    Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs

    I backed this game on Kickstarter like ... a long time ago. And this game has become one of few that did manage to release. I have spent only an hour or two so far. It is alright, especially for an indie game built with Unity. http://store.steampowered.com/app/464150/ P.S. The chicks are the...

    Media / pseudo NAS rig [Planning stage @ May 7 , 2017]

    Well, with my main rig (almost) done, I set my eyes on the next stuff I've been planning to change. It's my media rig that also acts as a storage and backup device. It's pseudo NAS since I simply use Windows network to transfer/backup files and then I swap out drives to keep them offline. 90%...

    Anyone got any idea where I could get this elsewhere?

    There seems to be an exclusive Microcenter Suermicro S5 case. http://www.microcenter.com/product/450657/s5_platinum_gaming_case Elsewhere, they have red trim version without a window which I do not want. A major benefit of this case is that it has the mounting holes for Supermicro server...

    Finding a case for SM MBD-X10DAL-I-O

    I am planning a dual socket build. It's in a planning stage right now and don't have any parts at all to start with other than a single E5-2683v3 CPU. This build isn't going to be done over a night. Actually, this is a part of my 3-month plan. Since I don't want to go E-ATX, this Supermicro...

    Pulling trigger for PS4, but one lingering quesion

    I am about to pull trigger for PS4 since there are now 3 games I am wanting to play. I am a guy who brought Wii U just to play Xenoblade Chronicles X, so 3 wanted games warrant the console purchase. The only difference is enthusiasm. I was dying to play Xenoblade Chronicles X. But I am not...

    Hello, guys. I haven't posted a new build log for years. But decided to put on this one. My new case will be Lian Li PC-Q33.
