It's only been five months since Skyrim hit store shelves, but the amount of work done on the game by both Bethesda and an army of modders has been enormous. With the Creation Kit now in the wild for several months, we've rounded up some of the best mods available and brought them for your consideration. We'll also walk you through the modding process and how to get started. ProTip: If you re-map the "F" key in Skyrim's key bindings, the new key to assign a favorite is "A." This isn't explained or listed anywhere in game; we found it by accident. What Makes a Mod 'Must-Have? There are literally... Read more...
Bethesda Softworks released a one-two punch today; simultaneously debuting the Skyrim Creation Kit and a surprise -- new, high-resolution textures for its smash hit. The Creation Kit gives modders access to the same tools the game developers use for updating and creating Skyrim. The Creation Kit is integrated into the Steam Workshop--for those of you who missed the announcement a few weeks back, the Workshop is a community/distribution hub for user-created content. Modders working with the Creation Kit will be able to upload their projects to Steam for sharing with other users. As you can see,... Read more...
Customizing your rig or morphing it into a different form factor has become passe. Or so says Google Trends. We checked out a graph of searches on "case mods" over the last four years and found that lookups on the term dropped precipitously for no apparent reason.Here's the indisputable visual evidence:  Why did the interest in case modding slow down? It's hard to pinpoint, but perhaps the hobby of tinkerers and creative minds has returned to the underground. What do you think? Are case mods still hot or is the trend above an accurate indicator of interest in the topic?... Read more...

If your NVIDIA GeForce 6 or 7 series overclocking adventures haven't yielded the kind of results you had hoped, this guide on the AOA Forums may be of interest.  They outline the steps necessary to soft-mod the BIOS on many GeForce cards to increase the GPU's voltage using NiBiTor and nvFlash.  I've done this mod on a GeForce 7800 GT card with some success, but it's not going to work for everyone because some board partners already tweak their voltages to support increased clock speeds on factory overclocked cards. "Over-clockers are always looking for a way to squeeze... Read more...
The benefits of watercooling, without the risks? It's a big claim to make, and one VoyeruMods is willing to bet on. GruntvillE takes a look at PC Ice, a non-conductive coolant, which could soon be finding it's way into systems everywhere. "Previously you could find water-replacements and add-ins that would help with lubrication or corrosion, or even cooling. However, many of them are conductive, meaning that a leak in a system with them is just as dangerous as one in a pure water system.. Needless to say I was very interested to see if the PC...

Good morning all :)  Last night I decided that I should hit up the local shopping mall in hopes of finishing up the last of my Xmas shopping.  Thankfully I was able to get in and out in a short period of time.  I don't like crowds to begin with, but, there is nothing worse then a large crowd of people in the "Christmas sprit" shopping... *shudder* ;) Go grab a mug and pull up a chair.  Here is your first shot of juice for the day...  OCZ ModStream Power Supply Roundup @ CoolTechZone "There is a new trend that recently emerged in the world of power supplies,...

I just received a ASUS A7N8X-X, and after looking around in the bios, it has some pretty decent features. After building a few systems using variants of the A7N8X, I've come to really like the brand. The NF7 series from ABit is also one of my top choices for Athlon XP systems. I'm going to miss the times I've spent working with Athlon XP systems, but once I get my Athlon 64, I'm sure all that will change :) AVerMedia AVerTV USB 2.0 Plus @ HEXUS.net "Almost everything about the device is easy to use and set-up, which generally speaking makes it a joy to use.
