Hey folks! After some internet downtime, I'm back on the net and ready to deliver the news. With my cable internet gone, but cable TV still remaining, I fell back to watching the boob tube to ease my boredom, though I had to endure commercial after commercial of Verizon DSL. It wasn't a complete loss though, as I got a few laughs from the irony that I keep wishing for James Earl Jones and Verizon to come to my town and save me from the dark side. Anyway, let's get to it! SilverStone NT02 CPU Cooler @ Overclockers Online "If you're looking for a quality cooler that you can use over several platforms, it's easy to recommend the SilverStone NT02. If coupled with some real thermal paste (Arctic... Read more...
Good morning folks. There's lots of news flowing in today, some of it due in part to yesterday's announcement that Apple will be using Intel processors in the not so distant future. There's also a full compliment of hardware news in the HH in-box, so we've got plenty of good stuff to keep you busy this morning.  In fact, let me get right to it - I've got to pack a bag and catch a plane to San Fran to meet up with the crew at NVIDIA...  Picking up the pieces: John Siracusa mourns the Power PC @ ARS: "A lot of people are excited about the prospect of a future Apple without the dark cloud of CPU uncertainty over its head. I like that idea too, but I only wish it had come to fruition... Read more...
Hey folks, sorry about the lack of updates this weekend, but we have some decent news for you tonight. Included in the list of items, is Abit's RX700 Pro-256PCIE, which comes with 1.6ns GDDR-3, and Corsair's XMS2-6400 modules, which are rated for 800MHz. Both very overclocker friendly... very. Anyway folks, after sleeping 6 hours on a hardwood floor last night, I think I could use a nap on a mattress. Enjoy the news :) Thermalright SI-97 CPU Cooler Review @ 3DXtreme "Today 3DXtreme has the pleasure of testing the latest Socket A heatsink from Thermalright, the SI-97.

Hey folks, it's time for one more update to cap off the night. I received my BFG 6800GT OC w/ NV5 Silencer today... wow, big step up from a 9800 Pro :) Goodnight all. Asus Star Ice CPU Cooler Review @ PC Perspective "At the end of the day I have mixed feelings about the Asus Star Ice CPU cooler. If you are looking for a large cooler that looks like a small jet engine fitted onto your motherboard then the Star Ice is what you seek. To obtain good cooling performance it may also have to sound like a small jet engine."

Hey gang, happy Friday to ya!  I'm still trying to shake a nasty bug and the NyQuil fog from last night.  So let me wish you a great weekend and start you off with the morning news.  Thanks for stopping bye! A.C.Ryan RyanPower2 450w Modular PSU @ Viper Lair: "Overall, the AC Ryan 450w modular power supply is an excellent unit. The only negative thing that I found about it is that there were not enough mini 4-pin connections for my setup. Aside from that, the voltage levels all stayed at proper levels, the modular cable system makes my case look a whole lot cleaner, and actually makes installation easier since I don't have to hunt around for my cables."

Hey folks, we've had some news building up in the box, so it's time for a release :) For something different tonight, I've included a preview of the upcoming game "Pariah", which looks really cool. Really. Well, it's only 11PM but I'm beat, so it's off to bed with me. Goodnight all. High-End CPU Coolers Roundup: The Battle for Silence and Efficiency @ X-Bit labs "Nowadays computer users pay attention not only to performance of their PCs, but also to such characteristic as external design, high stability and silence.

Hey folks, I'm here to bring you a weekend update. We have reviews for the ASUS P5AD2-E Premium Motherboard, the Thermaltake Beetle CPU Cooler, Kingston 1GB PC2-5400 DDR2 Memory Kit, and a few other items. Enjoy! ASUS P5AD2-E Premium @ HEXUS "ASUS has effectively made its i925X-based P5AD2 Premium board redundant with the newer P5AD2-E Premium. The latter carries all the feature nicities of the former but adds in support for 266MHz FSB CPUs. As described, not only is this beneficial from a complete processor support point of view, it also allows the enthusiast to be safe in the knowledge that 200MHz FSB Pentium 4s, which is the vast majority of Intel Pentium 4 chips out there, can be overclocked...

Heya folks! Well it's the start of a new week, and for those of you who are HL2 fans, Valve has mentioned there will be a surprise for the community released this week. CS:S updates? Team-Fortress 2? Releasing the shackles of Steam? Who knows, but I'm personally hoping it's something along the lines of an actual Multiplayer for HL2... CS:S is good and all, but I want to get some frags by shooting people in the face with a radiator using the gravity gun ;) Half Life 2 and CPU scaling @ amdzone "We are eager to test a wide range of MHz with game, and we decided to outfit our nForce 4 Ultra demo board with the fastest components for playing possible. That would be the Athlon 64 FX55, the ATI... Read more...

We've got a slew of news for you on a typically quiet Friday morning.  We're all working on some awesome hardware ourselves, so stay tuned.  I wonder how many of you feel real old after checking out Rob's retro Coleco piece.  I know I got a reality check when I can remember playing that pocket football game when I was a kid.  It was so cool at the time.  Ugghh...getting old :( September High-end Gaming PC Buyer's Guide @ Sharky Extreme: "Today on Sharky Extreme, we've posted our September High-end Gaming PC Buyer's Guide, where we take $2500 in search of high-end Intel...

asetek WaterChill CPU Cooler Review Water Cooling for Pentium 4, Athlon XP, and Athlon 64 By: Chris Angelini August 25, 2003 When you hear one of your friends talk about a skydiving adventure, or even a bungee jump for that matter, do you tend to smile, nod, and think to yourself, "one of these days, buddy..."?  There is an element of danger inherent to every so-called extreme sport.  However, extreme, by its very nature, implies the sort of excitement you just can't experience mowing the lawn on a Saturday morning.  "Humans simply aren't meant to fly down mountains at 70 miles an hour on a skateboard, as they do in the Street Luge," you argue.  That doesn't...

The ECS D6VAA Dual-CPU VIA Powered Motherboard Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun... By, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta July 26, 2001 Dual-CPU systems, previously reserved for use as high-end servers, have now become affordable due to the efforts of companies like ECS, Abit, Intel and Via (among others).  With the increased popularity of Windows 2000 and relatively "low" prices of SMP capable CPUs like the Pentium III, running a Dual-CPU rig on you desktop is now a viable option to the true hardware enthusiast or discerning power user. There is a common misconception when it comes to SMP (Symmetrical Multi-Processing) systems though.  I have been in many situations... Read more...

Abit's VP6 VIA Apollo Pro 133A Dual-CPU Motherboard Worth the trouble? By Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta February 22, 2001 Being afflicted with an addiction to PC hardware, I'm always on the lookout for my next major computer upgrade. Recently, Intel's Pentium 4 arrived on the scene but for me personally, that meant converting over to a whole new platform.  This was more than I wanted to chew on at the time but regardless, I still had that "power hungry" feeling.  Right around the same time as the P4 was making it's debut on "the net", Abit's much anticipated dual processor capable VP6 began shipping, and the wheels started turning... The VP6 is Abit's much... Read more...
