Pctoys Neonmaxx accent paint
Today for review we have pcToys Neon Maxx black light accent paint- color red. Sounds like some cool stuff. Today’s victims will be my faithful Vantec Stealth fan and my precious LAN card. Supposedly this stuff is not at all visible under normal light, and only visible under UV light. This fan is supposedly also clear, like water. Hmmmm, let's see then.

Logitech MX700
The Logitech MX700 just raised the bar of expectation on precision and control. With its powerful MX™ optical engine, the MX700 instantly responds to even your fastest movements. The rechargeable Fast RF cordless technology gives the responsiveness of a corded connection, but without the cord. Our two Cruise Control™ buttons provide continuous scrolling through long documents or websites. And the rapid charge base station acts as a receiver and a charger in one

EPoX 8RDA+ Review Update - AGP issue solved!
The problems I had with AGP benchmarks locking up at 200MHz FSB turned out to be a Northbridge heat problem. The water cooling on the stripped down 8RDA version really helped out, but I still had problems with conventional cooling on the 8RDA+. In the end, I abandoned the factory Northbridge cooler all together and went with an aftermarket NB cooler from PCToys called the NB MAXX. The PCToys NB MAXX saved the day and turned the unfriendly EPoX 8RDA+ into an Overclocker's best friend. However, the 8RDA series still has issues right out of the box, therefore I still stand by my rating of a "7".
