Wintec AMP-X PC2-5400 DDR2, Seagate Barracuda 400GB HD, and more!
Hey folks, how about this weather? Those in the northeast know what I mean... it hasn't be in the high 50's since what, September, October? Anyway, we've got some good items today, including new Hard Drive tech from Seagate and Intel, and a Athlon 64 3500+ overclocking adventure with PCstats. Also, April is almost here, so don't forget that HH will be at the Nor'Easter LAN on April 16-17.
"We're going to have a bit of fun with this chip today. We'll test how high our Athlon64 3500+ will overclock with air cooling, but we're also going to put the processor under the deep freeze to see how high it goes with a R404A modded Prometeia Mach I phase-change cooler."
"SkyHawk claims their PowerOne power supplies are ATX12V v2.0 and EPS12V 2.1 compliant. After further investigation Legit Reviews has come to the conclusion that the forementioned Power Supplies DO NOT meet the guidelines..."
"It seems Intel views DDR2 as the upgrade path for the best performance gains in conjunction with their newest, current and future processors. On the other hand, AMD continues to stay with DDR and may move up to DDR2 in the future since their processor requirements for memory are different with the memory controller on the die."
"I always look forward to receiving new hardware. This time I was especially stoked, because it's Seagate's new flagship drives that include their new technology, Native Command Queing (NCQ). Yes I did say "their new technology", because Seagate actually teamed up with Intel to develop NCQ."
"We have been speaking of Linux on the desktop in the past few articles. The home desktop presents many challenges, and we have seen how Linux and Open Source is rising to meet these. In this article, however, we will look at Linux implementations in the Business and the Government sector."
