Chaintech 9CJS Zenith line motherboard
There has been much anticipation about the release of the Intel i875P chipset; speed alone will make the Canterwood chipset one of the most heavily demanded in a long time. Chaintech's Zenith 9CJS, its latest Pentium 4 motherboard, takes advantage of this newest chipset. For those not familiar with the Zenith line of Chaintech products, these are the high end models. You will spend a few extra dollars, that's pretty much a given, but you get your money's worth. The Apogee line is the Chaintech mid-range, and the Summit the low-end. The motherboard we're looking at here, of course, is from the Zenith line, the Zenith 9CJS.

iPAQ h1910 Pocket PC
The HP iPAQ h190 is even overclockable. Yes it is possible to overclock a Pocket PC. This can be done with programs like Clear Speed or Pocket Hackmaster. So how far can you push the 200MHz processor? How does an extra 100MHz sound? Suddenly the h190 is starting to look really good against the more expensive 300MHz and 400Mhz Pocket PCs on the market.

Arctic Silver Céramique Thermal Paste Review
All heat-producing elements in your computer that utilize a heatsink have some sort of thermal paste or adhesive between the chip and the heatsink. First it was the CPU, but GPU's and northbridge heatsinks soon followed. The point of thermal paste (some manufacturers use thermal adhesive instead) is to remove any air between the heatsink and chip, and filling those microscopic pockets with thermal paste is the best way to do that. Let's take a look at Arctic Silver's newest addition to the thermal paste market, Céramique, and see if it can hold up and even beat its predecessor, Arctic Silver 3

With nVidia’s excessive “optimizations” in recent driver releases do you think they may be afraid you would uncover more?

I don't know what they where afraid of, since I don't reverse engineer the drivers it would be difficult for me to uncover "optimizations" they have secretly made. Unless they count the fact that my next set was going to have their "program detection" disabled

Aopen AK77 400 Max
The first board we have reviewed from Aopen is definitely a nice surprise. It is one most feature packed motherboards we have ever tested, and Aopen has shown the rare ability to add unique features in hardware and software The only real negative so far is that performance was lower than average. With excellent stability and plenty of hardware and software extras make the AK77 400 Max one of the top KT400A boards around. If some bios tweaking can improve on performance then it will be as good if not better than the DFI and Gigabyte boards we have tested.

Enermax Multi-function Panels
The device we're going to look at today, from Enermax, integrates all these functions and more in a package that fits in a standard 5.25" drive bay. Actually, we're going to look at two different Enermax offerings, but we'll get into more details on that later
