Good evening folks, I'm here for the nighttime update. There's just enough news for a good reading session before bed, which is where I'm heading after this. One review you might want to check out, is the Lian Li V2000 Tower review... the case has brakes. As silly as it sounds, it's actually a pretty good idea. Anyway, goodnight folks :) Lian Li V2000 Tower Review @ GruntvillE.com "The entire Lian Li V-Series comes standard with billet aluminum wheels. Now if your desk is slanted, this could pose a problem but Lian Li thought of everything. The wheels come with a brake! The brake consists of a billet rectangle attached around the center of the rear axel and a metal plate. When the brake... Read more...
Hey folks, just wanted to bring you one last update before I head off to bed. My allergies have been kicking me around all day, so I'm in need of some sleep... good sleep. I'm sure the assortment of cold medicine available will see to that :) Here we go... CaseBuy EZ Power Supply Tester @ LAN Addict "CaseBuy's EZ Power Supply Tester is very easy to use and it will tell you if you are getting power on a rail. Just don't expect it to do any more than that. This little gadget can save you a lot of time by weeding out dead power supplies, but you'll want to have a multimeter handy to make sure that you're getting the right amount of power from your rails before you use the PSU you're testing."...

Morning friends, we've got a broad range of news bits this AM.  Whether you want feedback on a new case, hard drive or power supply, it's covered.  Also, there's something a little different from BigBruin in the StarTech.com TV Jockey.   It's good to get something different once in a while, it keeps things interesting. Chenbro Gaming Bomb II @ Viper Lair: "Chenbro came out a winner with this case, its' cooling capabilities are great, the handles make it a dream to move around, and the tool-less installation of drives makes swapping drives in and out a breeze. The case itself is rather light, as would be expected with an aluminum case, and the brushed metal and rounded... 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.

Good morning all :)  Sorry about the later update, yours truly is feeling really under the weather today.  So, I don't mean to be rude, but we are going to get things started so I can get some rest.  Here is your AM update...  Thermaltake PurePower 680W Power Supply @ Bjorn3D "After you stop drooling at the thought of having dual video cards in an SLI setup, you come to realize some practical concerns. Cost is the most obvious one. Most of us struggle to pay $450 for one video card, but spending $900 to $1,000 on two is just ludicrous to many people. Beyond the cost though are other important concerns, like power requirements. More and more power supplies are including... Read more...
Morning there folks, you've got a sleepy JeffB checking in with your latest news bit.  A couple of nights ago I picked up HL2 so I could use it in future benchmarks. Surely, I took a few minutes to see how it played, even though time is precious these days.  Needless to say, it's been 2 days since I bought the game and I would say I've invested about 10 hours in gameplay ;)  What can I say, it's awesome, with amazing realism.  After a bit of a let down with Doom 3, it's nice to be pleasantly surprised after spending $50 on a game.  Get it, you won't be sorry!  Next up is a bit of the news, and don't forget, if you see something you think we should post, let us know....

Good morning all.  It looks like we have a few more last pushes of reviews before the holidays kick in.  Did you get all of your shopping done?  All I can say is thank God for Amazon.  My total time spent in the mall shopping this year was less than 2 hrs and even that wasn't too terrible.  Now I just need to prepare for all the extra eating that comes along with package.  This morning we have a few tid-bits for you, so let's jump into it...  Matrix Orbital MX222 LCD Kit @ Bjorn3D: "Case mods have gone from being a simple fad to an all out competition between friends, foes, and everyone in between. Everywhere you go there is someone with a PC filled with... Read more...
Good morning all :)  Last night I decided that I should hit up the local shopping mall in hopes of finishing up the last of my Xmas shopping.  Thankfully I was able to get in and out in a short period of time.  I don't like crowds to begin with, but, there is nothing worse then a large crowd of people in the "Christmas sprit" shopping... *shudder* ;) Go grab a mug and pull up a chair.  Here is your first shot of juice for the day...  OCZ ModStream Power Supply Roundup @ CoolTechZone "There is a new trend that recently emerged in the world of power supplies, the wireless trend.

We actually had a decent amount of snow last night. I may not be good with a snowboard like Jay, but I've got some mean skills on a toboggan ;) Anyway, here's the latest in our news feed. Twinhan DTV MagicBox and VisionDTV Mini Ter @ HEXUS.net "Between the two products you've seen here, Twinhan have covered all their bases for anybody wanting a straightforward device enabling them to view terrestrial digital television on their PC.

I just received a ASUS A7N8X-X, and after looking around in the bios, it has some pretty decent features. After building a few systems using variants of the A7N8X, I've come to really like the brand. The NF7 series from ABit is also one of my top choices for Athlon XP systems. I'm going to miss the times I've spent working with Athlon XP systems, but once I get my Athlon 64, I'm sure all that will change :) AVerMedia AVerTV USB 2.0 Plus @ HEXUS.net "Almost everything about the device is easy to use and set-up, which generally speaking makes it a joy to use. My biggest concern prior to testing the device was that such a small component would struggle to provide a good quality picture and... Read more...
Well the weekend is finally here, so I'm doing a post now cause I don't think I'll be around tonight. It's been raining out all day, so I hope the roads don't turn to ice tonight... nothing like driving home late at night on roads made of ice. On with the news... eVGA e-GeForce 6600 GT 128 MB DDR3 PCI-E Video Card w/ HDTV Support @ 3dGameMan "This particular product comes standard with 128MB of DDR3, 2ns memory.

Good morning all!  Man it's been odd listening to the other guys talking about snow and cold weather.  Moving to NC last April, Winter now has a new definition to me.  What used to be cold and snowy is now more sunny and warm.  Heck, the last few days were in the 70s.  A part of me misses the snow, but the other part really likes wearing shorts in December :)  Anyhow, you're here for news, not a weather report, so let's start things off... Ultra 500W Titanium ATX PSU @ Viper Lair: "The Ultra 500W Titanium ATX Power Supply may not have a modular cabling system, or flashy fans or windows, or even sleeved cabling for the most part, but it does have an excellent...

Well I didn't wake up to snow like Jay, but there's a nice coating of it now. I'm stuck in the house until the plows can clear things up, but it's not so bad since I picked up Metroid Prime 2 yesterday... for anyone who hasn't played it but likes Metroid... buy it! Seriously, this game is awesome! I do have to pull myself away from it sometimes, like now... so let's get on with the news so I can get back to my game ;) LTB USB True 5.1 Surround Sound Headphone Review @ 3DX "While this headset may not be the cheapest on the market, if you are a serious gamer price may not be a huge consideration. For positional awareness in gaming the LTB USB-M headset just flat out rocks. I play alot of Call... Read more...
G'day all, welcome back to Hot Hardware.  Well, I think winter is officially here in the Great White North.  Awaking to a surprisingly heavy dump of snow, I had to actually clean the car off before I headed into work.  Maybe I should clean the garage enough so I could actually park it in there?! ;) Here is your AM shot of news...  Spire CoolForce II CF202-NBL Graphics Card Cooler Review @ Madshrimps "Spire´s CoolForce II is made to fit any card in the Geforce 4 Ti series and includes everything necessary to switch from the current "stock" cooling to the brand spanking new one and squeeze out a bit of extra performance at the same time."  Ultra 400W Dual LED...

Good afternoon friends, welcome back to HotHardware.  With my ISP having some "technical issues," I have been stuck on dial-up access for the past two days.  I tell you, there is nothing like going from a 5MB connection to the lighting quick speed of 56K ;)  Here is your news...  Thermaltake TrueLight Memory Heat Spreader @ A True Review "Our computers have become one big show and tell. With the advent of acrylic cases and case windows, visually what is on the inside has become just as important as what is on the outside. Moreover, what is on the inside does not sit there in hopes that we look; it reaches out and grabs our attention. How you ask? By lighting... Read more...
