Podcast #723 – Intel Arc Balanced Builds, ASUS Changes Warranty, Monoprice Mic & be quiet! Dark Power reviews + MORE!

Catch up with the Monoprice Mic and be quiet! Dark Power 850w reviews, plus SSD performance software from Solidigm, and a big balanced build discussion.  Don’t miss our favorite Security Corner and Gaming Quick Hits segments either!

This was recorded the night before NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 4060 Family but we still had plenty to discuss, as you can see from the list of topics in the time stamps below.  Catch our quick news drop on the RTX 4060 Family launch here though, it’s right sized.
