#9 Overclocking laptop monitor? in Hardware

I purchased an ASUS G751JY that i used the CRU on after reading up about it on blur busters forums. Many people were able to do this with little to no issues on this specific model. I was able to get one super cheap off eBay compared to the almost $2k 120hz Alienware models at the time. The default hz that came on these specific laptops was 75hz (included GSYNC as well), but i was able to OC it to 100hz and it was stable the 2 years i owned it. Once i sold it, i walked through the new owner on how to set it up and as far as i know he still has it running @ 100hz another 2 years later.

I would take the time to research the model you want to try it on beforehand - see if anyone has tried, what their results were, etc. Most times if you push a monitor past what it can handle, the screen will go blank and take you back to the "revert settings" screen. As HOI mentioned, going from 60 to even 72 is a nice difference...as was going from 75 to 100, but keep in mind you are still doing this at your own risk.

#27 Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse in Hardware

This looks awesome, first time I've been excited for a new mouse in a while. I wanted to love the G303 so much more but it just felt so un-natural to hold for me (personal gripe of course). The g303 sensor in a G100 series shell should be a winner - gonna bite the bullet and pre-order. I'll let you know my thoughts once it arrives.

#108 2016 NHL Playoffs Thread in Off Topic

As a Pens fan, it was nice to see them beat the Rangers after they eliminated us the past 2 years. As a hockey fan, it was actually kind of sad to see how the Rangers fell apart mentally. They usually bring it hard in the playoffs and they just seemed kind of lost this time.

#1 Selling: ASUS VG248QE 144hz w/ GSYNC Mod in Hardware

Selling my ASUS VG248QE 144hz Monitor that has been G-SYNC Modded. I had this professionally done upon purchase by a professional tech. The monitor is a little over a year old and is in pristine condition. No dead pixels, everything works great. I paid $280 for the monitor and an additional $175 for the GSYNC kit + installation. Please note, because of the mod - the monitor will only accept a Display Port cable connection. Also , the mod nulls the OSD completely - you can use either the NVIDIA or Raedeon control panels to adjust color/contrast/brightness etc. Original box, Monitor, display port cable, and power supply included.

EDIT: If it wasn't already obvious, the warranty is null because of the mod.

The cheapest GSYNC monitors start at $399 (if i'm wrong, please correct me), so pricing accordingly. Selling because i upgraded to a 1440p display and don't need a 2nd monitor. Asking $225 + shipping (US only) - figured i'd advertise here before eBay, craigslist, etc. I've sold peripherals and full systems to people on here such as pyour and pinebeetle so they can vouch for me if you need a reference.

If interested you can message me here or on steam. Thx

#9 Good noise cancellation headphones in Hardware
Karlalfahttp://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-GAME-ZERO-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00GWU8FAE

Those are the best ones I used, I had them at ESEA/I55/GXL and they blocked everything really well. I know the price isnt -80 but for anyone looking to get a solid headset, this is an amazing deal imo.
The game zero headphones are a 50 Ohm reskin of the 150 Ohm PC 350 SE headphones.
Edit: rip the 350s used to be $125 on Amazon for months but it looks like the price went up.

That's where i bought mine from...ridiculous deal.

I know a lot of people are turned off from buying "used" - however you can find the 350 series headsets on eBay for sub $100. You can buy replacement earpads for $15 bucks as well to give them that new feeling. If you didn't need it in headset form, the HD380's are essentially the same without the microphone.

Having a quality set of cans can make a huge difference, sometimes it's worth it to wait, save a few more bucks, and go for the right deal.

#37 Star Wars Battlefront beta in Other Games

This is like the Battlefield Hardline of the Battlefront series.

Pros:

- Incredibly Easy to pick up and play
- Fun to pubstomp
- Card system concept (though needs tweaked)
- Endless potential for DLC (will link this to con's)

Cons:

- No server browser (lolz) - they talked about doing this when BF4 came out and it got literally laughed out the wood-works. You would think they would have learned but oh well
- Third person breaks the fuck out of this game. As a hardcore BF3/BF4 player, learning the different weapons, recoil, spray patterns in aimed/hip fire is part of the fun and skill. Third person eliminates all of this. You can equip the e19 assault rifle, bhop all over the fucking map and just shit on people. You don't even have to be good.
- Endless potential for DLC - the Dice special. You can either pay around $100 up front for deluxe to ensure you get your quarterly (ha) DLC, or you pay $15 per DLC pack thus turning a $60 game into a $120-150 dollar game and take it in the ass for the long run.
- Vehicles take 0 skill...you can sit in an AT-AT all round and go 60-0. Even flying vehicles, which in the BF series even separated the great from the elite, take very little skill. I mean i understand making things easier but come on.
- Heroes - still not sure the point of this other than you get to see lightsabers. I mean there's really no purpose otherwise...i'm hoping they somehow link heroes to the objectives in the actual game.
- No campaign....this to me was the most shocking of all. My god even hardline had a campaign even though it was terrible.
- Class system - though the card system concept peaked my interest, having classes just makes so much more sense. This further breaks the skill gap in the game, and the concept of creating strategies to help win objectives.

I really hope Dice can turn this around like BF4. BF4 had all kinds of issues when it came out, but when the LA division of Dice actually started listening to the community they fixed a lot. Hardline was highway robbery in every sense of the term. Battlefront has that same feeling - yes i know it's beta but with the release about a month a way i can't say my hopes are high. I really do want to like this game but won't fall for this trap a second time.

#7 Help me pick a G-Sync monitor boys. in Hardware

Sorry for reviving a 2 week old thread, but this may be worth the wait.

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-088-AS

Asus PG279Q ROG Swift 27" 2560x1440 IPS G-Sync 165Hz

Looks like it went on pre-order in the UK for Q4 2015 (tentatively 11/13/2015)....so US should probably be around the same time. Will be curious to read the reviews. Apparently the monitor is stock 144hz, however 165hz is a "boostable" setting via a switch on the monitor and meant specifically for gaming.

EDIT: Just to note and keep in mind, this monitor will be priced tentatively between $800-$900 upon release.

#1 ASUS Essence One Muses Edition DAC/AMP in Hardware

Deciding to put this up for sale. I've owned this for 2 years and it has served me well. I used this with an HE-560 and HD800 for audio, and G4ME Zero headset for gaming. The amp powered them all with ease, and the DAC is amazing for under $1000. One of the best DAC/Amp combo's you can get at this price range hands down. Physical condition is 9/10, with a little scuff across the top. Everything works (all ports, etc), and includes all cables (power/USB) and original box.

As far as i know, these were discontinued in the US as of 2014 (you can still order overseas, but have to pay a premium). When they go up on eBay they usually come near the 1K range. I bought this for $899 new - asking for $700 and shipping. Only selling as i moved onto some reference grade gear and most likely won't use this much at all anymore. If anyone's interested feel free to reply here or message me.
