Bjorn3d Reviews the Thermaltake Extreme Volcano 12

"Their latest addition to the Volcano series is the Extreme Volcano 12. This HSF features support for AMD Athlon XP up to 3400+, an all copper heat sink, and a variety of operation modes. In this review, I will be comparing the Extreme Volcano 12´s performance to a stock HSF that AMD ships with Athlon XPs. Considering that it is all copper and much larger than the stock HSF, I expect the Extreme Volcano 12 to outperform the stock HSF by near two digit margins."

OCZ 512meg Platinum Dual Channel PC3200 Memory Kit Review @ Tweaknews.net

"Being an unbiased website, I have to report to the reading population as to how a product performed and I am never about to sugarcoat a review to make a product sound better than it is. The OCZ Platinum Dual Channel Memory Kit would be an expensive stock or mild overclocking alternative to generic memory, but honestly any informed consumer would be better off putting your money into the Corsair TwinX PC3200 kit for the SAME money and be able to push your system to the edge. Because of this, OCZ´s Dual Channel Kit being reviewed today will get the "Good Product Award" because it does perform perfectly at it rated speed, just not too much more."

ABIT Siluro FX5900 OTES VGA Card Reviewed @ myWORLD Hardware

"On 18th November 2002, NVIDIA announces their highly anticipated top of the line product, GeForce FX5800Ultra. It was touted to be the first ever graphic chip to be made under 0.13micron process with incredible core and memory speed, featuring DDR II memory that runs at 1GHz. Although NVIDIA was heavily promoting it, getting hands on one of them is sure hard enough which were mainly contributed by delay productions and high priced tag. Choice wise, it was the only DirectX 9.0 card by NVIDIA at that time."
