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.

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.
