EVGA Early Black Friday Sale

Starting today, EVGA is hosting an early Black Friday sale for our refurbished products. You will see products there with as much as 75% off! I already picked up a $15 600B power supply myself to use as a backup.

The sale is only while supplies last, so you will want to hurry and make your decision quick! Some of the options have already sold out before I finished writing up this article. Comment below and let us know what you managed to get!

Battlefront Graphics #ToddyHanced

Just when I thought Battlefront graphics could not get any better, well known modder, Toddyhancer has done it again! He is fairly well known for his GTA mods, but seems to have pulled it off again with Battlefront making it even more realistic. Some people say it's just a Photoshop filter, but have you seen what they can do in Photoshop?!!?

The mod significantly drops your FPS by 30-40FPS, so you would need to have a good system and for 4k, a monster system. You can supposedly, download the mod v.2 here, but I still can not find a download link. 

**WARNING** You are solely responsible for any and all positive or harmful effects that result in usage and implementation of the following third party mod.  EVGA is not responsible for any damages incurred through end user implementation of this mod.

Will games be able to get to the point of giving us this much realism and still being able to keep the game playable?  How far into the future do you think it will take?  Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!

Flash Sales and Daily Deals Will No Longer be Seen During Steam Sale Events

According to, Steam will no longer be hosting their daily deals or flash sales during the Autumn or Winter sales.

"We'll still be highlighting your top games on the front page for 24-48 hour spans, but those products will stay at their most competitive discount, before and after being featured," Valve wrote.

"It's not a major change, but it does make the sale a lot more valuable for customers, and it allows us to build sale features that recommend your product all sale long, instead of just during its front page feature.

"For a brand new release, if you can't get approval for your best discount for the full length of the sale, that's OK and we can work on a plan for that game. But the vast majority of your catalog should be running its best discount for the duration of the sale."

Many are speculating that this will result in lower prices, but not as low as the flash sales. No official word clarifying that, so we will have to wait and see.

Plans for Zed-Conomy in Killing Floor 2

Tripwire has released a teaser page for their upcoming plans to include a market for which you can buy, sell and trade items that can be found in game. Items can range from weapon skins to masks. All of the items are purely cosmetic and do not offer any stat bonuses.

Once introduced, players can find loot during game play and can have a chance to find a box. These boxes do require a key to open which can be purchased from the Steam Market. There are 6 grades of items that can be found, and only the highest grade can be found by opening the boxes. The lower 5 grades can be found in game without having to buy anything.

Tripwire also plans on adding community designed skins to the drops as well. Much like the Steam Greenlight, they can be voted upon and the top ones will go live.

The details regarding Zed-conony can be found here:

EVGA How To: EVGA ACX CPU Cooler Installation

Its time for our next instructional video in our "EVGA How To" Series.  In this video, Matthew Decker will introduce you to our EVGA ACX CPU Cooler and walk you through the simple installation steps.  

The EVGA ACX CPU Cooler was built to perform with 5 8mm heatpipes that are arranged to receive the maximum airflow, direct-touch base technology provides excellent thermal transfer,  and has a wind tunnel fin design for optimal air-flow and more.

The center section of the fins form an enclosure in front of the fan hub where air flow is at its lowest, and the edges of the fins are closed. This creates two wind tunnels that maximize airflow around the heatpipes.
And of course, the full sleek black look and PWM controlled red LED fan are the perfect match for any EVGA gaming rig! 

So if you looking for a new CPU cooler or looking to replace that stock cooler that came with your CPU, make sure to check out our How To video below on the simple installation instructions.  Our EVGA  ACX CPU cooler is available on the EVGA web store now!
