Hahaha. I talk to Nomiad outside of these forums. I praised the system as nice and clean because it is. I would love to have that system. I don't sugar coat things.
If truth be told. I like most of the boutique shops. I have owned 2 Alienwares and 3 Voodoos. Obviouly, I have more Voodoos because I think they are tops right now, but that could change at anytime. It sway back and forth. If a company fulfills my criteria as the best, then I annoint them as such in my mind. Whatever your personal preference is and whatever it may be that you are looking for in a system, you really cannot go wrong in choosing from one of the boutiques.
Now, I think Falcon is a close second to Voodoo at this current time. All I was pointing out was that Falcon claims that they have perfect cabling and that, my friend's is not perfect. Did I say what an idiot Nomiad for buying this system? Did I say it was his system or bust him out publicly? I care far more about performance rather than aesthetics. And obviously it was ultimately Nomiad's choice and he has a fine system and is thrilled to have it which is all that really matters.
Additionally, I claim that I like Voodoo now and I do not put a false face on. Now that changes from time to time. I see so many around here to adamantly align themselves with an OEM no matter what the case may be.
I apologize if you got the wrong impression here. I meant no disrespect.
Special thanks to Old Agile for taking these pics and exploiting them like an ass on the voodoo forums. Did you ever think maybe Nomiad moved some of that cabling around to have a look?
I make no assumptions though I do account for possibilities. Moving cables seems highly unlikely with a brand new system. And how did I exploit it? I showed one picture. one because the cabling is sub=par compared to their norm. INfact, if you read one of the repleis, on guy is a Flacon owner who hangs at the Voodoo forums and he was shocked. He is not vilified there for being a Falcon owner. I think it has more to do with how you compor yourself there. Again, the system is incredible. The Temjin ST-TJ 03 is a well thought out case and well featured; I have one in black. though to be honest, I was expecting more after i read review on it. It is surely a beter case than the Thermaltake Tsunami I am usuing on my slef-build water-cooled. I look like an ass huh?
Notebook forums rules:
Any swearing, personal attacks, or potential flame posts are not acceptable.
I think the posts against me fulfill the rule to the T - it has all the criteria: swearing personal attacks, and flaming,
Zero class all the way Agile. Total jackass move. I can't believe all the hate that goes on over there on those forums. For those that believe so much in their product, I'm amazed at how much negativity they spew forth about any other brand of computer.
I guess that I have no class according to you. But then again you don't know me and are making judgements off of inductive leaps.
Agile, wth? Why would you two-time him like that? Agile, first you say "very clean" on these boards, then claim about what a POS it is on the Voodoo forums. Who even cares about the "cabling", they care about performance.
Cabling is really subjective and really depends on the user. Sure it is over-hyped, but I can lead to better thermals through airflow, better system performance (negligible), and a neater system. Really things such as cabling show (if you did it yourself) that you care and pay attention to details. I know guys that are messy and all their belongings are like that. Now a person may be messy but that does not mean that everything else in their life is messy. That is a fallacy. It is a good indicator of patterns though. When I build a system for one of my friends, I make sure that my cabling is good because it is a reflection of me. It is about standards. Then again I spend 8 years in the Army, and care about appearance and neatness.
Some people care about cabling and neatness.
Also, if you read tmy post carefully, i have pretty much nithing but praise for Voodoo. then claim about what a POS it is on the Voodoo forums I did no such thing.
When I said "clean," did I say "clean cabling?" The system is clean due to the Temjin's lines, to the cool silver case, to the laser etched Falcon symbol, and because of the components and performance. Just a "clean" overall system that does not have too many bells and whistles, nor any cheesy crap like X-Mas tree lights or flames on the side. No the whole system is clean and the cabling is good, but not perfect, as Falcon claims. That is all I am saying. I have the utmost respect for Kelt Reeves who is the CEO of Falcon. I am just wondering about the developments at Falcon as Smooth-Creations and Flacon no longer work together as Falcon now has in-house painitiong. So that development along with basically sub-par cabling has got me worried. What things are going on at Falcon?
Agile that was really uncool. Man I can't believe you would do that. To his face you praise his computer and then you slam it on Voodoo forums using his OWN pictures? That's cold. Personally I don't really care about the cabling. I mean, what's the big deal?
Did I slam it? I don't think so. If it appears that way, I apologize. I suppose I am "uncool." The system is awesome and so are the benchmarks. I don't know how any could not like it.
Agile, I thik Nomiad deserves a sincere apology from you.
I have e-mailed him about the misunderstanding. Of all things, I hate, it is people who wear different masks at various forums.
No one has to "behave" differently in various forums. Personally, I see a lot of AW fanboys, but I keep that to myself. Do you see me flame dudes or try get them to buy a certain brand by being an admant advocate of a certain brand? I don't think so.
It is hard to voice your opinion, let alone have meritorious ones or viable ones, and it is even harder trying to relate your position without sounding caustic. Maybe I did not do it the right way here. We should all strive to know the whole story and get our facts traight before jumping to conclusions or making assertions. I make mistakes; I am only human.
I have mentioned Voodoo here because I think they are the best right now, but obviuosly that changes as each boutique changes. Unfortunately, Aleinware is more concerned now about the Dell market than gamers. Their site totally reflects that and they have gone mainstream. Maybe they will revert back to their old selves. They are alienating (no pun intended) the original audience that they targeted. Shoot, they can't even get their performacne systems out to people in a timely manner. That isn't all their fault of course, but I ascribe it to their growth and gaining popularity. People have been pining for something new, and AW has grabbed some of Dells market share. Of course, this is just my opinion and you should respect that. Though opinions can be based on flawed information or assumptions.
I may be singling out ALienware here, but they themseleves even flame the competiton. If you go to the comparison section on the Aurora SLi, it compares the Aurroa against Falcon's and Voodoo's without oftentimes misleading or incorrect information.
Bah...I still hope you have a good holiday Agile. You just caught me in a bad moment...and I'm sure you'd like to reflect on why you decided to post that picture so anonymously.
I appreciate your honesty. You admitted that you were in a bad mood and I tipped the scales for you that day. Oh well, that is life. Anonymously? Did you mean not showing who the owner is? I was just showing the contrast in what Falcon claims and some of their recent work. Over at the mutthaboards we had been discussing Falcon recenlty. This just seems like a recent developement of things happening over their. Falcon is one of my favorite systems. And I like the fact that their is competition between the boutiques. It keeps them all honest and in the end helps us all as consumers. We are the ones who win in the end.
Anyways, have a wonderful holiday everybody. Water under the bridge.
