    DRAM Output in 2018 Planned for Continued High Pricing - TrendForce

    HGST Announces World's First 14 Terabyte Hard Drive

    You can get WD Red 8TB drives from Best Buy (in the US) occasionally for $160 in the form of an external USB drive. You just have to remove the outer cage to get to it. These drives do not carry the standard WD Red warranty but are the same drive as those sold for almost 2x as much standalone.

    Core i7-8700K Reviewed by Lab501

    There is also something to be said about dismissing critics by faulting them for grammar or pedantic details. I used TIM to describe thermal paste, it doesn't diminish my argument whatsoever.

    You're being incredibly pedantic with that point. Everyone that is arguing for or against the heatspreader issue knows exactly what is being described.

    Core i7-8700K Reviewed by Lab501

    Using TIM means that amateur overclockers will feel the need to delid to get the most out of their chip whereas they would not be inclined to do that if the heatspreader were soldered. Statistically, more delids means more dead or damaged CPUs and maybe even more damaged motherboard sockets if...

    NVIDIA Releases the GeForce 385.41 Game Ready WHQL Drivers

    I remember when the Riva TNT drivers were 5MB and that was large at the time because of dialup being the most common way to access the internet.

    Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Gaming 11 GB

    Can you buy that outside of Brazil? Any gpu braces I've found are at least $15. I can't imagine the one in your pics is that expensive, and if they are, someone needs to introduce some competition and bring prices down!

    Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti G1 Gaming 4 GB

    Yeah, they do. But probably not for $170. I have a strict 90w limit on the GPU for my HTPC due to using a PicoPSU 160XT. I currently have a Geforce 950 (no power connector) in it based on the review I read here. My 950 overclocks the same as the review, so I'm getting close to Geforce 960 level...

    Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti G1 Gaming 4 GB

    Could we please get a review of a 1050 TI without a power connector? I have not seen any reviews showing the overclocking capabilities of the cards without a power connector.

    MSI GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X 4 GB

    The 470 is the better card in the price range, but the 1050 ti without a power connector can't be beat for systems that have strict power requirements. I'm currently running an Asrock X99 ITX board with a 65w 8 core Xeon and a Geforce 950 with no power connector. It's powered by a 160w Pico PSU...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB

    I wasn't advising anyone to go out and buy a 295x2. But if you did buy one when they were $500 a few years ago, you basically made one of the best choices for years to come.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB

    The most surprising thing from this review is how capable the 295x2 still is. I remember that card selling for $500-550 at one point years ago. I remember the Geforce 690 having some amazing staying power for years after its release as well.

    Seagate Hit with Class Action Lawsuit over High HDD Failure Rates

    They've been compiling these results for years. The trend is consistent. I've given Seagate multiple chances and they have failed me every time. I had six 1.5TB 7200.11 drives that all failed due to the notorious mechanical defects in that line. Then I foolishly bought two 4TB consumer grade...

    What are the two black thumbscrews directly above the HDD cage for? Can the HDD cage be removed? It doesn't look like it, since it appears to hold up the mobo tray. Also, it looks like this case may be available at NCIX for US buyers since they are listed as a distributor.

    MSI GTX 960 Gaming OC 2 GB

    At only 20w higher maximum power consumption than a Geforce 650 TI Boost and nearly a 100% performance gain over that card, it looks like the 960 is the new TI Boost replacement. I was never sold on the 750 TI as the successor to the 650 TI Boost since it was slower and required vBIOS hacks to...

    Thermaltake Releases New Stackable Core V21 Micro-ATX Chassis

    SATA 3 - M.2 SSD

    Actually, according to the Wikipedia page for the M.2 spec, it may be possible to use older SATA devices with M.2 via an adapter since the M.2 spec does offer a legacy device interface for SATA 3.

    NVIDIA to Return $1 Billion to Shareholders in Current Fiscal Year

    True, true. The shadow of ATi's bad driver development has not gone away since the days of their Rage cards 15 years ago. They've improved considerably but Nvidia has always had the upper hand in drivers.

    Acrosser Introduces All-in-one Gaming Board for Kiosks

    Well you'd think that if they could make a single 768 shader core unit as an APU, they would have. The focus has been on squeezing out more speed from the same number of shader cores. So if they can manufacture a 384 shader core package, why not two on one die or two 256 shader core packages.
