I can't believe this... What's jewelry has to do with computer / electronics?! :|

Here dudes, you can order up your diamond engagement ring for your girlfriend, same time you order your next computer build.

If it helps them keep down the cost of computer components, then I'm all for it!

Even if they have to sell stuff like whatever the hell this "really" is :blush:

It's one of the items shown in an "e-blast Super Saver" emailed notice. One could order a massager, this thing, and something like this...

...and be ready to get down and really par-tay!

Yeah, Mothow bought a $30,000 watch for himself, then a $20,000 diamond ring for his wife, and of course another $10,000 in upgrades for his other love -- his top performance PCs. All from Newegg! LOL ;) J/K

Here're the $30,000 watches. http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=1015&...der=PRICED

Well at least watches can be consider as gadgets or electronics products. Jewelry really is a whole another industry. May be the computer retails are not really making enough money for Newegg...

Also, something I am wondering... Is there anyone with a right mind would toss out $20,000+ for an online order without looking at the item physically or talking to somebody? And I am not talking about business transactions, but for a personal purchase.

I would think it's just crazy. $20,000 is a whole lot of money, you can buy a car with that, for god sake!

If you want to see a short decent vid on what the cooler looks like installed, check

I'm always suspicious a lot of after-market coolers for lots of devices use the dirt-cheapiest sleeve-bearing fans they can find, and they'll last about 6-12 months.

Personally, I got good cooling results by making a simple extension bracket and installing a decent 80mm fan with the bracket attached to top of the computer case. I used a rubber standoff on the bracket so there was no problem with resonance with the case mount.

I figured that memory heating was likely fairly proportional to CPU usage, so to keep fan noise down when the system isn't being stressed, I connected the memory cooling fan to the same connection as the CPU cooling fan. Works fine. (However, if you do that be careful that you don't exceed the power handling ability of the CPU cooling fan circuit.)

That's funny.

And here I was thinking someone who bought a watch like that would drink "XX" Dos Equis and be...(insert deep guttural voice here) "The most interesting man in the world".






I can see it now...a TV ad about a guy that uses his incredibly "perfect" $20,000 watch as an ultra-accurate timepiece so he could navigate his yacht on a "one-man solo journey*" to break a world circumnavigation record. But then again...does "art" have to be accurate?


*"one-man" solo journey=along with his "XX" Dos Equis and 2 or 3 stunning women crew, of course.

Hahaha, that's some funnys**t... ;)
...Coming from a background of Physics, with over a decade of study and research to my name, I feel I must mention that my use of the phrase 'perfect time-keeping' is an imperfect concept for all time pieces outside the realm of atomic clocks, no matter how negligible any variance in the passage of time may be from one person to another...

And yeah John, I have the same feel about the Dos Equis guy and this guy's writing. "I don't always trust imperfect time pieces, but when I do, I prefer a true masterpiece such as this." LOL ;)
