Crazy as it sounds.. its almost worth it if you removed the ASUS tax. Absolutely beautiful to use.

SoTTR, Horizon ZD, and Anthem made my eyes explode. Did not expect to see such details. Theres so many much smoke/fog etc that become visible too.

It's the same with this Nano IPS I just got, Ok no HDR but holy crap I'm seeing details in STO, Destiny 2 and Breakpoint I didn't know were there.

Dicehunter 27-04-21 06:15 PM

Didn't buy it but was gifted it, Now to wait 10 hours while it downloads ^_^

HZD was the first game in a long time that dropped my jaw on multiple occasions. Then I played it in HDR and it blew my mind even more. It's one of the best looking games of the past 20 years.

It's good looking yeah but I'm not being wowed much by the environment, Facial gfx are great, Think I just need to play it more.

Side note, Got Death Stranding.

For sure, you need to play way past the intro / training sequence. You'll be wowed later for sure. :D

I'm up to the part where I need to get to Mothers Crown, The landscape looks good but honestly not wowing me, I think landscapes in general are starting to all look graphically decent now i.e AC:Valhalla, Death Stranding, The Division etc... so nothing so far has made me stop and say "Woah", I think It'll have to take something really amazing to make me get a nerd on ^_^

Once you start exploring the world and get up high it will be a pretty big difference in woahness :D

Also consider it's a PS4 title that was ported. It's impressive for a console and still holds up to vast amount of PC titles. It wasn't my all time favorite but it was definitely good imo. I still think GOW was easily the best Sony IP of that generation of games.

It's pretty no doubt but TBH I'm more impressed by Death Strandings landscape which uses a newer version of the Decima engine, Ok for the most part it's just rocky/grassy areas but the detail is fantastic and the random waterfalls look amazing.

Smart tv went dumb this solves that issue :)

Something to tinker with today hopefully get it all working with alexa, then i can really mess around when mum is watching corrie and emerdale lol :D these were at least a hell of a lot cheaper than the phillips hue bulbs maybe one day these will come down even more so i'd do the whole house still not at base bulb prices just yet.

My big ass 6800XT needs some support noticed it started to sag a little it's a big card after all, simple fix :)

KingNosser 15-05-21 06:29 PM

Pretty nice little boat just go careful :D

I ordered the retroid pocket 2 off ebay sold out on the site and preorders are weeks away but didn't pay over the odds for it, would have prefered the newer ice model or the snes version but wanted to get it new rather than a used one can never know if it has an issue otherwise.

https://i.imgur.com/0pfc5tb.jpg

The idea of having all my fave games from years past on a portable device is really nice plays tons of stuff, hoping i can get the dreamcast stuff working to a playable state even if 25-30fps it'll be perfectly fine for my needs.
Something to tinker with but it plays a hell of a lot of games. Thou given the funds i'd spend 1k on the indiegogo site ones that have ryzens built into them or the $199 android that is meant to be coming that also looks good but for 90 this will serve as a good starting point for me to get things going portable as much as my phone is pretty powerful it's not the same as having good control methods :)

Now that you put it like that... :D Finland is quite pretty but it's not exactly Canada, is it?

Cheers @KingNosser & @Dark NighT!

@Excalabur50 I hope I've avoided the most costly pitfalls... The engine has been maintained according to schedule, it's a two-stroker (60bhp e-tec from 2007) and I can store it myself. It has also only been used in fresh water and I plan to keep it that way. But yeah, can still get hairy regardless. :D Another one is "boat is a hole in a water you throw money into"

Enjoy it buddy, you only live once and it's only money and you can't take it with you when you go, so enjoy it whilst you can :)

LG G1 oled this tv is don corleon, it was a toss up between the Sony AJ90 or the G1 after hours upon weeks of reviews went with the G1 cos i do like to pew pew a fair bit, if it was just for movies then it would of deffo been the Sony but for gaming the new LG's have that bit extra plus the 4 hdmi ports to the Sony's 2 and one of them is the eARC / ARC


https://imgur.com/a/fwD9Bjl





https://i.imgur.com/NKFvmh1.gif


https://i.imgur.com/AptZyjz.mp4


55'' is the smallest they do replaced my aging Sony


i see a lot of ppl say ouu 32 to 42 is the best size for pc monitor /gaming ect ect .. ballderdash!!! if you have the space to throw up an 80'' then i say its be the best thing wont regret it


all i gota do now is blow dust of my denon surround speakers and amp, even tho might get a new one for the hdmi connection but optical from the tv will be just fine for now

KingNosser 22-05-21 07:35 PM

I understand this as a few years ago now when flatscreens were new and smart tv's were early, I got a 32" bravia never did like only having 2 hdmi's thou one is arc. That first TV were DOA when i got it, the replacement lasted just under a year then they upgraded me to a 42" and so far touch wood it's been fine :)

Your new shiny TV looks nice thou enjoy it, surround sound is a must for me it's better than the cinema i don't have to over pay and i don't have to leave the house lol.

I think the only thing about modern TV's at least if smart is fully expect support to die off after a few years down to basic apps, so for me getting a firestick was a must recently it made my tv have a brain again :D

Dark NighT 25-05-21 02:31 PM

Pulled the trigger on this, just had to do it, i love the styling even though it is expensive, this will last me years longer then an average gpu!



https://image.coolblue.nl/max/2048x1...oducts/1506069


+ 4tb WD blue, usb hard drive dock and a argb ledstrip for inside this thing, gonna be a fun case to build in.

Wish I could have sold you mine. I never use it, but it really is beautiful

Dicehunter 25-05-21 04:29 PM

Great looking case, I really like Coolermasters stuff, Myself I've been trying to get a hold of the Mastercase SL600M but no luck so far, Anywhere that is selling them has them marked way up :(

Dark NighT 25-05-21 04:37 PM

Thanks fellas

There's a bunch of shops in the netherlands that sell the sl600m for about 220 euro's, probably still higher then you want, and import is a bit of a drag with brexit ofcourse.

Yeah with import fees due to Brexit I'd be looking at paying in the region of an extra 50 euro, At least 50 Euro for shipping and then there's the risk of various couriers not exactly being gentle.

I would trade my left man acorn for an SL600M that wasn't silly marked up or had a risk of death in shipping XD

Work colleague of mine sold me his iPhone 8 - 64 GB RED edition for 50, He bought it in 2018 when this specific model launched and then 2 days later saw the iPhone X so put the 8 RED back in its box and never touched it again, #winning for me nearly new iPhone ^_^

https://d1f7geppf3ca7.cloudfront.net...phone8_red.jpg


Also invested in some brand new Apple Airpod Pro's which I managed to get for a nice hefty discount, I do 20 minutes of cardio everyday so wanted something decent that can also hook up to my PC via bluetooth so I can watch series/movies while I do my cardio.

6 weeks ago, I ordered a CPU block from TechN in Germany. They got the block into DHL Express hands in 3 days, the actual shipment to Canada took the rest of that 6 weeks, LOL! Oh well, it got here, and it looks / performs superbly.

Have you seen their pump housings? I actually want to get a full TechN setup when I swap. Even their GPU block looks good.

Nope, I just have a Pokemon-type fetish for AM4 blocks I think, gotta try em all! Well except EK, they're overpriced garbage, but everything else, LOL!

aww sadly they removed it but you can still see it here in the picture. Someone should pull out their CNC machine and replicate this one.

I guess it wasnt efficient though as it looks like it would cook. No heatsink design like Swiftech/EK/Bitspower. Probably got too warm even if it is the nicest housing I have seen on a pump.

Yeah if that's a DDC top, good luck with that, LOL! Sure does look nice though. You don't see a lot of really cool or unique stand-alone pump tops anymore.

Dark NighT 09-06-21 04:40 PM

As some might have seen, returned the huge Cosmos c700m for its annoying little issues vs price so instead went for this Phanteks P600S White

both the S21 and S21+ are amazing devices. Sadly overpriced, but for a long time I always rated Huawei or OnePlus as better performing devices. This time round the S21 series really has proved me wrong.

Our inhouse benchmarking has it performing way higher than the rest, even with Exynos 2100 SoC. Exynos was never that great, until now.

Congrats to the both of you :)
