YY-B0221 Cube Case
BoPC has just posted it's review on the YY-B0221 Cube case, which is pre-damped by NoiseControl. Now there is an interesting concept, built in sound dampening. Read on to see if it works.

"Well, I have to say, Woa Heavy! This case is very heavy, it is to be expected. There is 2x the room of a normal case, being that its 2x the size of a normal case. The fact that its been sound damped by mats that are quite hefty also add the the considerable weight of the unit. This case is in it's original state already a beautiful case, however with some modding it could be even nicer. This case has everything you wish for, enough room for raid setups, good air circulation inside, and easy to reach hardware by removing the front bezel and it's sidepanels."

Thermaltake Xaser III
Legit Reviews has cranked out a review on the Thermaltake's new Xaser III Super Tower, although you can see similarities this design does not appear to be based on the Cheiftec one.

"If you are looking for a new, top-of-the-line case for your new system, this is the review you want to read! Legit Reviews talking about Thermaltake's Xaser III Super Tower. The model we will be looking at of the Xaser III is V1000D, which is the blue Xaser III with the window option..."

Cooler Master LED Fans
Voided Warranty has posted a review of Cooler Master's latest LED Fans.

"Maybe COOLERMASTER will go the cable sleeving route in the future. By looking at the two fans next to each other, one would definitely go for the fan that has the cable sleeve."

Mini-ME? (Outcast)
I am kinda disgusted at the 1.5 GB installation size of my XP Pro…well this fellow has managed to shrink his Windows 98SE OS to a weensy 40MB. I dunno ‘bout you but I am willing to give it a go! Time to dust off the SETI Monster (retired) and see how fast it can run with this OS Mod.

"To balance all that criticism of the company, this is a 100% Microsoft system, born out of the 98SE core, illustrating once again just what superb operating systems they are at heart. Eat your heart out Linux companies, you can NEVER achieve this."

I may not be happy about what we are going to do in the Gulf but the brave men and women of our armed forces are not asked for an opinion... they follow orders!

MicroTracker Mouse Pad
Extensiontech has a MicroTracker Mouse Pad review in it he puts the manufacturers claims of their pad being washable to the test by literally putting it through a cycle in the washing machine!

"What is this? Another cloth mouse pad? Technically, yes, sort of. The MicroTracker mouse pad sports what feels more like velour, or felt, than the old el cheapo mouse pads you can buy for 2 bucks at your local discount store. Does it stand up to the test? This pad you can wipe off with a damp cloth, or rinse off, hehe. I feel a real test for this pad is needed... See how the washing machine and dryer handles it! Read on, or click the link to the review, whichever is applicable..."

USB 2.0 Enclosure (Mixam)
A very useful piece of hardware. I would use it to back up my computer, and to transfer files to a friend's house faster.

"The CoolMax 5.25" USB 2.0 External Enclosure available from CrazyPC is a handy item that will breathe new life into an old drive that could now be reborn as a portable device. Even adding the $42.95 cost of the CoolMax 5.25" USB 2.0 External Enclosure to the price of a new 52x CD burner is price competitive with kits sold complete with a drive pre-installed. Adding your own, older drive to the enclosure gives you a budget portable device with the high performance you could pay much more for."

Budget Sound Card (Mixam)
Its always nice to find alternative companies to spend your money on. Just to keep the big boys on their toes and prices lower.

"The truth is, the AV-515M had an unfair disadvantage throughout this whole review - it is aimed to be an all-purpose, cheap solution with good sound; while the Audigy is aimed at the higher-end spectrum of consumers. Considering the price difference between the Audigy and the AV-515M, the AV-515M did surprisingly well."

HSF Shootout
The Madshrimps put 4 highend heatsinks to the test. Including the Thermalright SLK900 & SLK800.

"Looking for the ultimate aircooling ? Want to push more then 1.85v through that Athlon XP core and still have headroom for overclocking? Or looking for a very silent solution to keep it all cool and safe? Look no further, we test ThermalRight's SLK900U and compare it to its older brother the SLK800. And for reference we also include the popular Alpha PAL8045 and the Swiftech 462-A!"

Samsung 172T
Today, MBReview has taken a look at a 17" TFT LCD monitor from Samsung, the 172T. It brings with it some unique features such as the capability to be folded down and wall mounted.

"The package also includes the analog and digital cables for use with the 172T and your graphics card. If you can use the digital connection, I highly recommend it, you won’t be let down. The last item of note that is included in the package is the wall mounting bracket, and the necessary hardware. The 172T is a gem as it can be folded down and mounted to your wall if you ever chose to do so. Talk about saving desk space, this 172T could be the ultimate space saver."

Twistedmods has a review of the Logitech's Momo racing wheel, Force feedback, shifting, and pedals make this one a full package.

"Logitech has made another fine product along with their other products. This wheel is very durable and sturdy. The full rubber grip on the wheel gives it a realistic feel and precision. The force feedback effects were consistent and strong and worked well with the games. The wheel made it fun to drive in the games and added a degree of realism not experienced before. This is a solid product with ease of installation and use. The parts are of high quality and follow Logitech's high quality standards."

Crank Up The Mhz (Mixam)
ECS has come up with a way to overclock your computer where you just turn a dial to speed it up. I don't like the idea, you kid could come along and turn the dial and burn up your new chip.

"ECS, in Taipei, on Wednesday introduced its EZ-Buddie line of PCs which let users overclock their CPUs by adjusting a dial located on the front of the PC case."

512MB Corsair XMS3500
ipKonfig has reviewed two 512MB Corsair XMS3500 memory modules. The review was tested on the Asus A7N8X Deluxe motherboard.

"XMS stands for eXtreme Memory Speed, and that's the crux of the matter. XMS memory is very high performance memory that leaves room for overclocking, and takes on those high-end games that we're all so familiar with. So, how is this accomplished? "XMS, or eXtreme Memory Speed, is the process that Corsair uses to take ICs rated at one speed and verify/guarantee their operation at another speed. Since specifications have not been generated to accurately specify operating parameters, Corsair gives these parts an XMS rating. For example, since PC2400 does not exist according to any valid standards institution, Corsair parts are called XMS2400." Corsair doesn't just 'make' memory and send it to consumers like most memory companies do. XMS memory modules are tested to perform at the speeds specified by the manufacturer."

CubesystemZ CF-S968 Small Form Factor PC
The explosion in popularity of the small form factor PC has fueled the rapid development of some genuinely innovative products, however they still carry the stigma of being a trade-off between dimensions and power.

"The SFF PC has really filled a gaping hole in the market in terms of its aesthetics, its portability and its size. >From the wandering LAN addict to the regular householder wanting to incorporate some cutting edge technology into their home entertainment setup these "little silver boxes" as CubesystemZ calls them are a near perfect solution."

Thermalright SLK800U
Now this is intriguing. Thermalright has taken a refitted the SLK-800 with the mounting mechanism found on the SLK900. I am really stumped what real advantages this offers but its still bun to look.

"While Thermalright is always looking forward in their heatsink design and offerings, this time they briefly looked back. They took the popular SLK-800, a top ranked 80mm fan, copper heat sink, and added the much more robust mounting system found on their SLK-900U to it and called it the SLK-800U."

More CeBIT
Hardware Analysis' has some more CeBIT 2003 coverage. From everything I have heard and read CeBIT this year is a little like COMDEX was in the fall, lots smaller than previous years. There is still some cool announcements though.

"Another case offered a built in air purifier, mounted behind the grill and with two fans drawing air through it from the outside. This solution will not only work as a dust filter but also rid the incoming air of dust, smoke and other particles. As a result the case will be kept in a pristine condition whereas a solution with just a fan will quickly cause for dust buildup inside a case."

Vantec EZ-Swap Mobile IDE Rack
Hard Drive caddy's are nothing new but as with more and more items from manufacturers lately, Vantec have added a host of extra's to separate them from the competition.

"The EZ Swap 102FD doesn't hinder the drive compared to it being directly connected to the IDE interface in the slightest, with speeds remaining the same as without the EZ Swap being used. As the graph shows, temperatures are pretty good and within specifications for such a drive."
