    Sharkoon Announces REV300 ATX Case With Seven Pre-Installed PWM Fans

    Have to disagree with you on this, I think this one is quite unique in its layout. I know some of the old Silverstone Raven iterations have had 90 degree rotated mobo layout done successfully in the distant past, but one that opens on the right hand side AND unaccompanied by those intake...

    Seagate & Western Digital Increase HDD Production to Meet Chia Demand

    Surely, you meant 'spinning rust'? :laugh:

    Seagate & Western Digital Increase HDD Production to Meet Chia Demand

    Got it, older techs are all beneath you, while techs newer than yours are 'not meaningful'.

    Seagate & Western Digital Increase HDD Production to Meet Chia Demand

    Hey, that's just the point I've been trying to make, you just made it better, LOL. Every drive has their use, gamers on SSDs for their speed, data centers on their HDDs for their cheap capacity, and enterprises backing up on their tape drives for their security. Just because you don't use hard...

    Seagate & Western Digital Increase HDD Production to Meet Chia Demand

    Oh definitely, if gaming and loading times are all one cares about. I'm sure there's a world of usage possibilities for hard drives other than gaming, I dunno, maybe I'm just too old to keep up. Speaking of old, I believe magnetic tape drives are still being used today (because of their security...

    Seagate & Western Digital Increase HDD Production to Meet Chia Demand

    Data centers make use of a combination of SSDs and HDDs: SSD for the more time-critical stuff, and spinning rust as you called them, for storing the bulk of their data. But I get it, hard drives are by far the poorer performer in almost every metric, apart from sheer capacity and arguably...

    Seagate & Western Digital Increase HDD Production to Meet Chia Demand

    We shouldn't care because data centers store their data in... air? Yes, that's the the same sort of data centers that enable online gaming and even enable you to view this page.

    Seagate & Western Digital Increase HDD Production to Meet Chia Demand

    Totally agreed. There's nothing wrong with cryptocurrencies per se, at least for those that offer genuine fintech innovation. Rather, it is the money-grabbing desire of ordinary people and corporations alike that is causing all the problems: hardware shortage, rising hardware cost, environment...

    Sharkoon Unveils TG6M RGB Case

    I feel bonehead will probably like tolerate it if it is all white and has Type-C ports all over... haha. TBF though, what is the standout feature of this case? Or, what is the one innovation that this case offers? Or, what is the one compelling reason that makes you want to rush out to buy one...

    PNY Quietly Reduces XLR8 CS3030 M.2 NVMe SSD Endurance by Almost 80%

    Sure, pal, whatever you say. I'm sure you are way smarter than Satoshi and Buterin and Bram Cohen put together. Funny how no one else has figured out how to implement a "proper" blockchain like you did.

    PNY Quietly Reduces XLR8 CS3030 M.2 NVMe SSD Endurance by Almost 80%

    Well, either they have way, way over-inflated their TBW ratings for their original product, or they have sneaked in subpar parts on their original product without caring to update the product datasheet. And either way, it's saying a lot about how shady and unreliable PNY can be. IMHO, they...

    PNY Quietly Reduces XLR8 CS3030 M.2 NVMe SSD Endurance by Almost 80%

    Oh I agree with you totally, there is no way anything that relies on tech to run today is gonna be greener than not having to run it in the first place. But I believe I also said it was only 'greener' when compared to current PoW favorites like BTC. I think one of their devs has mentioned an...

    Sharkoon Unveils Shark Disc RGB Fan

    These fans look far too fragile to me, especially around the mounting holes. Would love to see reviewers do a drop test on these.

    PNY Quietly Reduces XLR8 CS3030 M.2 NVMe SSD Endurance by Almost 80%

    Just cancelled my order for a couple of this on Amazon. Don't like the sneaky and unethical way they conduct their business. I even asked them on Amazon if the same TBW rating downgrade will affect their CS3040, the Gen4 version, and they have replied it won't be the case. Well, we shall see...
