I like http://flatpanelshd.com for the most comprehensive monitor/tv reviews:
I would like to see a roundup of microSDHC cards I can't work out which 32GB card to buy...
We need to determine once and for all which is the best - class 2/4/6/10?
They all vary greatly across capacities and classes, in terms of read/write (sequential and random).
Apparently many class 10 cards have pitifully slow random write speeds, which can cripple your smartphone.
But the sequential read/write needs to be as fast as possible so that copying files between the card and the desktop does not take forever.
I would like to see the new Aquero 5 line of fan controllers reviewed if possible.
One went up today and I've been given some time this afternoon to write up the Asus P8P67-M Pro this afternoon too so expect to see that soon, probably early next week.
Intel seems to have quietly released some budget CPU's based on Sandy Bridge:
No reviews anywhere at the moment. Haven't they sent any samples to you guys?
Would be interesting to read your opinion on them, as they are very cheap.
Mini ITX motherboards
Combine the two...
Please include H61, H67 and P67 mini-ITX m/b's as well, plus any Z68 models that make be coming (not sure).
Thanks a lot.
Mouse Mat's! I find the standard size ones far too small but have no idea what I want and theres all different sorts like the hard and soft ones and so on.
So...is it coming?
Corsair H100 pleeeese
It'd be nice to have a reliable review of CPU coolers. Not just the cheap ones which people may go and buy from PC World but also a comparison of the heatsinks separate from the fans. Personally I'm running the Prolimatech Mega Shadow which I believe got an average response from Custom PC but I find that with a pair of Akasa Apache fans it has little to fear from the competition bar a single degree or so.
The reason I say this is that there seems to be little point in reviewing lots of stock setups as the real world difference to a common PC is very little., there's A grade coolers and then the rest. However if you're overclocking or going for a silent PC then you're likely to be willing to spend a bit more cash and a lot more time on the solution but unless you've got unlimited resources then it's difficult to make an informed decision.
Also little mention is made of thermal grease. Surely a publication which is aimed at the enthusiast market would be the place to find such an in depth look at a central part of PC building which is cooling.
On a general moan, can we please have more AMD stuff reviewed? It seems like someone has decided that Intel and Nvidia rule the roost on everythng and therefore we don't need the new stuff for AMD chips and different AMD graphics card versions reviewed but I'm getting bored with such a one sided look at the market, hence my earlier request for a review of the EAH6970DCII which has been reviewed elsewhere as a really good version of the AMD card. Instead we seem to have more reviews of stock AMD equipment and a smidgen of various Nvidia 3rd party cards.
I hope it is in the pipeline.
Later than planned i know but its up. Had to wait till i'd returned from Taiwan in the end.
Check out the latest issue of Custom PC which goes on sale tomorrow, it's got an Micro-ATX case labs test which includes the NZXT Vulcan.
The latest issue also has our first ever rotary tools labs test in it
Go, run to the newsagents!
I was most impressed with the latest issue, kudos to you all. All those rotary tools must've taken a while to get a feel for.

Could you review the rules around giving reputation, please? I got (anonymous) rep today for a comment I made in November that wasn't particularly inspiring, on a thread that's long since finished with, and it's confusing the hell out of me.
