Aerocool Extreme CPU Cooler Review @ Bjorn3d

"My first impressions when seeing the packaging for this particular unit are "Cool!". I like the little box that holds all the pieces of the package together. All of the items are neatly arranged and fit well into the plastic box. After opening it up is when the real first impressions grow. This is a sweet looking HSF unit. The big copper base and fins scream out, "I´ll make your processor nice and cool, I promise!". The nice 80mm clear orange fan gives you the immediate thought that this is going to look good in my case all lit up. Did I mention that this thing lights up with three LEDs attached to the sides of the fan?"

Hitachi CML152 15" LCD Monitor @ Techware Labs

"As of late, LCD panels have becoming more and more popular as they become more affordable. For the general user the space-saving dimensions of a LCD flat panel combined with their reduction of eyestrain outweigh the losses in picture quality.
Today, we´re taking a look at the Hitachi CML152, Hitachi´s least expensive model in their entire LCD display line. This LCD panel is designed for and marketed towards those that are in the market for a basic, inexpensive LCD monitor."

A day with a retail VIA A64 K8T800 chipset mainboard @ OCWorkbench

"Today, we spent some time with a VIA K8 A64 board and noticed something that we would like to share with you.

  1. The AXP 3100+ appears as AXP 2900+
  2. CAS 2 won´t work at all.

    This reaffirmed our earlier postings about the downgrade of 3100 as 2900 (as recognised by latest BIOS). The second point seems strange as selecting CAS 2 no matter what ram timings, the board wouldn´t boot.
