View Full Version : This place got too quiet

So how about a Random Discussion Thread? Instead of the normal take-every-thread-off-topic (as I tend to do), I feel we should collaborate it here.

Hey, if OCN can do it (and we are obviously better than them) we can too!


So, hows everyone's day today?
Or, if you'd like, post your favorite smiley's.
OR whatever.

Ati sux. Some basic stuff that I did with OpenGL that seems valid as it runs perfectly on multiple nvidia cards(including random people's nvidia PCs). But on Ati, no errors, blank screen. And I dont have such video card locally to narrow down fast how and why it goes wrong.

I'm heading back to Europe from a whirlwind visit of friends and family back home (Australia) and haven't touched a proper computer for nearly 2 weeks. Creepy.

This place does indeed seem a little quiet lately. I suspect it has something to do with the sudden (and downright suspicious!) absence of whitespider

For those of you who don't know (I don't know whether he would want me saying this but .... ), Spidey has been dealing with a bad eye infection
(both eyes). Last I spoke with him, about 3 weeks ago, his specialist said the damage may be irreparable, he was waiting on further tests.
It was so bad he was finding it even hard to read full stop.
I fear as we haven't seen him on here in awhile that he may have gotten bad news.
Unfortunately contacting him also may be hard as a result unless someone has his phone number.
I used to regularly talk with him using the forum chat and do miss our conversations.
We can only hope things look up for him and that he returns.

Currently it is - I'm just using a couple pair of AKGs... but I wanted to wait till I have the new DAC/Amp before I order the Audezes since there is only a 30 return policy on those. Plus, I'm still torn between which pair of LCDs or maybe even some HD800s or some Fostex TH900s.

Seriously, you guys don't know what mess means until you have seen my office, I have about 10 years of accumulated PC gear, boxes, spare
hardware etc. and since it has become a dumping ground, my wife has started throwing stuff in here as well.
I just bought a huge wall storage unit but I need to find the time to build it and then sort out my crap to put in it.
Plus I have a 2.4m x 1.8m Sumagraphics Digitizer that takes up a lot of space and weighs a ton.
Hoping to have a working bee this Easter Break .... if that ever happens lol
I'm still waiting on some of my PC gear I ordered so will make additions to my build log thread when I start. ;)

Nah, no way I am going to post hideous pics of my dump of an office. lol

It won't be too long, got my 680 water block the other day, just waiting for some customers
to pay their overdue bills so I can purchase the CPU block, extra 120 Rad, some more fittings and tubing.
I already have the XSPC 680 WB, EK pump and res, 360 Rad + 240 Rad and 12 Red Monsoon fittings.
I'll be cleaning up the office before building ... estimating time till completed 2-3 weeks
as I will have to shuffle it around work.

I placed orders for all the goodies you recommended, fyi. Plus a few more things. But absolutely no idea when the XSPC Titan block/backplate will become available. I even got the memory cooling bit. Figured why leave something out when I've gone all out on everything else. Can't wait for them to arrive so I can install it and put the PC on a video.

That's odd, the XSPC Titan blocks are already available here but I don't think

I also can't be bother to clean up cables just yet. I took all the chairs out so you can see what's actually going on in the room. It's a bit of a rat's nest back there, but I did vacuum all the dust out of the cables. BTW, all the marks on the floor are stains caused by my kids ;) . One of these days I'll try to shampoo it out, but if I couldn't even be bothered to clean up cables ...

LNCPapa
05-01-2013, 09:02 AM
Oh there's way more than that going on in that room. The top picture alone has 4 computers, 1 laptop, and 2 tablets (one of them has a keyboard attachment connected.) There are 8 computers actually set up in that room and normally 2 laptops (my wife had her MBA with her at the time of this pic) plus a closet full of decommissioned computers. This is severely reduced from the 21 machines I had running before I moved to North Carolina... the wife forced me to leave some machines before that move. It was nice that I had a full basement back then so there was plenty of room but we knew basements were not the norm down here.

If you click on any of those pics you'll get the full size images so you can see better - though I didn't take care to make sure they were very clear since I was shrinking them anyway.

Yeah - I've been torn between the LCD-3 or a pair of Fostex TH-900 for a few weeks now. Then I said I'd wait for the closed cans from Audez'e to come out - but they still haven't. When I saw the sale on the LCD-2 it became an impulse buy. BTW - this money I've been spending recently on my headphones and stuff was money I had saved up for 3 of nVidia's most powerful GPUs which ended up being $1k and I decided that was just out of my price range. So I decided to upgrade my personal audio kit instead. After this I'll start saving again for 3+ of either nVidia or ATI's most powerful GPUs, but they have to bring the prices back down to earth first.

brokn9
05-13-2013, 07:19 AM
I've heard the difference between them is pretty small, some people even prefer the cheaper LCD2. Also I remember reading a review where the LCD3 scored worse than LCD2 in many aspects, but there could be an individual case with slight damage or irregularities with the magnets

LNCPapa
05-13-2013, 08:16 AM
From the guys on head-fi it seems the LCD-3 is much more picky about the DAC/amp than the LCD-2. They even call the LCD-2 an amp-slut since it does well with just about anything you plug it into.

Lol since this seems to be one of the more active threads, it seems my 580 is no longer clocking down to 2D clocks on 320.49's (compared to the 314.22's).
Before I was able to get away with setting it to 96Hz, but it seems these drivers are misbehaving :/

So far the only one solution is to go back to 60Hz completely.

*I also noticed different behavior on my 680. The 680 had no problems clocking down on the 320.49's EXCEPT when Chrome was open, upon which it would stay at 3D clocks until it was closed. Needless to say, I think this seems driver specific. I have to wonder if I see similar behavior with a 780 in the future...

I went with two 4GB 770's to feed 3x 1440P monitors. Looked sweet. I was averaging ~35fps with all max settings in sleeping dogs and tomb raider. Sent the two Qnix's back to the seller for refund/replacement (different rant). Fired up Crysis 3. Max settings. Smoother than a babies arse. Or atleast my misses'. I noticed no storms while testing, but I didn't underclock.

That said, Surround is bloody awesome and I wouldn't swap it for the extra 50 fps.

I want the monitors to run at 100 Hz in surround. Do I use the Nvidia Control Panel method to do surround @100 Hz? (My Catleap drops frames @110 Hz and above). I'll stuff arround in a few months when I get another two (My seller is slow [not greensum or hulustar]).

LNCPapa
07-15-2013, 02:42 PM
The little I've used them so far I can tell you that they are a lot more "fun" to listen to than both the K240 or the Q701 (those are the only AKGs I own). They have a surprising amount of low end punch for open headphones, but the bass is nowhere near the level of Audeze cans. In fact, I like the overall sound of the cheaper SoundMagic HP100 over the Philips X1 even though I give up almost all the soundstage doing so. They aren't nearly as analytical as the Q701 which are ideal for classical or jazz, but the problem with the 701 is there is no ass to their sound at all. The extension is there but just not with enough weight.

So far I have to rate my cans in the current order:
LCD2.2, HP100, X1, Q701, K240, ..., D600, others

In case you can't infer from the ellipses I hate the D600.

Move went well, but I didn't realize until two weeks being here that I left my catleap power brick at home...

That's even after I almost left without my whole computer! Also, my mom just went on vacation, so she can't sent it till next week. Ultimate timing!

You suck Shad. Have fun in 60hz gaming hell ;) I just got back from Universal Studios this morning so I just went 8 days using only my crappy MBP and Surface Pro - I really missed my rig.

I highly recommend these headphones to anyone who has a few bucks to spare - https://www.massdrop.com/buy/soundmagic-hp100 . I paid $200 for them and I feel they are worth much more. They just sound okay unamped - but sound really good with an even passable dac/amp.

If only I had that much to spend on audio equipment :p

I just committed to a second pair of those headphones if the price drops to $150... that's how much I like them and they're some of the least expensive headphones I own.

I'm waiting for the day I can buy a Surface Pro and not hate it. Perhaps Broadwell. I've been looking to replace my iPad but despite what anyone says, nothing is quite as good as the iPad when combining Screen Quality, Speed, GPU, and Battery Life. Which is quite disappointing, actually. I really like Win8 as a concept for tablets. A couple years from now it should be a real contender to the iPad. So hopefully by the time Broadwell comes out that will be possible. Else we'll have to wait for Skylake.

True that. Its really too bad the term "too big to innovate" is true.

So my 5850 died.

I also am not able to buy a new GPU.

Time to get a job.

Quick rant:

It disturbs me how many people on OCN are ridiculously ignorant or just plain dumb. How do you even find your way to a website like OCN with a thought process like that?

Shad knows what I'm talking about. :|

Ha. Yes I do. I lurk there all the time. I post in maybe 1/20 the threads I look at. And I see every news post, sooner or later. That is the worst. No one reads the articles.

Is it just me or does OCN have less traffic than before?

Yeah... as the title of this thread says. So how is everyone's 2Bs doing? Mine is still doing great but I pretty much have only run it at 100 hz the whole time I've had it. I've seen a few posts about people having issues with them now and I also see that a lot of the traffic has moved over to the QNIX monitors. I still check the site daily so I need you guys to start talking again.

I run mine at 110hz now. Noticed I get some lines every now and then when using 120hz. Other than that they are still working good.

I sold my 2B about 3 months ago, got $150 more than what I paid for it so would have been silly not to sell it.
My QNIX is doing me fine for the meantime until something better comes to market.

Bought mine 2B from the second batch looong time ago and he is still alive. ;-)
Running 100hz for desktop and 120hz in Games... Daily usage so he had many on time up to now.

Noticed that i have also this "to cold bug". But only we the room is under 10 c without heating in winter...
But this is only if i start directly into 120 or 124 (max).
With 100hz he dont care of any temperature...

Still more than happy with it.

I have had mine 2B for 18 months now, full day usage. It used to warm up to 120Hz in 10 seconds in 15 C room temperature, now it takes like 20 minuted to get to 96Hz during the heat of the summer. 110/120Hz take even longer.
