"While the photographs don't give the entire game away, the basic construction, motherboard layout and cooling system are clear to see. My personal concerns lie in routing the power cable to the port under the cooling unit, and lack of SATA, but it appears to be quite the engineering showcase. Cramming dual Opteron into such a form factor is impressive, the Opteron itself lending the largest helping hand to such a design, it's thermal characteristics making it possible."
"We've been seeing more and more big-name case manufacturers coming out with pre-modded cases targeted towards the gaming crowd during the past year. CasEdge Inc, a subsidiary of the Foxconn Group, is releasing the new Chimaera enclosure on the heels of their popular Diabolic Minotaur gaming case."
"The second major advance is that of increasing the wireless range by including a repeating function to the DWL-900AP /DWL-800AP products. To enable this function the user needs to log into the Access Point and set it to repeating mode. This only works with other AirPlus products, but it can more than double the effective wireless range. In large houses, or places with thick walls, this can prove to be a lifesaver! The user just needs to take their laptop and find the very edge of their wireless range (when the signal goes to "Poor"). Simply place the AP near that spot and plug it in, and it will act as a repeater for your network."
That is all at the moment folks, I am sure you will see me later tonight :) - Cheers
