Senior News Reporter and Video Card Editor
Location: Adelaide, Australia
anthonygarreffa at tweaktown dot com
Anthony is a PC enthusiast - with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs.
Anthony is the Video Card Editor and writes articles regarding multi-GPU, multi-monitor content and a bunch of other fringe tech such as VR headsets like Oculus VR's Rift headset, and more. He loves high refresh rate monitors and high resolutions and can't wait to get some 4K panels in his lab.

RAM, Cooling, Cases and Peripherals Editor

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new.
I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. This lead to me starting my reviewing career under the tutelage of Chris Ramseyer at RWlabs. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling and casing, as well as peripherals technology. Hopefully my drive to find the best of the best in technology will benefit the readers of TweakTown.

Consumer Storage Editor

TylerB at tweaktown dot com
Growing up in a small farm town in northern Ohio, technology was never around unless it was in a tractor. At the early age of nine years old may parents brought home our very first PC and I was instantly hooked and quickly learned what it meant to format a hard drive - spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95 as my parents slept. As I grew up many things changed around me, but my love and enthusiast nature always kept my PC at my side.
Eager to get deeper into technology I started reviewing products on my own and eventually met Chris Ramseyer which under his wing I grew and took over at RWLabs.com. When I'm not testing or tearing apart the latest in technology, you will find me working with my brother-in-law turning up dirt on his 35 acre farm.

williamharmon at tweaktown dot com
William Harmon started working with computers back in 2005 and began overclocking all kinds of different setups. My focus back then and even now is extreme cooling using Single Stage Phase units, Cascades and Liquid Nitrogen. During this time I was also in several competitions that GIGABYTE had sponsored, GOOC 2009 and 2010.
Using technics in overclocking and cooling that I have learned over the years I started building high speed workstations and servers for clients who needed higher performing systems. Many of these systems are used in high frequency trader companies and work stations used in all kinds of professions. At TweakTown, I provide and develop accurate test and benchmark methods for servers and other equipment to help make purchasing decisions easier.

I'm a competitive gamer and was an eSports employee. Recent changes have seen me hang up the mouse and move over to the technology world, covering all news for TweakTown, ranging from gaming news to opinion articles and the latest tech releases. Expect to see a few different articles on international eSports news and competitive game releases, as well as audio and mobile device content.
Alongside the gamer life, I like to sometimes head outdoors - either to the gym or driving my car with mates through the Victorian Mountains. Australian born and raised, nothing gets me going quite like a BBQ with your mates, however no shrimps are involved - I'm sorry.
