The Asetek Vapochill and Abit CX6 An Adventure In Over-Clocking June 27, 2000 - By Dave Altavilla  Art form, hobby, addiction.... whatever you want to call it, Over-Clocking and the quest for every last MHz. that can be wrung out of a CPU, is beginning to become a national and global past time.  With each new Motherboard, CPU, Heat Sink or Over-Clocking tool, new plateaus of performance are being reached that were unattainable with standard equipment.  The "need for speed" has truly been the mother of invention.  Some extreme over-clocking setups begin in the lab and others still are conceived in a garage or basement.  In either case, the people behind the cause...

 Overclocking The GeForce4 Ti 4600 When fast isn't fast enough... By Dave Altavilla 3/3/02 What self respecting PC Enthusiast wouldn't take a brand new graphics card technology and push it to its limits?  Well, perhaps there are a few conservative types out there that would rather take the "in warranty" and stable path of stock clock speeds.  The HotHardware Team however, like many in our field, takes pride in exploring the outer limits of new hardware that hits our labs.  In this quick analysis, we plan to show you just what the GeForce4 Ti 4600 can do with a little help from the "coolbits" clock frequency control panel tab.  We didn't perform any...

Pentium 4 - Adventures In Over-clocking Pushing the limits with the help of Asus' P4T i850 Motherboard By Dave "Davo" Altavilla 12/11/00       Once in a while we get a product into the lab here at HotHardware that is just plain fun to work with.  As a result, we like to take our time with a full review of the product so we have plenty of time to "live with it" before passing judgment.  We have been working and living with Asus P4T Motherboard for about a week now and we have been able to do some pretty interesting tricks with it while having a lot of fun in the process.This is a quick peek into the netherworld of over-clocking with the Pentium...

The NVidia GeForce 2 MX Top End Performance At Bargain Basement Prices - And It Over-clocks too! By Dave "Davo" Altavilla 7/7/00   There is something strange about 3D Graphics Cards that brings out the "crazies" in people.  What amuses me the most is when people get into very emotional and heated discussions in our HotHardware Conference Room Forum.  It is as if people hold their video cards so close to their hearts, the damn things are like spouses or children to them.  While we personally don't understand this phenomenon here at HotHardware, one thing is for sure people get down right belligerent and opinionated about their 3D Graphics cards.  With...

Unlocking & Overclocking The AMD Slot A Thunderbird Straddling the fence between the old and the new July 4, 2000 - By Dave Altavilla  In this weeks installment of "my PC is faster than yours", we have a new processor that has emerged in the High End space.  AMD's long awaited Thunderbird (god I love that code name) has arrived and it's sporting 256K of on chip full speed L2 Cache.  Along with this new CPU, we will be using a new motherboard from Gigabyte, the GA-7VX (full review coming soon), designed around VIA's new KX133 chipset affording AGP4X and PC133 memory support to the Athlon platform.  The combination of this new round of technology from the two primary...

The Kingmax TinyBGA PC133 SDRAM DIMM A New Form Factor In PC Memory Technology June 14, 2000 By Dave "Davo" Altavilla   We've said this before and the same rings true time and time again, the PC Hardware Industry always has a place for something new and innovative.  Too often products are brought to market with a "me too" approach and there is little to differentiate them from the rest of crowd.  We are always looking for the products that stand out, here at HotHardware and the Kingmax "TinyBGA" SDRAM DIMM Module is one of those products.  So, what makes this memory module so different from all the other hundreds of modules offered in the memory...
