Hey folks, sorry about the lack of updates this weekend, but we have some decent news for you tonight. Included in the list of items, is Abit's RX700 Pro-256PCIE, which comes with 1.6ns GDDR-3, and Corsair's XMS2-6400 modules, which are rated for 800MHz. Both very overclocker friendly... very. Anyway folks, after sleeping 6 hours on a hardwood floor last night, I think I could use a nap on a mattress. Enjoy the news :) Thermalright SI-97 CPU Cooler Review @ 3DXtreme "Today 3DXtreme has the pleasure of testing the latest Socket A heatsink from Thermalright, the SI-97.

Good Afternoon Folks! This is everyone's favorite oversized Italian, dropping in to let you all know that we've just posted a new review of a feature laden i925XE based motherboard from Foxconn, the 925XE7AA-8EKRS2. Unlike some of Foxconn's previous offerings, the 925XE7AA-8EKRS2 is targeted squarely at enthusiasts and offers a host of overclocking tools and drive connectivity options.

Until Intel's next-generation chipsets arrive, with support for upcoming multi-core processors, the 925X and 925XE will remain the flagship chipsets for LGA775 based Pentium 4 processors.  The 925X and XE are very similar, as Dave pointed out in his introduction to the P4 EE 3.46GHz last October.  When we compare the 925X and 925XE, the main difference between the two is that the XE officially supports a system bus of 1066MHz versus the 925X's official peak of 800MHz.  This brings full support for the current flagship Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processor, which taps the 1066MHz bus, and potential support for future processors from Intel that will utilize this faster bus speed as...

It has been about eight weeks since Intel officially launched their i925X (Alderwood) and i915 (Grantsdale) chipsets, and their new LGA775 "pinless" Pentium 4 processors.  Since the launch, we've taken a look at two i925X based motherboards from Abit and Asus (seen here), and we had tested Intel's own D925XCV motherboard in our launch article.  These three motherboards all worked well, and offered their own somewhat unique take on the i925X.  Intel's board made for a good reference platform, Abit's AA8 DuraMAX was a competitively priced, overclocker friendly board, and the Asus P5AD2 Premium was chock-full of technological "bells and whistles".  Today,...

  Tyan S2662 Trinity i7205 Dual Channel DDR for the Pentium 4 By, Chris Angelini February 24th, 2003 KISS - four letters that together, can mean so many different things.  It's a '70's rock band, it's a gesture of affection, and for Tyan, it's an acronym.  "Keep It Simple, Stupid" - quite possibly the best way to avoid costly mistakes that occur when a manufacture gets over-ambitious in its motherboard design.  Indeed, Tyan's corporate overview cites reliability as a primary focus of the company and its products reflect that.  And as a result, Tyan has established a reputation for dependable server and workstation boards, only recently venturing into graphics...

  Tyan S2495 Trinity KT400 More KT400 Madness By, Tom Laverriere February 17, 2003 Now that NVIDIA's nForce2 chipset has become mainstream, it seems as though many other AMD based motherboard chipsets just pale a little.  We know at least one chipset maker that would disagree with this of course, VIA.  VIA's KT400 offering has a lot of the same bells and whistles that the nForce2 provides.  With the KT400 you get AGP 8X, DDR400 ( though not guaranteed ), support for AthlonXP 333MHz front side bus processors, USB 2.0, and ATA 133 to name a few.  So, if Dual Channel DDR is not all that important to you, then the KT400 chipset should be.  Although we may not see some...

PC133 CAS2 SDRAM Module Competition Corsair Vrs. Mushkin By Dave Altavilla - September 19, 2000   Like building a house on a solid foundation, there is just no substitute for good memory, when it comes to performance computing.  Virtually all of the various components in your PC access main system memory at some point or another.  Whether you are an avid "Over-Clocker" or the conservative type, there is nothing more essential to system stability than a robust Main Memory Subsystem.  Having memory installed that is capable of handling the high end clock rates of today's modern system busses, can be the difference between "rock solidness" and an irritating...
