    obsoletepotato reacted to Memories4K in Why fold?   
    Yeah, basically.
    If you need some karma points, folding is a good way to try and give to others.
    Your entire existence is selfish, let's not try to drive forum members off from doing a good thing even if they're doing it not for the best reasons.
    I donate blood because i get off on being a sado-masochistic hematolagniac, not because i believe i'm some superhero saving the exact number of lives the pamphlet tells me i'm saving.

    obsoletepotato reacted to nicklmg in Zotac ZBOX MAGNUS EN970 Giveaway   
    Interested in that sweet & sexy new all-in-one from Zotac, the ZBOX MAGNUS EN970, that Linus checked out about a month ago? Then you're in luck, because we are giving that badboy away!
    If you haven't seen the video yet (firstly, shame on you for not watching our videos daily JK of course, no judgement here...) you can check that out below:

    But if you're more of a spec sheet guy or gal, click here to see the full breakdown.
    Please keep in mind that this is a barebones kit. It does not include RAM, storage, or an OS, so the potential winner must be prepared to provide that on their own.
    Alright, that's all well and good... now how do I WIN!?

    Entry is very simple - just comment below letting us and Zotac know what makes you interested in the ZBOX when compared to a traditional desktop. And, if you're feeling appreciative, head on over to their Twitter, give them a follow, and say thanks for providing this awesome giveaway for the community!
    The one winner will be selected at random on November 25, 2015.
    One entry (comment) per user.

    This is a worldwide giveaway with no age restrictions.

    The winner will be contacted by me here on the forum. Disregard any messages, emails, Tweets etc. you receive from anyone other than this account here on the forum.

    Good luck all!!
    EDIT: We have decided to extend this giveaway until November 25. Make sure you enter before then!

    EDIT2: The winner is @willskinny
    EDIT3: First winner did not respond, the new winner is @JHyunS06

    Heaven Society Steam Group

    Main Heaven Society Thread
    What is the Heaven Society Steam Group?
    It is a Steam group created for members of Heaven Society, so that we can arrange gaming sessions easier without filling up the main thread on the forum. 
    Who can join the Steam group?
    The Steam group was created by Heaven Society, but it is open for all members of the forum that wish to play some games with some friendly people. Just be aware that there will likely be a lot of talk about anime during the games. 
    How do you join the Steam group?
    The group is now public! So all you have to do is visit the Steam Group page and click join, no need for invites. 
    How will we talk when gaming?
    @MyInnerFred has kindly provided a TeamSpeak for us to use. Forum members are free to use the TeamSpeak server as a base of operations, it's not limited to just Heaven Society. 
    What games will we play?
    Anything you want. We don't have any set games that the group will play, although games like BF4 are likely going to be played a lot. You can play a group game of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, we're not going to judge you (well, maybe a little). If you want to play a game with other members, it's probably best to make a post in this thread asking if anyone wishes to join you. 
    Will there be any events for this group?
    I am considering doing some giveaways every month or so, where one or more games are selected to be given away to members of the group. If you would like to see game giveaways for the group, let me know!
    Steam and Origin names/IDs
    I'm going to be linking people's accounts in the thread so that members that want to play together can find each other's accounts much easier. Post a link to your Steam account or post your Origin ID in this thread if you want to be added to the list and you're not already on there. If you want me to remove you from either list for any reason, just send me a message on the forum and I'll remove it ASAP,

    Switched the PSU to Antec TP-650C 80 Plus Gold and PSU cover, also flip the PSU fan around so it can get fresh air (I don't want all the hot exhaust from the card to go through the PSU)
    Decided not to make a backplate for the card bc with the 1150 core 1500 mem OC the board gets quite hot and I can only work with acrylic
    // Damn squeezing all that cables to the tiny other side panel is so frustrating and cable-ties-consuming



    Hope you enjoy

    This is what you have to do anyways, actually. After upgrading from 8.1 to 10 you can then do another clean install of 10, skip the key entry and it should activate itself.

    Hi all!
    Just thought I would post these on here to see what people think. The design has been submitted just so you guys know.
    But feedback is always important and good for future projects.
    (I did get feedback from my work team and engineer friends)
    Note - Only the single has been submitted

    That bypasses the restriction on the command line. I've tried it on two school systems and it works every time, and it's undetectable unless someone is actually  watching you.

    ZOTAC sent us their two beastly editions of the GTX 970. These cards look pretty darn cool in our opinion, but do they overclock as well as their flashy design would suggest?


    ZOTAC has been kind enough to offer you guys, the awesome Linus Tech Tips community, the exclusive chance to win their brand new top of the line ZOTAC GTX 980 AMP! Extreme graphics card!
    So how do you enter? Just comment below in this thread and let us know what you like about the ZOTAC AMP! Omega and AMP! Extreme, or the new GTX 900 series in general.

    This is a world-wide giveaway and will run from October 17, 2014 until October 24, 2014 at 4pm PDT. The winner will be drawn live on the October 24 WAN Show using a random number generator and will be contacted by me through the forum. If you receive a message anywhere other than the forum claiming that you are the winner (through YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter) please IGNORE that message as it is NOT from us.

    Thanks in advance for your comments, and thanks to ZOTAC for sponsoring this giveaway!
