Plextor's PX-504A DVD Recorder
The Plextor PX-504A lived up to it's hype. It's a fast, reliable drive worthy of Plextor's already solid reputation. I made no coasters!

Eumax CPU Cooler
To put my computer under load, I used a free program called Hot CPU Tester Pro 3. It runs a bunch of benchmark tests at the same time over six hours. I felt that six hours was overkill to test the CPU coolers for this type of use. So I just ran the tests for five minutes.

FireWire 3-port PCI ATTO Review
