Jetart Xcool Laptop Cooler, Gigabyte Router and Others
Good evening friends, welcome back to HH. With most people enjoying the long weekend (US and Canadian alike), the news front has been dreadfully slow. However, we managed to scrape-up a few tasty morsels for you to sink your teeth into. So, grab a drink and pull up your chair; here is your evening nightcap...
"Although laptop coolers are nothing new to the enthusiast market, one would question the real necessity of them. I mean, if your laptop would get too hot, the whole 4 or 5 real manufacturers of laptops would catch that, and put in better cooling, right? But one could say that a cooler system will last longer, and perhaps be not as prone to crashes and lock-ups. Back on track here, this cooler is very unique in a few ways; it has a 4 port USB 2.0 Hub, adjustable fan speed, and it's AC powered!"
"With a host of advanced features, Gigabyte's B49GU is a SOHO router with a lot of promise for business users. Unfortunately, its lack of quality documentation and its issue with wireless dropouts and a general lack of wireless speed make it a less than stellar performer."
"Therefore unlike most manufacturers who offer the same 915P and 925X motherboards with a price difference, DFI have made it easier to justify spending more on their 925X motherboard. They have done this by shipping it with a feature enhanced package. The LanParty UT 915P-T12 on the other hand has had most of the traditional LanParty features removed, reducing the cost of the motherboard even further."
"The K8NS Pro felt every inch the solid Gigabyte mainboard that they're famous for. It didn't miss a beat during testing, BIOS operation was flawless and stability was excellent. After that, and given that the ASUS K8N-E is just as good at those things, it's the feature set that determines what you purchase for your Athlon 64 CPU these days, with performance being so derivative and tied to the CPU itself."
"Well at this point this demo brings a 6800U to knees if ran any higher than 1024x768 with 4xAA and 8xAF. I tried it with these settings and at 1280x1024 and it was a 12FPS slide show."
That's all I have at this point friends. I will see you back here in the AM :) - Cheers
