Fallout 4 woes

Fallout 4 has been in my Steam Library for a while, so I decided to try it out today. Sadly, the game crashes straight to the desktop after about 5 minutes of play. No error message, nothing. I did the usual Google-Fu to try to find answers on how to fix it. Lots of people seem to have this same pro...

Re: I think my headphones are dead

With BT I can keep my phone securely in my pocket and only take it out when I need to change the file I'm playing or do something else with it. I don't really understand this part. Whenever I use wired headphones, I always keep my phone securely in my pocket. I guess I don't understand why you feel...

Website List: PC Customizing/Mod Supplies

This thread is especially intended for community members that are just getting into customizing the look of their PCs. Since PC Modding/Customizing websites are few-and-far-between these days, I thought I would start a thread where we can post websites that specialize in this. Places like Amazon car...

Re: M.2 drives and heat

In the review linked below, they saw a 7 degree (Celsius) reduction in temps by using the EK M.2 Cooler. To me that doesn't seem like much. I actually have this cooler on mine, but honestly I just put it on there because it looks good. http://www.legitreviews.com/ekwb-ek-m-2-nvme-heatsink-review_202...

New forums are great. For some reason, the color scheme reminds me of 3DMark results. Anyone else notice this or is just me?
Could not put my finger on it until now, yes you are correct!

Re: Poll: Where are your games installed?

My OS and a couple of games are on a 500GB M.2 NVMe. I have four 250GB SSDs exclusively for games, and do not store any media on my gaming machine. My current computer is my first without any platter drives. On my next computer I will take it a step further and will only have two M.2 drives. No plat...

Yes! This!
Stayed away from the per-release, as I do with most games that I really want to enjoy.
Very much looking forward to this game when it comes out.

Re: Best brands for hard line, fittings, and fluid?

One thing to be careful with is some Primochil fluids break down, lose color, and gunk up your loop if you have any aluminum in your loop. I don't think all of them are this way, but I know for sure the "True" line is one of them.

Re: 120GB M.2 SSD Giveaway!

i would love to win this because I was given a m.2 coolerbut i dont have a m.2 ssd lol..would be nice to be able to use the cooler. Do M.2's really benefit from coolers? They do help, as-in they do lower the temperatures of the drive a bit, but they are not needed. I have one on my M.2 simply becau...

The Raijintek Metis is actually not that much bigger than the NCase M1... Curious to compare their space rating are in terms of liters....

Re: What's your favorite case to build in?

So far for me it's been the Fractal Design Define XL R2. I won this case in the raffle and did my first real mod in it. Prior to this I had always bought sub-$100 cases from Thermaltake. I LOVED working in it, it seemed so well thought out in regards to the design, component placement, case features...

I upped the maximum image width to 640px, as 640x640 is the default large thumbnail Imgur generates. Hopefully that helps? :)

Those extra 40 pixels actually help a lot, thanks!

Image size restrictions

I love that we have this, because sometimes in the old forums people would post GIGANTIC pictures. My problem is that I am finding "600 pixels wide" is really restrictive, and am running into the error below every time I have tried to post a picture in the new forums. I know I can re-size the images...
