Global WIN 520 watt super silent power supply
We are stuck for words. The Global WIN 520w works and works well for us. And yes, it is silent in use. You do not buy a power supply every day so you want to buy one that is top quality and has power to spare for the future. The Global WIN 520w has just that. Capable of pushing out a peak load of 620 watts and all day long running at 520 watts loading you have a super power supply for years to come

nForce 3 Pro Performance Exclusive: Asus SK8N with Opteorn 242 & 244 vs Athlon XP 3200+ and P4 3.2GHz
So what we have with the nForce 3 Professional 150 is an impressive workstation chipset that takes advantages of the Opteron features, and leaves us eager to see the 250 version, and whether more performance can be had by driver or chipset updates. With the SK8N we see another excellent board from Asus that feature-wise stacks up to the P4C800 featurewise. The only questions are whether Asus will release bios updates with more tweaking and configuration options, if the shipping version 1.03 board has better performance, and what the pricing will be. We feel the SK8N will come in near the P4C800 which is currently priced at just under $200 as it is a single chipset solution. The extra cost of a memory controller is now absorbed into the CPU. We hope to see more features in the bios, and improved performance.

PodPod-iPod Easel
With the new digital hub craze, mainly based around music and movies there has been a take off in inventions for many of these products. One product being the iPod, when Apple first introduced this product their goal was to leave it generalized in a way. Apple wanted to give developers a chance to better this product and twist it into there own. This was a great idea introducing many new products, such as FM transmitters, stands, and covers protecting the iPod from scratches and abrasions. The product recently obtained, mainly has a use of holding the pod for saving space and adding style to your iPod setup

GMC Noblesse SE Mid-Tower Case Review
The front door itself is the real eye candy of the case. Removing the protective plastic coating, you see the mirror finished panel. As the unit swings out, the color reflection changes from an electric blue, to a marine aqua, and then a royal purple. Any of these three colour schemes could easily be implemented during modification, via lighting, internal chassis painting, or supplemental LED fans
