Why Doesn't The Codex Have a Tech Forum?

    As the title suggests, there should be a forum where we can all impart knowledge that wrecks each other's PCs gives people advice on how to do stuff. For instance I could explain how I recently serviced my PC and managed to get completely silent fans using a certain lubricant and how to remove the fans from the shaft without destroying the snap ring...

    And you know I'm being serious because I could have come up with some really filthy shit during that paragraph.

    Also, since my water cooler packed up, and I've been without a PC for the past few days waiting for a crap one to turn up (that makes more fucking noise on the pump than the one I thought was pumping air replaced) we might all be able to give each other some advice to prevent what I'm currently going through.

    Like this: DON'T BUT CORSAIR HYDRO SERIES WATER PUMPS RETARDS!.

    Now if I do what I intend and create my own CPU water cooling system for very little money, no fans, and it out performs conventional systems while also cooling down the GPU - I'd have somewhere to share it right?.

    Oh, let me guess - another Codexian walled garden of knowledge you need to be a year old and capable of walking/climbing to get into?. Most of the millenials on this site probably don't know how to use a spanner anyway.

    So you are telling me that General Discussion and its 18 sub-forums are not available to posters of less than 1 year?

    Yep, and only just joined. Do I get access to General Discussion and such through credit or something then? Maybe there should be a welfare state system in place for lurkers that have done their time, or maybe lurking just doesn't get you access...

    You must be registered for 2-3 years, regular posting and at the end Dark Underlord will give you a task, like completing Grimoire.

    Most of the GD's subforums were open for anybody about two years ago, only political forum was paywalled. But you probably don't remember, because of the massive brain damage caused by 20 (!) years of lurking.

    I know nobody believes me; but I just lurked on the surface - news, articles, and such. I never actually went down the rabbit hole and 'experimented' like I'm almost doing here.

    There seems to be a general misunderstanding here - I just thought I'd post this and it would be shut down by that Crispy dude after someone pointed out how retarded I was for missing where the actual tech forum was. I don't actually want to circle the drain into the bottomless pit that is undoubtably an actual plane of hell on this site. That's probably why we get a year ... to give poor souls a purgatory to let them know what they're in for and a chance to escape. So ItsChon if you think you're paying your way in to GD - you might be in for a suprise when you end up there dude.

    You been lurking here that long and don't get it?

    Codex has changed over time. Now we have a lot of Trailer park Russians and such whom can't afford to upgrade their shit. Then there may be other wave of genuine Kwanzanians on food stamps. No matter what options there are out there, no matter how masterful upgrade tips would be handed out even for used gear by Crispy or someone else... Tech forum would lead only to make these issues to become more public, leading to civil war within Codex.

    The Science forum is good. Embrace Science forum. Look advices from places like overclockers.net, guru3d.com etc.

    Dumping the whole GD, well, that's sort of interesting idea, even though. I guess I'm as guilty as anyone reading that shit.

    Yes.... Fuck yeah! Those pixels on Unavowed would look so much better on GTFO 3080 Mutherfucker Ti (€ 2000) than on any midrange card. Then Frames Per Second, like people playing Unavowed... or hell, Baldur's Gate or Shadowrun on sub € 1000 card just must be inferior experience. Sure there ain't engine limitations, sure I ain't no shilling.

    The whole idea is shit when there aren't enough decent cRPG's to play to begin with and hardware... if they are still in the '90... they are going to stay there anyway, just let's hear their ideas if they are any good.

    Anyway, the 'tech forum' is moderated/run by our resident, Pakastani, Crispy. So you'll probably never learn anything anyway.

    I think paying 5 dollaridos so you can discuss spanners with codexers is a great deal btw. Would recommend.

    I've got potato (or something) from donating to that guy that needed a new kidney...what am I supposed to do with that? And while I'm in a questioning mood - why haven't all you Jews donated enough money yet to save that guy's life yet?.
    Too busy playing Kingmaker I suppose?.
