Posted by: STAFF
At the end of the day the Cougar Spike micro-ATX gaming case is a great value for $24.99 shipped after a $5 mail-in rebate at Newegg.

The Cougar Spike has is all blacked out, has a USB 3.0 front panel port and room for four case fans. There really isn`t much not to like about this case and unless you have a ton of hard drives or solid-state drives, the Spike should do the trick..."

Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend."
