    I think 3.16 kernel will be the real best improvement on Hardware starting by BIOS itself began since 3.15 kernel which has issued important ACPI features.

    And the kill windows movement begins
    I think every kernel from here on out will be huge.

    As for computer cases, I'm aiming for Fractal Design Node 804 for my desktop and server. I'm downsizing from ATX to Micro ATX as I only need four PCI/PCI-E slots. For my desktop, I could make a decent gaming rig with AMD APU and all-in-one 240mm water cooling inside the front of the case.

    If possible WiFi chip testing would be nice. Other than video stability issues, I also encounter WiFi stabiity and performance problems (ie. 802.11n doesn't work well so you have to drop down to 802.11g or power management doesn't work so you have to disable it). One time, I remember seeing more frequent jumps in performance during long transfers with an Intel chip while a Qualcomm Atheros chip maintained a smoother profile. That kind of test might be useful to some.

    Too bad, I'm not sure how reliable WiFi performance tests can be due to varying environmental conditions.

    Unaware of any really good (automated-capable) WiFi tests, especially that work cross-conditions, etc.

    Default 720p(1k) testing please and 1080p (2k) too of course

    It would be nice to test the GPUs for normal GNUsers.

    Using 720p (1k) and 1080p (2k) instead of the 1280x720 or 1920x1080, SHORT NAMES are easy to read and understand as VGA, SVGA, WXVGA etc.

    Also 720p for hard games for your GPU is a great solution and it is great for benchmarking to watch how the GPUs scale from 1k to 2k resolutions.

    Not to me at least, every time I see a WQXZVGA I always have to look it up what the heck it means.
