Welcome to the “Twenty-Tens”, which can also be referred to as “the age of the subscription box industry”. These days, one can get a subscription box for nearly anything, from pet supplies to nerdy toys, and the market is ever-increasing each year now, more and more. It’s fairly typical for folks to subscribe to these, as the business model is pretty solid: You pay a certain amount of money, in a pre-designated plan rate – which includes the shipping costs, and the company you’ve subscribed to sends you a package with a bunch of “stuff” in it. It’s like the modern-age grab-bag, and more-often-than-not the goodies are great!

modboxx-logo-full - RHS Custom 03 - 838x414 subscription boxSure, there are things that don’t cater to everyone all the time, and that’s to be expected. We are humans, after all (unless you’re an alien, dog, horse, etc., but then I highly doubt you’d even be reading this article anyway, haha), and we’re rather diverse. The key component, however, is that these sub boxes are geared toward niche markets, which definitely helps to narrow the field some. That being said, there are some markets which span practically the entire planet Earth, and the latest – and quite possibly the greatest – to hit this spectrum, is a little company called “ModBoxx”. Established in 2014, from an idea kicked around for a few years, ModBoxx is a subscription box service that  comes to you by one Travis Kolpack, a computer modder in-and-of-himself. It’s only befitting that a modder bring this to fruition, as this ensures that it mimics the FUBU business plan of “For Us, By Us”, and that’s how you know it’s going to work.

Who better to market a subscription box of modding supplies and product than someone who would use it themselves? Nobody, that’s who. One of the best parts of this, is that it’s not simply limited to modders, as it’s geared toward all PC builders as a whole! But, you don’t have to take my word for it, as I was able to get a quote directly from the man himself:

“Geared towards modders and PC builders around the globe, ModBoxx will include tools, safety equipment, accessories, collectibles, hardware, and custom one-off items.

Our goal is to provide a monthly box of inspiration, and for some, a monthly box of needed tools and safety equipment, to ensure modding gets done properly with safety in mind. We will also be including other items, like PC collectibles and custom one-off items, to keep each month interesting for subscribers. With that said, we want this monthly surprise box to spread the likes of modding across the globe, get more people involved in modding and building their own PCs, and get more brands globally recognized.

We are going to be working with great, well established companies we all like and love, but we will also be featuring selected smaller companies. To provide a further take on this, we will be providing subscribers with branded products from Nvidia, AMD, Corsair, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, Thermaltake, Primochill, Monsoon, MNPCTECH, ModBunker/Lutro0 Customs, Maximum Ordnance PCs, Overkill PCS, EKWB, AlphaCool, Swiftech, Mayhems, and many, many more! Overall, this will be a service similar to Loot Crate or Nerd Block. The issue I have seen with these companies, is the area they cover in each month is wide-spread. That leaves abit more room to disappoint. We believe that, by gearing it towards a more unique industry in that of Custom PC Building and PC Modding, we have a much smaller chance of disappointing. PC gear is just that – PC gear. Sure, everyone has their personal favorite companies, but on a broader spectrum, there really aren’t any Star Wars Vs. Star Trek or Marvel Vs. DC cutthroat battles in the modding and PC building realm.

Currently, we are in the pre-ordering stage. This is to ensure proper numbers while we acquire supplies, products, and other business-related items. Pre-orders will run until mid-February, 2015. This first run of ModBoxxes will be sent out sometime in mid-March, 2015. As for cost, this has been the hardest to project and downright mind-boggling. We want to provide great and exciting products each and every month, so the initial monthly price will be a bit higher than other currently-available subscription services. The only real difference, is we won’t be providing any cheap, gimmicky filler products. Everything will be of great quality and also, from well-known and respected companies.

The current pre-order subscription prices are:

$25 – Monthly Subscription Level for US Residents.

$35 – Monthly Subscription Level for Non-US Residents.

$75 – 3 Month Subscription Level for US Residents.

$85 – 3 Month Subscription Level for Non-US Residents.

$150 – 6 Month Subscription Level for US Residents.

$160 – 6 Month Subscription Level for Non-US Residents.

These prices are guaranteed for the first year, as well just for subscribing early. If you, by chance, miss out on the pre-order pricing, no need to worry. The prices will have a slight increase, but nothing major. We will keep ModBoxx as affordable and worthwhile as possible. We will also be including some bonus items exclusive to members that pre-order. These are to include – but are not limited to – custom radiator grills and a one-off custom t-shirt. Another thing we are doing is an EPIC end of the year giveaway. Each level of subscription will be equal to a specific number of entries: 1 for monthly level, 3 for 3 month level, and 6 for 6 month level. EPIC is maybe, in short, an understatement for what’s planned. The year end prize will be valued at an estimated $1,500.00!”

modboxx-indiegogo-box subscription box - use in article

They also currently have a promotional video, which helps to explain it better as well:

The countdown clock is active, right now, over at mod-boxx.com. They are also currently running an IndieGoGo page to gain funding for this, which is basically you just pre-paying for your subscription(s) the same as you would with any other subscription box service, and they also have well-designed Facebook and Twitter  social media sites as well. I highly suggest that, if this is something you may be interested in, either as a PC builder or modder (modding doesn’t just span the PC industry, as modification is something that most everyone does just about every day of their lives anyway – PC modding is just the primary focus here), you should most definitely join in on this if you can, and especially keep an eye out. There’s no telling what kind of awesome will be announced from here on!

Until next time, I’m Ronald DMNKLR Smith, and I want to know what you want to know about. ;)

Welcome back folks! Are you already getting into the “holiday buying spirit”, like so many others around the world are? Are you a gamer or know someone who is? Looking to snag up some awesome PC gaming deals, by chance? Well the action continues, this time over at Bundle Stars! Starting off, we have an AWESOME flash sale still running (for roughly 1 more day, so hurry if you want in on it!) – Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition… a WHOPPING 80% off!!! That’s right, folks, it’s currently sporting a $3.99 USD price tag, which is practically unheard-of for such a great game! If you don’t yet know anything about this game, to start off it’s made by the same fine folks who have brought us the Mortal Kombat series for all of these great many years. It even uses the same game engine as the most recent Mortal Kombat game, in case you weren’t aware.

 

injustice 01As you can clearly see, there are even some great bundle deals going on as well. It is Bundle Stars, after all. ;)

 

Injustice isn’t the only killer deal going on, however – and it truly would be an injustice to the others if I weren’t to mention them. From Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition @ $4.99 USD, to Lego Harry Potter,  Years 1-4 & Years 5-7, at a whopping $4.99 USD each, Gauntlet @ $9.99 USD (even a 4-pack for a meager $29.99 USD – a “buy-3-get-1-free” deal) and even Scribblenauts Unlimited at $4.99 USD as well. There are even some games as low as $1.00 USD! This sale is going really well so far, but as with all other great things, it won’t last forever.

 

injustice 02

 

Well, that’s it for now folks, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for other great deals like this. I’ve accounts in many different places, so I see deals pop up like crazy. In the meantime, it truly would be an injustice to miss out on these great deals, so if you can afford to get something(s) there, I say go for it! If you do, please comment below, and tell us what all you got, whether it’s a gift or for yourself (if you want to, of course), etc.

 

For the time being, this is Ronald DMNKLR Smith (feel free to add me on Steam) bringing you another epic PC gaming price alert, and looking forward to bringing you even more! Until next time folks, remember that I want to know what you want to know about. Have a blessed day!

UtechSmart Saturn Backlit Gaming Keyboard Review http://www.dragonblogger.com/utechsmart-saturn-backlit-keyboard/ http://www.dragonblogger.com/utechsmart-saturn-backlit-keyboard/#comments Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:00:51 +0000 http://www.dragonblogger.com/?p=45720 The UtechSmart Saturn Backlit gaming keyboard is a fantastic near mechanical keyboard with several backlit color options for less than thirty dollars.

The post UtechSmart Saturn Backlit Gaming Keyboard Review appeared first on Dragon Blogger Technology.

]]>
So I had a whole two weeks of using the UtechSmart Saturn MMO Gaming Keyboard exclusively and I have to say I am quite used to it and can type really well.  The keys are extremely responsive and I enjoy the resounding click and clack with each key feeling as if it were a mechanical keyboard even though they keyboard is not true mechanical.

Here is an Unboxing and Initial Thoughts of the UtechSmart Saturn Keyboard

As I got to use the keyboard more I learned that the 19 Non-Conflict keys really do help, especially when most of those keys are on the left side of the keyboard where you may have to hold one or more keys down for movement, like WF for forward and left while pressing other keys like crazy in MMO games.  I had no trouble at all and the keys were all amazingly sharp and tight.

You can see from my typing test and review that I got fast quick with the keyboard, and this write up is another week after this 2nd video was recorded.


So if you look at the keyboard the things to notice off the bat are the fact that it has a dial at top center which controls the brightness of the backlit keys, there are several different color options to choose from and you would hold FN (left of space bar and left ALT) plus the light button (right of the Windows Key) to change the colors, and “breathing rate” of the colors.

saturn keyboard (1) What you do is press the FN + Light key when you want to pause it at the color you want to keep the backlit keys at.  Or if it is already solid at a single color, pressing will cause it to start cycling through all the colors until you reach the color you want, or just leave it cycling colors.  The dial at the top center of the keyboard stays blue at all times.

saturn keyboard (3)

The FN key next to the left CTRL button also is used to with your F1 to F12 keys as alternate functions.  But you have some other special functions included in the manual that comes with the keyboard.

These include Locking the Windows key, changing the poll rate of keypresses, so that when you hold a key down, it will repeat it repeatedly or stagger how frequently the key repeats the press while holding it down.  The FN key is the most frequently used key on your keyboard if you mute/unmute change collors or use it to call open applications.

saturn keyboard (4)
While I myself found the lack of a Windows key on the left side to be a bit annoying, this may not bug everyone. I do happen to hit Windows+E or Windows+D many times a day, and having to use my right hand to hit the Windows key came unnaturally to me and took retraining.  I also wish the enter key were slightly larger horizontally but this is minor and only affected my touch typing early on.  I was able to build up much more speed after 2 weeks, and my initial typing tests in the video above showed 89-91 Words Per Minute, but by 2 weeks with this keyboard, here was my most recent typing test.

image Oh, did I mention this gaming keyboard also has 4 drainage port holes so if you accidentally spill on the keyboard the liquid will drain through the holes reducing the chances of damaging the keyboard?  I wasn’t willing to pour liquid over the keys to test it, so this is just an incase you need it function.

My honest feedback is that I think the UtechSmart Saturn MMO Gaming keyboard is an incredible keyboard for being near mechanical and that you get a keyboard this good that is also a backlit keyboard with multiple color choices for under $30 just makes it a MUST RECOMMEND.  The only thing I would say about the product is that it could use a few undefined MACRO buttons that you could program entire strings of actions to, that would be about the only improvement you could make on it.

PLANO, Texas, Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — KingsIsle Entertainment proudly lengthened the reach of Wizard101’s hallways today with new dungeons, high-level spells, and several fun changes that will challenge and excite players in ways only dreamed before.

“After finishing Morganthe’s epic story line in Khrysalis, it was finally time to delve into some hidden reaches of the Spiral where there had been only locked doors or whispered rumors,” said Josef Hall, vice president and creative director at KingsIsle Entertainment. “Our players love conquering dungeons in the hunt for rare treasures, and we’ve answered that call along with epic new stories of enlightenment, intrigue, and reconciliation.”

Level 25 adept wizards can now venture to the snowy Shangri-Baa Mountains. Level 40 master wizards will patrol Barkingham Palace. Legendary level 60 wizards will scale the House of Scales, and only the most exalted of wizards can attempt to approach the eerie gates of Castle Darkmoor, where a familiar foe of the past waits once again to challenge players.

While creeping and crashing through Darkmoor, players will also learn new, powerful “Shadow-Enhanced” spells designed to make your skin crawl–featuring bugs, spiders, and vermin of all types in hilarious and powerful attacks:

Evergreen content delivers ongoing value for your readers. Instead of delivering a bang of traffic at first and then rapidly fading away, it slowly builds readership over time. Most evergreen content starts slow but actually increases in page-view volume over time as you tweak it and adapt it. Instead of looking like a quick spike and a sharp downward slope, a page view graph for an evergreen post looks like a steadily rising curve.

Let’s take a look at how to generate ideas for evergreen content by looking at a few types of blog posts that have tried and true value as evergreen winners. Start by becoming familiar with these content formats. Then, think about how you can generate topics that fit these winning formulas.

FAQs About Your Industry or Blog Topic

One of the best ways to create a blog post that people visit again and again is to write a post that answers common questions about your industry or topic. FAQ posts start with a simple question: When readers type questions into Google’s search field about your topic or your industry, what questions do they type, and what answers do they want to receive?

Before doing any independent research, brainstorm a list of potential questions that someone might ask about your field. When you’re finished, search the Web to see what people have already written about the questions on your list. For each topic idea, ask yourself how you can offer a unique insight that no one else has written about yet, or decide how you can add more depth to what others may have already tried to say.

Comprehensive Guides and Resource Lists

Creating a comprehensive guide about something (“Everything You Need to Know About…”) or a resource list (“100 Articles to Read About…”) saves your readers time because you’ve done their research for them. It also positions you as someone who’s knowledgeable about your industry and as someone who’s generous about sharing your knowledge with others.

The list of topic ideas you generated for your FAQs can be a great starting place for creating guides and resource lists. For example, if you write a short blog post in answer to an FAQ, and you realize that you have a lot more to say about the topic, you can create an additional guide or resource list, or you can even transform your posts into a series. Just remember these hints:

  • Comprehensive guide. Make it a long post (at least 1,000 words), but make sure to break it up with headers, sub-headers, and bullets so that your readers can easily scan it.
  • Resource list. Go bigger rather than smaller so that you deliver as much value as possible. Instead of posting a list of five resources today, spend a few extra days and gather a list of 100 resources.

How-To Posts and Tutorials

Nothing says “evergreen” and “helpful” like a how-to post or tutorial. These posts aren’t general discussions about industry questions, and they’re not exhaustive guides covering big topics. Instead, they break down specific tasks into sequential, easy-to-follow steps.

For example, if you blog about weight loss, your how-to posts would cover focused topics like how to pick an outfit that flatters your figure, how to perform a certain type of exercise, or how to keep a food diary. They wouldn’t cover a wide-open, general topic like “How to Lose Weight.”

When you create a how-to post, break it down into easily visible steps, and give very specific instructions. If your reader knows how to start a task but is looking for help with a specific step, the reader should be able to scan your post, find the necessary step, and grab the needed information. When possible, add high-quality images, GIFs, or short videos to your tutorials.

Tending Your Evergreen Forest

If an accounting blogger published a how-to post but failed to update it when relevant tax laws changed, the post would no longer have value, and it would actually contain misinformation. That’s why it’s important to update your content as regulations change, as technology develops, and as you become better at what you do. When you create a portfolio of evergreen content and put some effort into keeping it current, your posts will build long-lasting value for your blog — and credibility for you.

The post 5 Amazon Kindle Fire Models to Choose From appeared first on Dragon Blogger Technology.

]]>
Amazon now has a total 5 five distinct Kindle Fire Models and here is a breakdown of the differences between them for those looking for a holiday gift idea.

Generally, when we think of Kindle, we think about an e-reader, not a tablet-based computer. Amazon has evolved the Kindle from an e-reader into a lightweight device capable of much more. The Kindle Fire is a line of tablet devices providing music, movies, email, WIFI, and business applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. You can use it as an e-reader, too! There are five Kindle Fire models you should look at:

  1. Kindle Fire 6 HD

The Kindle Fire 6 HD is the smallest of the Fire line. It has a six-inch HD screen, with a resolution of 1280 x 800, with 225 pixels per inch. The tablet has a quad-core processor, of up to 1.5 GHz processing power. The unit has a mono speaker and a built-in microphone. The tablet has single-band WIFI, but does not support 4G. You can get either 8GB or 16GB of storage media, and unlimited storage for photos in the Amazon cloud. The device provides up to eight hours of mixed use before recharging. With a starting price of $99.00 this is s great unit to get started with.

  1. Kindle Fire 6 Kids Edition

The Kindle Fire 6 Kids Edition is the same as the Kindle Fire 6, but it’s built specifically for kids. It has a tough kid-proof case designed to survive even the toughest kids, and it comes with a worry-free two-year replacement guarantee – if they break it, return it and Amazon will replace it no questions asked. This unit also comes with a year of Amazon Free Time Unlimited, so your children have access to books, music, educational apps, and movies at no extra cost. This is not a toy but a real tablet; your child will be able to grow with this one and use it for years. Starting at $149.00, this is a good investment in your child’s education. However, be sure to configure the unit with 16GB of storage media, to prevent running out of space.

  1. Kindle Fire 7 HD

The Kindle Fire 7 HD is the next step up from the Kindle Fire 6. It has a seven-inch HD display, with 216 ppi, and dual stereo speakers; otherwise, it is configured exactly the same. The unit features a larger screen, with better sound. At a starting price of $139.00 it’s a better buy for older kids than the Kids Edition, as the apps on the Kids Edition are geared for young children. It’s also a good buy for adults; it will allow you to edit Word documents. Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations.

  1. Kindle Fire 7 HDX

This Kindle Fire is the same size as the Kindle Fire 7 HD, but the screen has higher resolution – 1920 x 1200 versus 1280 x 800, with a higher pixel density 0f 323 ppi instead of 216 ppi. The unit has a faster quad-core processor of 2.2 GHz, and a separate graphics processor as well. This Fire has 2GB of RAM, to speed up your experience. The unit has dual stereo speakers, dual-antenna, dual band WIFI, and model supporting 4G networks is available. The battery lasts for eleven hours, and storage media ranges from 16GB up to 64GB. Starting at $179.00, this Kindle gives you plenty of bang for your buck.

  1. Kindle Fire 8.9 HDX

The Kindle Fire 8.9 HDX is the top-of-the-line Fire. It has an eight point nine inch display, with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and a pixel density of 339ppi. The init has dual stereo speakers, dual band, dual antenna WIFI, a 2.5GHz processor and a faster graphics processor. The unit features a “Mayday” button, as dies the 7 HDX; this feature gives you 24/7, 365 customer support. Starting at $379.00, this Kindle gives you a powerful performance for your money.

All of the Kindle Fire tablets excel at what they do, and give the customer a viable choice in the tablet market. You don’t have to spend big bucks for an iPad anymore – there are better choices available, and Kindle is one of them.

I tested the selfie stick from Noot. The idea is that you can attach your phone, and take a picture of yourself at a distance. It is supposed to allow you to take a better picture. It could even be used to take pictures where there is a large crowd and you don’t want to get the backs of people’s heads in your shot. WIN_20141112_100128
Sadly what should be a great idea is not always executed well. The pole is very stable, and the length is sufficient to do a great job. That sadly is about all I can say positive about the device.
First the handle has a button imprint on it. The actual button is under the rubber handle and the rubber moves off the button easily. The first time I used it, no problem but, each time after than I had to either move the rubber so that the symbol for the button location and the button lined up, or just fumble around and guess. If time were a factor, this could prove costly.
The next concern I have is the stability of the connections that hold the phone in place. I am not talking about the slide that pulls out and then grips the phone, it is actually well padded and seems to do its job just fine. It is the screws that tighten or in this case failed to tighten the phone into place. I put my phone in like the picture shows on the web site, held it up and the phone dropped down facing the ground. I adjusted it, and tightened it and the same results. I am not using a huge phone, I have a Samsung Galaxy S2. I was fearful that my phone would simply fall off the pole and hit the ground. WIN_20141112_100155
The next serious problem would be the length of the cable used to connect the button to the audio connection on the phone. It was too short. There is no way I could hook it up to my phone the way the picture showed. In fact I was left with a problem. If I adjust the placement of the phone to match the length of the cable, then the grips that hold the phone in place come in direct contact with the buttons on the side that turn my phone off and on. I actually had to detach the phone and power it back on. If I adjust the phone so that the buttons are not pressed, then I can just fit the plug for the button inside the hole on the phone, but the big problem with this is it is seriously stretching the cable which will either damage the headphone connection on the phone or damage the wires inside the cable. (As a side note, I was and Electronics technician in the Navy so I do have some knowledge of these things).WIN_20141112_100226
Now for the big part, the wording for the instructions that appear on the back of the packaging are almost unreadable. Oh, they are printed clearly enough, it is just that the words are a mess of nonsense and confusion. Even the name of the product which is advertised as a “Selfie Stick” on the web site is in fact labeled “Cable Take Pole” on the product packaging. Not only that but the wording of the sentences run around and around in circles and say very little of anything useful. At one point, one sentence was so long, and contained so many run on statements that were so confusing, that I almost packed the whole thing us to send it back without reading any more. No offense to the one who wrote the instructions, but it needs rewriting and it needs to be cleared up from the point of view of someone who actually reads and writes in the English language. I would be happy to do so for you if contracted to do so.
While I like the idea on this one, I cannot in any way recommend this product. While I only tested it on an Android device, it did not function without additional software. I felt that the physical safety of my phone was at risk from being dropped, and while I did manage to take some fine selfies with it, the risk does not outweigh the rewards. If the product can be improved with a longer cable, and better parts that actually tighten well enough to hold the phone in place securely, without slipping and loosening up without touching them, then and only then would I do another review and possibly make a favorable recommendation.

Hellooooooo gamers!!! Are you enjoying Goat Simulator as much as I am? Perhaps more-so? Have you even bought it yet? Well if not, then you most definitely should, and now is a great time to do so! Not only does it have goats, goats and more goats (did I mention goats?), but you can ride bicycles now, throw people around, jump over fences, mutate and even… FART! Yeah, that’s right, you get to fart (admittedly, this is quite humorous). Go hang-goating, jump on trampolines, do funny tricks in the air while floating in a room full of fans, oh and you get to headbutt things and blow them up as well. You even goat to make masses of goat minions rain from the sky in tribute to your goat-y (Is that really even a word? Well, I declare that it is!) awesomeness!

Goat MMO Simulator 01Photo copyright 2014 Coffee Stain Studios AB.

With every patch comes new excitement, new thrills, new frills and even hats. Hats? What is this, Team Fortress 2? You wish! Oh, boy would Team Goatress ever be epic! Anyway, back to the epicness that is Goat Simulator… The last patch (1.1) added lots of cool things, like hats, a penguin, the ability to ride a bicycle, and even a new area to explore (and utterly destroy). In Patch 1.2, however, they give us… THIS!

Oh, yeah baby, GOAT MMO SIMULATOR! It’s Elder Scrolls meets Goat Simulator (The Elder Goats, anyone? Eh? EHHH??? Well, anyway…), in all-out awesome epicness to the extreme (can you tell I love this game?)!!! GVG (Goat Vs. Goat), GVE (Goat Vs. Environment) and, well, um… everything else I already mentioned! While I’m certain that there’s more in store for us, for the time being I am uber-stoked about this upcoming patch, and considering the game runs on pretty much any gaming PC from the last 1-8 years, I have to say that there’s really no logical reason to not goat -er, get this game (unless you of course don’t have the $10 to buy it, which I totally understand)! The new goat launches on Steam, November 20th, 2014, so I bid you…

Goat MMO Simulator is coming

Until next time, I’m Ronald DMNKLR Smith, aka Goatjira, goat-ing off and letting you know that I want to goat what you want to goat about!

The post Unboxing and How to Build a PC using a Corsair Graphite 780T appeared first on Dragon Blogger Technology.

The Corsair Graphite Series 780T is a pretty large case and seems to be able to fit the bill for any build.  You can add plenty of fans, liquid cooling units, hard drives, just about any size motherboard and video card with it.  Take a look at how it rates.

Corsair Graphite Series 780T Case Specs

  • Motherboard Support: Mini-ITX, Micro ATX, ATX, E-ATX, XL-ATX
  • Full Tower Case
  • Maximum GPU Length: 355MM (13.98in)

  • Maximum PSU Length: 260mm (10.24in)
  • Rounded Corners
  • Latched side panels
  • 9 Expansion slots
  • Drive Bays:
    • 6 x Combo 3.5in and/or 2.5in
    • 3 x 2.5in

    • 2 x USB 2.0

    • 1 x Microphone Port

    • Top: 3 x 120mm or 2 x 140mm
    • Rear: 140mm or 120mm
    • Bottom: 2 x 120mm
  • Includes 2 x Front 140mm and 1 Rear 140mm fans
  • 5 year Warranty
  • Weight: 11.294kg (24.90lbs)
  • Dimensions: 601.98mm x 287.02mm x 637.54mm

Here is my unboxing of the Corsair Graphite 780T

1

As mentioned in the specs above, this case can take any motherboard.  I originally installed just to test the Asus P8Z77-V Pro but as you will see in the videos and pictures below I upgraded it to the Asus Z87 Sabertooth.

  • 10 x Motherboard or HDD Screws
  • 4 x Long fan screws
  • 16 x short fan screws
  • 28 SSD/Optical Disc drive screws
  • 4 x SSD pan head screens
  • 6 x HDD tray screws
  • 1 x Motherboard stand-Off screw
  • 4 x Cable ties / Zip ties.

Here is the assortment of screws, all black to match the inside of the case, looks nice inside.

2

This case comes with a 5 year warranty, 5 years, that’s a very long warranty, although the warranty only covers manufacture defects.

3

The Graphite Series 780T comes with a user’s manual that goes over the included accessories.

4

5

The accessories includes the case itself though, so they include in the users manual a disassembled view of everything the case consists off, which is pretty cool

6

That’s pretty much all that it comes with, although in itself is a lot.

Now, what a case without a motherboard, processor, cpu heatsink, etc,…  Do you know how to install a CPU, memory and a CPU heatsink?  That’s ok if you don’t because I will show you here, but let me show you the unboxing of the board before we get into installing on it.

And here is the unboxing of the Intel Core i7 4790K processor which I will also be installing on the next video.


Now this video will go through installing the CPU, CPU heatsink, etc…

So now that you have done some learning, lets jump into installing all of this in the Corsair Graphite Series 780T.

7

Here is the reverse standoff I spoke about during the install, such a simple idea but it makes a world of difference when installing a board.

8

Look ma, no screws

9

Here are the extra fans I used during the video, the SP140 LED and the SP120 LED, both in blue.

10

11

And here is the modular drive cage I removed, just to show you close up how it looks.

12

And here is one of the modular drive trays.  Here you can install a 3.5” or a 2.5” drive.

13

This is how modular drive trays look like with 3.5” and 2.5” drives.  I didn’t install my SSD’s on these, I chose to use the back of the case as Corsair has included SSD.

14

These are the drives installed on the back, you can also see how it works in the build video.

15

Now that the board is installed into the case, let’s get to some cabling

Nice cabling makes airflow within the system much better and plus I love looking inside my system from time to time to look at my work.

While it did come out kind of nice, I think it would have come out a little better if I had longer cables as I mentioned.  Again, the cable extenders are not needed, but a nice touch.

Here are the extensions

24Pin Power supply extension

16

8Pin CPU extension cable

Here is my new baby, complete with a new Intel Core i7 4790K, Asus Z87 Sabertooth and a Corsair Graphite Series 780T.

18

And here she is in low light with the side panels on and powered on with all her pretty lighted fans and fully built.

19

Other than the rear fan, every place you can place a fan on this system has a filter to protect from dust

The bottom of the case.

20

I didn’t realize till I took this photo, but the bottom of the case, not only has a filter but it has 2.  One of the filters for the power supply and the other for a liquid cooling unit if you wanted to put one or a fan.

The top of the case.

21

The front of the case.

22

Detail down to every single touch, the top of the case has the power and reset buttons, the Microphone and audio ports and the USB ports.  It seems like my concerns regarding the 450D only having 2 USB 3.0 ports and no other USB port was addressed with this case as they have 2 x USB 3.0 and 2 x USB 2.0, perfect.

The top also has a button to control the fan speeds if connected correctly, you can watch my cabling videos above to learn how.  The button if pressed will move to the first speed, illuminated the first of 3 sections, if pressed again the fans will move to the middle speed and with that the first and second light will be illumined and if pressed again the fans will speed up to max speed and all 3 lights will be illuminated.  The SP240 and SP120 Corsair provided for the review are very quiet too, so I have them at full speed.  They do make a little noise but with 5 fans (not including the CPU fan, 2 x GPU fans and PSU fan) it is to be a bit expected.

23

Even the Microphone, headphone and USB port logos are lighted.  When the computer is sleeping, the START/STOP button blinks too.

The top of the case, just above the optical drives (yes I use optical drives, maybe once or twice a year) even has a soft light for when you want to insert a disc or even press the button.  You have to imagine it can be a bit difficult the case and the drives being black.

24

You guys already know that I don’t like liquid cooling but it does work at keeping the CPU cool.  This case is already certified to work with the following Corsair liquid cooling units, if you want to take a look at that or buy them.

You could also use with this, the AMD Radeon R9 295 X2 with the liquid cooling unit as it will fit inside of this case or any NVIDIA card, I am partial to the GTX970 even the GTX980.  To expand on that, you can use any card today in this system it would fit perfectly.

This case comes in white as you can see in the review, Black and Yellow.

2526

  • Pros: Nice material felt sturdy, very spacious, great SSD placement, almost tool less.  Great fan placement and ability to expand on fan assortment. Has 4 total top USB ports (2 x USB2.0 and 2 x USB 3.0).  Awesome latched side panels.
  • Cons: The only con I could think of would be that the case is huge, but it is to be expected since it is a full tower, so it’s not really a con but the “Cons:” section would look bare if I didn’t list anything.

Out of 3 cases I have reviewed so far, I have to give this case 5 stars; there is nothing wrong I can find, it is perfect.  Great job Corsair.

Okay so honestly this is just a 3 foot USB Lightning cable so there isn’t really much to review here and I don’t want to waste readers time.  So let me just say this, the Noot Lightning USB Cable works and works well.  It was used exclusively for 4 days as the only means of charging my iPhone 5S from Wall A/C outlet as well as from external batteries and it did so without issue.

The head plug is as small as the Apple official lightning cable so it fit in every case I tested with it, I couldn’t say the same for the Amazon Basics Lightning Cable, so this Noot cable has a 2 advantages over the Amazon Basics lightning cable, one is that it has a smaller plug head for your Lightning interface and two is that it is less expensive.

At $9.99 on Amazon, the Noot 3 foot Lightning USB Cable is cheaper than every other Lightning cable I have previously purchased which makes it a thumbs up and a great buy if you need spare lightning charging cables.

Here is my video unboxing and video review of the Noot USB Lightning Cable

Grand Theft Auto V is scheduled to be released on the PS4 and the Xbox ONE early next week, on 18th November to be precise. This is the perfect time when people begin getting there hands on early copies and leak some screenshots or useful information. For example,t he next gen version of GTA V will not allow you to store special vehicles like the Ambulance in your garage in GTA ONLINE. Read on below for more small leaks and a handful of screenshots. Take these with a grain of salt, though they are promising.

Character Customization

Right off the bat, when you fire up GTA ONLINE, the character customization options have been increased and you can basically onw tweak a lot of minor details to make your character unique.

First Person Cars

The biggest addition of the next gen version of GTA V has to be the amazing First Person mode. Rockstar definitely put a lot of effort into this, which can be clearly seen in the image below. This is the interior of a Police cruiser. The high resolution of the next gen makes even the tiny details like the cracked glass pop out.

GTA ONLINE

Up next are a few screenshots from GTA ONLINE, here in the first one you can see the mountains in the distance with ease. The second one gives you a look at the buildings (not too far though) and you get to see the foliage of the tree leaves.

Next up is another screenshot from GTA ONLINE, this time its during the night. It gives you a view of the night sky and the starts.

Cars

Finally, here is a picture of the new car customization options. The car is the image has been fully modified and the neon underglow has been added.
