New Battlefield 3 trailer and Minecraft BETA 1.8!

EA and Dice released a new trailer for the upcoming Battlefield 3, and its just as awesome as the other ones. In this trailer we get to see one of the singleplayer missions, a mission called 'Operation Guillotine'. The trailer shows some interesting things, such as one person helpin another player over a wall (lets just hope thats not just scripted in the singleplayer) and the protable mortar strike. The animations on the mortar was insane, it looks so real!

What do you think about the new trailer? 

Notch and co just realeased a pretest of the 1.8 upgrade for Minecraft, and it has lots of new stuff. The focus is on adventure, therefore its called the adventure update. Some of the new things is a new mob called 'Endermen' and new stuff like NPC villages. Cant wait until this is officialy released. Havent played Minecraft for a long time, and i am really looking forward to start hosting a server for me and my friends!

What do you guys think about Minecraft, are you one of those who think its totally stupid, or do you love it like me?

Case and motherboard for my watercooling build!

So i have decided on which case and motherboard im going to use on my future watercooling build. I actually chose to go with an mATX case and motherboard beacuse i hate carrying my miditower to lan parties, and my current case is so fucking heavy. Its like 13kg without the hardware inside...

So the case i have chosen is the Fractal Design Arc Mini, which is from the same manufacturer as my current case, the Fractal Design R3, which i am relly satisfied with, except that its a little big and its really heavy.

The Arc Mini also have really good space for a 240 radiator in top, so i think its good. Take a look:

The motherboad i have picked out is the Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z. It offers good performance, SLI/Crossfire, really good overclocking and all in a small mATX board. Perfect for my needs! It also looks super bad ass!

I might actually decide to wait and see if AMD decides to realease their new processor series, and then i expect asus to follow up with some really good AMD boards.

So what do you think about the case and motherboard?

Gaming Laptop and WaterCooling!

So yesterday my brother got his new gaming laptop, and im so jealous! Its an Asus G74SX 17" with full hd screen and a pretty good graphicscard. We tried a variety of games on it, like Crysis 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Starcraft II and it can run all the games pretty good! In addition the laptop looks so good!

What do you guys think about gaming laptops? Are they a waste of money considered u can get a much better stationary gaming computer for the same price?

Asus G74SX - It looks so damn awesome!

As you might know if you have red my previous posts, i am planning to buy a whole lot of stuff since i get my scolarshipmoney soon! Now i have added watercooling to my list, and i am no on an adventure for which parts to buy! I have been looking at the EK-KIT H3O 240, and it looks pretty good! It is a complete kit with basic parts, and its not too expensive. I think i could switch out the fans and the reservoir looks pretty crappy. Also i sort of want colored tube. Heck, i might have to change out all of the parts.

Anyone know a thing or two about watercooling that could recommend me some parts?

Since this post was pretty much about hardware i will show you guys my current rig!
Im running an AMD X4 965BE clocked to 4.0GHZ, 4GB DDR3 RAM, MSI GeForce GTX560TI Twinfrozr II (epic cooling on that card!), 2.5TB of storage and a 60GB SSD. It works pretty good, but i might add another GTX560TI for Battlefield 3. Here is a pic:
