Hi AkG, I could reply to all of your point but I think it would be rather futile at this time. I made my comments in the spirit of constructive criticism, it was not intended to be a personal attract on your integrity & it grieves me that you find it so.


For any distress that I have caused you; you have my sincerest apologies. Regards, Dizz

Dizz please ask any and all questions you want. No umbrage taken, no distress :) Hell I don't mind being told my review blows as you told me WHY it did for you (that's all I've ever asked). For that I thank you.

For over 22 years I have loved learning new things about computers and love even more passing it along. If I didn't I would have burned out long ago let alone volunteer my time here. I will actually being adding some of your ideas into future reviews (especially highlighting mounting info / problems into the "specs" section when available), if/when they fit into a scope of a review. Some I already do (dual fans) but I felt it wouldn't fit into the scope of this review.

All I ask from everyone is no personal attacks against me or other HWC reviewers. It may not have been given in this case but text is a very hard medium to convey things in. Being told I'm a piker...hurts. It wasn't intended so no harm no foul!

If I came across as being condescending in my answer to your questions I humbly apologize as that was not my intention. I don't claim to know everything and I certainly know I'm not perfect! So please lets continue the discussion as a different POV can only be a GOOD THING. That way we can make HWC an even better place.

Heh, I love the $/Performance comparison. Being a genuine cheap ass I want to spend the least amount possible for the best cooler. It also gives me a great picture of exactly what product is better when suggesting a product. Many people have no idea what they want, they just know how much they want to spend and it is very handy.

Once again I am sorry if you think that there was a personal attract in my initial post, implied or otherwise. I can tell you that whether it is a professional or personal matter; I have never resorted to character assassination & never will.


I have tried as best as I could to balance what I deemed deficient against other positives. The intent was to offer a different perspective, obviously not a ďGamersĒ perspective but does that automatically make it invalid (rhetorical).


Tech sites wonder why their female readership/membership is so low, well I can tell you that in the short time that I have been on these forums that this is the second time I have had to apologise for upsetting someone, perhaps itís a boy thing & I just donít get it.


Anyway, Iím more than a little upset right now & I need to re-evaluate whether or not it is worthwhile participating in these forums anymore.


Regards, Dizz

No one really needs to apologize. Let's all be honest: Text is not an easy way to communicate. We all do our best.

You are a valued member here and always will be. I recommend we all just chalk this up to lessons learned and call it a day.

Dizz there is no need to leave, We need more female point of view on this site. Like Sky said you are a valued member and always will be. The fact that you provided AkG with some insight to other testing methods is a plus and will only make reviews better. All our reviews like to hear constructive criticism as in each review they strive to make it better than their last.
