It didn't work before? Was it hard to get working?

It was easy once I figured out what the problem was. The problem was that there was no options file and the game wouldn't create one, so it just crashed on startup. Manually creating an options file and the game started and runs. You have to run as administrator and in XP compatibility mode as well, and you need a no CD crack to get past the DRM (which Windows 10 blocks because the DRM is insecure).

Created my own PSU shroud. It's not perfect but I'm fairly happy with the result nevertheless.

Holy mother of fuck your PC is so much tidier than mine. Wires hidden under the box?

Just like mine. Powerful as fuck, but where it is powerful it is equally matched in looking like shit.

Thank you. My Cooler Master Storm Stryker is easy for cable management considering it is as big as a house, and cable management on the outside was done with a small velcro strip.

Most of the cables are indeed hidden under the box now. Pre-shroud it looked like this (ignore the tape roll):

Not bad. What actually is in there?

Reckon even with my shit state wiring I'd give you a good run for your money. I think the problem is that my case is 10 years old now and is only a mid tower not a full tower.


Also did you take a look at the new HoN patch? It's worth a try.

Setup is as follows:

CPU: Intel i5 6400
CPU cooler: Noctua NH-D14
Mobo: MSI H170 Gaming M3
RAM: Crucial Ballistics 8GB, 2133MHz
GPU: XFX R9 280X Black Double Dissipation
SSD: Crucial BX100 500GB
SSD: Kingston Now 64GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
HDD: Western Digital Blue 500GB
PSU: OCZ 500MXSP 500 Watt
Case: Cooler Master Storm Stryker

OS: Windows 10 64 Bit
Monitor 1: Iiyama ProLite X2483HSU
Monitor 2: Iiyama ProLite E2208HDS

GPU is getting an upgrade towards Vega this year. Also considering to replace the PSU as it's getting old (5 years now). And maybe a new case.

Also might sell the Noctua and get a regular cooler.

You're an AMD fan? I heard they had one customer somewhere....once xD

That's a very extensive list you have there. I'll just name my key components.

Screen: ROG Swift 9Q It's insane
GPU: GTX 970's SLI
PSU: Gold standard 850w
CPU: Skylake i76700k 4.0ghz
SSD: Can't remember but does the job
RAM: DDR4 16gb

All I can remember off the top of my head.

Various razor mouse and keyboard combo etc

ROG Swift? First model (with the TN panel) or one of the newer ones? Either way that's a crazy setup. How are you liking SLI? Heard mixed things about it.

Btw I'm not an AMD fan per se, their cards simply offer more bang for the buck. At the time I could choose between a 770 2GB (4GB was 40 more) or the 280x 3G so that was an easy choice.
Getting Vega next upgrade because FreeSync is much cheaper than GSync, sometimes even 200 less.

Freesync is much cheaper you're right. I have the ROG Swift 9Q which is the latest model. It's IPS, 165hz and 1440p 27inch with gsync so you don't compromise on frame rate like you do with most IPS panels.

I love my set up, so far absolutely no issues with SLI. Some old crappy games don't support it, but they're old and crappy enough not to need both cards anyway. All modern titles would be losing out on significant sales revenue if they ignored SLI set-ups so it doesn't happen.

AMD is just meh for me but if you're building a PC on a budget then it's worth it.

The big money is made in the low/mid end of the market, where AMD offers much more bang for your buck with the 470 and 480. The 1050ti gets beaten by the 470 and the 1060 gets beaten by the 480.

Only thing they fucked up is not having a flagship GPU. There is currently nothing they can do against the 1070/1080/1080ti.

Hmm I don't remember reading that when I was doing all my research last year. I built my PC my self but had no idea how to do it is spent weeks reading about what was the best stuff and watching videos and the consensus was that AMD doesn't hold a very large market share at all and they under perform versus their benchmark counter parts.

I've always been an Nvidea fan my self ever since I got my first PC built for me 10 years ago.

Awesome. It is good, or is there a strict NDA?

Only got to play two rounds last night, but it's good so far. It's definitely Quake, but it's clear how they're also trying to appeal to the modern crowd with lootboxes, skins, and matchmaking. It runs well, I was playing on high settings (second highest level) and had no framedrops at all.
