I feel like we need to take a step back, just for a minute, to the origins of BCCHardware and check out this awesome "case mod". Andreas "Brodholm" Fredholm has spent the last 2 years custom fabricating a chassis for his watercooled dream. Check out the YouTube video and image gallery below.

Final result of the scratch built computer chassis "Model 01" with all the hardware installed. The chassis was designed and built from scratch by me, Andreas "Brodholm" Fredholm.

Android App Pick - Assassin's Creed Pirates

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week you'll be hoisting the main sales and swabbing the poopdeck as we sail the seven seas and drive fear into the hearts of all the scallywags that dare darken our bow. In other words, we picked Assassin's Creed Pirates as our Android App Pick this week and it's a good time. It's not free, but it is a great game that will have you plundering for hours.



Amazon Not-So-Prime

Amazon has an interesting service known as Amazon Prime. What this essentially is, is a service that takes free two day shipping and premium video streaming as well as eBook lending and marries them together for a $79 a year. This adds up to about $6.58 a month and is a bargain. Sadly, Amazon is toying with the idea to raise the price by $20 to $40 a year! This might have a very adverse effect on this service. Netflix may be the winner since they are Prime's main competitor.

Netflix learned the hard way what online video subscribers do in the face of a massive price hike. They scream, they yell, and then -- they flee. Amazon is considering a price hike of its own. The e-commerce giant said Thursday it is considering raising the $79 a year membership price for its Prime service, which combines free two-day shipping with premium video streaming and e-book lending, by $20 to $40. That's only good news for Netflix. But how good? The issue is complicated not only by the lopsided competition between the two but also by Netflix's own tinkering with its pricing structure.

Tango - Your Cell-Phone Sized PC

Tango is a cell-phone sized PC that looks pretty awesome and runs off a Quad-Core AMD A6-5200 APU that comes with integrated HD8400 graphics, 8GB of SODIMM, and up to a 512GB mSATA SSD. This is pretty crazy and shows what we can expect in the coming years.

Steam Music Beta News

With Steam wanting to take over your living room experience with their "Big Picture", it's really no surprise that they are trying to take things a step farther with Steam Music. This will be going to a closed beta very soon so if you want to be a part of the magic (aka, a guinea pig), make sure you check out all the details at the link below. Do we really need yet another music service? What is your favorite? Sound off at the comment link below.

A limited beta of Steam Music will launch shortly for SteamOS and the Big Picture mode of the Steam desktop client. Valve predicts that a Steam Music interface for the vanilla desktop client will follow thereafter.

Electrically Superior

Imagine a new material that could very well change the electronics industry forever! Well there is a substance that could, and it is called graphene. It is supposed to make faster chips than those with straight silicon. The prevalent problem with this material is that pretty much every attempt to make a chip with this substance has ended up breaking up the graphene. IBM has finally found a way to deposit the material on the chip! The chip that they tested is 10,000 times faster than previous attempts!

The resulting integrated circuit is about 10,000 times more powerful than previous parts, IBM claims. The test unit hasn't done more than send a text message so far, but it could lead to future wireless radios that are both faster and consume less power. If you eventually get a graphene-powered smartphone with great data speeds and a long battery life, you'll know who to thank.

Thecus N2310 NAS Server Review

We have just posted up our review of the Thecus N2310 NAS Server. While Thecus may not be the first name you think of when it comes to network storage needs, they maybe should be. The N2310 is a fast, affordable solution that has a lot to offer and won't cost a lot of money. It has a couple of issues that should be noted, so before you drop your cash, make sure to check our review for all the details.


At the end of the day the Thecus N2310 is a pretty solid product. What it lacks in a clean web interface it makes up for in value, performance and features. It has almost as many features as other units costing twice as much and matches performance with other mainstream two-bay NAS units. To sweeten the deal, Thecus has a growing selection of mobile applications that add to the flexibility of the N2310.

Awesome Video of the Day
