GeIL Super Luce RGB SYNC GLS416GB3200C14DC 2x8GB Review (Page 1 of 10)

Of the three credit cards I have, my favorite card has to be the American Express. Although it is not accepted everywhere -- this is why I have two Mastercards -- it is accepted in more places than most people think, and there are generally more benefits to using my American Express compared to even my Mastercard World Elite. But beyond things like everyday benefits or excellent customer service, the company often runs interesting promotions I scratch my head at. I recall a promotion a few years ago where spending $25 at Amazon will get you $25 of statement credit. I am pretty sure most people know Amazon accepts American Express; not to mention $25 is not exactly a small number. Therefore, it is quite possible people were only spending $25 to get their free $25, which was exactly what I did. Regardless of whether this promotion made sense, I used it anyway, and American Express is getting some free promotion given I am talking about it right now. There are other things that do not make a lot of sense, like slapping RGB on every component in your PC ranging from fans to power supplies. But everyone uses it and it sells, so who are we to question? A few years ago, I reviewed the GeIL EVO X GEX416GB3200C16DC 2x8GB, my first RGB memory kit. Fast forward a few years and after many more kits, today we are back with another set of RGB RAM from GeIL. How will the Super Luce RGB SYNC GLS416GB3200C14DC 2x8GB stack up? Read on to find out!

Noctua NH-U12A Review (Page 1 of 4)

As you may have read from my hot potato game I am currently in, I left off the story with the pink and purple castle in my camera bag. I knew I had to plan for a way to return it to this friend, who I will call Ellen, without her figuring it out. I decided the only way I could hide the figurative potato somewhere sneaky without drawing suspicion would be to get a friend involved. Ellen was in the senior high group and I was helping with the younger group, so I also chose someone who would see her more. That same evening, I found my accomplice and approached them while all the youth were playing games. As I was doing so, I turned around and saw Ellen behind me, filling her cup with water and ominously drinking water while staring at me. At that moment, I thought she saw through all my plans and grew nervous if my plans would even work. Instead of bailing, I decided to distract her. Whipping out my camera, I showed my accomplice the things I had taken pictures of that day. The time seemed to pass slowly by, but she finally finished her water and left. I quickly transferred the castle to my friend, praying Ellen would not find this plush until later. Sometimes when we look at computer air cooling and heatsinks, we may think bigger is better. In some ways, this can be true. Noctua thinks otherwise with the NH-U12A. As the number in the name denotes, this is a 120mm radiator, with two 120mm fans included. However, Noctua claims this cooler can deliver 140mm class performance. Despite its smaller appearances, are their claims actually true? Or are they just distracting us with fake information? I guess we can read on to find out!
