    kinda miss the old ways

    I miss the old PcPer . The motherboard section has subsections of different brands . This hodgepoge mess of all jumpled into one sections is for the birds IMO . Dimishes the reason for posting here . Anyone else agree !
    sound off!!

    Re: kinda miss the old ways

    I never understood the point of dumping all of the mobo sub-forums into one either. I mean sure, some of them were dead, but this new way makes it harder to find info on a specific mobo. Imo, it just drives a lot more potential new forum members to the manufacturer's own forums.

    Exactly cause this place is like a ghost town now hence the merging of mobo forums. When this place use to practically be all about mobos.

    Re: kinda miss the old ways

    There wasn't enough traffic in the individual forums to justify separate forums. This change isn't the cause of the reduced posting, it was the result.

    yep and changing that only added fuel to the fire . I could see getting rid of the motherboard subforums , like epox and soyo that no longer were in business . But this current layout blows chunks bigtime.

    Looking at only the first page I see a full 2 months of threads. Hardly seems like a problem. The only complaint I could see is perhaps needing to search a bit harder to find threads related to specific boards or issues.

    Of course the issue of the ghost mods still hasn't been taken care of either I see, but that's a whole 'nother thread.

    Re: kinda miss the old ways

    I agree , this site has helped me alot with the motherboard sub forums . I joined awhile ago , My first board was a soyo kt400 black addition and I have to say there was alot of good people on that forum . Then I went to gigabyte and there also was alot of tremendous help in the sub forum . I agree bring it back !

    Re: kinda miss the old ways

    I still have the soyo dragon kt400 black edition , it has an amd xp 2600 barton in it and it runs like a champ . Still have most of my boards - Gigabyte k7nnxp , Gigabyte k8nsc - 939 - AMD 64 Dual core 4200 and a Gigabyte k8U 939 with a AMD 64 3000 + . They all run good , dont know what Im gonna do with them , maybe give them to some school but their kinda old . Seriously though I appreciated the sub forums on motherboards !

    Re: kinda miss the old ways

    My guess is Asus and Gigabyte are the 2 most popular boards.

    How about an Asus folder, a Gigabyte folder and one for all others?
    Asus M8Z77-V Deluxe
    Intel 3770K
    G-Skill 1600 16G
    Corsair H100
    EVGA 670 GTX
    2 Corsair Force 3 120G (Raid 0)
    2 x Seagate 1T 6G
    2 Samsung SyncMaster T260HD Monitors
    Thermaltake Level 10 UGK
    Silverstone Olympia OP1000 1000W
    Windows 8
