Remember the days when you could call your bank and speak to someone on the phone. Why do I have to Check my balance online? Remember when you could go to Blockbuster and pick out a movie? Why must I pick out the movies on their website and have them shipped to me now? Why oh why must everything be online?

The demands made by today’s powerful GFX cards sometimes require better cooling than what the reference coolers can offer, at least to users who want either a more quiet cooling solution or are looking to reduce heat development. Generally though, today’s reference video card coolers work well enough, but they often don’t dissipate heat as well as coolers from third party manufacturers, particularly those from Zalman. The Zalman VF2000 LED was first conceived as a VGA cooler, but this prestigious Korean manufacturer then sought to revolutionize the market with a new concept: a hybrid cooler, which also cools CPUs. The Zalman VF2000 LED is a low-profile cooler that is ideal for HTPCs, and that can be used with most of today’s graphics cards. It makes this cooler very versatile...
The new Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P motherboard is built with the AMD 770 chipset
and the SB710 southbridge and it is the first AMD DDR3 board on ocinside.de

With digital photo frames becoming more and more prevalent, the features they offer are starting to become more varied. The ID800WT from Sungale is unique in that it not only displays photos, but also has integrated Wi-Fi, among other features.
Over the course of this review, my opinion of the Xonar HDAV1.3 Slim has gradually improved alongside the software and drivers. Initially I wasn't very impressed, but could see the potential. With each updated version of the drivers and player I've become just a little more comfortable with the card. I'm happy to say that today I'm extremely satisfied with its performance.
Heat emissions have always been an issue with laptops and the constant race towards higher CPU and GPU performance hasn't made much contribution to solving the problem. Even the name "Lap-top" suggests we are talking about a product suitable for your lap. But everyone who has tried some serious gaming while resting the laptop in their lap, knows what kind of heat we are talking about (and what it does to your nuts). So the last couple of years, while the laptop sales have peaked, we have seen a lot of new products on the market, aiming to solve this problem. A couple of weeks back we reviewed the "Nexus TDD-9000 Laptop Cooling Pad" and today we will be taking a look a more advanced laptop cooler, the Tacens Fero...
FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 27, 2009 — Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer memory, power supplies and flash memory products, including solid-state drives, today announced a new set of high density products for Intel® Core i5 and Core i7 processors. These DIMMs are available in dual and triple channel configurations and are specifically tuned for Intel CPUs.
Early on in their debut, Solid State Drives were planned as included equipment on new computers coming from tier one manufacturers such as Dell, HP, and Apple. In one way or another they made good on their word, but the inflated price for these premium options made SSDs a distant reality. This situation created the perfect condition for a enthusiastic upgrade market. Not surprisingly, manufacturers went after the individual consumer after losing traction with mass system builders, and upgrade kits became the obvious solution for many enthusiasts. Kingston is well known for manufacturing their own memory products, but when it came to the new SSD technology they turned to proven sources such as Samsung. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 64GB SATA-II MLC SSD SNV225-S2/64GB.
This is your standard tower style heatpipe cooler with the radiator being the perfect size for a 120mm fan. Just like the original Hyper 212 there are 4 physical heatpipes bent in the middle giving us twice the cooling capacity.
The mouse has become the standard method of navigating graphical user interfaces, but it leaves something to be desired when you want more free-form control of your cursor. The pen tablet provides the the control that a regular mouse lacks. The Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet is meant to be an introductory foray into the world of pen tablets, featuring a 5.8" x 3.7" active area, 512 levels of pressure sensitivity, battery-less pen and mouse, 4 function buttons and a scroll pad. In this article Benchmark Reviews will test how well the Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet CTE450K holds up in Photoshop Elements.
In this corner, we have NZXT's Panzerbox mid-tower LAN case. This featherweight can pack a heavyweight and not tire you out on the trip to the LAN as well as provide the proper cooling for your portable heater. We'll weigh in the NZXT Panzerbox after the break.
Benchmark Reviews recently reviewed the SilverStone SUGO SST-SG06B Case, and supplied with that product was the SST-SOD01 kit. As was mentioned in that review, the case supports only slim optical drives. The SST-SOD01 slim drive kit we received is actually the Panasonic UJ-875A Slim Optical Drive manufactured for SilverStone. Since many of you will undoubtedly be looking to purchase the SUGO SG06 case or another small form factor case, you will need a slim optical drive. Benchmark Reviews offers for your consideration the Panasonic UJ-875A 8X DVD +/- RW Slot Loading Slim Optical Drive with SATA interface and DVD-Burner capabilities.
FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 24, 2009 — Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer memory, power supplies and flash memory products, including solid-state drives, today announced a new, high-capacity 256GB addition to its high-performance Extreme Series SSD family.
Built using the renowned Indilinx Barefoot controller and Samsung MLC NAND flash memory, the new Corsair Extreme Series X256 SSD combines high-performance with a massive 256GB of storage space, for enthusiasts who don't want to compromise on speed or capacity. The new Corsair Extreme Series X256 joins the existing models, the X32, X64 and X128, and offers read speeds of up to 240MB/s and write speeds of up to 170MB/s. It also features 64MB of cache memory, ensuring stutter-free performance.
The purpose is simple: offer a universal notebook adapter with widespread compatability with nearly all notebook computers in use today. It's the sort of product that fits in nicely on store shelves at your local electronics store or computer repair shop. The Cooler Master SNA 95, which stands for Slim Notebook Adapter and totals 95W of nominal output power, includes everything needed inside one small kit. The RP-095-D19A-A1 model comes with eight different charger tips to ensure compatability with the majority of popular laptop systems, and a 1A USB port to rapid-charge connected devices. Benchmark Reviews details the features and functionality behind the Cooler Master SNA 95 universal slim notebook adapter.
"The QNAP TS-439 has a lot of great features going for it. For a 4 drive NAS device which really is a computer optimized for storage purposes, it doesn't have a huge footprint. The black front with gun metal aluminum chassis gives it a very sleek and professional look, definitely meant for the office or a network, tucked away in a network cabinet. Unlike the TS-809 Pro that I reviewed earlier, the TS-439 comes complete with eSATA ports to increase your capacity by an additional 2 drives."
Origen AE has taken their legendary construction quality down to a mini ITX platform with their newest HTPC chassis - the M10. It is made of two thick pieces of aluminum and features an external, passive 150W power brick - two aspects you won't get anywhere else. But is this enough to justify the 400 Euro price tag?
Enthusiasts are no stranger to RAID arrays. While server administrators depend on the redundancy of RAID-1 and other safe multi-drive configurations, performance enthusiasts are willing to risk it all for the promise of twice the normal performance from a striped RAID-0 array. To enjoy the added speed there must be two identical drives to which the data can split and write to each drive in stripes. Solid State Drive products already come at a premium over their hard drive counterparts, and most enthusiasts save up for just one SSD to help launch their computer system into hyper-speed. For the first time, SSDs are available in a twin-pack set, as Benchmark Reviews tests the Corsair P64 RAID PK1 kit. This SSD set includes two Corsair P64 64GB MLC drives, each with the part number CMFSSD-64GBG2D.

When presented with a chassis like Lian Li's PC-B25F, it is very hard not to heap praise on it like a smitten middle school girl. There is, nevertheless, a hell of a lot to recommend this case. It looks good, has a fabulous feature set with many excellent tool-free elements and top shelf cooling. What more do you want?"
