Matrix Orbital LCD, Yeong Yang Case and Others
Good evening friends, how was your day? I just popped some pills that should help me kick this cold / sleep tonight. So, before I loose total coherence to the world around me, let's get the news posted. Here is your evening shot of juice...
"The MX422 is basically the LK204-24-USB LCD display mounted on a nice looking double 5-1/4" drive bay insert. The front has a brushed metal finish which is pretty typical in the nicer aluminum cases like the Cooler Master and the Lian Li. The rear of the unit looks a little confusing and has a lot packed on to it, but it is designed to allow easy access for plugging in the accessories and it is easier to figure out than it first appears."
"You may have heard of Yeong Yang but, like me, have no hands on experience with their products. In the pressed metal business since 1978, they began building PC chassis in 1990. A couple of years ago I saw a beautiful black cube server case that I have lusted after ever since. That's right, it was from Yeong Yang. Well, it's finally time to get up close and personal with one of their cases, the new YY-5601. The YY-5601 or "Cetus" is a mid-tower case with cooling and ease of use in mind. Let's take a look and see if it meets those goals."
"When you purchase RAM, you normally receive the sticks in a simple OEM anti-static bag or a plastic container. However, when purchasing Ultra Product's high-end modules, you now receive them in a mahogany box. Does this RAM really deserve to be packaged in such a pristine container, and can it compete with big name manufacturers like Corsair, Mushkin, and OCZ? At Phoronix we will be checking out the Ultra Dual Channel 1024MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz Memory (2 x 512MB) - Premium Wood Box."
"The new AIW will include an updated 'Identity' connector which can be used to attach the new stackable I/O modules. Instead of having to connect everything at once, or have two break-out boxes (one input, one output), ATI now gives you the best of both worlds. You can have only input, only output, or both clipped together. SCART output is also now an option for Europe, plus component output for use with TVs that support the connection."
Time for this guy to head to bed. Sleep well my friends. :) - Cheers
