    What's your Windows Experience Index??

    I wanted to see where I ranked with some of the other people on here. I KNOW I KNOW, WEI is somewhat pointless but it does however, accurately describe your system's performace to an EXTENT. I'm well aware that benchmarking is a better test but I think it's a quick easy way to tell where you...

    Does anyone own an ASUS OC Station??

    I have been looking online for an Asus OC Station and no one seems to carry it in their inventory. I even went as far as trying to purchase it from a guy in the UK via an eBay store and that ended up falling through. Why in the hell are these things so hard to come by? Can anybody shed some...

    Anybody need GPU EK 4890 waterblock?

    My local microcenter for some reason has a buttload of EK 4890 waterblocks and that's it! No 5870, 5970, etc.... They have put them on clearance and they are selling them for about $50. I figure that to be a pretty good steal and if anybody is looking for this water block send me a message.
