  1. So, since I have Wild Liger HMM assembly.

    Next up: Shadow Fox Marking Plus Ver. HMM

    Manage to nab this bugger during the pre-orders considering the level of demand around this one's re-release.



  2. Wild Liger HMM done.  First time doing a Zoid model.  Went fairly well.  Nice model to say the least.

    I will note: be mindful of the hip connecting to the main body, it kinda likes to unhook a tad; otherwise, so far, not much issue with all the other parts that snap together.


    Plan to later panel line the bugger.


  3. I been messing a tad with Ryzen Master. So far found a fairly decent starting point that restrains the 5800X done to around a 75-80W pull through it and still allows it to boost to around 4.2-4.3GHz across all its cores. Considering it smacks my 1950X in single thread at just that setting, I think I will tweak around that. Actually, came close to darn spitting distance to my 1950X in multi-threading, but note: that is a benchmark software. I have to later throw the abuse of a 4K UHD re-encode with H.265 at it to see how it hangs with my 1950X. If wanting to know the cooling bei
  4. Oh, I wish right now it stay down in the mid 70Cs. Right now from my one hammer run, it was hitting 90C and throttling itself to 4.2GHz. Which don't seem right, so tuning is in order before I do my next round of stress runs. Going to see if I can aim to around 4.5-4.6GHz without it trying to cook itself. Still not upset with the chip, plenty snappy for the daily and keeping the Titan X Pascal plenty feed. When you say, AMD OCing, you referring to Ryzen Master software, yes? Though, note, I'm in Florida and weather here is already lovely hitting past 90F/32C. I
  5. Probably depends on what the whole game is. Personally myself, I tend to play slower games or top downs by habit. Hmmm, maybe if in VR, that would be a bit interesting game mechanic there. As I do find Beat Saber fun, and it takes in account how you hit the incoming note blocks to calculate out the points (angle, speed, travel distance before and after the hit).
  6. Something is definitely not right. I have same CPU but a 2070 Max-Q and get a 11. This with a G5 5500. Probably one area to look into, check Nvidia settings and add in vr.exe and set OpenGL and other settings to point at the dedicated GPU not the iGPU. That could be the possible issue going on. Along with have the Alienware software up as well and check your power/performance settings there as well.
  7. I have actually found a perm fix finally to this very, very odd issue. So, the full out deal with this. Had to use HDMI first to get past beeps. No beeps with HDMI cable. Install OS, still get beeps if I use DP, but after at least one reboot. OS will show up. Found out that older GPUs can have an old DP firmware that for some reason on newer CPU/mobo combos don't play nice. Found an DP firmware update for my GPU. Beeps are now gone. ... Motherboard is now complaing about the CPU fan. ....I think this motherboard hates me. Both
  8. Hmmmmmm, maybe Dead Space then. The cutter in that game can take off limbs. That probably the closest I can think of to that concept in an actual game. Though, best I can recall the cutter is restricted to just doing limbs.
  9. Only thing came to mind is some of the very old Ultimas. Not fancy, but I sure remember Underworld and that damn rat and cheese on the ground, and only having my fist to smack that bloody thing (there is a sword you can find if you look around first). Or, run in nab that cheese, boogy the hell out, and smack the door close and hope the rat didn't get past the door. Don't remember targeting specific parts on an enemy though. Do remember having to hunt for each piece of armor though. But yeah, Fallout lets you do more targeted spots at enemies. Though, the newer ones let that be
  10. Almost done with this Wild Liger.



  11. Well, now my case been call a space station.




  12. There are methods to get around even that. DNS/proxies filtering out requests. Note: This requires using sideloaded software since Google is not fond of such or VPNing behind a network with such filters in place. Or, if one is serious, you strip out the stock Android, load a custom ROM, and don't use the GApps.
  13. To have the Google Apps requires this: AdID There are methods to weaken down the Ad targeting. You have to dig into the settings but there is a setting to opt-out of personalized ads. Along with resetting that AdID ever so often to randomize it up.
  14. Since I got this taken apart at the moment.


    May as well just shove as much of my drives into the bay area.




    Da old Crucial (this hails all the way back when I had a 2500K)

    And, an old Sammy 840 Pro 256GB (it was a pretty penny back then too)



    May later find a better way to get all my fans hookup.

    Also, those are all 10+ year old GT AP-15s, they still a kicking.



    I tend to keep stuff until it dies, or I sell it off.

  15. Might get this bugger up today.


    After I get finish fighting to load an OS onto it.


    And then, later get longer cables for PSU on the other side, so I can get my 1950X back up and re-work it into server/encoding duty.

    Yes, that is a drive in the front.  One of the few I know of that can be firmware flashed (long since done) for ripping UHDs.  I have another I have to re-check if I can flash the firmware as well.

      Think this case been nickname from server rack, roller rack, behemoth, etc.  I lost count all the names folks I have given it.


      But yeah, it is quite big.  Still sourcing out a few more parts for front ports, more drive bays, etc.

      Need a few more power cables and a SATA expansion cards.
