    The 4K 60hz limitation is crazy! What's the future of firmware updates, etc?

    HDMI 2.1 will have a max bandwidth of 48 Gbit/s and require new cables. Enables up to 8K. It won't be able to be enabled via a firmware upgrade. Read this cnet article Variable refresh rate...

    At which size ultrawide screens begin to make sense?

    I've been contemplating an ultra-wide monitor above my triple monitor setup, I don't think it's a stupid development. I wish that TV manufacturers would give ultra-wide another shot, at least in the 60"+ range, would be really sick.

    MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti SEA HAWK Video Card Review @ [H]

    In what instances does the on-card fan run? Is that fan silent even under heavy load? I hate that whine that those fans will produce at high RPM. One thing I've always liked about the NZXT and other video card water cooler kits is that the on-card fan is larger than a reference card provides. I...

    Here Comes the $13 Single-Board Computer

    It'd be nice to see this evolve into being able to work in tandem with a RPi, providing it's features which the RPi lacks to the RPi. IE: through open software it's possible to have this be a logical extension of the RPi which includes a real-time clock, 2 push buttons, 3 LED's as well as all...

    Scythe AP 15 "Whistling Typhoons"

    I agree completely. I run 4 off of my H100 block (which even after rma won't controI their speed, are these pmw?) and they have annoyed me ever since.

    Is this case big enough to fit a Corsair H100 water cooler?

    Yea if you poor through the reviews the H100 is a few degrees cooler than the H80, but really for most people it'll come down to fan noise, H100 really allows you to have the same cooling of the H80 but with less ambient noise (depending on fan choice). And do your self a favor and get...

    Is this case big enough to fit a Corsair H100 water cooler?

    I own both (separate computers), unless you plan on modding your case heavily to make it fit, you should either get an H80 or get a bigger case.
