Two Case Reviews, LED Fan, DDR-2 Article and a Few Other Goodies

Good evening friends, welcome back to HH :)  I was driving home from work tonight when I noticed my car could use some gas.  As I approached the unusually empty gas station I happened to look at the price of gas; it had jumped to a record high of $0.84 per/L ($3.18 per/Gallon for you folks in the US).  Considering that I need...

Mouse Grips, Power Supplies and Controller Card

Good morning friends, how are you?   After pounding out some benchmarks last night I decided some downtime was in order, so I fired up my new game, Hitman: Contracts.  If you haven't played this series, think of a cross between Splinter Cell and Max Payne.  In the game you play an assassin that gets hired by various employers...
