Noiseblocker PC Case Noise Dampening Kit
Modern enthusiast PCs are loud and sometimes it seems that there is no getting away from it. The high pitched drone of a heavy duty fan cooling a high performance heatsink is not cool as it assaults the ears. PCs can still be audible even with near silent fans. Full tilt loud fans can even push the purest gamer/enthusiast to the point of bleeding ears after a long gaming session. Frags become nags from the noise. Wouldn't it be nice to dampen that sound and take the edge off that sound of screaming fans? There has to be a better way!.

ASUS A7N8X Motherboard (German website)
ASUS war schon immer für gute Mainboards bekannt und hat sich immer weiter im Markt etabliert und ist nun einer der Führenden in der Branche. Die A7 – Reihe wurde immer weiter beschleunigt und verbessert – nicht zuletzt durch die Chipindustrie, die immer schnellere Chips baute, sondern auch durch ASUS selber, die den Boards immer wieder das I-Tüpfelchen aufsetzen. Sei es durch "tausende“ von Extras, massenhaft Zubehör oder durch eine super Leistung. Wir testeten aus diesem Grund das ASUS A7N8X mit nVidias brandneuen und superschnellen nForce2 Chipsatz. Wie sich das Board geschlagen hat, erfahrt ihr in diesem Test.

Being the first keyboard review at, you might as well come into this peripheral genre with a great product. This is one solid, well built keyboard packed with great features and industry leading technology. No wonder some Asian companies are trying to jump all over the hype and pumping out this type of keyboard. But, from what I have been told, Eluminx has patents pending on this technology in those particular Asian countries and that could potentially cause some problems. Should be an interesting couple of months ahead.

Cremax Bodyguard Icy Dock
Hard drive cooling is nothing new, and as hard drives get faster, more cooling is needed. But why not go a bit further and make it look nice, with some added features to go along with it? That's where Cremax comes into place with its latest hard drive cooling unit. It offers a few features not found on any other unit of its type. The BodyGuard Icy Dock--we know the name is a bit odd--provides three thermal probes, audible warning, and much more. . . . The LCD panel has a very nice appeal. Three buttons that give you control of set, Up and Down features for certain functions within the LCD menu--such as temperature controls.
