This morning we have news ranging from an aftermarket cooler from Aerocool, to 1GB of SD Memory goodness.  Most interesting is the BFGTech 6600 GT OC review that covers all flavors, including AGP, PCI-Express and SLI. Aerocool HT-101JR @ Overclockers Online: "With hotter and hotter chips becoming the reality, larger and more expensive coolWith hotter and hotter chips becoming the reality, larger and more expensive cooling measures are becoming common. Engineers have the difficult task of finding the right balance of cost, size, and noise in order to deliver cooling performance. Too much of any one factor may be bad and be the cause for failure. On top of these factors, there are also... Read more...
Evenin' folks and happy Friday to you.  I've taken down the memory poll here and replaced it with a new poll.  It seems the folks at OCZ saw fit to stack the numbers a bit and send folks from their site to ours, just to vote in the poll.  Now, we do agree OCZ does manufacture some quality product but we know for a fact that Corsair specifically was firmly in the lead for weeks in that poll, until very recently. The intent of our poll here is to help profile your interests as an end user, so we can know what companies/products to focus on in the months ahead.  Sending people to vote in our polls isn't the way to achieve meaningful results in that effort. Sorry for the confusion... Read more...
Good morning everyone :)  I am back from my business trip and itching to get back to the grind.  So, in an effort to get the news to you faster, we are going to skip over my Oh-So witty banter and get right down to business.  Here is your AM shot... ;) ABIT Unleashes Fatal1ty AN8 Motherboard January 31, Fremont, CA.

  Even though DDR2 memory may be the current talk of the town, thanks to Intel's platform upgrade, there are plenty of P4, Athlon, and Athlon 64 owners that still use standard DDR based systems.  Reason being, it's almost always cheaper to stay slightly behind the curve when purchasing hardware.  It's probably never been more true these days than ever before.  Although technology can't stand still, current software and user habits simply don't require every user to go out and buy the latest and greatest every few months.  Case in point might be the current crop of i915/i925x motherboards.  Upgrading to one of these motherboards in many cases requires a complete overhaul...

Good morning all :)  It was my sister-in-laws 30th birthday last night, so, needless to say my head is feeling a little fuzzy this morning.  But, a night of good times is well worth the few hours of feeling under the weather ;)  Nervetheless, it is getting later in the day so let's got down to business...  PDP System Patriot XBL PC-3200 DC Kit @ ClubOC "Its amazing how the memory industry is ran. It seems like more and more companies are just doing the same thing. In a way it's good, and in other ways it's bad. The bad side is that you can still buy what seems like "good" memory and next thing you know its gone bad, and the company has gone out of business or... Read more...
Good afternoon HotHardware fans! Our man Jeff just finished up a review of some top notch DDR2 memory from PQI. Their PQI24200-1GDB DDR2 Turbo Memory Kit held its own against some of Corsair's best, and it ran at even lower latencies than it was rated for. Click here and check it out...... Read more...
Competition can be a blessing for consumers, a headache for manufacturers and a driving force for an entire industry.  Where a market once may have been dominated by one or two big companies with a handful of smaller competitors striving for their piece of the pie, nowadays the scales are somewhat more balanced.  A good example of this is with the CD/DVD-ROM market, where a few big names like Plextor and Pioneer set the standard for years.  Today, there are many equally good offerings from lesser-known names at lower prices.  No longer is it necessary to pay a little extra for name recognition when there are quality alternatives for an economical price. We've seen a similar... Read more...
Good morning all :)  With my good friend, Mr. Coffee, not working this morning; I have to seek alternate means of getting caffeine into my blood stream.  Our friends over at ThinkGeek have a good selection of various goodies, but I think a quick stop at Starbucks is called for this morning.  Mmm, expensive coffee..... ;)  MSI DR16-B Dual Layer 16x DVD @ Viper Lair "In terms of performance, the MSI DR16-B provides ample speed for a Dual Layer drive. Performance is on par with the HP unit and is quite a bit quicker in DVD-R burning. All the DR16-B burns worked flawlessly, and if you can find them, 16x DVD writes is as fast as it gets."  OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Gold... Read more...

I'll post what we have now, and I'll update this post if anything new comes along in the next few hours... depending on how the New England Patriots game is going :) Here we go... Al Tech Anydrive FM Transmitter @ MHW "On the left side is where you are able to connect your USB media. Note the distance from the side of the Anydrive and the USB plug is rather small, so if your USB media is not very slim, you may have difficulties inserting your media.

Good morning everyone.  I know you stopped by for your latest dose of news this AM, and it is a big one.  We had a slew of interesting articles sitting in our inbox covering the hardware spectrum, from memory, motherboards, P4 overclocking and a contest for some free memory too.  So pour yourself an extra large one, this is going to take a little time to get through.   FIC Condor SFF @ Viper Lair: "FIC put together a nice little barebone PC, but missed on some important features that enthusiasts have come to expect. While it's no slouch in gaming, it does not stand out in the performance department which is a shame as the design itself was well thought out. A change in... Read more...

With the advent of acrylic cases and case windows, visually what is on the inside has become just as important as what is on the outside.

Hey gang! I think a lot of us are winding down from a sports laden week, getting some much needed rest. There were some long baseball games that kept some of us up into the wee hours several times. I know I got the best night sleep of the week last night and it was really needed. To top that off, today my wife and I are going to play at the NC State Fair and relax even more. This will be my first time doing a Southern style fair, being a native NY'er. I look forward to trying some of the local food favorites like boiled peanuts, deep-fried candy bars and Barbecue. Down here, Barbecue is a food, not a grill. Should be interesting. Think I better take a Pepcid before I go.  Before I do, let's... Read more...

Good morning HotHardware fans!  How are you all doing today?  I take it everyone had a good weekend?  Mine was pretty fun, I celebrated my 2 year anniversary with my fiance on Saturday, and on Sunday we went to a Jets game.  On top of that, I had some benchmarking to do, we had a Yankee game to watch, and I had to contribute to the never-ending trail of trash talking e-mails circulating between the guys.  It's fun having Dave up in Massachusetts, and a few of the other guys living in New York.  I swear, if you could read the e-mails between Mario and Dave you'd all have a good laugh...but we're a PG-Rated site...  AMD Athlon FX overclocking to 3Ghz: Creating...

Good morning friends, welcome back to HotHardware.  I am pretty short on time this morning, so we are going to cut the chit-chat to a minimum.  However, this does not mean we are going to skimp on the news... ;)  Corsair TWIN2X1024-5400C4PRO @ Viper Lair "Corsair has earned a reputation as makers of fast and reliable ram, and this tradition continues from past ram formats and into DDR-2. While not earth shattering, performance-wise today, DDR-2 is forward thinking as Intel scales their clock speeds, and the TWIN2X Pro Series is up to the task."  Etymotic ER-6 Isolator Earphones Review @ CoolTechZone "Audiophiles want not only the best speaker sets, but also...

Good evening friends, welcome back to HH :)  With some new products rolling into the Canadian portion of the labs, this News Jockey will surely be a busy for the next little while.

Good morning folks!  How is everyone doing today?  I take it your week started out well? :)  Mine is going pretty good.  I've been taking a ton of pictures to prepare for a few upcoming reviews, did a little benchmarking, and did a some modding.  I also found the time to finish reading "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown over the last month.  If you haven't already done so, and you'd like a good murder mystery, you might want to check that book out.  Just be prepared for a little church bashing, and know that this is a work of fiction!  (So no hate mail!)  After reading it, I did a little research and was surprised by the debate going on over...
