    knight_40k got a reaction from OmegaStorm in 9.1 Surround - Is it any good?   
    As others have said, the problem with 9.1 is there is zero recorded content for it. Also, anything past 5.1 you need to have the appropriate space/room layout for proper/ideal speaker placement.
     
    With 9.1/11.1, basically how it works is the receiver takes a 5.1/7.1 audio track and separates it in such a way to give content to the additional channels. The added front height and front wide speakers when used together for 11.1 greatly increases the front sound stage for a more immerse experience. I have an 11.1 home theater and can tell you from experience it does a darn good job!
     
    You would be better to slowly build a 5.1 system with quality components rather than an all-in-one solution like that one. Proper bookshelf or tower speakers will have far superior sound quality and a better range of frequencies. Even if you have to start with 2.0/2.1, you will probably be more satisfied with the overall experience compared to any 5.1/7.1/9.1 cheap-o box system.
     
    By the way, you never specified a budget.

    I didn't say all CM PSU's were junk, just the models I happen to have. Now, I haven't had any issue either but apparently their output is overrated by about 150-200W. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eXtreme-Power-Plus-600-W-Power-Supply-Review/1034/9

    I would do the GPU first, your CPU is still good.

    knight_40k got a reaction from lieder1987 in Where can i sell Destiny 2 key from Geforce?   
    Selling will be tricky unless you can sell to a friend because you will need to activate the game code in Geforce Experience which checks your hardware (graphics card) to make sure you have the card installed that the game was bundled with. From there you will need your friend to come over and log in to steam on your system (or if they trust you just get the login and password) so it thinks your computer is attached to that steam account. Once the game is activated in steam that owner is free to play on any computer.
     
    So unless the person you are selling the code to also has the same graphics card but didn't get the bundle, it will be hard to sell IMO.

    Newegg will send you an email that contains the steps on how to go about redeeming the game along with a code of some sort. Sometimes it can take a couple days/weeks before you receive it though.

    knight_40k got a reaction from 8uhbbhu8 in The Pokémon Thread   
    I was feeling nostalgic around the time Pokemon Go was released. I hadn't seen a Pokemon game or watched the TV show since middle school. My younger brother had a DMG (the original Game Boy) but I never really wanted to play it, though I used to like watching him play. So last year I decided to pick up 2 DMG's on Craigslist with Pokemon Red/Blue so I could trade Pokemon and collect all 151 without a gameshark. I later bought a GBC (Game Boy Color) with the cable link adapter and Pokemon Crystal/Silver/Gold which I had never played as a kid. I beat them all, now I picked up Zelda Oracle of Seasons/Ages since I absolutely loved Legend of Zelda on the NES.

    Thanks to everyone for the reply's.
     
    I got him to agree to $150 CAD down from $200 for the non-k 3770 making it hard to justify spending $300 for the K version unless, how much of a difference would an OC make in CPU bound games like Total War Warhammer? Should I just get the non-K?

    knight_40k got a reaction from Himommies in New PC Build. Is it an overkill?   
    How is an i5 overkill?
     
    it looks fairly balanced imo. But these days Ryzen 1600 is the way to go if you are looking at an i5 price point.

    Get a GTX 1080, another 8GB of RAM, and If you can find a used 3770K you should have a decent system for a while.

    I was looking at both of those cases myself but I chose the P400S TG because the look suited me better.
     
    I literally received it and moved my current rig into it last night and I must say it looks quite nice.

    knight_40k got a reaction from flibberdipper in Post your home theater   
    Here's mine. These pics were taken about a year ago. it's 7.1 with 'DSX wide' implementation, meaning no 'rear' speakers, I use front wide instead. The angle of the pics don't show it too well but the speakers are spaced properly and it does deliver a fully immerse surround experience. I'm wired for full 11 channel surround, but still saving up for my new receiver, hopefully this Christmas.
     
    EDIT: I got the 11 channel receiver I was waiting for (Denon AVR-4311CI) and a final pair of matching speakers to complete my set. Needless to say I am fully enjoying it.
     

     
    I'm well aware I'm seated higher than ideal listening position, this is because I wanted better line of sight to the TV. I am working on risers for speakers to add more height and give them a little tilt.

     
    Just to the right a little ways is my other side surround speaker mounted to the wall that unfortunately didn't make it into the picture as I was trying to show the actual room layout due to awkward shaped room.

     
    This is my old HTPC case (on top), I replaced it with a Silverstone GD08 so it's all black and matching but I haven't taken any recent pics.

     
    I did the custom wiring myself with the help of my dad and brother.

     
    DSX height speakers are not active at the moment, still waiting for new receiver so I can run full 11 channel. For now they are display ornaments.

     
    I had signs made to showcase some of my theatres features.
