I previously had thought that the only thing this case was missing is
at least one place for a side fan in the window. Preferably over the
video card, or perhaps the cpu. The other similar, but steel case I had
this system in did have a side fan over the video card. However, temps
in the same conditions are always 1-2C lower in this Chieftec aluminum
case than in the same basic, but steel case. Could it be that a side fan
disrupts air flow from the front intake fans, or is it because aluminum
really does dissapate heat better
FIC has another great Athlon motherboard with the AU13. It has good features and excellent performance with a price that is right. If you are looking for a lower cost nForce 2 Ultra 400 motherboard with good overclocking and hardware features then the FIC AU13 could be for you.
Samsung SyncMaster 153B 15 Inch Black LCD Monitor Review
For a budget monitor, the 153B is no slouch in the feature or performance department. With a release price supposedly going to be in the US$250-$325 range depending on the retailer and availability. Add in the fact that it includes speakers and can be adjusted for longer document viewing and you would have the recipe for a smart, cost effective LCD purchase
Today I will be looking at Spire's NeonBar II. Lighting has become one of the most popular case mods next to case windows and there are tons of manufacturers that make different kinds of solutions for case lighting. The most popular of theses solutions is cold cathodes fluorescent lamps
As you notice from the pic there are two very obvious differences in these fans. First, the SVC fans does not have the LED band wrapped the outside. SVC choose to wire there fans directly to each LED. This allows the entire fan to glow and radiate light. Secondly, the SVC is much darker and a more pronounced green. These fans are a much deeper color than I am used to seeing and that’s a good thing.
As far as air flow goes, 36 CFM is a very respectful output. After putting 2 of these fans in a case, the overall temp didn’t decrease but it didn’t increase either. These fans are also noticeably quieter than my old ones. They also put out more CFMs…more powerful and less noise
We decided to skip the performance benches at 200 fsb with our 2.8c. This
memory is built for overclocking, and though we could have run at 200fsb
with a 4:5 or 3:4 divider, that is not where this ram shines, so we started
right out at 233fsb, which gives us 466ddr using 2-3-6-3 timings, the rated
speed for this memory
Zum Titan CPU-Kühler, den wir Heute in unsere Luftkühler Charts aufnehmen, gehört eine Lüftersteuerung, die in ein Slotblech eingefasst ist.
Für die Charts nehmen wir die Temperatur, die bei der mittleren Drehzahl ermittelt wurde.
Viel Spass bei lesen!
Vantec has been in the modding market for a while now and have
always created new and unique products. Fan controllers have been
available for a long time, but most new products that come out are
relatively the same, they only adjust the speed of fans. Vantec has now
combined fans and lights to create the NXP-301. This fan and light
controller not only adjusts up to three fan's speed, but it also
contains a built in dual cathode inverter and control for the lights
In terms of the card itself (Gigabyte R9600Pro), I would say that Gigabyte did an acceptable job on manufacturing and packaging. The card's overclocking potential is a lot better than Gigacube's R9600Pro, with a maximum clock of 506C/702M
If you like to show off your hardware and a window just doesn’t cut it; you need a clear case. Xoxide has added a new twist to clear case production. Xoxide has made their case out of UV reactive acrylic. Let’s move on
As for this TV tuner card in comparison with the TV wonder USB edition, we can see a slight improvement. Since you'll be using a monitor don't expect a crystal clear image in full screen mode, but it'll still turn out pretty good. In windows mode the quality is perfect, which even surprised me! You can constantly work with the application and it won't lag, only when you have an application minimized and you maximize it that you're going to see interference in your TV windows screen.
I, for one, love the panel with the design reversed. The only downfall I am monitoring is the moisture vent in the inside of the case now. So far she seems pretty dry and I haven't noticed any condensation inside. It's not that big of a pressure and change in internal humidity of the case
Power supplies, I have reviewed several, today we have the VANTEC ION on the chopping block. This power supply is rated at 400 watts and 220 amps with a peak of 500 watts, pretty impressive! With a power supply being one of the most important parts of your computer system you don’t want a cheap or generic one with your expensive CPU or mother board. Want to know more? Then read on, you will be shockingly pleased!
