Good afternoon folks! Ok, first thing that caught my eye when sifting through the reviews and spam in my box... 64 Bit Far Cry! The 64 Bit version of Far Cry is now available, and of course to use it you need Windows XP 64, and a AMD64 CPU. What's really interesting though, is they've added extra content and given the engine a bit of an upgrade which improves the already amazing visuals. Click here for the patch if you meet the requirements.

The Dual-Core War: Is Intel in Trouble? @ CoolTechZone: "After years of anticipation, dual-core microprocessors are finally a reality. Both Intel and AMD were touting dual-core microprocessors as the inevitable future, and something that would certainly take computing to the next level. At numerous tradeshows and computing conventions, analysts and media predicted the launch date of multi-core CPUs; some said Intel would be the first to bring its chips to the market while others stated the opposite. Whatever the speculations, Intel was indeed the first one to introduce its dual-core chips. In fact, they made a sudden decision to send out preview units to selected media outlets for independent...

Memory has come a long way in the past few years. What was once a nondescript PC component, consisting of nothing more than a few black chips on a green PCB, has since evolved into a brightly colored, and lighted, crucial system component with a multitude of different heat spreader types and speed grades. Just take a look at this pair of Corsair and Mushkin memory sticks of what was, at the time, high-end RAM in 2001, and compare them to the Corsair XMS Xpert modules we'll be looking at today, and you'll immediately agree with us. The deep rooted desire to have a high-performing, tricked-out rig that's ingrained into the minds of many enthusiasts has spawned entire industries, and now virtually... Read more...

Chaintech SE6600G Review @ AMDZone "Aesthetically the SE6600G is not too different from other cards on the market, a blue PCB and a matching blue heatsink with a translucent fan adorn Nvidia's GPU. In addition to that Chaintech have put silver heatsinks over the memory modules on the PCB to give the memory a little extra cooling.

Hey folks, my internet is back and so is the news :) Today we have a few articles that shy away from the actual hardware review, such as the "Basics of RAID", and "Are you addicted to the internet".

Happy Friday everyone, the weekend is about to get started.  This morning we have a good lineup of reading for you from great looking Albatron mobo to a thoughtful editorial on Blue-Ray technology.  You better get started, there's some good reading here.

Good morning everyone, welcome back.  With some fairly warm (for winter) weather hitting the northern portion of the HH Labs, my hopes of breaking out the Mountain Bike early this year are looking better everyday.  However, until the frost gets out of the ground, I think I will hold off from bouncing around the trails too much.  The ground is hard enough without it being frozen ;) Here is your AM shot of juice.  Get at it...  Corsair Flash Voyager USB 2.0 @ Viper Lair "We were very pleased with the Flash Voyager's speed and more importantly, the durabilty.

Hey folks, it's that time again. Using my computer earlier today, I noticed it acting a little funny. The first thing I suspected was a virus, and as I usually do when this happens, I went to find the Avast! Anti-Virus setup file. I decided to check for a new version on their web site, and while checking out the site, I noticed the home edition is now a free offering. Drago, a forum member, had informed me awhile ago, but I'd forgotten until now. If your looking for a good, free, virus scanner, I suggest you give it a try. Anyway, here's the news, and a Press Announcement from Corsair. Corsair Introduces COOL Water Cooling Kit Fremont, California, January 27, 2005: Corsair Memory, Inc., a global... Read more...

Good morning everyone, welcome back :)  With quite the mammoth amount of snow falling over the past few days, things have been "interesting" up here in the Great White North.  Not that I am really complaining though, this fresh snow has enabled me to patch a few holes in the roof of my igloo which where letting in a nasty draft ;) Nonetheless, it is getting late and the news-bin is filling up.  Here is your AM shot...  Logisys Pitbull 500W Power Supply @ ExtremeMHz "Power supplies are probably one of the most overlooked and under appreciated components in a computer system.
