Happy to see a board for Enthusiasts by Enthusiasts


Paradigm Gaming

Recommended Posts

Hey EHW community,

 

Paradigm here, longtime multi-core gamer and PC build enthusiast.  Was happy to stumble across this board as I read through what has become muddy waters at the 'other' board.  It was actually a mention over there by @UltraMega that led me here.

 

I was never a mega poster on the other boards, I'd always preferred to read the insights and musings of other enthusiasts and tech aficionados, choosing to post only when I felt I had something relevant or additive to say.  I posted several build logs and was mostly involved in conversations that focused on building and water cooling analytics and theory-crafting.

 

But as others have said, the waters on some other boards have become muddy and I am happy to see the focus and obvious vision here in just the short time that I've been browsing.

 

It'll be nice to have some substantive conversations to keep my mind off of the ridiculous state of hardware right now.  I was right in the middle of a custom Raijintek Enyo build when the GPU and CPU markets went to a place where gamers and enthusiasts never want to see them go.  There certainly isn't much service being done right now for the diehard and lifelong supporters of the industries that have fallen prey to the scalpers, bots and miners currently controlling the market.

 

But I look forward to being a participant in the vision that is EHW.  Look forward to meeting everyone in the course of time.  Peace

Hey Paradigm,

 

Certainly good to see you here. Someone else I know from the good old days ! I hope you enjoy your stay with us.

 

Sorry to hear you had a build affected by the mental markets, you are one of many. Fingers crossed it gets better. My self and others I know are in the same boat, it sucks but it what it is I suppose.

 

As for the vision, well I certainly have one for the site, one of those long roads that seemingly will never end, at least not with the ever changing landscape. However I am looking forward to getting the core features of the site launched and set in stone . You have to have a good foundation !

 

Look forward to seeing you around :)
