So is there anything you can use now to get high completion points or is it just the more processors the merrier?
Nope, just more GHz and more cores (and maybe a data center or two).

No disrepect, but we should take this back to the WCG thread before the Hammer comes down on us :fear:

You're welcome to jump in and ask questions there @ALMOSTunseen, but we're sure to be reprimanded in this thread :)

Figured I'd repaste my 7770 while it's sitting out on my desk. Despite being only 4 screws, the cooler was a PITA to get back on :(


Wow now that's creative thinking right there:toast:

Meh. Mechanicals. Great for servers, I guess. BF4 load times have made me prejudiced. :roll:

nevermind needing the right board...etc...

Still schmexy though. I need at least that capacity for STEAM games. :p

How about a BLACK EDITION board that's not 100% black? :roll:

Is it me or do the new line up of Z97 motherboards look empty? (apart from that Giga BE)

Cant wait to see some extreme OC editions, rather than the gaming line ups!

wouldn't it be more correct calling this "Red Edition" when we talk about the heat sinks and not "Black Edition" ? :laugh:

Is that one next to the 24 pin power below the USB 3.0? If not, it would seem it doesn't.
