    How badly does this suck?

    Sure it is! This is just a temp hold over while I keep familiarizing myself with LN2 and overclocking in depth
  2. So my little sister decided to throw this out and I still have no idea what this is from after a couple years, this ring a bell with anyone?

      Mechwarrior Timber wolf?

      Maybe not Mechwarrior game merch but It is definitely from Battletech... look at the clan symbol on it...

    How badly does this suck?

    So I am an ultra budget guy and I'm trying to get a really cheap rad I can just dunk in some ice and clock higher with, so I hit up my favourite budget shop and found this: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F113243792598 Problem is I've no idea as to how good this would be as a rad, as I've never liquid kooled before (I mean the mediocre part in my name when I put it there). Thoughts?

    Der8auer's phase change cooling update?

    I've been curious about this too, maybe we can spam him until he updates himself?

    how to wreck your parrents tv?

    Firstly I hope I never have a kid that acts like this, it's very wasteful and just so stupid on so many levels Second, if you aren't smart enough to figure something like this out on your own I have another reason to not want a child like you Third, why would you expect a tech forum to help you with this? I'd suggest a different forum site but Im scared what else you'd see Fourth, if you're gonna do it anyways do NOT mess with the outlet. You. WILL. DIE. Edit: As for your cop-out either ask yourself or alternatively stop being so ungrateful (crazy idea)

    @Finwillwin I dig it

    Looking for lyrically heavy bands

    Yea that was my reaction too, but slightly more memey
  8. Is there anywhere where the design process was documented for this case? I'd love to see the kinds of things that happen behind the scenes of designing a case, also wouldn't mind seeing Necere's side project

    looking for graphics card

    Typically after getting answer you use the 'Mark as Solved' to let others know it's all good, some of us (myself included) tend to skip over alot of the posts on a thread if there isn't any answer or the key word we're going to suggest and doing that tells us it's all set
  10. That's what I was thinking about too but I wasn't sure if it reached that level or not, had to poke to see if you guys had the same thought/tested it
  11. Interesting, I guess it's a tad late now but would you have done something like this: It looked like an SSD would be a tight squeeze and while you couldn't get the NVMe speeds if you used something like this or this that might be okay. I dunno the knowledge there's a unused panel of space is getting to me more than it should so I wanted to pick your brain on the design decisions (For context I'm looking into becoming a case design guy so this kinda thing interests me alot) Edit: Maybe not that exact placement or number as the current SSD mount would restrict it
  12. Out of curiosity what does the air pocket do? Like how does it benefit the cooling? Wouldn't not having it and gaining the extra space have been the better choice?

    Looking for lyrically heavy bands

    They sound good but it's more of something I'd jam to rather than feel deep emotion towards. Just something about the tempo and volume of the music @Quadriplegic @BigDamn (Also I read it as Devil-oof for a sec then listened to the song and there was a very dinstinct 'blah!' and I almost laughed, my metal friends do that as a joke all the time) @valdyrgramr Def a nice sound to them and I can see it but not really my vibe, wouldn't change channels if it was on the radio or something though @Dissitesuxba11s Def dig your taste in music, kinda scared to listen to My Chemical Romance as I already have a few Blink-182 albums and I don't want to be too cringey (still prob gon listen anyways ;-;) @Techicolors Gon check yours out in abit, had alot of stuff to do and a large-ish vol of suggestons. From the description it sounds good though
  14. So far I'm rather surprised at the results for the polls,

    EVGA is killing the GPU poll, with Asus trailing behind yet on the motherboard poll Asus is about 1/3 while EVGA is trailed behind. And overall MSI is getting no love at ALL, very surprising. Wait! There is exactly one vote for MSI total between both boths so I guess their MoBos aren't as unloved

    1. Minibois


      For mobos, I would never recommend MSI, just in general. Of course they have better and worse motherboards, but they typically focus more on looks then actually making a good mobo.

      Typically worse VRMs and memory support is not great either (can only speak on the AMD side of things).


      Asus and Gigabyte and the way to go for motherboards, IMO (at least on the AMD, I don't care much for Intel boards).


      Also, this forum is filled with diehard fans of EVGA and while I typically don't like people praising a brand for no reason other than being a specific brand; I think with EVGA it's actually somewhat deserved. On a GPU there is less to do wrong though; considering they don't have to worry about a UEFI BIOS, boot devices, weird combinations of hardware, etc. that a motherboard manufacturer would have to focus on.
