Have you lot seen these Ram tests done with i7 4790k? 2133Mhz diffence to 1600.
At home I'll always prefer a regular stereo, at the gym I like in-ears to block out the grunting and I like the way they stay-put on a treadmill. In 'the real world' I like noise cancelling in-ear items: they block out noise like the subway or wind-noise and make it easier to hear things like horns or bicycles, they're also great on airplanes just to silence the engines/wind.
- make it obvious to everyone that I'm concentrating and don't want to be disturbed (headphones do that in a fantastic way).
- blocking out sound that comes through the wall (the pub outside on top of the building next door has the music come through the wall)
- not piss off/offend my co-workers: my taste in music isn't really shared so a small stereo or even open headphones isn't going to work.
I'll have a look, tx.You might want to take a look at Sennheiser HD 25-1 II:s.
Got my Fiio E10 today and holy crap.. This thing is freaking amazing. Glad I didn't go for a sound card for the new build. Not only it sounds better than the Sound Blaster Z, it's even cheaper. I got mine for 70$. Very happy with the purchase. Using the MMX 300 from Beyerdynamic.

So I almost forgot about the Pentium G3258 with all the talk going on about the 4790k. I went and checked some reviews and... fucking hell..!
Is that thing just awesome or what? Literally the best thing since sliced bread.. Makes you want to just grab one or two and use it for small media center or the like. Too bad I don't really need one. Maybe low power mini-ITX build for summer or something?
Yeah I almost grabbed that as my next CPU instead of 4690k but then I realised it wouldn't be the best idea for heavily multithreaded tasks. It's just a great little thing and runs cool as hell too!
Taking what I said from another thread and placing it here because this place is more appropriate:
Anyone care to share any thoughts/experiences relevant to this?...im going to likely be in the market for a desktop replacement laptop, considering the Sager NP9377-S from xoticpc with the 120hz screen, SLI 880M, i7-4810mq, 2x500GB SSDs in RAID0, 2x1TB HDDs in RAID 0, and the works with the IC diamond, copper upgrades, screen calibration, etc with the 3 year warranty, coverage, and accidental damage protection. Hoping this gets me through 4 years of college gaming and such.
Of course, there is the option of buying something for half that price with like a single 870m/880M to get me through roughly 2 years and then upgrade to a newer model down the line rather than trying to go balls to the wall from the get-go

Anyone seen the proposed Windows 9 DRM?
Kind of on the fence about it personally since it would be yet another online account I'd likely have to sign up for but I would no longer have to type in a product key.

I like not having to phone microsoft to ask if they could pretty please reset the installation counter on my Windows licence, don't like having to make an account to do so. Hopefully you won't need a credit card to do so.

I'm baaaack! Just bought a KBT Poker II and KBT Race II. Super excited. Poker gets here today, Race gets here tomorrow.
Speaking of keyboards, the Corsair K70 Cyanotical sent me with Cherry MX Blue switches has definitely replaced my K90. I dread the day, when, if he ever does, asks for it back. :P
With my K90's MX Reds I have found myself accidentally pushing down keys with just the weight of my fingers/hand. Occasionally during BF4 or Skyrim my character starts moving in a random direction (which confuses the heck out of me for a second), and then I notice I've pushed down one of my WASD keys halfway down without even realizing it.
MX Reds are a bit too light/smooth and IMO not the best kind for gaming. You can do repeated keystrokes really fast (great for typing) and you can bottom-out the keys easily, but for gaming it doesn't give a clear enough indication of when you activate the key.
Meanwhile my CM Storm's Cherry Browns have been a MUCH more satisfying experience. Same force as MX Red but gives you a nice "bump" (not clicky) when you activate the key. No more accidental key-presses
All hail MX Browns!
