Re: Badminton

And I thought the cricket crowd here was odd. :wink: I've seen a bit of it here & there and it's just gob-smacking to see that what I think of as an "everyone can play" slow-speed picnic game is actually the fastest racquet sport there is. Well I'd forgive most people in the Americas ...

Re: Badminton

Hence the "or the web" part of my question. You could catch it on YouTube from some dedicated uploaders although you'd obviously be watching something that took place a month prior or something like that when the video of the tournament finally uploads. Sometimes they upload rather quickly...

Does anybody here on the TR forum religiously (or just regularly) follow badminton tournaments on TV or the web?

Re: Crysis 2 :(

In terms of visual fidelity, PC gamers aren't getting anything better than its console counterparts. Very minimalistic in terms of how much you can tweak the visual settings. Personally I wasn't really impressed with the multiplayer demo. I thought that 12 hours of single player would make up for th...

Re: Forcing constant voltage via MSI Afterburner

I've overclocked the card just a tiny bit from stock. But I'm noticing that the card doesn't sit well with the settings despite it being a mild overclock. It BSODs everytime it puts the display to sleep. I noticed the option to force constant voltage and since checking the box I haven't had any prob...

Forcing constant voltage via MSI Afterburner

Hi guys,

There's an option within Afterburner that allows for forcing constant voltage. I never had it checked before and I'm wondering if that will have any adverse effect whatsoever if the option is checked.

Thanks! :)

Do you think de-glossing the Razer with a scour pad would be successful? I don't think I could live with that gloss finish with how I treat my keyboards. Would be interested to see if it is possible. Personally I don't want to try it. Might end up bricking it or something. I speak for myself of cou...

Re: Razer Blackwidow

Initial impressions: -Packaging was tiring, for whatever reason. Maybe I was tired. -It is louder than the G15, but not much. Space feels just a tad stiff, but the keys overall are lighter. It's not offensive though, and is a dream to type on as it should be. -The key back-lighting is superior to t...

Re: Mechanical Switch Keyboards

i am curious why you have no interest - or don't like - the Steelseries 6/7. Not to pick an argument but because I'm considering buying a new board myself. I'm guessing it's the weird layout of the keyboard what with the oddly sized backspace and extra large enter key. I prefer my keyboards to have...

Although I must say since this keyboard is labeled as a gaming keyboard NKRO is a must espec...

On the Blackwidow you mean? Only way to find out is to test it on the keyboard itself I guess.

Re: 5870 bottleneck?

What are the full system specs? I would highly doubt a current gen CPU would be bogged down by a 5870, that card is pretty fast. The entire system should not have a problem running anything you can throw at it.

There might be something wrong with how the game displays proper ping in game and in the ga...
