Project Avachinsky - A brief history

Few years ago, a young man had a very old PC. A PC that can do nothing but to lag and to crash. Being able to watch newest game gameplay on the internet was a bliss for him. But inside, he envy those people who were able to play those games. So he set a dream, that one day he will build his dream PC and play all the new games that's coming out, being one with its community, and to show the world that he's able to catch his dream.

Lel that was cliche. Although most of it are true. So yeah, I used to have a very old PC, and some of you guys might have witnessed how old it was (especially you, Tactical_Injustice). It was a Pentium 4 PC, with only 2 gigs of RAM (it was upgraded, before it only had 1 GB), 320GB hard drive (which I'm still using now) and Nvidia GeForce 9500GT (my first upgrade ever). At some point I bought new power supply (Xigmatek NRP-VC403) because my OEM power supply couldnt handle the graphic card. It was build around 2006 I think, and lasted until 2014 with minor changes over the years. With that rig I was able to play TF2, BF2, and COD 4 on an okayish frame rates, and most of the time low to medium settings. Can it run Crysis? Actually it could lel. But yeah on some level the framerate was unpleasant.

Around mid 2014 I finally able to majorly upgrade my PC. With shallow knowledge I had about PC parts, I decided to go with AMD A4-5300, thinking that because it's dual core it should be comparable to i3 (which is not, I know nothing back then XD). I also bought cheap motherboard and RAM that I'm still using until now. With that PC, I saw a major improvement on TF2, and it was a bliss for me. But then I tried Battlefield 3, and then I experinced major lags all over the game. From that point I realized that my computer is still not good enough, and I did a deep research ever since. Oh and at some point my 9500GT died after extensive modding of Skyrim lel.

Late 2014, I've got myself a new processor (and graphic card), AMD A8-5600K. I know it's not particularly good, but it was a major improvement from A4-5300. Entering the quad-core level performance, I'm amazed with the fact that it could run some newer games like Watch_Dogs, AC Black Flag, Battlefield 4, and some other games with medium settings and playable framerate over 720p resolution, that is also without any discrete graphic.

So far this year, I've bought some minor stuff like cooler (Raijintek Pallas), case (Corsair Carbide SPEC-02), and fan hub (ThermalTake Commander FX) that I'll cover two of them below. My next target is to get a new graphic card, probably GTX 960 due to power supply limitation. I hope I can see this card sitting on my rig late 2015. Wish me luck!

Well I think that's all the not really brief history about my PC, Avachinsky. So yeah, I've been through a lot of things. And I'll never stop upgrading this PC, so I can fulfill my dream. Stay tune for more things about Avachinsky XD

Heyyo, this time I'll cover my two recent purchase for Avachinsky, which consist of Raijintek Pallas (air cooler) and ThermalTake Commander FX (Fan hub). If you want to build a pc or buy some pc parts, I suggest you to take a look at these two things :>

Raijintek Pallas

Before I bought this, I was deeply dissapointed with AMD stock cooler. I mean cmon, stock clock speed with stock voltage can reach thermal margin under 1 degree C with Prime95 test? And the sound was loud like a jet engine. I can hear the fan spinning even when I wear my headphone. Then I realized that I need a new cooler.

(Thermal margin is the gap between the processor temperature and max temperature, used in AMD Overdrive software. So yeah, my processor was only under 1 degree C from its maximum temp)

At first this wasnt my choice. My choice was Cooler Master Hyper D92, a small cooler with exceptional cooling capacity and badass looking. I didnt choose Hyper 212 and its spawns because it was too big for my SPEC case, although some legends said that some people able to fit it in their SPEC case. Back to the topic, when I went to my local computer mall and they said all the Hyper D92 were empty. I checked many shops and all of them ran out of stock.

On the last shop I checked, I decided to go with another cooler. I tried to make quick choice, and saw this Raijintek Pallas low profile cooler, and they added 'Germany brand' after the cooler's name. Without thinking too long I decided to get this cooler, thinking that 'if it's Germany it's good'. Top kek.

At home, I was dissapointed with the installation. It was a pain in the hand, and literally pain in the hand beacuse the heatsink cut through my finger when I tried to adjust the mounting hole that wasnt positioned right. I had to do many trials and errors to get the mounting holes right. After that, another problem came. The fan clip was too short, I was only able to clip only one before I put brute force and pliers into the fight. And finally, because the heatsink was too big, it blocked the 4 pin cpu_fan slot. I had to blindly plug it and it was so damn hard to do. But when everything was placed correctly, I ran the PC and checked the temp. 28 degree C of thermal margin with Prime95 test. Damn that's awesome. Then I overclocked my processor from 3.6GHz at 1.3v to 4.2GHz at 1.34v, then tested it again. 20 degree C of thermal margin. Daaaaamn that's even more awesome. So yeah, I think it's worth it. I recommend this cooler for anyone who needs small cooler, tho remember to plug anything on the motherboard (including the included fan) before installing the heatsink.

ThermalTake Commander FX Fan Hub

Next is ThermalTake Commander FX Hub. This thing does a simple job, connecting all of your fan into one hub and then power it with SATA cable from power supply. It could contain up to ten 3-pin fans, and it also has blue lighting in the middle. The packaging contains velcro tape so you can mount it basically everywhere inside your case lel. Installation is simple, and the price is quite cheap also. The downside maybe only its blue LED light, but whatever. It's not that bad. I recommend it for people who has so many fans (pun intended?) and their motherboard does not support too much fans, or for you who likes to manage things.

So yeah, it was pretty long but I hope you enjoyed it lel. We'll meet again next time I get new parts for Avachinsky.

Report abuse Game Ideas and Random Things

According to a legend, Three years ago on the April Fool's day, a random fool joined this site. From that day on, this fool wandered around this site everyday, rekting every hardscoper blokes on his sight. He was also rumored to be a pleb ranking illoominati member, an avid katana collector, and a well known MLG (Major Lag Gamer).

Today, many people still believe this random fool still lurking on this site, 360noscoping whoever crosses his path.

Eyy b0ss.

Gibe da pusi b0ss.


k stop.

So I'm here to share something with you guys. I want to share my 'game ideas'. Most of these ideas are silly, so if you want to laugh help yourself xD

Leeeeet's begin

  1. A zombie apocalypse game, similar to DayZ, but! Set in metropolitan city. Why? Why not. This one has been in my mind for quite long time. Set after nuclear exchange between superpower countries, the whole northern hemisphere suffered nuclear winter. This nuclear winter spread as far as equator, which caused the whole city's temperature drop drasticly, while taking many lives. In the middle of this chaos, a zombie outbreak happened. This is where the game take event.
    Not only you have to survive zombie outbreak, you also have to survive the winter. It's not just that, the zombie has unique ability: hive mind. This way, it wouldnt be only just the horror of stupid zombie chasing you 24/7, but also the psychological horror. Before you encounter zombies, you'll hear somekind of noises and have some visions, then suddenly a zombie out of nowhere.
    Also the zombie fighting wouldnt be only just shoot or slashing all the time, there are quick-time events to make the combat has more diversity. There are other things I would like to add, but I'm too lazy to write it so I wrote the important ones.

  2. (Again) a zombie apocalypse game (I know... I have limited creativism), set in victorian era London. This idea still wip. But somehow it feels like Order 1886 with less cutscenes.

  3. Assassin's Creed in Indonesia. Yes, I know. It's like the dream of every Assassin's Creed fans around the world to have AC game set in their country. I'll add one more to it >:D
    Fyi Indonesia was settled by the Dutch for like 350 years. An AC game set in Batavia would be great, and since Indonesia is an archipelago country we can also add naval battle to it.
    For main character, I've been thinking that character from Dutch side would be kinda good, outfit wise (well you know, Indonesian outfits in that era is ehh.... welp let's just say it's not pretty good). Born half-Dutch half-Javanese, this assassin saw and felt the suffering of local people, and in the end fight with them. I couldnt think the right era to be set tho, since major fights happens mostly outside Batavia.

    Anything related to Precursor artifacts could be linked with Borobudur temple or somewhere in Padang, since both two places were shown in Altair's pieces of eden map.

Welp I think that's it for now, maybe if I have other game ideas I'll share it.... or not. Whatever.

Have a nice day!

Because the placement of ads on ModDB prevents me from getting a good bottom header, I have to take a leap of faith to make over my page.

rip in pepperoni, my beloved header.

Oh hi there, it's me Alan or well known as PetrukStark. As you can see here, I've done a make over for my page. It's a pain in the butt, but I think kinda worth it. At least now Desura and IndieDB wont have obstructive header.

Well guys, prepare your popcorns and soda. You're about to watch read the short history of me on this website.

The Beginning of an Epic Journey

Three years ago, I was trying to find a way to play cracked COD4 multiplayer. I didnt know it was possible to play COD4 multiplayer with cracked version, so I went on the internet to find if I can play with bots. I thought it wouldnt be possible, but I did wrong. I discovered a great mod called PezBot, which already dead by now. It was a great mod, but comes with much flaws. I decided to share my suggestion to the modder, and voila! I joined ModDB. And that was the time when I sold my soul to ModDB.

First Submission

When I joined ModDB I already know basic things how to edit ENBSeries, and ended up made this. I was so hyped about it, up to the point that I'd smile like crazy bloke everytime the download increased by 1 person. It was also feels good when I tried to help someone that troubled with my mod, and start from there I started to stroll around the ModDB, until I found the Battlefield 2 mod section.

Me, MrRious Hardcore Mod, and the Skype

Battlefield 2 mod section was a paradise for me. There were so much Battlefield 2 mods that I can pick off. But because I'm kinda perfectionist, none of the mod would satisfy me. I ended up compiled some mods into one private mod.

At some point I also uploaded addons for Battlefield 2 like ENB and MrRious Tweaked Soldier, which the later is the foundation of a greater mod that I'll made later. From the ENB part, I found a friend from my own country, Simcardo (at this time he was talking normally, and formally which I find funny now). From this point, together we founded (or was I alone?) MrRious Hardcore Mod, with him as texture artist and me as a coder.

As the time goes, we added new features that, well I can say different from the others. Also Simcardo introduced BC2-style HUD on my mod, that now is adopted by Alpha Project. Time goes on, I started to stop my modding because I was bored with BF2, and after reinstalling OS I stopped modding entirely. That time I spent making the mod, interacting with users, making new contents, etc it was a good time, and I miss that time actually :')

Simcardo also introduced me to something that really changed my life: Skype group. First time I went there, I was really innocent and shits. I avoided 'dirty' talks and defended something that is not entirely right. And stupid things also. Lel. I also had a really bad english at that time, but they seems okay with that so my bad english is stuck with me until now xD

Time goes, and my life changed. I'm more open to other point of view, I've got knowledges that I wouldnt know if I havent been there, I also got support from them when I had problem with love and life. There are great people in there, like _w_ and Bisszy, who have minds that are incomprehensible by normal human, Tactical_Justice whom I've met in real life, Peacekeeper, KinQQz, Gumwars850, Frosthound, Rick, Akmal, Dity, and other great guys. Those guys changed how I think and Those guys rocks!

In the end, I want to thank you to ModDB for changing my life. If werent for this site, I wouldnt have all these good memories. Welp then, thank you and congratulations on wasting your time for this long, unimportant grumps. See ya! :p

Anyway dont hesitate leave a comment or PM me if you want to talk about smthg with me. Selamat tinggal!
