    I'm glad I found this thread and others who have the same addiction.

    The majority of times I go to LAN parties or meet up with buddies to "play games" I spend the majority of the time tinkering with their computers because I'm appalled by how much better their computers should be running with the hardware they have. When any new piece of hardware arrives, no matter what else needs to be done (especially if it is very important), installing and configuring the new part is all that matters.

    Umm, I think I may have a problem. Saw a post in a Forum that some guy was giving away a bunch of hardware for free. I met him at his house that weekend and this is pretty much the majority of what I brought home with me

    Heh and right now, i'm putting together a Retro Gaming build

    I have the same problem like everyone else. Upgraded my old logitech keyboard to the new G19s, bought the G750 laptop and now bought more memory for that today lol. I always promise myself I would upgrade the desktop at least once a year whether it be hardware side or liquid cooling side and boy do I pay. This is a hobby to all of us, an expensive hobby but a hobby none of the less.

    Where is the next meeting?
    I'm powerless over hardware and my life is unmanageable, just killed my RIVE board. But not to fear I had a P9X79 with bent CPU pins, worked the pins back
    put in my hardware from my RIVE build and BOOM I'm back up n running.......... Can I get an Amen!!

    A moment of silence for the addicts that will not find this place

    I am the same way.. just ordered two titan x, with ek blocks.. I have an entire spare rig.. formula vi, 4770k, 4790k, 2x780ti sitting next to me. I bought 6 4790k cpus since release chasing a golden chip.

    I buy every new game.. play it for a couple hours at most.. every now and then I'll get into a game and play for 20-30 hours.. last was shadow of mordor.

    When I first started, obviously my first rig was air.. I jumped right into phase change a couple months later. Then to water as I got sick of burning mobos and chips every few months. I'm planning on going back to sub cooling when I have time later in life.

    Ha, and I recently consolidated about a dozen computers down to a single megabeast computer. (And, uh, also an old uber Pentium 4 which I keep for interfacing to all my device programmers and stuff. And a laptop for casual use.)

    So much more office/shop/lab/bench man-cave work space cleared out! It actually pleases me almost as much as it pleases my female.

    Alas, I keep on staring dreamily at all those Xeon towers. A dozen GPU slots, 64 cores, TeraBytes of memory, drool.
