    removing scratches from arcylic?

    I've cleaned up acrylic with a heat gun before. I looked into the novus stuff for cleaning up 3d prints too. Are most side panels actually acrylic or are some polycarbonate? I'd figure acrylic since it's shinier and less expensive, mostly the less expensive reason though. There are lots of youtube videos on smoothing either one with polish or heat guns. Might be worth the time to check there to see if your expections would be met with either method.

    Looking to buy a new HDD for Steam, what do?

    First thought that came to my mind was one of the hybrid drives. From what I understand they try to intelligently cache things in the solid state portion so it may take a few times of playing a game for it to load into that portion. For multiplayer games that use the same maps repeatedly it sounds like a good idea. For single player games that load levels in a sequential order, it seems the cache logic wouldn't give you any advantage though. Anyone have any real world experience with these drives?

    120 hz Settings

    I could see it accepting 120hz, and just dropping frames.

    120 hz Settings

    Also, to double check that you're getting 120Hz vs 60Hz, I remember there being a program that you could watch as it moved a white box around the screen, it would visibly skip spaces @ 60Hz vs 120Hz.

    120 hz Settings

    Some are hard locked, some go with the lowest monitor setting available, so removing the 60Hz options or making the 120Hz options top of the list force 120Hz in alot of games. Depends on how you attain the 120Hz setting as well whether it's with CRU or Nvidia's custom settings, CRU seems to be more consistant in getting games to recognize the 120Hz for me though.
  7. I never minded brands like Westinghouse since the ones I've had/setup used good panels and skimped on other stuff to get their price down like stylish housing and sound components. Which works out to be a good deal if you have any kind of seperate sound setup.
  8. Some BIOS have memory test options in them. Other than that, I would suggest a bootable memory testor on a USB drive, there were a few out there when I used to repair computers regularly. You can run that a few times to verify it's that stick, memory slot, or a particular memory slot and stick combination.

    Turtle Rock's Evolve

    For some reason when I first pictured this game, I thought of Monster Hunter in L4D styling with the monster being played by a person. Now I want that to be a thing, as well as whatever they are actually making.

    The trick doesn't involve a second potato does it?

    Capacitor replacement

    It's only two solder points, but like they have said already a good soldering iron & tip are a must unless you can make up for it with skill (at which point you'd have the proper tools...). The ones I've seen go bad are typically surrounded and a pain to work on which is why you don't want to half ass it on the tools. Since you say they are about to pop I am going to assume they're electrolytic capacitors. With that in mind, make sure you make note of the polarity of the one you are removing and the one you replace it with. As long as you replace it with the same voltage & farad rated capacitor (and the same type which I

    I wish they knew how happy the feedback/updates on progress make me.

    Found an ideal gaming/workspace setup...

    I chopped up a cheap twin size memory foam bed topper for my cheap chair. It now rivals my $1,000 chair at work. Funny, I couldn't get a stool but they were fine with that chair selection...

    Screw it, I'm going Wii U

    I was interested in the WiiU for Monster hunter, then they killed monster hunter multiplayer on the Wii to force you to the WiiU. So I decided to skip the console. I'm tired of asshattery from these companies. 'It's a business' is not an excuse to spit on your customer base. There's a reason goodwill from indy and small developers is so well recieved.
