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 H50s in Clash of the Titans
By Mike Clements, on April 30th, 2013
NVIDIA has unleashed a Titan among us mortals. The new NVIDIA GTX Titan GPU offers amazing graphics processing power while consuming up to 250w of power. The stock cooling setup on these cards looks pretty impressive but of course, there are always people out there that are not content with stock.
Recently, I stumbled across a system build thread over at the EVGA forums. Member "dustingg" has taken two Hydro Series H50 CPU coolers and with some slight tubing modifications, he's attained cooling results rivaling much more expensive custom cooling solutions. We applaud dustingg for his ingenuity and we also really like his choice of PSUs.
Carbide Series 200R sub $1000 Gaming PC Build
By Jake Crimmins, on March 1st, 2013
Building a quality gaming rig doesn't take thousands of dollars if you choose your components carefully. With this in mind I set out to build a gaming rig that could handle any of today's games including Crysis 3 for under $1000. I priced the entire build out on Newegg and came in at $937.92 before tax and shipping. Let's start the build and take a look at the components I chose.
Building a system with the Graphite Series 600T Silver Edition and Dominator Platinum memory
By Jeff Checchi, on July 6th, 2012
Recently we announced quite a few new products, and updates to current product lines. Some of the most exciting are the new Dominator Platinum DDR3 memory with LED lighting, and the new Graphite Series 600T Silver mid-tower case. What better time to do a system build than when we have two new products that compliment each other so beautifully! We will also be using our brand new Force Series GS SSD with its fast toggle NAND technology, and our recently updated GS800 PSU. While we are at it, I am going to swap out all the stock fans from the 600T with our new Air Series AF120 Quiet Edition fans, and we will be using our SP120 Quiet Edition fans in place of the stock Hydro Series H100 fans. The silver and blue theme turned out great! If you have never built a system before, or you are not familiar with some of our new products from then check out the video below!
