These gals weight is fine, though I do think that all three of these girls suffer from "butter face syndrome". Seriously, marginal models at best. Or should i say margarine?

Some of the comments here are downright rude. All of these women are beautiful. None of them are professional models, so holding them up to professional model standards is unfair. Personally, I find the blond in red to be the most attractive. I am not interested in any of the products in the article though.

Like gsacks here, I am pretty appalled by the misogynist comments on a site where, honestly, I expect better.

Secondly, while the traditional model + product formula makes for some fun holiday pictures, I was wondering if Tom's has ever considered using actual gamers, tech reviewers, and geeks for their photoshoots. I think using people with actual experience in the field and with the products themselves would show a much more even handed and interesting approach to the photos, while most likely, being able to be done at low cost.

If these women are already geeks, I heartily apologize and will shut up immediately, but it seems to me that the use of actual geeks, while being hand-picked for the most attractive ones, obviously, and maybe using more than one gender of model, would make for a more professional approach that follows with the standards set in all of Tom's other amazing articles. Just some food for thought.

I like the models, these women are gorgeous, and I definitely have way more experience with women than the geeks here. Please, NO pictures with actual gamers and products - that would be pervert and disgusting :).

While I appreciate the feedback on the idea, why would that be perverted and disgusting? Would you really be so offended by the Frag Dolls posing with this hardware? If so, why?

I think this is a gathering of very interesting products. I don't know if I will buy any of them this year but in past years I have actually bought products that were included in Tom's Holiday Gift Guides.

How about some pix of the girls without all those products blocking the view? I think I've looked at every picture so far, but it's not the keyboards and mice I remember.

Hire a real photographer FFS. I read these reviews every year, the models are anywhere from decent to fantastic, but the pictures you take of them are always horrible. It's possible to take a good (or bad) picture of just about anyone, you guys have a real knack for taking bad pictures.

What about SR-320s? LOL

And, the models need to loose weight in the area of the gums.

[citation][nom]cadder[/nom]Hey, I like the one in green!Back to the article- why does the Assassin have 2 CPU coolers? Did they ship you a different model for photography?[/citation]
I think its the Noctua NH-D14 which has two sets of fins. Though I am wondering if they remove the fans that come with the heatsink. They're not loud fans to begin with and if space is an issue they should have picked the Prolimatech Megahalems instead or something.

What the hell is going on with your comment rating system. Im seeing a few comments (like the bunga28) I would love to assist in giving "-20" points.

I can't see the benefit of the SSD on the second page. A whole Read/Write speed of ~180 MB/s for $280? An OCZ Revodrive at 120GB has sustained 500 MB/s Read/Write speeds for the same price, and it connects to an x4, x8, or x16 slot you KNOW you have extra. Garbage, Tom's!

Backlit keys on a keyboard designed to run on solar power? Um...
