A few weeks ago I upgraded my entire gaming desktop to Skylake.
For those of you who don’t really follow technological news, Skylake is Intel’s newest architecture, it got released with two new processor chips, the i5 6500k and the i7 6700k. Seeing that I not only play games but also do some virtualization and whatnot I went with the i7.
I didn’t really need an upgrade, I had an i7 2600k that was overclocked pretty much to the max it could go without melting my motherboard, but I wanted to. That plus, DDR4! Yay
Anyhow. While playing Elder Scrolls Online a bit I started browsing the Skyrim subreddit, saw a bunch of beautiful screenshots of how a modded up Skyrim looks. And decided to try out my luck on modding a bit too.
Let’s just say that I’ve spent more time on getting all the mods to work than playing. Not only is modding the game to look prettier addictive, it’s not that easy to get them all to work the way they should. It took multiple hours for me to have it running stable and on a decent FPS level but I’m happy with it. For now.
So I’ve got yet another game to keep myself busy with. Playing Skyrim with mods is something that I was planning to do for ages and finally got to that point. I’m sure that I’m still missing a lot of them that could make it even prettier, but for now, I’m pretty happy with the results.
