It seems that Sky Hawk has released more new aluminum cases than all other manufactures put together, in the last six months. Noted more for their economy pricing and futuristic design, most of their offerings have tended to be more appealing to the general computing public, rather than the high-end overclocker/power-user.
Just a quick send out to let everyone know we have picked the winners of our case badge contest and have them up for viewing. We know this may not necessarily warrant a full blown news post but a mention would be appreciated if appropriate. Have a great weekend everyone!
World Exclusive: Maxtor Serial ATA DiamondMax Plus 9 Review
Without a doubt Serial ATA has become one of the most exciting developments in the computer industry. Allowing for blazing fast transfer speeds and hot swapability normally found in enterprise level drives, Serial ATA hard drives have become one of the hottest commodities around. In a World-Exclusive review Envy News takes a look at the drive that has just taken the Serial ATA speed crown, Maxtor's DiamondMax Plus 9 Serial ATA 160GB drive. Here's a clip from the review:
"If you need a new hard drive or you’re wanting to experience Serial ATA first hand, then this is the drive to get at this point. With 8mb of cache, large 80GB platters, and performance that is competitive with RAID_0 systems, this drive is the best-performing Serial ATA drive available and a must-have for anyone in need of blistering performance and massive storage. If this drive is an indication of what Serial ATA is capable of offering, then we’re in for a very wild ride as the standard takes off."
It was bound to happen sooner or later...ClubOC's first "official" EPoX motherboard review! This may be my first EPoX review, but this is not the first EPoX motherboard I've owned. In fact, I've been using EPoX motherboards off and on since the days of the AMD K6 and K6-2 processors. EPoX's motherboards have come a long way over the years, but one thing has remained constant; EPoX's award winning quality. Will the 8RDA+ carry on the EPoX tradition of quality, or will it get dog piled by the other nForce2 boards on the market?
