VLSystem Multi Power Port review
Having just ordered Papst fans with 3pin tails for my new Antec case, I was in dire need of a fan bus. My motherboard only has two 3pin headers and one is for the CPU fan. So, the alternative was a bunch of ugly 3pin to Molex adapters. I could have just ordered the fans with Molex tails, but that's another story. When the fans arrived I used a bunch of adapters, which soon got very ugly and cluttered up my case. Thanks to VLSystem's new MPP Plus, a solution presented itself

Extreme PC 3500 Roundup
The current ram market is bloated with a plethora of different products and choices. However, more and more products are being produced and aimed at the enthusiast crowd: the overclockers. With this in mind, many companies have set out to create “The Ultimate Overclocking Ram”. Specifically, the P4 powered 845PE chipset has had an incredible thirst for memory speed and with the recently released Canterwood, memory bandwidth is essential. Nforce2 motherboards have also displayed a substantial need for memory speed. Today we have 4 pairs of PC3500 from a slew of top manufacturers. Included in this roundup will be sticks from (alphabetical order) Corsair, Geil, Kingston, and Mushkin

Aero 7 from Coolermaster
Coolermaster is on to something here. Even though the fan does not perfectly center the air, judging by my testing it does so enough to still make it more effective than standard fans. The skived heatsink is all one piece, adding to the performance. But the fan, oh yes the Aero 7's fan. It is a major step in the right direction! It is the difference maker here.

EasyDisk 128MB USB Drive Review
The drive itself is very small and compact. It sports a plain black color and uses rubber as its material of choice. This can be a bad thing because it picks up dust, etc. The advantage of rubber is the grip it gives you. At the side of the unit, we have a switch. This switch is a write-protection feature such as floppies has. If you do not want people saving things to your drive, just simply switch it on.
