Antec TruePower 430W Power Supply Review
Antec is a company that is now known by enthusiasts everywhere for making high-quality inexpensive products. Antec's cases and power supplies are their best known products, and for good reason. Regular power supplies have two voltage rails: a 12v rail and a 5/3.3v rail. In their TruePower power supplies, Antec decided to split the 5/3.3v rail into two rails. By doing so, it is possible to use all of the current from the power supply. So if a computer has many PCI cards, which run off of the 5v line, the CPU, which runs off of the 3.3v line can have all the power it wants. This is especially useful for overclockers, because overclocked CPU's require more power than CPU's running at stock speed

Appliqué Review
Appliques can turn a plain looking window into something closer resembling art. With all the color choices offered they are no longer limited to decorating windows and can be added to any bare area of your case for a truly unique look. Today we take a look at two of the more detailed design offerings from The Shattered Web to get a better feel for the quality of their product.
