Flash your nVidia FX5900 NoneUltra to a FX5950 Ultra @ Madshrimps
"nVidia used to hardwire all graphic cards with the correct BIOS so flashing cards like ATi wasn´t possible... However, newly released information suggests that the NV38 (5950u) is simply a software rebadged NV35 (5900). This means that even a 128MB 5900 can be flashed into a 128MB 5950u. This also applies to VIVO. Does this turn you on yet?!"

Antec Aluminum P160 Case and 430W TruePower PSU Review @ Bjorn3D
"The Antec P160 is a sweet case that will turn heads and leave you without a noise induced headache. It is a little on the expensive side, averaging around $120 at most major online retailers. It is definitely worth a look for anyone looking to upgrade his/her case. The only thing you have to watch out for is that fragile LED cable and the short length of the included control panel connections."

Cooling 3D Style Gigabyte cool the clocks @ TweakTown
"When we think of processor cooling devices most of us would first think of Thermaltake, CoolerMaster or OCZ. What about if we told you to think of Gigabyte? Start thinking about it! Gigabyte has just released their very first cooler for AMD Athlon XP and 64 as well as Intel Pentium 4. We´ve got Gigabyte´s 3D cooler on the test bed. Come see just what it is capable of when we push some more MHz through the processors!"

Legion Hardware (Gigabyte 3D Cooler-Pro)
"Being the very first cooling solution to be developed by Gigabyte, the 3D Cooler-Pro certainly is an impressive product. It has been clear for a reasonably long time now that air based cooling has hit the end of the road. However, there are always new was to refine a product and Gigabyte have done just that. I see the concept of the 3D Cooler-Pro as being a quiet controlled cooler that still produces pleasing results."

CES report and Iridium AVPC @ TrustedReviews
"The integrated keyboard on the AVPC is an extended laptop keyboard with a numerical keypad to the right as well as some quick launch buttons to the left. The keyboard can be folded up towards the screen at the front of the AVPC for tidy storage, but itís not removable which in turn means that to move the keyboard you have to move the whole AVPC."

OCW Review : Gigabyte Cooler-Pro PCU21-VG
"Who would ever thought of a Gigabyte Heatsink/Cooler. Packed in a small plastic box, the cooler comes with various clips for K7, K8 and P4. One heatsink with multiple clips to support all platforms available. In our review, we compare it with Thermaltake Volcano 11+ and Coolermaster Aero 7. See how they fare in terms of noise, performance."
