Good evening everyone, how was your day?  Mine was fairly uneventful, just your typical Monday at work.  Tonight, the GF and I managed to find some mutual time off and decided a nice quiet dinner was in order.  So, with a belly full of good eats and an inbox packed with gold, I think tonight is going to end on a mellow note.   Here is your nightcap.  PowerColor Radeon 9600SE @ Legion Hardware "It is hard to accept a product like the PowerColor Radeon 9600SE and it's even more difficult to give it a fair review.

Corsair's XMS (Xtreme Memory Speed) memory modules have long been a favorite amongst the enthusiast community. Corsair has memory kits available in many different sizes and speeds, and all of them are regarded as some of the best modules available in their respective categories.  Unfortunately, with the demise of Winbond's BH5/BH6 chips, low-latency memory kits from Corsair (and other manufactures) virtually disappeared.  Low-latency memory offers better overall performance than similarly clocked memory with higher latencies.  Chips capable of much higher clock speeds quickly surfaced, but true low-latency memory was very tough to come by - until now.  Today on HotHardware,...

Good morning all.  It looks like my desktop troubles are over.  Man, it has been a long time since I've had problems with any of my machines and I hope this is the last of it for a while.  There's nothing like a reformat once in a while to clean things up, but I was try to hold out for SP-2.  Guess that wasn't in the cards.  Anyhow, now I can get back to being productive on the review and news fronts.  Speaking of news...

Good morning, is everyone doing okay?  I sure hope so!  Unfortunately, I was unable to jump on the editor yesterday due to Fathers Day celebrations with two sets of families.  But, I would like to take this time to personally wish all the Dad's out there a belated Happy Fathers Day.  With a few of HH's very own sporting crumb-snatchers, and maybe a few in the not so distant future (going to get beat for that), I surely know the compassion that these guys put forth year round.  Davo for example.  Besides running the show around here, he has an intensive day job.  *Shakes Head* I don't know how that boy can work two jobs, take TKD, coach a team and still...

Good morning everyone :)  Sorry to cut this short but, I am running extremely lean on time today.  So, without further ado, here is your morning shot of juice... Albatron PX875P Pro @ Viper Lair "With the exception of the lack of RAID, 10/100 networking, and a passive North Bridge cooler, it's tough to ignore the performance and stability of the PX875P Pro. If you're in the market for a Pentium 4 motherboard, and don't need all the frills some high-end boards may provide, this board is certainly worthy of being on your short-list given its cost."

Hey gang, JeffB ringing in the weekend with the Friday morning news.  It's funny, since I've relocated to North Carolina and decided to work from home, weekends and holidays don't mean so much anymore.  I used to look forward to the weekend, and long weekends like Memorial Day, and now it really doesn't matter anymore.  Takes a little getting used to, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  Well, enough of my babble, let's get this show on the road: Review of the Belkin TuneDok Car Holder for the iPod @ WhiningDog.net: "With the TuneDok in place, the iPod looks right at home inside your car.

Good morning friends, welcome back to HotHardware :)  Things around the Northern part of the HH labs were fairly quiet this weekend.  My GF took off camping for two days so I was left home alone.  Needless to say, I took the opportunity to party it up with the boys ;)  Anyhow, lets get down to business so I can pop a few pills and get some work done...
