Hey everyone, as my first news post I'd like to remind you all it's November 2nd, so if you haven't already, get registered to vote and support your candidate! But that's politics, and I know why your really here, so get ready for your mid-afternoon fix of tech news.  Thermaltake Tsunami Dream Case @ PimpRig.com "If it weren't for the lights it would be difficult to know the case was on. Yes, that is how silent it is. What more could you want? Looks, performance, and silence..."  RaidMax Cobra Gaming Case @ ViperLair.com "Cooling is very well done, but we think they could have substituted the sheer number of 80mm fan options with fewer larger fans. While the cooling is... Read more...

  Choosing a recordable DVD drive has always been somewhat of a difficult task.  There was a bit of initial uncertainty as some wondered which format would win out, DVD+R or DVD–R.  After all, each format has its advantages.  In the end, however, unlike the Beta vs VHS battles of the early 80s, this war was quelled as OEMs moved quickly to offer both capabilities with Dual Format drives. Today, we have another addition to the mix with the long awaited arrival of Dual Layer recordable DVDs.  This iteration of writable media supports a full 8.5GB of storage capacity.  And unlike previous market evolutions, Dual Layer DVD drives have entered the market at very...

Good morning peeps, how was your night?  Things around the Canadian portion of the HH labs should be backup and running this the afternoon with the return of my High-Speed connection.  No more dialup for this fool ;)  Nevertheless, it is getting late and I need to start thinking about heading to work so here is your AM news shot... 10,118 Points!! ASUS nForce4, SLI Motherboard Shatters 3DMark05 Record Oct 22, 2004- The ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard set a new 3Dmark05 record with a stunning 10,118 points during the recent Nvidia nForce4 launch conference.

Good morning all!  Man, last night was a tense evening around the HH labs.  With the Yankees "blowing it" and the Red Sox making history, emotions were high.  Needless to say, Yankees fans are pretty cranky and Davo, our lone Sox fan, (correction Jeff, Tom is one too!) is laughing all the way home.  It was fun to watch, even for a non-fan like myself, but after the Sox put up 8 runs, I knew it was time to call it a night.  Oh well, at least NY still has two football teams doing really good right now. Heck, the Jets are undefeated! Who would've guessed that one?!?!  (want to put some money on the Pats/Jets game this weekend? ;) ) Anyhow, here is your news... Read more...
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 Folks! BW here, stopping by to let you know that we've just posted a new review of Asus' K8N-E Deluxe Socket 754 motherboard. This board, which is based on the NVIDIA nForce 3 250Gb chipset, sports a very complete BIOS and host of useful integrated features. Click here and check it out!    ... Read more...
  Although AMD's socket 939 platform has moved into the mainstream with the recent release of 939-pin Athlon 64 3000+ and 3200+ CPUs, products based on the older socket 754 platform are still in demand.  While the new socket 939 processors have been met with much fanfare (and relatively high price tags), the older socket 754 Athlon 64s have proven to be a solid processor.  And now that lower-speed socket 939 processors have begun to arrive, the older design has started to drop in price, and socket 754 processors have become much more affordable. While socket 754 will eventually fade away at some point in the future, there is currently no sign that demand has waned.  OEMs are... Read more...
Good morning all.  Asus starts our day off right, here at HotHardware.com, with a new high end GeForce 6800 Ultra card that really calls attention to itself.  Asus' V9999 Ultra Deluxe is a GeForce 6800 Ultra with style, flare, a great bundle and the icing on the cake, a stock out-of-the-box overclock in its GPU. Come get some - right here.... Read more...
It seems that high-end graphics cards are always in the lime light upon the initial launch of a new graphics processor architecture from any of the major players.  Although there's a limited number of potential consumers, relatively speaking, for these flagship enthusiat-class boards, they pave the way for their more modestly priced siblings, in terms of setting the standard for the base GPU architecture and how it performs versus the competition.  We're sure many of you wouldn't think of dropping over $500 for an uber-class 3D card like a GeForce 6800 Ultra Extreme Edition or Radeon X800 XT Premium Edition, but there are some who will spare no expense, and these cream-of-the-crop video...

Good morning friends, welcome back to HH.  With a cold and rainy day outside, today is a perfect excuse for huddling around the warmth of my computers.  With an AMD on one side and a P4 on the other, I think I am well situated for the day ;)  Here is your AM shot of juice...  Asus P5GD2 Deluxe review @ OCMod Shop "Because this motherboard has so many overclocking features I could tell from the start that things were going to go well. I decided to overclock normally by choosing the standard overclocking option and adjusting the FSB and voltage. After increasing the FSB and adding more voltage as needed my final result was a FSB of 265 taking my 2.8GHz P4 to 3.7GHz! With this... Read more...
Good evening folks!  Just in case you're the type who scrolls down right to the news, we want to let you know that we've just posted a new article comparing two affordably priced PCI Express graphics cards, the Asus Extreme AX600XT and the MSI GeForce PCX 5750. Click here to check it out......

  With much anticipation and fanfare, the next generation in video card interface has arrived.  PCI Express, the successor to AGP, is now available on a number of Intel-based boards starting with the 900 series chipset.  VIA, SiS, and others are sure to follow in the coming months. It's still uncertain when the other OEM solutions will come out with PCI-E (not to be confused with PCI-X), but regardless of potential delays, PCI-E will be universal sooner than later. The potential benefits of PCI-E over AGP are dramatic, offering peak bandwidth of 4GBps (8GB concurrent), which more than doubles that of AGP 8X.  Initially, PCI-E appeared on the high-end of the scale with...

Good morning folks!  Today is definitely much busier on the news front than yesterday.  I've only been away from the keyboard for a few hours (ie sleeping), and the news box is loaded with good stuff.  I'm going to get right down to business and get it posted because I've got some benchmarking to do.  The FedEx man was good to us today...
