When I put Kobalt together, I did so with the express intention of overclocking. I knew nothing about it. I had no experience in it. I just knew I wanted to do it.
I bought a 6600K and a all-in-one Corsair H80i GT Hydro Series CPU cooler, and then studied all I could about it. And I guess this shows obvious lack of forethought on my end because Kobalt was supposed to end up in a Cougar QBX, a teeny tiny pouch of a case. Eventually, he got bumped up to a Corsair Carbide Spec M2, so there's a little more breathing room, which helps with cooling.
The PlayStation VR finally has a launch date and price for Asia! The announcement was done at an event held in Singapore. You can find the details of that here.
It will launch on October 13, 2016 at select Sony stores in Hong Kong, The Philippines, Singapore, Korea, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Taiwan. That means the Asian release coincides with the US and UK release. Huzzah!
In 2006, I built my very first PC. It, at the time, was a fairly impressive machine. I used a Core 2 Quad back when Core 2 Quads were new. It served me faithfully for 10 years or so. During that time, every now and then, I would play around with the idea of upgrading my rig, researching on parts and prices. After getting married in 2015, I had saved up enough funds to finally get a new rig.
I immediately set off researching once again. And this is what I eventually ended up with. Everyone, meet Kobalt.
Originally, I set out to build a Mini-ITX rig. I did my research, but I guess it wasn't thorough enough. Or at least, I believed I had the skillz to put one together. I am, by no means, a beginner, but building and picking out parts for a small build just fell right outside my skill set.
This was my original build:
A few weeks ago, I got an idea for a post here at GeekOut.ph thanks to an email I received from Carmudi. I thought to myself "Man, it'd be cool if Carmudi had every conceivable car on their listing." With that rattling in my head, I listed down what cars from fiction would just be awesome to drive down the Skyway while blasting some Katy Perry or some Taylor Swift. Let's go take a look at that list right now!
Let's get the obvious one out of the way from the get-go. The Batmobile is one of the most recognizable fictional car despite it having many, many looks. The specs and features of the Batmobile really depends on the medium and the story it was featured in, but they all have one thing in common - badassery.
I'm actually quite partial to the BTAS batmobile, though. Look at that thing.
Do you guys remember the Christmas guide last 2013? We mentioned the Iron Man Gauntlet on the list. Though Iron Man 3 was a bit of letdown, the Mark 42 armor was pretty cool. We found one store where it was available but it quickly disappeared.
