    AMD Stepping up their game!

    I wonder what the performance difference between an i5 and an i7 will be. Maybe 8 threaded performance might finally be worth it for gamers?

    How to force game to render on single GPU

    Alright, so, I just found another cheap GTX 580 matrix, and decided it'd be cheaper to buy a second MATRIX than it would be to buy a 780, but now I'm wondering. I only want to run games that NEED SLI performance in SLI (I'll turn it on and off as the situation requires). But if I want to run games with SLI off, I only went the games to render on my second GPU because it isn't choking on the cooler of the other GPU. It looks a little bit like this. Does anyone know how to force it via Nvidia control panel or something of the sort?

    Sony 'actively pushing' for 60FPS/1080p with PS4

    60 FPS please. Please. SERIOUSLY. The difference between 30 and 60 is night and day ._.

    IGN - The lack of Female Diversity in Gaming

    Realistically, a lot of countries don't allow women in their armies, and even if they do, not special forces or anything of the sort. A few of my female friends that also game pretty hardcore have told me that it doesn't really make them less enthused about the game, but they do have issues with the fact that the industry is rather woman-shunning, and that it's absurdly difficult to get a female protag in some games. For instance, I have heard that the dev of "Remember Me" had to BEG the publisher to make a female character the protag. What the fuck, why is that so risky? o_o

    Nixeus NX-VUE27 27" IPS Monitor Unboxing

    I don't buy TN panel monitors full stop. I want vivid colours and great angles.

    Decent 23-24inch 1080p monitor

    The Dell U2312HM. A great IPS panel with pivot and a USB hub integrated. DP, DVI and VGA. It has some pretty sweet colours.

    Worst Tech mistake you have ever made?

    Once, my computer didn't give a video signal. OR SO I THOUGHT. After troubleshooting errything, taking out the mobo, re-applying thermal paste, nudging the cpu a bit, taking apart my entire PC - I realised my monitor was set to HDMI instead of DVI.

    Sorry for not being on much - have a free magicka

    Okay so since there was like absolutely nobody here, I'm going to do something else, how does this sound: 3 days long, I'm putting up a quiz, and in those three days, people can answer the quiz. The people that have the answer right the most, get ranked higher in the RNG. (which I'll use to calculate the winner). So no first come first serve nonsense. I'll scrounge up some gamecodes for steam and origin to give away. I'll be posting this in the "general" area tomorrow. See you guys there!

    Sorry for not being on much - have a free magicka

    Well apparently since nobody wants magicka apart from the guy that wants magicka, it'll go to the guy that wants magicka. Add me on steam, icemaster_1, screenname is Fidel Castro (don't ask) and post your steam username here too. (the game is a steam gift, yasee)
  11. Hey guys, as you might know I'm a mod here - it says under my name. I haven't been on much and I'm really sorry. Things have been pretty bad for me lately and I've also been really really badly ill, family business, yada yada yada, not very professional, I know, so let me try and get on you guys' good side again. So here, I'll check this thread tomorrow, and I'll randomly select (with an RNG, not because I know one of you guys) give you a copy of magicka. And if like a ton of people join in I might just get some origin/steam codes of some other games and give those away randomly in this topic too. There, you can now claim to have limited power over my disposable income.

    Is air cooling sufficient for the most part?

    Is air cooling sufficient for the most part?

    Air cooling is by far sufficient. Watercooling is a more enthusiast grade type of cooling, but if you want to overclock a 3570K, you're going to need a new cooler for the CPU, as you might be aware. The stock cooler is... kind of pathetic. And radiators/hoses don't tend to leak unless you manhandle them extremely. Custom liquid cooling takes a lot of time, money and effort to set up. You could go for pre-done watercoolers like the H100i, or just go for a good double tower double fan aircooling heatsink. It all depends on what you've got space for, but on air, you should easily be able to reach 4.5 ghz without a lot of noise.
