rounded IDE cables Review
While it is true that a rounded cable will allow the airflow to "wrap around" the cable, instead of a regular ribbon cable blocking the airflow completely, folding regular ribbon cables allows you to shape them in ways that reduce airflow blockage from happening in the first place. While folding cables isn't that difficult, patience is required in order to make good folds that keep their shape and take up as little space as possible. Try that with a rounded cable

PCXMods X-Trac Pro HS Mouse Pad Review
PCXMods is a newcomer into the mouse pad scene. This one being geared for gamers, and even professional PC users. I'll be looking at the X-Trac Pro HS today. It is a large mouse pad geared towards optical mouse use, but as an added bonus of making a solid mouse pad, it works great with 'ball' mice. This will be one of the shorter reviews you will see here, but hey, nothing wrong with that right? Read on to see what I thought of this newcomer into the field of mouse pads...

Overclocking the Intel P4 2.4B/533
OCAddiction heads to the lab with the Intel P4 2.4B/533 CPU and really puts the juice to it to see what comes about. Running an Intel setup and wondering what your next CPU upgrade should be? Thinking about jumping from AMD over to the Intel bandwagon but not sure where to start? I suggest checking out OCA's latest, Overclocking the Intel P4 2.4B/533 CPU. Here's a quote from the review.

"Next, since we are shooting for a 600MHz overclock we'll more than likely need to raise the voltage a bit. Previously testing this CPU I know she needs the full 1.725v the ABIT can provide so I set it to that. I also set the memory back to 1:1 so we know there won't be any memory issues. Of course once you find your CPU's sweet spot in overclocking, you can then go back later and see what your memory is capable of. One additional item of note is the ABIT's capability of running 33MHz fixed for your PCI Bus Frequencies. This is an absolute MUST-Have option when overclocking, as it will keep all of your peripherals (sound card, NIC, etc.) in spec, otherwise providing a chance that one would fail and also hamper your overclocking experience. ABIT also has a Fixed 37MHz and 44MHz for you daring types wishing to run your PCI and AGP a bit higher than spec."
