Computer Related News Reviews & Information Websites

Post by 4hams on Sat Jan 22, 2011 3:39 pm

Hey folks I am interested in knowing what websites you folks use to research anything related to computer parts or peripherals. Do you folks tend to just do a goodle type search when looking for something or are there specific sites that you frequent for information and up to the minute Computer Technology News.

I am not talking for tech support but rather Hardware Information and News such as cases, motherboards, cpu's, ram, hard drives, mice, keyboards, optical drives, external inclosures gpu's and so on.

Please post links to any and all sites that you frequent as this list may be helpful to our members.

I hope this is what you mean....

For PSU reviews I always look at jonnyguru
http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews
.... he overdoes it some in that he takes the damn things apart but the testing I can relate to

For watercooling stuff I go to XS and Skineelabs. A lot of the tests have been done by various members at XS and elsewhere (the link below is for a great real life fans test)

http://skinneelabs.com/ for pumps, rads and all that kind of stuff

Introduction to overclocking @ Tech Reaction ...example...

then for hands on and help Pureoverclock ...example....

If you ever want to get really technical then pay anandtech a visit...example...

Hey grumpy, thank you so much! I have been at a few of those sites and do visit anandtech almost daily and of course PUREOC. I am just looking for resources as i may start posting news and reviews here on a regular basis again and see if we can bring this place to life or not...

I just realised I did not really answer the question on some things..

Mice keyboards optical I tend to use what I know or ask around so that would be here Pure and XS .... I don't use cases much but tend to rely on Pure there

MB's ram and cpu's I tend to be a late adopter of new tech so more of the same for these too but rather than reviews I watch the posts on WCG community at XS ...these guys run stuff 24/7 which soon finds any weaknesses in kit especially when they are a worldwide bunch so some high temps people too of course among them you will find both cautious and bold overclockers so it is all out there for me in just a few places ... Me? I like the vibe of those sort of people who give back to mankind their attitude to helping is a cut above

Conclusion: Deton's threads did more for Pure than Most people realise ...reviews are great and will help too...careful naming of topics will help too if you think "what would people enter as a Google search string"

Again...ask if you need anything
