    Star Wars The Old Republic Preview

    I agree, after the new and shiny feeling wears off you quickly find yourself bored and sometimes annoyed by the various meaningless quests, bad dialogue scenes, bugs, bad to mediocre at best PVP, and other underdeveloped portions of the game. While playing as the most cruel evil sith bastard...

    Intel Core i7-3960X - Sandy Bridge E Processor Review @ [H]

    Yeah, in the same boat here. I am not spending that kind of money on a new build for just better performance in a handful of multi-threaded applications (none of which would kill me to wait a few extra moments). I will just put together another SB system and pickup the better IB next year.

    ENERMAX Announces The Fulmo and Fulmo GT

    It was only a matter of time till some company picked up on the popularity of the CM 690/692 and the amount of interest towards a full-tower version. I am wondering if Coolermaster is also coming out with one based on this frame as well. However, I like the looks of this full-tower a bit...

    Rosewill BLACKHAWK ULTRA Gaming Super Tower Supports HPTX

    The EVGA SR3 is another HPTX form-factor motherboard (~13.6 in x ~15 in), as the motherboard mounting holes give us a pretty good measurement and a good comparison to the existing SR2. The size is essentially the exact same to SR2 and not an EATX (12 in x ~13 in). Not to mention, the mounting...

    Rosewill BLACKHAWK ULTRA Gaming Super Tower Supports HPTX

    It looks like a giant Coolermaster 692 without the silver-trim and the better mesh, but with the innards of a Xigmatek Elysium. I wonder if they will sell the Blackhawk's side-panels separately at some point, it is functionally better then the Elysium's current offerings. Not to mention, you...

    ASRock X79 Extreme9

    They probably got their own 3-way SLI-bridge for this motherboard. However, I am unaware of any information that says you cannot put the daughterboard in slot 1 and all your video cards in the remaining slots.

    ASRock X79 Extreme9

    Looks like a very nice board, but that four-pin molex connector looks awfully close to the first PCI-E slot and might pose a problem with some connectors. Also, that VRM heatsink's silver shroud looks like it's hanging over one DIMM slot, but it looks easily removable at least.

    Corsair Hydro Series H80

    It would likely be the Corsair H100 (dual 120mm) or the Maingear EPIC 180 (180mm).

    Corsair Hydro Series H80

    It's nice to see the new AIO kits are performing better. I am however more interested in seeing reviews of the Corsair H100 AIO, but it seems our wait has been extended a little longer. I don't see why he has to find you a link, as you are clearly intelligent enough to do a Google search on...

    Corsair Announces New Hydro Series Liquid CPU Coolers

    That was one of the online retailers, they removed it, and they have not relisted it yet. But, you can find the product page here now without the price. It's available at: Provantage for $115~ Shopbit for $119~

    Corsair Announces New Hydro Series Liquid CPU Coolers

    I saw the H100s listed at $115~ at other retailers when it was accidentally leaked ahead of schedule and promptly removed. They are suggesting it'll be around $119~, but Direction is saying they are going to price it at $149.99 while being on sale for $105. I guess it's still a deal of sorts...

    Corsair Announces New Carbide Series Cases

    I do like the look and quality of the 650D, but the lower price, great functionality, with far superior cooling options of the 400R/500R got it beat. I look forward to whatever final alterations are made to this chassis as it's close to being perfect. However, would like to see a version with...

    140mm Fans Advice

    I have been using the Koolance 140x25mm fans (FAN-14025HBK and FAN-14025HLED) in most of my builds, which run around 1700RPM and have Dual Ball-Bearings for about $15. They do push a good amount of air and their static pressure is also pretty good for heat sinks and radiators. You might want...

    I should have mentioned Mountain Mods do custom orders for panels and case designs as well, but glade someone was able to help you with the custom DD case.

    Coolermaster CM 690 II Advanced

    Yeah, it is one of my favorite cases on the market, lots of fan mounts, and can easily fit two radiators.

    You can try Mountain Mods, which has various computer cases that can be heavily customized with various panels and materials.

    Prolimatech Genesis Heatpipe HSF

    Maybe they should correct their temperature results page, as the Genesis was tested with Xigmatek's XLF-F1453 140mm fans @ ~1000 RPM and not the better performing Thermalright TR-1212PSL 120mm fans @ ~1500 RPM. Also, would have been nice to see results of the Genesis with the latter fans...

    Prolimatech Genesis All-In-One CPU Cooler

    They should at least sort that large comparison list by their recorded temperatures. Otherwise looks like a good cooler, but they should have did more thorough testing of it's capabilities (lazy testing). Here is a picture of it barely clearing Corsair Dominators.

    Rift: Planes of Telara... looking good! (MMORPG)

    I played it for about twenty-hours now, several characters of various classes, participated in at least fifty rifts, invasions, and footholds. So here is my question, when does this game turn fun? I cannot find anything of a story in this game to get interested in, the quests are bland and...

    A Monitor That Prints Screen Caps?

    If it's anything like most printers, it'll probably start to break down just after warranty runs out, and the repairs will cost more then actually buying multiple printers.

    High-Tech LED Hourglass Traffic Light Concept

    I think shapes would be fine and found out some countries already use something similar for the same reason (colorblind drivers). So it's not that hard to see the already in-use round light as green, yellow being an inverted traingle (similar to a yield sign) or a diamond, and a square for red...

    High-Tech LED Hourglass Traffic Light Concept

    I am also color-blind between mostly shades of blue-to-purple and green-to-brown, but still see shades in-between. I can tell easy between most traffic light stages, except the oddball ones that make yellows almost look green and vice-verse. I would prefer a traffic light system with a unique...

    Razer Naga

    Razer updated the Naga drivers with full macro and button remapping some time ago (in addition to their custom interface addons), which was one of the largest complaints against it. So it shouldn't be a problem anymore.

    I tend to get wrist pain and numbness in the right-side of my hand from time to time, a wrist support brace/band resolves that problem for me when it comes up.

    Female Gamers Get No Respect

    All gamers are treated with the same default level of respect based on the individual's own gauge. You loose or earn that respect the moment you open you mouth and your actions during play. Furthermore, everyone is hounded (praise/need/insulted) at some point when it peaks someone else's...

    The Duke Voice Acting for Valve’s DotA

    I actually preferred League of Legends in a few ways with it's better shop systems, spells that actually took some skill and team cordination to execute effectively, but the micro-payments and a problematic launcher corrupting updates where a put off. Heroes of Newerth to me just felt like a...

    An iPhone 4 Recall Less Costly Than Apple's Share Drop

    Continuing to manufacture, market, and sell defective phones is only going to continue to hurt their market share especially when they keep making lame-excuses and denying the problem exists. Apple cannot bury every problem and is finally getting what was coming to them. Their best option is...

    Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 Headphone Review @ [H]

    Got my A700 about a two-weeks ago. The sound is huge step above my Plantronics Gamecom 367 headset while not pinching my glasses to my head or giving me that irritating itch. I cannot even conceive the idea of going back to my old headset now.

    The GTX-480 Silencer

    The Silverstone Fortress FT02 Case has dampening foam on the side panels, and it's better airflow means the video card's fan does not have to run as high to compensate. The Silverstone Raven RV02 is very-similar in design. I know my Coolermaster CM 690 II Advanced with over 16 fans has a...

    Well, the reason i'm replacing my headset is to get better audio and a better comfort level, and do not want to upgrade horizontally to another headset. Unless Sennheiser PC350 is going to provide equal or better audio quality then the ATH-A700 / ATH-AD700, but heard of a lot of people...
