It has been a while since we last visited the PC Perspective Forums, what with the holidays and CES taking up large amounts of time, so it is only proper to take a look at what has been going on. One member is having troubles with their gaming rig, not during gaming though, only when trying to watch Netflix, while another has been tasked to build a secure connection between a Doctor’s office and a remote server.
If you are looking to build a high end system, check out this mega-post covering the setup and performance of a Core i7-3960 and GIGABYTE G1.Assassin2 utilizing Intel’s self contained watercooler. The Processor Forum has threads pointing out the limited benefits of switching an i7-920 for an i5-2500K while the Cases’n’Cooling Forum features a Cooler Master Storm Enforcer which has been modded into an homage to Dead Space 2. There is also an in depth look at how to make your own 3 bay, 5 drive adapter.
The Audio forum offers up some suggestions to a user with broken leads on their motherboard while in the Storage Forum the imminent death of a Caviar Black drive is discussed. Our Small Form Factor Forum has plenty of discussion about tablets and the Trading Post is stuffed with new For Sale threads. Head on over to the Forums and see what you can learn, teach or both!
