Overlord

cmos thinks:

"On top of all that you’ve got a terabyte of storage in RAID 0, so you’ve got spaciousness and data security nicely taken care of."

Data security? Doesn't RAID 0 have a higher chance of failure because if one one drive fails all is lost?

About the Atomic article NRG Tornado

A solid performer with a great selection of components and hefty overclock.

What do you think?

I wonder why they installed the HSF with the fan right under the 200mm big boy unless they have it pulling the air through the heatsink instead of pushing air through it.

Also overpriced for what it is.

WHAT THE HELL, way to over priced $3,300 for that price you can get a VERY good quad core with like 8Gb of ram, AND better video cards and possibly even a PPU (physics processing unit).

(lol i got bored on the weekend and made up my own custom computer brand name and logo LOL)

1. quad is not always better (games a higher clocked dual core is still better)
2.8gb of ram is a waste of money as unless your running a server you wouldn't need it
3. nvidia cards do have the capability of doing physx now as there is no such thing as a ppu that retails anymore
4.physx is a waste of money and time and anyone into technology would know that although the new nvidia cards are very good at GPGPU applications such as the new photoshop
