#2162877 Official OCC 2017 Christmas Contest

Happy holidays everyone! Good luck!




#2150205 Guys we need to talk...

Posted by FUZi0N on 17 December 2015 - 04:59 PM

I just buy the $1000 CPU and $1000 GPU and I'm good. I don't need to buy a $100 used CPU and a used $200 GPU and overclock them to have them perform similarly in 95% of games.

 

 Big money up in here.

#2149639 Skylake or...?

Posted by FUZi0N on 03 December 2015 - 01:07 AM

Skylake is the right move. I've noticed over the last few generations of i5/i7s that there prices are still about the same. You're only going to save a little bit of money getting the previous generation. Why not pay a little bit more, get the newest architecture and now DDR4 support.

 

I only mentioned the H75 because it's compatible with almost all cases with a rear mounted 120/140mm fan and it's decent price point. Skylake CPUs do not come with a OEM heatsink. The cooling system is all up to you and which case you'll be using. If your case has 240/280mm fan mounts on the top, spring for one of those. Any cooler compatible with 1150/1155/1156 will work on 1151.

 

970 is the way to go IMO. I bought my 980 when it was the flagship card and personally, I don't think the slight performance gain over a 970 justified spending $200 more. 

 

I use a 240GB SSD as my OS drive plus a few of my popular games. The 1TB mechanical drives are still a great choice for more storage. I use the Western Digital blue for all my movies, show and media stuff. My Western Digital black is for mostly games.

 

Regarding the EVGA power supplies, the B2, G2 and P2 EVGA power supplies are made by Super Flower which is apparently renowned for there power supplies. Corsair and Seasonic are still great choices but be aware of their budget lineups like the Corsair CX series or EVGAs NEX.




#2136946 My backyard snow accumulation amounts in Boston

Posted by FUZi0N on 16 February 2015 - 10:07 AM

What's funny is here in Chattanooga TN, they call for snow 2-3 days in advance and this is what the store shelves look like (pic was taken yesterday). The projected snow is now rain haha.

Got this on sale at Green Man Gaming a few days ago thinking it was for Steam. Unfortunately the key is only redeemable on Origin. I'm giving it away so just post in this thread to enter and I'll pick a random post at 2p est. 3/21. Good luck :)
