  1. Mechanical Keyboard Club!

    Ok, so I have "click modded" my Dell AT101W keyboard. The leaf spring inside the Alps Black switches have notches that prevent the clicking sound from happening, so by snapping them off, the keyboard gains the click sound back. It sounds way better now. Here are some more pics of the keyboard all cleaned up and ready for prime time use and gaming. I'd post a video of the clicking sound, but it seems videos aren't allowed? I'd prefer moderator approval to post a video of the sound this keyboard makes.
  2. Phone app controller for PS4

    Eh, that really wouldn't be comfortable, would it? No physical feel of the buttons, no tactile nature, no nothing. I couldn't imagine how many times I'd be hitting the wrong thing on screen, let alone having no shoulder buttons to even use. Anyway, this is as close as you'll get: https://www.howtogeek.com/258819/how-to-control-your-playstation-4-with-your-smartphone/
  3. Mechanical Keyboard Club!

    Thanks, it's a hell of a beast, 10 years old and still playing modern games.
  4. Mechanical Keyboard Club!

    These are my mechanical keyboards. A Daskeyboard with Cherry MX Blue's, a Dell AT101W (which I'm currently using) which uses Alps Black's, and an Alton, which uses some odd thing similar to the Apple II, but has no brand on it (and feels a bit on the rougher side so I don't use it as much). I also have an IBM Model M Space Saver, which is down for the count, it needs a bolt mod, and repair to the membrane, but that's not an entirely mechanical design.
  5. Gpu fans dont spin

    Wait a minute, you bought something and they won't let you RMA it? Issue a charge back. EDIT: Actually, wait, how long have you had this card, you didn't specify.
  6. Some things simply can't go past their rated speeds. Let's start with the GPU temps?
  7. But can it run Crysis?

    Haha, who knows. Might be worth saving up for and giving a shot.
  8. But can it run Crysis?

    Finally put my computer in the sig to the test after all these years, and fired up Crysis. Turns out, it does it rather well actually. -link removed- Sometimes having a reverse hackintosh has its perks.
  9. AMD Crossfire Performance

    No no no, some games went DOWN to 5fps, not up. lol
  10. Perhaps I'm just expecting too much from Crossfire, or mGPU (whatever they want to call it now). But I have noticed that since enabling Crossfire, either some games gain just a mere 10fps, while others are now more choppy than ever that it feels like 5 fps (where it was 20fps before). Am I just expecting from too much from multiple GPUs? I knew it wouldn't be a 2x increase, but this is crazy. About the only thing that has increased a close 2x increase was 3dmark.
  11. Show off your setup!

    Yep. I was "that guy" who was running Linux on my Mac while working on OS X Lion through Mavericks, before I ultimately quit, and went back to Linux, before now settling on Windows 10, as I just want to game now. Btw, here's some new updated pictures. Had to slightly modify my crossfire bridge to fix, without cutting through traces. It was a success.
  12. Show off your setup!

    It's a 2008 Mac Pro, which has been turned into a reverse hackintosh. It runs Windows 10. (My signature shows the setup). I used to work for Apple, I don't need this for OS X development anymore.
  13. RAM this days

    And here I am with 32GB RAM on my desktop, and 24GB on my Thinkpad, but I do video editing so it's a given.
  14. I can't really measure that, it technically has more than one 12v rail on it. But I do have dual 7850's, dual X5482s, both overclocked, 8 sticks of 4GB DDR2 FB/ECC RAM, and 4 hard drives, 3 of which are 54k rpm and one of them are 72k. (Oh, and 3 fans, not including the one behind the PSU which forces air out.). I'd say it's gonna have a pretty high draw at that point, especially harpertowns at 125w TDP.
  15. Well the PSU does have a sticker that says this: (Not my pic but it's the same PSU).
