Heavy duty... *Bought them due to children on buss/train on my way to highschool, they rock at blocking...

    Noise cancelling headphones - advice please

    Those are 200 USD, atleast around here, they are super at blocking out sound, and superb comfort.... Needs a hell of alot time to get "warm", sound is really bad before they are well played... HD555 might be a better choice.

    Noise cancelling headphones - advice please

    Closed earphones, but good ones tend to be quite expensive... To get a 'good' pair, you'll have to invest 300 Euro / 400 USD... However, if entering, you can get some with decent sound, but poor build quality at low price, myself I paid ~110 USD for a pair of Denon AH-D1100 a few weeks back...

    ASRock Z77 Extreme6 Overclock Intel Core i7-3770K CPU To 6.9 GHz With LN2 Cooling

    I might be mistaking alot here... But strongly doubt that the DIE is single layer... ;) It would be dead thin if it was, and well, a DIE isnt.. So, half the layer, and surface area will almost double.

    AMD Trinity and Brazos 2.0 Start Shipping to ODMs

    Sure, a bad install, wrong drivers etc. can bring it down easily... But this one wasnt... It was noticable that it didnt run smooth. Now I can throw tons of stuff after the PC, without it breaking a sweat drop, and the temperature of this Intel is nuts... Decreased voltage to 1.005v (it was...

    AMD Trinity and Brazos 2.0 Start Shipping to ODMs

    With VLC player, no problem.... Youtube on the other hand... But since changing, the PC has been loaded with a shiftload more stuff...

    AMD Trinity and Brazos 2.0 Start Shipping to ODMs

    They were so freaking slow making brazos 2.0, and lets face it... First E-generation was too freaking slow for 1080p video playback without GPU acc..... Because of the long wait, I ended up going all in, sandy bridge dualcore instead, power consumption of my i3-2100 setup is less than 10W...

    What Air Cooler to get?

    C14 is an excellent choice, but really, I must agree... H60, H80 Antec 620, 920 (620 being the way cheapest) Seem like much better options to me.

    2600-2666MHz Speed Demon RAM Sticks

    Sir, I promise you, you will not see 2666mhz this year, or next year. DDR3-5333 wont ever happen, it will be DDR4-5333

    GIGABYTE WindForce 5X Cooling Solution on GTX 680 SOC Pictured - 5 Fan Mayhem

    I do not have the VGA here, hard to tell, but from another picture, it looks like there are holes (oval) near PCI-e, which also allows air passage, but dont think that is suffecient.. But personally, I'd rather eat a hat of hay, then own a Sabertooth product... They are fugly, and perform...

    GIGABYTE WindForce 5X Cooling Solution on GTX 680 SOC Pictured - 5 Fan Mayhem

    From the look on this picture they do. On the right side, you see SLI connector, and the backside of the fan facing towards the cam. They are sucking air through the card.

    GIGABYTE WindForce 5X Cooling Solution on GTX 680 SOC Pictured - 5 Fan Mayhem

    Sure, 40mm fans can be noisy. But from the pictures we see, it could just as well be very low restrictive heatsink design with a crazy huge surface area....? ;) 20*4cm^2 to be more exact Also... IF it was high rpm fans, they would have turned them the other way, to blow air through the card...

    Gigabyte Readies GA-P55A-UD7 to Lead P55A Series

    Gigabyte had to make sure that NF200 was of suffecient quality before implanting, and that it could be delivered in volume.... The sales numbers between evga and gigabyte motherboards is noticable ;) Gigabyte announced their reasoning through Raymond Tseng (Associate Vice President, Firmware...
