Consider myself lucky

Sometime in November of 2020, a couple of months after the launch of Nvidia’s latest 3000 series GPUs, I saw someone on Carousell trying to sell an RTX 3080 from a pre-built gaming pc that he bought. He wasn’t interested in using it. Despite being in a prebuilt, with the GPU used and fixed in... Continue Reading →

Asus TUF RTX 3080 initial impressions

I am truly grateful to be able to get my hands on a brand new RTX 3080 GPU. Ever since its official launch more than two months ago, these things are still very rare as demand is still outstripping supply. It is so rare, that people are scalping these things and selling them at way... Continue Reading →

Planning my next gaming rig

My next gaming rig will not come so soon. In order for me to make the upgrade, two things must happen; the release of the Ryzen 4000 series desktop CPUs and Nvidia (or AMD) release of their next generation GPUs. Will it happen this year?

Getting a new pair of bookshelf speakers

Back in 2016, I bought the Audioengine A5+ powered bookshelf speakers. I love it. It’s punchy with a right amount of bass and size that is perfect for any computer desktop system. Fast forward today, it is starting to show wear and tear. The left speakers are muffled, especially at higher frequencies. The sound output... Continue Reading →

Upgraded my Octavius Maximus Build

Back in the beginning of 2019, I swore to myself (well, rather it was a New Year’s Resolutions that I wrote down) that I will impose a moratorium on PC upgrade. I broke that moratorium and went ahead in upgrading my PC cooling to an AIO build. I bought the Thermaltake Water 3.0 240mm ARGB... Continue Reading →

The Octavius Maximus Build!

When the new Ryzen's Zen+ Ryzen CPU was officially launched last week, I pulled the trigger to get their latest 2700x, 8C/16T CPU with an accompanying motherboard.

Some clarity to my PC upgrade path

For some weeks now I have come with multiple iterations on my new gaming PC rig. Each iteration is an idea as to how my upgrade path will follow. Some of which became more expensive, some of which became cheaper. Each iteration follows a different idea of what it means for me to upgrade. What... Continue Reading →
