Welcome Back!

I apologize for not getting this up and done sooner. Needless to say the forums, and the front page got hacked, we since then have locked things down, and things appear to be better over all.

I was able to get the front page done sooner, but the forums with all of its data was MUCH more difficult to deal with. Needless to say, I just finished it! YAHOO!

Just in time with Facebook about to take a nose dive, and doing other crazy things to people. (Censorship, etc etc).

        LOL.

        Ad revenues don't come CLOSE to keeping this site open. XCPUs pulls about $500 a month in bandwidth usage. Ad revenues are $50 a month, on a good month. Premium member fees help some, but overall we still don't cover 1/3 of the site costs that way.

          Well maybe reviews will bring in sponsors. But the longer the site goes without a sponsor the better and more reliable our reviews are. That way we don't look like we are giving our sponsors a free ride on the reviews.

            So getting sponsors is the way that sites like Tomshardware and firingsquad and peeps like them make mad money?

              Yeah you see they have more adds then just google ads. They have direct sponsors like Corsair or other parts manufactures. They may even have Dell and/or HP adds. For those they went directly to the companies or those companies came to them wanting to buy add space.

                I would be willing to send my Corsair HX-1k for testing if there were a few guidelines met.

                Basically the only guideline would be it can't cost me any more money.

                Fry my PSU then I get a new one .. Shipping would have to be free too.

                Only reason to be so stingy is every penny affects my build budget.

                  We cover shipping both ways.

                  And if we kill it, we cover shipping for the RMA.

                  OUR stipulation: your PSU must be under current warranty. We make no guarantees if it is not.

                    You know its good to get pics of the inside. Primary the overall layout and the capacitors used. Its also nice to have a full breakdown of the components but i'm not sure any of us is ready to tackle that much detail.
