    Cool idea but seems useless right now.

    HOWEVER(!) if we can make this technology work like it did for Tony Stark(Iron Man) that would be friggin awesome.

    Tried a few phrases, I now feel your pain, at-least it gets one or two things right with my accent :laugh:

    I also tried a Louisiana swamp style voice, even worse results than Aussie :laugh:

    Computer: *opens notepad*
    Your mom: Who are you talking to, better not be a girl in there
    You: Mom is just the computer
    Mom: Oh, why the hell are you talking to an inadement object?

    I'm sure it's an option that can be turned off or on. I'd love to play with it.

    You say that based on what? I have no problems whatsoever, and am running a semi-high overclock 24/7, and the vrm stays much much cooler than on my previous 775 Gigabyte.

    i have now started reading your posts in a thick Australian accent. i can't help it.

    it may be neutral, but can't possibly be "none". if someone can tell where you are from by the way you talk (everyone) , then you have an accent.

    Weird feature, definitely a gimmick to me. Although I guess it may help some lazy or disabled people? like the guy who played PC games with only his chin and mouse which honestly brought tears to my eyes when I watched it.

    Well, I'll you what. Back in like March i injured my shoulder pretty good. Gonna have the joint replaced, even(well, more than the joint, but anyway...).

    I'm gonna be stuck using just one arm for a while. This is gonig to limit my ability to do reviews, and game, for sure.

    Perhaps this thing will help me specifically, when I have my surgery? I am actually very interested in this because of that.

    The cool thing is, you can actually use your voice to OC (up or down) during benchmarks.
    So if your PC always craps out during nature test #4, you just tell it:

    Multiplier down
    Multiplier down

    And you're set!

    Of course there's a lot of stuff you can set/do and of course customize some commands (Turn me on sexy).

    And yeah, not related to PWM at all :)
