    I have been a member at XS for quite a while and while I do agree with you that people are less helpful now then they used to be, you can still get lots of information and help there, especially in the wcg section :)



    Good advice, just let them be. Focus on what we have going here.


    On a side note, just got my first i7 rig together. Right now priming at 3.8, ht on, 1.24v, cooling with a lapped true and med panaflo. Temps in the low 60's :rockout:

    Edit: just took as screenie.

    I agree, in a non homosexual way as well! :toast:

    thast the same way I feel about XS, although I have gotten help there don't get me wrong, its just a forum thats good to browse around and gather what you need. But staying around and trying to get help just doenst happen there. Thats why im on my way to 6k posts in just over a year here at TPU, the most amazing forum evar!!! :rockout:

    every time i make a thread on XS asking about something i get 1 or 2 responses with general remarks questioning that i have any knowledge at all.

    if i reply to someone elses thread my comment goes unnoticed as if i never posted it at all.

    now dont take me wrong though. i like XS alot.

    i have gotten my fair share of praise in just 2 threads, my supercooler build log and my acrylic tops project log.

    XS has tons of great reading material and thats as valuable to me as anything else. i DO wish they would be more helpful though.

    that thread is pretty much dead.

    once i get into specific questions no one replies.

    i've tried other forums as well. no one knows phase or cascade stuff as well as they say and the ones who do wont help because they would rather you pay them to do it.

    rant = off.

    If I was really back home (originally from TX), I'd pay that guy a visit over at Lubbock just to see if he can back up what he says on his forums:laugh:

    Look up. Look way up.
    I followed the link and read that page....gosh what children...and who'd want to be a member of a tech forum that has a c**ks***ng smilie anyway?? Real mature. A sign of low self-esteem maybe? People who always have to be right or better? Geez.

    Ooooo who can crunch more?? Who gives a f***. Paulieg is right in his posts.

    Personally, I think we should leave them alone in their sandbox. TPU is just fine.


    TPU rocks! :rockout:

    yeah I got caught by surprise over there, nobody said anything offensive. But yet the owner of the forums is the first to break the rules and call me a pussy.

    Rule #1, anything goes... (Other than personal attacks, continuous flaming, sexually explicit pics, mentioning of illegal drugs, trolling, and innapropiate user names.

    But he calls me a pussy, thats a personal attack right?

    Instead of wasting your time and money looking for some Internet trash talker, spend it on a Q8200 in a matx rig and give the team a healthy boost. :)


    I'm sure you'd hurt their e-penis feelings that way too..afterall, they dont like the idea of TPU doing better in WCG than they are doing. :toast:
