    Cities: Skylines Snowfall (expansion pack)

    Colossal Order just keep delivering for the players of Cities: Skylines. Absolutely love their approach to DLC in the form of old school expansion packs, even if you didn't buy their last expansion you still got the free patch that added in the day/night cycle ect. There is already the Steam...

    Recommendations on UK ISO Cherry MX Brown switch Keyboards

    My Zowie Celeritas is borked so i need a replacement. I'm currently using my backup board which i normally use on my windows 98se rig which, it's a q-pad with mx reds. The board is okay but its even louder than my Zowie, i think the keycaps are the culprit. I used to have a Corsair K90 with...

    Where are the resolution/refresh rate settings in AMD Crimson?

    Having to use Windows display settings manager to change resolution. Advanced display settings shows the resolution but to change refresh rate i have to go to display adapter properties! It's just a longer step than it being right there one click away in CCC. Not only that but CCC is still...

    Bought my cousin a 700ml bottle of Bunnahabhain 12 y/o for his birthday recently from the Good Spirits Co. Last bottle of whisky i bought for myself was an okay but way overpriced Oban 14 (uses caramel colouring which is ashame but typical Diageo) and a bottle of Adnams First Rate Gin which is...

    Do virgin still traffic shape at peak times? My brother had them before he moved into his new gaff and got BT (facepalm), he wanted fiber but their house is a new building and their street won't have fiber for awhile yet. I just picked a random server closest to me in Glasgow. For some reason...

    EDIT

    Im going to go mental if i have to RMA my brand new Samsung 850 EVO 500gb SSD. The data migration tool is a complete JOKE. What the heck is "Cloning failed. Target Disk has been disconnected."? Never had a problem with my Crucial drive or even the OCZ SSD i got when everyone was shitting on OCZ...

    It's everyone's right to vote for anyone they like. I'll never bully someone for not voting for the party i happened to vote for as not everyone believes in the same politics but I'll vehemently oppose policies which i find destructive. Conservatives seem to have taken a lot of the Liberal...

    I'm sitting up drinking irn bru and watching the UK general election unfold. Not enjoying it at all. How the fuck SNP managed to get so much support is beyond me, in Westminster they where always a total fringe party. Nigel Farage might not win the seat he's running for. Would be great to see...

    I'll probably vote Greens, not that it matters because the constituency i live in is a Labour seat and its likely to be them or SNP. The way i see it is that I'm increasing the number of total votes for Scottish Green and that's good publicity for them. I don't tactically vote otherwise i'd be...

    My desks just a countertop from ikea strapped to the wall and using legs as support at one end. If i hadn't to fit my drawers under it i would have just used 2 cupboards or similar as ends. Before that i had a Malm desk which i gave to my cousin. My mate uses regular Linmon tables as desks. I...

    EDIT

    Every Micro USB cable i have ever owned has ended up buggered (not able to make a connection). Other than the connector being a crap design i don't know. The connection always goes slack and the male end starts to move around meaning it doesn't connect with the female end properly. I have...

    A bottle of wine a day is not bad for you and abstaining is worse than drinking, scientist claims

    And to give this a gaming spin, in the stalker series you drink vodka to get rid of rads. Wheres the evidence to support that drinking a bottle of wine a day is great for you? EDIT: Ferrum Master, the effects of the incident where felt all over Europe because of winds.

    Angry Joe Battlefield Hardline Review.

    I have been waiting for Joe to rip this game apart. It isn't totally broken but its clearly not a good game either. If i want to play conquest im going to go back to BF 4 now its been patched to hell, not play a watered down copy pasta with worse features and a tagged on skin. EDIT: Gaming...

    Sony announces at GDC that around 20.2 million PS4 units have been sold!

    Right first off no system wars or mods will be likely to close down the thread. Well thats a lot of PS4s, i wonder how Sony does it? Is it sheer brand power or is there some excellent marketing strategy? Who knows but 20.2 million PS4s is a hell of a lot to sell in just over 1 year, thats not...

    Kinda wish i had gotten a 2600k but i didn't need the extra threads for gaming, so i saved some money. Yah textures are mashing up vram and also when you go over "1080p" res, a 6gb card would be ideal 8gb of vram would provide a bit of headroom. I was reading that the next gen of AMD cards might...

    I've been debating getting a GTX970 since release but glad i decided to wait for Skylake and GM200. Maybe by then AMD will have something else out too. Sick of incremental releases, there has been no real reason for me to upgrade my i5 2500k and while my 6850 lacks i can handle that for another...

    Occasionally buzzing noise \ coil whine in Far Cry 4 menu start on Asus Strix 980.

    Try VSync either in game or force it through the driver control panel. I think that it might be the insanely high FPS that's making the card whine, although coil whine is a nuisance it's not going to damage the graphics card. EDIT: You might get coil whine at load but not at situations like at...

    Case airflow changing the room temperature ?

    Air cooling cannot go lower than the ambient temperature of the room. If your room is that cold then that's the problem there. All air cooling does is cycle air, it moves the colder air from the outside of the case into the case and extracts the hot air from the case in a cycle. You still need...

    EDIT

    I use my TV with my pc as a second display for movies, some gaming although mostly i use my monitor. I've been looking into calibration and i figured that i would set the Pixel Format to YCbCr 4:4:4 because movies and tv are encoded in YCbCr. However i am assuming games are RGB Full 444 (0-255)...
