COOLINK Cool Tank1 Power Review @ Madshrimps

"I was pleased by the overall product quality and the user-friendly installation. The performance may not be comparable to the best of the best out there, but this product is not aimed at the eXtreme enthusiast. It is made for people who don´t want to spend a fortune on a heatsink and still see some good temperature decreases when replacing their default cooling solution. In this aspect the Coolink does exactly that!"

HWZ review: Kingmax SuperRAM DDR433 Memory

"The real world gain for the SuperRAM DDR433 over equivalently configured DDR400 memory is anywhere between 3% to 8% and this gain is in conjunction with an increased FSB of 217MHz and a RAM:FSB ratio set to 1:1. Only overclockers can decide if this gain is really worth the extra investment to overclock their systems successfully. Overall, we are contented with the Kingmax SuperRAM DDR433 as it worked to our expectations and it is ideal for those wanting to push their systems a little without underclocking the memory subsystem."

Samsung SyncMaster 173B Review @ MonkeyReview

"As you can see, the specs aren´t too extraordinary compared to Samsung´s higher end models. When the price is factored in we see where the price cut affects the specs. The brightness level (250cdm²) seems to be lower than what we´d like to see, though the 450:1 contrast level is on the ball in terms of mid-high end LCD´s. The other two specs which are in line with the monitor class are the 25ms response time and the .26 dot pitch."

CASE4U EOS Mini-itx / Micro-ATX Case Review @ Tweaknews.net

"For a small inexpensive case, the EOS does have some value. The case is well built (although heavy), attractive and wouldn´t be a bad choice for an inexpensive small workstation, HTPC or a file server. The questionable inclusion of the Anion Air Purifier is a good idea, but I really think that it could be removed and the money placed in other parts of the case."
