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.
Getting the Most Out of Your Intel CPU: New XMP Memory Certifications
By Mike Clements, on May 20th, 2011
Several years ago, Corsair worked with Intel® on the development of the Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP). These profiles are used to store overclocking information on the memory module, so your system can be overclocked to a known-stable value by adjusting a single setting in the BIOS.
We are big fans of Intel XMP, and we'd like to announce a bunch of new Intel XMP certifications for the latest 2nd Generation Intel Core™ processor family!
