At least you have a good number of options with ATX. I am very lucky that the lower-end ASRock microATX board has been flawless and has all of the features that I want. The only other options for me...

The real highlight for me is the great, majestic music score that James Newton Howard wrote for this film. We don't get much orchestral force like this these days.

I also love the dark twist in...

Lip-synching is no surprise at all. These days musical performances are mostly about who has the biggest ass to shake around.

Anyway, I thought the comedic aspect of last night's show was good...

You guys are hardcore about this. :D

I am really loving the Corsair H105. I guess I should for the $115 spent.

I'm sticking with 4.3GHz on my 5820K. I can do 4.6 stable, but 4.3 allows for virtually dead silent total system operation under full load. It is much more than enough processing power, and I suspect...

Good episode. I was wondering when they were going to address the Redskins issue, and it was done in a way that pretty much only a Seinfeld writer could do it. Corbin Bernsen is yet another natural...

Hey, having overpowered hardware to run inefficiently coded games is half the fun. :D

GTA V will likely be a blast on that front. ;)

G.Skill 16GB at 2400 MHz.

I might get a higher speed 32GB kit in a couple of years when prices will likely be much more reasonable with latencies quite low. Even then such an upgrade would...

Perhaps he was busy doing another awful season of the "Kroll Show."

So The Master cannot be killed through any of the traditional means. Perhaps force-feeding him garbage like Taco Bell will do the trick, or have him watch just one episode of American "Reality" TV.

Excellent build, N8! I sure hope your initial Asus board didn't go up in smoke. It seems that even little ol' ASRock has better quality control these days.

I'll be damned. The gunshot will indeed only make him soft for a few days, maybe even just a couple in his case. He'll be up to run a half-marathon in a week. It was good to see some restraint in...

I really hope that this one was done well. I love good stealth-oriented gameplay, so this has the potential to really draw me in.
