Today's Hardware Site Roundup

We take a brief tour round the wibbly wobbly Web

Kyle Bennett takes the Alpha cooling system for a spin over at HardOCP. There's also an interesting cooling system for an Abit mobo on his site. Has he ever played around with overclocking a Compaq Alpha microprocessor, we wonder. Would it need a chimney? Anand, over at AnandTech, takes a look at the Enlight EN-8950 Extended ATX case, pointing out that the company started out by making kitchen strainers. Anyone who's ever built their own PCs will know that having the right kind of case avoids cuts, bruises and frustration. A site we haven't looked at before, Computing Pros, looks at some PC-133 memory from Corsair. BX Boards also ventures into overclocking with a look at a hefty Swiftech heatsink and fan combo called the MC-1000. This is a beast and a half, designed to chill CPUs. Don't forget Robert Collins' site, Microprocessor Resources. Robert used to run Intel Secrets (much to Chipzilla's irritation, at times), and there's always a heap of useful and in-depth information on the site. Finally, a mention for PC Docteur, a French language site which covers games, benchmarks and other PC hardware. ®
