Re: (tentative) my less-old crap i5-3570k and stuff

mobo is a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H - http://uk.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z77-DS3H-rev-11 One thing to note with it is that somehow the LAN capability died on it, so I've been using a separate TPlink card for networking. Apart from that defect, it's been wonderfully stable. I've only done light overclo...

Re: (tentative) my less-old crap i5-3570k and stuff

It's actually interesting looking at ITX cases, there's a lot of them that aren't significantly smaller than midi-ATX which is where I'm at right now My leading contender right now is the phanteks evolv itx, at 230x375x395mm, which is smaller than my Lian-li A05 which is 210x381x489 (or whatever the...

(tentative) my less-old crap i5-3570k and stuff

Subject to intel releasing the 8-series i7 chips a decent amount of time before the next lan, is anyone interested in taking my 3570k off my hands? either as a cpu+mobo+ram combo, or if I add a new HDD (either with a new win10 license or 2017 the year of Linux on the desktop it) build it up into a n...

Re: Madman smashes into big Bush

Looking at this https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@50.68262 ... a=!5m1!1e1
it seems to be mostly south/westbound away from the exmouth turning, and/or general rush hour traffic.

Re: CSGO

Just for anyone thinking "oh, I'll just do it at lan, it can't be that bad" - it's 1.6GB of downloading.

Payday 2 is free on steam until the 4th July. That should allow lots of newbs like me to be the victim of necessary roughness.

In all seriousness, the timing is convenient for picking up lan-able games

Re: Savage Rebirth

So this is out for £15.19, are enough people going to buy it to actually have a game? It's 12v12 at the moment

Re: Woah, console gaming feels crappy after PC gaming!

That's the other thing I find with mobile games, input methods for a screen are hit and miss, plus you're obscuring your view by using it. It's not as bad for a tablet. Porting games made for a TV/monitor make me feel weird.

Re: Woah, console gaming feels crappy after PC gaming!

Given the availability of mobile internet now, I just can't really get into the headspace of mobile gaming in public. I don't really have enough 'empty' time when I'm out and about/away from main PC that I'd want to get into a game, let alone something involved. So I'll just keep on seeing what the ...

Overwatch beta

I've got a beta key to give away. Beta starts on the 3rd (or maybe 4th in EU), and the key should work in a battlenet account.

8426602360840925**9390724

The ** is the sum of the two digits for the next westlan event number (eg, Saltlan 79), minus one.

While this topic is bumped: I've got the original disc copy of C&C3 which used securom for copy protection (among other EA games of that period), and MS disabled securom from running in win10 for security reasons, does anyone know the best (preferably legitimate way to use my legitimate games) r...
