We are going to give you all a grand tour of the latest sockets and their most compatible processors. It makes building a new gaming or work rig so much easier if you don’t have to return a motherboard or processor for a refund and order a new one.

Western Digital’s MyPassport 1TB hard drive could be the answer you’re looking for. Not only does it offer a ton of storage, but comes in a small form factor and is equipped with USB 3.0 technology.
While we get a lot of traffic from articles about heatsinks, cases, motherboards and other PC hardware, there are just some articles that just shoot past all of the others and really stand out. Listed here are the most popular OCModShop articles from the past decade.
Yup, this isn’t a press release or a tease… this is the only review on the new NZXT FX Enthusiast Fan series that I know of on the Internets at the time of this writing. If you’re familiar with the NZXT brand, then you’re probably a loyal customer and not only have a few of [...]
We review a lot of fans and other computer cooling equipment here at OCModShop. In some ways, testing fans are quite straightforward, and in other ways they are very subjective. The noise and airflow ratio produced by any given fan changes as the blades and motor gather dust. Debris on the blades can actually chip [...]
*NOTE: I know this game was made by Blue Castle Games, in Canada, but it’s still basically the same game as DR1. Same people worked on it too, and Capcom made the first game.* I believe this game demonstrates the theory that Eastern game developers have already lost to the West. What is this new [...]
SuperSpeed USB emerged onto the scene as an answer to the limited bandwidth of today’s current popular connectivity interface. The additional throughput is a boon for external hard drives, but most other devices aren’t fast enough to take advantage of it. With USB 3.0 external drives, you can now realistically perform intensive data transfer tasks [...]
SuperSpeed USB (otherwise known as USB 3.0) is a new standard for PC peripheral connectivity. Although Intel has been hesitant to make this interface truly standard, more and more vendors are including the technology on their motherboards, and you can even purchase add-on cards to upgrade your current system. The increase in data transfer naturally [...]
Heavy Rain is a game about being a nearly completely interactive drama. You may think “why not just film a live action movie rather than make them virtual”, but there are so many different endings to see that make this game far more than just a simple play-by-numbers interactive movie (which is what people are [...]
Generally I’m a big fan of international products. My favorite band is from Finland, my favorite television personality is from Scotland, and my favorite actor is from England. It seems that things made in the USA these days don’t really last as long as they used to. Of course, if Toyota keeps things up the way they have [...]
Enermax is constantly impressing me with their case fans. When I reviewed the Enermax Twister a few months ago, I was so impressed by their quiet cooling power that I left them in my case and put my NZXT fans in a server case. And now I get the pleasure of checking out the Apollish [...]
As far as video games are concerned, Batman hasn’t been very lucky. With the exception of a great NES game based on the first Tim Burton movie, all efforts to make a game with Batman have been below average or just mediocre. It’s not for lack of trying, some games had you beating up hordes [...]
OCmodshop was first in line to get a glimpse of Red Dead Redemption; the sequel to 2005’s critically mixed Red Dead Revolver. Keep in mind, Rockstar was very tight about security breaches. No pictures could be taken, videos recorded etc. So we have only what we saw. The game takes place around 1910 in the [...]
BGRMods was at PAX 09, and was showing off their Intensafire mod. This product is essentially a pre-printed circuit board that is installed into any wireless Xbox 360 controller to give it enhanced fire abilities. Unlike other modding products, the Intensafire was designed to be installed quickly without any soldering. Coy Christmas (yes that’s his real name) [...]
When Marvel VS Capcom 2 hit arcades in 2000 it marked not just the pinnacle of the crossover fighting genre, but it also was considered the last great 2D fighter for some time. While Street Fighter 4 has changed everything, MVC2’s release on X-box Live and soon Playstation 3 could be just as enjoyable if [...]
Third-party controllers are like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get. Some are awesome, some are passable, and some are a total waste of money. Datel’s PS3 Wildfire ranks between passable and awesome, depending on whether you find its features useful and/or if you like having a ton of extra AA [...]
Remember when UV first became popular? I must have spent my entire McDonald’s salary tricking out my case with every UV light I could get my hands on. My PC glowed like a street racer. It was in its own movie. I eventually moved out of the UV phase and into the LED era, where I remain even today. It [...]
