And meet the new Hexus chiller thriller

If, like me,you've discovered that your computer is limping a little, then the first place you want to check out today is Hexus.com for its system price
guide.

Staying with the first time system builder looking for
a decent board, the mobo-minded at Arstecnica think they have found just the thing. The Abit KA7 has been the subject of much discussion in hardware land over the last couple of days, and it gets another, almost, glowing review here. Not recommended for
overclockers, but they have a lot of good things to
say about it.

Another last Hurrah for the BX chipset. BX Boards takes a peek at a new board from Soyo, based on the old timer from Intel and the HPT370 from Highpoint. They say that the Soyo SY-6BA+100 is a
super stable overclocking board, so if you are happy
with a 100MHz rated chipset running at 133MHz, then it
is probably a go. Just don't forget, you'll have to
live without AGP4X and the /2 AGP divider as well.

And back to Hexus for the last piece today; the new
chiller man at Hexus.com has already caught the
attention of a couple of people for his diary of his
overclocking efforts. We thought you'd probably
appreciate being pointed in its direction, in case you
hadn't seen it already. Loads of pics too. ®

We have a section called Hardware Roundups (there's a permanent link on the front page). You can take a peek here.
