Vantec Power Supply Review
Very seldom do I get a product that scores a prefect 10. The Vantec Stealth power supply series has all the power the any computer builder and modder would want. Vantec makes a 420 watt to 520 watt PSU, and its server ready, ROCK STABLE. Read on and find out why I think this is one of the best power supplies on the market!

D-Link AirPlus Enhanced 2.4GHz (802.11b) Wireless Products Review
So, today, I'll be looking at four of D-Link's products from their AirPlus line of wireless products: The DI-614+ Wireless Router w/ 4-port switch, the DWL-900AP+ Repeating Access Point, the DWL-520+ PCI adapter and the DWL-650+ CardBus adapter. These products will support up to a 22Mbps data rate between one another, while still allowing backwards compatibility with older 802.11b devices, making them an excellent option for users looking to upgrade their wireless network. They also promise to have the same ease-of-use as other D-Link products, and all of these features make these products a seemingly viable option.

Extreme Alterations 12" UV Cold Cathodes and 80mm UV Fans Review
Installing everything was simple. The first step was to remove the fan clips and plug the fans into them. After replacing them, I quickly plugged in the molex power cords and they were ready to go. Next I had to install the cold cathodes. I decided I wanted to run both bulbs off of one inverter to save space. To do this, I first mounted the inverter in the middle of the case. Then, I mounted one cold cathode in the top of my case and one in the bottom. I used the zip ties and stick clips, and the whole process took a few seconds. With everything mounted, I opened up the inverter case. There are two plugs for the cold cathodes, so I plugged in both of them. After closing the box back up, I plugged in the inverter's molex power plug. The last step was to install the switch. Lucky for me, I just happened to have a hole already drilled in the back of my case! I popped the plug into place and I was ready to go!
