Ballistix Elite PC4-28800 4x8GB Review (Page 1 of 10)

In my GeIL Super Luce RGB SYNC GLS416GB3200C14DC 2x8GB review last month, I talked about interesting American Express promotions. Given this is another RAM review, what better time is there than to talk about another interesting promotion in the introduction? In the past few months, I participated in two eBay promotions, where one was spend $5 to get $5 off and the other was spend $3 to get $3 off. In both times, I simply spent the minimum amount required -- maybe plus a few cents over -- simply to get the promotion dollars. But there is more to the story. Since there is not much you can get for $3 or $5, I ended up buying tempered glass screen protectors for my iPhone X. Like, a lot of iPhone X screen protectors: So much that I ended up selling them locally for a tidy 10,000% profit. Not bad for five minutes of work and waiting a month to get things from somewhere in China to me here in Canada. I think there are many winners in this story, including eBay themselves, given the great publicity, but what made my experience a positive one was I followed a fundamental rule of business: Buy low, sell high. No matter where you look, I think everything in the world follows a set of fundamental rules like the Ballistix Elite PC4-28800 4x8GB I am reviewing today. Equipped with absolutely no RGB LEDs or anything else of that nature, this set of RAM gets you back to the basics: Big capacity, high bandwidth, quality ICs, and a lifetime warranty. Is this a recipe for success? Read on to find out!

NZXT HUE 2 Ambient Lighting Kit v2 Review

In North America, it seems like everyone loves their trucks. In fact, the top three bestselling vehicles are a trio of domestic pickup trucks. In my opinion, trucks have a good functional use, especially as they are capable of hauling loads and have towing capabilities. Just like other cars and vehicles, there are also people that just like a pickup as their mode of transportation, whether it adds extra height for the driver or for perceived safety. On the other hand, I question why people choose to get a truck in the city. Often, I see a lot of truck drivers do not really use the hauling capabilities of their pickup truck. Personally speaking, these drivers can also be obnoxious in their driving because of their large size, as they end up tailing others and taking up too much space in the parking lot. I am sure you have seen trucks parked in the middle of a lot over multiple lines. However, one thing that really grinds my gears are pickup trucks with illegally installed HID headlights. As a result, other drivers have to deal with the blinding glare while a truck driver is unaware of their retina burning lamps. Again, I am sure trucks in general have a functional side, but I often think they are in the wrong environment if used solely for people carriers and not moving loads. When NZXT announced the second revision of their HUE 2 Ambient Lighting Kit, I had to ask the same question. We often see these lighting strips inside a case, but these are intended to be used on the back of the monitor. Is this also a case of a strange environment for lighting, or does the functional reason for them make them a good choice? Let us read on to find out!

Deviantart Is Growing Up With Its Biggest Redesign Ever

From The Verge: In social network years, DeviantArt is ancient.
