Gigabyte GA-K8VT800 Pro, Mentor HSMT-UD headphones, and more!
Hey everyone! So here I am, posting the news on a friday night. Nerd, or dedicated news jockey? A little bit of both actually ;) Seriously though, I'm heading out in a few minutes so I've got to do this fast. Let's get it on!
"I first listened to music and then watched a couple of action DVD movies with the Mentor HSMT-UD headphones and thought they sounded great. I really noticed the difference when I used them to play games. I first tried them with Battlefield 1942 and found it much easier to tell which direction I was taking fire from..."
"When you get to the point where you've seen just about every gadget you could imagine, sometimes you find something new that is so exciting yet so simple. The X-Connect PSU in itself looks like it would be a very attractive and overall high quality PSU, but the great thing about it is the fact that all of the cables are detachable. Instead of having to take your newly installed PSU and rack your brain over how to hide the rats nest of wires and unused connectors, you can just leave them in the box."
"Zalman is a company who's had plenty of experience in making CPU coolers, and is regarded highly in the Computer Market today. Its past history stems back to Socket 370 CPU coolers (Pentium 3) and definitely knows its stuff. For its recent products it's changed the installation method, so it is now easier to attach this beast to your beloved electronic investment."
"Akasa, while not the original manufacturers of the chassis, have worked with the original creators to tweak it just as they like it, engineering out any initial flaws they saw and paying close attention to the smaller details and the wider cooling performance. The width of the chassis and its modular nature afford you excellent thermal performance and ease of use. It's stylish too, the all-black aesthetic tickling my fancy."
"VIA's K8T800 Pro chipset powers the most popular Socket 754 boards on the market and when that core logic was released, it was no surprise to see the major Tier-I and Tier-II board vendors update any K8T800 designs they had, using V-Map flexibility to just drop the new ASICs in (for the most part). Gigabyte is one such vendor."
"LIUtilities may have just created a piece of software that is far and above one of the coolest utilities that this reviewer has seen. At first glance you think to yourself, OH BOY just what the Windows world needed a Task Manager. Well think again, WinTasks does more than just show you what processes are running on your computer. WinTasks allows you to do many of the things that the normal Task Manager included in Windows does plus more."
