    WoW: Classic

    We have forums , teamspeak and Discord. If people wanna give it a go, I am sure someone can make a poll if we have enough to get started, then set up forum section, etc. All it takes is stepping up!

    Should go Alliance since most played Horde before
  3. It will be back! Hope AMD getsvtheir shit together soon with GPUs so we can have some nice competition again. It was awesome to buy two midrange cards for less than top card price and get more performance. Guess only good for the Ern and not great for AMD and nVidia
  4. If you are not using the lower drivecage, I would stick it there, to further increase positive pressure, perhaps.
  5. You sure that back fan gives you any benefit?
  6. You will always get a little dust even with positive air pressure. The fters let's things in and vortexes will suck dust through other openings. Just blow it with air, or be a baller like me, risk it with a vaccum!
  7. There are still 4 case fans and the 4 radiator fans, just 3 less case fans. It's the Enthoo Primo. Can't buy a 2080ti since it performs the same as these fuckers. Would suck to pay 1300 euro for nothing at all hehe.
  8. When running SLI, especially with aftermarket coolers that are not of the blower design, the top card tends to run very hot, unless you have an ATX-E style motherboard with more x16 PCI-e slots so you can space the cards out further. This means, that even using cards with great coolers, like the Asus Strix series, the cards hit thermal throttling, pretty much no matter what you do - The air between the cards simply will not move enough. I have fought against that by adding fans on the side that with brute force pushes the air in between the cards ever since I first started using SLI in 2006. In 2017(?), NZXT released an update to their solution on how to mount AIO coolers on graphics cards, the NZXT Kraken G12 (Update from the G10) with an improved mounting solution. I was gonna do this back then, but since lazy, I never bothered. Thanks to Sinful gifting me a gift card at a computer store, I went for it. I was able to keep the backplate and the strengthening bracket. Idle temp went down a few degrees in a cold system, and load temps went from 83c (Throttle max) to ~49-50c. Since there is no residual heat in the case anymore, every component is now cooler, and I removed 3 case fans. Only downside currently, is that I am using stock fans, both for the GPU bracket as well as the radiators, and the 92mm fans on the gpu brackets run at 100% all the time. Yeah, there is no build log. Here is the result on my Asus 980TI Strix cards:

    Grim Dawn

    Chimp made me buy this game so we could play coop. The game was in early access. We bought it. Expensive, like $49. Downloaded it, waited, Installed it. Ok Chimp, time to play! Game did not yet have multiplayer enabled....

    Warhammer Online

    I was uncertain if the demise of the Ove was greatly exaggerated or not. It would seem to me that creatures all around the cosmos should still fear for their lives.

    Those are buddies of Rellic I believe

    My colleague is co-owner of Tugg, and he claims it's the best, but he continously refuses to fly the office down to prove himself, so we are settling with Barrels here, and each time we go, we claim it's better, so. Anyhow, I shall tell him you guys like the place!
  14. I would presume turning on HTTPS enabled PWA automatically and the forum software has the bad taste to spam with that request instead of making it a toggle function on notification settings.

    The Division 2

    Division one was not uber, but I am in for any of them every fourth february 29th
  16. Hey there fyra! I am unsure if DAoC holds all that much interest, at least not for myself - The really hardcore fans of DAoC that would be interested, seems to be cleaning their house and shopping groceries instead of roaming the realms of Midgard with a fellow Troll, unfortunately. However, I didn't even know this existed, so thanks a lot for sharing!
  17. One of my all time favorite games. Keeping expectations very very low for this one!

    Fallout 76

    Widescreen Fixer can also help with those games to adjust UI, HUD etc in ultrawide or surround/eyefinity
  21. Firefox is much slower on javascript nowadays sadly. Dev tools also better in chrome now. Edge is as fast as chrome lately so that is actually a great alternative
  22. I need 3 new monitors, not just 1!
  23. You no longer need to run fullscreen to take advantage of SLI, at least not on Nvidia cards. The difference between window/fullscreen is just a few FPS - Since I still run my triple monitor setup, I need the extra card if I want to run "Ultra" and keep a steady 60 fps. Since they switched to AFR mode for like, all games nowadays, SLI and Crossfire works pretty much across the board and gives you ~90% increase. Downside is of course massive heat and poor heat removal from between the cards, especially if you don't run reference design. There is a huge downside though, because it's very difficult to upgrade - If I want to upgrade now, I need more than a 2080ti, since that is equivalent to what I run now. Same with the surround monitor thing, if I want to upgrade these aging Dell IPS 1080 monitors, I have to buy 3 new ones and well, considering the amount of games I play nowadays, it's very hard to justify. That being said, unless I increase the amount of pixels by buying new monitors with higher resolutions, these GPUs will last me quite a while longer, as long as they don't break.
