  1. I like this Keyboard. I use one of these, in fact all my desktop peripherals are ROCCAT. It's a bit overkill for me because I don't use or need macro keys but I do love the Cherry Blacks.
  2. I wonder how relevant that little screen will become now that you can get apps for your phone like Roccat Grid that essentially does the same thing.
  3. I'll stick with a decent mid tower. I have no real use for a full tower & no interest at all in ITX systems or cases.
  4. Not bad but I suspect it's successor will be even better. I'll wait for that.

    That'll be 1st prize. 2nd prize will be two Titans hopefully and 3rd prize will obviously be three.

    They make'em, people will always buy 'em. It's a mugs game.

    until you see the prices they give away at some benchmark communities, then that grand is well worth it If you're an enthusiast it may be worth it to you but never to me.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Reviewed

    It's all very nice and all at the moment but I can never imagine myself shelling out the kind of money this card will demand. I'd rather wait until Nvidia releases the GeForce 8 series, then purchase a high/mid range card for a fraction of the price. I can never quite get my head around someone willing to waste money on such a frivolous item (or two) that'll only have bragging rights for about a year. As nice as this card is, it's just won't be worth it. My opinion only.

    Corsair H70 Clogged

    It's better than nothing at all. If you've stored it upright in a cool dark place it should still be ok.

    Horrible Mouse Touchpad

    Good idea, then they'd have to give him a new machine, either that or show him the door

    Horrible Mouse Touchpad

    None specifically for that task that I'm aware of. Does anybody else in the company use the same laptop? If so check their's out. Yours could have a fault that the chumps in the IT dept. can't figure out. Also check for driver updates for your machine. Failing that, try begging for another laptop. I personally hate all touchpad's & always carry a supplementary mouse.

    Good Motherboard

    For gaming whether it be i5 or i7 any well known brand of mobo will get the job done. The more features you want, the more you pay. If you want to do serious overclocking, it'll cost even more. Boards from Gigabyte, Asus, Asrock, MSI & even Intel are fine. Your choice.

    Corsair H70 Clogged

    The HAF 922 usually has a large unfiltered side ventilation section & that's probably where your H70 gets most of it's air from. Make sure it's properly filtered. If you don't have access to fine mesh you can always make do with a pair of pantyhose but they too will have to be replaced regularly. If you have a side fan fitted it just compounds the problem. Your only other solution (& most effective) is to move to a less dusty region.

    Temps for i7-3770k

    Looks like you're concerned for no apparent reason.

    What were your last upgrades?

    A nice new lint free cloth to wipe the dust from my rig.

    Seems to be a pretty effective cooler. The looks don't hurt either.

    Thermaltake Level 10 Mouse Reviewed

    I can't comment on the Logitech as I never had the opportunity to test it but I did test the M60 which I inherited thereafter. It was a very competent & fairly comfortable mouse. The only problem I encountered was that the textured side grips wore out in no time flat hence it was retired to my vast collection of mice.

    Your Sound Equipment

    My hi tech solution. It also doubles up as my version of a budget friendly iPhone.

    Thermaltake Level 10 Mouse Reviewed

    I liked the review, very entertaining. Pity I can't say the same about the mouse. I tested this thing last month and never grieved when it was returned to the supplier.

    What brand keyboard do you use?

    I wouldn't use ROCCAT stuff even if it was free... Flashy, overpriced junk IMHO. Heh heh. That's exactly how I feel about some of Thermaltake's stuff. Especially their Level 10 things.

    What brand keyboard do you use?

    Me either Punchy catch line. Did you dream it up or are you using theirs? I use a CM Storm Trigger but hasn't anybody heard of ROCCAT. They're probably amongst the best peripheral makers in the business. I'm looking forward to their yet unreleased Ryos.

    What's wrong with that? That's how we grew up. I wanna tell you it was far better, safer & a lot more fun than it is today. Long live the hippy's

    Have you upgraded just your cpu before?

    Nope. That's why Broadwell processors soldered to the mobo wouldn't bother me.
