Basic System Upgrade
MHW today has published a reader upgrade article. I am not sure how to describe this one hence the name Basic System Upgrade. In it he briefly touches on lapping, cable routing, thermal paste use, backups, he even throws in a couple tips on how to smooth the purchases over with the wife.

"There! I don’t have any shrink-wrap or wire wrapping, so the PSU wires were routed as best as possible and the unused wires tucked up at the top. I used the IDE and floppy cables that came with the motherboard so I could do “ribbon cable origami” instead of my old “cut up and electrical taped” cables. I was quite proud of myself in this, and it added an hour or so to the total install time. But I was done!"

Albatron PX845PEV-800
As the first website in Scandinavia we've taken a look at Albatrons new 800MHz FSB? mainboard - Albatron PX845PEV-800 - the 800 in the last bit of the name indicates that the board should support 200MHz on the FSB, either by overclocking or by using the upcoming P4 Cpu's... I would like to start with saying that it have been an pleasure to use this board for nearly a week. There havent been any problems at all. Everything has just worked like it should from day one. I have also experienced that the board is very stable, it have run at 3420MHz and PC3500 since i startet it the first time.

X-trac Zoom mousepad
Awhile back I had a chance to try out the Xtrac Pro mousepad and I gave it my recommendation and 5 out of 5. Well now it's time to look at the follower to that mousepad, it's called the Zoom and is for optical mice. It's credit card thin and has a special bottom so it will not move on the table. Well we are going to take a look at it now and stop talking

Two Times the Fun: 2 x 75CFM or not? @ Viper Lair
One question that I've had asked a couple of occasions is that if one monster fan cools a heatsink well, why not add two? In my opinion, I think it's a waste of time, and it'll end up adding needless noise, but I've decided to address it today regardless
