HWRoundup What do you get if you put an Alpha PEP66 with the KT7 mod, the GlobalWin FOP38, the OCZ Monster 2 and the OCZ Qua cooler in the same room? If you are at the HQ of Overclockers Online, you get a socket A cooler roundup, and you stick on the web. Just like they did here.



The ever-adamant I-am-not-a-geek crew has posted a peek at the Thermaltake Volcano II. They reckon it might be one of the first, and it is stuffed full of pictures, so have a look if you fancy the idea of a non-orb product from Thermaltake. Read it

Having spent some time earlier this week telling us how to save money, today Dr Tom looks at how to spend a load of it on a very small piece of kit. Is the Sony Vaio (featuring the Transmeta Crusoe processor) worth its weight in gold? Or is it an over priced diddy computer? Those of you who can't quite guess should have a look

here.


TechGods get down and dirty with the Soyo SY-7ISA+ mobo. Minus any voltage tweaking facilities, this board is never going to win any overclocking contests, but they reckon it is nice and stable, and a good solid board if all you want is a PC that doesn't fall over every half hour. Click

BXBoards branches out a bit today, and has widened its "interesting" file to include and MP3 player from DLink. Click

for the intro and links to the reviews. More to come though, and as Eric says: "I was VERY thorough with these reviews- more so than your 'average' MP3 player review." so if you want to get the goods, check it out.




We were sent a link to a lovely picture of a fried mouse today, entitled "Pets and Computers." Presumably the sub heading would have been "And why they should never be mixed." It is still on the front page of

Overclockers

down in the land of Oz, but you'll have to scroll down. All I can say is if you need more power, at least give the mouse a wheel to run in. ®



More hardware related bits and pieces are in the archives. But you can only get there by clicking on the differently coloured word. Hmmm, a tricky one today, if you have a black and white monitor.
