    HWLabs Nemesis radiators are garbage.

    I made the mistake of buying a few 120 GTS and 240 GTS nemesis radiators without closely comparing them to the older variants. Here's a summary of why they're total crap compared to the older ones. 1. Reduced performance compared to classic GT Stealth due to reduced fin density. GTS Nemesis...

    Anyone have a WD Passport X 2TB?

    Was wondering if anyone had tested this drive with CDM and the like? I found thread on reddit that showed it was significantly faster than a WD Passport Ultra 2TB. Also, the X has a black sticker on the box, unlike the green sticker on the Ultra. So it should be a very high quality drive...

    Rude PM's from a user over my shipping policy.

    In my thread, I state that I provide USPS with DC, which comes with $50 in insurance free. I also state that if you want more insurance, you have to pay for that. That is to say, for any item worth less than $50, you don't pay for any shipping at all, and for anything over $50, I'll still pay...

    Swiftech confirms they've killed the Unisink.

    http://forums.swiftech.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=2746&sid=65573aae4837411f93072d156b25d9e8 Really not happy about having bought MCW82's under the premise that I'd be able to get unisinks in the future and my cooling would be able to follow my GPU upgrades.

    344.16 causes my GTX 980 to TDR... A LOT.

    Downloaded it two days ago when it was beta and *every* game I loaded up caused an instant TDR. When I saw it went WHQL today, I figured they must have fixed something so I installed it again. Same issue. Tested all of this at stock speeds, and I've never increased the voltage on the card.

    Ode to the Corsair 950TX.

    I bought this PSU after my two Silverstone 1000W PSUs died(which, seriously, were the worst psu's I've ever owned). I want to say that was about 4 years ago. This past weekend I noticed that the voltages on my 950TX are really starting to go. Here we see a test with my old i7 970 beasting out...

    MSI N770 2GD5/OC is a *reference PCB* !

    I wanted to watercool my GPUS, but the EK configurator showed the PCB for this card was the same as the TF version. Turns out that is NOT TRUE. I just disassembled one of my GPUS and here are the PCB shots. This is very, VERY clearly a reference PCB. Time to buy some full cover blocks! Wheee...

    Solution to "No drives found." installing Windows 7.

    I helped my boss build a computer for his mother, and when it came time to install Windows 7, we could not get it to allow us to install onto the SSD. It would tell us "No drives found." And the list of drives would be blank. The most puzzling thing is I formatted the drive on another...

    Cooler Master Gemin II S524 Socket 2011 Mounting

    The mounting system for LGA2011 is... HORRIBLE. The overhang on the heatsink coupled with the crowded nature of the LGA2011 socket makes it nearly impossible to install. You have to use this tiny little wrench with a tab over it to push down on the nut(because of the springs) while you screw...

    Geminii S mounting hardware has been changed.
