  1. I've been in a tough situation recently so I haven't had much time to browse the forum. I've been gone for quite sometime and unfortuntly haven't been able to view @FloRolf's amazing twitch streams. 


    I recently got a gtx 1060 6gb though which is nice :D 

    1. FloRolf


      Lmao, you didn't miss anything, I haven't streamed since and nothing spectacular happend on the forums. Welcome back tho :P

  2. Serious question: @firelighter487 do you like k95 platinum?

      @firelighter487 Have you seen how many keyboards I have lol? 

      I don't need anymore! I actually just want to know your opinon on it since a buddy of mine actually wants one and you have one. 

            Firstly, do you have the blue, red, brown or cherry mx speed varient of the keyboard? 

    3. Twilight


      i have the version with brown switches. 


      i will say this though, i've only ever owned 2 mechanical keyboards. this one and a K65 with red switches, so i don't know a lot about them. 

    4. InMiseryWeSeekPancakes


       Alright, well thanks for your feedback anyway :)  


  3. Also, that 500gb m.2 ssd isn't really worth it if your gonna get a 1tb sata ssd, there's only noticeable performance in certain applications. Either get a 500gb m.2 ssd and those hard drives or a 1tb sata ( which I recommend ) and those hdd's.
  4. 1. It would be better to go quad channel if your motherboard supports it 2.If you can, liquid. 3. Pcpartpicker.com can determine your wattage for all the listed componuts, all you have to simply have to do is make your build and it will give you the needed credentials however right of the bat it looks like your system will probably draw 800w when playing games or doing any intensive work so I would get a 900w psu or even 1000w if you plan on doing sli in the future. Remember to not cheap out on psu's though, get a good 80+ certified one. You can cheap out on all other hardware but if you cheap out on a noname chinese psu you'll fucking blow up your system. 4. UPS's are optional but literally anything will work online, just get one that can support 1000/900w and isn't shit. 5. Nzxt cases are nice, thermaltake h21, fractal design define c, and Corsair anniversary editon are all really nice cases ( this is 100% subjective ).
  5. Yeah, I've been using that setup for ages and it runs completely fine, on idle it probably draws just as much as a high end system on idle, and regular usage is basically fine, no proprietary wall outlet's, a standard 750/650w 80+ psu works like a charm. I even became generous and I put a gtx 280 1 gb and overclocked it to 770mhz and 1340mhz memory clock, that shows to prove how much headroom I had for overclocking despite the "MASSIVE power consumption", if your running a much bigger server such as something like Linus's or even bigger than quite frankly, power consumption would probably be an issue. You might think thermal's might be an issue than right? Nope... . I literally only have 1 200m fan and my 2 cpu cooler's. I mean it's perfect for what I do, I have it sitting 24/7 since I have my own website hoster, my own email client, I have dozens of game servers and my own nas and I have a backup for all the pc's I have in my house, I have several hypervisors and a bunch of other stuff
  6. quick question: you don't actually use msx right?

      like i said, i feel so sorry for you... 


      i've got 100mbit/s up and down (real world speed about 12mb/s), and sometimes even that feels slow when i'm downloading stuff, watching twitch and gaming at the same time, while other people are in the house doing stuff too... 


      i was on vacation last summer and there i had a 60 kb/s connection most of the time, sometimes a little faster, and yeah... 144p youtube with stuttering... if i had that as my home internet i would cry...

               When I use the internet it's usually forum browsing and online classes though. Majority of things I do on my computer is offline work, thankfully though I only have one other person living with me and even at that, there could be noone using the wifi and already all the bandwidth is taken up. And this may sound like it doesn't help the already undeniably disasterious problem but I have a ikev2/ipsec protocol vpn and it only slows down the internet a little bit more even though it's already bad but I need it because I totally don't do pirating or anything remotely bad :( 

    4. InMiseryWeSeekPancakes


      And i also like privacy to the fullest extent... 

  8. InMiseryWeSeekPancakes


    That looks delicious
  9. But you would probably want to spend that extra 100 bucks on ram, also some tasks could be valued with some cpu backbone but @Electronics Wizardy has a good point, I would spend alot of that money on ram.
  10. You can get an Xeon x5660 ( 6c/12t ) for around $20.00 USD / 17.63 Euro, It uses one of the classic lga 1366 socket motherboards and those are also additionally cheap. I made this build not to long ago... CPU: x2 Intel Xeon x5660 @4.0GHZ ( overclocked ) RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHZ NON ECC RAM MB: SuperMicro X8DTL-IF Dual LGA1366 ( you can find them everywhere on ebay and there ridiculously cheap ) GPU: Onboard IGPU STORAGE: 3TB Western Digital Blue 7200rpm, 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm COOLING: Noctua NH-D9DX i4 3U 92mm SSO2 This cost me around $400.00 USD and if you ever find yourself needing a gpu for whatever reason you have 100 dollars to spare for such, Linux would probably be good for a server, I personally use kali but it's your choice.
  11.            Long time ago, I got this macbook from 2008 and it still holds up surprisingly well. 

    At least for emulation, forum browsing, and very, very, light gaming. If its an apple product any older than 2010 I refuse to buy it. 

    But I put an 120gb ssd inside this sucker and 4gbs of ddr2 600 mhz ram and it works like a charm. 


         I'm dual booting an blackarch linux on it and just standard macos and its alright. For the price, the screen is actually fucking delicious to look at. I hate macbooks but this screen is just god awfully gorgeous for the price range, not better than my 2 crt's but its still nice. 


                 One problem...

          fantastic fuck nuggets what lobotomized thundercunt thought it was a good idea to add 2 usb ports?  

    It gets the job done, despite its best efforts I plan on getting something new in the near future. Its still fine considering I got it for $50.00 USD though. 


  12.       Y'know, I'm not really a sorta watch kinda guy. I don't like hats, glasses, necklaces, or any additional, unnecessary wearables of any sort. But I swear to fuck, this nixie watch is the fucking bomb. 



    except for this...1833698101_ScreenShot2018-11-22at2_54_19PM.png.5bf6019af8f0d0aaca12d73ff879abb0.png...





    yeah no. 

  13. was going to get a i7 2600k as my main pc but I'm just going to use my server with my xeon I guess for now and plop in my gtx 280 later into it.

              Besides, the price to performance ratio on the i7 2600k compared to the xeon chip is actually impressive. 

      You can't find an i7 2600k ( 4c/8t ) for under $100 bucks anywhere while an Intel Xeon x5660 ( 6c/12t ) is easily found for under $30.00 USD. 

                Currently I'm benchmarking my server running cinebench, passmark, 3dmark and also overclocking it and i've gotten it to go to 4.0GHZ which is pretty nice considering the base clock for this sucker is 2.80GHZ which shows that this processor is very diverse and spacious regarding clock speed. And for $30 bucks maximum as for the price of the cpu this is easily remarkable.

      I will always be a fan of the x58 xeons

  14. intel xeon x5660 is a 6c/12t processor for $20? 







    Jesus shit... guess I'm returning that i7 2600k I was going to get.

      At certain times, the i7 8700k dominates the x5660 but in games and even triple a games it works like a charm and for $20?  

                  Seriously, can you actually find a better deal than that? Would be nice though if the motherboards were a wee tad bit less expensive. 

    3. imreloadin


      You have me thinking about getting two of them, a dual socket 1366 mobo, and some RAM to do some virtualization experiments. Looks like I can get those with 64GB of RAM for about $350. Not bad for a 12c/24t server xD

    4. InMiseryWeSeekPancakes


      @imreloadin haha lol I actually already have a server running that processor! It works like a charm! 

              But It's really neat to having your own server for website hosting without having to pay monthy/ yearly fees to keep up with whatever hoster your using and I actually make websites for people as a side job and I have tens of dozens of websites to host.


              Also as in added benefit I can run a shitwad of game servers and my own email client for fun ;) 





         CPU: ( obviously ) x2 Intel Xeon x5660 @4.0GHZ ( overclocked )

         RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHZ NON ECC RAM

         MB: SuperMicro X8DTL-IF Dual LGA1366 ( you can find them everywhere on ebay and there ridiculously cheap )  

         GPU: Onboard IGPU 

         STORAGE: 3TB Western Digital Blue 7200rpm, 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm

         COOLING: Noctua NH-D9DX i4 3U 92mm SSO2


          That entire build cost me $432.56 according to ebay.


                       So I think its a pretty good bet and if you want a graphics card well you can go for even a 1080ti and it won't bottleneck, this processor is a fucking beast for the cheap. I plan on getting a 1060 so I can do some hardcore rendering or cad since my main pc that holds a i5 2400 and a gtx 560 isn't going to cut it and it doesn't even scrape the base for 3d modeling. 

              Right now though it is my main pc since I sold my former main pc for gaming due to financial issues with college. 

      I was previously going to switch to a i7 2600k but I think i'll just stick with my server lol.
