Hello and good evening to all :) In the news tonight, Madshrimps has taken a shot at overclocking the Pentium M (Dothan) using DFI's 855GME-MGF. In addition to that, we also have reviews for the Dell Ispiron 700M Notebook, Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI motherboard, and the Sunbeam Chameleon case. Enjoy!
"One of Intel's latest CPU runs at 1.6ghz, no there is no typo here, the Pentium M normally intended for laptops have been given a chance to shine in desktop systems also with the help of resourceful motherboard manufactures. We take a closer look at DFI's offering to see how far we overclock this new "Dothan" CPU."
"The 700m has a look that's a little bit different, a little more elegant, than most Dell. Gone are the dull blues and grays, and we are left with a case that resembles the slightly battered offspring of a Powerbook and an iBook. Considering the aesthetic beauty and simplicity of those two Apple machines, it's a vast improvement for the Dell design team."
"We had some pretty good success with the overclocking on the Gigabyte board. Dropping the HT bus to 3x, we managed to hit 277 on the FSB speed before the K8NXP-SLI begged for mercy. Attempts to move the FSB any higher would result in Prime95 errors within about 15 minutes."
"Everyone knows that having PC lights in your custom case gives it a high-tech and clean look. The only problem with that is most neon lights and LEDs are single colored. Of course you could make your own color switch but why bother? Chameleon comes to the rescue. So you want red on Monday and purpule the following day? No problem, I will illustrate how easy it is to do just that!"
