02/05/2016 - 18:44

The Swiftech H320 X2 is obviously designed for those who like to show off the insides of their system, parts of both the reservoir and waterblock are clear as is the piping and there are indeed LEDs on the cooler.  It is larger than the previous...

A friendly reminder about your OneDrive storage amount

02/05/2016 - 17:06

Remember the good old days when OneDrive moved from offering you 1TB of storage to an unlimited amount?  That did not last too long, they changed their minds and dropped the paid service back to 1TB and the free version from 15GB to 5GB, with a...

Mods like memory; the Gainward GTX 960 Phantom 4GB

02/04/2016 - 17:51

If you don't have a lot of cash on hand for games or hardware, a 4k adaptive sync monitor with two $600 GPUs and a collection of $80 AAA titles simply isn't on your radar.  That doesn't mean you have to toss in your love of gaming for...

Remember the thrill of finding the actual download button for the software you need, hidden on a webpage featuring at least four other large download buttons leading to unrelated and generally nasty software?  Well those horrible people at Google...

Next on the list of companies which should know better is Malwarebytes, but it is not as bad as some say

02/03/2016 - 12:46

Considering the business that Malwarebytes is in you can expect to see a lot of negative press about a gaping security hole in the near future and while there is a vulnerability it is not as bad as many will make it out to be.  The issue lies in...

The Wraith in action

02/02/2016 - 15:26

By now you should have memorized Josh's look at AMD's new processors and FM2+ motherboards, unfortunately the one thing we were missing was time to test the unit (which totally did arrive, sorry!).  TechGage on the other hand did receive an...

Never heard of Skyrmions? One day you may have a drive full of them.

In the search for higher density data storage some rather arcane materials are being studied for their unique magnetic properties.  The latest research being conducted is with extremely thin multilayered films, in this specific case iridium-cobalt-...

If you thought the DDR4-3000 kit was excessive, meet Corsair's Vengeance LPX DDR4-4000

02/01/2016 - 17:38

That is no typo, the 8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX kit which Hardware Canucks just reviewed is indeed 4000MHz effective at timings of 19-23-23-45.  The small size of the dual channel kit helps keep the MSRP to $225, affordable for what it is and not...

Your Cat6 cabling not behaving as you would expect? Turns out that is not a Fluke

02/01/2016 - 16:49

The difference between Cat5(e) and Cat 6 will not be obvious for home users but is certainly noticeable in large business deployments.  Cat5 and 5e are capable of providing 100MHz whereas Cat6 is rated to 250MHz, assuming it is installed to...
