Bandwidth Capping Article
Break out the Bandwidth Rations: With more and more ISP's thinking about limiting your overall total bandwidth consumption, we discuss if this is the right way to go about cutting costs and maintaining a high level of quality service.

"But bandwidth capping at ridiculously low limits isn't a solution for the long run since the majority of those who have limits don't seem to understand that with the speed of broadband it is entirely possible to use up your quota in few days with gaming, streaming media and entertainment. How many of you like surfing for wallpapers for your PC? Looking at a couple of hundred 1600*1200 bmps or jpegs can eat into your quota quite rapidly."

EVERCOOL Water Cooler WC-101
Every geek (that I know of including myself) dreams of a computer that purrs like a kitten, yet has the power of a lion. Getting away from air cooling is the quickest way to help with noise; water cooling is a level above air cooling and is a good deal quieter. Water can absorb more heat, faster, then conventional fan cooling. The down side to water cooling is the risk of water leaking onto the electrical components of your computer. Water + Electronics = Bad News! In the past you had to worry about leaks and drips. Not anymore, Evercool has come up with a kit comes pre-built and contains everything in one container. The question is, will it do the job and cool the CPU better and quieter then a HSF (Heat Sink Fan)?

The Madshrimps show you what performance increase a 4ghz workstation has over a "slow" 3ghz one.
We take a brand new Pentium 4 3ghz with a 800Mhz FSB, put it into the ASUS P4C800 and hook it all up to a Prometeia system. How does it perform in everyday applications? Find out in this article on future CPU power

pcToys AeroMaxx TMD Socket A Heatsink
TMD fans have been available for about a year now, and were supposed to take the cooling world by storm. Oddly enough, they haven't made the splash that everyone expected. I have been wanting to get my hands on one of these fan/heatsink combinations for quite some time now, and pcToys graciously obliged. So let's see if it can perform up to par with traditional fans used for air cooling
