Good morning all.  It looks like we have a few more last pushes of reviews before the holidays kick in.  Did you get all of your shopping done?  All I can say is thank God for Amazon.  My total time spent in the mall shopping this year was less than 2 hrs and even that wasn't too terrible.  Now I just need to prepare for all the extra eating that comes along with package.  This morning we have a few tid-bits for you, so let's jump into it...  Matrix Orbital MX222 LCD Kit @ Bjorn3D: "Case mods have gone from being a simple fad to an all out competition between friends, foes, and everyone in between.

Good morning all, it's time for your Friday news post.  World Series fever is running rampant through the HH labs these days.  The rivalry is especially hot with Rob and Dave, Rob being the Yankees fan and Dave being the BoSox guy.  Lots of trash talking going back and forth for a while there, but all in good fun.  So far the Yanks are on top 2-0, but I wouldn't count the Sox out just yet.  Tonight the games resume and if the Red Sox pull a win, Dave's mouth is sure to run wild.  Even if you're not a baseball fan, like me, it's hard to ignore such a well known rivarly.  With the Yanks holding a 2 game lead, it's too soon to say who's going to make it to the...

Hey folks! It's Friday and most are getting set for a little R&R this weekend. Sadly, that will not be the case with most of the guys here at HH. We've got a lot of hardware to review and I myself have a piece slated for early next week that you're sure to like. So it's going to be busy for us, but that's what we're here for! Abit's AV8 motherboard @ The Tech Report: "With all the must-have integrated peripherals, a working AGP/PCI lock, a sub-$110 price tag, and a BIOS laden with tweaking and overclocking options, the AV8 has the potential to be the ultimate Athlon 64 overclocking platform. Let's see if it delivers. " Thermaltake TWV480 Total Watts Viewer Power Supply @ BigBruin.com:... Read more...
Good morning friends, I am glad to see you are back :)  Things around the HH lab are shaping up to be a busy day.  With most of the team grinding away on their respective reviews I am sure the Mr. Coffee is going to get a through workout today.  Speaking of which, go grab a cup of joe and settle in.  Here is your AM shot...  ABIT AV8Pro Motherboard Review @ HardOCP.com "ABIT did a masterful job in designing and implementing the AV8, making a very solid foundational board with which to launch their socket 939 based offerings. The board's stability and performance was top notch across all the benchmarks, and it seemed to give a decent level of overclocking as well."... Read more...

Meaning that it has the same features and specifications as the Ultra, but is slightly slower in core and memory clock speeds. However, this won't stop most gamers from overclocking... Read more...
Good morning everyone, NJ here with another edition of the HH times.  With a few not so pleasant incidents over the weekend, the HH team was not in the best mindset.  So, in hopes of starting the work week off right, I have a XL dose of juice for all of us.  Here is your AM shot... Western Digital Raptor 74GB SATA 10,000RPM HDD @ SystemCooling "The main barrier that hard drives face is that as opposed to other computer hardware they are still mechanical. Motors, platters, actuator arms and other components, all packed together in a small housing and asked to work in perfect harmony. To increase hard drive performance the answer is simple, increase the RPM (revolutions per... Read more...
Good afternoon friends, N.J. here with another shot of Juice.  Things around the Canadian portion of the HH labs have been extremely hectic over the past few days.  With good things brewing at the day job and a GF dealing with a serious case of allergies, I have been stretched fairly thin.  However, there is always time to hook up my brothers and sisters with some juice...

Auravision's EluminX Keyboard Illuminating technology "Burned in" by Robert Maloney July 30th, 2003 While we here at HotHardware have written countless articles on motherboards, video cards, and the like, we haven't often found the time or reason to comment on one piece of everyone's setup, the keyboard.   For the most part, keyboards and mice get the short thrift by most users.  We know we need them (in fact, we couldn't really do anything without them) but they are often an afterthought.  However, as more and more people are customizing their computers, every individual piece of hardware starts to come under consideration. When in comes to keyboards, Microsoft... Read more...
Asus V9280S Geforce 4 Ti4200 A Ti4200, or something more? By - Robert Maloney January 22, 2003 Marketing -  simply defined as the process of bringing a product to market.  Tim Cohn, on www.marketingprinciples.com, describes marketing as "to find out what your customers want and then give it to them."  Sometimes it can make or break a product.  A manufacturer can produce all of the hardware they want based on the latest technologies, but to get the sale they must find a way to differentiate their product from the rest of the pack. There are just too many companies that, for better or worse, are providing the same item.  So, what can a company do to satisfy the... Read more...
nVIDIA's "Cg" Language An Interview With David Kirk, Chief Scientist - NVIDIA Corp What's on the horizon for next generation graphics By Dave Altavilla 6/14/02   The 3D Graphics arena is getting a little bit more interesting these days.  The competition is heating back up in a big way, with a host of players looking to challenge the omnipotent 3D Graphics Giant, NVIDIA.  With 6 month design cycles for next generation products, NVIDIA looked as though it was hell-bent on world domination.  Some competitors were either exiting the high end consumer space or going belly-up altogether.  Certainly for a while there, NVIDIA was almost showing "Microsoft-like" ...

  Shuttle's AV40 VIA P4X266 DDR P4 Motherboard RAMBUS, watch your back, DDR comes to the P4 By, Dave Altavilla October 15, 2001 Here's a vocabulary word for you, "litigious".  Good one isn't it?  Before you get nervous that this is some sort of creative writing lesson, let me explain, as this word is very fitting for this article.  Stemming from the root word "litigate", a synonym for the word litigious would be "controversial".  As you are aware, "litigate" speaks of legal actions and law suits.  By now I think you see where I am going here.  The company RAMBUS and the DRAM technology it invented, has been a huge source...

The ECS P4VXAD -Vs.- The Azza P4X2-AV Battle of the VIA P4X266s! By, Marco Chiappetta November 29, 2001 Intel and VIA are entangled in a nasty legal battle, and because of this, VIA's P4X266 Pentium 4 chipset has been surrounded by much controversy.  Intel is trying to stop the distribution of the P4X266 because they claim VIA is not licensed to use some of their technology, while VIA alleges all of the licenses they need to manufacture this chipset were obtained when they purchased S3.  All of the legal matters surrounding VIA's chipset have prevented some manufacturers from embracing the P4X266.  Dave took a look at a P4X266 board from Shuttle a few weeks back, but other than...

Shuttle's AV30 VIA Apollo Pro 266 DDR Motherboard With a Dash of Crucial PC1600 DDR RAM... By Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta 2/8/2001   The motherboard market is about to go through yet another large transition...maybe. In the year 2000 we saw the once omni-present, dominant Intel take a few too many punches on the chin, and they ended up losing a ton of ground in the motherboard chipset market. AMD's Athlon was selling in droves, and one company especially, VIA Technologies, took advantage and met the demand with a whole line of chipsets to compliment AMD's CPU. VIA also took full advantage of the void left in the Intel Pentium III motherboard market when the i820 turned off power-users... Read more...
Shuttle AV14 Socket 370 Motherboard It's does everything right...but nothing great. By, Marco ?BigWop? Chiappetta 10 / 12 / 2000    My first assignment when I initially joined the Hot Hardware team was to review a VIA Apollo Pro 133 based board, the AV61 from Shuttle Inc. I was very excited to get my hands on this product, because at that time the 440BX had already been available for quite a while and was lacking some of the features the Apollo 133 brought to the table. I wasn't very familiar with Shuttle products so I was also intrigued by the opportunity to test hardware from another company. The AV61 has been through a few revisions and has evolved into the board we are looking at... Read more...
The past couple of days I?ve had a chance to get familiar with Shuttle?s new AV61 motherboard based on the VIA 133 chipset.  I hit a few speed bumps along the way, but ended up pleased.  This board has a strong list of features, at a fantastic price point, so if your itching to replace your BX mobo, and the i820/RAMBUS combo is too pricey; this is definitely worth a look. AV61 Specifications / Features VIA Apollo Pro133 vintage CPU Support (Slot 1) Pentium III/II processors: 266 ? 733+mhz Celeron processors: 266 ? 533mhz Chipset VIA VT82C693A VIA VT82C596B WinBond W83977EF-AW   Memory Support 3 SDRAM DIMMs  (3.3v, 768mb Max - PC66, PC100 and PC133) Jumperless or Jumpered CPU...

Transcend's  AVE3 Socket 370 Motherboard A newcomer makes a splash By, Marco ?BigWop? Chiappetta June 7, 2000    There are a lot of heavy hitters in the motherboard market right now.  Companies like Asus, Soyo, Tyan and Abit, among others, are always thought of first when it?s upgrade time.  Times change though, and today we?ll take a look at a board from someone relatively new in the motherboard arena, Transcend Information Inc.  The company was founded in 1988 and generally focused on memory modules prior to manufacturing motherboards.  The Transcend AVE3 is not the first motherboard they have delivered to the market however.  They actually have a full...
