ABIT BH7 Review
ABIT is a company that has been in the motherboard business for a long time. My first real motherboard was the ABIT BE6-II. The first time I fired that board up and went into the SoftMenu, I was hooked on ABIT. ABIT has been known for performance based boards from the beginning. They have always had the overclocker and enthusiast in mind when designing their motherboards. As a matter of fact, ABIT states that the board was built for Overclockers, by Overclockers

ShatteredWeb Appliques
All of the appliques I was sent were shipped inside a cardboard envelope. Unless the postman decides to fold the envelope up this should be sufficient.

These appliques look great on paper, but they probably look cooler on a window, so lets move on to applying them...

I have found the design printed on PCXMod's pads to be unique, as I have never seen a pattern quite like it on any other mouse pad, or anywhere for that matter."

The Zalman CNPS7000-CU and the CNPS7000-ALCU are virtually identical except the CU model is all Copper and the ALCU model is Aluminum and Copper. They both offer near silent cooling while keeping the temperatures down. Also, these coolers can be used on the Socket 478 (Intel P4) and 754 (AMD Athlon 64). Watch the Video to find out more..
