Benchmarking… The Real Deal?
Benchmarking was once a way to compare products and their performance. However, recent discoveries, as well as some not-so-recent discoveries have shown that benchmarking is no longer an objective test of product performance. “Optimizations” for specific benchmarks have become a way for a company to better the public view of their products. In a sense, “Benchmarking” has really become Bench“Marketing”. Quite frankly, as an enthusiast and devotee to the computer hardware world, this upsets me.

Upgrading to Peltier Cooling
Why is the Delay Timer Kit necessary for my system? It's a well-known fact that even if you have the very best water-cooling system chilled with a High-Wattage peltier (i.e. 226W), the CPU Overclock can still fail during computer start-up. The cause of this symptom is of course heat. The CPU is not sufficiently cooled down yet when you first boot the computer. Connecting the dedicated Peltier Power Supply (such as the Mean Well S-320-12) and pump(s) to a surge protector is a common practice, so that the system start-up can be manually delayed. First you turn on the water-cooling and dedicated peltier PSU, wait for couple of minutes and then you start the computer

HighSpeed PC Athlon XP Unlocking Kit Review
The HighSpeed Athlon XP Unlocking Kit is awesome. The agents that they provide will last a long time and should last up to or more than 25 CPU’s. I successfully unlocked my CPU the third time. Here is proof that it is unlocked. My 1900+ multiplier is originally 12x. Here is it at 8x

How-To Fill and Bleed an Inline Water Cooling System
You sit back, quite proud of yourself, and admire your work. Slowly, a dark thought creeps into the recesses of your mind ..... this will all need to be done again in three months when you change your coolant! It is then that you think, "There has got to be a better way". Well, there is a better way!

AMS G-Mono Mid Tower Case (White) w/ Window
You may or may not like the physical appearance of the Gmono, it really just depends on your taste. My friends think it is 'blah' but I think it looks pretty decent. So many cases are silver and black, etc. so to me it is nice to see a plain white one finally. Again, whether you like how it looks depends on your personal preference. Let's take a closer look at Mr. Gmono...
