The moment footage came out, and the game came out of it. I heard uproar everywhere. 

I wasn't,  I guess don't surround myself with people that play ubisoft games, no one mentioned it.  I haven't read game articles/sites for years, I'm a bit out of the loop I guess.  I just googled it and read the comments section to a few articles and you're completely right lol.

 

EDIT: Also page 400 :3

Phantom 410 is pretty decent to work with. Still don't like that enormous ugly looking side grille it has. Not very nice.

 

Unfortunately my friend forgot to order the heatsink and RAM so I have to go back next week. I probably spent more time gaping at how high RAM prices are than I spent building his computer with what he had so far.

 

@Bowei: thank goodness UCONN provides a Windows 8 Upgrade AND Windows 8.1 Upgrade key. Basically two free copies of Windows 8.1.

Lots of Reddit links to big sites complaining about it...so I thought...well whatever.

So multiple downloads for each version or same as UCONN?

 

Only disappointing part is how long it takes Windows 8.1 to download.

Multiple downloads

 

You get a page with Windows 7 etc etc with all the little flavors and you get to download as a download or iso

 

Full instals

 

No need to go through the process of going from instal to unlocking the full instal (even though it doesn't take that long). It just takes one step out of the process

Nice. I guess still not suitable for client builds but getting there.

Depends

 

the license key is a mass use license key. Forgot the terminology for it.

 

However it is illegal to use it otherwise and your logins are recorded as you need to be on campus to download it and sign in to your account to access it.

 

The unviersity provides you with access to a VPN to on campus networks to access on campus materials though. I have the VPN set up naturally but never have to use it obviously.

Mass use? UCONN has the single use ones where you're limited to one key (you can use it over and over again but it instantly deactivates the previous computer that was activated with that key).

 

It doesn't work like your normal retail full install keys where you can use it twice, once on a desktop and once on a notebook (apparently this is a thing. I haven't tried it out).

The codes we get are volume codes that are called MAK's that respond to the KMS and require command promt to activate. I schiit you not, our college instructions for installing Windows requires you to use the command promt. 

 

My first rejoices of going to a Tech College. 

 

So basically unlimited keys

KMS? Well that's somewhat disappointing tbh. Probably because in my eyes it's the easiest method to deceive Windows.

True. I wanted the 410 until I saw that icky fan grill under the window. They should've just done a full one.

I got my E07K!
post #6000 of 9059

I got my computer like two weeks ago and I was out $40 at the time, so I cheaped on the case. I was thinking of a white Corsair C70, but I already have a Thermaltake V3 Black! Is it bad I'm considering rebuilding it in a new case? The struggle is real, the upgraditis is real.
