  1. I have honestly never seen wireless charging actually being used. I would love a headphone jack and it used to be a dealbreaker for me but I guess I decided I could live with it.
  2. I'm still really bummed about this. Motorola was one of my favorite phone manufacturers.
  3. You still have to pay for the AIO though. Additionally it adds cost in the form of shipping, RnD (or more likely contracting), and again not everyone wants an 120mm AiO as their cooling solution. Of course they are going to have an AiOless SKU which renders my griping pointless. There is a reason though that intel doesn't include even the basic stock cooler with their high end CPUs.
  4. I also don't see how a 120 rad is going to fit in there unless they have some pretty flexible tubing. At the same time I can't say why else the packaging would be so large aside from aesthetics and wow factor.
  5. I know at this tier of CPU price becomes less of a factor, but also at this price point wouldn't most people want to buy their own cooling solution.
  6. I really hope the 120mm AIO rumors are untrue if they are not going to sell a version without the cooler (which I am sure they will).
  7. Hi guys, I have had a 290x hooked up to an awful 900p HP monitor for a while now and have recently been thinking about upgrading to a higher resolution one. My main criteria where 1080p or 1440p, 144hz, and freesync. It seems this monitor on Massdrop seems to fulfill all of those a decent price. Any reason not to buy it or are there any better panels for about the same price? Thanks in advance.
  8. Darn seems out of stock everywhere but Ill keep looking for it.
  9. Seems right up my ally, have you had any issues with it at all?
  10. Using an S340 Love the case but miss that 5.25 sometimes.
  11. Hey guys I have been working with a lot of HDD/SDDs recently and have needed to do quite a few clones/linux installs/general drive reading and I have really wanted a SATA to USB dock with preferably 2 slots so I dont have to open up my rig and pull sata cables out. What are some quality ones that I can have sitting on my desk but wont run me more than $75? USB 3.0 is pretty much a need here. Thanks in advance.
  12. Ok so right now I am trying to decide between the Ausus DG and the Sound Blaster Rx. Both are about the same price. What I really want is good audio (duh), virtual surround for gaming, and no nonesense drivers. Out of this two which would fit my use case better? EDIT: It looks like the newegg reviews for the Rx aren't that great... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102063&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker, LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
  13. Ok I'll look them through and consider each. I am leaning toward the SoundBlaster one right now.
  14. What is the difference between the DSX and DGX and what do I get in the Sound Blaster that is better?
