Fair enough, but don't go saying that "real games" don't have CPU bottlenecks. Then again, calling DCS a "game" would probably piss off the community. It's a hardcore flight sim through and through, unless you're using a Flaming Cliffs-level aircraft (simplified controls and systems) or Combined Arms. That's the rivet counters for you... Anyway, if some of my preferred titles weren't so CPU-intensive, I wouldn't have the itch to overclock the hell outta Haswell. I just...
 Fire up PlanetSide 2 or DCS World and tell me they're not largely CPU-bottlenecked with a straight face... Then again, maybe the former's much more optimized compared to the last time I played. Who knows...
Well, guess that means you're about to horribly, grisly murder, oh, I don't know, a whopping 90% minimum of the Star Citizen community on the use of that one term. "PU" for "Persistent Universe" makes for a horrible-sounding initialism.   Between CH and Saitek? CH every time, if you can afford both. Like I keep saying, it's not too uncommon to find Fighterstick/Pro Throttle/Pro Pedals setups for well under $200 shipped, if you don't mind buying used. I even saw a set...
Oh, okay. Note that there's another "Nameless" in the Star Citizen community, no relation; that's why I append random letters to distinguish myself from all the other Namelesses on the Internet. There are a surprising amount, trust me. Most of my posts in the forums are in the Hardware section; I rarely venture outside there. I should note, I built my new computer last year in anticipation of Arena Commander's release more than anything! My Super Hornet and...
I have yet to play Arena Commander MULTIPLAYER, but I did stream it on Twitch shortly after it was released and they pushed through the maps. That predates the multiplayer update they just pushed out.You didn't see any people impersonating me-or, worse, hijacking my accounts-out there, did you?
As far as smartphones go, I'm just waiting for Samsung to announce the inevitable Galaxy Note IV before the end of the year so I can step up to that when my contract expires in December. I normally wouldn't be itching to replace my Galaxy S III that quickly, but I really want that Wacom digitizer!  Bit high? No kidding! I used Prolimatech PK-3, which is an absolute pain to spread out (though I didn't use the "bag and boil in water" trick some suggested to soften it). It's...
I decided to monitor my temps again, and my 4770K...it's now idling closer to 38-40c, 79c under LinX 0.6.5 load, and ambient's around 25c. All on a custom water-cooling loop with a 360mm rad and at stock M6H clocks (3.9 GHz because it defaults to constant Turbo Boost speed). What gives? I know ambients are much higher in the summer, but something really doesn't seem right about this. As it stands, I'm gonna get thermally walled again trying to push past 4.4 GHz! Perhaps...
I think it's the best so far. Not everyone agrees with me; we all have different ears.With a nice external DAC like that, you can just get a cheap card like an X-Fi Titanium (non-HD) for the DSP effects and run S/PDIF to the DACMagic. It's pretty easy to set up.
 Given how I can't even push my 4770K to 4.5 GHz without cooking it with the Vcore required for absolute LinX 0.6.5 and Prime95 28.1 stability on a custom water-cooling loop, this is somewhat tempting. Maybe I should just delid my existing chip. How tempting it is will largely depend on whether or not Micro Center pulls another "i7 for $200" sale on or just before Black Friday. Too bad I don't work at a place that qualifies for Intel Retail Edge, otherwise I wouldn't even...
I remember seeing those boards all over the place in the late 1990s! If Microsoft didn't cheap out with rubber domes, I might consider one since that sculpted design was pretty nice, but for me, it's mechanical or go home.
