  1. 1 post and it's a thinly-veiled ad for a paid utility. And there's a whole bunch of techno-babble going on at the end of that first sentence. Please nobody buy this program. Handbrake gets my vote. It works for Windows and OSX and is totes free. Tons of options if you want to play with it but the presets work well if you just want to rip away.
  2. ya? wait a few years. My oldest son is driving now and about to graduate HS this year. My youngest son is about to get his permit this year. One can grow a beard almost and the other has a little stashe' coming in. Talk about not being able to keep up. It sucks bro, enjoy those babies while you can because it comes faster then you think. I'm 22 and I can't grow a beard.
  3. Aha! I knew you'd get the six core at some point! For all the video work you do I was amazed that you went with the quad-core initially.
  4. 32 man server...it's adaptive. Starts at 8 slots but expands as players join. Cool. I just bought the Digital Deluxe version and it finally finished downloading BF4 and the China Rising pack. There goes another 30GB of my SSD. Good thing I upgraded to a 512GB model. I'll give the campaign a play through and then join you guys next time you're on
  5. I still need to get BF4. Maybe I'll pick it up this weekend and join you guys next time you're on. Is the server only an 8-slot server? If so, that seems bizarrely small for a Conquest Large server.
  6. Damn. People got mad as hell because of the whole thermal paste thing. He did it according to the manual and used the paste that came with the blocks. It's applied that way for a reason; thin paste like that will spread way out under the mounting pressure of the waterblock. Non-conductive, non-capacitive paste like that could be slathered all over the card and not harm it at all. Steve, you still need to overclock this thing. You told me you had no reason to overclock before because you had enough performance and then you went and upgraded the whole rig with a new CPU and a 3rd card so I'm calling BS. I want to see what that 3DMark score looks like when all 3 of those cards are running at 1200 MHz+ and the CPU is OC'd. And I'm going to sit here and demand it over the internet because that clearly works. No but seriously. Pretty please.
  7. He can always run DVI if his future monitors don't have DisplayPort. Dual-link DVI supports [email protected] My 30" Dell is running off a DVI cable.
  8. Damn it Steve. Why did you have to go and do that? Until I see some 3DMark scores I still consider my rig to be faster than yours! You no longer have a reason not to overclock this thing if you're putting it under water. Also, I know you love criticism. You should have gotten the 6-core and the Black Edition mobo. And some matching RAM.
  9. you are overclocked to 4.6, mine is not. I THINK i might have the "turbo" setting at 3.8ghz. You also have a 3rd card. Our scores are pretty damn close, that is probably the difference. Don't make me go get that new DVI oil and put me over the top. Just put a little on the tip of the cable before plugging it in gets you 1000 3dmark points i heard LOL anyway, welcome to the 2% club The third card is just for PhysX. It doesn't affect the 3DMark score as 3DMark doesn't utilize PhysX. The CPU overclock definitely affects the score though. I haven't OC'd the GPU's yet. I might have to see if I can join the 1% club.
  10. Looks like a Corsair K90: http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-k90-performance-mmo-mechanical-gaming-keyboard.html Cherry MX Red switches for the QUERTY keys, arrow keys, and number pad. Membrane keys for the macro keys on the left, the F-row, and the cluster above the arrow keys:
  11. HAH! Looks familiar! I finally have you beat in 3DMark though! P18623: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6872209 X8680: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6872221 http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/172208-updates/
  12. You're starting a wall build this weekend and you don't even have a design for the wall yet?
  13. Double tubing probably isn't the best idea. It's not like the tube is going to split somewhere in the middle. If it's going to leak anywhere it would be where one of the tubes connected to one of the fittings, in which case double tubing would do you no good. It would only make it harder to bend. I got a kick out of this one. Turn that frown upside down! http://youtu.be/W2NUzaQrzCI
