Powercolor Evil Commando 2 ATi R9700 Pro 128MB VGA
From the benchmarks above, we can see that R9700 Pro gives Nvidia FX5800 a serious run for its money. The difference between a R9700 Pro and FX5800 is usually within 10%, which would be hardly noticeable..

Enermax UC-A3FATR2 Thermal Controller
I set my temperature alarms as described in the directions and attached my fans. I then placed one thermal probe on the Video card and one probe on the RAM. In order to check the probe temps and the fan speeds one only needs to hit the mode button. The fan speed itself is controlled by the two knobs on the left.

Lighted Fan Roundup
I can remember back when a fan was just a fan, used for cooling and nothing else. Now we have colored fans, UV reactive fans, clear fans, lighted fans, you name it, it's been done!

Abit NF7-M nForce2
We take a look at Abit's latest nForce 2 solution, the NF7-M. It's based on the revision v1.2 PCB, and includes the nVidia nForce 2 IGP.

"For overclockers, you have a wealth of options available in the BIOS, and although the v2.0 PCB adds 200FSB Barton support, as we've seen here, the v1.2 PCB appears to be up to the task. Just remember to disable the onboard IGP if you plan on memory overclocking, and to make sure your BIOS is at least v1.6 to gain access to additional FSB options."
