Corsair TwinX PC3200 Dual Channel DDR Memory Review
After reading how well Corsair's memory was benchmarking and performing throughout all the reviews I have read over the past year, I had some high expectations for their memory. Was I let down? Not in the slightest.

mnpctech's Modders Mesh
Modder’s mesh isn’t a normal case modding product in that it doesn’t come packaged with a set of instruction’s and mounting hardware. Instead, it is a cool looking material that you can use creatively to take your rig to the next level

Our multimeter readings were consistently greater than both spec and MBM average, and they remained within the ±4% (for 3.3V) and ±5% (for 12V and 5V) ranges. Ideally these readings should be as close to 12V, 3.3V, and 5V as possible, but in the real world this usually isn't the case. From an overclocker's POV, it's better to have higher power rails than lower to provide better voltage to components, and the EG-365P does exactly so

Vantec Nexus NXP-205 Fan Controller Review
The Nexus NXP-205 Fan Controller connects up to 4 fans and allows you manually adjust the fan speed and noise level. The fan speed is determined by the variable speed potentiometer settings which vary the voltage of the fan from 7V-12V. Each channel will support up to 18 watts. Ultra bright blue LED lights combine perfectly with the black or silver housing. The Nexus Fan Controller is great for Large CFM fans and fits perfectly in your 3.5" drive bay

It wasn't till we got to 11x215 we got another BSOD during bootup of WindowsXP. Backing off to 11x210 in 1MHz increments and increasing voltage to 1.675v on the core got us stable again. At this point we lowered the Mulitplier down to 10.5, for a 10.5x 210 at which point we proceded to increase the FSB once again. By 10.5x 219 we still had no issues

Raidmax Power Supplies
When removed from their boxes beauty of these units was apparent. They weren't just another ordinary box power supply. These two had a heat-sink type ridge system over them. It gave the shell of the power supplies a little needed attitude or flair. The 400W power supply came in a sharp blur color and the 500W showed off its style in the classic black. Now for those of you who have windows and think that a clear power supply cover looks a little tacky, these power supplies are for you. You will have to be careful while moving them around and installing them, because the color does scratch off pretty easily
