Well, if she's going to be specifically for Dark Mantis she'll have to have removable head & limbs so he can avoid the use of the chainsaw when it comes to modding!

Is that what happened to his last girlfriend!  :o
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

One market Gigabyte doesn't actually have a foot in so far is the overclocking cooling area. Maybe they could come out with some more extreme components to go with their high-end overclockable motherboards(UD7, UD9 etc) It is a market that is getting more and more interest even amoung the mainstream computer users.

I agree with dark mantis, say like a Gigabyte made DICE/ln2 pot?

There is a huge market in liquid cooling gear nowadays which Gigabyte is missing out on.

Agreed

DONT do the galaxy series!

If your going to do a LCS system do it properly!


Thing is in the east and board manufacturers in particualar are suspicious of any water cooling related issue.

That's it exactly. if they are going to go into the market at all it must be quality gear. The liquid cooling fraternity won't use any old cheap rubbish and that is where a lot of mainstream manufacturers go wrong. They try and "dip their toe in the water" and come up with some half baked kit. Quality, well designed items are what is needed and make a name for themselves along with the overclocking market. The two go together and if you can do well in one the other can be persuaded to follow. This is the streetmap Gigabyte needs to follow for the future.

Another one (please mention below)


Firstly: I would like to see a dual cpu overclocking motherboard.  My sudgestion would be to skip LGA1366 altogether and for Gigabyte to concentrate on a LGA2011 monster killer board, they will be the first board maker with such a setup.  This board will be a wr breaker and hardcore enthusiasts first choice, will blow everything else out of the window ;D

Secondly: I would really love to have a revision of the i-ram, that thing was totaly awesome, most enthusiasts would agree with me I think.  It would be a card with either an x8 or x16 pci-e interphase and of course would allow for DDR3 modules to be inserted.  I would also like someway to access the cards bios so I could tweek to hell out of it for some killer performance, Gigabyte will also be the first to do this.  I see some pcmark05 wr's falling 8)

If this is available already frgive me.

I'd like to have a high voltage USB port or high vooltage setting that would allow me to use external CDROM so that I do not have to connect 2 USB ports to the one drive any more

A Windows RT tablet for executives
10mm thick with 1 USB port, mini HDMI. MicroSDXC with UHS1. Volume rocker and rotation lock, Power, WIFI 802.11n, AGPS, Bluetooth 4. ~ 10 hours battery. 1920x 1080 res 10.1 to 11.6 inch screen 400nits. Gorilla glass. high contrast. Super LCD, mSATA 64GB SSD. 2 MP webcam. 8MP back camera with flash. Audio out, Microphone. Sim slot?, 4G? You decide. Stereo 1.5W speakers. Software amp/graphic EQ to make louder if needed.

all ports are covered and are activated by pushing on them and they pop out; push to lock. This maintains a certain high quality look to the tablet. Should be as light as possible but try to keep it below 700 grams. Angular or flat edges with curved corners  similar to Microsoft surface to avoid apple patents. Make the finish look metalic. Or if plastic to reduce weight add metalic highlights or a metalic/chrome colored ring around the tablet or someting. This would help to make it more solid and feel more premium in users hands.

Stylus silo.
Black color. Chrome buttons/touch areas.
Instead of buttons for volume and rotation lock etc. You can use soft buttons/touch surfaces. Power should be a hard button still though. Further pushes the premium objective.

No air vents at all. Use your expertice in making silent graphic cards to figure this out. Or use convection water pipe idea below.

Comes with MS Office, Skype, Live Essentials, PDF Reader, Adobe flash, Universal Viewer, Media Center ?, Facebook, Youtube/ Twitter apps or launchers. Evernote subscription for 1 months, good Scheduler app, good quick note taking app that has good hand recognition, Voice recognition app for launching actions. A service that finds apps the executive wants to use. It should ask what he would like or what business he is in (Graphics design/Accounting/Stocks/Travel etc and fetch the best apps to satisfy those areas) He then desides which ones he wants to install. For example if he is interested in twitter the tablet should be able to suggest that he install TweetDeck. If he works in stocks. It should display a list of good stock or market apps and the Wall Street journal subscription. This allows the Executive to start work immediately and improves significantly the out of the box experience. Thereby increasing the preceived value of the machine.


Another tablet for business professionals
Windows 8 Pro about 12mm thick. Intel/AMD 2013 processor. 2 full USB ports, RJ45 Ethernet, HDMI, VGA, Full sized SDXC with UHS1, AGPS, volume, rotation lock, power, WIFI 802.1n. BLuetooth 4. 6-8 hours battery. 1.3 MP webcam. no back camera. Audio out, Microphone. No Sim slot. No 3G, no 4G. No WWAN module. no PCIE internal connector. We have 2 Full sized USB ports. If 4G is required; Buy a modem.

SATA3 with
mSATA 16 GB cache SSD and 250GB/320GB 7mm HDD.  or
500GB 7mm HDD or
64GB mSATA SSD or
750 GB Seagate Momemtux XT hybrid HDD
mSATA models SATA ports are not installed (blank spot).

all external ports are covered and are activated by pushing on them and they pop out; push to lock. This maintains a certain high quality look to the tablet. Should be as light as possible but keep it below 800 grams. Angular or flat edges with curved corners (to allow pop out port covers to work) similar to Microsoft surface to avoid apple patents.

1440x900 /1366x768/1280x800 res 10.1 to 11.6 inch screen. 400nits. Gorilla glass. Backlighted hard keys. for Windows 8 Start, App shortcut, Keyboard launch.

Stylus silo. Stereo 1.5W speakers. Software amp or graphic EQ to make louder if needed.

Comes with nothing but the OS, gigabyte selected software and hardware accessories.

Water convection cooling. Pipe with water travels up from CPU to top of tablet goes all around extremes of tablet to get cool. Passes by small (creatively designed) air vents along the way. Returns to CPU heat sink. Valves control so that water can only flow in one direction. No fans.

So members... If you had the choice which tablet would you buy? What changes would you make?
