Trios II Multi Drive Selector
The Trios II allows you to have up to 3 operating systems on one machine and switch between them with the push of a button. I had heard about the original Trios some time ago and thought, "Sounds cool. Probably doesn't work." Then the Trios II came out and I began hearing good things about it from people I knew and trusted. Since my foray into the Linux world, the first and most popular question I get is, "How do I dual boot with Windows?" My answer was always, if you have to ask, don't do it. Why? Because I've seen even alpha-geeks hose their machine dual booting

Enermax Silent Coolmod
Nachdem mir mein Enermax einfach zu Öde und die Geräuschkulisse zu laut geworden ist, haben ich mir überlegt wie ich Optik mit Silent verbinden kann und bin dabei auf ein super Zubehör von Noiseblocker getroffen. Die Rede ist natürlich von den NT Plexy Caps womit man sein Enermax durchsichtig macht. Dann noch 2x Silent Lüfter auch von Noiseblocker damit der Lärmpegel runter geht. Da mein Netzteil über eine integrierte Lüftersteuerung verfügt, diese aber leider nur den kleinen 80er Lüfter steuert musste diese natürlich auch modifiziert werden. Wie man das am besten macht und was man noch so alles am Netzteil umbauen muss seht ihr in unserem How To. Viel Spaß beim nachlesen.

Gigabyte 8PE800Ultra
Intel has released their latest Pentium 4's that are designed to run on an 800 MHz FSB. With the new processor release also came the new chipset, 875P, that supports dual channel memory as well as 800 MHz FSB. Recently motherboard manufacturers have released motherboards based on the older 845PE chipset. These mainboards are supposed to be able to support 800 MHz FSB through overclocking. We tested the ABIT BH7 awhile back and it was able to use the new CPU by overclocking, since the 845PE chipset only officially supports 533/400 MHz FSB.

Leadtek A300TD 128MB GeForce FX5800 VGA
The aluminium enclosure does more harm than good, as it keeps hot air inside. The heatsink attachment mechanism is less than desirable. Lastly, the A300TD might be incompatible with motherboards that have ram slots close to AGP slot, e.g. Epox 8RDA+, as the back aluminium panel gets in the way

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Processor Review
AMD comes charging out of the gate on the 400 MHz Front Side Bus Athlon XP 3200+. Frame rates are going to jump as AMD continues to push the performance envelope. The Athlon XP 3200+ is here and we took a unique twist to the round of benchmarks. Should the 3200+ be on your shopping list? A lot depends on what you have already.
