Power Supplies are one of the essential components when building a PC, and definitely worth investing in, for several reasons. Brand Reliability, System Wattage, Efficiency, and Cable Modularity are the main reasons for investing in a power supply, and we’ll go over each section here.
No...it’s not a Transformer. It’s not a Terminator either. Thankfully, all of the world-ending sentient robots aren’t in disguise of mechanical keyboard. Mechanical keyboards simply use a different key actuation technology than standard membrane keyboards do. We'll discuss that here!
When it comes to super-fast storage, there’s a few options, including SATA SSDs, M.2 SSDs, and PCI-E SSDs, in order of increasing speed.
Phenomenal & Exhaustive. That's how our event this past Saturday (March 4th) at Game-A-Thon at UNCG went. We had a wonderful showing, I was extremely satisfied with the flow and turnout.
Getting a High-Performance Custom PC is always a bunch of fun. It’s powerful, fast, and looks awesome. But over time, it can wear down. Luckily, there’s a few things you can do to keep your powerhouse system running smoothly.
I recently designed a PC called Silver Fury that used the NZXT S340 as the chassis. I meant to do a review on that case soon after, but I got busy with other things soon after...it happens. So here's the review that I was meaning to do.
