ASRock to make a bang with four X79 Mobo’s

Published

The launch of Intel’s new X79 platform is knocking on our doors with info and pics from various manufacturers. We have see many flavours from Gigabyte, Asus, Biostar, EVGA and MSI. Now we get a taste of X79 from ASRock. Lets have a look at whats cooking.

First off the line we see the flagship board called the X79 Extreme9. The board has 8 DDR 3 Dimm slots, dual 12V power connectors and five bad ass PCI express 16 slots for an insane crossfire/SLI setup. It also features Creatives new core3d audio chip for unparalleled audio quality.

Staying in the enthusiast bracket, we have the Extreme7. It has 6 memory slots instead of 8, 6 PCIe slots, more cooling than the Extreme9, and unfortunately lacks the Creative core3d expansion card.

The third offering is named the Extreme4. It has 2 less memory dimms than the Extreme7, 2 less PCIe x16 slots which are well distanced from each other to allow for a breezy three-way SLI/Crossfire setup. Although it doesnt feature as many PCIe x16 slots it has 7 PCI in total which make it the most versatile board here.
Finally, whats a a complete lin-up without the mini guy? The Extreme 4 is the ultimate mATX board for those looking to build an HTPC or something easy to carry to around.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents.

On her way she met a copy. The copy warned the Little Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was left from its origin would be the word “and” and the Little Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe country. But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again. And if she hasn’t been rewritten, then they are still using her.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer.

Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. “How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was.

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections.

Prince Harry Joins South African War Against Animal Poachers

Prince Harry joins the ranks of the SA military unit situated in the Kruger National Park.

Published

With Africa’s war against poaching reaching an all-time high, Prince Harry has joined the ranks to contribute what he can to the fight.

The 30-year-old royal has always shown an interest in things beyond the whole ‘being royal in England’ thing, and with his military training, he has offered his services to South Africa’s Operation Corona – an operation that has already seen more than 300 poachers killed.

“Harry will be with me for quite some time. We’ll try to keep him safe,” retired Major-General Johan Jooste told the Daily Mail. Jooste is part of the army unit deployed in the Kruger National Park.

Harry has been going on night patrols with an army unit in the reserve, where last week, rangers confronted three poachers at Crocodile River which ended in a shootout.

The night patrols use tracker dogs in order to hunt poachers, and let off green smoke bombs to alert helicopter pilots of a safe landing zone who then deploy attack teams. It’s a very efficient, and effective operation.

Operation Corona has already seen 300 poachers killed.

In South Africa, most arrests of poachers are unsuccessful because the poachers usually get diplomatic immunities and are back doing it the next day. The poachers also tend to open fire and engage in armed combat with rangers and other protection services.

The killing of a fellow human is always tragic, but it is the only outcome given what’s at stake for either side.

Published

Great news for techies; Orange has opened its very first brick-and-mortar store in South Africa on Friday 26 June 2015. The MenStuff team was invited to get a sneak-peek of the new store before it opened and now we’re bringing you all the details on what you’ll find on their shelves in the future as well as some incredible opening specials that you need to take advantage of.

Orange isn’t exactly new to this country; the company launched its online store in South Africa in 2013 and it is because of the success of this online store that they were inspired to open a physical store to meet growing customer demand. Located on Dryer Street, Claremont the new store in Cape Town is set to be the place to shop for all your gadget needs and shows Orange’s commitment to its ever-growing customer base in the country.

Offering a wide range of the latest gadgets and accessories (including everything from cellular phones and tablets to gaming consoles, fitness trackers, smart watches, cellphone covers and more) as well as a bunch of new services, the Orange store is just what the customer ordered. For those who are unsure of online shopping, the store will offer click-and-collect facilities and act as a drop-off point for repairs and returns, a point of sale for Orange’s Top-Up and travel products.

I’ve always been impressed at how competitive Orange’s prices are and I’ve often found great deals on the online store. The online store also offers an impressive range of items, some of which are not easily available anywhere else in South Africa so it’s exciting to know that the physical store will bring some of that magic to South Africans who might not yet be convinced about online shopping.

Of course, with any store launch there are some exciting specials and Orange is offering the following items at great prices while stocks last at its Claremont store: Pick up the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact (Black) at R4 999, Google Chromecast at R 599, Sony PS4 at R5 299, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, 7” WiFi + 3G at R2,499. There are loads more specials available as well as some enticing deals like ‘Buy an LG G4, and get the LG G Watch for only R2 999′ and ‘Buy any Huawei Smartphone and pay only R499 for the Huawei E5330′.

Creative Duo Shaking Up Durban’s Design Scene With Tamaloola

Local Durbanites mix up the pot plant game with an awesome new concept. James had a closer-look…

Published

Up until recently, Durban has been left off the map when it comes to beautiful design. There has been a resurgence of interest in South Africa’s third largest city due to some exquisite developments like the revived waterfront promenade and Jonathan Liebman’s new initiative in Durban City centre. Tamaloola – a recent addition to this new breed of great design – is the brainchild of Durban based design-duo Tam and Grant Powell.

The idea for their pot plants came out of necessity, Tam explains that: “it was getting close to Christmas, we had a limited budget, and loads of people to buy for”. After conceptualising she decided to combine concrete and the plants she loves into the perfect Christmas gifts.

Once the first batch came out, like anyone these days, she decided to Instagram them to show friends what her and her hubby had been up to.

I posted a picture on my personal Instagram because I was so chuffed with how they turned out – and the response was overwhelming! I had loads of family and friends asking if I would make for them and so we decided it might be a good venture to try and see how it goes.

Tamaloola bring a whimsical aesthetic to a material that often gets overlooked in high end design. The pot plants make for great a great way to add interest points, and modernise your home, or great gits. They trendy minimalist forms are off set with geometric patterns that will add the cool-factor to any space.

Tamaloola

Where can you find these awesome pots? Well, Tamaloola has only been around since last Christmas but luckily for Durbanites they are selling at farmers markets around the Durban area. What about the rest of us? Powell says they are exploring other markets and platforms at the moment.

We are still in super early stages and we are only selling at a few places, but we are loving it and so excited to see what’s in store!
