    qpop, do you think that going for mini-itx increases the price much over micro and regular ATX builds?

    Yup! It was a stupid idea, in retrospect. The cheapest decent M-ITX mobo available was £150. You can get competent, overclockable, voltage regulated M-ATX/ATX boards for £100.

    I am limited for storage space to laptop drives.

    M-ITX boards only have 2 RAM slots so when the inevitable upgrade to 16GB comes I will need to buy a whole new 16GB (or a new mobo/case)

    Likewise with graphics cards - if I decide I want to SLI my GTX 760 I will need a new mobo/case. I had to buy the stock card rather than a cheaper aftermarket one due to the way exhaust heat is handled.

    I can't overclock nearly as much due to heat concerns. There is just NO heat disappation, even with a closed-loop water-cooler.

    Do I regret doing it? A bit, but it was good fun, and the initial intention was that it would be an under-TV box, thus the requirement for an itsy bitsy form factor. As it happens I have since put together a home office rendering the whole exercise redundent.

    Ahr well, c'est la vie!

    On the other hand you could treat this as an opportunity to upgrade your HDD to an SSD, since they are 2.5" like laptop hard drives

    People would go to watch this, and people would watch people watching this? People are strange.

    Oh by the way, I'm holding you to making that health and safety instructional video.

    Saw something familiar on the front page of reddit.

    http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comme...llion_dollars/

    Apparently I was recording the tail end of some record breaking fundraiser, perhaps that's why everyone was so bleary eyed and miserable. After all, doing something for charity really only makes sense if it's an actual sacrifice. Doing something you would have done anyway because you enjoy it seems a bit off to me.

    But of course, they raised 1 million dollars to cure cancer and I made a mean spirited youtube video about them so I'm hardly in the best position to judge.

    Safil - yeah, I don't even know where to start but as soon as I can figure out how to make it something entertaining on its own terms I think I might do it!

    For those of you in Edinburgh, Tommy Wiseau is coming to town! He and Greg Sestero are doing Q&As at screenings of The Room at the cameo this February!

    They're 99 dollarcents, including worldwide shipping. http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/commen...pads_are_back/

    I made this .jpg from the .svg and put it in. http://imgur.com/kJMhDsf

    I was considering using the planet texture (green part) and putting giraffe camo on the black bits, but decided against it.

    Lovely mousepad Boris!

    So, now that Graham Smith is officially part of the RPS crew does that give us a claimant on the PCG Outfit? Our do we need to Wed some RPS to them and have the firstborn rise to the throne? Our could we use try and vasalise them with a big wedding?

    Our should I stop projecting Europe Universalis to the real world?

    Aah questions, so many questions..
