  1. I was looking at the Samsung CHG90 but it seems to have pretty bad reviews from Amazon so I'm not sure if it's good or if it sucks, but for $1500 I expect to get a good product that's why I'm trying to do the crap out of my research before buying.
  2. Hi Guys! I've recently been looking at super ultra-wide displays on Amazon.com and I can't seem to find any one that doesn't have pretty bad reviews so far. Is anyone using one of these and can you speak to it being worth buying? I'd really like to have one of these but at the same time I'm trying to do my due dilligence for research. Can anyone recommend a good super ultra-wide for me please? As always thanks for information!
  3. I did have mods running, I run a ton of mods for Fallout 4, but I went under the performance category and they have some pretty good stuff in there. Using several of those mods, I'm able to basically get my game to run everywhere at 115 FPS smoothly. The mods, basically remove shadows and grass from the game, but everything else is running at ultra, and it changes some of the meshes, but it has made a drastic difference. I do run LOOT
  4. Well I'm also a bit on the more dedicated side of building which can't possibly be expected of everyone. I have no girlfriend wife or kids, my life orbits around my tech and I've gone so far as both moving states and becoming debt free for the sake of my build. There are different levels of importance though. Still, if I weren't at the level I'm at now on my builds I'd have to question myself pretty heavily.
  5. Thanks for the info guys I really appreciate getting a better understanding of this when considering future system upgrades.
  6. I was sitting there today playing Fallout 4 because I've gone from getting 40-60 FPS in the Boston Common to now 115 at my max frames basically all the time with my hardware upgrade I've been working on. And as I was sitting there I began to wonder really how hardware affects gaming. You have a motherboard, processor, gpu, but what I'm curious to know about is how these things really affect gaming performance. Without getting into overclocking per say, how does for example a CPU affect a game performance like Fallout4? I'm using an Intel i9-9900KS. It's an 8 core 16 HT 5.0 GHz on all cores CPU
  7. Right now the fan controller is mounted to the front of the case with bolts and nuts. The magnets would just hold tight enough to the front of the case that it wouldn't move, in theory.
  8. I'm going to have to take a break from building for a while. I need to change my living situation which means I need to sell my current place. Here I'm only getting 25 mbps down when I could be getting 1000 mbps for free. I can't change ISP because AT&T is all we can get. Somehow......... 25mbps is the max speed they will offer us. I will tell you right now.... AT&T is the WORST customer service provider, internet service provider, and in my opinion of the worst companies on the planet to do any business with. I do NOT recommend or represent them in relation to any of my builds, I will be ditching any and all services with them ASAP. It's just gonna cost me $2k a month for a while before I can do so...  


    Wave Broadband is the way to go. They are legit and arguably the best ISP I can think of. I will be going over to them when I get in their area.

      Change your situation :). Life is a battle you're either winning or losing and I choose to control my own victory, it's how I've gotten this far and I plan to keep going. Set a goal in your mind and put it there and don't let it out until its reality. Only way you can ever lose is to stop. 

  9. Yes I will be happy to identify where the fan controller will be going via images. It is going in the drive bay.
  10. Velcro would work because it would still allow the fan controller to be detached, although it might be hard to find strong enough velcro. I'm hoping to find magnets basically strong enough that it would be as if they were screwed down when attached to the case, having to pull quite hard to remove them, but that's why I'm looking to buy many. Since I'm using nothing but M.2 SSDs in my build, these would be far away from any drives, and any other moving parts for that matter. Velcro would definitely be something to consider if I could find some that is REALLY strong. I did try screws (or at leas
  11. Yeah I was thinking about that originally but I want to make sure that should I ever need to I can still remove the part, like if it dies, or if I ever find something better that I want to use. I suppose you could still do that with double-sided tape, but I want to make sure it doesn't leave any sticky residue behind. If this doesn't end up working I may end up doing that anyway.
  12. So, I'm thinking of trying something in my build and I wanted to get some opinions about it. I had a hell of a time getting the first 6-channel fan controller I bought to fit in my computer case. I actually had to use a dremmel tool to mod my case with the use of bolts to get the panel to work and to hold right. I'm about to switch from my Thermaltake Commander F6 to my Lamptron 30W FC-8 fan controller. Instead of going through the fiasco of what I had to do the first time around with this part, I was thinking of trying to buy some strong adhesive-backed magnets, mount them on the fan controll
  13. First of all, I know many people like to run their internal air cooling for silence. Yesterday I was trying out some of the RGB fans I got for my monster and I ran into a number of hiccups. The first fan I tried was a 120mm and only a single color, red. I installed it, and it's supposed to run at about 1200-2000 rpm. I couldn't get it up passed 1000 at least according to my fan controller, which it was hooked to (Tt Commander F6). Plus, it was only a single color, and not changeable. It barely moves any air if it is running at 1000 RPM. On the other hand, for internal lighting, I used the two light bars that came as part of this kit (click this kit to see it), and then I started thinking. One of the main issues I have with RGB fans is that yes they are RGB, but to be a programmable color they usually need a proprietary internal fan hub which means they can't be controlled with an external facing fan controller for speed adjustment. The RGB fans I've tried seem to almost always barely move any air. So, getting to the point, with the light-bar kit I referenced before, I can use those two light bars only from that kit, while using Noctua 3000RPM 140mm case fans for the rest of my internal air cooling so that I still have both light and performance. Those two light bars are fully programmable in many many ways and have a little controller that comes with them, they work very, very well. I feel like this is the perfect setup of light to performance ratio............ for me. 

  14. Yesterday I cleaned up a lot of internal wiring for the build with cable comes I ordered and received. Still needs work but it is definitely moving in the right direction.
