    Crucial MX100 256 GB

    Thanks for the review. After seeing the numbers and price I ordered 2 to run in RAID 0 to replace my aging OCZ Agility 3. At the same time that purchase made me a little sad. That was my first computer purchase in nearly a year. The entire community is so stagnated that I have been fine...

    Need Help Choosing New Motherboard

    Every review I read about the MPower and Gaming series all came to the same conclusions. Good hardware, terrible software (BIOS). Who knows, maybe MSI fixed the BIOS issues. My vote between MSI and ASUS will come to the same conclusion about 90% of the time. Go with the ASUS.

    Damaged Haswell Box. Should I return it?

    The plastic clamshell that holds the CPU is pretty sturdy so I'd say don't worry about it. Especially considering that the CPU is pinless.

    Scythe Mugen 4

    I still have the scars to prove that installing a Scythe Mugen (1) is a "B". I saw the review title and immediately thought to myself no more Mugens.

    GIGABYTE Force K7 Gaming Keyboard

    Yeah, you have the wrong Pros and Cons listed for the keyboard.

    EUROCOM Unveils Panther 5SE Mobile Server with Lesser Weight

    Jeez... What does this thing weigh, 20 lbs/9 kg?

    MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX (Intel LGA 1150)

    Love the honesty. But, if you want to be taken more seriously by MSI you might want to consider "This board sucks" to something a little more mature. Thanks for the review, I was liking the new MSI boards until I saw this review and another one about a week ago complaining about the same exact...

    NZXT H630

    I like this trend but I wish they would make it 3 or 4. Next build I'm going to run an SSD as the primary/OS drive. Then the plan for space is to run 3 or 4 Seagate Momentus XT drives in RAID 0. I would really like to be able to mount all the "laptop" drives behind the tray and then just...

    Intel Haswell i5-4670K vs. i7-4770K Comparison

    Minor nitpick... RE: Page 2 In America we put the $ sign before the amount, i.e. $243 and $350. I say this cause I assume you pulled the info from Intel's website. Other than that I always like articles like this. It shows you that for an extra $107 you don't get that much more...

    Rosewill Galaxy Series Gaming Cases Launched

    All hideous. And then two of them have 1 front USB 3.0 port (lazy). The icing on the cake here is red highlights on the case with blue LED fans. Needless to say, I'll pass.

    Antec High Current Gamer Modular 850 W

    I like that they give you the option to turn off the LEDs. I know some people think the more the merrier. I am of the mindset that any number of LEDs over 0 is too many. When I build my own machines I don't even hook up the case power LED or HDD activity LED.

    Corsair Carbide Air 540

    If I had the room to store the case I'd buy it. As of right now my mid tower sits under the desk and there isn't much room with it. :ohwell:

    GPU-Z v0.7.1 Potential Issue

    Problem still persists in v0.7.2. Is this not the correct place to post issues?

    EVGA's GeForce GTX 760 Lineup Detailed

    Two words: market saturation. The more of a product you have in the retail space the more likely that someone will end up choosing one of your products.

    Kingston HyperX Beast Black 16 GB 2133 C11 (2x8 GB)

    You must be a fisherman. Cause if you have the patience to overclock RAM then you must have a ton of it. Thanks for the review.

    AMD FX-9000 Series Processors Available For Pre-Order

    If those price are indeed correct all I can say is good luck. You (AMD) will give more out as review samples than you would have as private purchases.

    ZOTAC GeForce GTX TITAN AMP! Edition 6 GB

    When reviewing a nVidia based card why not include a screenshot of the "Read ASIC quality..." from GPU-Z in the review? This way you could check your suspicions about if Zotac is cherry picking parts or not.

    GPU-Z v0.7.1 Potential Issue

    Win 7 x64 Pro SP 1, desktop i7 2600K. I'm not sure what the readings were in the last release. I know what hardware I have so I typically only use GPU-Z for other people's machines. Reason I noticed it was because I was curious about the differences with my GTX 570.

    GPU-Z v0.7.1 Potential Issue

    Just ran it and noticed that my HD 3000 is showing support for PhysX and nothing else. Can't be right can it?

    NZXT Announces H630 Ultra-Tower Chassis

    NZXT is an American company so I would like to think so. I must be getting older because instead of windows, LEDs, flashy paint, etc... I just want a plain looking case that works well. At this point when I build myself a machine I don't hook up the power or HDD LEDs to the motherboard (NO...

    Thermaltake Announces Water 3.0 Line of AIO CPU Coolers

    At this time isn't Cooler Master the only AiO unit that uses a copper radiator and a copper base? If that's the case the that seems like the no-brainer option to get.

    Monster Digital Debuts Overdrive 3.0 Solid State External Drives

    Monster is one of the worst brands on the planet. People see the price and assume that higher = better. I remember walking through Fry's several years ago looking at TVs. One TV had the $150 Monster HDMI cable next to the "competition". I looked around back and the Monster TV had a HDMI...

    NZXT Announces Grid Internal Fan Hub

    I thought that's what this was until I read the entire story. I agree with you that someone needs to do this too.
