Didn't know that, that's cool!

You should make a return to Halo PC, we get together on Saturdays consistently.



BTW, QOTSA rocks!  One of my favorite bands.

Announcements / Halo Master Chief Collection for XBox One - Team Race Custom game
« Last post by Qotsa on December 11, 2017, 11:11:01 AM »
Hey Guys!

Been a very long time... doubt anyone here remembers me from over a decade ago.

Recently purchased a copy of Halo MC Collection, and much to my pleasure, they have Team Race as a custom playlist!

Is anyone here interested in getting some a race together on XBone? I would be more than happy to coordinate the effort in the hopes of getting something routine going!

Will check back regularly in hopes there is some interest here

Guess I will post my rig to. I have only had one major upgrade since my old build on Page 18. Haha also found my old old rig on page 7.

CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16 Core (XFR Enabled)
Mobo: ASUS X399 ROG Zenith Extreme
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200MHz 32GB
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080Ti AORUS Xtreme Edition (OC 2050Mhz Core; 12000MHz Memory)
Storage (Primary): OCZ 500GB SSD
Storage (Secondaries): 2x4TB WD Black + 1x3GB Seagate (Currently disconnected) + 3x2TB WD Black
PSU: Corsair HX1000 1000W Platinum Modular Power Supply
Case: Lian Li PC-X2000
Sound: ASUS Xonar Essence STX
Networking: ASUS PCE-AC88 AC3100 Wireless Adaptor
Cooling: Corsair 115i CPU Cooler + 4x Noctua NF-A14 Industrial 140mm PWM Fans (3 intake 1 exhaust)


Keyboard: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth 2016 Mech Gaming Keyboard
Mouse: Razer Mamba Tournament Edition Chroma RGB Laser Gaming Mouse
Headphones: Beyerdynamic DT770Pro 32ohm + Zalman clipon Mic


Monitors: Dell Ultrasharp U2410 IPS (24in) + BenQ XL2410T 120Hz (24in)

Notes:
  • This PC has 2 main purposes. First is a gaming machine and second is a virtual machine host. I can create multiple VM's for network protocol and application testing which I can allocate 4-8 threads each and 3-4GB memory, hence the 16 core CPU instead one better for just gaming.
  • My CPU I can OC all cores to 3.9GHz before thermals get to ~75-80C under Prime95, however I leave it with just XFR enabled because that automatically overclocks the first 4 cores to 4.2GHz, which is better for just gaming.
  • My 3TB is disconnected because when I bought my Mobo I thought it would have 8 SATA ports and it only had 6 -__-. Need a PCie SATA Card.
  • Next upgrades are the monitors. I am waiting for the Acer Predator X27 to be release early next year :). The other upgrade planning is the primary SSD which I am looking at the Samsung 960 PRO M.2 drives

That looks like a pretty good PC and I must say I was tempted by the Threadripper but then i relised just gaming on it would be a waste lol.

As for the water loop its not really hard to drain and i thought of that when building it as the Mayhems pastel coolent is recomended to be replaced at around 6 months,  to make it easier to fill and bleed I have a fill port that goes through the top of the case and as you can see in the pic I have a drain tube at the very bottom of the loop that goes to the basment of the case that has a tap on it, So if i want to drain it i just take of the back panel lossen the fill port at the top then open the tap at the drain tube and it drains the system with no mess in a few seconds.

I am getting older now. Seems like forever when BFM was a big part of my life :P.

I still hate LED's on computers. I even tape any lights so I cant see them and haven't plugged in the Power LED pins. Prefer my PC a silent box

You sound like an old man, Taipan.  I drain full loops for the fun of it. I have a water cooling loop just sitting on the desk, not even attached to anything. Drained twice today. Loved it.
