Hey folks, how's everyone doing? A foot of snow has fallen, adding to the 4 inches we had yesterday, so hurrah for March and the fact that's it's not even half over. Well, I'll end with the sarcasm and get you the news, enjoy :) Razotech Blizzard Case @ PimpRig "Before I go any further, let me talk a little bit about the airflow design of the Blizzard case. It makes no sense at all. Both doors and the top are actually a huge mesh, but only the top and left side have filters. The front is mesh, but is mostly blocked by plastic. The only fan included on the Blizzard is a front intake yet there is no filter there." March 2005 Budget System Buyer's Guide - Socket 754 under $400 @ Mikhailtech... Read more...
Welcome back friends :)  Last night I started to build my first HTPC.  It is typically what one would find in a high-end box, so I will spare you the details.  However, I have to mention the SilverStone case I picked up.  This is my first experience with one of their products and let me tell you, I am thoroughly impressed.  From ribbon cable guides, zip-tie (cable wraps) slots, case intrusion switch, etc... this case has it all.  It was a tad on the expensive side, but I think the overall cost vs. feature evened out in the end. Anyhow, enough blabbering, it is getting late and our news bin is filling up.  Here is your AM update...  AOpen i855GMEm-LFS @... Read more...
Morning there folks, you've got a sleepy JeffB checking in with your latest news bit.  A couple of nights ago I picked up HL2 so I could use it in future benchmarks. Surely, I took a few minutes to see how it played, even though time is precious these days.  Needless to say, it's been 2 days since I bought the game and I would say I've invested about 10 hours in gameplay ;)  What can I say, it's awesome, with amazing realism.  After a bit of a let down with Doom 3, it's nice to be pleasantly surprised after spending $50 on a game.  Get it, you won't be sorry!  Next up is a bit of the news, and don't forget, if you see something you think we should post, let us know....

Good morning folks, Happy New Year!  With the holiday season coming to a close, it is back to the grind for this ol'boy.  Not that I really mind though; in some sick way I am actually finding myself missing work.  Nonetheless, it is getting late and I have a pile of news for you.  Here is your AM update...  Toshiba 80GB 16MB Cache 2.5in HDD Review @ Mikhailtech "The drive features a Fluid Dynamic Bearing motor for quieter operation and spins at 5400 RPM. It's rated for ATA-100 speeds and has a 12ms average seek time. While this may seem slow by desktop standards, keep in mind that more compact lower density notebook drives have a lot of catching up to do. From a... Read more...
Hey folks, it's that time again.  Sadly, we heard some disturbing news about Abit yesterday. The reports are there is a fair amount of financial wrong doing going on and the Taiwan authorities have stepped into the picture.  Here's the latest details so far, but we'll need to stay tuned and see how this unfolds. The 12 Stars of Samsung for 2005 @ HardwareZoom: "Here is a sneak preview of 12 Samsung hottest products which will be released in year 2005.

Well folks, looks like I'm officially part of the HH Team now... Hello ;) The news is slow again this week(though not as slow as I am this morning), but I'll give you what there is, and then I'm off to watch the Patriots game. Here we go... Samsung CLP-550N Color Laser Printer @ XYZ Computing "The whopping onboard memory of 128MB is more than enough to handle most complicated documents such as large raster images, complex vector images from software such as Adobe Illustrator. Huge PDF files tend to be a big culprit with holding up printer spoolers, but they are not an issue with this beast. In fact, the printer's RAM helps it to buffer large amounts of documents at once, so that there is... Read more...

Good morning folks!  Happy Post Thanksgiving to all our State side friends.  In typical holiday fashion, I managed to eat so much food I still feel full the next morning.  We had one heck of a spread including a 25LB turkey and all the sides you could imagine.  What was more amazing was that for some reason, the turkey didn't make me sleepy at all.  In fact, I was wide awake the whole night, staring at the ceiling wondering if the triptophan would ever kick in.  Sadly, it didn't.  So it's lots of coffee for me this AM followed by a late afternoon nap for sure. I hope the rest of you had a good time with the one's you love, as that is what Thanksgiving is all... Read more...

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...
