Corsair TwinX4000 DDR500
Power is great, stability is great. Place those two together and you get memory modules from Corsair Memory, and they're what we're looking at this time. But rather than just being memory that does the job, these go much further. Corsair's latest memory modules plunge in at 500MHz of DDR speed, with decent latency timings as well. As we've seen with Corsair's TwinX, which are rigorously tested for Dual Channel DDR motherboards, lower latency is a key factor for a more stable Dual Channel DDR memory module--that is for right now, at least. It's a company that's well known mostly because of speed, and workmanship. Most all gamers find them to be some of the best performance memory of choice. I personally have been a huge fan of Corsair memory for quite some time. I've even had the pleasure of meeting some of the individuals that work at Corsair Memory as well. It's a great company that cares about its customers, and those like myself who test their products. So without further ad, here's the worlds fastest memory: XMS4000!

ThermalTake XView review
RipNet-UK has a brand new review online for your weekend enjoyment! Case modding remains big business and companies are always looking for new add-ons to try and tempt you with. Today RipNet-UK takes a look at the XView from ThermalTake, a customisable 5.25" drive bay unit which is backlit with an EL (electro-luminescent) sheet, allowing you to display any image you like - the only limit is your imagination!

Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
Even though I paid for an 300MHZ Basic Axim X5, being an overclocker at heart, of course I wanted it to perform at least as well as a 400MHZ Advanced Axim X5. While doing some pre-sale PDA research at Dell's own remarkably good support forums [Which I suggest any prospective X-5 buyer visit before purchasing an Axim], I discovered a mention of a PDA overclocking utility called Pocket Hack Master which I thought might help me do just that..

Und gute Vergleichsmöglichkeiten findet ihr in unseren Luftkühlercharts
