Show notes
Jordan is AWOL for this episode, but Scott, Geoff, and Cyril carry on like the pros they are. Our panelists kick things off with exciting news about Unreal Tournament, and they introduce the first of two guests featured on this episode: Alex Mei of OCZ. After a chat with Alex, Geoff lays down the word on Asus' Z97-A Motherboard. Cyril follows up with a review of Rosewill's newest mechanical keyboard, and then Geoff gives us a first look at Asus' Hyper Express storage device. To wrap up the episode, top-10 contributor Kevin (a.k.a. "the") chats with Scott about AMD's K12.
