Episode 3 - Handy Tech Under $100

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is the third video in our "handy tech under $100" series. I hope you enjoy it. The idea is to take our usual "unboxing" and "review" concepts and apply them to some little interesting things that we bought or noticed over the last little while.

Yeah it was a render issue. I fixed it with t3h YouTubez, but it's processing right now.

t3h YouTubez ftw!

In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only a GTX 1080, just a single 1080, where my glorious PC once stood....

Those magnetic trays can be a lifesaver..

 

Once again Canada gets the short end of the sick because that FiveFour Club charges $25 per month for shipping.  At $85 a month I don't think that's a good deal.

I don't like the Sivlerstone SATA cables. You could also just use regular right angled ones i guess...? 

 

NOT when you have one right behind the other.  one port will be fine, but that port will block the other one.

 

 

 

 

also, what is that red coiled cable next to the silverstone one?  did you talk about it?  or is it just a regular cable you coiled?

So they have the comfy ear tips for Razer Moray only, I wonder if they are compatible with Razer Hammerhead.

Those Silverstone cables are 89 euro each on German Amazon, so the cable could be more expensive than the SSD you are trying to connect to the motherboard :/

When the ports are located like this you won't be able to use half of them with regular right angled cables.

It looks like a regular cable.

Have you looked at eBay. The are definitely cheaper than €89 but still expensive for a single cable. The drawback to this is that LinusMediaGroup doesn't get a kickback  :(

With shipping to Denmark they're about €20, it will get cheaper the more cables you buy though.

I'm able to get them from a Danish retailer at €10, so maybe you should take a look at some German retailers.

I couldn't find them on Caseking, Alternate or Mindfactory :/
