Luckily, I haven't purchased anything within the date range but still nice to know

#2165446 MAD MAX Tribute PC Case Mod & Build

Posted by That_Guy on 01 August 2018 - 08:58 AM in Cases, Power Supplies and Modding

My apologies for the lack of updates. I've had to start another project build for a client. Paying gigs keep the lights on, so Max will need to temporarily park the Falcon


Really hope you'll get around to finishing this, I like the idea so much I've been checking the thread every time there was an update

#2164920 Bosco Needs Your Help

Posted by That_Guy on 04 June 2018 - 02:03 PM in OCC Front Page News

Thats the email I've used for PayPal, the payment went through. Also check that you're sending the amount in USD, I think PayPal changed it to CAD due to Dave residing in Canada. Not sure if that explains why much less was withdrawn from your bank account, I haven't tried via GoFundme, did straight up PayPal

PayPal link didn't open for me, using Chrome Version 66.0.3359.181(64-bit) here. Will copy the address from the link

These scientific articles are always such a great read, Guest_Jim. Never know what may be the next break-through in computing, silicone doesn't have that much life left in it so here they come - "orientronics" :D

#2164158 Need Help choosing Gaming Monitor!

Posted by That_Guy on 09 March 2018 - 05:41 PM in Video Cards and Monitors

You might consider getting a used TV for that purpose. I've picked up a 65" Sceptre (low-end brand) for $600 and i run a few windows for crypto trading, it works out pretty well and also pairs as a TV. Don't expect any decent gaming though, i think its capped at about 30 Hz so the image is superchoppy and 4k (even video) doesn't impress either, there is some flickering in the background, but with your budget you could score something of a smaller size and better refresh rate . Amazon here in US has 50" ones for $300 new, guess you could get something similar used in a good condition

#2164070 My NEW Youtube gaming channel! (G2P)

Posted by That_Guy on 04 March 2018 - 09:15 AM in Gaming

Yeah, it is available on Steam, you can add me my nickname is Neebitemnemo. War Thunder features both air and tank battles although I am more of a dogfighting fan rather than tanks. I also play Rocket League and trying out Final Fantasy Online right now
