Vantec Fan controller
Well this is my first review on a Vantec product and I'm excited! We are going to look at their new fan controler. This product seems to be something really well made and is great for overclockers that want a quiet computer sometimes. But it's also made for people that just want to be able to control their fans in the computer. So I hope you enjoy this and get something out of the review

Albatron GeForce 4 Ti4800-8x Medusa
Thanks to Albatron, we have been given the opportunity to look at something completely new, the GeForce 4 Ti4800SE Medusa. No, this is not an FX card, but it does appear to be an "enhanced" version of the GeForce 4 Ti4400 with 8x AGP support. Even if this card is nearly the same as the Ti4400, experience tells us that whenever a company has another go at a video card, there are more enhancements than what you can see on paper. An updated version of anything is always more stable and usually delivers much better performance.

Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro 2
The CD that comes with it has software on it that can't be downloaded anywhere (I looked for several hours to find it!). This software allows you to program the different functions for each button, you can even program macros to be performed on the press of a button.

Kingston 512MB PC2700
Three weeks ago we took a look at Crucial UKs PC2700 512MB module; today we take a gander at the Kingston Technology PC2700 512MB module. More suited to an all round use but with a high overclocking potential, this stick is sure to please any quality advocate.

fUnc sUrface 1030 review
Two mousing surfaces (and a mouse clip!) in one product, and even comes in a reusable metal box - with your choice of textured or glass-smooth surfaces and the ability to use it in portrait or landscape setup; everything you need for a fully customizable game or work mousing experience is at your fingertips. This is it, folks - the best mousing surface around. Period.
