Power Supply Testing Methodology @ EXTREME Overclocking "There are devices available like the Seasonic Power Angel, or the Kill-A-Watt meter, which give reasonably accurate figures for the amount of AC power a device consumes (and can even calculate out PF automatically). If you had one of these devices, you could make a rough estimate of DC wattage requirements by guestimating your PSU is about 75% efficient. However,... Read more...

CaseBuy EZ Power Supply Tester @ LAN Addict "CaseBuy's EZ Power Supply Tester is very easy to use and it will tell you if you are getting power on a rail. Just don't expect it to do any more than that. This little gadget can save you a lot of time by weeding out dead power supplies, but you'll want to have a multimeter handy to make sure that you're getting the right amount of power from your rails before you use the PSU you're testing."...

Hey folks, it's hard to believe that the new year is upon us.  2004 has flown by in my opinion, with a lot of changes in my life occurring.  I hope 2005 will be a good one, with a few goals set, it could be.  I'm not big on the whole "resolution" thing, but there is that sense of a clean slate, starting fresh.  I have to say, I always get a bit of a chuckle this time of year when you suddenly start seeing more joggers than usual on the road.  I guess getting in shape is the most popular resolution out there.  Well, I'm running a little slow today, woke up with no coffee in the house.  So let's get the news going so I can go get my java!

Good afternoon folks.  We have to apologize for the delay in news this morning.  We had some gremlins acting up on the server earlier that gave us some unscheduled downtime.  But now we're back and we've got some good reading to get you through your day. LeadTek WinFast A400 Ultra/GT TDH 6800 Review @ Beyond3D: "At a glance, the only noticeable difference between the two boards is the additional Molex connector visible on the 6800 Ultra-based card - aside from that, both boards use the same, near-silent two slot cooling solution. Despite its 'monster cooling' look, the fan noise from these boards is indeed reasonably quiet, and certainly not noticeably loud over the rest of... Read more...
Good morning all.  It looks like we've got a fair amount of news for you this morning, with a number of sites hard at work on some interesting reading.  We've been pretty busy this week as well, with some nice treats on tap for you.  I've also been toying with the idea of writing a few guides for our newbie friends, to help them with the various facets of building and using their rig.  What I'd like is some feedback from our readers letting me know what you would find most helpful.  So if there is something you would like covered, please drop a quick line and let me know!

The Pentium 4 Bench Test  Architecture and Performance Charting Of Intel's New Flagship By Dave Altavilla - November 20, 2000   An eternity has passed it seems, since Intel has released a processor based on an entirely new architecture.  In actuality, it's been 5 years to be exact, since the P6 Micro-Architecture was introduced in 1995.  Against the backdrop of the perpetual design cycles of the Semiconductor Industry, in 5 years a lot can change. However, mainstream processor base cores are not trivial to design.  Also, Intel has a pretty good knack of leaving themselves the hooks in the technology that will allow roadmap products at higher frequencies with more ...
