Howdy pardners, time to check what's in the OK Corral today.

Overclocker's Workbench takes a peek at the new Gigabyte 8TX - Pentium 4 mobo. Yes, you heard right, Pentium 4. How did they test it, you ask? Well, they didn't. What a swizz. But you can win a tube of Artic Silver Thermal Paste in a competition, so it's probably worth taking a gander anyway.

And on the same site you certainly do want to check out news of ALI's first mobo for the Pentium III supporting DDR memory.

Seems to get the thumbs-up then.



Storage Review

probes Maxtor's monstro 80GB hard disk, the DiamondMax 80. You'll be glad to hear than size isn't everything, as the chaps reckon "Maxtor still knows how to build a quality drive".
