  1. now my AC is making coil whine, lord help

  2. uhhh crap, uh I've been known for being really (really) bad at keeping promises for requests, unless you want to wait for months with the slight offchance that I'll actually be bummed to do it, uhhh
  3. This is my first time trying to do some sort of animation/motion graphic with after effects, so uh yeah, not much else to mention here... http://zippy.gfycat.com/AridBlondDoe.webm I also made an extended version that looks a bit "eh" I spent most of the time actually drawing the assets for it in photoshop lol I'm surprised how easy it is to get the hang of after effects, I literally only watched half of a tutorial and then I started working on this I think the best part is that they loop pretty well lol It's obviously not perfect, so what can I improve on in the future? I know the case ejections have a weird trajectory and the "fast" shots look pretty wonky, so what else is there?
  4. I'd take the 970 in this case; more overclocking headroom with the lower power consumption and heat output
  5. I use handbrake to convert it to some other more compressed format
  6. The 970 beats the 390 in 1080p, but at higher resolutions the 390 may slightly beat it with double the VRAM it has. The 970 also consumes less power and is slightly quieter. You can overclock with software like Afterburner to adjust the freq and fan curves and stuff.
  7. And they're gonna name the whole series after me! Thanks guys! /s
  9. I got it to work I removed my 970 from its pcie slot and left it somewhere, then I booted with integrated graphics and went into clover's bootloader I didn't add any custom boot flags, I just left it to its defaults and proceeded to install Yosemite. Everything worked fine from there. But now I'm having conundrums with installing nvidia's web drivers. I've got OSX 10.10.3, and I've downloaded 3 versions in an attempt to see if they work: 343.01.01a16, 343.01.02f01 and 346.01.02f01 .pkg files, and none of them will work. When i try running them it says something along the lines of "this osx version 10.10.3 is not supported, check nvidia's support for more info" and stuff, so which web driver version works?
  10. -x would cause it to have a kernel panic and reboot into clover again, I haven't tried -f yet, will try that. -v does the verbose mode which is all that text output, but then it boots into an apple screen when its done; which is where im stuck at now
  11. After a few months of laziness, I attempted to try hackintoshing again. My previous thread here http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/238087-ive-tried-an-infinite-amount-of-boot-flags-for-my-hackintosh/had a reply that I forgot to see, so I tried it once again. This time I'm using clover instead of chameleon, and I've made more progress compared to last time. This time I found that just using -v nv_disable=1 got me the furthest, but now the furthest I get is after all the verbose text whizzes by, it boots into a black screen with an apple logo, with an empty loading bar and I have access to a spinning beach ball mouse. Here's a pic http://i.imgur.com/eCa1v6bh.jpgI let it sit there for half an hour, and nothing. The bar hasn't moved and all I can do is move around a spinning beach ball. Am I doing something wrong or am I supposed to wait longer? I've followed tonymacx86's Yosemite clover tutorial also put my DSDT and SSDT .aml files in too. My specs should be in my sig. Oh yea, I've unplugged all my other drives with windows and stuff, so its just one drive plugged in with Ubuntu on it, which I plan to install osx onto that drive (typed this on my phone so idk if the formattings all messed up)
