12/30/04 FIC's solution based on ATI's RS350 chipset @ Viper Lair

"The P4M-RS350 itself is a complete package that gives you the ability to upgrade the graphics when you have the money to do so. It carries competent performance and enough onboard solutions that voids the fact there is only 3 PCI slots available."

12/30/04 Vantec NexStar 2, 3.5" IDE hard drive mobile enclosure @ A1

" We have to say a clean, neat, tidy and stylish mobile IDE hard drive enclosure and very lightweight is the Vantec NexStar 2 which would not look out of place on any desk. And as the Vantec NexStar 2 is made of plastic there is no chance of it damaging your desk or whatever you use to transport it in."

12/29/04 OCLabs B3 PlexyBlock Review @ PCmoddingmy

"My first impression with this OCLabs B3 PlexyBlock is that it is very small when compared with other water cooling water blocks out in the market. This B3 PlexyBlock sized only at 50 x 50 x 25mm, without the barbs. It is is just slightly bigger than the AMD64 processor. The whole block looks like chrome while the lid was made of acrylic. This has got the be the shinniest looking water block in the streets! Besides the PlexyBlock, OCLabs also has Monoblock for their water block products, but the MonoBlock doesn't come with the acrylic lid. You might want to get this kind of water block for your next modding project, wouldn't you?"

12/28/04 DG834GT Review @ TekBunker

“Ok, sounds good. Though first a sad story, well kind of. I had my trusty DG824M since July 2003, to replace my DG814. I was planning to upgrade any week now, but then, for no reason, the router died. Just like that. Luckily, with a 3 year warranty, I feel a little better, and have registered and emailed netgear about this issue. I bought the latest DG834GT, because I love the way netgear routers look. By far the best looking, most boring part of a PC. Well done netgear for this. This review is not a big tech review of how well the router does something fancy, but a mini review, to show what u get, does it work, and is it good. Nothing more.”

12/27/04 ATake Dual Colour UV LED Fan @ DreamWare Computers

"Computer lighting has really evolved as it has become more popular. There's regular cathodes, UV, LED light strips, "bubble" light strips, LED fans, cathode lit fans, and on and on. Today we're taking a look at a Dual Colour UV LED Fan made by ATake. The unusual thing about this fan is that the blades are lit one colour and the body of the fan is lit another colour! Very neat effect."

     "2004 seems to have flow past rather quick and we are here again doing our choosing & buying a graphics card.

12/17/04 Asus AX800Pro/TVD @ Extensive Mods

"With the arrival of the new era of FPS pumping, quality enhancing, performance boosting video cards came the ASUS AX800Pro/TVD. Since the release of the ATI R420, and Nvidia 6800 GPU's, there has been rivalry between the two company's to produce the fastest graphics card on the market. With features such as ATI's Smoothvision HD, Smartshader HD, Videoshader D, Hyper Z HD, and 3Dc, ATI is continuing to push the bounds of graphics card technology in the 21st century! Read the review to find out more!"

12/16/04 Vantec 11-in-1 mobile memory card reader

@ A1

" Maybe it is just us but this Vantec 11-in-1 mobile memory card reader seems to us to be a very handy little device for just about everybody. All it needs is a thin cloth bag to protect it a little. But that is being fussy."

12/16/04 Front X-tension @ Voodooreviews

12/16/04 Thermaltake Tsunami Dream USB keyboard & mouse 

@ A1

" We have to say that it is for the writer a delight using the keys on this Thermaltake Tsunami Dream keyboard compared to the expensive cordless one he normally uses. Their touch when tying is both soft, firm and positive. The keyboard is steady and stiff compared to the one he normally uses which is flexible and was expensive."

12/1/04 Corsair PC3200 DDR400 Value DDR memory kit @ A1

Thermaltake Silent 775 Intel Pentium 4 LGA775 heatsink

"You can see from our graph the Thermaltake Silent 775 gives excellent cooling performance and continues to hold its position as the heat is increased even up to our 170 watts of heat.

11/28/04 DIY Water Cooling Kit @ DreamWare Computers

"When you make the switch to water cooling you're going to ask yourself this question: do I want to buy a kit from a company or build a (DIY) Do It Yourself kit? Not only to DIY kits give you the chance to hand pick each part you want, but later on new components can be added to the loop and parts can be upgraded easily."

11/25/04 EverCool WC-301 Mini Universal AMD & Intel water cooled heatsink system @ A1

" So the beauty of this EverCool WC-301 Mini water cooled system is that it is a very neat, stylish and compact unit which does not take up any room as it is so small and yet is more than capable of having its cooling performance increased by the simple addition of radiators being fitted inside your computer case."

11/24/04Danger Den 12V-D4 Pump Review @ DreamWare Computers

"The pump is a very important choice in buying watercooling parts. Make the wrong choice and you may be stuck with a poor performing, noisy and maybe leaky pump, trust me! If you make the right choice, the Danger Den DD12V-D4, then you will have a high performing and silent solution."

Then came the Pocket PC which improved upon Palms design, then with Apples iPOD you can now carry literally all the music you own in the palm of your hand. Welcome to the newest introduction into Smallsville, your home theater!"

11/22/04 ThermalTake Hardcano 12 @

Thermaltake’s latest and greatest on the system monitoring front is the Hardcano 12. It combines the sleek look of a car stereo deck with the powerful control of a Digital Doc system to create a highly useful and undeniably attractive system monitoring unit...This product has been such a great seller lately that even resellers are on backorder as ThermalTake is unable to create them fast enough to meet the customer demand...
