Prometeia phasechange cooling unit
The process used to make today's CPUs is known as CMOS, Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor CMOS technology. One of the characteristics of semiconductors made with this process is that they become more efficient as we lower their operating temperature. For example at -120C the efficiency of a CMOS CPU actually doubles -- at least in theory.

This also applies to devices cooled less aggressively, so cooling a CPU to -20C will give us an increase by about 20%. Now, 20% may not get you overly impressed, but supercooling the processor in addition to an increased supply voltage will get you a substantial increase in efficiency

GigaByte GA7VAXP Ultra Motherboard Review
This is one very impressive board. It has everything you could ask for from USB and IEEE1394 to FSB333 and stylish looks. It comes with a great bundle of accessories and drivers/utilities as well as Norton Antivirus (which I forgot to mention). The board overclocks very well but is quite limited when it comes to overclocking settings like CPU Frequency and Voltage. The manuals included (Mobo, RAID, SATA) cover everything you need to know, literally, with the exception of quite a few spelling errors. The layout of the board is neat and well thought out. Installation is easy and the great layout yields little airflow blockage and tidy, hidden cables

Gigabyte GA-SINXP1394 Motherboard
Now we've already seen how much greater performance Intel's 7205 chipset can leverage with Dual Channel mode, compared to the AMD/Nvidia Nforce2 platform, in terms of percentage boost in performance, and conventional wisdom would suggest that higher speed memory in Dual Channel mode would yield even more impressive results. Afterall, those fancy memory speed ratings are all about theoretical bandwidth, and if you double the bandwidth of PC2100 memory for 4.2GB/sec bandwidth on the GNB and get PC1066 RDRAM-like performance, what would happen on an Intel platform Dual Channel board capable of using PC3200 memory?
