After an Overclocking Disaster, I finally got My computer put back together. I guess I pushed my Sandy Bridge a little too far and it Blew out. It was only 9 months old. Both the chip and the motherboard had a big brown burn spot. So I replaced those 2 components with an Ivy Bridge CPU and MB and got a new power supply too, the one I had was going on 6 years and I figured since I had to take it all apart, Id do that too.

Anyhow, after ordering the parts, installing the components and re-installing the operating system and all my sim stuff & Games, I'm finally back up again. I'm not overclocking this one. (I don't think my marriage can stand another computer problem) It seems to be running plenty fast as is anyway.

Here are some random shots I took In X-Plane 10 to give it a test spin. Still some tweaking to do, but I am happy with how everything is running.

Its a default plane that came with XP10 Beta. I don't remember what Update added it, but if you have the Beta Check mark ticked, and do an update, you should have it. Its listed under (VTOL)

Hello Scoobe,

These are one of your best sets of screenshots as of this date! X-Plane should hire you to be their PR chief!

Love the WACO, and i downright desire one in real life. What an amazingly beautiful bird!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Beautiful shots! smile
I recently bought X10 but have just barely got my controllers operating correctly. Could you tell us what add-ons you're using?
Thanks!
