Shuttle SB83G5C Media Center XPC @ t-break | Image "The two drive bays and the front panel are all concealed making the look consistent and elegant. The front also houses the VFD display which is a two line display with the top line showing icons of the currently used function and the bottom line showing text such as the time or the temperature of your XPC. We must say that the VFD display gels real well with the mirror finish giving it a somewhat Sony floating glass touch." LiteOn SOHW-1693S DVD Writer @ Techniz... Read more...
Good morning everyone, welcome back to HotHardware :)  I know it is a bit late, but I wanted to take a second and wish all the mothers out there a belated Happy Mommies Day.  Though we may have our heads buried inside our computer towers more then we probably should, we do appreciate everything you do for us!!  Well, except for those times when you yell at us for eating cookies right before dinner...  It's just one cookie; it's almost like an appetizer, but with sugar and chocolate... ;)  AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800 Review Linkage:  Before you venture away, make sure you take a few minutes and look at our very own review of AMD's new offering: Marco and Dave's Review Tech...

Hey folks, this afternoon we have a few photography related articles for you, along with a Laptop and water cooling system review. I've got to cut the chat short though, as I'm trying to fix a couple computers and fill some holes in my wall(fun stuff!). Enjoy! Fujitsu P7010D Laptop Review @ Designtechnica "The LifeBook 7010 is an attractive system that melds shades of silver and black with a somewhat industrial, yet refined looked. There is very little in the way of branding on the system itself. The Fujitsu name is on the bottom of the system and on the inside of the lid only. The top of the lid and sides of the 7010 are completely bare. The lid hinge is definitely unique and what makes... Read more...
I heard it from the mailbox: "Gigabyte has released 5 new bios files that add support for the E stepping of the new Athlon 64 Venice and Sempron Paris core". And there is now another chapter in the recent story of large companies and lost information... Time Warner announced today that they have lost data on 600,000 current, and former employes.

How To Work With Your Digital Camera's Histogram @ The Tech Zone: "While teaching a recent photography workshop, an older fellow in the back of the room raised his hand. He said, "I just bought me a new toy and she's a beauty! But I can't figure out how to make the hysterectomy work?" Fortunately, my student wasn't describing a woman. He was talking about how to pull up the histogram on his new Nikon digital camera. His confusion is not unusual. When I use my digital cameras around film people, one of the first things they see and ask about is the histogram. They want to know what it is, and how should they use it." Koolance EXOS-2 Self Contained Computer Water Cooler @ HardOCP:... Read more...

Simple, yet extremely effective silent cooling, give you stable overclocks to the levels of the Platinum Edition without even a 2nd glance. Add to that a range of adapters that could make your day and a Dual DVI output launch this card to the top of the pile, especially when you consider the price... Read more...
