DONT DO IT!!!!

my ex-gf has so much of my stuff, including a 5ghz i5 rig that I'll never be seeing again.

Lets be honest here, you're keyboards are nicer to touch than she is lol.
(just a joke, nothing personal )

OMG I would kill her if she stole my actual rig, well the one I am on is only at 4.5 ghz, but it not yet watercooled and it a haswell chip so it isn't the best for pushing past that especially on air, because of that I eventually just brought it down to 4.2. And on same days I kind of wish my leopold 660c was obliged to marry me because lets see the facts. treats me right, makes love in sweet ways to my finger tips, brings a smile to my face when waking in the morning, doesn't complain or nag, doesn't hog the bed with a mixture of knees and elbow blows, and finally doesn't glare at me when she thinks I am not looking. Anyways I wouldn't take that as a bad joke so no worries man I definitely do have a sense of humor, and no matter how weird it is...it is there. thumb.gif

Anyways what kind of rig are you using now if she has a rig clocked at 5 ghz I do not see how you do much better than that, and speaking of rigs..ugh there is so much little things I have to do, and I mean I just need 3 things mostly with the actual pc. Is either to cut out the some nice big holes on the interior side panel for better cable management and if not that then purchase a case I like more aesthetically and that already has nicer cable management( either fractal design, corsair has some nice ones, lian-li, and or antec probably will be one of these). I currently have a 922 haf case and the reason I bought it was because it has great reviews and features, and it happened to be on sale when I was looking best bang for my buck. Now though I need better fans and to probably get liquid cooling up in there just because I am running to gpu's and a bunch of other crap. I was getting cpu and chassis fan error message on boot up for a bit. Any suggestions?

My girl has a rig because she is a big WOW player, like for the past 8 years she has been playing pretty consistently. It is pretty mediocre at best, and it needs seriously upgrades once I put the pc together on paper then I will make upgrades that I can install now to help her out, and when it is time just completely build her a new one. I mean her pc right now is good enough to raid with but she is going to need better when the new expansion comes out. I am thinking on getting her a decent haswell build because she has no plans to overclock, and it would be a solid cpu/motherboard combo. Then adding in either my gpu's and getting myself one single one.(which to find one that matches close to performance of my 2 will be hard since the 7970ghz ed is now 440 when it was 310 two months ago) I might going with a 4 gb 770 or a 280x 3gb. That is if I end up doing that for myself.

I find your post oddly soothing.
People on this, and many other forums generally don't understand how often the spec requirement for that game goes up... I mean, a lot of it is the terribly broken way they re-implemented the LUA engine after 1.xx patches, just before BC and Vanilla NAXX. That, and the horrible shader and shadows implementations. But still, I went from 60fps on a Radeon 9200 to dipping in FPS with a GTX 670... I quit playing though, thank god.

Yeah it is crazy going from having 90+ fps on a 1080 monitor with one gpu, but then I went to ultra wide resolution 2560x1080 and granted I could see my fps dropping but then with a second card it is too demanding from how it was. I also have stopped playing just couldn't keep my interest as it once did. I am playing a mixture of games from torchlight2, to ff XIV, to bioshock infinite, counterstrike go, and a ton of others. I play all these games on high to ultra graphics just fine. Damn you wow

I know this is late, but I spent a total of $0 on Mechanical keyboards. Thank you OCN for giving me this awesome Ducky <3.

My friend just got his first Mechanical Keyboard and spent $200. It's a Roccat Ryos Mk Pro. It is pretty dang nice. biggrin.gif

Why did OCN give you a Ducky mechanical keyboard for free? and where was I when these kind of things were happening? lol. Really though that is pretty sweet, what kind of ducky did they end up giving you and with which switch does it have? I currently just got my new keycaps from Elitekeyboards.com today, I ended up getting blank red ones to go on my Leopold fc660c topre keyboard. It has some odd layout on the bottom row but I was able to put all new keys on it by winging it with some of the longer modifying key caps. I will post a pick later today when I wake up. It is easily my favorite keyboard I have used yet. Period.

The amount of text walls in this thread has increased lately.

My only conclusion is that our new peripherals editor inexplicably ninja edits random posts to make them lengthy, poorly formatted, and hard to read.

Ordered some tools today to open and perform the bolt mod on my TKL Model M. Stoked.
