    I look forward to this place becoming just as good of a source of information as the originator boards. Hopefully, some young potential stumbles upon this place and gets inspired to build just as much stuff as some of us. Then they realize how much money we've spent on this.

    Oh god, the money I've spent because of these boards...

    It's an escalation game. When I started all I wanted to do was change the buttons on my T5 HRAP for PS2. Now I own a 3D printer and build my own sticks 100% from scratch. I don't even use store bought chassis anymore...

    ...please send help.

    I just spent $200 at Home Depot and I'm not even done yet. The building bug is too real.

    I've been considering one of these for a long time:

    I can never justify it though...got a big TV and 2 PCs already. I'll have a better experience just playing on those...

    So Gatorcade possibly gave me the worst customer service I ever had for a online store.

    What about when I bought stuff from akihabarashop years ago and they never actually sent me anything? Is it worse than that? It's almost 10 years later and I'm still waiting. :grimace:

    Well. Guess I know who to avoid from now on.

    Not to mention answering customer support requests on mobile with no sig -- real professional.

    You think that's bad.

    I watched 1 youtube video - ONE! - and the next day I somehow bought an i7-5820K, X-99 motherboard & 16gb DDR4-3000.

    Tech youtubers, man.
    Those men are in league with Satan.

    Heh. There's a reason I stay away from hardware reviews when I've already got working rigs...

    Personally it's not the fact the message sent frm. a phone, bu5 how the whole thing was handled

    Instead of "sent from a iPhone, there should be done professional signature, like Pedro Anamas Proprietor of Gatorcade or something to that effect.

    I keep looking at new cases & every time it's "but my current case is fine..."
  • misterBeemisterBee Posts: 65Administrator Level 3
    I only build mini ITX rigs. I can't get my systems any smaller. It cured the case bug for good.

    Man I thought modding sticks was bad.

    Nothing worse than spending 3hrs building up a PC only for it to fail to POST
    Now I'm afraid I've damaged my GTX 980 Ti :anguished:

    What CPU? If it has integrated test with that first. Use one stick of RAM and CPU only -- see if it will post with just that.

    Hmm that's gonna be tough then -- don't have any old GPUs lying around to test with? =[

    What makes you think the 980ti is fried?

    Dumb questions, but is your PCI power cables properly seated in your 980ti?
