I think it's safe to say the PC master race dominated CES

Stick with the H80 then. No sense upgrading to the H100 unless you're currently roasting your CPU.

clyde46
The H80i has been working fine anyway. I might have been able to get a few extra MHz with an H100i, but I am quite pleased with the results the H80i, but given that I got a 1.1 GHz overclock running 35° idle and 85° under load, If I was really desperate for more I would just upgrade to a bigger case. 4.6 GHz is plenty to meet my needs.

Have you tried replacing the fans on your H80i? 4.6Ghz on a Firebridge is no simple feat with an H80i.

I am definitely considering it. From what I hear, the retail high performance version of Corsair's SP 120 fans are slightly quieter and have a better static pressure rating, so I might go with a pair of those. Part of it is also that I should probably try creating a custom profile in Corsair Link at some point, although it's a bit more piddling around than I should perhaps like to deal with right now.

It's a tech show. Hermits care more for their machines than they do their games.

WiiCubeM1

Yeah only hermits care...

When I hear hermits talking on SW, 99% of the time, it's about tech dominance, then they talk about games.

It's about 50-50 for most consolites.

The difference is that PC gamers actually have something to brag about when it comes to hardware.

More reason for them to care more about it.

Why do consolites bring this to the table all the time? Because we can build a PC that automatically makes us all virigins? Because we know more than you? because we spend less money on games than you? Ok...

I think it's safe to say that's because none of the console manufacturers had any booths or showings at CES.

EDIT: Yes, I am aware that Sony did in fact have a CES briefing; however, that was Sony, not Playstation. The two are not one and the same.

One thing is for certain, PC gaming is undergoing a helluva change still, as it has been for the last 5 years. Only it's hardware and form factor change now, which is amazing stuff.

the upgrade myth again :lol: and the 35 virgin again :lol:, that is a standard thing for consolitis to say when they have no arguments.

you know all those upgrades you are taking about are optional, if you want you can stay with a 8800GTX from 2006 and still play games with better graphics and performance than consoles...

When they say CES is usually a disappointment for gamers, they apparently are not talking about PC gamers. :D

1. Valve's forthcomingSteam Box ecosystem

2. The new Razer Edge Windows 8 tablet (along with a ton of other groovy Razer PC gaming hardware)

3. Nvidia's Project Shield android handheld (it streams Steam games from your PC)

4. And lastly, TONS OF GLORIOUS COMPUTER HARDWARE

NVIDIA only?

Look I know it's called the Consumer ELECTRONICS Show. you don't have to correct me and try to educate me what this is, thinking I have no clue and that CES is deeper than I think. I'm pretty sure I get that it shows TVs, TVs that have Double Layering so you could watch two channels at one time, Glasses that hook up to the internet, Cars that float, Cameras that are actually holo discs, whatever. It's Techie E3. You don't have to tell me.

halogreatest

Really, Youtube? Ok:

  1. Limited to 30fps
  2. Limited to resolution of the consoles
  3. Poor uploading, resulting in a myriad of visual artifacts, detracting from the total image quality.
  4. HD streams are not HD... Partly due to the reasoning above. The low bit-rate does not accurately convey the look.

As an example of poor Youtube quality. This is a screengrab of a 1080p Youtube video, so it is not direct-feed. Look at the quality:

It's understandable that you would deny upgrade costs.

U get so deep into something that you deny the negatives of something. It's called excalation of commitment.

I guess you afford those costs ok though because you don't have to spend money on women.
