I really dont want to see that, There are 2 sites whos reviews I truly trust, TPU and PcPer, w1zzard and ryan's reviews are normally both quite reliable, and one thing I have respected about both of you is that if some evidence comes to light that your review may have been flawed, you both look into it and correct when needed, you also dont back down to pressure from hardware companies to change your reviews(fermi watt's used for example), you tell it as it is.

If somebody reports a legit problem with A peice of hardware, TPU and PcPer never ban them for it, unlike [H] that bans people who report problems with hardware they like.(8800gt issues that turned out to be a good number of cards, not huge number but a good number out of the first batch had a hardware flaw that caused bsod)

Well W1zzard, I do hope you dont quit, and I hope you see this and read it, I may even toss you a line on messenger since i see your online :)
Quoted for the truth!!! Only 2 site I have ever had respect for, tpu and Amdforums.com(now pcper)

Only site ive been registered to longer then tpu is amdforums.

W1z, Please reconsider, seriously..... I have been a member here for well over 4 years and have witnessed first hand the way you run this site, your contribution, time and perhaps most importantly your patience have made this community what it is today.

I am sure even most of the more recent members appreciate this but for us "old farts" TPU will not be TPU without you, not even if the forums/community is run well by others will it be the same, if there is any chance you would reconsider your decision..... do it if only for the "core" of the membership please.
I second this , it will not be the same at all.

I hope w1zzard will change his decision and stay in TPU
Agreed. I've been visiting techPowerUp! nearly daily for the past 3 years now.

Not only does techPowerUp! have excellent quality reviews, W1zzard's reviews (in particular, video card reviews) are the most fair and honest I've seen. Whenever I have any question on a video card's performance techPowerUp! is the first source I go to, before even hitting google up.

I really hope that W1zzard reconsiders and stays as he would definitely be missed by many; however, it is his decision after all and I would respect it regardless of its outcome. Though note: we really would love you to stay.

W1zzard, the first thing you gotta keep in mind is that probably 1/2, no 3/4 of those comments were made by adolescant kids with the idea that they have a right to entitlment for everything internet based. It's the internet age where the immature and adolescants are given a voice without consequence and it can be a pretty dangerous place because of that. The internet ultimately lead to a huge generational gap, and it's the kids with no self imposed responsibility and lack of respect that will turn the internet into a breeding ground of basement dwellers whose primary interaction in life is with their PC and the internet. For the rest of us, please reconcider your decision and chalk it up to what it is; a complete lack of maturity and total ignorance.

With the direction the internet has taken and likely will continue to take, the only solution in the face of a lack of self imposed restraint, is strict moderation. That's what you'll have to resort to for these kinds of attacks. It's just the reality of it all, but moderation can certainly control it. Boot them out and throw away the key. People need to learn to use some manners, even on the internet.

You should take a step back and reconsider your decision, and try not to let the ignorant spoil the party. Censorship isn't always a bad thing, and this is a prime example.

Unless this is an AF joke, but I get the feeling that it isn't.

If this is true W1zzard, I'm sorry to hear it, you're a good helpful chap in the posts I've come across from you, your reviews were the starting point for most of the purchases for my desktop and all seemed to be top notch. If it was a combination of personal issues and the unappreciative treatment of yourself by people in the Fermi thread.
Mr Waffles, what you have said is true but there's a vast number of users on here who are my age (17) who do act in a mature manner and will miss W1zzard's contribution to (you know the whole setting up the forum thing!).
If there's anyone who lives near W1zzard and has his number, get hold of him, be a good bloke, take him out for a pint and help the man sort out whatever's up in his life.
If this is an april fool's joke W1z's ego will be the size of germany by now...
Anyway, I'm off to recover my jaw from the flat two floors down and explain to the owners why my jaw fell through their ceiling!

This shows how stupid and ruthless the Nvidia fanboys are , i didn't see this kind of behavior from Ati users or fanboys when 3870 or 2900Xt wasn't doing so good.
Nvidia created a bunch of hooligans to cheer them , it was bound to happen this way , it's not only here , other forums have people who bought and cheered Nvidia for a long time and they can't accept GTX480 is a fail , they blame everyone and everything.
While i dislike censoring this time i would agree to make the forum stricter in some conditions like this , let some mods jump on the idiots with harsh bans and warnings , also you can make a forum for the reviews with "waiting to be moderated" so nothing is posted without your approval , it's your website , your work , who the fu..ck are these people to trash your work , most of them don't go over 18 years and talk like they are all knowing , or some act under the anonimity of the internet , these people don't contribute to the world with nothing but they have a big mought to criticize everything.

Did this have anything to with W1zzard's decision? Just asking.:confused:

Quoted From Legit Reviews:

We gave the build the good old college try, but we were still sitting around 86C in GPU-Z when we tried it out today. We gave our feedback to NVIDIA and several hours later they got back to us with this:

""Upon low-level examination of the GPU-Z application, we have determined that it is not using our NVAPI for all temperature/fan control calls, but is instead banging registers directly. This is interfering with our fan control and causing boards to crash when GPU-Z is run in the background. We need GPU-Z to use NVAPI to avoid these conflicts..."- NVIDIA

We have had random crashes with the GeForce GTX 480 graphics card while running GPU-Z in the background, so it's great that the issue has been identified and solved. We expect a new version of GPU-Z to be available soon that should address all issues. NVIDIA also thought that GPU-Z might be the root cause of the fan anomalies, but when we fired up the system from a cold boot and opened just MSI AfterBurner, we found the GPU to be idling at around 84C, which is again a tad too hot for our tastes."

If Wizzard leaves - what will happen......Chaos!

Put very, very simply :


DON'T GO BECAUSE OF SOME:banghead: JERKS:slap: WIZZARD!!!!!!

Ban the Jerks:nutkick:, and then stay because put simply TPU would be nothing without you.... :rockout:

That sentiment makes it worse. Positivity will only help at this point. Your own blind assumption that ATi users are solely at fault is rather ignorant as it was pointed out earlier in the thread. This is not a thread made for your own hatred of Nvidia sympathizers. This is a goodbye thread from the creator of the forum. Please stop with that nonsense.

Well w1zz, you will be sorely missed. To date this is the only computer forum I've joined, and the one I haunt the most. And I can appreciate that after some time the passion turns into slog. I've been down that road in my occupation. My saving grace was taking a few years out to recover and find my bearings.

Like pretty much all here, I wish you wouldn't step down, but I respect your choice. What saddens me is all those who assume that the site will go downhill after this. It may, it may not. But maybe we can show our respect to what w1zz created here by carrying on in his spirit. Lets' work at keeping TPU the quality site it is. If the new owners do take the site in a bad direction, I'll be out in a flash. But let's not give up just yet.

W1zzard, you are a man of note, and thank you for what you have done here.:respect::respect::respect::respect::respect::respect::respect::respect::respect::respect:

I'm pretty sure no. That's too trivial, w1z comes across issues and fixes them every now and then. Which freelance developer doesn't?

If TPU was on the New York Stock Exchange and W1zzard was the CEO, this stock would have sunk.....thats the impact you have on us here W1zzy.

But you gotta do what you gotta do.

It was a total shock for me to read it and to realize that it 's not an April Fool joke. :( And it is really sad to see that forum trolls crowd almost succeeded in destroying everything you were doing all these years. I can perfectly understand your motivation on leaving TPU, I'm often being under the same skin and get pretty close to saying "I'm done with that" myself, but I also perfectly know that it is really hard to kill something you do with passion, even if it annoys you and eats your nerves. That's why I've highlighted the word "almost", I really hope that you'll calm down and reconsider after a few weeks/months of vacation and rest.
You know, before we met about 7 years ago during 9500 to 9700 softmodding era, I absolutely couldn't imagine good relations between developers designing competing products. You changed that point of view drastically, because I've met incredibly honest, polite, unbiased, professional and absolutely not profit oriented person. There are not so many developers, whom I can trust that much. There are not so many competitors, whom I can call my FRIENDS. And damn, call me egoist, but I ABSOLUTELY don't want to lose such friend on GPU tools scene. So have a good rest and come back to your tools and articles full re-fueled please. ;)
