Going Intel, Return of the USPS.

So, after the trouble of UPS delivering my CPU to the wrong address, I finally have it.

Apparently, what happened was that UPS had left the package on a doorstep a street over. Whoever lived in that house wrote something like "delivered to the wrong address" on the box and set it back outside. Today, the mailman was delivering their mail, saw it, read the note and saw our address and decided to pick it up and bring it over. Mailman of the year right there.

I've spent most of the time with it so far physically installing it and reformatting windows. It's amazing how many goddamn updates there are to a vanilla Windows 7 installation.

So, how is it? Seems great so far. The only CPU benchmark I've done is Cinebench. What I found interesting was comparing the score I got with this CPU, the Intel Core i7 3770K, with my last one, the AMD FX 8150. The AMD chip, overclocked as high as I could go while keeping it cool, 4.6GHZ, scored 7.40. The Intel chip, running at a stock speed of 3.50GHZ, scored 7.93.

That's almost funny. Intel is just so far ahead at this point. Don't get me wrong, AMD chips are still fine as midrange and lower chips, absolutely fine. They just can't compete with Intel as high end chips anymore. I don't know if that's going to change, but I hope so. For now, I'm Intel 100%. I'll definitely update this post when I overclock the Intel chip and run Cinebench again.

Going Intel, UPS strikes back.

Remember when I said I was going intel? Well, that's happening. It would have already happened had UPS not fucked up and, apparently, delivered the CPU to the wrong address.

I've been waiting for my CPU, the Intel Core i7 3770K. While checking the tracking page for what must have been the hundredth time, I noticed that the package had been delivered... wha? They said it was left at the front door. I checked all around the front, side, back, nothing. Nowhere.

Now, before you think that it could have been delivered here and simply stolen off the front porch, that isn't possible. Our dogs are pretty damn good watch dogs. More specifically, the Spitz and Shepherd mix, Harley, is a good watch dog to the point of paranoia. You couldn't pay money for a better one. If a UPS or FEDEX truck even stop on the street near here they go ballistic. If they showed up, I'd know.

I contacted UPS via their live chat on the website and was told to contact Newegg. Okay, fine. Did that and they helped me file a claim for a Mis-Delivery or some such. Hopefully that will move along and I can get a replacement, if UPS doesn't find the original that is. Pisses me off.

So, until something happens there I'm stuck with the motherboard, an ASUS Sabertooth Z77. It's an absolutely slick looking motherboard. It should be worth the wait to see it in action, but I still don't have to like it.

Whenever I can actually get the CPU and test it out, I'll let you know what I think of it.

Music I like.

I thought I would share some music I'm fond of with you. Why? Why not? That's why. Yes.






















I hope you enjoy some or, hopefully, all of that. Just a few of my favorite songs. Now you understand the mind of DavidGX just a little bit more than you did before.

Be afraid.

Hawken Beta Signup.



So, there's some early footage from a PC game called Hawken. Not only is it going to be free to play, it looks incredible. Will it be even half as awesome as it looks in that video? Shit, I sure hope so. I just discovered that they're taking signups for beta testing. Hell yes. I signed up and wanted to pass it along.
