  1. WOW it's been forever since I was last on here so may as well post some build updates with my newer machines Main rig, this is the main machine I use at home: 2700x CPU 32gb 3200mhz CAS14 RAM Gigabyte X570 Gaming Ultra Motherboard Gigabyte RTX 2080 OC GPU Soundblaster XFi Titanium Fatal1ty sound card 512gb 970 Evo Plus M2 SSD, 270gb Crucial SSD, 3tb HDD Seasonic Prime Platinum 760watt PSU Old NZXT Tempest case Secondary rig, I keep this one at my parents house it's made out of mostly old parts with exception of the GPU and c
  2. Just has a ice blue to it and the Snow Leopard is my favorite animal, the desktop wallpaper and mouse pad are Snow Leopard pics. Also it's my favorite animal so my main PC is named after it.
  3. Definitely on the list of things to do to fix the GPU sag, also that Snow Leopard background is just one I found online that I pulled from a google search it fits the build and my mouse pad I have on that desk, also it's my favorite animal.
  4. I can probably get something to move the ITX PC onto but the smaller ATX PC on the white desk the desk has a set of drawers down the area under where the PC sits so it's impossible to center it out. Those 2 setups anyway aren't really setups I do more then play the PC on if I need space I'll either use the main PC desk or move somewhere else.
  5. I only reason I have that case for the Snow Leopard PC is because it's my favorite one I like how the outside looks just the inside is dated in the way it looks. Also thanks I try to keep stuff as clean as possible.
  6. So it's been a while since I last posted so why not start with some build updates: Snow Leopard PC First is my main rig: I completely redid it switching from X370 to X99 for some more IO and it was the only board I had with the ability to control all 6 fans the case has. I also got a newish (it was never used) NZXT Tempest case for the build as I just fell in love with how the case looked from the outside although the internals of the case are a bit dated with the grey metal look. Specs: i7 5820k at 4GHZ at stock voltage Asus X99 TUF Sabertooth Motherboard
  7. I don't think the AMD APUs and GPUs are compatible with the DRM that they have for 4k netflix from what I looked up you need either a Nvidia 10xx series GPU with 3+gb of VRAM or a Intel Kabylake or higher chip
  8. I want to build a HTPC for streaming 4k Netflix and YouTube. I would usually make the part list myself but this is turning out to be extremely difficult to do. My budget is max $300 to do this and it has to be small enough to fit on the TV stand or next to the TV stand. Also it would need to have WiFi too and the router is a newer 802.11 AC dualband router so a good WiFi card would have plenty of bandwidth to play with. What do you guys think I should do????
  9. Are they selling out with Intel for this?????? PS I'm just joking
  10. Wow my profile page is so out of date, gonna have to update it lol

  11. Well I have a i5 kabylake system and I feel it's going to last me quite a few years because think of how long dual cores lasted with a few of the very popular games still being playable on a dual core so think on how that will happen with quad cores they are so popular dating back on the intel consumer platform to the Core 2 Quads (which still can play games with medium to high settings with a lower midrange GPU) and due to the popularity developers will take that into mind just as they did with dual cores not too long ago. EDIT: PS developers are still just started intergrating su
  12. New update to my setup: New Desk, New Case, and the old Alienware X51 which was my first actual gaming PC back a few years ago is back on the desk to look good. I can easily switch between the 2 machines by pushing a button on a KVM located under the desk and hitting the input selection button on my monitor. The new case is a Cooler Master HAF X and the thing is literally as big as it looks only sitting a few inches shorter then the desk.
  13. So I want to rebuild my LAN party PC as it's a older PC and ever since I got a new MSI laptop with a i7 7700HQ and GTX 1060 6gb in it the PC has been unused as it's running on a Haswell i5 and a R7 370 4gb. Here;s the part list to it https://pcpartpicker.com/user/SuperM4Tanker/saved/2tTYJx. I'm still debating weather I should upgrade it or just rebuild it into a Sleeper PC in a old ivybridge MATX HP case I have that I got from the flea market in which the motherboard inside was dead. If I do reuse some old parts from the old machine I would probably reuse the GPU, CPU, RAM, SSD, and/or HDD as
