    Ouch, I hope that RMA goes through for you. That must really suck to be down your power card.

    I suppose that that 5770 will sufice until you get a new power card?

    You know what. I am going to cast my 2 cents on the sexuality and gender discussion that I somewhat missed participating in. I did whack out a response on my phone before work, then forgot to submit and IE reloaded the page while I had the phone closed for so long.

    In the most respectful way possible. I dont give a damn. And I dont mean that in the sense that you should keep it out of my face, I mean it in the sense that I almost feel disgusted by the ideas of "I can accept this" or "I can tolerate this", not because I am a bigot and dont accept this or dont tolerate this, but because there is nothing to accept or tolerate.
    Its just love and what gender the loving couple consist of is not of my concern.

    I dislike the terms tolerance and acceptance simply because to me there is nothing to tolerate any more so than a man marrying a woman.

    I had a friend who was somewhat surprised that I had no reaction whatsoever when he somewhat formally said to me that he was gay for the first time (although it was hardly a secret), he was even somewhat worried that my lack of reaction was me secretly wishing for him to burn or something. No, its just that a) I already knew (was basically thinking "newsflash") and b) I did not see him any differently for whether or not he is attracted to men or women.


    Hell. If you are a bloke and you are attracted to other blokes, why the fuck should I care who you choose to date, move in with, marry, etc etc? Its not my life so why should I give a flying fuck.


    Oh. I know of at least 2 other forum users openly admitting to being gay prior to SHOme. 1 of whom is now banned so thats not really a thing I suppose.

    As for even further back. There is at least 1 girl registered here although she hasnt been online in a while nor made a big deal of it (rightfully so). Got to be a few more lurking. I refuse to accept there is only 1.

    Alright, I need a little bit of advice here.

    I have an Antec 902 case with stock fans in every slot. I was thinking of replacing the top and front fans and linking the side fan to the CPU via liquid cooling.


    (imported from here)

    Would it be more wise to link the Kraken I mentioned in the back and use only the top as the only exhaust fan, or should I follow through with installing the Kraken in the side slot?

    I repasted my CPU and temps are back down to the normal 60c max after Prime95. Whatever.

    Yeah I hope so. Well thus far its good on that though since sapphire support is pretty good it seems.

    Yeah I'm actually surprised by the 5770, when i tested it last it was packed with dust so it was overheating like crazy, I spent a few hours today clearing all that out and I've got to say other than GTA 5 (which has huges visual problems for whatever reason) every game I've threw at it has been really good, Mafia 2 is running at 40fps maxed out Fallout 3 at 60fps maxed out and the Evil Within (which is known for being awfully optimized) still pulls 30fps out of this card, all while staying under 60c. I'm pretty happy to use it as my main card until I get the 7870 back really.

    So I got a game that has VAC in it, and guess what? It's kicked me from every single match i've tried to play.... As well as forced me to restart Steam to even launch the game sometimes (else it won't let me even join matches)... gg VAC :|

    I remember you. Only noticed recently that you were somewhat inactive though.

    I kind of went dark because school caught up with me and stuff... I am trying to decide whether to try and get up to speed with this game or just forget about it.

    Yup, you are that guy who used to do things :p
    But yeah i do remember your username being fairly frequent, cant remember much else about you though it must be said.

    Rather than getting a really low end water cooling setup just get a nice air cooling one. There is plenty of choice and many are very competitive when compared to the water cooling setups while being less of a pain in the arse in general with far less to balls up. Especially when you are talking about 5 or 6 deg c under load on i7 extreme edition parts between a nice noctua setup and some of the corsair stuff.

    That really depends on how much you have got going on and whether you need something to do outside of school at the moment. You could probably get up to speed fairly quickly though. The wiki has improved a lot and the game has changed a bit. The community is basically the same as ever.

    Im not sure why it bothers some people so much but each to their own i guess as long as they dont cause issues for others.


    These forums are the only place where i have ever mentioned anything. While i probably should mention it to *some* of my friends out of courtesy i also dont want to cause them any "issues". There are some people in my sixth form who are open about it but i have noticed that some conversation topics rarely ever occur when they are around and im just as guilty of that too. There are some topics that i wont mention around them because i have no idea what is "socially acceptable" and dont want to accidentally offend them or exclude them (which i am doing anyway at that point, so mission failed there) and so on. So from that perspective i feel that it is probably best that i dont mention it since that gives others one less thing to think about and doesn't cause any issues. Especially since a few of my friends have some rather edgy banter that i do enjoy and join in with occasionally when i am around them. I also know that there are some people who would not treat me any differently as well.
    But as much as i would love to stay in touch with friends from sixth form i already know from several past experiences that it never really happens and that i will probably never see or hear from any of them again other than the odd steam message. So it really isn't worth it anyway at this point :p
    But it would be interesting to hear what thoughts others have on this.

    OMG so I just got a call from the Nissan dealership's owner AND general manager, on a 3 way call, and they are offering me 2x my current bonus check to just up and leave and start there tomorrow....I do not want to leave my current job in a bind, since we have 2 other reps in my department, one is out for the week and the other is only part time....I could get a sizable cash "sign on bonus" just for quitting and burning this bridge, but my resume and references are very important, since that plays a huge role in securing positions within a dealership (especially on Long Island, the land of the car dealerships).

    what should I do? quit with no notice, or stay for my 2 weeks? Now im worried that if I decide to stay here, they might get pissed at me over at Nissan, but of course if I am dick and up and leave here, I will hurt my fellow office mates and my manager, whom I care very much for.

    Certainly not something I am used to...to be bid on like this (however my current job did nothing to try and keep me, they even said they had someone in mind to replace me.....) im just a little sad about it, that's all (what a problem to be sad about, right?)

    Im gonna call my manager Maria tonite after work in 15 min on my way home and feel her out. She might understand?

    It's just a job, you gave your 2 weeks notice, and people you meet come and go. I'd recommend just jumping right into the Nissan deal, they WANT you there, and like you said, that Kia dealership is in shambles. You know the people there, and you don't need to be a dick when you leave. Invite them over for beer and pizza. At least don't walk out with nothing, make the best of it.

    I say stay for your two weeks. Explain the situation to the people at Nissan and I'm sure they'll understand.
    Don't be a greedy bastard.
