    What can I say? He's a really nice, mature fellow.

    Yeah, he says it's okay to give him quality constructive criticism, but when you do, he still gets pissy...

    That's a quick fast forward to the comments in my feed, just look at the top two most recent comments from motherboardsorg.... how mature and kind!

    The person who came up with the idea of half-inch deep holes for the motherboard screws in the sabertooth needs to be taken out to the yard and shot. Getting those tiny screws in without them dropping off the screwdriver took so much time. And then one of them drops off and rolls under a mosfet or something, that took a lot of finding. Anyway, computer is built, I'll try and remember to take a picture before I close it up. Couldn't figure out how to get the three case fan cables to reach to the fan controller doodad so they are simply plugged into chassis fan headers.

    Oh, and restarting the PC in 15 seconds...so fast, I used to go get a cup of tea when I rebooted on the old computer. Oh, and WoW with all settings at ultra except shadows, 8x multisampling - flight through Valley of Strength lowered my fps to 53 for about a second.

    I actually have a question that I think is really easy to answer.

    I got the H80 and have been looking over how to manage the cables because I want everything as tidy as possible. I'll be plugging my two 120mm fans into my controller (i.e. not into the H80 unit) and controll them manually. If I understand it correctly I should still connect both the molex (to power the pump) and the 3-pin (so that the pump knows the temperature of the CPU and can ramp up when needed)? I mean, the logical answer is "yes" but I just wanted to make sure as I have had no prior experience with pre-filled liquid coolers.

    As far as I understand that's a yes. I have my H100 set up with 2 fans connected to the actual H100 (push), and 2 to a fan controller on the front(pull). Don't see why you couldn't have all on a controller.

    I'd just get a new case entirely. Lol. I really don't like the 690.

    Eh, it's not all that bad, there are definitely worse cases out there. Besides, a new case would cost more money and would leave me with another empty case that I'm not using.

    This whole thing with Elric/Motherboards.org kicked off a few days ago when i commented on one of his videos. Bear in mind, i didn't know anything about him at the time (not even his name, and certainly not that he was diabetic). In this video (www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ye-PsxP61k), i basically said what you can see at the bottom of the image. Ritalin is basically prescribed for treatment of ADHD but also in some cases of depression since it's essentially a stimulant (in case you were unaware).

    As you can see in this video, he says "if you don't like this video i'm gonna come after you with this crowbar and kill you like a zombie". I despise videos where reviewers basically turn into dribbling idiots. I made a point of this, perhaps in a little more than creative way (but certainly not in an offensive way), and got the response you see there.

    It's not the first video from him that's just been plain silly. A few weeks ago, there was one in relation to Ivy Bridge, when what he showed was just a toy bridge with a toy car on it with some fake ivy around it. I let that one slip, since i assumed it was just a one-off, but when i saw this one a few days ago, i kinda guessed he'd gone from reviewer to.... well, i'm not really sure what.

    The top image is from Deltrus, the middle is from Inux, and the bottom 2 are from me.



    Now, i understand some people hate TTL's video style. I can agree that there's some points where it get's a little silly, but i've not seen a video where he's not at least acting mostly professional (or rather, as a reviewer) and i've watched a helluva lot of them.

    Me thinks it's time Elric's sponsors and those sending him NDA hardware read some of his responses to criticism. I think it's better we leave it a while in order to gather a few more responses before we send them off, as 4 really isn't gonna be enough to convince anyone to ditch him.

    Aye, the most TTL will do is if you ask him a dumb question, he might call you a n00b in a joking manner and say "go look at it again," like he did when I asked him how to make certain parts of MSI Afterburner's info show up on the screen while I'm in a game, I thought it was funny and took no offense. :P He's also joked about it in his videos where he has said something along the lines of "and then you can go around and say 'I got called a n00b by TTL!'"

    But seriously, I kind of almost wonder if the actual guy in motherboardsorg's videos is actually the one doing the responses on youtube, these are just so damn extreme and different from how he behaves (for the most part, anyways) in the videos that I'm not 100% sure it's him. Yes he acts silly in a lot of videos, but he never shows any of his anger from people who have made comments, idk, guess we can see if he makes a new video calling anyone out or whatever.

    Ask and see if you can get anything from Noteworthynerd because I know he said he had like 8 gmail accounts. lol

    Wait, hold on. Ritalin kills diabetic people? Wut.

    This is pretty much a steal with how shitty the 7750 and 7770 are.

    Hmm...

    /discuss

    (I think the features/layout are pretty much perfect (for me), and I really like the 2.5" SSD mount behind the motherboard tray.... but it's kinda ugly, especially the side panels)

  15. #455
    It's a neat enough case by the looks of it, but I'd probably leave the sidepanels off and just throw filters on the fans themselves...
