Just kidding! I believe most people don't comment because they feel overwhelmed or self-concious about the comments for the articles because most of the readers of tom's hardware are quite educated and post insightful comments. I think this is a good idea to give a welcoming message to "lurkers" who don't comment on articles.

apache_livesI like chicken.

The chicken didn't come first, after all. The "First!" did. That just about equates to dividing by zero, I think?

That's a rather strange looking case. I do like how the fans are attached to the front door though and how the 3.5" bays appear to be hot swappable... now if only I didnt still have to open the case to attach the wires to the drive it would rock... sort of like in a server or a 5into3 enclosure you just attach the wires to the back plane and close up the case then when you wanna add or remove a drive, do it, and it's already connected..

[edit]also how come they dont show the cooling system off? that would be nice to see too. I mean you can see the tubing but it all leads to the 5.25" bays and there's no shot of the radiator to see how big it is. Oh and the water cooling tube going RIGHT over the power supply is a TAD scary if you ask me. one little pin hole in that tube and your system is toast unless youre using mineral oil or something to cool with of course.[/edit]

I'm actually surprised someone thought of such an idea. This is a very simple and has a very positive affect on getting people who normally just read articles to take an active roll and participate in conversations. TBH most people including myself probably would not have commented if not for something like this.
Good job Toms Hardware you have inspired the lazy.

Interesting idea and system.

1 question before I comment further though, are the comments for here or all review/articles etc?

Mr T and Chuck Norris walk into the same room and it explodes in a gargantuan fireball because their awesomeness it too great. Yes they can also divide by zero.

"Well Vito your in luck, Toms Hardware will show you how to unleash all this power without getting hurt , or even killed, all on their great forums, so what do you say?" Joe quickly replies "Joe this is why you stick with the plans and don't drive, Lets do it."

My name is Antonio Stoilkov and I am developer. I am amassed from the great rig Tom's Hardware and CyberPower are giving away. I just want to comment that not every computer with good hardware specs and flashing lights on it should be called Gaming Rig. I am developer & designer and I think that this computer can do very good job for a freelancer because it has the hardware capabilities of doing certain jobs with the speed and the ease needed.

Something to think about: am I the only one who's missing the SSD drive? Why isn't it common in high-end machines even today? The performance gain is so obvious.. If I win the first thing would be to add an SSD as system drive. Otherwise I'd be standing there with a real powerplant that loads slower than a crappy old sys (with SSD).

Any reason why the above picture case has TWO EVGA cards in SLi and a 1000w power supply unit? This is a misrepresentation I think

Good enough? Also, Why is a water cooler necessary when that CPU is at stock?

Hi there, citizen. My name is C. Montgomery McGhee and I just became mayor of your house. May I come in?
Sorry, friend. I’m afraid I can’t “get off your porch” before you “call the cops”. As you can clearly see by taking a look at my phone, I have a duty to this house to fulfill. Now, if you’ll excuse me…

Yikes. Already I can see we’re going to have to work at streamlining the infrastructure around here. Your furniture is sprawling out of control. Looks like you’ve got some traffic problem getting in and out of the bathroom over here. Let’s take a look in the fridge. Oh my. I don’t know how anyone could expect small businesses to put roots down in this house without a decent place to get something to eat. Looks like I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me.

First things first, though. We need to start getting more people interested in bringing their resources into your home. By the looks of your computer desk, I imagine tourism around here is negligible at best, huh? No worries. As my first act as mayor, I’m going to authorize CyberpowerPC to help turn this room around. With all the gaming, surfing, and other media you’ll be able to watch on this sizeable gaming system, I’m willing to bet visitors will start coming by in droves. All we need is a few digital components to connect via the 2 DVI outputs and some digital cable and this 240mm radiator cooling system will help us turn things around here in no time. And now that I’m thinking about it, we may want to grab a slightly smaller card readerto spruce up the front. I’m sure the budget can handle it. If not, I’ll just raise taxes.

Now then, let’s get started on our first budgetary committee meeting so that I can see what I’m dealing with. Where do you keep your account records? Please, sir. Enough with the threats. I know you may not have voted for me, but let’s not make this any more difficult. I’d really hate to become mayor of your face.
