And I thought our little shop here at HotHardware had some hot-stuff hardware capacity coming on line with our new fancy-pants Dual 3GHz Xeon front end web box.  Google on the other hand likes to throw a few thousand Opterons at a time at the situations and own the backbone connection as well.  Oofaa..."The probable answer lies in one of Google's underground parking garages in Mountain View. There, in a secret area off-limits even to regular GoogleFolk, is a shipping container. But it isn't just any shipping container. This shipping container is a prototype data center. Google hired a pair of very bright industrial designers to figure out how to cram the greatest number of CPUs, the... Read more...
Sunbeamtech Theta TP-101 Fan Controller @ Bigbruin.com: "Sunbeamtech has offered the typical fan controller (rheobus) in a variety of styles in the past, but the software based Theta TP-101 is much different. Instead of using knobs to mechanically vary resistance, a Windows interface is used to automate this through software, while providing on screen information for up to eight fans and eight thermal probes." ECS KN1 SLI Extreme Review @AMDZone: "ECS took us by surprise with their nForce 4 Ultra based KN1 Extreme earlier this year, and followed that up with their revealing their SDGE technology a couple of months ago.

Trying to bring some order to current memory myths, Corsair has sent us a PDF showing the benefit some applications can receive from having a hefty 2GB of Ram installed. Half-Life 2's Lost Coast level is rumored to be out soon, and as many of you have heard, it does list 2GB of ram under the recommended requirements. Ouch. I'm still running on 512MB, so I might have to do a little shopping after the news.

Gamers take notice! Many of you may recall the legal battle between Valve and Vivendi, with Valve's child, Steam, in the middle. Well all of that is over and done with, but the questioned still remained as to who would be the next to distribute Valve's products. Now we know(and knowing is half the battle - GI Joe), Valve has teamed up with, drum roll please... Electronic Arts(EA). Details and info on upcoming game packages can be found below, as well as your afternoon dose of news.

We would have put a block on the chipset as well, but with the new chipset HSF mounting solution, we have no way of attaching the block to the northbridge chipset.

BlueTake BT400 G5 Bluetooth Headset Review @ The Tech Zone: "Nothing says geek like a Bluetooth headset. With the BT400 G5, you'll be able to laugh at people with corded headset because they're not as cool as you. With a simple flip and a twist, the BT400 G5 works for both left or right ear. How geeky is that?" DFI LanParty UT SLI-DR Review @ Ninjalane: "When SLI was first announced the enthusiasm here in the Ninjalane Labs for the new technology was crazy. Everyone was running around trying to get their hands on something SLI enabled in hopes of making that big score and upgrade to SLI."

Good morning folks!  Long time no see.  I apologize for my extended absence.  Can you believe that was the longest I've been away from HotHardware for over 6 years!  But I have a good excuse - I was on my Honeymoon!  Adrienne and I tied the not on May 14, 2005 and then we hopped on a plane for a couple of weeks in Antigua.  What a great experience.  Sun, sand, sea, another "S" word, and lots of relaxation.  Right now though, it's time to get back in the saddle and bare down for some work.  To be honest, I missed it!

Tonight's serving includes a little bit of everything. Another item I'll throw into the mix, is a possible roadmap of upcoming NVIDIA Chipsets, check it out. Goodnight folks! 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...
Sapphire Radeon X300SE HyperMemory & Leadtek WinFast PX6200 TC TDH @ Bjorn3D: "To make a respectable profit in the video card industry, a company cannot rely on its flagship cards to bring in high margins. Instead, a graphics card company must produce mid-level and low-end cards that will sell in big lots to OEMs. That's where the big money is. Several months ago, ATI and NVIDIA decided to spice up the low-end segment with their HyperMemory and TurboCache technologies, respectively."

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."

Last weekend, over 300 gamers descended upon the Boston suburb of Wilmington, MA with little else but 32 hours of non-stop fragging on their minds.  Well, that and possibly coming home with some new gear for their PC.  Just over a year ago LPANE, the LAN Party Association of New England, was formed with the hopes of pulling together the various smaller organizations in the area and using their combined strengths to come up with an event that everyone would remember.  The end result was Nor'Easter 2005, the largest professional LAN Party to hit the region.  Contrary to the event's name though, the event started off on a bright, sunny Saturday morning.    A line of...

Good morning all!  Most of us in the States are at the beginning of a 3-day weekend.  While I know I look forward to it, I also welcome the extra time to work on a couple of sweet pieces of hardware. Speaking of hardware, AMDZone has the X850XT Platinum on tap, an impressive looking card.  Make sure you check out Marco's take on this card too. ATI Radeon X850XT Platinum Edition Review @ AMDZone: "As you can see the card is equipped with a copper heat sink and large red exhaust fan. The fan helps to reduce overall system temperature by drawing internal air over the heat sink and expelling it from the back of the computer. On the back of the card you will notice the metal band...

We've got an interesting line-up for you this AM.  First, an entry level 6200 that should appeal to those on a budget, while Altec Lansing and ECS deliver some treats of their own.  Check it! Today Beyond3D takes a look at NVIDIA's NV43 based (non-TurboCache) GeForce 6200: "Although the NV43 chip has 8 internal fragment (Pixel Shader) pipelines, the GeForce 6200 is designed to be an entry level part and as such as a reduced number of pipelines, down to 4. It would seem apparent that the 6200 configuration is primarily based on fall-out parts that don't operate in NV43's full 6600 configuration." Overclockers Online has posted its review of Altec Lansing MX-5021: "I've... Read more...

Over the past year, DFI has made a name for itself with a crowd that is traditionally very hard to please.  A company that once built parts strictly for the OEM / white box folks, is now catering to the enthusiast and overclocking communities with a bold, feature laden line of motherboards.  DFI's "LANPARTY" products build upon their already solid reputation of producing reliable and stable motherboards, by incorporating a full compliment of overclocking and performance tweaking tools on motherboards that are designed to turn some heads.  With dark PCBs and UV reactive orange and yellow connectors, DFI's LANPARTY motherboards don't look like any others.
