But really, it's not about me. There are tons of people that are clearly beginners and trying their best. There's no "It looks good but" or someone posts WIP pics and they just comment on things that aren't done yet rather than what is brought to attention. It's as if people assume their job is to look for the tiniest defect, some of which can be completely subjective (EK circles for example), and only comment on that.
Compare comments here to a place like the ModZoo. You get constructive criticism without the derision.
It's all over OCN as of late. Personal attacks and ridiculous comments abound.
I want to clarify, I think that he is talking about the fact that I posted a picture and that everyone who felt the need to comment (which, of course, is great, I love feedback!) were of the opinion that being told once that the Raystorm block was upside down was not enough, and that, if they said it again, I might somehow fix it and not be lazy about it. I don't care that they told me it was upside down, but that they told me it was upside down five times. I love OCN, but there are people that do a sort of "hate," kind of like on the subreddit "gamingpc" they ask you to justify why you bought the parts that you did, as if your buying them was not justification enough. With this rig I know that buying dual cards is not as good as single because FPS isn't what matters, frame latency is what matters, and a 4GB 680 is going to be plenty for 2560x1400 gaming. I kind of wish I had waited for Titans to be out, but oh well, doesn't matter. I was also asked why I only bought SSDs, and why I bought three sizes of SSDs. I don't like hard drives, they make noise, and I don't like noise. I know that I can't hear the noise very well when I have my headphones on, but they still make noise, and they still take up huge amounts of room. I got SSDs because they are a) faster, b) smaller, and c) silent. It's stuff like that that makes some people on OCN look like annoying buttheads. I know that he was trying to help, but it just turned out as him being rude, in my opinion.
I think it's upside down. Not sure though, maybe if you tell him ONE MORE TIME he'll get it.
Also, hot damn! Finally! Someone else doing white and red things! I love those white BP fittings, and I love that you used white acetal tops! Are you going to be able to use them on your graphics card(s)? Looks beautiful so far, can't wait to see what else you have in store.
