    I really appreciate corsair's hardware light syncing dedication. So very useful for when I'm switching between OS's that I'm not attacked by a default, bright rainbow pattern.

    Ploopy Mouse

    Why is there a... "headphone jack" (?) next to the USB port in front. Is that used for debugging or something?

    EVGA X570 DARK Motherboard Pictured, Fully Loaded

    If the last few years of launches have been anything to go by, add a buffer of at least a 3-6 months past the release date of AM5 hardware to get a realistic idea of when you can purchase it. Zen 3 has only been regularly in stock as recent as a few months ago. AM5 is going to need a new...

    MSI Fanless X570S Motherboard Lineup Leaked

    Yeah that fan was the reason I picked up a B550 board over a X570 for my build a few weeks ago. I didn't need the extra PCI-E bandwidth/lanes so pretty easy decision. But hey, I like buying hardware to excess so AMD's loss.

    HyperX Alloy Origins Core Keyboard

    Nice review thanks. Been looking at this keyboard off and on, and I talk myself out of getting it. The reason is: there's no dedicated light for the scroll lock. I know, I know: It seems like a dumb reason. But I remap my scroll lock key to toggle my mic and the light is a great visual...

    Intel Core i9-11900K

    I saw a minor wrinkle with this review on the "Temperatures" section: The test setup says "Noctua NH-U14S" but the temp graph says "Noctua NH-U12S - Lower is Better". You guys should fix that, especially it's so easy to share that image. Great review as always. Thanks so much for going so in depth.

    Noctua Presents Redux line CPU Cooler and Second Fan Kit

    The article did mention it but I wanted to put a spotlight on it anyway: NT-H1 is pre-applied to the base. Not sure how I feel about that. I like using those graphite pads so not really good for me personally. But if I were building someone else's machine then that's a darn nice time saver. I've...

    Bitcoin Hits All-Time High: Now Worth Over 23,000 USD

    Disclaimer: I'm just some random dude on the internet so don't take anything I say as absolute truth. My hypothesis on the reasoning (if it's anything like last time it spiked then tanked) is that those with lots of legitimate money invested in bitcoin are looking to cash out as soon as the new...

    PSA: AMD's Graphics Driver will Eat One CPU Core when No Radeon Installed

    I would rate this issue as pretty minor myself, but good find nonetheless and hopefully AMD's software gets better as a result.

    Antec Intros P10 Flux Case with a Swing-Open Front Panel and 5.25-inch Bay

    Looks like a decent case if the price is right. I like the option of bottom mounted fans as well that stuck in air from the side, and the door too as it makes it easier to get to the filler. I probably wouldn't use the 5.25" bay for anything but at least the space is available to be used, rather...

    SilverStone Intros AD120-DC Pico Power Supply

    For 120W this is pretty big for "pico". I think about this when I hear that: https://www.mini-box.com/picoPSU-160-XT I just really like that you plug it directly into the motherboard.

    SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless

    I really like the detailed dimension info and size comparisons you guys commit to with these mouse reviews as I'm more picky about size and shape than anything else. It's been really helpful in deciding if I should give a mouse a closer look or pass entirely. Thank you.

    Jonsbo Intros the UMX6 All-Aluminium Case

    This is a really nice looking case. Only thing that really kills it for me are the screws holding in the tempered glass.

    Star Wars Squadrons Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    Oh weird. I really would have had no idea. I'm not even sure I'm using the latest drivers either. I've gotten way lazier about that stuff in my older age; if it works and performance is OK then it means there's nothing for me to use time fixing. :D
