ATi Radeon and Iwill KA266 tie the knot
Fancy flying a space ship?
HWRoundup Sometimes it seems like two pieces of hardware are just not meant to be together, like the ATi Radeon and the KA266 from Iwill. But, where most would have given up and taken them to the silicon equivalent of the divorce court, Lost Circuits persevered. After some brainstorming [That always sounds so painful -Ed] they bring you this report on how even the most troublesome relationships can be improved.
Iwill's KT133A chipset motherboard has gone down a treat at Amdmb.com. The boys over there have postedthis
review of the board. Despite their initial reservations, in the end they concluded that it scrubbed up good, as they say.
We hadn't heard from Frostytech for a while, but then they let us know that they've had a look at the FCE-62540D heatsink from Vantec. Can it go the distance against competition from the likes of the SuperOrb from Thermaltake? Nothing bad in the first impressions, so check out the rest of the reviewhere
3DNow discover that the colour of a cooler can make a difference to its performance. In this case, they've looked at the Thermosonic Thermoengine V60-4210 socket A heatsink, where the black cooler ran a degree colder that the gold or silver versions. Now, I'm sure I read an explanation of this in a text book once, same reason Bedouins wear black robes in the desert or something like that, but I could be wrong.

OK, so it isn't hardware, but how cool isthis
