#2 Keyboard double key strike in Hardware

I've managed to break the "A" key on mechs with both Cherry MX Browns and Gateron Reds (Cherry MX Red clones). I'm not sure how I did it. In both situations I took the keyboard apart and swapped the faulty "A" switch with the near-virgin rctrl switch, as I never use that key. I also swapped to RDFG movement in fps games too see if I'm breaking keys through gaming or normal typing.

TL;DR same issue here, trying to figure out a permanent solution.

https://www.massdrop.com/buy/kbparadise-v60-mini-gateron?mode=guest_open

Just joined this drop on Massdrop, 60% mechanical with Gateron reds for $65+$10 Shipping +$6 taxes (California). I've seen reviews saying these are very good reproductions, and in several places seen people saying that these seem to be higher quality than the original cherry MX keys they imitate. Will post a review when it arrives.

Right now I'm on a Das Model S Ultimate with Browns. It's a good solid board that I've been using for the past 3 and a half years or so, but I've wanted to try a 60% board and MX reds for a while. This is the best deal I've seen on something that meets both those requirements while still having a well thought out function layer system and not looking pants on head retarded.

#15 TF2 SoCal Series #2 in LAN Discussion

I want to come to this event, willing to play any class on a team that is actually going to play.

Decent at scout, okay at roamer, mediocre at demo and pocket, I have no idea if I'm a good med or not, but willing to try.

Also, any South Bay residents looking to carpool?

Do you guys have any suggestions for the parts not marked as already purchased? The first system will become my daily, with the goal of it being as quiet as possible without sacrificing a large amount of price/performance, with additional noise reducing parts being purchased later if I decide they're necessary (quieter fans, a Scythe Kotetsu, some sound dampening foam I'll install inside the case etc). The second system is being sold to someone I know for $420 + the listed Not Yet Purchased parts, so the savings on those parts will be passed on to them.

#5 Pub class-ratio balance system in TF2 General Discussion

Your system would never be implemented with it's current class values on any server purely for the fact that a highlander team would be breaking the points limits.

Highlander = -3
6v6 with roamer offclass (a la harbleu -> spy; mackey -> sniper) = -2

Setsul#503 RE:#502

What was the motivation for switching from a B85 to a Z87 MB for the second build? As far as I know the Xeon isn't able to be OCed, I don't plan on running Xfire or SLI, and I don't see a major difference between the two boards otherwise.

The power bill is not a concern, the undervolting and underclocking would be more for limiting the noise the fans make. Maybe even trying to go fan-less, but that's a discussion for another day, not a concern at the moment. If you think turning my old build into the server is not worthwhile, I'm fine if you only recommend parts towards my new build, as that is what is more important to me.

Sorry for my ambiguity in my performance requirements. I want to get 240+fps using minimum graphics configs and 1680x1050 resolution in 9v9 TF2, 10v10 CSGO, and 5v5 Dota2. I usually only play 6v6 in TF2 and 5v5 in CSGO but I figure setting the bar at 9v9 and 10v10 means I'll still be able to play dm and surf enjoyably.

I've had two 750TX, the first one died on me in the middle of the summer (thankfully didn't damage anything) so I sent it in to Corsair and they sent me back a free 750TXv2. A blessing in disguise now that I look back on it?

#498 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Hey so I have a midly strange situation

    *My current build is from 2010/2011 dec/jan +an SSD from July 2014
    *I want to turn my current build into a mediaserver/netflix box (undervolt and under clock everything etc)
    *I own a 120hz monitor, I want to get 241+ fps in TF2, CSGO, and Dota 2 at 1680x1050 on my new build, not afraid of and not a stranger to overclocking or specialty cooling
    *I have no other requirements for my new system, all I will do with it is play these three games. No budget but want to keep it low as possible

My current build is:
CPU: Phenom II x6 1090T OC'd between ~3.6ghz and ~4.2ghz depending on time of year because no AC
MB: MSI 890FXA-GD65 (MS-7640)
RAM: G.Skill RAM : 8192 MB DDR3 Dual Channel 666.7 MHz (3:10) @ 7-7-7-21
Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F1 1tb
Storage: Crucial MX100 240gb
GPU Radeon HD 6850 1gb
Case: Coolermaster HAF 912
PSU: Corsair TX 750W

My vision is reusing the SSD, PSU, case, (and maybe RAM, I don't know if there have been advances in RAM since I bought mine, CL7 is nice to have in a gaming PC over a server I think) in the new system, and replacing them in the old build with something cheap and more appropriate for a media server ex. more efficent and lower power PSU, smaller case, slower RAM, foregoing an SSD. I'm not sure if I could reuse my GPU, but I have the feeling it couldn't keep up with a new processor as it is nearly 5 years old.

TL;DR recommend me an efficient PSU, ATX case, and RAM to go in my soon to be server PC, and a CPU, GPU, MB combo to go in my "new" PC

I don't care if the server ends up having more raw powerf than my new system for general computing, all I want are silky smooth frames.

#4 Political Opinion and the World Cup in Off Topic
brownymasterMake sure you identify all your sources. This poll will have severe selection bias regardless but make sure your audience knows that it'll be mainly representative of people who respond to random polls someone posted on tf.tv. Unless you get it from other sources too, in which case it's a union of the two.

Thanks! I'll keep that in mind when I'm doing my write-up for my teacher. This isn't anything serious, just a little project we were assigned in my summer school US Gov class, so I'm not too concerned with having selective data.
