Matrix Orbital LK202-24-USB(MX2) LCD
LCDC comes with tons of useful plug-ins already built in. By going to the configuration screen you can enable and disable whatever plug-ins you would like. I personally loaded up the Motherboard Monitor plug-in, Winamp 2.X plug-in and Weather plug-in

Plextor PX-504A DVD+R/RW CD-R/RW
have mixed feelings when it comes to this drive. On one hand you have an amazing new technology that allows you backup your data on one or two DVD+R’s quickly. You also have the ability to create movies to play on a stand alone DVD player so you can watch your movies on the big screen. But, with the DVD+R/+RW standard there comes the pitfall of a more expensive media and a lower compatibility than the DVD-R/-RW standard. For this review I was able to purchase DVD+R media but was unable to easily find a DVD+RW disk to use.

VH Acrylic Case from SunbeamTech
Sunbeam Tech have been in the modding market for quite some time now and in that time, they've made a name for themselves with some very cool and innovative products. They started off by offering their very own line of CCFL tubes and kits and from there, slowly expanded their product line to include numerous other modding stuff, like LED Fans, Fan Grills, Etches, etc. Now their products are now sold all over the world and many of the online mod stores carries at least one of their product line. They've recently added a new product to their inventory in the form of their very own acrylic cases. I guess with all that modding kits they sell, they needed a case to put them all in! Anyway, they were kind enough to design a special edition acrylic case just for VH and that's what we're gonna take a look at today

The extreme computer MOD
This article features the step by step creation of an extreme computer mod, aka ECM, utilizing a MA-Audio HK 4000D series digital 4000 watt AMP. You have to see it to believe it.

"The reason I took on this project was because I wanted a custom computer that was unique. I started by looking for a suitable AMP shell. Why? Think about it. It is basically a giant heat sink. I wanted a thermally stable, stream lined, small case. Also, it must have a lot of eye-candy!"
