  1. Nice rig Chunk. I found this, right price range, debating if I want to be my own warranty department. Wondering why not many pictures in the listing. It doesnt look like its water cooled, whick is a minus for me. https://www.ebay.com/itm/125377900905?hash=item1d311af169:g:DsIAAOSwQWxisCnU

  2. Sounds heroic but successful. The recollection from my build was the MB manufacturer has a list of tested components that were compatible, but the list was always out of date. Invariably if you selected a highly rated component , it likely had yet to be tested with the motherboard, so you had to really on word of mouth and forum posts like you did to see if there are any issues. Congratts on getting her up and running!

  3. Due to a bug, the cockpit photo of the AR-234 and ME262 won't display, even if selected. However, here is the AR-234 photo for when it gets fixed. Its also in the vault, usual renaming applies custom_photoAR234.dds

  4. Completely reworked the random plane mechanic to give it a couple orders of magnitude more randomness (not an exaggeration) in combinations of plane types and locations. Of course, anytime you throw in such randomization you may go long periods without seeing anyone (good time to complete an objective) or end up in an OMG WTF! scenario. Keep your eyes peeled and don't get complacent.

  5. So I finally have everything dialed in where I want it. Setting up keybindings (especially in DCS) is a chore I wouldn’t wish on my enemies, and VR tuning is a beast all on its own. Overall, the build went smoothly. I did have an issue that was caused in part by being an early adopter of DDR5, and the other part was me not doing enough research prior to purchase. As anyone who had built a computer knows, RAM can be a pain in the ass, and the cause of many issues down the line. Just looking up specs and trying to find the right combinations of speed/latency is daunting. But you also have to know how your preferred motherboard is going to interact with it once it’s installed. So I went with the fancy schmancy DDR5 6000 speed RAM; which came as 4 sticks of 16 GB each. The lack of research I mentioned earlier had me throw all four of them in there like Tim “The Toolman” Taylor…MORE POWER!!! It would’ve been just fine except for the fact that I wanted those advertised 6000 MT speeds. So I enabled XMP in the BIOS like any n00b! It worked; then didn’t work, then worked, then crashed, then stabilized, then crashed, etc. This was happening intermittently mind you, and it was also throwing GPU errors in the mix as a bonus. I googled the shit out of the GPU errors first and the majority pointed to system RAM as the root cause, but I’m smarter than them, and didn’t listen to that (because I’m truly a moron!) I ended up running my factory OC’ed 3090 at stock speeds, and it worked for a couple days before the errors started again. Started going down the RAM rabbit hole after that, and found several posts on Reddit that led me to something I should have known when I purchased everything. With these new motherboards and RAM kits, the BIOS’ are in the their infancy. They can supports the speeds advertised, but only with two DIMM slots, not all four. So I backed it down to 32 GB of RAM, and then went into a 24 hour stress test cycle with everything I could find, along with some help from the Reddit folks. Now I get advertised speeds on a rock solid system, and the GPU is running happily along at its advertised OC speeds. The lesson, as always, do your research before the build, lest you start pulling out hair you can’t afford to lose. I’ll hang on to this other 32 GB RAM kit and hope that the BIOS will eventually catch up, but right now, I’m just happy this thing is running as intended. She’s a real beast!

  6. Why is that...other than the fact that social media is a dumpster fire in general?

  7. Yup, the whole dumpster fire thing. Have enough things going on without those issues, too. For example, last night on my final sortie, I reached for something on my desk (I forget what, but it was 'important' at the time) and dumped a full bourbon and coke on my keyboard and lap. And yes, my aircraft did lots of weird thing (guns firing, flaps dropping, etc) so I know the keyboard was thoroughly doused. Entirely my own issue, but just one more dumb thing to fix/replace.
