    AMD's RX 500 Series Specifications, Performance Leaked

    I found many aspects of this rather disappointing, but most of all would be the dual fan setup. I am a huge fan of their reference single fan blower. Although loud, it saved me from having to use a heater whilst gaming during winter :P

    MSI Ships the Vortex Miniature Gaming PC

    Complete rip-off in terms of pricing. Looks cute but probably overheats like an oven set to 250c.

    I like my SATA drives.

    Enigma Software Sues BleepingComputer Over Negative Review

    I always treat Spyhunter as a virus and remove it. In every single case thus so far that i have come across it, the customer always insisted that they had no idea where it came from and did not knowingly install it. If they had known, they would not have done so. Bleeping computers have always...

    Star Trek Creator Gene Roddenberry's Long Lost Works Recovered with DriveSavers

    I know this is an old post, and i am sorry to bring it back up but . . . I just wanted to state that we recently did a data recovery from 9x 5.25" floppy disks and a cassette tape for a customer that NEEDED to know what was on them. The floppy disks had been subjected to extreme weather and one...

    Seagate Hit with Class Action Lawsuit over High HDD Failure Rates

    Currently running 23x 2Tb Samsung drives since 2007. Never had a problem with any of them. All Seagate and WD drives i have purchased since 2005 have failed including 4x Seagate 8Tb Archive drives. All drives are read only once they have been filled up and are accessed on average 10 times a...

    Corsair Carbide SPEC-ALPHA Mid-Tower ATX Brings an Edge to PC Cases at CES

    That is one filthy case to look at.

    NVIDIA Announces Drive PX 2 Mobile Supercomputer

    Still a far cry from Knight Industries Two Thousand.

    Star Trek Creator Gene Roddenberry's Long Lost Works Recovered with DriveSavers

    I think you are correct red_stapler. I kind of quickly read the post and did not pick up on that. Thank you for bringing that to my attention, i guess it makes me feel a little better about the company, but still . . . . I agree with the previous posts that this is a marketing ploy. You...

    Star Trek Creator Gene Roddenberry's Long Lost Works Recovered with DriveSavers

    Drive Savers just bit the bullet in my books. 5 years to data recover from 200 floppy's has to be one of the biggest IT jokes. I think there was a very creative data recovery team involved that recovered the data in about 4 hours and spent the next 5 years getting paid to do absolutely nothing...

    Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Pictured, Specs Confirmed

    I would need to add the water block and cooling kit to reduce the heat of the GPU whilst under load as opposed to the heat-sink and fan setup, also, reduce the required dual slot space taken by the card and clear up that general area of the board. Personally, I always seem to find a use for my...

    MSI Unleashes the X99A GODLIKE Gaming Motherboard

    This certainly is a way to put down 'God'. Might as well call it, 'MSi Blasphemy X99A'. I guess this means that anyone religious or atheist should not buy this board ?

    Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Pictured, Specs Confirmed

    HUGE card. Most likely will have to add a water block on it anyways. So, with the added price of a basic water block and water cooling setup for this card + the card itself, probably worth going straight to the Fury X.

    AMD Revises Pump-block Design for Radeon R9 Fury X

    Thank you, I was not aware that Nvidia were going to use HBM2. I thought that AMD had some licencing rights to it, something like that. That's why I assumed that Nvidia needed to get their act together. HBM1 is all good, but just a minor stepping stone in my books, the real fun wont start...

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury Specifications Leaked

    If the ROP count stays the same on the Fury, we could be looking at a very decent option with price/performance in mind. I am very interested to see what happens when this comes out. Even more interested to see the Nano, so much talk about it.

    Realtek Develops New Onboard LAN Chip to Win Back Gamer Crowd

    I was sure that Realtek was gone for good. They failed to produce something decent for years now and I assumed they simply were not interested. This is one slap in the face I will enjoy, IF it really turns out to be decent. Looking forward to some benchmarks and comparisons.

    AMD Revises Pump-block Design for Radeon R9 Fury X

    I think the Fury X is a fantastic card. I love HBM. I have decided to give it a miss this time 'round and see what AMD have install for the next series. I am looking forward to 8+Gb HBM with further refined technology. I love the GPU and memory being closer together concept and obviously this...

    GELID Announces Polar 1U Low-profile CPU Cooler for Intel LGA115x

    Looks like a cheap and poor solution to me. I agree with the required under-body photo being required here, or at least a mention of the material used underneath. If this is aluminium throughout, probably better off with another product. Also, having a full profile GPU in the picture can help...

    Why aren't mouse glide feet thicker?

    I guess it depends on the quality. I remember the Razer Copperhead mousefeet lasted for over 3 years before I replaced them with the ones that came with the mouse which lasted for a further 4 years. Between this time frame, I ended up purchasing a few more of the Copperhead because I just love...

    Sorry, I did not realize. I thought this monitor was manufactured in Taiwan or China and then shipped worldwide.

    E Fun Announces Nextbook Flexx 10

    32Gb Internal storage minus the operating system with it's growing SXS folder is too small for practical use.

    Monitor choices: 1440p IPS displays at/over 27"?

    You could just get a Samsung 28" 4k monitor for the same price ? I don't know how much the Samsung U28D590D is worth in England, but here in Australia they sell for $499. $499au is less than £245. Granted, you wont have the cheap speakers that come with some other monitors, but you can always...
