    Welcome to XenForo

    Umlauts got broken in the migration. (Example: I reported this with the first test already, by the way. Do newly posted ääkköset work? Edit: yes, only the old posts are screwed.

    What's your mobile phone history?

    I've had too many phones to list at this point... But I think it started with a Nokia 5110, possibly even in 1998 (year of its release; I would've been 10yo at the time) but I always got used phones when I was young because new ones were far too expensive... (whereas always upgrading to "new to...

    I just finished playing...

    The Last Of Us Remastered (PS4) Playstation-exclusive corridor shooter with zombies. What sets it apart from other corridor shooters is that it's very narratively focused and artsy, and for some reason it's very very highly regarded. Positives: - Excellent animation quality - Great voice...

    The whole point was that he way overspent on cooling. Not which GPU generation he chose which was just a way of estimating his budget. But. Speaking of architectures. No matter how you spin it, it's an extremely stupid thing to do to buy a brand new GPU at this time of the GPU release cycle...

    1. You said " with a liquid cooling block already installed " which implies a previous owner installed it. For factory watercooled cards there are brand names and terminology (like EVGA Hydro Copper or Asus Poseidon, and "Hybrid" in case of hybrids) to avoid confusion. 2. Also who would ever...

    Yeah, if we must do a car analogy relating to that awful cooling/TDP ratio, then the more accurate car analogy would be like installing a super overkill high end exhaust on a stock completely ordinary car. And yeah, it's OK to throw away money on things you enjoy.... but judging from the fact...

    Assassin's Creed: Origins (+ DLCs) - 78 hours As said in all the reviews out there, they really overhauled AC in a big way for Origins. It's no longer as much Assassin's Creed as it is a grown up pseudo-RPG in the style of The Witcher 3. Some features aren't there yet and will be in Odyssey in...

    What an obscene waste of money for an 8700k + 1080 build.

    Do you watch live streams for entertainment?

    Don't watch bad streams then. Dodger is particularly bad, it seems to me that people watch her for her looks (although it's been a year, maybe two since I dropped by her stream). Of course this is a matter of taste. Personally I watch streams to take in new strategies and ways of thinking about...
