ABIT SR7-8X Motherboard Review
Today, I’m going to look at one such product. In my initial research, the ABIT SR7-8X, based on the SiS-648 chipset, got me more excited than I’ve been about a product in a long time. Offering such features as full support for a 133MHz Front Side Bus, PC2700 memory (not to mention unofficial support for PC3200 memory), ATA-133, USB 2.0, and AGP-8X, this board’s résumé started off impressive enough, but when I heard of the overclocking features that are also thrown into the mix… well… let’s just say, it’s a good thing that the UPS man is quick on his feet, or he’d have found himself on the wrong end of a flying tackle. So, what do you think? Is this a product that disappoints? Or, is my main box getting ready to have its guts yanked out? Read on and see…

Review : Thermaltake Fan Speed RPM Switch
In their ever-expanding line-up of thermal solution products is the Thermaltake Fan Speed H.M.L RPM Setting Cable, P/N: A1268. Although not Thermaltake's most advanced offering, its simplicity may be its strongest selling point, and could provide a quick fix for people looking to control a fan's speed without buying/building a full-blown fan bus.

Review : CoolerMaster Aluminum & Copper RAMsinks
Only a year ago RAMsinks first began to make a significant show in the computer market. Before this time, it was unheard of to apply any type of cooling on RAM, whether it be system RAM or video card RAM. Now it is a proven fact that your RAM chips do indeed get hot and need special cooling attention as well. While most system RAM sticks and video card RAM chips can get by without cooling, it is widely known among overclockers that applying cooling to these specific areas of your system will yield higher overclocks

Review : Antec hard drive cooling system
Anyway, in a roundabout way that brings me to the point of this whole review. Hard drives are dull, unexciting pieces of kit that just crack on and do their job - until that is they give up the ghost on you, when they immediately become a major pain in the neck. And so anything that can help protect them has to be a GOOD thing! So we come to the hard-drive cooling system which Antec have sent us to review. Most cases now have the facility to mount cooling fans near your hard-drive housings, but this set-up goes a lot further than that; let's start with some specs...
