I finally upgraded my WHR-HP-G54 (54G) to an ASUS RT-N10P (150N)

 

Have a higher noise floor and more interference, but the throughput increase is a plus.  Unfortunately had a fuss getting my modem to autoconf my dhcp, figured out tomato was not erasing nvram.  To top it all off I forgot to backup my config, so I had to forward all my ports, mount all cifs drives, etc.

 

Overall I went from an average of 1.6Mbps (12.8Mbps) to 8.68MBps (69.44 Mbps).  Not sure if this is a limitation as I am measuring off my Raspberry Pi, which is using a Class 8 SD card.  I have several UHS-1 cards, but I do not think it would be worth wasting a new card for XBMC over lan.  Maybe I should?

 

I still need to optimize, but I am more than satisfied for $15!  ($5 after rebate).  Will see how stable it is after a week and report back...

They do not note the years they purchased these drives, batches, defects, etc.  Their sample sizes are weird too >.>

 

Just because some article says Kim Jong-un landed a man on the sun and back in less than 18 hours does not mean that he actually did (Or that he supposedly has a unicorn ranch) :D

 

Not too sure of the context here ... but just re: life span and mechanical drives ... I've had two 600GB WD Velociraptors (10,000RPM drive) in RAID 0 for over 2.5 years now. Nary a hiccup. I image weekly, though cause one, it's RAID and two, it's mechanical drives. For mech drives they are pretty respectable as a RAID 0 set up, ... pretty snappy.

 

Also, weekly usage over that time frame is generally full time machine-on from 5pm to 5am ... turn rig off during the day when I work.

Did you guys see NZXT's CAM software?

Just googled it.  I first thought you meant Computer Aided Manufacturing software and I was like OH GOD.  It looks pretty snazzy.  MSI afterburner is what started crashing my gpu randomly.  I don't know why, but I uninstalled and everything works fine and my temps don't disappear using cpuid anymore.  I might try reinstalling but I'm scared.

Heard it was incredibly resource intensive.

 

Read through the REddit post and the rep said that it was currently targeted at beginner PC Newbs with limited functionality. Nowhere near as advanced as HWMonitor. Guy said they were still working on UI and making it suck less in terms of resources.

 

Skip until they make it better

PCGamer gets its hands on the new Wolfenstein game, which is currently famous for its PC requirements and 'claims' on being a fully pc-oriented experience of graphical prowress, GPU and CPU crushing power, and nazi-bashing glory.

 

From what I can tell from the stills...it seems to be a dissapointment to everything.

 

Considering its claims and system requirements. The graphics we are seeing, which are being run on PCGamers famous LPC Gaming Monster, are lackluster.

 

I mean look at that? It looks like HD Call of Duty 2007. 

 

The textures and physics are crap as hell. Many of the in-game objects are 'stand out' and not smoothed into the background (a trait of older games). There is barely any visible tesselation or parallax occlusion mapping. Color Grading/scheme is bland and generic as hell. And hell, even the guns are piss poor in quality. Half the gun models have polygon shapped curves on the barrels (DX9 days anyone?) despite the hardware suggested requirements and claims. And don't even get me going on the lack or piss-poor usage of lightning, local reflections, or any of the other 'shiny' and 'wooo', and 'ahh' schiit that games add in being mega fail from the peviews.

 

Warning: High res pictures:

Here, you can see the schitty gun model, schitty physics and enemy models, stand out game-objects, and schitty textures.

Here, you can see the extent of the lighting and 'ooo' and 'ahh' capabilities of the game despite its hardware requirements.

 

 

Putting on an agressive ad campaign towards PC Gamers with massive claims, putting out aggressive suggested hardware specs, and fighting Nazis as a hero != a game targeted towards PC Gamers, a well optomized game, good game engine, sales

^Russian Badger played that on his stream for a couple hours today.  I only caught like 40 minutes of it but it looked pretty terrible. The atmosphere reminds me a lot of the 2033 and last light but they did it way better obviously.   The cut scenes dialogue and silliness of the game (Jumping out of a flying plane onto the wing of another and then dudes opening the door for you) is just way over the top.  It's fun in the sense that you can make fun of it but god I'd be embarrassed if I developed it.  

 

I guess I'm kinda glad they didn't do a half assed multiplayer like they did with The Last of Us and the Uncharted series (those are both stellar games) but that'd mean even less time would be spent on the single player game.

Obvious you guys do not like Wolfenstein haha.

Wolfenstein has always been over the top.

It is what fans of the franchise want. From videos or seems that they tried to get a traditional FPS gameplay with current FPS story telling

I think will be a refreshing, possibly nostalgic experience

I was looking around on NZXT's website when I saw CAM. I remembered seeing you guys mention it, and as I was about o downlad it, I saw what bowei said. Never mind about the download. I still do love what NZXT is doing these days.

Extremely. It's worse than Skype which is already pretty bad. I'd stay with CPUID's stuff, AIDA64, or HWInfo64.
