  1. Sucks. I would think they should reward the customers not try to sorta-scam them
  2. Epic! Love it! Little blue & red light look amazing, reminds me of Need4speed Hot Pursuit! Now you just need to mount a couple of wheels to the sides of the table for full immersion haha
  3. Tell me those fans where the headlights should be are LED/RGB, because I totally want to see them in the dark/lit up!!
  4. I dig the concept! Now you got me thinking if I should build my own desk haha
  5. I might make a jump to 4k but I guess I'll wait until 30** series NVidia are available... TitanXP chugs well in 3440x1440 for now!
  6. Wow. I remember the times when my Asus PG34 was the pinnacle, gone are those times! Congrats thats a great looking monitor. I've picked up the 34" Acer at first but the lightbleed was terrible. How is it on this one?
  7. I do, but I use my speakers to listen to the music a lot when I am searching for new material for DJ sets. Having them pointed outwards, as AkakmanH said, muffles the highs a bit plus I am not a big fan of overhyped bass which is the reason I went with Yamaha DXR15s for a nice, flat, balanced sound. If used them for causal gaming etc I probably wouldn't worry about positioning as much but I am no sound expert and those are just my personal preferences when using PC connected speakers
  8. Merry Christmas to y'all! ...and to the year 2020 - Yippee Ki Yay, motherfucker!
  9. If you compare a line of motherboards from the same manufacturer you'll notice that with higher pricepoint some features are added, like extra USB/PCI ports, higher RAM speeds, better quality components to allow for higher overclocks etc. Basically when picking a motherboard think about headroom on all the components you want to run in the system and make sure the motherboard supports everything you plan on using. Once those requirements are met, you have your perfect motherboard. There is no point in paying extra for, lets say, a model that allows for higher RAM speeds if you don't plan on using sticks that run at that speed. Hope this helps
  10. GSkill TridentZ RGB series are pretty nice both performance and aesthetics wise, I used to use an 2x8 Gb kit and now switched to a 2x16, both worked well
  11. Total War: Warhammer II please! The game is very visually and CPU intensive, I think it'll be a great addition to the list. Plus they have 3 built-in benchmark maps
  12. That last video can't be viewed, Jim. Says "Unavailable. This video is Private" when I try to play it
  13. Just to chime in, I've just went through a similar ordeal although with different hardware config. I've got me a 2x16Gb G.Skill 3200 DIMMs and tried to install them on an Asus Z370E in dual channel mode. Well basically after it refused to boot with anything but me having 1 stick of RAM in DIMMA2 or two in DIMMA 1/2 (single channel) I've started looking for the problem, because the general consensus is that this configuration works fine for many. So, I've cleaned the RAM contacts. I've cleaned RAM slots. I've tried XMP, updated BIOS, tried every slot variation possible, tried over/downclocking, Memtests of both sticks came up fine, then I've read that bent/dirty CPU/MB pins could be the culprit so I took everything out and cleaned everything under an electronic microscope. Then I've moved M2 drive that was ajacent to RAM into another slot. Then I've tightened/loosened screws on the CPU cooler because, according to some, overtightening one screw may tilt the CPU in the socket and some of the pins won't have a contact. Then I've checked the power connector to the mobo to make sure everything is tight and then basically every connector on the mobo. Guess what, nothing helped because of course it didn't. So finally I've pulled the rear panel off and started looking through the wires hidden there, and I've realized that the USB connector that goes from the mobo to the front pannel was touching the mobo in the area where the ram slots are soldered to it and possibly shorting them... So, I've moved it and strapped it with a ziptie. Tried again - PC booted with DIMMs in DIMM A2/B2 and works with no problems since! So yeah sometimes the bug is hard to squish, I hope you resolve your MB/Ram woes though
