Hardware Roundup The Gigabyte 8TX – and more…

Pentium 4 mobos, thermal grease, what more could you ask for?

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.



Over at

One2surf

there's a review of the Abit KT7-RAID mobo, based on the VIA KT133 chipset for Socket A Duron and Thunderbirds. What do they think of it? "The ABIT KT7-RAID has no equal currently, and its majestic design has a certain pizzazz."



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".



Short and sweet today, well it is Friday and you did get two instalments yesterday, so there. ®
