    Crossfaith's new album is mediocre...

    If you want a more industrial/Djent metal style try a band called 'Sybreed' though their new album is a little different from their earlier releases - Less industrial and more black/death metal elements. Their industrial/electronica side is kinda like Celldweller.

    Also not a fan of real heavy screamo at all, but in very exceptional cases I can make do, e.g. Powerwolf, Crossfaith, Silent Descent, Killswitch engage (hell, children of bodom, static x, FFDP too).
    Sybreed seems pretty legit, no screaming, kinda reminds me of In Flames, only with less "feels" in the music. Not bad at all, but not the kind of thing that makes me wanna listen to more all the time like Coke Stars does.
    I'll listen to the rest of the album and hope I find some kind of epic song of awesome.

    To be honest im tired of all my music. My list of bands is pretty random and extensive, and im fairly bored of it all.
    I have twice as much music as this (but I sold my HDD's in my old rig, and this was all that was left on my phone) but this should give you the general idea

    I'm stuck debating between these two systems (going to be adding a 780 and my leftover EK 120.1 rad)
    The AMD Motherboard is a lot better and more feature rich, however the Intel has the better single threaded performance but is OC locked.

    Uhhh, some refinement and options might be nice xD Started listening to Scar Symmetry again though, those guys are pretty awesome.

    TouHou! AWESOMEEEE sound tracks! I remember playing that years ago.
    I'd say I've listened to at least 60% of the music in your folders, there are loads I havent heard of though, I just want to filter through all the average stuff.

    750K if you are going to out the 780, that should swing the price advantage to the AMD camp

    It says True Quad core, I'm assuming that actually means 4 modules?

    Time to move on to my Japanese collection?

    Most the bands In the pics i dont really listen anymore anyway, my tastes tend to change so much.

    There are few soft instrumental acoustic albums in my collection too but its all a mishmash of a load of everything. rock, pop and metal and whatever sub genre's

    In fact i have a problem where I can suggest similar bands by artist/band but i can give you better results if you just tell me what genre's youre looking for specifically.

    even though my music collection is a mess Im one of them people that tend to categorise everything i listen to by genre or sub-genres....

    Just think of me as a search engine and searching for 'Jpop or kpop or glam metal' will get you a wider range of hits

    Its the same silicon as Trinity, except with the graphics section disabled. 760K is Richland but clocks 300Mhz lower than 6800K.

    And supports faster memory speeds.... and most overclock better, a guy at work has one and is running it at 4.8 gig on air, he paid £61 for his and £42 for the motherboard, I am thinking of playing around with one!

    Building into a Silverstone SG07 and ordering all my gear for Monday. Only issue I'm having is finding an air cooler that will fit on my motherboard, be less than 117mm high, but be tall enough to clear my Kingston beast RAM. So far the Prolimantech Samuel 17 looks promising, but I just dont know yet. I'll build it on the stock cooler and start measure. If all else fails, I'll take the heatspreaders off.

    Would an EVGA Hadron Air be a better option? It's the same price, but lower wattage Gold PSU.

    Just recommend something like Scar Symmetry and I'll be happy.

    Season 1 + 2 were great, then I started Season 3 and was IMMENSELY BORED TO TEARS and then Season 4 was really awesome. I dont know what happened, but it happened somehow.

    The only comment I would make on that build.... apart from very nice is that for almost the same price you could have got the BRAND new Giga G1 Sniper 88x board which is forwards compatible with the new APU chips coming out in the next few weeks, you will not get any sensible upgrade path from 85x any longer.

    Not ITX :>
    This PC is solely for a tiny footprint. I can mod it very easily to fit an antec 620 or H60 in future too, preferably AFTER I've sold my GPU and monitor etc. Selling is slow these days for some reason.

    Just a thought, you could put a link in your sig to your FS thread? Might get people to look at it more?

    Seems legit. I think I'd know by now if any brits on TPU were interested in buying anything, so I've opened up the GPU to the EU. Just want shot of the thing, its all boxed up and packaged and ready to go, but nobody wants him, and I cant use it :<

    Want a 780? I'll throw in your case for free xD
