    Computer Hardware Conspiracy Theories, One motherboard to rule them all
    The best thing about a good story is the ability to find a little truth in an otherwise farfetched tale.  In the world of computer hardware that tale is just how precise every marketing release is across all of the hardware makers.  For instance one year there is a new way to present onboard audio with a separated audio channel thing is EVERYONE is doing the same thing, the same way.  Another year we have three tiers of motherboard hardware marketing across EVERY motherboard maker.  Overclocking specific motherboards all end the same year and the list goes on.

    So what if there was a single entity controlling how all of these companies operate??  In this segment Dennis and Darren dive into the theories to find the facts and you won’t believe what they uncover.

    EK Waterblocks Classic RGB P360 Watercooling kit
    One of the classic questions I get is “I want to build a watercooling loop but don’t know what to buy”.  With the plethora of cooling gear out there it can be a challenging question to address given that most of the choices will be budget driven and a little time sensitive.

    EK Waterblocks has made the decision a little easier to make in a series of affordable watercooling kits designed for the watercooling novice looking to graduate up from an AIO.  The kit comes with everything you need to get started with a single CPU loop with an option to expand the loop to include video cards, motherboards, sound cards and NVMe SSDs.  Basically anything that can be fitted with a waterblock could be cooled with these kits.

    The Duo talk about the kit and how best it could be used, what could be upgraded and who would want to buy one.
