    Grand Theft Auto V

    Has it been more than three years since Grand Theft Auto IV? Time sure flies. In any case, Rockstar Games has just officially announced today the fifth main game in the GTA series, Grand Theft Auto V. Watch out for the first-ever trailer on November 2, 2011. What I'm really curious about is just how graphically different Grand Theft Auto V will be from GTA IV. As you guys know, the iCEnhancer mods for GTA IV(PC) are amazing, so GTA V has its work cut out for it. Then again, GTA V will likely release first on consoles, so we'll have to wait for months until the PC version.

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    Well, we probably won't be getting Half Life: Episode 3 anytime soon, but Counter:Strike players should be very pleased with Valve's (supposed) next game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Several sources strongly indicate that Valve is making a Counter:Strike game, but we don't have enough details yet to confirm if its an add-on to Counter-Strike: Source or a brand new Counter-Strike title. But take a peek at the Twitter #CSGO that's trending right now, and get hyped along with other CS fans.

    A different kind of contest @ OCC 2013

    Here's my PC specs: Processor: Intel G620 @2.6GHz Motherboard: Asus P8Z77M-Pro Memory: G.Skill PC3-10600 4GB(2x) DDR3-1333 | Xigmatek Dragoon Memory Heatsinks Graphics: AMD Reference 6950 2GB Storage: OCZ Octane S2 128GB SSD | Hitachi 2TB 7200rpm Power Supply: OCZ ModXtreme Pro 700W Casing: Silverstone SG02B-F Display: Samsung SyncMaster XL2370 Country: Singapore Thanks for running this contest, OCC!
  4. well, space-wise - i still have enough space to put on a 2nd Radeon 6950. but maybe someone here has already tried using the BS-08B with the SG02B-F, im really curious just how much of a tight fit it is.
  5. I just got a used Silverstone SG02B-F, and so far I'm able to squeeze in every component on the cramped case. As can be expected however, my Radeon 6950 2GB isn't enjoying the limited space, as its fan is running on high whenever i play graphically intensive games such as The Secret World. I'm thinking of slapping on a Lian Li BS-08B PCI cooler on the 2 vacant PCI slots underneath the VGA card. So the question is, will the Silverstone SG02B-F have enough space to accommodate the huge Lian Li BS-08B PCI cooler? I haven't seen anyone here try it, so hope to hear any input from you guys. Thanks.
  6. Hi folks - I just recently got a AMD Reference 6950 2 GB card and was looking to improve performance further by unlocking the shaders, but have been unsuccessful. Here's what i did 1.Used ATI Winflash to backup original BIOS 2.Used multiple 6970 Bios (SAPHHIRE, Club3d, Asus) 3.The BIOS switch on the card was set to the 1 position 4.Load the HD 6970 BIOS into Winflash by clicking Load Image, followed by Program. Winflash says i was successful, so I did a reboot, but I keep getting this beeping (2x) sound and it won't boot up at all unless I switch the BIOS switch to 2. Also used multiple 6970 bioses but still unsucessful. Any ideas guys? Thanks!

    Can't Flash my AMD Ref 6950 2GB

    good for you - now if i could just figure out how to unlock mine...

    Can't Flash my AMD Ref 6950 2GB

    isn't the #2 switch supposed to be the backup in case something goes wrong with the flash mod? P.S. Yeah, i accidentally tried that too(forgot the switch was in the #2 position), but it wouldn't allow me to flash it.

    Can't Flash my AMD Ref 6950 2GB

    Yeah, I'm currently using the default BIOS on the card right now - and it's working fine, too. Also, the BIOS Switch is set to 1, which uses the successful flash of the original BIOS.

    Can't Flash my AMD Ref 6950 2GB

    Yes, i could also flash the card back to the original BIOS, which I backed up before the attempt.

    Can't Flash my AMD Ref 6950 2GB

    Yes it works fine, i just flicked the bios switch to 2 and the card uses the original BIOS. also used RBE to unlock the 6950 but i get the same issue - 2 beeps and it won't bootup unless i turn the bios switch back to 2.
  12. Hey folks, I know that it's not exactly a good idea to play Witcher 2 (even on the lowest [email protected] x 768) with a measly NVIDIA GT540M 1GB-based laptop, but maybe you guys have got something to suggest on how to improve framerates for this game. **Drivers have been updated to nvidia's 296.10 Specs: Acer Aspire 4743G I5-480M 2.66Ghz Nvidia GeForce GT 540M 1GB 4GB DDR3 / Win7 64 HP Mass Effect 3 / Skyrim / Age of Conan / Arkham City - run fine (playable) on low settings, but Witcher 2 is extremely unplayable, which is a shame, as it's a great game. So, apart from any hardware upgrades, any suggestions on how to improve my Witcher 2 performance on this laptop? Thanks!

    What OS does your phone use?

    My Nokia 6070 is probably the most primitive of the bunch here.

    Skyrim- Race / Class Poll

    I should've played as a Khajiit instead of an Imperial. Heck, I might as well do that this weekend =)

    Grand Theft Auto V

    The Grand Theft Auto V trailer is now live! What did you guys think? Was it worth the massive build-up? You've probably noticed this as well, but PC Gamer's coverage of GTA V has me really excited about the possibility of a PC version released alongside the consoles. Fingers crossed.

    Grand Theft Auto V

    Same here. I think I'll reinstall GTA IV again for old times' sake. =)

    What was your favourite movie of the summer?

    Nicholas Winding Refn's "Drive" was a great movie. Anybody else seen it?

    A Night at the Races

    So, I was going to spend another boring Friday night brooding at home, when a friend called to give me his F1 Night Race ticket. Needless to say, I managed to borrow a camera and shot some not so clear pictures, but still, at least I had some. My ears are still ringing from the screaming F1 cars rocketing past me at 200 mph, I may have to call in sick this Saturday!(I work weekends).

    A Night at the Races

    heheh, well my wifi is wonky, but the shutter speed for these shots was around 1/640, the kit lens' autofocus couldn't keep up with the 200mph car speed =) maybe i'll have better camera gear next year. Preferably one that i own
