      Interesting news I emailed you guys about to put on front page:

      Guy makes a video about geriatric law makers (basically), a dude referenced in the video being sued by Microsoft replies in the comments, a Reddit thread has been started with more applicable stuff in it:

      Kyle, let me just say that I've been a follower of HardOCP since I was 14 years old. I am now 31 and I have your Ratpadz. I was in a discussion with fellow gamers tonight and found that the Ratpadz is no longer being produced. I am incredibly saddened by this but I am still thankful for HardOCP. Keep up the good work man.

      Did a reboot of my system and now it's all good. Not sure what was going on since I had just booted the system before I got onto your site. Sorry about the false alarm.

      On another note, the Ryzen CPU/RAM/motherboard I won in the drawing have been working perfectly, not a single issue as far as I can tell. Thanks again.

      Another Hm. If I look with Windows and Firefox Quantum it looks ok. With Linux (mint) and Firefox Quantum things don't match up correctly. I'm pretty sure it was working correctly yesterday with Linux.

        Looks all good for me in FF. Maybe clear your cache? Send me some screen shots of exactly what you are seeing?

      Hm, it looks like some of the videos on the front page aren't matching up with the text locations. The Burnout Paradise vid is under the Heatkiller text, the flight sim video is under the Burnout Paradise text.

      I recently had my account re-passworded (I think it was actually by you), and despite it being years old, I can’t PM. Is there a required post count as well, or was the age reset?

      Hello Mr. Bennett, I purchased a RX470 last year for $160. The mining craze slowed. AMD should have production up now. RX570 should be $160. Has AMD commented? Well over a year in video cards is a long time. Any expectations of when supply will meet demand? Big gap from 560 to 570/580. Happy holidays!

      Hey I have a sort of tech problem you could call it...I would like to know any direction you could give regarding the creation of my own website possibly for future businesss needs? Especially seeing what you have created here gives me inspiration to do something similar and no worries it doesn't compete it's completely medical in focus.

      I have a dumb question. Years ago I was involved in a Mini Storage software company called MSTC. I helped a guy named Kyle back in the mid 90's get his system running.
      You don't happen to own that mini storage, do you?

      Kyle due to a memory problem because of 2 cardiac meds I am on, I had forgotten my password and opened a new account. Please merge the Ira Wechsler username account into my older os2wiz account. It would be appreciated. The older account on my desktop has 80 messages, the Ira Wechsler user name only has 18 posts. I would like to reach that critical 100 post level so I would be eligible to use the for sale thread

      (1)Hi Kyle,

      I seem to have angered the [H] gods again, spent like 30 minutes constructing a thread about stuff I want to sell, or trade, the system won't let me post the thread. I have run afoul of you guys in the past, and I've always been able to make amends. I'm not sure what I have done wrong this time,

      Personally, I think its retarded to offer that many different versions of the same chipset this early in.

      Hey man. just a quick idea.. Looked over at Asus, and they went insane-o in the brain-o it looks like. They've got something like 25 different 270 & 250 based motherboards. Some ornery Texan needs to roll up his sleeves and separate the cream from the crap if ya know what I mean? It's impossible to tell what board offers what over what board based on their pages EXTREMELY limited 'comparison' options.

        Because we are not handling the giveaway. Either is fine for entry, should make no difference.

      Any Community Launch events planned for the GTX 1080 in the Dallas area?

      EDIT: I ask, because I was at the TigerDirect/Galaxy launch event for the 780. So I figured if you would be the best bet.

      Hello Kyle. I have been a member for about 8 yrs. I can't login. I created this new acct to reach out to you. My previous acct was dccmadams. I need a reset on my password, but I don't see it coming thru on my email. I have been using dccmadams@yahoo.com for many years. If I could get a reset link to that account for dccmadams, that would be great. Thanks, Dave Adams.

      Greetings Kyle,
      I read and watched your Core i7 920 material 2008/09 and was blown away. Ordered similar parts based around the 920, P6T Deluxe, Corsair DDR3 and enjoyed my PC ever since. I want to thank you and your staff for the in dept reviews on enthousiast stuff. Bought a 2nd hand 980X, best upgrade ever. My vintage 2009 1366 platform is amazing thanks to you.
