HWZ review: Chaintech Zenith 9CJS (Intel 875P)

"If you´re looking for a board with good features, the Chaintech 9CJS Zenith is one that you should seriously consider. The board is packed with very tempting features and we believe they would really appeal to most power users. The dual LAN feature is one-of-a-kind and it´s currently the only Canterwood board we know that comes with two LAN ports — one based on the Intel 82547EI and the other on Realtek´s RTL8101L. Two LAN ports may sound luxurious, but users who need the extra Ethernet port for Internet sharing, or even for file serving purposes would benefit a lot from it."

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 200GB Review @ Bjorn3d.com

"The Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 200GB drive performance actually was better than I thought it would be. The only downside some people may find with the drive is you do hear the heads moving during operations. I for one though do not mind this. It may be the car freak in me, but it makes me feel like my system is doing some work and doing it fast when I can hear it."

Corsair TwinX PC3200 Dual Channel DDR Memory Review @ Tweaknews.net
