Firefly USBee and Translucent Flash Drive
The prices of USB flash drives are relatively low nowadays. For users who need a method of transferring files between computers besides using the internet or CD-Rs, flash drives are a very attractive and practical solution. They can also be "cool" to show off to computer illiterate coworkers who have never seen such things before. For whatever reason you think you might need one of these drives, they are cheap now and probably will continue to get cheaper to some degree as flash memory prices fall.

Swiftech MCW5000-A water block
The MCW5000 is able to fit AMD or Intel processors. Of course, upon ordering you will want to be sure that the block you order is for the type of processor you're running. The MCW5000-A uses the standard clamps that is found on most heatsinks, and actually grips all three prongs on the Ziff-Socket. By using these clamps, the MCW5000-A is able to distribute pressure evenly onto the CPU core. Swiftech's older model water blocks did not allow for as easy installation as the MCW5000-A. Instead, older models required motherboard de-installation and before installing of the four threaded mounts around the Ziff-Socket.

M-Audio Revolution 7.1 PC Surround SoundCard Review
This would be an IDEAL sound card in a HomeTheater PC, or hooked up to a receiver. The card will minimize colouring the output and offers an affordable entry into the surround sound market. Currently, there are no 7.1 speaker systems on the market, but if sales of this card go well I would suggest that a 7.1 system will be appearing soon.

Akasa – Emerald Green Mod
A few weeks ago we received a package from the good people of Akasa. In that package was a bunch of goodies; AK 824cu copper base coolers, cold cathode lights, LED 80mm fans and something that was totally new to me, TIM Clean a CPU and heatsink cleaner. I’m sure that to most of you these types of products are nothing new. So instead of showing you each product individually I thought I’d show them all in a case mode.
