Computers are no longer just for word processing, playing games or surfing the web. They are now slowly but surely becoming the main anchor of the entertainment center; with many people ripping their favorite CDs and converting home movies into digital files, connecting the computer to a television or audio receiver is becoming more and more popular. Cooler Master, noticing this trend has brought their intelligent design, high quality craftsmanship and innovative thinking to a case that will make anyone who’s considering, what I would call an Entertainment PC very happy. Enter the Cooler Master ATC-610-GX1.
While the original X-Dream allowed users to mount the rheostat in a
pre-drilled PCI plate, the Special Edition unit gives users a second
choice. Included with the kit is a 3.5" drive bay cover which has been
pre-drilled to allow for the rheostat's installation on the front panel of
the case. The Cooler Master logo is printed on one side of the cover, with
a simple speed setting indicator surrounding the knob after installation.
I much prefer the new floppy drive bay mounting, as it makes the fan
controller much more easily accessible, and adds an extra piece of eye
candy to the front of the case.
For features and extras the Chaintech 7NJS Socket A NFORCE2 Zenith is practically untouchable! Chaintech went all out when it came to extras inside the box. There is no other motherboard bundle on the market today that can match it. Total up the extras separately and the 7NJS provides more value. The price tag weighs in more than the competition but the competition doesn't pack anywhere near as much into the box. The 7NJS is not as common a platform in overclocking circles but could it take a run at the overclocking crown? This results in one of our most extensive reviews to date. Every feature will be brought under the microscope.
When we first looked at the PCXmods X-Trac Pro HS we were awed on how it preformed. Seriously. It was a mouse pad that glided like crazy and was very affordable. PCXmods has introduced the new PCXmods Eels. It’s essentially a mouse skate like Teflon tape that was supplied with the Steelpad. Mouse skates are meant to improve gliding and noise problems associated with mice. Even though the PCXmods X-Trac Pro HS preformed really well, we will see if the Eels will make any difference
Tonite we are again taking a look at a USB drive, and this time Msystems have been so kind and sent us a product to review.
It's a nice looking product which I think will perform good and for that test we are going to use Sisoft Sandra. And we are also going
to see how small it is.
