After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
In this article we’ll be showing you some of the features unique to the DDR3 edition of the DFI X48 including the fancy new packaging.
Consider this; you’re browsing thru the local computer store knowing that you’ll be in the market for something. As you reach the motherboard section to scan the shelves the best and brightest package on the shelf jumps out at you saying “you must look at me”. Next thing you know the box is under your arm while you beeline to the nearest checkout stand. (or door depending on how much the box costs) Either way the visual marketing has you hooked.
As you guessed it flashy sells, in fact flashy is out front while plain might be stuck in the back.
