6 Fan Controller Roundup Part II
The “Best Bang For the Buck” award would have the be a TIE between Vantec’s Four Fan Rheobus and FrozenCPU’s 3.5” baybus. Both controllers were able to withstand the demands of the 92mm Vantec Tornado’s without skipping a beat, and are definitely the least expensive controllers in this roundup. If you are looking for a 5.25” controller to fill one of those spaces next to a Cd-Rom, I would highly recommend Vantec’s Four Fan Rheobus. However, If you are looking for a more convenient, more compact look and wish to fill one of those useless floppy faceplate’s, head on over to and check those out as well.

Abit Siluro GF4 Ti4200 OTES 64 MB video card
Every hobby needs its followers who do just a little bit more, and go that extra mile to stand out among their fellow enthusiasts as if to say “I laid the sp4nk down on j00 f00lz.” For car enthusiasts, it’s the hot rodders and their modern equivalent, the ricers. For bikers, it’s the choppers and customizers. For us technophiles, we have the overclockers: those who veraciously seek out higher clock speeds, smoother graphics, and squeeze every possible hertz out of modern technology. It’s an art that requires a certain finesse with modern electronics, a bit of money (hey, we’ve all nuked a chip or two in our day when we’ve gotten too greedy), and most of all, a l33t cooling system. Even though the art of overclocking has become more accessible over the years, it has yet to find its way into the rig of the average computer user, whether due to far, ignorance, or the fact that you’re still gaming on your mama’s box. Abit looks to change all that with their new Outside Thermal Exhaust System (OTES) line of GeForce 4 cards, which come straight from Abit’s factory to your box pre-overclocked.

AMD Athlon XP 3000+
Considering the AMD Athlon XP 3000+ Barton at only 2.16GHz does exceedingly well up against the Intel Pentium 4 running at a whopping 2.8GHz. In some cases beating it. Makes you wonder how well the AMD Athlon XP Barton core at 2.8GHz would do. How high would the graph be!
