Monster Gaming Machines & Overclocking The Haswell-E!
Chip wrote in on Facebook, "What about doing an updated gaming pc build this year from the ground up? I know Shannon has been wanting to upgrade/build a new windows pc for a while now...." Patrick and Michael just built a pair of Haswell-E machines with Core i7 5820K & 5930K CPU, 32 GB of DDR4, SSD drives and GTX 970/980 GPUS for video editing... turns out the specs are even more over the top than PCPer's over the top gaming build, aka theDream System. Would we build one of these for gaming? Did overlocking the Haswell-E CPUs deliver more performance for video rendering or gaming? Find out more in the video... and if $2500-2900 PC builds aren't your thing, check out the $380 gaming PC build we didE
Free Virtual Machines For Testing A New OS!
He writes, "I downloaded and was able to install Windows 10 Technical Preview on my Windows 7 system into a VirtualBox instance. Therefore no backing up of my base system, no danger of something going wrong. Best of all if I don't like it a key click removes it from my system leaving the base system intact." Thanks for the reminder that is a great free VM for experimenting with operating systems... you can run literally run Windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4, 2.6 and 3.x), Solaris and OpenSolaris, OS/2, or OpenBSD safely on your Windows, Linux, Macintosh, or Solaris box. So cool... and free, too! Thanks Russ!

Robert messaged us on Facebook, "Any ideas on rooting a Ematic eBook Reader & Internet tablet? I am wondering how to root this device without Windows, Virtual Box or Wine." That's gonna be a tough one... find out why in the video, and why you might want to check Cyanogenmod before you buy a new tablet or phone you want to root. Meanwhile, @thesamkash tweets, "@tekzilla have you considered making a tequila? The Tekzilla Tequila."
