ABIT IT7-MAX2 V2.0 Review
OCAddiction reviews ABIT's flagship Pentium 4 Motherboard, the IT7-MAX2 V2.0. Based on the 845PE chipset, this motherboard boasts quite a few features you won't find in many others. If you've been looking for a top notch motherboard that's a cut above the rest, you'll definitely want to checkout their review. Here's a snip.

"Building a system with a well laid out motherboard can be a real joy if it is done smartly and ABIT doesn't disappoint. The ATX connector is in a great spot up at the top and out of the way. Floppy and IDE's are easy to get to and memory slots have enough room on either side to make it easier to install and pull memory out. Also, you'll notice a change from the original IT7 MAX is that now the CMOS battery now lays flat on the board instead of sticking straight up. While theoretically the straight up position was great for changing batteries etc. It made an easy target for getting bent or broken off. "

If you’ve just crawled out from under a rock and are asking the question “64-bit what?” mainstream 64-bit processors are just a short walk down the sandy silicon beach but what will it mean to you and I? Are 64-bit processors what we need or what we would want?

Swiftech MCW50-T Review
Today at ClubOC, we have another Swiftech product, the MCW50-T. The "T" represents a thermoelectric cooling module that gives the MCW50 the potential to put your video card well into the sub-zero temperatures, but I'm sure the number one question will be "Is this product for me?". Most of those reading this review will hopefully know enough about system cooling, and be able to acknowledge that water is better than air. What else besides phase change will give me better performance than what exists among mainstream cooling accessories? Hopefully you can answer that question for yourself as we dive into what makes the MCW50-T work.

iRock! 530 Portable MP3 Player Review
If you're a person on the go who loves your MP3s, you'll need a MP3 player. The lightweight iRock comes with 128MB of built-in memory, and produces very good sound.

"The only drawbacks of this unit have to do with the display. First of all, there isn't a back light, which doesn't really matter all that much, since given the size, you can't see the name of the song you are playing anyway. Since the unit doesn't hold too much music, it isn't really hard to find the song you are looking for."
