  1. I hope you have accessible screws then. I have the 1080 strix and I was pretty disappointed when I started painting it white and saw I could only remove the shroud easily.
  2. Depends on the manufacturer and the card. MSI would cry warranty void if you so much as look at your backplate funny. GB would review it on a case by case basis... I'm guessing a simple signature wouldn't be a problem. ASUS claim they don't give a damn and you can paint it pink and glue fluffy antlers on it if you so wish. ASUS have started doing another sneaky trick with their later iterations, however. They will still claim that you can do whatever you like with the backplate, but they make the screw heads for it only accessible from the face of the PCB, which means you have to take off the cooler to get at it, which means you have to unscrew the sticker screw, which DOES void the warranty. Warranty-wise, your best bet will be to write to the manufacturer's support and ask them what the case is for your specific card. From a technical stand point, they're not even for rigidity anymore, just looks. You won't have any technical issues from removing the backplate.
  3. It's right there in the Org info thread, yet almost every org member who joins tells me they found it by accident. So let there be no more confusion. That's where the UOLTT Star Citien org hangs out, not on Spectrum. If you are not an org member, but just interested in Star Citizen and/or tech and gaming, you are also welcome to join us.

  4. Was Derek Smart right?

    Well can you be a bit more specific? Was he right bout what exactly? Was he right about his initial claim during his first falling out with Chris Roberts, that Star Citizen will never be anything more than the hangar module and a bunch of pretty videos? Well no, I guess he wasn't. Was he right about it all being a complete scam, designed only to take our money and go buy an island somewhere? Eeeeh, I suppose that would make them the stupidest scammers in history, because they've been spending all that money into making a game instead. Their tax returns are publicly accessible. Was he right when he said that 2.0 is "nothing but a tech demo video" and we would never be able to do anything but dogfoghting in arena commander? I guess he was wrong on that one too. Was he right 2 years ago when he said they are completely out of money and he has it "on good authority" that they will be filing for bankrupcy within a month? No, I suppose he miscalculated that one a teeny bit too. Was he right about procedurally generated real-size planets not being a viable concept and that they would never be able to make anything like that? Eh... no. Was he right about... dammit to hell... let me think really really hard.... Oh I HAVE IT! Was he right about Chris Roberts and Sandi Gardiner being married and keeping it semi-secret in order to avoid controversy? YES hell fekin' YES!!! He was RIGHT! He was right about that, guys! Those sneaky bastards! Last time I was so disturbed was during episode 1482 of "As the world turns"! ==================================================== In all seriousness, tho. Star Citizen has development problems. It is an extremely ambitious project. They have had to readjust the scale of it several times, from the initial 2 million dollar stretch goal. Have they bitten more than they can chew? It's still possible, I don't believe so myself, but I admit that it remains to be seen. That said, don't make the mistake of paying much attention to Derek Smart. The man has mental problems. He is salty that his own game "Line of Defense" did not receive the same backing and has been in perpetual development longer than Star Citizen. Jealousy over this drove the man to spend unhealthy amounts of his time stalking the Star Citizen project, instead of pursuing his own. It is a sad story. I don't really want to hate on him too much, I rather feel pity for the man. Anywhoo, OP I noticed you mentioned that you have played the Star Citizen alpha. So I take it you know what it offers. Not much yet, admittedly. But let me leave you with some footage from Derek Smart's game 'Line Of Defense' which, by his own claim, is being "ripped off" by Star Citizen. Maybe you'll enjoy playing it. It's still in early access. ;-p DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT STAR CITIZEN FOOTAGE!!! JUST IN CASE ANYONE DIDN'T READ THE WALL OF TEXT FOR CONTEXT.
  5. Best advert/trailer video for Star Ciizen?

    ^ This is the best one so far IMO. Of course if you really want to drive in the point that it IS after all still a buggy alpha, but that doesn't mean one can't have fun in it, you can always go with the LTT Conglomerate's poop reels:
  6. Project Eden Recruitment

    He'll fit in nicely. ^^
  7. Interesting points? They are conjecture on falsehoods. Again - taking loans against tax credit is common practice, it is one of the tools of running a business, not a "red flag". Putting collateral against it is also common practice and required by most banks. AND the collateral in question was not "ALL their assets", this one was an outright lie - the collateral are SQ 42 assets and Star Citizen assets are expressly excluded. This is as pointless as arguing with the man himself... unless I am... O_o In any case, have a good day.
  8. Funny you should say that last bit. Because the paragraph above it is a pretty much verbatim rendition of what Derek Smart says happened, as opposed to what actually happened. What a curious coincidence. What actually happened is they took out a loan in the amount of a tax rebate that they have coming later on in the year, so they can operate with the money before they receive the tax rebate. It is common practice for businesses. And guess what - it is common practice for stable businesses only... because, as Derek actually knows very well from personal experience, no bank would give such a loan to a business that is unlikely to pay it back and whose assets are unviable, as they are not insane. Furthermore - what was put up as collateral was the assets of Squadron 42, not "basically all of it", in fact the collateral agreement expressly excludes Star Citizen. Furthermore, the reason for doing this is NOT that they don't have money, but that the loan is in GBP, which would allow them not to have to convert their USD funds into GBP in order to pay their UK expenses, as currently the exchange rates are very unfavorable. So worst case scenario - the world economy collapses and CIG don't receive a legally guaranteed rebate entitlement, in which case, they either pay the sum back to the bank from their own money OR the bank owns the first episode of a single player game within the SC lore. But yeah, I guess the Derek Smart version of events that is touted by his zealots sounds much more fun. Not that you are one of those or anything...
  9. PC booting up too fast! HELP?

    Well there you go. What you are seeing is hybrid sleep, not a full shut down. It turns off all the fans and drives and retains your session in RAM after writing a copy of it on the drive in case of power loss. It's perfectly ok to use it like that and seeing as you have a HDD, probably preferable to full shut down.
  10. PC booting up too fast! HELP?

    It's probably entering some sort of hybrid sleep mode. Check the windows power options, there was a setting somewhere that controls what the 'shut down' button actually does. But really if everything is working fine, just leave it be and enjoy.
  11. Been flying mine for over 3 years now. I have no idea what you guys are on about. ^^
  12. Crosswinds are currently the best value for money, yes.

  14. What is star citizen

    Yeah, sort of. Plus life sized, semi-procedurally generated, persistent planets and moons that you can fully explore and build outposts and settlements on, which are also seeded with persistent and dynamic missions and landing zones. Plus huge ass multi-crew ships and stations. We already, regularly get lost in the smaller big ships that are currently available in the alpha.
  15. What is star citizen

    I have known the man for years now. When I say he is being sarcastic, it's not a guess... usually. As for you, Sir, I am exhausted of arguing the same points over and over. Believe what you wish. I will only say this - the original schedule was for a 2 million game. We are now making a 150 million game. Some people have trouble understanding what this entails and get refunds. Most don't.
