Pros: This is an extremely awesome processor. I paired it with a ga-z77x-d3h mobo, 16 gigs of gskill ripjaw ram, a corsair h8o watercooler and an NVidia 650ti gtx. This system ran everything I threw at it in low cpu cycles but a little high on the temp sometimes pushing in excess of 70c when serial compressing dvds using handbrake.

After reading a review of the Drobo FS, I became obsessed with network attached storage (NAS). I realised that a NAS device would neatly solve a couple of long-standing problems I hadn’t got around to fixing: data backup and data organisation. This post will explain how I picked the hardware and software for my NAS. To buy or to build? The Drobo FS itself, while a compelling product, is expensive. There are also some worrying stories of problems with poor read/write speeds, noise, and the slightly ropey client software.

OS X Lion: How to Do a Clean Install OS X Lion: How to Do a Clean Install Update:This guide was written for OS X Lion in 2011, for a current guide to doing a clean install of OS X Mavericks, please view this updated post. OS X Lion is now available from the Mac App Store and we know that many of you are preparing or have already started downloading and installing the new cat. Because installation takes place entirely from within the Mac App Store, the usual "clean install" option isn't present. If you've followed our guide for preparing your Mac for Lion, you're probably in good shape to proceed with an upgrade. If, however, you long for the ability to do a clean install without having to first install Snow Leopard and THEN install Lion, Mashable has you covered. If you want to create a bootable USB stick or burn a DVD of OS X Lion, read along.
Any OSx86 installation guide can seem daunting at first glance, especially when trying to remember cryptic terminal commands and sorting through volumes of misinformation on the web. This guide requires no coding, terminal work, or Mac experience of any kind. You will not need access to a Mac. In fact, it's easier and faster for me to install Snow Leopard with fully working components on my system than it is to install Windows 7. And more fun. iBoot + MultiBeast: Install Mac OS X on any Intel-based PC
