It's an interesting time to be buying a computer, and we're both on the verge of doing just that. Rym's rig is pretty close to Scott's, but we talk in depth about the what and why of our choices. In the news, OSX's handling of /etc/hosts is ludicrous, and ransomeware takes out SF's transit terminals.

The new Kraken 62 looks awesome and has swivel elbows so that's a bit of a help I'm sure.
Looks petty slick actually. And $200 is not bad if it works as good as a discrete solution.
Edit: typing on a phone still stinks with auto correct.
While I was at it, I bought the firewire card. I can put it in the current rig to test compatibility.
Life after GeForce GTX 1080: Oh, that's what you look like on max.
Funny enough Sunday night I finally went and decided I'd solve overclocking the 2500k. I had lots of trouble when I first got the thing, cuz I was doing manual overclocks an never got it very stable, and for a machine that does CAD and gaming I need stability.
But then I learned about the auto OC settings Scott was mentioning and at 4.6 GHz with just a press of a button, and rock solid stability, I'm really kicking myself for not doing this years ago.
Hoping itcan scrape by till Kaby Lake and make a decision based on real numbers. And if it's true that Kaby Lake CPUs will allow 4k streaming, that's actually super relevant to my interests.
And that AV Club spot about Double Dare has both ruined and enhanced my childhood. Good find!
Maybe it's a Mac OS Sierra thing. Hmm.
I would have tried to replicate on my Windows box, but it started itself without asking, closed all my programs, and installed 75 useless windows updates I didn't ask for and told it specifically never to install. Weird.
Resolution: COULD NOT REPRODUCE
This was cut-rate budget, fly by the seat of your pants stuff. I can *absolutely* see them hosing down some horrible oozing mold mat, throwing it in a shed in the Florida heat, and then rolling it back out for season 2.
Oh I can only wonder what horror stories are secretly behind GUTS.
Everyone presenting on Linux or Windows machines had no issue. So you'd rather have an OS which isn't maintained and is broken?
