Vantec Nexus NXP-101 & NXP-201 review @ myWORLD Hardware

"Modders and overclockers would normally spend tons of cash to cool down their systems with fans & cooling accessories. However the most overclockers lack control over their cooling fans and they have no idea what is going on in their computer without going through their system monitors running on the taskbar. Sometimes, one might want to turn down the noise generated by casing fans and maybe a much more convenient way..."

SteelPad 4S — Gaming Mousepad @ KEPTech.net

"The gaming community is growing at a very fast pace. In the case of online gaming, there is competition Ė very strong competition. With online First Person Shooter games, all the players want the best rig to run their game smoothly; the best sound system to strategically locate the enemies, and the best mouse to quickly and accurately target them. If you have ever played any first person shooter games, youíll know that the mouse is almost as important as the computer.
As the gaming community grows, more and more gamers demand better accuracy with their pointing devices. The general trend was going from ball mice to optical mice; however, some were starting to take the demand of accuracy from their mouse pads."

Chaintech Apogee A-FX71 Geforce FX5600 Ultra Ver2 @ MonkeyReview

"The results are enough to speak for themselves. Iím impressed with the overall performance and look of the Chaintech A-FX71 FX5600 Ultra v2. There is little doubt in my mind that the A-FX71 would look stellar in almost any environment that would allow it to be shown off. As mentioned at the start of this review, the card is a little more expensive than many of the budget cards available. The upshot is that youíre getting a fair amount for your money; a lucrative bundle combined with a high performing and good looking card."

XTrac Zoom Mouse Pad @ EOC

"Mousing surfaces can be a big deal to the extreme gamer, especially in first person games where accuracy and precision is important. There are many types of mouse pads out there. Some are made of plastic, aluminum, and even glass. There are many different aspects that make a mouse pad good besides controlling the mouse. Durability, size, and maintenance are all factors that should be taken into consideration when buying a pad."
