They got paid enough Tom's has had a hard-on for SilverStone the last 2-3 years. Same with Blizzard and a few other companies. Used to be a more reputable tech site than it is today now it's got too many paid endorsements sponsors and less earnest at times to end users as a result.Elegant? How much did you get paid to say that.
It's rectangle. Rectangles are elegant? It's plain, at best.
The only thing not in an entire pc format that has an old style VCR clock is Scythe Kaze Chrono, a fan controler with a big clock up front.Something that I would like to see in HTPC cases or Intel NUC's or Gigabyte Brix's is a simple led clock on the front like the old vcr's used to have even a drive bay add on that has a clock on it.
Er, no..... but I would rather have them in Metric system and I live in the US.....Dimensions for USA articles should be in inches. Is this asking too much?
Lets be honest here, metric is better than imperial in almost if not all aspects. The only instance where imperial may have some degree of use is when an object (which measures a whole number of imperial units mind you) needs to be divided by 3. Metric is not able to do that so easily.Er, no..... but I would rather have them in Metric system and I live in the US.....Dimensions for USA articles should be in inches. Is this asking too much?
this is mainly due to the fact that inches is not precise enough as a "unit of measurement" when it comes to some computers parts.
Like when trying to figure out how much room you have for a cooler that you may really want in your case or maybe you need that precision if your putting a computer case in a tight space (why? I dont know but you know there are people out there that do just that.)
Yeah you could measure in inches..... although lets say you have a small case.... and the cooler you have looks like it a tight fit in that case.... Like it's under an inch of clearance between your cooler and the side panel of the case. Your going to want to know the millimeters.
Unless you really like saying "the case is 6.73228 inches wide (171mm) and my cooler is 6.25984 inches (159mm tall)", and the Mother board and standoff will add another .xx inches...
I really think the the metric system is far better than the "imperial system" (what the inches, yards, ect is under) for the tech area.
*using my xigmatek gaia cooler as if it was going to put it in this case as an example http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233082&cm_re=xigmatek_gaia-_-35-233-082-_-Product
You obviously don't have toddler's running around your house.I don't get it.
HTPC with a locked ODD and USB ports?
and you have to open the whole door to get to the USB ports too?
