Chieftec Matrix Review
For years I've been trying to find the ultimate computer case that will not only satisfy the Overclocker in me, but the case modder as well. It is very hard to find just the right case that can combine great looks and cooling with functionality. No matter what the case, there is always something lacking. That was until Chieftec came along and gave what was once a bland case, an extreme makeover. We have seen this basic chassis used by several companies, but Chieftec brings it to you in overclocking style. Looking for a kick ass case with all the bells and whistles, but without breaking the bank? Then look no further!

TwinMOS Dual Channel PC3200
With dual channel setups being all the rage, we take a look at a dual channel solution from a highly regarded memory manufacturer, TwinMOS. Does it have what it takes to deserve a spot in your rig?

"Overclocking was something of a mixed bag. Clock speed-wise, the ram did well. I had expected a little better since these are 5ns chips, but the disappointment was with the SPD settings. We weren't able to finely tune the timings to Corsair's levels, especially when jacking up the clock speed."

Waterkit from Dangerden
Well almost everyone in the overclocking/modding business knows Dangerden. They were kind enough to send me their watercooling kit. We are having a close look at this kit and I´ve even done some thumbnails so modem users can have a look also Aren't I nice?! Also I'm going to have a go with a XP 1700+ processor and see how high we can go with it so stay tuned and enjoy this review.

Enermax 3.5" Fan Controller
The latest craze to hit the market is these tiny (3.5" floppy bay) multi-function bay devices. This particular unit from Enermax allows the user to control and monitor the RPM of 2 fans and the ability to monitor the temperature at two different points. All the data is displayed on a front mount LCD display, lit by 2 Blue leds.
