    Defective Apple Keyboards Draw Another Lawsuit

    lol, I love Kyle's news posts " Apparently these hipster ghoombahs using these Macs are getting gluten free crumbs all under the keys on the keyboard"

    Did I brick one of my BPN-SAS2-846EL1 backplanes?

    I've run into a similar issue with my EL1 backplane reporting wrong slot information. Looks like the MFG file is missing or corrupt. Does anyone have the FTP link for the latest Firmware/MFG code.

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    I honestly tried the build with both the stock and the premium. It can be done, it's just a tighter/tougher fit with the stock cables. Unless you go the custom route you just gotta stuff em in there bro. FWIW I wound up using a molex to sata adapter for the two drives I have in the cage made...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    I personally haven't noticed any as of yet. I am however sitting at least 4-5 feet away from the case itself. I have two of em, and they both so far seem to behave very similar to the Seasonic units I've been using for the last decade.

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    DHL shipping from Europe is no joke. I recieved the shipping confirmation on Monday, and found this at my doorstep this evening when I got home. Still can't believe how small this thing is.

    Not getting full Gigabit...

    Once you receive the new G1100, break the lease, connect it, let it take the firmware updates, and call in if your not seeing the speeds. We can test throughput from the GWR to any Verizon branded router as long as it's managed in HNM . There have been cases in the past where the profile wasn't...

    Upgrade Time, RX 480 or GTX 1060 with my PSU?

    I'll chime in here with my experiences with the 470 which supposedly has a lower TDP then the 480. I have a SeaSonic 400 watt platinum, I3 6100, 8GB DDR4, and a 1TB evo in a secondary system. Picked up the ROG Strix 470 for 164.00 with a 20 dollar rebate. Installed it, and immediately ran into...

    Sairento VR

    Anyone else played this yet ? Just purchased this yesterday, and so far I'm quite impressed. Definitely on par with if not slightly better then Raw Data in it's current state. Well worth the current asking price. Also works without issue on The Rift

    Amazon storage

    Like I said, the UI is indeed very basic and missing lots of features when compared to the competition. The throughput however is outstanding. I've tested at several different locations and the results have always been the same. Here's what I normally see on 150/150

    Amazon storage

    I've been using it since the beta was launched a little over a year ago. Got it free for a year when I bought a portable HDD. The app used to upload files is incredibly rudimentary. It offers no sync, encryption etc.. ,however there are a number of other apps that can be used to enhance the...

    EVGA 1080 SC SLI Black Screen

    This sounds like the overheating VRAM issue that's been reported. All of the ACX 3.0 cards apparently may have the issue. I would venture to guess that running two 1080's at full tilt, core temp @ 82c with little or poor airflow would definitely fall into the may have the issue category. I...

    Nvidia GTX 1080 & 1070 EVGA Cards Reportedly Catching Fire & Dying Due To VRMs Overheating

    Mine literally just showed up in the mail over the weekend. Install took roughly 30 minutes "1070 SC". So far, core temps seem to have dropped a bit. Idles @ 29c-31c and during gaming never goes above 60c. I'm running a FT02 with all the fans undervolted. As far as noise is concerned, even with...
