    I'm Open to Suggestions

    Well, here's what happened: Intel Core i7-6700K, EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, Fractal Design Define R5 (Black) - System Build - PCPartPicker I'm avoiding the Samsung 950 due to concerns about heat and throttling, but just today on Ye Olde Nu Egg, the Intel 750 400GB card is only $250 USD... I keep...

    I'm Open to Suggestions

    Ok, so, today I accidentally may have loaded up a small cart with a few particular pieces of a possible computer and... Well, short story is they should be here Tuesday. I paid $825 USD, with the potential for $65 in rebates. (We'll see.) I'm waiting on the i7 6700k to reappear in-stock. If...

    Sanity Check, Mate

    Sweet, Sweet Progress Thank you for pointing out the Fractal R5 and that ASUS Hero MB, Caldezar. Definitely looking at that now. With the Fractal R5 in mind, RAID SSD's is definitely a possibility, but for the config I'm heading towards it would likely be impossible for more than 2 drives in...

    My friend's "NEW" build

    They bulldozed a kid's playground. Tragedy.

    Sanity Check, Mate

    I'm still alive, if anyone here remembers me. It was a close thing for a while, being a worker zombie and all. My last computer fried again (it was named Dragnipur, may it rest in pieces), and I lost the will to do CPR on it anymore. First place I thought to turn was here. Alright, so, I need...

    EVGA - Always getting in the way...

    For Future Reference The CM V6 GT does, in fact, fit on the good ol' EVGA Classified 760. It very lightly touches that absurdly tall heatsink I was worried about in the first place, though. Just the bottom three fins are in contact with it, and as soon as I am sure that I don't want to call...

    zombie proof house

    I want that house. Looks great, I love the style, but mostly... I want that drawbridge! :biggrin:

    Rants etc.....

    Hold out, Charlie! You can do it! :haha: I almost broke my car in half the other day, while dropping the back end out of it. I've had my excitement for the month.

    EVGA - Always getting in the way...

    I'd forgotten about that review. Thanks. And yes, I think I can see one corner of the motherboard gasping for air around all the stuff on it in that picture, now. :biggrin: Alrighty. So I've thrown numbers at a piece of paper with a pencil, gotten something that looked like a tye-dye splatter...

    Chimp Challenge 2011: We won the Jaded Monkey! Congrats to ALL CC folders!

    I won't be able to have my computer up and running, is all. Currently borrowing a friend's internet and comp just to write this, actually. Don't have anything at my place yet. Man, did I pick a bad time to move. Heh.

    Stargate Universe

    Can't help but go with SKY on this one... I got hooked on SGU with the way they introduced the ship the first time. I love the idea behind the entire story. I haven't seen too many episodes though, so I can't say much. I'll end up watching all of it sooner or later. At the moment I'm already...

    Chimp Challenge 2011: We won the Jaded Monkey! Congrats to ALL CC folders!

    Aww, looks like I'm too late to the party. I really wanted to start folding when I got the e-mail about this competition. It was enough to draw me back to this site after my rather large hiatus. :biggrin: Oh well. I'll catch the next one for sure.

    EVGA - Always getting in the way...

    Dangtx, I looked into the H70, but I'd rather not spend quite that much. I think I'll stick to air for now, and perhaps eventually a full W/C will make its way into my case, as originally planned. As far as dropping the 295's for a 580 or two... that just needs a little bit of time, is all...

    EVGA - Always getting in the way...

    Very nice, sir! You've just added the TRUE to my list of possibles. Is it touching that heatsink, there? Can't tell from the pic, but it looks like it's trying to eat it. How well is it cooling, sucking its air off of the RAM like that? I have to say, I wish I could afford what I'm seeing in...

    God-Like 30"

    Well, To End the Thread... I went with it, back in May 2009. So, now, almost precisely two years later, I can say one thing for sure about the LG 30": It's beautiful. I've never found a single dead pixel. No bleeding around the edges. You can view this thing from almost any angle with no...
