Don't forget to give our Case Gallery a visit Zalman CNPS3100-Plus Review
Generally, CPU nowadays generates bigger and faster cycle-speed. From MHz to GHz, they have one thing in common, that is they produced a great amount of heat! Heatsink Companies correspond to this issue and are striving to produce a heatsink that could provide an adequate cooling while maintain the noise level as low as possible.
Depending on what kind of computer system you are building, there are lots of heatsinks out there. We are going to look again at a product from Dynatron. Make no mistake this is not your overclockers heat sink. I put it up against the Thermalright SK-7 and this heatsink put up some decent numbers as far as tempatures go. Read this article and find out what niche this product will fit into
Molex has a variety of the 37256-00x series of heat sinks. The 37256-005 we received classifies as the high performing heat sink with a more powerful fan. Basically, the last three digits "00x" comes with a different fan equipped--the lower the number, the less powerful and quieter the fan. The heat sink is made of a copper base with aluminum fins enclosed in an aluminum shroud.
Western Digital 80GB Caviar Special Edition Hard Drive Review
Coming from meager beginnings something like this drive amazed me. I had underestimated the importance of the hard drive in my system. The benchmarks speak for themselves, this drive kicks my old ones ass. It more than doubles the read speed and has a considerable lead in random access time. Not only was there a difference in benchmarks, but there was also a noticeable difference in performance in everyday activities. I was able to notice that all programs were taking no time at all to load, especially when I was used to them taking a few seconds to finish. I also saw a decrease in time needed to load during games. I played a few minutes of Morrowind and usually I had to wait about 5 seconds for the game to load the next block of terrain. Now it only takes a second or two then I am off playing again. There were also an increase in frames per second that I was also happy about. I would recommend this drive to anyone looking for a new drive and doesn't want to pay an arm or a leg
Many would say that LCD monitors are becoming the standard display type choice among end users. Only a few years ago, LCD monitors were only seen in the movies or integrated into laptops. Now it is common place to see an LCD monitor sitting on anyone's desktop. PC manufacturing giants Dell and Gateway seem to agree; both have been offering LCD monitors with their PC bundles for quite a while now. A huge price drop has allowed many PC users access to 15" and even 17" LCDs. The particular monitor we will be checking out today is one in the 17" flavor, the Solarism LM-1711 17" LCD Monitor.
