Good morning HotHardware fans!  What a crazy couple of weeks, huh?  First the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra hits, and then just over two weeks later ATi plays their hand and unveils the X800 XT and X800 Pro.  On top of that, Rob got back from his honeymoon, Jeff moved to NC, we launched the new site and finished a couple of reviews in between!  I'm sure I speak for the rest of the crew when I say it feels like we've just finished running a marathon!  The good news is, there's still a lot of exciting stuff on the horizon - We're still tweaking the site, Intel and AMD will be bringing some good stuff to market shortly, and we hear some other graphics companies may have a treat...

Good morning everyone, I hope you survived the weekend.  Mine was pretty quite for a change, I just kicked around the house with the little lady.  However, next weekend is going to be a different story; between my GF's birthday and Mothers Day (yes, mothers day is this upcoming Sunday) I am going to be pretty strapped for time.  Now, only if I could figure out what to get them :(  Nevertheless, it is getting late so lets open up the mail sack and see what we can find... ATI All-In-Wonder 9600 XT @ Viper Lair "If you already have the AIW 9600 Pro, this isn't an essential upgrade. If you're in the market for a gaming/multimedia card, I would still lean towards the AIW 9600... Read more...
Good morning brothers and sisters :)  By taking a quick peek at my inbox, it looks like our local Juice-Fairy was very busy last night.  It is going to take me a little while to sort through this mess of news and spam; so, if you don't mind, we are going to get right down to business :) Cooler Master Hyper 6 P4/K8 Heatsink @ Systemcooling "It's been over two years since Cooler Master introduced their first heat pipe cooler, the HHC-001. In that time, manufacturers have gotten considerably more adept at implementing this technology, and the result is that there are now many effective heat pipe heatsinks on the market. Now, Cooler Master has introduced a new heat pipe cooler to the... Read more...
Hello all... I'm sure a few of you have found a few miscellaneous issues with the site here and there.  This is all part of the deal unfortunately.  The move of our static html site to a database driven engine and importing all our content in the process, is an enormous undertaking, as I'm sure you can imagine.  We currently have a few problems with getting the articles categorized in all the right places, a few broken links etc, small nagging stuff like that.   So as the saying goes, "pardon our appearance" during our renovations, we hope to have everything spiffed up real soon.  Please feel free to send me a note, if there is something that is particularly...

Welcome back friends :)  Sorry about the late start, I am still feeling under the weather and slept most of the day.  So, before it gets much later, let's get down to business... OCZ PC3500 Enhanced Bandwidth 1GB (512x2) Dual Channel Kit @ TheCrucible.ca "The EB technology is very effective. Overclocking results from these particular PC3500 sticks was very good. Reaching near PC4000 spec without changing the default timings is always a plus. OCZ has definitely built a lot of head room into this kit. The performance at 500Mhz is also the best we have ever seen. Out scoring anything we have tested prior to these. OCZ has a real winner with their enhanced bandwidth memory." 80mm... Read more...
Good afternoon friends :)  Things around the HH labs have been very hectic over the past few weeks.  Between weddings, moves and the launch of our new site, I think everyone is looking forward to a weekend of R&R (though some will undoubtedly not find it).  Nevertheless, before yours truly gets too comfortable on the back deck, let's get another round of juice served up :) PRESS RELEASE- ABIT Presents Fatal1ty 100 Shootout @ E304 Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C., April 23, 2004   As a world leader in high-performance motherboards and graphic cards, ABIT is proud to announce its new series of "Fatal1ty" motherboards and graphics cards. These new products are a part... Read more...
asetek Vapochill Extreme Edition How can cooling be such a hot topic? Written by: Robert Maloney September 29, 2003 What a better way to end the summer season then to write a review about CPU cooling, in this case about the latest Vapochill unit from asetek, the Vapochill XE.  For the uninitiated, asetek, based out of Denmark, has been producing the Vapochill line of CPU cooling units since 1997.  The technology behind these units is called Vapor Phase cooling, and although you may not know the name you should be quite familiar with its use.  That's because pretty much every refrigerator in the past century or so is based on the same principle.  In the Vapochill, heat from...

asetek WaterChill CPU Cooler Review Water Cooling for Pentium 4, Athlon XP, and Athlon 64 By: Chris Angelini August 25, 2003 When you hear one of your friends talk about a skydiving adventure, or even a bungee jump for that matter, do you tend to smile, nod, and think to yourself, "one of these days, buddy..."?  There is an element of danger inherent to every so-called extreme sport.  However, extreme, by its very nature, implies the sort of excitement you just can't experience mowing the lawn on a Saturday morning.  "Humans simply aren't meant to fly down mountains at 70 miles an hour on a skateboard, as they do in the Street Luge," you argue.  That doesn't...

  The Asetek Vapochill Vapor Phase Cooling System Taking the Pentium 4 To 3.3GHz And Beyond By, Dave Altavilla October 23, 2002 The last time we checked in with the folks at Asetek, back in July of 2000, we were working with the Pentium III at its highest core clock speed of 933MHz at the time.  The world of Personal Computing has changed dramatically since then and so has the Vapochill, Asetek's Vapor Phase Cooling System for Pentium 3/4 and Socket A Athlon platforms.  Back then, we were impressed with the capabilities of the unit but were set back a bit by its somewhat complicated and cumbersome setup and assembly process.  Regardless, once the product was properly setup,...

  The CDI Alaska Cool-Case Divine Intervention or Invention ?   There are three main problems that you'll need to solve with respect to your next computer case selection, accessibility, looks, and cooling/ventilation.  The folks at Computers Divine told us they have the solution.  They claim the "Alaska Cool-Case" is an answer to your prayers sent from the heavens above. Wow, what an intro.  We thought this sounded a little "over the top" too.  So we decided to get in a little piece of heaven to see what it looked and performed like.  This is the H.H. take on the Alaska Cool Case from CDI. Divine Intervention or just a cool invention? ... Read more...
 Hey folks! I have completed a VERY efficient cooling rig for my P!!!-450 ! This chip was sponsored by Dallas Memory You guys are the best! If you want a good deal on the fastest gear, go see these boys!   OK, so we all know that the stock Pentium !!! Heatsink and Fan that comes with the Retail CPU is absolutely inadequate for the job (my humble opinion of course). So, I set out to improve upon the situation. I wanted cool the CPU better with a bigger sink and fan combo and also help the cache chips make contact with the sink in the process! Let's dismantle (my favorite part) shall we? First -- we have to remove the clip on fan assembly. This is very easy to do. Just pull it off. If... Read more...
  Cooling The Cache ! Decapsulating the P2 and delivering a cool breeze over your cache!   I got a little bored Saturday night and decided to "pull a Kyle" on my Pentium 2-333. This was a serious leap of faith in that this processor already does 500+ Mhz. very stable on most BX motherboards. I really didn't have a lot of motive to try to cool my CPU anymore because of this. However, like I said, I was in between hardware reviews and I was bored! Idle hands make the devil's work... At least that's what my Mother always says! :-) One of the most prominent issues with stability of an overclocked P2 is actually the performance of the on board cache, which most often times can't...

  How do you properly cool a Pentium III ? The TennMax P3 TF Cooler These days most custom PC enthusiasts, tend to use some sort of third party Heat Sink and Fan combination for proper cooling of their CPU. Stock Heat Sink / Fans from Intel and other CPU vendors are usually only adequate for operation of the CPU within normal specs. Obviously, this is not something the average "overclocker" will be satisfied with. Until now, there really haven't been many good cooling solutions for the new Pentium III processor. TennMax, a well known cooling solutions provider, has designed a new product for the Pentium III that follows in the footsteps of their many other innovative cooling products.... Read more...
