    Ubiquiti for home network a good idea?

    I would like to try setting my home WiFi using Ubiquiti equipment. I know it will be more complicated (maybe not that much depending on what equipment I'm getting) that using a basic wireless routers, but I would like to try it just for the hell of it. I was thinking of starting with a...

    Does anyone have experience with the EK-KIT H3O 360 HFX liquid cooling kit?

    Does anyone have experience with the EK-KIT H3O 360 HFX liquid cooling kit? Since this would be my first build with a liquid cooling setup my thinking was that a kit would help take most the guesswork out of it. Edit: Wow... I was just reading the EK thread...

    Rusting Obsidian 800D PCI slot covers screws

    Any Obsidian 800D owner noticed rust on the PCI slot covers screws? I’ve got my 800D a few months ago (and I’m not living in an high humidity environment) and while installing a new sound card, I noticed some rust on all screws. The original finish did look cheap, but I never tough it would be...

    Anyone knows where to order a Logitech G9x in Canada?

    For some strange reason, the G9x is readily available in the US, but not in Canada. I've tried to find a store that will ship to Canada, but not luck. :(

    Strange issue with a GTX 285OC2

    I'm having the strangest issue with my GTX 285OC2. From time to time, my screen will go blank like it's in power saving mode. It last for about 2 or 3 seconds, but it's mightily annoying! I've verified the screen saver settings and the power options but everything is properly setup. I've...

    Antec SG-650 or SG-850

    I'm replacing a whining PSU (when used in conjunction with a GTX 285) and I'm hesitating between the SG-650 and SG-850. I have no plan to run a SLI setup, but I'd like some headroom for future upgrades (look at my sig) while not overloading my UPS (APC DLA1500). My guess is that a SG-650...

    Dell 1500 VA UPS

    What’s up with BFG ES-800 availability?

    What’s up with BFG ES-800 availability? It’s not even listed anymore at, and unavailable in other Canadian online stores… I’ve recently had to deal with BFG, and after receiving exceptional support, I wanted to go with this particular unit, but it's really hard to find. Is it EOL?

    Is this a good i7 setup?

    Hi, I've ordered the following parts, and I was wondering if you guys think it’s going to be a good stable setup, with some reasonable over clocking potential. I still have time to modify my order. Up to this point, I’ve used ASUS boards exclusively, but from the different reviews I've...

    Ratpadz XT

    Hi, Can anyone confirm that the Ratpadz XT and a DeathAdder would be a good match? By that, I mean no tracking issues. Also, since there is a discount going on, and since the holidays are almost there, I guess they are pretty overwhelmed by orders and requests, but what is the usual turn...

    Crazy squeaking sound coming from the video card when playing Crysis.

    Whenever I start Crysis, there is a really crazy squeaking sound coming from the video card (BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC Maxcore). I've contacted NCIX for an RMA, but this morning I found this on the inCrysis forums : "You have VSync disabled. With VSync disabled the movies and load screens (and...
