FrozenCPU's 3.5" BayBus Review
While the fans used makes a difference, this fan bus really kicks ass in terms of its desired functions. The adjustable low speed voltage alone makes it worth buying if you have a case of Tornados. FrozenCPU has certainly done an outstanding job with their latest and greatest in case quieting devices. The only con was the red/black labeling that could confuse the average, non-computer-literate user, but any modder should know enough about his box to overcome this. At $24, it would make an inexpensive but very nice addition to any modded case.

MSI K7N2 NForce2 Motherboard
Nvidia is best known for their video technologies, but the graphics giant has lately set their sights on core chipsets for mainboards. Thus was born the Nforce chipset. The original Nforce chipset got off to a delayed and shaky start. And the much anticipated Nforce 2 was also delayed - we were already reporting about the Nforce 2 features back in mid-2002.

The K7N2 (MS-6570) uses the Nforce 2 SPP (System Platform Processor) North bridge, and the MCP2 South Bridge. There is NO integrated graphics core in our test sample.

Senfu Tech Station Review
Let's face it - all the tech review websites out there go through a ton of motherboards every year and one of the common problems for many of us is finding a good way to set up a test environment for the PC components. Some of us install boards into full fledged cases while others lay the boards out on their tables. In the hopes to have a somewhat lab like environment, I opted for an open platform design After looking around the net I decided to check out the Senfu Tech Station. Let's be truthful here - one can always go to a "Bed, Bath and Beyond" or a "Home Depot" and get a simple small rack to perform the same function. Let's see if the Senfu Tech Station offers anything compelling that would warrant one to buy this over a kitchen rack

BIOS Optimization Guide
"I've been receiving many questions regarding new BIOS options as well as those that have not yet been covered by the BIOS Optimization Guide. So far, I've been answering them one by one.

But this is really quite time consuming. So I suggest that you post under this topic, all the BIOS options that are available in your BIOS but not yet covered in the BIOS Optimization Guide. It would be better if you could also include any additional information on it (as written in the manual)."
