Boddaker and DarthBeavis at the Maker Faire
By Mike Clements, on August 1st, 2013
The Maker Faire is very interesting event. Here is a quote from their website that explains it very well:
"Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these "makers" come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned."
As part of their support for the 2013 Bay Area Maker Faire, NVIDIA had galactically renowned modders Brian "Boddaker" Carter and Richard "DarthBeavis" Surroz on hand to display their incredible computer building and modding skills. Speaking of skills, Boddaker made this Maker Faire sign from scratch.

Corsair Meets Intel's Ivy Bridge and Panther Point
By Mike Clements, on April 23rd, 2012
Intel always manages to assign some interesting code names to their chipsets and to their processors. For example, their two latest enthusiast product announcements are code named Panther Point (chipset) and Ivy Bridge (CPU). Although our corresponding secretive code names aren't secret, it's always great fun to use some Vengeance® memory to learn about the new products and of course see how they perform and overclock!
