Normally I am far more relaxed and not "yelling" into a mic, thus voice has a more normal bass, but far more monotone and doesn't fly well for videos. I specifically pick up the pace and add treble to be able enunciate more clearly and use it to (I don't know the proper terminology) but to direct the importance of what I'm describing .
The cartilage structure in the nose adds the "nasally" sound.

Just in case you needed an indepth analysis of why I talk the way I do lol

Fix.. nice video, although I'll have to agree with SKY here.. You were extra aggressive on those accessories, boy.. look, throw (who cares... ) lol..

And boy, didn't know you have Pink fingers, wow :p

Anyhow, the card looks sexy, really like how XFX packed their cards, static bag, and foam on both sides..

Thanks for the video..

XFX called. They want to know why you hate their accessories so much. ;)

Call back, and let them know to ship more cards, so I can receive mine and take real good care of their accessories...

Next video review, throw the stuff around like the Sweedish Chef from the Muppet Show. That'll fire some folks up.



I thought it was appropriate for Canadian content!

For those concerned, the length is 11.1", not 10.5".

Why didn't you through the GPU too? It feels lonely because all its friends got tossed and now it is missing the experience of being thrown into the air.


Great little video and I think you did a really good job. Better than a lot of unboxing videos and you showed benchmarks.
