    Sounds like a good price, and you could probably ask for more. Would've been tempted by some of those items if you were selling separately.

    You can put your cpu between two pieces of foam rubber(polyurethane) and just stick them two together with some sticky tape.

    many people do this, but also use some type tape with a piece of foam to hold the cpu down in case it comes loose and to protect it.

    Depends on the platform and socket tbh, I moved my 4100 in an Asus mobo and the clip was loose.

    A rubber hammer to the face while I'm piloting a boat held up by hot air balloon in fact.

    Those interested in what I'm talking about, it's on my stream:

    I wet myself everytime I replay the noises you make as you tell me to "take the hammer you apple, yeah"

    We should stream with you more often, I always stream with Brad (8bitpineapple) and Dave(unholywar), and you seemed to improve on the humor.

    Id love to be part of your streaming party - sadly getting home at 11pm-1am at night and working most weekends doesnt really help with trying to work it into the schedule. Do you use twitch to record/stream or MSI Afterburner?

    NVidia Shadowplay actually, keeps the overheads extremely low and does a good job of cutting my gaming res of 1440p down to 720p better than most other streaming programs I've used. We don't stream on a schedule, but I start streaming as soon as I get to home until I stop playing games pretty much, so people just drop in on TS and join the chat.

    I guess i'll have to stop myself making racially offensive slurs in that case :p -- Not that i make a lot of them anyway, but when the rest of the world is watching certain standards have to be met. Unless we're just a bunch of rowdy lawless rednecks in which case why the hell would we even know what a computer or internet is?

    Guns Of Icarus. Ive only played it for the first time yesterday but from what i hear its an OK game but the amount of enjoyment you get out of it mainly depends who your fellow shipmates are.

    The game is terrible, genuinely terrible, unless you have shipmates that you know/are capable of understanding the basics of the game. With these guys the game is ridiculous fun and most of the time hilarious. I'm amazed we won as many games as we did, but it takes some getting used to. We already have 4 players, but most matches are 2v2, so we could use a second batch of 4 crew for a second ship. Of course somebody needs to be the designated driver like me, and have an engi and a couple of gunners.

    One of those gunners usually doesnt repair or shoot anything, but jumps around the cockpit with his rubber hammer all the time.

    All are welcome on Teamspeak if you have it (I think Bo$$ already does) for everyone else, it's
