i'm going to be honest, i've never before seen that happen with a motherboard and the rest of your temps look fine too.

is the inside of your case filled with dust?

i'll take a look tomorrow, but i don't think so and don't see any reason why it would be.

I've been playing Destiny 2 on the lowest settings and can still hardly manage 60FPS consistently. I'm not sure what the problem is but I suspect it's the multiple monitor setup. I thought it would be my CPU slowing me down but apparently it's running fine. What do you guys think? Should my mobo be that hot? What can I do?

The only issue he had was that the music he did didn't "feel" like Halo,

I've always felt like this was the dumbest thing people could say, because what "feels" like Halo is arbitrary and impossible to determine. Beyond that, Halo 4 is a very different game narratively to the original 3, and it needed a new sound to establish that.

Davidge's score was incredibly inspired and set the tone perfectly for 343's vision. Keep in mind this was when 343 still had balls and aritistic integrity before trying to appease Original Trilogy faggots. I still maintain that Halo 4 has the best campaign of all Halo games in terms of overall artistic merit.

It was used pretty terribly in-game for sure, but I can't really levy that against him.

It's worth taking into consideration that he's been the common denominator in all his previous failed living experiences. You guys might be best friends now, but given a few months together you could very easily get under each other's skin seeing one another almost 24/7. I know I feel that way after 2-3 days in the same house with my best friends of a similar amount of time. I really need my alone time.

Beyond that, though, it sounds like it scares you a bit, considering you've been comfortable where you are for so long, which tells me that it's probably a good opportunity to grow a bit as a person. I would definitely look into how your financial aid works more just in case there's something you're overlooking -- who knows, you could be missing important information that might not allow for you to move out.

Broly is the epitome of what Dragon Ball is. He's a roided-out Chad fucking shit up mindlessly. People complaining about him are fooling themselves into thinking this series is something it's not.

Bungie is still a good company.
I would love to work for Bungie at some point. They consistently have a fantastic art department.

I don't think there's a developer who's even close to their level in that respect. Bungie's main problems are:

- poor writing
- poor management (time, production, etc.)

They can fix the writing fairly easily but until Destiny has run its course the management aspect will always be irreversibly damaged. The engine they're working with, the speedbumps they hit in the early parts of D1's development... these issues are still being experienced today.

I don't hate Broly as much as some people but I really was looking forward to seeing someone new for a change. I suppose Toriyama will change a lot about his character, essentially making him a new character anyway.

I still cannot get over how bad that poster is, though. Everyone looks horrible, Vegeta more than the others. It's like bad fan art.

is that movie coming to the us? my friends love dragon ball

speaking of anime movies, theres gonna be a little busters movie (my favorite anime) which focuses on my favorite character

i really wish i could watch it

Yeah, it'll be coming out in America shortly after the Japanese release in December.

Also you can watch the remastered versions of the original Broly film, Bardock the Father of Goku, and Fusion Reborn in American theatres during the next couple of months.

She has to like ACDC, Tarantino movies, Star Wars, and let me tell her naughty things
okay roman
I understand the want to have things in common with a potential partner, but I've found that the differences between people actually makes conversation more interesting. Like it's nice to have those points of similarity, but music taste and especially movie taste? I feel like there's nothing there that's a deal breaker really.

That's in response to both of you but I included Verb because I wanted his take on the subject.

It's a balancing act. The evolutionary advantage to having a partner is that you effectively have two brains to solve problems with. If the two parties are too similar, the second brain is redundant. If the two parties are too different, common ground, trust and rational compatibility can be hard to manage.

Statistically speaking though, couples with more similarity have an easier time staying together.

Whoever wins France Vs. Belgium will win the cup. I'm pretty sure it will be France but Mbappe needs to show up to get past that strong defensive.

Is free-range farming a cow for milk / cheese okay?
nope, because that cow's milk is still not really for you to consume, and the cow itself still does not exist for you to exploit, even if you treat it as nicely as possible

i'd have to concede that it's much less shitty to do it that way (or at least, the idea of it is), but it's still highly unnecessary
how do you feel about free range chickens for eggs?
i feel like "free range" in general is a meme used to obfuscate what actually goes on, just to reassure people and make them feel like they're not actually doing anything unethical

good article on the subject that will be disregarded as biased and non-factual

okay then how do you feel about farmers that raise chickens like any other pet and sell the eggs

That guide really underestimates how bad vegan food tastes like. Fruits aside all the other shit is unsalvageable without animal products. Yeah yeah morality and what not but that point really underestimates just how bad it all is.

Interesting read nonetheless but im not convinced most could live off of a vegan diet without a loss in health or monetary situation.

If you think all vegan food tastes bad you seriously need to develop your palate. there are objective standards to taste that vegan options clearly meet. asian cultures have fantastic food that never touches animal product.

it's also worth noting that "non-vegan" food tastes "better" generally because it's loaded with processed sugars and chemicals to trigger your brain into wanting more of it. cut these out of your diet and you will notice the drop-off in overall taste difference between healthy non-vegan and vegan diets is almost nonexistent (you will also notice higher brain function, more energy and lower stress but few here actually seem to care about their health and just want to wollow in self-pity.)
Im aware nothing on the store shelves is free of additives. Minced meat isnt supposed to be as red as it is for example and it does actually put me off a little.

Non seasoned meat is pretty tasteless but its still better due to texture. What little vegan food ive had has been powdery, tasteless, covered in another flavor entirely or soggy.  Thats not to say i havent had anything at all i dont like, peeled carrot with lemon extract is some gooooooooood shit but i cant tolerate vegetables much.

It might entirely just be me as im very sensitive to texture. Mushrooms make me throw up the instant i bite one. Id love to get a buffet of various vegan dishes from somewhere like China like you mentioned, countries that know what the fuck theyre doing with vegetables.

a lot of the issues with these feux-meat vegan options is that they have an uphill battle from the get go, as people will always compare them to the real thing

i prefer straight unapologetic vegan meals because they tend to taste better and be better for you

U4 is better than 2 and 3, but if you didn't like the others you won't like 4.

Glad you feel that way about them. I personally find them to be the most overrated video games of all time, and a symbol of ND's decline as a developer and the quintessential example of why this medium is falling apart.

so, i just had a heated argument with a friend that has caused me to triple down on my total opposition to all video game DLC

effective right now, i'm making the moral decision to boycott all DLC (even free stuff), and this includes dark souls

simply put, i'm never paying for "extra" content that should already be on the disc, and i'm making no exceptions—that means i don't give a fuck if the content was developed after the game was released, and i don't even care if it's free, because if it's free, then there's no reason i should have to manually download it in the first place

don't even try to argue with me on this, because i'm not budging—i'm never buying another DLC package again, for any game

so, sorry if you were looking forward to that, but it's guaranteed not happening, at least in this playthrough

what happened
