    Alder Lake and Forza Horizon 5 benchmarks to kick the new site off

    Edit: And as it is getting cold again, new F@H team?
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Sorry to hear this... I might not post much but I've visited regularly for many years.
    It's been a great site and will be missed.

    HEXUS ... an inexhaustible fountain of British humour (with some Danish humour mixed in) whenever the word was about UK-related, government-related and infrastructure (especially sewer)-related topics. Like the comments in these:

    https://hexus.net/tech/news/network/...bre-broadband/
    https://hexus.net/business/news/telc...a-water-pipes/

    For me it has also been a way of keeping in touch with British English, which is the only proper English, in a flood of US and international tech sites.

    Thank you David Ross, and thank you to everyone who helped HEXUS live and grow!

    Re: Cheer up! It’s not the end of the world…



    Thanks for your hard work over the years. Hexus and to a lesser extent bit-tech have always been outlets that I've trusted. And whilst I'm not a prolific poster here, I enjoy this community, which is rare for online communities these days, glad to see that the forum will remain open, but without the site, I'm not sure how much new blood it'll see?

    I came for the Scan free delivery, but Scan is a farce anyway, so I stayed for the conversation.

    Very sad to hear about this. I've been visiting Hexus for the news, reviews & forums almost every day for many years, so sad to see it go. Thanks DR for all your hard work, & good luck for your future endeavours.

    Re: Cheer up! It’s not the end of the world…

    I can't remember when I first started coming here. Probably the early 00s, and possibly had a different login. It's been my go to for tech news, first thing in the morning. It's going to be strange trying to decouple it from my muscle memory.

    All the best for the future. And goodbye to everyone else on these forums.




    Edit. Oh wait. Just read the update that states the forums are staying open. Party time!
