The blue pill is definitely not Nvidia.

I find this stupid, as well as half the comments in this thread, especially the AMD users calling Nvidia user Nvidiots...grow the fuck up.
As for the Game24 Event i hope nothing will happen, and if AMD users come i just hope only the Mature AMD people will go and not some hipster jackass jumping around shouting.

Some seem to take seriously .. This is shows amd is not a boring company .
Immature ? What , adults can't have fun too ? Just because they work on a big company doesn't mean they can't have fun anymore . It's actually a health sign , they didn't turn into zombie yet .
This is all about fair play , the rival team is coming to your presentation , how good is that ? They are fucking getting more people on the rival team event , how is that offensive , it's actually a good thing for nvidia .

More crowd the better. Doesn't matter red, green or blue, we all share the same dream... photorealism boob physics. Oh wait..

Why should it be ruined?
Just because I would wear AMD shirt on NVIDIA event doesent mean that I am not interrested in what are they showcasting and therefore I am trying to ruin it for them...
Assuming that immature individuals will stay at home.
smallfat reacted to dwitty in An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...
HAHA. Let me summarize for you:
Corsair originally said late July for k70 with red switches and late august for everything else. That obviously didn't happen.
The K70 RGB with Cherry MX Red switches is now available for order if that is what you want. Waste no more time! Go buy it now!
If, instead, you are waiting on the K70 with Brown/Blue switches or the K95 in any color of switches, you will have to wait until "Late September" (Source: Corsair's Facebook page). I'm not sure about the release date for the K65... I don't recall reading an estimate for that one.
Prices (In the USA) are:
K65: $149.99 (based on a dollar amount written on a display behind the K65 in a video showing the ten-key-less board)
If you want to know the prices outside of the USA... you'll have to check the thread, I didn't really pay much attention to that part heh heh (sorry)
For more information you can check out this blog entry from Corsair James.
On the page you will also find a download link for the software you'll need to program the RGB keyboards. I downloaded it but haven't used it yet... waiting on the K95 release !! (Blue switches)

Did any of you all see the pictures posted by Corsair today? K65(TKL) RGB confirmed!
smallfat reacted to mattmonkey24 in An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...
hey guys, i can't wait for the K95 RGB to have an announced release date, i really want it with brown switches but despite what the one Corsair representative said i really don't think they are going to do anything but MX reds
also to the people who think they didn't change anything, on their facebook a Corsair representative claimed they found the problem and fixed it
smallfat reacted to TugginMyPudah in An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...
Because when they say Cherry Red, Blue, Brown, etc... Cherry is the Key designer. If they just refer to MX switches then they are a generic or Company made. Roccat for example makes their own Mechanical MX switch. Corsain on the other hand is buying it from the company that makes the best switch aka Cherry. As for The QA and Manufacturing process that was a guess. For all I know it could be a interface issue with a Corsair part or the Panasonic part or the software.
smallfat reacted to Blackserg in An Update From Corsair About The RGB Keyboards...
For me personally, I don't really care when it's releases. But of course i'd like to get it sooner than later.
One thing that bothers me though, is that a couple of you on this thread keeps saying something like; "The fancy lighting is just crap and you are all idiots by buying it. It'll grow old in a month or two."
Will the fancy lighting, with ripples and all that good stuff, grow old on me in a couple of month? Probably. But for me it's more about the estetics of the keyboard.
- First of all, I like the looks of K70 (which is the one i'm going to buy).
- Second. The fact that I can light up different zones/keys of the keyboard with different colors, makes it a 'must have' for me, since i'm almost always gaming in complete darkness. It makes it easier to find the specific key i'm looking for in the dark. This functionality can, somewhat, be achieved by getting the Steelseries Apex, but i just don't like the looks, nor the layout of the board.
- Third. Sometimes, not always, but sometimes i find myself wishing i had RGB-lighting, to go match up with the coloring of the desktop-background, things on my table, lighting in the chasis, or other stuff in my office.
Well.. The bottom line: For those of you who don't like the RGB-lighting, or light in keyboards at all, fine by me. But stay out of my head.

smallfat reacted to DaMagicalManiac in Pentium @ 4.6ghz on stock cooler (Devil's Canyon FTW!)
This overclockable Pentium G3258 packs quite a punch for a price of $70.
Apparently it can also render frames just as well on BF4 as the 4690k and the 4790k, although I somehow doubt their review and you should also note that the k series parts are at stock speeds.
Unfortunately this Pentium does require a Z97 mobo (maybe a Z87 with an updated firmware) but if this is as good as the two articles above we may be able to shave some money instead of going with an entry-level i5.
Hopefully Linus (although Slick does the benchmarking) makes a video on this processor.
(also, nudge nudge, where's our 4690k and 4790k benchmarks Mr Linus?????)
EDIT: Moar benchmarks!
It did surprisingly well, alot better than I would have thought on Crysis 3 as it was only 2 frames behind the 4690k on water overclocked @ 4.6ghz.
However, unfortunately yet not surprisingly, the dual-core suffered in battlefield 4 due to the game demanding 4 threads.
Maybe (and hopefully) it's just a bottleneck because the other benchmarks for BF4 were tested on a gtx 770, this was tested on a 780 ti.
