Forum Feature: The Case Hoarding Therapy Group

Most of us are guilty of it – tech hoarding. Whilst some can justify it (all these parts are for review work, honest!), some just like to collect PC components. In “Dr” Arboreal’s thread, community members can come clean about their obsession – in this case, *cough*, cases. The first step is acknowledging the problem, right? Starting with Arboreal’s list of mostly Silverstone products, other forum members have started listing what they have sitting about, mostly SFF, but with a few larger enclosures hiding in the crowd. The broad spectrum of cases in the possession of the community is mindblowing …

In a semi-regular series, we will have a short look at various projects and one-off builds in the forum. This is not a paid promotion in any way, just a selection of cool stuff we like!

Forum Feature: SENTRY 2.0

In a semi-regular series, we will have a short look at various projects and one-off builds in the forum. This is not a paid promotion in any way, just a selection of cool stuff we like! Hot on the heels of the first generation Sentry, the Dr Zaber team has taken it upon themselves to update the concept. Taking feedback into account from the first production run, as well as crowdsourcing more, the team has stepped it up a notch (or three) in design and execution.   For most in the SFF community, the Sentry needs no introduction. However, for …

Raven Ridge HDMI 2.0 Compatibility – Forum Members to the Rescue!

Our community forum is a fantastic place, with our users banding together to help out those of us who need assistance on various SFF related topics. Recently, user Hifihedgehog started a thread surrounding unofficial support of HDMI 2.0 with AMD’s new Raven Ridge APU platform. Whilst manufacturer specs have been vague on the situation, Hifihedgehog set out to find out exactly which motherboards support the standard with a Raven Ridge APU.   Fantastic news for Raven Ridge! Thanks to an adventurous redditor, it turns out that in at least one case HDMI 2.0 capability is, in fact, not dictated by the …

SFF Network Swag Store is Live!

You asked, and we delivered… SFF Forum swag is now available, permanently! When we ran our previous ‘swag’ campaign, there were many who missed out, or wanted to get even more. In light of this, we’ve (rather delayed, mind you), re-launched the swag store! We will have reasonable, no-nonsense pricing for all of the items, and we’ve used Teespring in order to provide the most reasonable international shipping rates that we can find. There’s been a lot of thought expended on our part in order to provide the sorts of items and price points that will be of interest and …

We’re at CES! (And a quick-but-important forum update)

We’re incredibly excited to be able to share not one, but two exciting updates with our readers of SFF Network, as well as our community at SFF Forum. First: although listeners to our podcast (Low Volume) will have already heard of this news, SFF Network will be on the show floor at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, with our newest writer Drew Duncan scouring the conference for announcements and news that’s specifically pertinent to SFF. With press credentials and camera in hand, this is a fantastic development and opportunity for us, as we’ve previously only been able to rely on second-hand reports …
