    part of why i like TTL is that he will tell you what is wrong with something, which personally i find important, as far as im concerned, somebody needs to be fired, then shot, every time someone gets their hopes up about a computer part only to have that feeling destroyed by a defective part, or it not working the way it was advertised

    although i don't watch all his videos, they are better than newegg, newegg's videos feel like sales videos, and that's because they are

    Pff, when I'm critical of something, people think I hate everything. I'm just critical of everything.

    Well, not exactly. I was more fishing for a bit more elaborate answer as to the particular bit. Sorry.~

    Yeah, I like that TTL will tell you what is wrong with a product, even if it means his relationship with that company is going to become a little frosty (I think I remember him absolutely slamming a case - and rightly so - and it taking a while before they sent him a new product to review.) Too many reviewers seem so frightened about falling out with a manufacturer that they either gloss over or downright neglect to mention the things that are wrong with a product.

    Presumably he always mentions whether an H100 will fit in the case because he gets asked that a hundred times a day.

    Butler Log, you're almost guaranteed to be talking about his review of the NZXT H2, which made NZXT throw an absolute hissyfit. Only when the Switch 810 came did they send him a sample again.

    thoughts of case designers crying and slamming their pens down on the table just came to mind

    The NZXT H2 isn't that bad of a case. A lot of TTL's bashing was justified, albeit exxagurated. Next to the R3 it's generally considered worse, but at the same time the R3 is a really good case.

    I find he stepped on a few toes too many when he made his H2 review and H2 vs R3 video. He took the criticism personal - something a reviewer should never do - and acted a bit... butthurt.

    The best part is when he goes: "So that's pretty much it, then" at the end of the video. Still 15 minutes left to go! xD

    I'll be honest and say, TTL called me a noob on his wall on his own Facebook some months ago. I was asking him about how to make other things show up in the MSI Afterburner overlay in a game, and he was like, well, you're being a noob, go back and look again. Guess what? I figured it out. :P



    Anyways, yes it was about the H2, but honestly, when he made the first review, people were like, "OMFG YOU'RE WRONG I <3 MY PLASTIC PIECE OF TRASH!!!"

    Then he was like, well, you guys tried defending it, now I will point out the flaws in comparison.

    The H2 IS garbage and frankly, I am happy he was man enough to take on NZXT head-on. And then they thought he'd bash anything of theirs, nope, he fucking loved the Havik 140 and the 810.

    I was watching his 690 SLI vid (I think it was that one), and he goes: "well if you can't figure out how to make afterburner put info on your screen, you need to go back to noob school."

    lol I asked him a while back, I am sure he's had others ask, because he's been talking about it since before I asked. :P

    Random question, has anyone tried the Logitech Z906's? I'm in the market for new speakers and I thought I should treat myself with a good setup.

    So the Z906's are $340 in the US.

    For $340, I can get a truly much better set of speakers, btw, you don't need 5.1/7.1. 2.1 is best for music, if that's going to be a primary use, and they can be good enough for virtual 5.1/7.1 anyways.

    Here's what I'd get with such a budget, granted costs might be different in Australia.

    Two of these: http://www.amazon.com/KRK-RP5G2-Powe...1&keywords=KRK

    Then save up for a sub.

    Boom, you just blew away ANYTHING Logitech or any other computer speakers company can or ever will make.

    The reason I was looking at them is because I could potentially use them as a home theatre setup as well(allbeit a cheap one) as well as general use for music/games/movies. But those you linked are not bad, although I'm expecting the price to be much higher here >.> lol

    edit: well what do ya know, $219 per speaker is the cheapest so far.

    Granted they are studio monitors, and thus push a very flat range of sound, studio monitors, if you ask me, truly overpower stereo/consumer grade speakers. And computer speakers don't even compare at all. I have a pair of Samson Media ONE 3A monitors, little bitty guys, but holy shit do they get loud and sound amazing. For only two little 3" woofers and 1" tweeters, you'd think I was hiding some massive speakers in the room, too. :P

    They are poop. If you have to have "computer speakers" rather than speakers, go with the Corsair SP-2500. Otherwise get a good 2.0/2.1 speaker setup.
