    Don't give him too much credit. He's off work today and probably just farming non-stop in WarZ while checking forums/facebook.
    All that being said, great job Utter!

    utter was utterly all over this one. i think i saw the two of them in the recruit channel (and now playing) within minutes of this original post. utter ftw (as infrequently as that happens i had to point it out).

    Good to see an app from you.
    I will reiterate what all the BwA long timers believe. Almost all of us are here not just to play a single game, but because we are friends and want to make new friends to play and hang together for years. And we hope that anyone that wants to join us feels the same way, or is at least able to give it a chance.

    Acc reacted to karms in Can't Hear Teamspeak While In CS:GO?   
    Windows has a default setting to enable audio ducking. This reduces the volume of other applications when Windows detects a program that is of a "communications nature." So when you open CS:GO, it reduces the volume of teamspeak to almost nothing.
    One might ask, "So how do I fix this?!"
    Farva might say, "I WANT PICTAR!"
    Oh have no fear, I'll provide.
    Right click the volume indicator in the bottom right of windows and click "Sounds", or, for those of you who don't have this system icon enabled, go into control panel, search "Sound", and click the main header for the sound section.
    Click the "Communications" tab and select "Do Nothing."

    After this is done, you'll want to go into your Volume Mixer (taskbar Icon: right click > Open Volume Mixer | Control panel: "Adjust system volume"), and max out the volume on everything so that all programs are at the same level as your speakers / primary sound device (or mix them as you see fit, this is how you make music play softer than a teamspeak which is louder than a game, etc. etc.)

    EDIT: An additional note, CS:GO seems to be EXCEPTIONALLY loud as far as shooters go. I play all my Source games at .3 volume, I play CS:GO at .1-.2, depending on who's in teamspeak. Hit console, type "volume .3", play game. Default source volume is "1".

    Sorry for the crap phone shots, but went with a friend to pick up his ferrari, and had to share this shop. Was amazing seeing all the Ferraris in one shop. Some of them are quite rare.

    Oh wait, theres another side as well.....

    And here they are SOME of them moved outside....


    An old classic and one of my favorites to this day....

    A cup car they work on and maintain....

    And this is my friends car that we were picking up. This is from last year after i had polished and detailed it...

    To say it was an impressive shop would definitely be an understatement!

    OK, so many of my friends have asked for pics of the new rig so here goes...
    First, here are the rig specs:

    ssd
    3 x OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS Edition (120Gig x 3 = 360Gig)
    http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820227714
    ssd
    2 x IntelX25-M SSD (120Gig x 2 = 240Gig)
    http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820167035
    1. Here is a pic of the stealth ssd OS drive bay with the other two vertex in the czge on top.

    2. Pic of the PSU in and the SSD bay in. You'll notice the vertical airflow here that makes this one of the best cases around for OC and multi-GPU setups. these fans are massive (180mm) and create an enormous amount of airflow. The Raven innovates with its left panel mounting and 90-degree orientation. Heat is no longer vented out the rear of the case, but rather upward where heat is most likely to go. this is why i own two of these cases and will likely never use any other orientation again.

    3. these two pics are of the Notcua HSF (which is the size of my head btw). Massive doesnt even begin to describe this thing. initially, the cpu is idling 10c cooler than my i7930 in the same case with a large HSF of its own. im expecting OC to go very well with this new hsf. Funny note, notice the backplate cutout in the pics. this normally aligns with mobos but my mobo being quadSLI didnt align with this and i got TOTALLY done installing everything except the cpu/hsf and even wired it all up when i realized this. so i had to pull everything out, remove the mobo, put on teh backplate then start again. this was 'that one thing' that always goes wrong with a build regardless of how well you plan (twiek is grinning right now as he knows this truth as well as anyone)


    4. Pic of the best gaming mobo on the planet at the moment. if you are interested in mobo design and capabilities, you should definitely check out the link above for this mofo, its sweet. Second pic is ram installed.


    5. These pics are of the 680s going in. i honestly can say that ive never had so much fun building a machine than the few minutes i got to put these three in. it was almost fun taking them out (see error above) and putting them in the second time. what i will say is that because of the size, you cannot add or remove a harddrive or a sata cable with them in and because of the lever used on the bridge to hold them in, you have to take them out in order and the size of the hsf means to take the cards out, the hsf has to come off so i doubt ill be removing them for any reason anytime soon...

    6. Pics from two angles after the cpu and hsf are added. as you can see, there is literally no room left in what is one of the largest cases around. you can also see in the first pic just how perfect the airflow is. a 180 blowing up on the hsf, two 140s adding in the same direction on hte cpu and then a 120 at the top pushing it out. essentially the cpu alone gets bookoo CFM in the passive direction that heat will move without fans. in fact, if run my current rig (same setup) wihtout the case fans even running and you'd be amazed at how much heat dissipation occurs solely from the case design / mobo orientation and then once you add the monster fans and such, its insane the amount of heat it handles. ancillary benefit is i can cook breakfast with frying pan on top of hte machine when its loaded. i actually burned my hand on the top plate (top for me back for most) of my 580s once while the temp inside the case really wasnt that bad.

    7. top view and standing side view with and without the side panel...it weighs like 75 freakin pounds fully loaded...last of these 5 pics shows the cool stickers that came with teh mobo. some may find it tacky, i liked them.

    8. pic of the whole office with the machine in position. you'll see my current dual-580 and i7-930 sitting next to her now big brother. arent they cute. also some of you get to see my office where you can see my work monitor and laptop (left) and my gaming station with the three 27"s (right) which explains how i can reply to posts and check forums 1,000 times a day while working muahahahahaha....

    As far as games, i have yet to install everything, i havent even seen it run a game yet so ill work on that later this weekend and once im up and running ill post up some comparisons on framerates, temps, etc for the nerds out there. thanks for taking the time to read my build-blog....if anyone has questions, lemme know...
    LASTLY, I CANT THANK TWIEK ENOUGH! YOU ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR ME BRO AND YOU COME THROUGH EVERY TIME. IF IT WERENT FOR YOU, THIS RIG WOULDNT BE THE CID-FLAGSHIP THAT IT IS! YOU ARE A GOD AMONG MEN. SORRY MY MACHINE IS 'BETTER' BUT AT LEAST YOU HAVE THE VERTEX PRE-WIN RAID SPEED ON ME STILL WHICH WILL MAKE YOU LOAD MAPS FASTER EVEN IF I BEAT YOUR BENCHMARKS...
    lastly... can farva find the easter egg in the pics????
