    Thermaltake Debuts the Water 3.0 Ultimate All-In-One Liquid Cooling System

    Third that, have had a psu and a case now and both were pretty horrible. The case especially was so cheap, nasty and plasticy wouldnt go back to them. However, I did just buy a laptop cooling pad from them for my ultrabook (lack of choice) but I actually really like so maybe they have improved...

    Eurocom Ships Panther 5, Most Powerful Notebook in Existence

    That is exactly what I was thinking. I am not really familiar how sli works in laptops but if this statement is correct I guess it means the hardware is more like a dual gpu card and not like 2 completely discrete cards linked together?

    AOC Unveils the g2770Pqu 27-Inch 144 Hz Gaming Monitor

    yawn, pretty sure we are good on 120hz+ 1080p panels. Really cant see why more of them are being launched this late in the game. Bring on more 1440p 120hz+ panels

    Drivers Holding Back GTX TITAN-Z Launch

    I think reading between the lines they are saying, shit we cant make this abortion of a product perform any where near its price point no matter what we do with the drivers.

    EK Launches a New Dual DDC 3.2 PWM Pump Setup

    I have not personally used one myself but I was going to purchase one for my loop but went with a d5 instead as nearly every source suggested that while they have excellent head pressure they run hot and loud, so assume nothing has changed.

    GeForce GTX 880 ES Intercepted En Route Testing Lab, Features 8 GB Memory?

    This doesnt make sense to me, how can an 880 be the successor to a GK104 board? it would have to be the successor to GK110?

    NVIDIA Announces Watch_Dogs Bundle

    Thats good to know was just about to drop another 780 into my rig so will wait now. Got shafted with my other 780. Pretty much a few days after I purchased it they swapped from just splinter cell blacklist to a whole bundle of free games.

    PowerColor Introduces the R7 250X Graphics Card

    "ensuring extreme gaming experience for gamers without any compromise" - now that is oxymoron right there, this is a low end card therefore gaming on it is all about compromise, ie compromising performance for low cost. Nonetheless I guess mantle can help leverage its performance somewhat.

    Arctic Rolls Out the Freezer i11 and Freezer A11 CPU Coolers

    From memory my very first aftermarket cpu cooler was a AC freezer pro 7 for the core 2 duo e8400 I had at the time. Was like $40 or $50 NZD and was perfect for me at the time as it was cheap (was a poor student), performed good enough and more importantly gave me an opportunity to get into...

    Asus ROG Maximus VI Formula PCIe Lanes

    I have found something rather annoying on my Maximus VI Formula mobo, only the very top PCIe slot will operate @ PCIe 3.0 x16 no matter whether I am using multiple cards or not. Currently I am only runnning one 780 and using the second PCIe slot due to the nature of my water cooling loop, but...

    Changed to the z87 chipset sata ports and definitely got quite a noticeable boost in ssd drive benchmarks! Very pleased about that thanks night.fox.

    Samsung 840 Evo boot windows boot lag

    Thanks for the replies, will try everything as soon as I get home from work tonight. Also night.fox thanks for clearing this up for me as that was another question I was considering, ie which sata ports are z87 vs ASMedia and is there a difference in performance! I am using the ASMedia ones...

    Samsung 840 Evo boot windows boot lag

    Was worth a shot but unfortunately no luck still that damn annoying flickering cursor!! My desktop at work is actually booting faster or at least about the same speed as my gaming rig atm, now that is a depressing thought haha. Might be time for a clean install

    EVGA Officially Announces GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition

    Yeah the cooler does look ugly and cheap but who is actually going to buy this card and keep it on a shitty air cooler with all the extra power delivery available? Would be throwing on a nice water block soon as I took it out of the box so whatever cooling setup it comes with is of no...

    Samsung 840 Evo boot windows boot lag

    Hi everyone, not sure if this is in the right place or not but I am having a really annoying slow boot issue with windows 7 and my 250gb 840 evo drive. After a clean install less than a month ago I was pretty pleased with the performance of my new SSD but after install various games and...
