Performance-PCs Custom Sleeved Ultima PSU Review
Performance-PCs is spot on when they named this new line of Custom PSUs the Ultima Series. This is by far, THE Ultimate Custom PSU Package available in the market today. First and most obvious of all, you get the best of the best PSU around, the Antec TruePower 550W PSU. These babies are known for their stability and reliability so you can't go wrong with that. On top of that, you get the awesome sleeving work on the cables that Performance-PCs is famous for. And it's no ordinary sleeving.. these are Flexo Pet Expandable UV Reactive Sleeves. You get the versatility of using only the number of connectors you need with their removable socket connectors. No more trying to hide the cables you don't use! Then you get the UV Reactive Acrylic PSU Cover, the Antec UV Reactive 80mm fan and a 92mm Blue Quad Led Fan!

HydroCool200 External Water Cooling Kit.
The water block used on the HydroCool200 is very compact, and universal. Those running AMD K7 based processors will have an installation bracket, as will those using Intel Pentium 4 processors. Corsair decided it could relieve the consumer of paying for extra blocks, and figured it would be more considerate to build a block universal for today's processors. On the top of the water block is a temperature probe that plugs into the slot plate card. Oddly, the thermal probe is not inserted into the block. Instead, the block is in a metal tube-like section on the top of the water block. Temperature readings are taken off of the top of the block, rather than underneath or inside. At this point, I'm not sure how well this will go over in the overclocking industry, but time will tell.

Chenming ATX-301KE Silver Aluminum Case Review
Many people tend to think cases are all the same. Cases are just places to put your computer in right? Well when they come with their new case they begin to find faults and problems with it, thus they begin to regret their lack of proper choice. I still believe that cases are one of the most overlooked things in “build your own computer” land. With high-performance system’s becoming widely available, cooling has been a major factor.

We will see if the newest Chenming ATX-301KE Silver Aluminum Case looks to change that
