[H]ard|OCP Week in Reviews

Today is Friday and you know what that means! It is time once again for the [H]ard|OCP Week in Reviews! For anyone that might have missed them, we like to take a quick look back on the hardware evaluations and articles we posted earlier in the week. We kicked the week off with our Crucial M500 480GB SSD review, followed by our Metro: Last Light Video Card Performance and IQ Review. Finally, we wrapped things up with our evaluation of the MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning.

Achievements Have Ruined How I Play Games

While most people treat achievements as extra incentive, a challenge or simply a reason to play a game through for a second time, this guy is letting it ruin how he plays games. confused

This is how I play video games now. While I sit here typing this sentence, my gamerscore sits at 122,595G. By the time you read this, it will be higher. I am an achievement hunter, or in less-polite company, an achievement whore. And it’s ruining video games.

Silverstone Argon AR03 CPU Cooler

The crew at techPowerUP! has the Silverstone Argon AR03 CPU cooler on the test bench today. Overall, this is a very positive review so head on over and check it out.

Silverstone has expanded their portfolio of CPU coolers with the all new Argon series AR03 cooler. Featuring a blue and white fan and six heatpipes, this traditional tower cooler serves up exceptional cooling performance with solid acoustics.

How Does Internet Porn Affect Teens?

I sincerely hope nobody spent money on this study about internet porn and its affects on teenagers.

How has the ubiquity of online porn affected the sexual development of children and teens? The scientific consensus is: We have no idea. A new comprehensive report from Middlesex University London (undertaken on behalf of England’s Children’s Commissioner) is titled "Basically Porn Is Everywhere," but clear insights into the effects of that material are nowhere to be found.


NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770

Another NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 review has popped up on the internet today. Head on over to eTeknix and see what they had to say about the GTX 770. For comparison purposes, you can see our evaluation here.

Working through the new 700 series line-up, NVIDIA are now lifting the lid on their next card, the GTX 770. Like the GTX 780, the GTX 770 has had many rumours surrounding its release and like the 780, these are all related to specifications, performance and most of all the GK104 core and a GTX 680.
