    Picking up an Oculus Rift S

    I own the Rift and love it but setting up the 3 sensors is a pain in the rump...all the cords too. Now that the Rift S is out and Ive read many reviews I think it is a fair trade off moving to it and placing my Rift in storage. Just the inside out sensors alone make me want to make this...

    The Warhorn. A simple looking but pleasantly fun adventure. A mini review.

    Well I have to admit I was hesitant on this one. Never heard of it and it just seemed to arrive on steam. Looking at reviews; the positive far outweigh the negatives but with only 50 reviews I had a feeling I shouldn't waste my time. The simple graphics kept drawing me back and after a few days...

    The Outer Worlds (PC, XBOX. PS4)

    Now this is a game I can get behind. Makers of the original Fallout? Devs of Fallout New Vegas? Obsidian? (Lets not think about Microsoft right this moment) So I searched and did not see mention of this game on the way. Anyone else interested in this title? https://outerworlds.obsidian.net/

    Steam issue

    So I have been experiencing this issue for awhile now. Steam normally boots up instantly. Click on a game and it loads...instantly. For the past 4 months though when I turn steam on it takes about 2-3 minutes before I see it actually load up. So I click the steam icon and then nothing happens at...

    gaming and youtube

    So my daughter has been wanting to record, edit and post gaming videos to Youtube for awhile now. I wasn't really into this but the wife finally caved and said ok. (We plan to let her do it but the videos will be private until we feel going public is ok. Anyways I can google this but I thought...

    Added a new tube amp to my collection.

    Tubes aren't for everyone but for some...tubes are everything. I found this very sweet sounding Golden Tube SE-40 that has been fully upgraded by Sonic Craft with their SE40REL+ upgrade. These amps were notorious for sounding sweet and failing; hence the upgrade performed by Sonic Craft. Now...

    Replaced my Rotel 1092 with another cd player

    I picked up a gem this past week in the form of the Audio Space CDP-8A w/ level 1 mod by cullencircuits. I always loved the Rotel and it's sound but the Audio Space is on a whole other level. This thing sounds beautiful. Clarity, depth, open, and rich come to mind. This is CD bliss. Vacuum...

    Fan controller for server cabinet?

    Hey gang. I have a 42u Server Cab and I'm currently running 4x 120mm fans mounted to the top of the cab that plug into an AC power strip built into my cab. What I would like is a fan controller that allows fans with AC plugs to be attached. So far I have not had much luck. I would love...

    Look what I found

    I was going through my parts bin last night looking for some Xeon chips I know I have when I came across a brand new nvidia quadro 290. I forgot I had this. I never did find a use for it back when it was actually worth something.

    You know you are lazy when...

    The last few years I found that every time I build a new gaming rig I buy a new case. Not because I need a new case but because I can't be bothered to remove all the stuff installed in the case. This is a new form of lazy for me. It's just easier to put one PC together than to remove all the...

    i5 2500K vs i5 4570?

    So my kid's gaming rig currently has a 2500K at 4.5Ghz but sitting on my desk at home is a brand new 4570 NON K that I have had for quite some time. It is brand new and originally I was going to build a PC with it but that never happened. Considering it is a locked chip, do you think it's worth...

    Upgraded to a GTX 1080 Ti from a GTX 1080 and wow.

    Ever since moving into the 4k world it has been a love hate relationship. 4K looks...fantastic. Games playing in 4k look...fantastic. Most games that I play can be played in 4K with ultra settings without a hitch. Some games cannot. BF1 is a prime example. 6600k @ 4.5Ghz, 32GB DDR4 3000, and a...

    Extending the range of the Oculus

    My normal play area is right in front of my desk and that particular spot is fairly small. 3 foot wide by 5 foot deep. It is doable but certain games like Super Hot are impossible to play without punching something around the play area. So about 10 feet away in the same room is a much larger...

    Lone Echo

    Is OMG amazing. (I sound like my daughter typing that) but damn...I just played about an hour and I wish I didn't have to go to bed for work. This game is...incredible. Visually this game is stunning. This is what VR is all about. This is why I purchased the Oculus. Now I just have to get...

    Mad Max on sale at Steam $17.99

    Pretty good deal considering it rarely drops below retail price. Sale is good for another 20 hours. I've held off until now to get this but I couldn't pass up this deal. $17.00 (my mistake) http://store.steampowered.com/app/234140/

    Lets see your headphone stations

    Mine is quite simple at the moment as I recently moved into another home and I'm just running a basic setup at my desk. I have spent thousands of dollars in the past 4 years on headphone equipment but sold off the $1500+ amp and such because nothing matches (that I have tried) this headphone...
