Recycled Laptop Bag perfect for back to school

Dream Arcade’s Octane 120 features a kegerator

Seriously, a built-in kegerator, this arcade machine offers several nice speccs, but nothing can quite top the fact that is has a kegerator. Not only that but there is a tap right next to the steering wheel and then one the back as well.

Overclockers push Q6600 to 5.1GHz

I've been known to dabble in the art of overclocking from time to time. I wouldn't describe myself as a “hardcore” overclocker though. You know the types, the ones that are dumping liquid nitrogen on their CPU so they can squeeze out every last drop of speed. Well a group of such people recently managed to push their Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 to a whopping 5.1GHz.

The media has even poked fun at it but Apple has full on embraced it with the Mac and PC Guys in commercials. That being said, these CEO icons are no longer really at war, and even though Microsoft still pushes more units each year, Apple is the clear winner.
