    Too old to enjoy hardcore gaming anymore? :(

    Wow... you guys are making me cry :cry: I can relate to all of it and mostly I miss the time I had to spend on TPU and helping others :toast: . I just pop on World of Warcraft these days to get my gaming fix with the time I have for gaming these days...

    XIGMATEK Intros Apache Plus Top-flow CPU Cooler

    I believe they were one of the first to market a AIO HS and did make decent coolers and cases at one time but I haven't kept up with anything they've made lately... https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/?category=&manufacturer=Xigmatek&pp=25&order=date

    Would you buy a used mining card?

    I have several comments since I'm about to pull the trigger on a used card from a miner. First he's a long time TPU member and is trust worthy in my eyes. Second I'm no where in the market for a six hundred to one thousand dollar new video card. Third I can buy a card similar to what I have for...

    Azza Storm 6000

    I purchased a AZZA 3000 from SneakyPete several years ago. It's a nice large case and fits my needs with 360 rad and water loop. I agree with Assimilator if you put the glass on the side your cable management needs to be up to par but over all a large workable case at a decent price. Thanks for...

    A Monitor RMA gone Bad_ASS

    This one is a first for me and perhaps common place for others. I had a 27" ASUS VN289H where the backlight went out. I thought dam I have to purchase a new monitor but before doing so I check my warranty and I had the ASUS Rapid Replacement still good from 2016 at the time I bought it. Well...

    Sharkoon Announces Skiller SGC1 ATX Midi Tower Series

    You can change the Red to a different color fan and not have to puke... My rig is red and black... How I like it when I built it years ago but you're right the red and black seems to be over done with the onslaught of all the pretty LED's these days. My opinion is the Sharkoon SGC1 is still a...

    Virtual Reality Club

    Yeah stumbling, bumbling through it... disappointed to read there are tracking issues not yet resolved. Big issue for me are controllers since I'm not crazy about using Xbox controllers in Steam or the Steam controller which I hate even more. I could cough up another 80 bucks or so on a Leap...

    Virtual Reality Club

    Mostly certainly is a uphill climb with a 60lb backpack dragging a boat anchor... but that's part of the fun :) Learning and getting to know the ins and outs. I've found some of the cheaper games on Steam VR work really well... just tried Mount Wingsuit was great till I hit the ground.

    Virtual Reality Club

    Okay everyone I don't want to sound alarmed but I think I just jumped into a can of worms... lol The Razor HDK2 is a true developers HDM and given I was told so prior to purchasing I will own the issues I have run into during setup. Even the initial setup can be cumbersome and convoluted with...

    What are you playing?

    I've been playing some Fall Out 4 when I get time and of course I still goof in WoW but game time is limited. Just seems like so much you can do in F4 it's daunting trying to find time to complete a lot of missions but means longer gaming time. WoW is always good to just jump in an get some...
