The simpliest reason why I love to visit techpowerup is for my epic "nerdiness".

Everything (...almost everything) I want to know about hardware and software is posted here, without googlin' everywhere, in a very easy and convenient way.

Thanks and...sorry for my english, I'm from Italy, bye!

I'm not a native english speaker but we don't have such resource on our language like all in one pack with fresh reviews from the different sites, so I like it. Also TechPowerUP has interesting Case Mod gallery with votes and comments. I went to this site cuz of GPU-Z programm.

I love the place cause i've been lurking here since w1zzard first made ATItool.

This was the first IT forum i came across where the higher ups (w1zzard and Urlyin come to mind) werent douchebags, and replied to PM's even from a complete noob like me. Hell, back then, W1zzy was just a noob little programmer with dreams of one click overclocking.

Even today TPU still sticks around as being one of the best sites for the reasons i state above - we have a few trolls and people who are a pain in the butt, but at least the banstick doesnt come out for disagreeing with a staff member (unlike whats happened to me on various other forums).

Where else would let me get away with impersonating the head admin with a googly eyed version of his avatar with its beard on fire?

Yeah, we get slapped down (or since i became a mod, give out the slapping) but with leniency. we actually want members to stay here and help everyone else out, as opposed to other forums who just ban everyone for disagreeing.

Nowhere else on the web can you keep learning such useful information without being insulted at the same time.

edit: This is what my web browser looks like on a regular basis

Thats actually not very difficult. Quality, Quickness, Variety and of course GPU-Z. Two small things i really appreciate is the Case Mod section and the Todays Reviews.
Keep it up.

The reason I love TPU.... You have so many different Cultures coming together for the same purpose. Yes, we can go and 'mess" up here and there.. But, we are all human.. The best thing I can say for how I love TPU... Click my Loonym's link in the sig.. The BIGGEST reason TPU is a great site for Tech.

I came to TechPowerUp for the reviews, I stayed because of the community - no matter what it is if it's to do with computers there's always someone else here interested in it. So I love TPU because of both.

I love this place since great systems, both low and high end, are actually appreciated here and if you get hardware problems then there are many here who can help you out. :rockout:

The other thing I like is that even though I've been helped on a few points I've also been able to help some people already and I've only been on the forums for a month which isn't too bad in my opinion.

Originally I only went to check TechPowerUP to check their latest news (since it was and still is legit and reliable as always if I'm not mistaken), but a few months ago I actually noticed for the first time they had a forum so I checked it and from what I found I decided after a while to come on and see how I can help or be helped. :D

From here I have found things which never fully occured to me (such as extreme cooling and how to safely overclock) and I've become a lot more familiar with tools such as CPUID's CPU-Z and this website's GPU-Z (I like both since they have a similar layout style to each other and they work well together too when it comes to monitoring how my hardware is running).

I also like the users on here as I actually see decent solutions to the problems posted here and I've learned things from them too. :)

Overall I can safely and certainly say that this website and it's forum is a place where you can learn most of the things that you can do to make full use of your PC with the hardware it has.
