    P67/Z68 ITX: what the manufacturers say

    Just my opinion, but I don't think you will see much, if any, of a difference between dual channel and quad channel with Ivy Bridge on Z68. Sandy Bridge (and I'm assuming Ivy Bridge) is not bandwidth starved for memory. This Xbits labs article shows that moving to faster and faster memory...

    Sandy Bridge Graphics or 8600GT

    Not exactly hybrid SLI, but Sandy Bridge and the Z68 chipset do suppport Lucidlogix's Virtu technology.

    critique my build?

    Lot's of questions that have already been asked... Why 2 x ssd? Why 2 x GPU for only 1900x1080? Why 16GB? Doesn't seem necessary for usage describe... Also, personally don't like 1900x1080. Here is a HP LCD that is 1900x1200 for almost the same price...

    Installed the Corsair H60 on a 2600K. 40 degrees C. good?

    From reading posts regarding a number of temp monitoring programs, this is what I was lead to believe as well. Intel temp sensors appears to have the most error at lower temps, they are calibrated more accurately at or new throttling temps. As Tsumi said, unless you have really crazy temps at...

    CoreStore MV mini-PCIe SSD

    Do you plan to do this with WHS v1 or the newer version? The reason I ask is it tried to install WHS v1 (with PP3) on an Intel X25-M 40GB SSD and it wouldn't work. During the loading screen from the install DVD it said it required at least a 65GB drive. I have no idea why it would require...

    RIM Unveils iPad Competitor

    After 7 previous generations of buggy, under supported and flaky hardware/software you show how think Archos is going to get is "shit together"? You sir are an optimist, and this coming from a Archos owner (an Archos PocketDish DAP from many a year ago).

    Samsung Galaxy Tab on Video

    There is a potentially interesting update to the Android table issue. It appears Google is considering blocking tablets from the app store. Source

    Samsung Galaxy Tab on Video

    The prices maybe rumor, but I found it interesting that one UK e-tailer already had it listed for pre-order. As such, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Tab listed in the US for about the same in dollars (~$650), which is close to what the 16GB 3G iPad lists for ($630)...

    Samsung Galaxy Tab on Video

    I believe it when I see it. The Nexus One was Google's own phone and the only one to do this. No other company has done this, at least none that I'm aware of. You are pointing out the exception, not the rule. (Otherwise, why would you see articles like the one at Wired.) It maybe possible...

    Samsung Galaxy Tab on Video

    From what I've read, this is not "possible" (in quotes on purpose, keep reading). To get access to the Google apps store, the unit must be linked to a data service. They could make an Android table without the phone provider, but then it would not be able to load any apps. That surely would...

    OCZ Drops DRAM Production

    You are correct, not everyone needs highend RAM. The difference is, it doesn't make economic sense for OCZ to provide the entry level stuff. To little ROI (return on investment) for OCZ, there are plenty of other supplies who can sell you the cheap stuff! :D

    i5 vs i7 bang for the buck?

    If OC'ing is just based off of luck, how do you know which MB/CPU is "best"? Unless of course you buy used/proven parts. :confused:

    Critique what I'm looking at building

    Agreed, a quad core CPU for a HTPC is just wasted money. Nothing wrong with it, just totally unnecessary. If you're still looking to build a unit check out this thread at AVS forums. It has many recommended builds for all price ranges.

    Russound SMC-35- Cablecard sweetness

    Russound SMC-35- Cablecard sweetness

    Yeah, it wasn't exactly clear. It appears from the description that the cablecards are included, but I thought you were supposed to get them through your service provider. If they are included, that makes a great deal even better.

    LGA 775 Upgrade recommendation?

    1) I think your choice of the Q9550 is a good one. If I remember correctly, I believe quad core OC pretty nice on that Gigabyte MB. 2) As other's have noted, if you plan to OC your memory will probably hold you back. You can get some nice CAS4 DDR2800 2x1GB kit at Newegg for ~$50, which...
