    Avexir Core Series DDR3 Memory with Blue LEDs Released

    Pff. I used to have Corsair DDR1 that had about 16 LEDs on the top of the heatspreader showing mem usage and activity in different colours. Whatever happened to those, eh?

    Thailand Floods: HDD Prices To Remain Extortionately High As Supplies Get Tighter

    Nabbed another 5 drives, empty shelves in all 3 local branches of the shop now. 18 TB should see me through these terrible dark times!

    Thailand Floods: HDD Prices To Remain Extortionately High As Supplies Get Tighter

    2TB externals here are the ones I found at an unadjusted price. Bought 4 so far, may pick-up some more today. Just a normal Seagate Barracuda Green inside.

    Thailand Floods: HDD Prices To Remain Extortionately High As Supplies Get Tighter

    There are still some bargains out there if you look in shops too slow to react.

    AMD In for Total Restructuring, Executive Layoffs at Hand

    Hopefully they just swipe off the fat, culling marketroids and such, but keeping all their engineers.

    Mitsubishi Intros VISEO 120 Hz Monitor with IPS Panel

    Well, it's no worse than gaming in your underpants.

    ASUS Announces P7P55 WS SuperComputer Motherboard

    It's still just sharing the same amount of lanes but splitting them with an NF200 chip though. May be useful to some, but WS screams X58 in my book.

    ASUS Announces P7P55 WS SuperComputer Motherboard

    I think it's traditional for ASUS to host its website on a 33.6k modem. Nice lane starved supercomputer board ASUS, how about an Atom version next?

    Sharkoon Intros Temptation M-ATX Case

    Poor man's NZXT Rogue? Same layout.

    EVGA Intros X58 SLI Micro Motherboard

    You could put an extra PCIe x16 card in there for tri-GPU if you were so inclined. Some boards have the x4 slot open ended for this, others you'll have to use a saw to modify it slightly. In theory x16 cards should work in x1 slots too.. but it'd be even more cramped for bandwidth.

    EVGA Intros X58 SLI Micro Motherboard

    Yeah it would have to be on the top GPU, but it's always an option. This PCIe x1 extension doesn't look too pricey (£13/$22). Looking forward to the first reviews of this board. :)

    EVGA Intros X58 SLI Micro Motherboard

    Only two disappointments: - PCIe x1 instead of PCIe x4 as the 3rd slot (like all its competitors have..) - Sigh, lack of PS/2 mouse for KVM users. Another USB adapter to buy. I have to say it's the best looking board out of all of them. Will wait to see if it can beat the MSI X58M in...

    TDK Launches SDG2A Series Solid-State Drives

    I think I'll leave the details of these out of my postcard. The automatic encryption may be useful for some people though. Maybe they can do better with their next generation.. 5000x writes is a bit under par for MLC too isn't it?

    Supermicro Launches 4W and 8W Atom Server Solutions

    I don't suppose you know if any boards are using it yet? The D945GCLF2 still seems to use the power hungry one. I wonder if these supermicro servers allow 4GB of RAM, since there's 2 DIMM slots in the one pictured.

    Supermicro Launches 4W and 8W Atom Server Solutions

    Nice headline, but I'm sure they clock in higher wattwise once you add the crusty old intel chipset all atom boards use. When are intel going to do the Atom justice by pairing it with a die shrunk chipset?

    Intel Solid State Drives Price Cuts, New Models Revealed

    This is not true at all -- only the cheaper MLC based SSDs suffer from this problem. The more expensive SLC drives don't use the JMicron controller. Though they're not exactly cheap, and up in a similar price arena to the Intel drives. Having said that Intel do have the more advanced...

    Arctic Cooling Intros AC Twin Turbo with HD 4000 Series Support

    Slots? Does anyone know how many slots this cooler takes up? I'm assuming it's dual slot including the GPU.. I just have a hard time convincing myself of it when staring at the pics. ;)
