Yeah, all depends on what you're playing too.

Reds don't have the tactile bump so I think that's why you see them for competitive gaming and what not, fast action as they call it. Mobas especially and I would imagine MMO's too.

Typists or for work you'd want that bump I would imagine. Reds are definitely loud, specifically the bottoming out sound and these new silent switches dampen that significantly.

You get about 6 db's quieter for spacebar and around 5 for the keys.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Yes understand all that. Not like it'll really make a difference. If you play competitive you just want to make sure it actuates at the slightest pressure.

Edt: A few boards back in 2011-2012 are my first mechanicsls. They all had reds until 2012 where u bought their new green.

First Ducky I tried browns and never left the browns since.

Side note, Topre switches seem to be pretty decently popular these days.

Hadn't researched keyboards in years and see them all over the place now.

I hate reds and blacks. They're way too mushy.

Greens, blues and browns are my baes

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Only thing I don't like about reds is how loud it is bottoming out because there is no bump. Some people would put o-rings in but that changes the range of travel for the key.

When I'm playing an MMO or MOBA and I'm just mashing Q W E R in a fight it's loud as all hell and my friends pick it up through my mic even through Reaper ReAfir.

quote:

In these quieter switches the colored plastic slide at the heart of the switch will now be made with a double-shot injection molding process to integrate a shock absorber made from a rubbery thermoplastic elastomer. This will soften the impact and dampen the noise produced when the key stroke bottoms out or springs back to the top. The Cherry MX Silent switches will reduce or eliminate the need for O-rings and also provide the first effective way to reduce the click that can occur when a key is released.

They really are stupid loud. Blues are terrible to be around too.

What a pretty girl. My dog would eat those nail clips.

The SO has been working nights only for around 2 months. So my pup always liked my computer room because it is warmer, darker than the rest of the house.

Well we sleep on my little computer room sofa almost every night now. Pic is her at I think 8weeks and her now at 9months.

This is a RasPi cam I have set up for the SO to watch us sleep while at work.

This is it in the center of the pic.

Having trouble with this reproduction thing. Really feeling empty without children. Idk what we would do without this dog.

Yeah, mine ate them after a few days, and we gave up after another set. She's just got some digging genes in her and really likes to grab on to things with her paws. I just clip and grind them really well.

Have y'all explored IVF? Or surrogates?

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
We did a year of fertility and then the SO had to remove one of her right ovary.

IVF is coming this year and one of my sister's offered to be a surrogate. But she is 24 and just got married last June. We can't do that to her.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Damn, they look to be around $100ea. Way more than I thought

RX 480 8gb are going for that much too, which is even crazier.

I'm tempted to keep the 780 tis just for those sexy arse reference coolers

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
They are hot cards. Suck a ton of power. So would think the blowers are pretty loud. Idk because I never used the blowers, always had them on blocks.

Fun fact. The GTX 690 and OG TITAN are mostly magnisium so it gives them a cool finish. nVidia went cheap with the 780 Ti and the finish isn't as cool.

I posted the article here years ago and trying to find it again. It's a cool read.

Phones on 4%, will find and post.

Edt: That seems like a decent price though. Only concern is it being 3+ gens old. nVidia treats old archs badly in driver updates. They are pieces of shtts when it comes to that area.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Yea this isn't going to be my main PC thankfully. Just seemed like too good of a deal to pass up

I may throw it in my TV stand and use it there instead of my steamlink, or piss my GF off and put it at her place
