Spire 5R265B1H3T SkiveStream CPU Cooler Review
The cooler has fourty fins carved out of an aluminum base. A channel has been machine down the center to facilitate the retention clip. As the name suggests, the 5R265B1H3T SkiveStream heatsink was created using the Skiving process. The process involves cutting the fins out of the base, ensuring there is no division between the base and fin, where efficiency maybe lost in the bonding material. The added benefit from this manufacturing process is that one side of each fin is very course, increasing the surface area for forced convection cooling

Epox 8RDA+ nForce 2 Motherboard
Although they are no strangers to motherboards, the 8RDA+ marks the first time Epox have worked with nVidia. With the nForce2 getting a lot of good press, we take a look at Epox's nForce2 solution, and determine if this motherboard is worth consideration.

"A 230FSB was pretty much a piece of cake, using an 8.0 mulitplier. I tried 8.5 but the system would not post. I also tried 8 x 231, but the system, although posting at 8 x 231, would not boot into Windows. We did manage a POST at 5 x 242, but it never got into Windows either. The fact that it at least POSTed at 242FSB is a bit of an encouragement as the upcoming AMD CPUs will likely ride the 400FSB bus, so you'll still have some OC headroom when the new chips arrive."

Antec LANboy
Two optional fans can be installed, the one in the back should be mounted with screws, but the one in front can be "popped" in. The LANboy has small holes in front that could give it some airflow from the front, but I doubt the fact if the fan will get enough air to built up a nice airflow. If you want to install a fan in the window you'll have to start drilling or cutting.
