Cases, Power Supplies, and Cooling / Re: Reeven Naia... Wherefore art thou?
« on: December 05, 2017, 09:23:53 AM »
Thanks for the quick response... I assumed as much.

However, I'm glad to hear it's just a supply issue, so we may see some flood back onto the market as soon as a factory shipment comes to the US.

Yeah, there are a TON of reviews out there. It's a shame for them to lose out on all that publicity by not having product available. DOH!

Cases, Power Supplies, and Cooling / Reeven Naia... Wherefore art thou?
« on: December 05, 2017, 09:09:01 AM »
After Ari's review of water coolers named Reeven Naia the overall best AIO water cooler, I've been on the lookout for one. Amazon (via the referral link) reports that there is no schedule for them to have it back in stock. What's more, this is not an Amazon-specific problem. A broader search reveals the same... none anywhere!

Any thoughts on why? Is there a "hot" new cryptocurrency that's being mined with water-coolers? (j/k) Perhaps they've rethought their pricing strategy and decided that the Naia was too aggressively priced for them to make a profit?

Any information would be helpful.

Weird, nerdy and unrelated fact of the day regarding the post subject line...
A common misconception is that wherefore means where; it is occasionally so used in retellings of Romeo and Juliet — often for comedic effect. In Romeo and Juliet, the meaning of “Wherefore art thou Romeo?” (Act 2, scene 2, line 33) is not “Where are you, Romeo?” but “Why are you Romeo?” (i.e. “Why did you have to be a Montague?”)

Ari is a mensch... and has a damn good head of hair.
(and, yes, thank you to everyone else involved)

1. Reeven case cooling package
2. Silverstone case
3. Gaming mouse

1. Love the regular updates to the builds. I so many other sites with recommended day builds post once a year and leave you wondering what you should buy today.

2. Buying me a graphics card for an ITX build, and dad nabbit.

Once again, awesome feature Ari.

I've peppered you with a few questions over the last couple of months. I'm finally collecting components and was sad to see the bad news on the power supply (which I think I just ordered prior to seeing the article... DOH).

Anyway, are there other options out there that you might recommend for the $1.1K build that will fit the RVZ02B variant of the build? Noise is a huge factor for me and I'm worried.

On the good side, I was happy to see the amount of flexibility afforded to the graphics card. Any additional thoughts on over and above the GTX 960/970 cards recommended for standard $1.1K build?


The Gaming/HTPC Mini-ITX Build / Silicondust?

Hey Ari-

I noticed that the recommendation for Silicondust stuff dropped off the list. I assume this is intentional... what's intended to replace the functionality that the exterior box used to provide?

I'm moving forward with this build (finally) but want to make sure I'm collecting the right stuff.


The Gaming/HTPC Mini-ITX Build / Re: September Skylake Update?

Thanks a lot Ari.

I know this may be impossible to answer but what's your guess on the optimal timeline for ITX/Skylake? 3 months,  six months? 8?

I'd like to use the new architecture and I have some time, but if it's six months plus,  I may just make the move now with the existing tech.

Thanks again.

The Gaming/HTPC Mini-ITX Build / September Skylake Update?
« on: August 28, 2015, 09:04:40 AM »

Does anyone know if there are plans to update this build for September to incorporate new Skylake technology or is that coming a little later?

I'm in need of an HTPC, but I can live without one for a while IF there's going to be some significant new tech releases and/or some price reductions over the next couple of months as the first wave of Skylake tech is released. Frankly, I'd probably avoid the K series if I had my choice. I'm not a serious overclocker.

So, I guess my question is: is there something I should be waiting for? Am I paying a huge penalty for jumping into the new architecture at this point?
