Hey folks, sorry for the long time between updates, I've had a little trouble with the news posting feature, but it's all sorted out now :) My wireless router just kicked the bucket, so looks like I've got to go to the store tomorrow and get another one... and I should probably also get to work on my X-Mas shopping(have you?). On with the news... X-Micro WLAN 11g Router and PCMCIA Card @ A True Review "Nowadays, it is not uncommon for a home to have more than one computer; whether it be multiple desktops or a laptop thrown in the mix. With multiple computers comes a need to network them. Network equipment has come along way since the relative low speeds of 10baseT Ethernet. These days network... Read more...
Well folks, it's time for me to do my first all game info news post. Over time, I assure you it will get better... I may possibly add a small graphic banner to distinguish it from the normal news posts, and maybe a few other things. But for now, I'll just post what interesting bits I've found. If you have any suggestions on what you think would make it better, make sure to send me an E-Mail! Square Enix working on 'new brand concept' "Called "Code Age", whatever it is, Square Enix considers it a "new concept brand" and doesn't specify any platforms or specific games, leading to speculation that it will be exploited across multiple forms of media - much as the company's...

Good morning folks!  Happy Post Thanksgiving to all our State side friends.  In typical holiday fashion, I managed to eat so much food I still feel full the next morning.  We had one heck of a spread including a 25LB turkey and all the sides you could imagine.  What was more amazing was that for some reason, the turkey didn't make me sleepy at all.  In fact, I was wide awake the whole night, staring at the ceiling wondering if the triptophan would ever kick in.  Sadly, it didn't.  So it's lots of coffee for me this AM followed by a late afternoon nap for sure. I hope the rest of you had a good time with the one's you love, as that is what Thanksgiving is all... Read more...
Oh no, my right ear has been blocked for the past three days... this may be the beginning of an ear infection :( After this post I'm off to Google to search for some sinus pressure remedies. Hey! Did anyone else see the video of that fight at the Pistons/Pacers game? It took security forever to get that thing under control. If anyone knows where I can find the video, send me an E-Mail! Saitek PC Gaming Keyboard Review @ 3DX "In my opinion this Keyboard is the best Keyboard on the market and if you are a gamer the blue backlighting is just the icing on the cake."

Good morning friends :)  Well, today is the day; the day in which Half-Life 2 is officially launched.  Myself, I have the Collectors Edition currently installing in the background and personally, I have never be so excited about a game.  After nearly six years of waiting, I am very eager to see how Gordon is going to get out his current mess.  Nonetheless, the news bin is filling up and it is getting late.  Here is your AM shot...  HTPCnews.com Mobo Review: Chaintech VNF3-250 nForce3 250 "For those of you looking for a budget board to run the latest and greatest AMD A64 chips on, we've got one up for review that you very well might be interested in.

I just got home and let me tell you... it's hard trying to teach someone, who thinks AOL is the Internet, to actively protect themselves against spyware ;) It's almost as fun as explaining that pop-ups that say "You have a virus, Click Here!!!!1!", might not be telling the truth! Enough of that, it's news time... ATI X800 Pro Video Card Review @ CoolTechZone "NVIDIA is back in the market with full force and ATI is slowly taking the back seat in few of its product lines, namely it's mid-end graphics card lines. We have evaluated NVIDIA's 6800 graphics cards previously and have been quite impressed with the overall performance. This time, however, we have changed tracks and will... Read more...
Hey! I think my internet is working now. You know what that means? More news for you! Anyway, for your nightly news fix, we've a got Home Theater article from eCoustics, Logisys UV Reactive Molex Sleeve Kit from LAN Addict, and as usual... a little more. After this i'm going straight to bed, so goodnight! Home Theater Article @ eCoustics.com "Instructions on getting good bass from a subwoofer in any given room usually begin by suggesting corner placement of the subwoofer. And it's true: placing the subwoofer in a corner will equally energize all the room's resonances and maximize the subwoofer's output. However, one of the more bizarre aspects of how subwoofers couple with the specific dimensions... Read more...
Good afternoon folks, and man is it cold today! I'm sure snow isn't far behind now that it's November. As much as my body hates the cold, my computer is loving it :) I can't think of a more cost-effective cooling solution than just opening a window. As for the news right now, we have some interesting articles for you, including a contest from Corsair that you should certainly check out. Adios for now! Corsair 4GB PC3200XL Memory Giveaway! @ CoolTechZone "Corsair and CoolTechZone proudly partners together to bring you one of the largest appreciation contests in the industry. We, Corsair and CoolTechZone, would like to take a moment and thank our consumership and readership that has supported... Read more...
Anyone up for some late night news? For the insomniac in you, we have reviews for products from Thermaltake, MSI, RaidMax, and Altec Lansing. I'd like to chat more, but as my vision becomes a little blurrier, I realize I probably should get some sleep, so good night :) Thermaltake Fanless 103 @ Phoronix "Large heatsinks are quite a hit these days, and the Fanless 103 from Thermaltake is no exception. In fact, it's so big that we just had to nickname it "Big Blue." The largest question we have for Big Blue is: can it in fact take the pressure that other heatsinks with fans can handle, or will it slip into the background to be slowly forgotten like the real Big Blue?" MSI 915P... Read more...
Good evening everyone, how was the work day?  Nothing to exciting happened at my end of the world this afternoon.  I did however place an order for some new hardware from FrozenCPU at lunch time.  The bad thing is that it got me thinking about setting up a new liquid cooling system... If anyone has any suggestions for a good setup for an AMD64 system, drop me a line....

Finally, it's over. The Red Sox made history last night with their amazing march to, and through, the World Series. After sending the Yankees back home with a 4 game come back, they just kept on winning, shutting out the Cardinals in 4 games. I'm not a big baseball fan, but you have to respect that. These guys dug deep and did the unthinkable, over and over and over. There is some good Mojo hanging over Massachusetts lately, now it's the Patriots turn to keep the winning streak alive. Enough sports talk from me, here is your news for this AM! Raidmax Samurai ATX Gaming Case Review @ BigBruin.Com: "In essence what Raidmax did was to take a plain square case and screw plastic panels and shells... Read more...
Good Evening HotHardware fans! Just in case you've missed the link at the top of the page, I wanted to let you all know that we've just posted a shoot-out between two 1GB DDR2-675 capable memory kits, Corsair's TWIN2X1024-5400C4PRO and Kingston's KHX5400D2K2/1G. We ran some tests at stock settings, with more aggressive 3-3-3-10 timings, and at their highest stable overclocked speeds. Click here and see which kit came out on top...... Read more...
              With the launch of their 900 series chipsets, and LGA775 based Pentium 4 processors, Intel introduced the use of DDR2 system memory on the desktop.  DDR1 system memory had been the standard for quite a few years, and DDR2 memory had been used on the occasional video card at that point, but DDR2 system memory had yet to be implemented in a consumer level desktop computer.  DDR1 and DDR2 memory are fundamentally very similar.  In essence, DDR2 memory is simply a refinement of the original, however, there are some differences that set them apart.  For example, DDR2 memory requires much less voltage...

Good evening friends, welcome back.  With all the sports talk today, I feel the need to round off the mix by touching on the most important sport of all, Hockey (I can already feel the heat from e-mails already).  With the NHL Blackout now peaking over the one month mark, this editor is getting tired of the Hockey Night in Canada feature being the Owners vs. Players.  Though I can see both sides of the argument, I sure hope an agreement is reached shortly so the pucks can start dropping.  Unfortunately, from the live chat which NHL commissioner Gary Bettman held a few days back, it looks like neither side wants to make the first step in beginning negotiations.  Personally,...

Hello everyone, how is your day going?  With a cold weather front hitting the Canadian portion of the HH labs, I have a feeling my good friend Mr. Coffee will be getting an extra large workout today.  The news front seems to be moving at a fairly steady rate, so there should be tons of goodies heading your way today....  SilverStone TJ04 case review @ OCModShop "The profile picture below of the case shows how nice it looks and precise diamond cut edge that reflected from the flash. The back of the case features an exhaust which can accommodate an 80mm, 92mm, or 120mm fan. The first thing that came to my mind when seeing the possibility of easily adding a 120mm fan was watercooling.... Read more...
Good evening brothers and sisters, welcome back :)  The day is coming to a close and the HH news-bin is busting at the seams.  However, before I jump over to the news front, I want to point out that Jeff recently posted his review of S3's OmniChrome TV/Graphics Card, their competitor to ATi's All-In-Wonder and NVIDIA's Personal Cinema line of products.  Take a few minutes and check it out before you scroll down to the news... Corsair Announces 550 MHz CAS2.5 DDR Modules Fremont, CA, October 20, 2004: Corsair Memory, Inc., a global leader in ultra-performance DDR memory modules for PC gamers and enthusiasts, today announced their fastest ever DDR memory module, a DDR550 module that...

Good morning friends, welcome back to HotHardware.  I am pretty short on time this morning, so we are going to cut the chit-chat to a minimum.  However, this does not mean we are going to skimp on the news... ;)  Corsair TWIN2X1024-5400C4PRO @ Viper Lair "Corsair has earned a reputation as makers of fast and reliable ram, and this tradition continues from past ram formats and into DDR-2. While not earth shattering, performance-wise today, DDR-2 is forward thinking as Intel scales their clock speeds, and the TWIN2X Pro Series is up to the task."  Etymotic ER-6 Isolator Earphones Review @ CoolTechZone "Audiophiles want not only the best speaker sets, but also...

Judging by the amount of "you have mail" notifications I have received over the past few hours, I think it is time for another shot of juice.  So, run over to the water cooler, grab a cold drink and shut the cubical door.  It is time for round two...  Chaintech SK8T800 Review @ AMD Zone "Well the big plus of the Chaintech is of course the low price.  Stability of the board was also good, and you get SATA RAID, 5.1 channel audio, and built in Ethernet as a part of the package.  You wouldn't see those options at this price point a year ago."  ATI TV Wonder USB 2.0 Review @ Beyond3D "Internally the we can clearly see TV Wonder USB 2.0 uses the...

Good evening friends, I am glad to see you are back :)  It looks as if fall has arrived here in the Canadian portion of the HH labs.  With a small amount of frost on the grass this morning, the leaves should soon be hitting the ground very shortly.  Though raking is not my favourite job, I surely enjoy the fantastic visuals that come along with this season.    NZXT Guardian Case Review @ ExtensionTech.net "Having seen a NZXT Guardian case previous to the influx of reviews on the internet, I quickly contacted NZXT for a review sample. I was excited, because I had not seen anything quite like this before. Being a reviewer, I noticed a few slight flaws right away, but... Read more...
Welcome back HotHardware fans!  Considering it has only been a few hours since my last post, things have been busy.  After checking the new mailbox, I was greeted with quite a few noteworthy items.  Here's what we've got so far...  Sapphire Toxic X800 PRO VIVO Review @ Beyond3D: "Beyond the cooling system, and the obvious PCB colour change, the rest of the board appears to adhere to the ATI reference design. Removing the heatsink from the board reveals Samsung 1.6ns GDDR3 RAM, which should be capable of a maximum operating speed of 600MHz, which well beyond the rates that even the "APE" overclocking runs it at."  Hitachi 57S700 HDTV @ DesignTechnica:...

Hey gang, JeffB here for your Thursday morning news fix.  It's the same story here, we're all loaded up with hardware, cranking away for your entertainment.  The best part is the stuff just keeps coming, so there is no slowdown in sight.  On a side note, have you guys been paying attention to the BigWop?  We need you to jump into the Folding frenzy and put your PC to good use.  You can help save lives with a little effort.  I myself was a hold out for a long time, being somewhat of a PC purist, but I've seen the light and have been folding away.  You can too, just visit our Folding Forum to find out how!

Good afternoon folks!  How is everyone doing today?  I take it you're all doing well.  We're all doing fine too.  Things here in the New York HH labs have been fairly busy recently, but that's just the way we like it!  Better to have too much hardware on the test-bench, than not enough, right? :)  While we're here cranking out the benchmarks, what do you say we hook you up with some hardware news?  I thought you'd like that...  Silverstone SST-FP54 VFD Display Review @ Short-Media.Com: "VFD displays are yet another popular add-on to the computer.
