Prepare for DownCount! News Blast


As usual, the weekends are light tech news days, but we do have a juicy bit of gossip about Intel.  Apparently they are planning on re-releasing their X79 chipset, but crippled for the budget market.

We do have an exciting budget case review from OCmodshop, and an SSD review, a 10-bay NAS review and a gaming headset… and all are good reads.

In keeping with the “meh” news, we have a guide to Oktoberfest, a really old movie bluray review.  I don’t make the news, I just post it…
