    Intel Retail Edge Winter Deal 2016

    We are within one verification period of the suspected winter deal dates so I say it is time to start this thread again. At the end of the Summer 2016 thread there was speculation as to what might be on the deal; m.2? 6 core? same things? I won't prognosticate but I will root for the 6800k or...

    Intel Retail Edge Holiday Deal 2015

    It's about that time of year again where we speculate and begin builds for what we think might be going up on the deal this year. I say every year I don't know if I am going to build something and then end up doing it anyway. For those who aren't sure what this is or if they qualify etc. go...

    Photos to the cloud only

    Hey everyone, needing some help or maybe just some clarification for my wife's Galaxy S4. She takes a lot of photos. We have a new kid so I guess I can't blame her because the kid is pretty cute. Anywho, she takes so many photos that it fills the phone every few weeks. She dumps them on to the...

    Intel Retail Edge Summer Deal 2014

    It looks to be right around the corner so I wanted to create a watch and discussion thread in anticipation of the event. Personally, I see another 4770K and 4930K deal since we haven't really had anything new since the Winter Deal. I am primed to build a new ITX system so the 4770K would fit...

    Intel Retail Edge Program Requirments

    Hello all. I logged into my Intel Retail Edge account the other day to check on the store products and do a couple learning modules as well as to check out the new layout.

    Intel Retail Edge Winter Deal

    Here we are again. Does anyone have any guesses or wants for this year? I would jump all over an Ivy Bridge-E proc if they made them as cheap as they did last time.

    Little help with a mobo heatsink

    I was upgrading inside of my main rig yesterday and everything was going rather smoothly until I tried to install my H100. I have a Coolermaster Storm Sniper case and an MSI X79A-GD45 (8D) motherboard for my socket 2011 upgrade. The H100 block fits nicely on the motherboard and mobo fits...

    Awesome deals at Meritline! Wait a minute...

    Just received my daily Meritline deals e-mail and was a little perplexed. Have they always done stupid stuff like this? Is the shipping free and that is the awesome part of this or was the marketing guy asleep at the wheel?

    What should I use my 64gb ssd for?

    I received a 64gb Crucial M4 ssd for Christmas. This is my first ssd and I am extremely excited to get it in the machine.

    Scythe Gentle Typhoons Anywhere?

    I hope I am pleading to the correct crowd here. I can't find a Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850 anywhere on the net. They are all on back order and each "auto notify" I set up hasn't sent a thing in about the last 2 months. It isn't that I have my heart set on one of these it is that I already have...

    I don't know the site, I don't claim they are reputable. I don't know how much shipping is. All I know is that this seems like a pretty good deal if this site is on the up and up and the shipping isn't like $30. Have at it and yes, I totally snagged this off SD. Hopefully the community here...

    Am I crazy or did switches get more expensive?

    I bought my D-Link gigabit 8 port switch about a year ago for $40 with a $20 rebate AND free shipping. That rebate was going on for what seemed like forever as well. As you can see I am not looking for high performance gear but doesn't it seem like a lot of the consumer grade switches have...
