MicroTracker MousePad Review
Just when you thought they were dead, Central Trading Agency breathes new life into the oft-neglected cloth mousepad. Sure, cloth was all well and good back in the days when you were playing Number Munchers on your dad’s 286, but times change. Users got fed up with their mice’s balls becoming all dirty and unusable, and their cloth mousepads having more coffee stains than the shirt of that guy that works the graveyard shift at the Motel 6. As necessity is the mother of all invention, the optical mouse we know and love today was born, a solution to user-interface that lacked balls, so to speak. Gone were the days of clogged mice, dirty pads, and mistracks. Accompanying the mouse’s evolution was the next generation of mouse pads, which tended to be of the hardened plastic or glass variety. The mice are ball-less, all is right with the world…or is it?!"

Epox 8k5a2+ review
Epox's 8K series of motherboards have been awesome. I had a 8K3A+ it recently was replaced by the 8K5A2+ mobo! Does it overclock well? All I can say is this is one demon of a overclocker, coupled with all the features and bios settings, this board simply rocks! With a XP1600+ Agoia core I was able to reach XP2200 speeds, and there is more under the hood! If you feel the NEED FOR SPEED come take a look at this mobo and find out what a screamer it is! I feel the need for..........SPEED..............Yeah, baby, Yeah!

Arctic Cooling Copper Silent TC review
I really find this product very interesting because of how much thought Arctic Cooling put into it. Underneath the fan there is a red wire that connects to the bottom of the heat sink. This tells the fan how fast to move depending on the temperature of the heat sink

Taisol K7 heat pipe HSF review
My first impression was "Holy smoke! This thing is HUGE!" It measures about 90mm tall, 85mm in depth, and 125mm across the width (which includes the heat pipe tubing). I had my doubts that this thing would even FIT into my test computer.
