Whelp, the Steam Link I got a while ago turned out to be good, so now I went ahead and bought the Steam Controller as well. It was on sale and I had some extra Christmas money, so fuck it. :p

And thus the gradual morphing of a PC gamer to a console gamer continues...

It was nice knowing you Sang. Enjoy your new life.

I'm not sure I game enough these days to justify a steam link. Ion Maiden is the only game I'm looking forward to.

Built a new PC, had a pretty frustrating hiccup where a socket pin was bent on the motherboard, and I'm not sure if it was my fault or not. I ordered a second identical motherboard, performed the same actions, and it worked instantly. So it might have been busted on delivery. Gonna go to the shop tomorrow and see about getting it refunded but I'm not having super high hopes...

But it seems to be working alright now, haven't bothered to reinstall Windows at all yet, we'll see how it goes.

Did you try straightening the bent pin? That's usually enough to fix it. I had a few bent pins on the CPU a while back but it was an easy fix. Of course if it was delivered to you in that condition then it might be a good idea anyway to get a replacement so long as the warranty is still applicable.

I did try it, but I think I only made it worse. I don't have any screwdrivers or tweezers small enough to fix those microscopic pins. Also I'm clumsy. But the place I ordered it from mostly promises and achieves next day delivery. I ordered the new motherboard at 11 PM and it arrived less than 10 hours later. Shit's crazy.

Today I took the old motherboard back to the store and they did end up giving me a refund (y) They probably realized I may have fucked up the board, but the profit of having satisfied customers spreading good reviews probably outweighs the cost of a faulty item :P

Pretty good board. Haven't really come across anybody having major meltdowns with it. Read that an expert mode in bios is available if you want to custom overclock. Just watch the temps so you don't burn out your caps. Keep the vCore at 1.35v

From what I hear, MSI has decent customer service as well.

I'm not really into overclocking and customizing cooling and whatnot personally, it's just one of the better boards I could find for a 1151 socket for a good price/quality. Almost every motherboard now has features I don't really need :P

It's a good choice and should last you quite awhile. It'll probably be outdated long before it ever wears out.

Just some advice - if you do decide to overclock - avoid the pre-set turbo-mode or whatever it's called in the msi bios.
Most boards have those generic  'overclocks', but they have built in fail-safes that err on the extreme side of caution. They usually end up throttling your system when you need peak performance.

About a week ago, it was ten years since my arrive to this forum and therefore to this community too. I didn´t say anything expecting all of you to come with a sort of special event, since not all days you get a Gambini on your way!!

Well I saw Steven Wilson live for the first time and I'm a bit blown away by how good it was. Easily one of the best concerts I have ever seen.
