    DDR4 Supporting ATX ROG Mobos from Asus

    Any idea on when we can expect some of these? With that 980 card dropping, DDR 4 and the new i7 Extreme, I think I am ready to build... I was going to wait another year, but the timing is right... (I feel like Chef would like to sing that last line)... Cheers TG Community! Edit: Oh and what...

    Blu Ray Burning Software

    With the ever expanding size of ... wait for it ... storage media (sorry for the let down), I use external burnable media about as often as... well hardly ever to be honest. I think the last software I used to use, nearly 5-8 years ago was called Nero Burning Rom or something like that. I...

    When 'Free-to-Play' Becomes a Money Game

    Saw the Rackanfrazts link on Facebook and jammed over here 'fast as I could. Wow, NCSoft sticks it to the peoples again? Couldn't possible be the same company I lost my IGN gig over for telling Dhevrin to go eff himself. Well written Rob, and well played.

    Fitting that NORTON is now partnered with them. Perfectly fitting.

    The Booth Babes of Computex 2010

    I admit, I took the bait and laughed at myself for doing so. Page 1, TFE said: "WTF, where are the babes? Nice shots of booths, but this looks like every other bondoggle event I've ever been on. No babes no iLike." Page 2, TFE said: "Fantastic work Rob, true journalism here." As for...

    Crucial RealSSD 300 Instructions... Don't use it.

    Ahhh! Pertinent thread-piracy! I won't get into it here or elaborate on your lovely V2 review Kougar, but have you seen or heard the clamor concerning SATA-3 Drives and mobo/bios settings? I have not put it in yet, because I want to get this correct firmware in there where TRIM won't cause...

    OCZ Vertex 2 100GB Performance Preview

    I knew I should've just gotten a Corsair Sandforce 200GB drive. I mean I am sure the Vertex 2 would beat it as well, several technological nuances there. But if you get a chance to review the Sata 3 Crucial or any other Sata 3.0 drive, note the pain in the rear that goes into configuring a mobo...

    Crucial RealSSD 300 Instructions... Don't use it.

    I just thought it was funny, Kougar =D I know what I am getting into being an early adopter and all of that. I spoke to some techs at Crucial the other day and aside from that instruction 'just don't use it for now' I got some stats out of them. Only about 1% of the drives were bricked...

    Crucial RealSSD 300 Instructions... Don't use it.

    Just... don't use it for now. I had posted down below about other things, but among them was this Crucial RealSSD I am swapping for my P256 which I put in my bosses PC and shipped off yesterday. So I have this SATA 3.0 compatible mobo and this SATA 3 SSD drive. Apparently they've determined...

    When does Random / Sequential Reading and Writing come into Play?

    Very thorough and informative Kougar, thank you very much - as mentioned most of the resources I found either made the concept extremely abstract (I didn't do well in Calc 2 at Syracuse...) or just didn't do anything to answer the question. I am keeping one of the RealSSDs for myself! So given...

    Good, durable headset?

    How about a $35 rebuttal : If I could reverse my purchase, I would buy this I suspect.

    MS' Silverlight Software

    I didn't do too much browsing but I don't suspect the topic has been brought up in this fashion : is it wrong of me not to install Silverlight on any of my browsers or system? This makes most MS based content 'unviewable' by me, but, as a former flash designer, why won't they just acknowledge...

    Too TRIM? When SSD Data Recovery is Impossible

    I have seen similar forays into the flaws of Trim coupled with SSDs, not just in data loss but in deterioration of speed and access as well. Scary. I did enjoy the Asheron's Call 1 world builder though! =D

    ASUS P6X58D Premium

    I don't know how to classify the error, it was the first PC build I ever had, but the problem seemed VERY common (search google for EVGA FF). I just did so that I could answer your question and everything from 780 SLI (pre nehalem) and all their current offerings came up. This is not the...

    Good, durable headset?

    I have the Logitech G35 as well and I would be inclined to suggest you don't get this headset. A quick google search for reviews will prove my assertion that the quality is hardly 7.1 as suggested. Additionally, the logitech software (mind you I own numerous logitech components including the...

    OCZ joins NASDAQ

    You know what Rob, I am always actually a bit sad when a good company goes public like this - it is hard enough succeeding in business and becoming an icon as they have, but clearly they have even loftier capital-requiring ambitions and growth. I typically find that going public, they lose the...

    When does Random / Sequential Reading and Writing come into Play?

    SSD comparisons can be fun. Building a new system for my boss this time, I might be inclined to swap a few of my SSDs for hers! Namely my boot drive - Crucial's RealSSD 300. Great at sequential, apparenlty awful at random. This made me wonder, and google couldn't help me - when do these two...

    The Vicious Cycle of Gaming DRM

    I don't pirate software of any kind anymore for three reasons : 1) Spyware and Viruses - While I was always pretty savvy and it is true that most keygens simply generated false positives - every once in a while, I would find a system-ending piece of malware that'd cause me to write zeros and do...
