Lian Li PC-05 Aluminum Case Review
The Lian Li PC-05 Aluminum Case is the very first budget style case from Lian Li. This case has four 5.24", three 3.5" and three 3.5" hidden drive bays and three fans. There are two fans with a filter at the front and one at the back to allow good air flow. While this case has all the essentials it doesn't have a removable motherboard tray but it's well priced and has great build quality. Watch the Video to find out more..

Bytecc Zippy EL Keyboard
What do you get when you put together lights and a slim keyboard? Something really screwed up and sloppy. Thankfully, Bytecc has their EL lighted keyboards that take the guess work out of keyboard light mods!

Reference NV31 based GeForce FX 5600 Ultra
Last month NVIDIA announced the rest of the DirextX9 capable, GeForce FX range. In addition to GeForce FX 5800 (NV30) NVIDIA are adding 5600 (NV31) and 5200 (NV34) to the new GeForce FX line. Today Beyond3D takes a reference NV31 based GeForce FX 5600 Ultra for a spin to see what its made of.

“In comparison to the Ti4200, NV31's single texturing fill-rate is just a little higher which is as we'd expect, albeit possibly to a greater degree. With twice the texture sampling abilities per pipeline, though, Ti4200's multi-texturing rate is higher than NV31's, whose clock speed advantage isn't able to make up for the deficit in texturing fill-rate.”

X-Trac Zoom Mouse Pad Review
Enter the third X-Trac mouse pad I have looked at from PCXMods. While I really liked the two previously, this particular one may really appeal to some of you. Those who like their mouse pads thin. This is definitely that. Thin as a credit card, yes, even thinner than a CD, this thin optical mouse pad measuring 8 1/2" x 11" should be ample size for anyone. Continue on, as this one will be short, but full of nice pictures to look at.
