It’s hard to believe that last week, gamers from all over North America flocked to Seattle for this event. And now we’re home editing video and photos and I think we’ve got some great stuff here to show you. There were definitely some real firsts for PC hardware and gaming at this year’s PAX Prime 2013 including the unveiling of the highly anticipated HAF Stacker by Cooler Master and the first public performance of INTEL’s SSD overclocking technology. And let’s not forget about how stupid wrong anyone is when they say that PC gaming is dead. At PAX Prime, PC gaming is stronger and healthier than ever.

We hope you enjoy our video coverage featuring some really great companies doing their part to support and encourage PC gaming. I now present to you, part one and part two of our PAX Prime 2013. video coverage in glorious 1080p HD!
