    Dream Machines DM2 Supreme

    The mouse design is basically a copy of the Mionix Naos (3200, 5000, 7000, 8200, QG) line. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/mionix-naos-qg/3.html It even copies the Mionix logo around the optical sensor. The major difference is the internal components. With the exception of Naos 7000 I've...

    Mionix Announces the NAOS 8200 Gaming Mouse

    Seems this one is without the weight system that they have in in NAOS 5000. Pricing wise this will replace the 5000. Glad I haven't bought my 3rd 5000 yet.

    Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 Arriving Next Month

    Win 7. I'm a PC game dev and gotta test my software. :toast: You do know why its the most widely used. Being shipped with an OS doesn't mean it is any good. But it should be good security wise due to high usage but the company doesn't have a very good track record in that matter. And as long...

    CyberpowerPC Debuts its "Fang Taipan" Gaming Notebook

    Thats the first time I've heard of Onkyo audio in a PC. Nice! All its lacking is 3D Vision 2 LCD and it would be an extreme gaming laptop.

    Sony Announces the MDR-XB Headphone Range

    I have 2 pairs of the older generation MDR-XB700's. Specs look slightly better (5g weight diff) on these but I fear that they will not be as comfortable since they are on ear instead of over the ear. First generation XB headphones look like two monster truck tires on your head especially the XB1000.

    Samsung's Award-Winning Series 9 Monitor Now Available

    I remember the stand for Samsung's similar models being quite wobbly. For over a grand I'd expect it to be stable.

    Fractal Design Launches New Fan Controller, the Adjust108

    Lamptron FC9 also has 50W per channel with 4x ports. Although its quality does not look that great so I never bothered to get one. But this one looks mighty clean but thats just a CAD drawing. We'll have to see what it really looks like when it ships.

    AMD Readies Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition

    You obviously don't read TPU enough: http://www.techpowerup.com/164133/Intel-to-Push-for-Higher-Resolution-PC-Displays-Arrive-in-2013.html Yes 4K is a standard but its not used as "THE" standard as 1080P is. You walk into an electronics store and all you see is 1920x1080 now. 1920x1200 used to...

    AMD Readies Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition

    If Intel gets their way and 4K resolution becomes a standard then these cards will be completely useless in high res gaming. I can wait a few years for standardization. And a few more for prices to fall.

    You mean heat insulators. If they were conductors you'd want to keep it on your GPU.

    Samsung Preparing a 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) Monitor

    HDMI has much higher resolution. 1920x1200 for earlier versions 1.1+1.2. And I believe 2560x1600 for 1.3+1.4. 1.4 supports 3D 120hz at 1920x1080.

    LG Unveils Stylish New 3D Glasses for 2012

    For people that require glasses 3D glasses are a hassle. Polarized glass like above are available in clip-ons but if you want Active 3D theres no such thing. You either see 3D in total blur or watch a screen that looks blurry (if your sharing 3D viewing with family)

    Heatsink bases

    I know on alot of the chips the IHS on the cpu itself is curved. If the heatsink is flat on the surface you would have to rely on both pressure and the thermal paste to transfer the heat as its only efficiently transferring heat in the direct center of the IHS. I believe its Prolimatech?? that...

    Scythe Announces New Slip Stream 120 and 140 mm Fan Models

    I love these fans by Scythe, but the bearings wear out too quickly. I've had 4 of them on different occaisons and all 4 have rough bearings and the fan wont even turn. Hopefully they improved them this time. And whats with the 140MM only pushing 92CFM? Theres pretty much no use for it in...
