    How Scammers in China Manipulate Amazon and Its Shoppers

    I love checking FakeSpot to check out reviews before buying. I mean you can usually guess but an F or a D means no purchase from me.

    Help ASUS z170 deluxe wifi gone

    I had the same problem with a Hero Alpha Z170. I too rma'd it but the replacement did the same thing. What temporarily fixed it for me is that I had to disable the WiFi in bios, boot into Windows then restart, re-enable it in the bios and Windows would finally pick it back up. Got tired of...

    PCIE 3.0 x16 slot use a raid card?

    Did this ever work? I'm wondering the same thing. I'm looking at the new Gigabyte GA-X99P Sli board and I'll never fill up all of those 16x slots with video cards. Was hoping to add a couple of pce-i ms ssds on there.

    ASUS PG279Q 144hz 1440P IPS G-Sync

    NIB, Got a Nowinstock email this morning and ordered it before I had a chance to chicken out. I also got a notice this weekend about the ASUS store having it but I didn't care for the ASUS ordering system so I passed on them.

    ASUS PG279Q 144hz 1440P IPS G-Sync

    Yeah, no kidding. I figured I would try the panel lottery but the only place I found that has an estimated ship date was Fry's Electronics. Yesterday they had it listed with an estimated ship date of Feb 8th. Today of course that date has changed to Feb 9th. They probably have no clue either.

    GIGABYTE Z170X Gaming 7 LGA 1151 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Sorry to resurrect an older thread but I had a question about this board. Does anyone know if Gigabyte is pulling the Gaming 7? Amazon and NewEgg don't seem to be carrying it anymore except for 3rd party sellers. It's got all the features I want but it seems awful early for stores to not...

    ASUS PG279Q 144hz 1440P IPS G-Sync

    Kept looking at it at Amazon but found it hard to pull that $799 trigger. Don't have to worry about it now because Amazon isn't accepting any more orders. Visa card dodged the bullet for now.

    Microsoft Releasing 34 Unscheduled Patches Today

    I wish they would take the time to put the actual patch description in windows update. "Install this update to resolve issues in Windows" doesn't tell me squat. Having to click on the 'more information' link for every patch is a bit ridiculous - especially for the bazillion patches they've...

    Proposed Class Action Lawsuit Over NVIDIA GTX 970

    Great, so the next GTX 990 (or whatever) will be that much more expensive so nvidia or the oems can pay for the costs of this lawsuit. Great plan

    Corsair K70 Reviews on Amazon

    Thanks Guys. Appreciate all the feed back and especially from the rep - that goes a long way. Tired of getting seemingly getting burnt on PC hardware these days (Samsung EVO 840 is the current culprit), so I'm having a tendency to read everything lately and buy nothing which sucks.

    Corsair K70 Reviews on Amazon

    Was looking to see if Corsair got their led problems sorted out out yet so I went to the K70 reviews to see what the scoop was. Something looks stinky to me. Four of the last five reviews are real short and titled 'Five Stars'. Ugh. Looks gamed to me. Can't freaking trust anyone any more.

    Well dang. I didn't notice that. Just about to order a QNIX 2710 to play with. Crap.
