Overclockers New Zealand have updated their DDR Guide II with new RAMs from Mushkin and posted some issues regards to GEIL's RAM.
The Mushkin Enhanced Dual Black High Performance Level II 3200 512MB and 1GB have similar overclocking potential. The Mushkin Level II's performance is marginally lower the famous Corsair XMS range; however, given the price difference, Mushkin Level II would be a better choice for the price sensitive customers

Criticool PowerPlant review
For anyone who has set up a liquid cooling kit which utilizes an AC powered pump, you can relate to the pain in the rear that it can be, when forced to cut a hole in your new or used case to allow the power cord (w Ground) a place to escape to, the inside of the case. For those of you wishing an alternative to a hole in their tower, those of us looking for a little more control over our pump, or those of you who just have a hard time remembering to turn on the pump before the system, the Criticool PowerPlant might be what you desire.

Thermalright SLK900U HSF Review
One of the other things that make the SLK-900U unique is that you can mount just about any type of fan on it, from a 70mm to 92mm. The “stock” fan that ThermalRight suggests is a Delta 92mm fan that moves an impressive 110.18CFM at a noisy 55dBA. However, most vendors on the web sell the unit without a fan so you can pick and choose which one suits your needs. For this review we will be using a ThermalTake Smart Case Fan-2 80mm fan which at full speed runs at 4800RPM, 48dBA, and moves 75.7CFM

Zippy EL-610 Lighted Keyboard
The short keystrokes is another thing that may take some getting use to. But I like that, and it makes for less stressful typing. The light is a nice-soft Aqua color. It is bright so you'll have no problem reading the keys in the dark. And if your fingers are larger than average, you may have difficulty typing mistake-free.
