    Master Overclocking Arena Semi Final Results
    A bunch of people enter, only 15 can move on.  The rules in the MOA 2013 were a little strange but the qualifying rounds are now over and the winners have been picked.  Good luck to everyone.  

    In this episode Darren is curious to know how things ended up and how the results panned out.  Dennis was optimistic but sadly one of the rules brought on by events of the MOA 2012 competition made it virtually imposable to be competitive.  Some qualifiers simply refused to compete while others submitted scores to put on a good show but left it to "others" to represent their region (country) in the finals.

    EVGA GTX 780 Classified
    The Nvidia GTX 780 is one of the most anticipated video cards not only because it is the flagship retail GPU but also because it is the most powerful GPU that Nvidia will allow mfgs to modify.  At Computex 2013 there were two companies indicating they were launching custom GTX 780 video cards beyond the typical hot-clocked variants.  EVGA had parts in hand while MSI simply had a placeholder on a wall telling folks to swing by sometime in August to see the results.

    Well as things would turn out EVGA is the clear winner and is first to market with their custom GTX 780 and the results of this beast are simply awe inspiriting.

    Tablet Talk and how Tablets are Different
    Microsoft has been pushing Window 8 ever since its release by marketing it as the best mainstream OS you can by, and they have hardware to prove it.  Sadly enough, nobody has been buying their tablet hardware forcing them to drop prices in hopes of moving their inventory.  This move got Dennis and Darren talking about why this happened thinking that maybe it isn't the hardware but how the hardware has been received by mainstream media.
