HardCoreMods Forum Opening
This isn't any news per say, but has opened it's forums. We're trying to drive traffic to them so they don't look so barren!
Opening at HardCoreMods

What if you could skip the whole cold cathode thing and not have to worry about making the right color choice? What if you could buy a light kit that would offer you almost any color you could imagine, it could be turned on with out having the power on to the computer and you could choose from a variety of timing and settings that would make the lights dance inside your case. If this all sounds too good to be true then let me introduce you to Mad-Lights.

ATi All-In-Wonder 9700 Pro
The flagship of the All-in-Wonder series finds its way into our labs. Featuring the Theater 200 and the R300, this could very well be the best all round video card available.

"Right now, ATi has no competition in this particular segment of the video card market. Usually, lack of competition means stagnant development. Luckily, this isn't the case, and each generation of the All-in-Wonder line continues to improve noticably."

Microtracker mousepad
Today we have a look at a different mousepad. I've never heard of this one before. It's the Microtracker mousepad with ultra precision tracking control. It's a smaller mousepad that looks like a normal cheap cloth mousepad. Let's have a closer look!

Gainward Ultra/750-8X Ti4800SE 128MB review
We’re a bit late to the game with 8x-AGP GeForce4 video card reviews, but maybe that’s intentional. We must remain focused and objective when reviewing gear, and especially items that deliver respectable bang for the buck. Not many of us can afford GeForce FX and Radeon 9800 Pro cards, so here’s a review for those on a tight budget. Here’s a snip:

“With the impending release of the newer GeForce FX graphics cards, we thought we would give the GeForce4 Ti range one last look with the Gainward Ultra/750 Ti4800SE - a value card with ample performance to tide the average gamer over, without too much impact on the wallet. For a different spin on things, we pair it with identical VIA KT400 and NVIDIA nForce2 systems powered by the new AMD XP 2800+ Barton core.”

A silk purse from a sow's ear or How Marko silenced his PSU by modding it for safe fanless operation
It was a bit of a tossup whether Marko's great project piece should go in the System section or the PSU section of, but in the end, the latter won out. He first wrote about it as Quix in the SPCR forums, but now you can get the whole 9 yards in Marko's article about a DIY Fanless PSU PC System.

KTI Networks Pen Drive 2.0 Review
Moving data between computers there are lots of handy devices out there for this purpose. This is my first experience with a removeable storage device. KTI Networks sent me a sample of their Pen Drive 2.0 These removable drives start a 32mb and go up to a whopping 1 Gig of storage space! What impressed me was the speed of data transfers and the accessories that come with the 64mb and larger drives. Don't miss out on this review of reading and writing devices, I was impressed and I think you will be too!
