"Sold under the Crucial Ballistix name, this pair of 512MB PC4000 DDR modules have been well received by the enthusiast community. The 184 pin (unbuffered, non ECC) DDR DIMMs are dual channel compatible and have a default rated speed of 250 MHz, or PC4000. Default timings are very conservative at 3-4-4-8. To reach an overclocked speed of 250 MHz, the memory is rated for use with voltages as high as 2.8V."

"A couple of days ago nVidia released their much talked about ForceWare Release 80 graphics card driver to the world.

We examine the drivers in our typical fashion against the last official release driver, ForceWare 78.01."
"Today we revisit MCT-5 in particular and it's effectiveness in a real world environment. Be forewarned, what your about to see isn't pretty and may have long term traumatic effects on those whom love their graphic cards. Remove the children from the room, put on your Goulashes and pour yourself a strong one"
"In the VapoChill Micro we can notice a few distinct and interesting design changes over the traditional heat pipe sink, the first and most obvious of these changes is the size of the heat pipes."
