SiS648FX motherboard
Intel has just recently announced their latest updated version of Pentium 4 processor, known as Prescott for its codename. The new processor is just a merely updated version of Pentium 4 processor with the increase front side bus speed from the previous 533MHz to the new 800MHz in quad pump speed.

Intel P4 2.6C chip
The OCAddiction crew get their hands on the new Intel P4 2.6C chip. The enthusiast crowd has been eagerly anticipating the lower clocked P4 C’s and the 2.6 looks to deliver some serious performance for your hard earned dollars. Did the OCA guys overclock this puppy? Hmmm……let’s check the review and find out.

“Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Intel knew that it had some tricks up its sleeves. What tricks could Intel possibly throw at us to shove their way squarely to the center of attention and again reclaim their king of speed title? Well, that's what we're here today to discuss and review. Enter the Pentium4 processors based on an 800Mhz front side bus. Intel, as well as more than a few fan sites, have declared these new CPU's champion and again relegated AMD to 2nd place. To be honest, after seeing the results of our own Pentium4 3.0c review I would tend to say they were dead on. That left us in a bit of a quandary: Intel was again the biggest and baddest, but they were still priced out of reach for average consumers. They answered that call by releasing 2.4GHz, 2.6GHz, and 2.8GHz flavors of the new chip shortly after the launch of the 3.0c.”

Lian Li C-01A 5.25" Universal Aluminum Bay Cover Review
Having a Lian Li case in itself is something to be proud of. You work with it, changing out hardware, showing off your slick system, but you have those but ugly beige drives showing, and they don't look so good do they? What are you to do? Stealth them? Dye them? Paint them? How about stealth them the Lian Li way? While Lian Li has specific covers for some drives, why not take advantage of a universal 5.25" bay cover that is just now hitting the shelves?

Swiftech H20-8500™ Series Liquid Cooling Kit Review
This product is one of the highest quality kits on the market today. The blocks are extremely well crafted with a polished copper base for maximum contact with the processor, tubes easily insert into fittings, effective radiator, etc... Also, since there's no reservoir it will fit into even the smallest tower cases. Watch the Video to find out more.

Thermalright SK-6+ vs SK-7
Here the SK7 takes a decent lead, of about 2ºC over the next closest rival, the Zalaman CNPS 3100 heatsink, which has a larger surface area due to its 'flower' design. The SK7 at medium speed also beats the SK6+ with the high speed Thermaltake fan, which is a interesting point, as this 'apples to apples' comparison shows the SK7 is a better performer when most other things are equal
