Thermaltake ATX 420W Power Supply Review
We need more POWER! I have reviewed a few power supplies and this is my first one from Thermaltake. They make great heatsinks and cases. I have one of their power supplies on the chopping block. One of the great attributes of this unit was the stability of the power it delivered. I think you would want to check out this offering! Don't be short changed by a power supply, come in and see for yourself what this unit achieves, I was shocked to say the least

Volcano 9 with CoolMod Review
Most people are concerned about CPU temperatures. So we'll take out or often meek performance retail heatsinks and replace them with high performance coolers. Voiding our warranties in the process, but isn't that the fun of it? Anyway, while the Volcano 9 CoolMod is nothing new on the market, especially with the new Volcano 11 out now, it's new to me. But new coolers mean the old ones go on sale right? I took some sound measurements with a microphone, slapped them in a movie, so you know what you are up against. Continue on as I put the Volcano 9 on the chopping block

Cold-Cathode Lampe blau 10cm
Hallo, eine Kaltlichtkathode die nur 10 cm Lang ist wollen wir euch Heute vorstellen. Ok,das ist nicht so etwas Besonderes,aber die Leutkraft ist bei diesem Exemplar sehr hoch. Sie wirkt viel heller als eine 30 cm Kathode. Alles weitere findet Ihr in unserem Bericht.

Antec True Control 550W PSU
With the introduction of the True Control 550 Antec has made many extreme overclocker's dreams come true. Sagging voltage lines can be your worst enemy for those late night overclocking sessions where you know you can get that extra couple of MHz out of your system, but the voltage lines keep sagging and dropping the BSOD bomb on you. With the True Control 550, you can pretty much rule out sagging lines. The front control panel looks good, and is well laid out. Also being able to still utilize the bay for a 3¼" drive is a nice plus.

Innovatek Innovaset 2 Liquid Cooling kit
As you can see from the results, the Innovatek muscled out the competition in our testing. The only place it could have done better was in the ambient tests while the system was idle. The system ran very quiet with the kit installed and that in itself is a bonus in my eyes. In all, I was able to push my AMD Athlon XP 2600+ (2.1GHz) all the way up to 2.45 GHz which is our best OC yet. I imagine someone with better oc’ing skills could push on for a bit better result. I should note, the temps for under load (prime 95) hung around 113 degrees Fahrenheit while at this speed.
