The Tech Report does their usual thorough job evaluating ECS's KA1 MVP Extreme motherboard. This mobo is based on the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire Edition chipset, and sports supplemental PCI Express based Gigabit Ethernet and SATA RAID controllers. We'll be including this board in an upcoming CrossFire motherboard round-up we've got in the works. "The latest of ECS's Extreme offerings is the KA1 MVP, a Socket 939 motherboard that combines ATI's Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire Edition chipset with PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet and Serial ATA RAID. That looks like a decent spec on paper; however, we enthusiasts are a picky lot, and we demand more... Read more...
Appro, one of the largest OEM rack mount computer manufactures in the 90's, has recently released their new XtremeServer products into the market. Tonight the folks over at X-Bit labs had a chance to sit down with Appro, and discuss server features, their current relation with AMD, and a host of other topics. "The Appro 3U XtremeServers brings even more power, impressive memory scaling, and end-user flexibility. This server is ideal for large compute-intensive applications such as mechanical and engineering graphic simulation and rendering, computational fluid dynamics, scientific visualization, and digital content creation."...

If you're in the market for a powerful AGP graphics card, Motherboards.org has something on tap you'll want to check out. They've just posted a review of XFX's GeForce 7800 GS Extreme Edition. It's one of the fastest and most feature rich AGP graphics cards available. "There's still an upgrade market for the AGP user. After all there's literally hundreds of millions of systems based upon the old standard still in use today. The 7800GS AGP Extreme Edition is positioned to take advantage of the fact that the last ATI AGP high-end card, the X850XT PE is still based upon SM 2.0. One thing that the card has going for it is the availability. The 6800... Read more...
Adrian certainly makes a good point with the fact that the majority of people aren't gaming on the fastest hardware, as hardware surveys such as the one at Steampowered.com will show. Today they review the ASUS Extreme N7300GS, which is part of Nvidia's 7x00 family, but is it fast enough to run any of today's games? "While the focus is always on the sexy, high-end cards, the reality is that most cards being sold today are lower-end cards. Today, we will take a look at the latest entry-level card to come out of the ASUS factory - the ASUS Extreme N7300GS. Based on the new NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS GPU, this card will be simple and affordable. But... Read more...
HardOCP has managed to get their hands on the new ASUS Extreme N7800GT single-card SLI behemoth and run it through its paces. I'm sure many of us wouldn't mind the ability to have SLI performance with a single graphcis card in our already cluttered systems. Head on over to the review to see if the switch to a single PCB results in any degredation in performance over traditional 2-card SLI solutions. Just be sure to have reasonable expectations of the card as illustrated in the quote below.  Also, check our preview of the product here, for comparison purposes.Now to be clear here, you still must have an NVIDIA SLI motherboard in order to use this dual GPU card from ASUS. Also, you cannot... Read more...
Ryan and the gang at PC Perspective have just published their review of the Asus Extreme AX1800 XT TOP flagship graphics card. Based on the X1800 GPU, the card is overclocked well beyond reference clock frequencies. This monster of a graphics card also features a beefy heatsink assembly that should effectively cool the GPU while keeping noise output at a reasonable level. Although impressive, this graphcis card is a questionable purchase at best right now with ATI's next generation flagship GPU being just around the corner. The Asus AX1800XT TOP is one of the fastest single GPU graphics cards we have ever tested, and the package that surrounds... Read more...
A GeForce 7800GT with no fans?  Better make sure that case has plenty of ventilation and a little extra slot space for the cooler on this thing! VR-Zone lit it up and it's typical Asus top-notch stuff.The temperature of the N7800GT under load seems directly related to the airflow of the CPU fan. Those with a weak CPU fan can expect to see higher temperatures than those with a CPU fan that has more airflow. However, users of heatsinks that do not have a fan in the usual position over the CPU heatsink (and under the N7800GT's heatsink, in this case) might want to think twice about getting this card, since such a setup would probably mean little airflow over the N7800GT's heatsink and therefore...

When it comes to sound cards, the competition is a lot more "low-profile" than the video card sector.  With audio cards, Creative is enjoyed the most success, being the most recognizable name in the market.  ExtremeMHZ.com has a review of the Creative Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeMusic, which they feel delivers the best PC audio experience...period.  They take a look at the overall hardware and pay an equal amount of attention to the software bundle, which then found equally as impressive."There hasn't been much interest in PC sound cards lately. People are either quite happy with what they got or don't think anything out there that is worth a look. One reason for this is... Read more...

Intel has been relatively quiet over the last eight months or so, since the initial release of the dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition 840 processor back in early April of this year. The company has released an entire line of dual-core 'Pentium D' processors since then, and have also introduced a number of new core logic chipsets as well, including the recently released 975X Express chipset.  However, they've been content to have the 3.2GHz Pentium Extreme Edition 840 as their flagship desktop processor for quite some time. Courtesy of its dual Hyper-Threading enabled execution cores, the 3.2GHz Pentium Extreme Edition 840 was a high performing CPU in many multi-threaded applications, but... Read more...
Although a bit early it seems, CNET has posted their review of the Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 955 (Presler) CPU. Using the soon to be announced 975X Express chipset, this new Intel platform provided some promising performance numbers which took a chunk out of AMD's performance lead. Add some significantly reduced power consumption and this new platform begins to look much more appealing than current Intel offerings. You can see what Marco thought of Intel's latest platform by reading Hot Hardware's latest review.Although it shows some promise, we had hoped to see more initial performance gains from the Extreme Edition 955 chip. It certainly exhibits some improvement compared to Intel's older... Read more...

The gang at HardOCP have taken a look at the ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer graphics card. Based on the GeForce 6600GT core and equipped with a totally passive heatsink assembly, this card certainly seems to lend itself well towards a HTPC or quiet gaming box. For comparison sake, you can see how the card faired on the Hot Hardware test bench in this review.The bottom line is that if you are looking for a silent video card with decent performance in the latest games, then this is the card for you. However, if you are trying to find the best gaming experience for your dollar, the GeForce 6800 GS really adds more bang for your buck considering they are close to the same price. If the ASUS 6600 GT... Read more...
Is your overclocked rig being held back by high temps? For the extreme overclocker, air cooling just doesn't always cut it. 3dGameMan looks to quench your thirst with Swiftech's H20-Apex "Extreme Duty" kit. In traditional 3dGameMan style, the review is presented in video format, so grab a snack and enjoy the show. "There's a reason they call this product "Extreme Duty"! They include massive tubing (5/8"), the excellent STORM waterblock, and a wicked industrial quiet pump. All this in combination has to yield excellent results, and it does.
