Shootout : 4 LED Fans
Fans... one of my favorite things... but what can you say about them? Fans blow! Fans are pretty! Fan reviews seem redundant. I must admit though they are one of the few things in a box that provide aesthetic and utilitarian function and gee golly I like 'em. They're simple to install and can really change the look of your box. Fans have also drastically improved in look while not increasing dramatically in cost and therefore are one of the cheapest ways to add a little flash to your box..

Review : Asus ATV8X socket A KT400 DDR400
The Asus A7V8X represents the bleeding edge of AMD Athlon motherboard technology.
First and foremost, it is based on the VIA KT400 chipset. That means it comes with built-in support for 8X AGP, Serial ATA150, ATA133, and DDR400 memory -- a long leap up from the KT400's predecessor, the KT333.
To differentiate itself from competing KT400 boards, the A7V8X is also sold with an optional 100Base-T network controller, but that's not all. The A7V8X also comes with several integrated Asus technologies, such as Asus C.O.P, Q-Fan, MyLogo2, and more.
And just to be thorough, Asus also keeps both a six-channel sound-card, and a RAID controller available as options.

RED So-Trick Kit Review
This Trick Kit adds a few nice features to any case. First, rounded cables are very normal now, not only because they look better, but they block less airflow. The aluminum frame fan looked very good, and helped lower the case temperature. The ThermalTake Memory Cooling Kit will help cool your hot ram and add security knowing it will not overheat. And last but not least, the Blue Orb will help cool your hot video card or chipset. This kit is an all-in-one mod kit, you wont have to go out and buy everything separate and pay high prices, instead you can buy everything to get you started in one easy to use kit. I would recommend this kit to anyone who is into case modding and cooling.

Skyhawk Jupiter Case Review
Today we're taking a look at the new Jupiter case from Skyhawk. With so many cases on the market right now with lights, windows and other accessories, it is hard to choose the right one. Not only would you need something to catch the eye of the consumer, you also have to make it useful. What's the point of a feature if it does not benefit the user? Let's see what this Jupiter case can do for us...
