Scythe Zipang CPU Cooler @ Pro-Clockers
It seems that the success of one good cooler doesn't keep it on top forever, so all companies must try and produce a successor to these units. And Scythe knows this and got on the job of constructing a new cooler. That new cooler came to be the Zipang. I am still on the lookout on what Zipang means in plain English but when it comes to coolers it means a large 140mm cooling, six heat pipes and multi-processor support. From the looks of the Zipang it just may be a overclocker's best friend. But lets see if the test backs up our early judgment.
HighPoint RocketRAID 2300 PCI-E SATA Review @ Tweaktown
While we do have onboard RAID, what if you’re the type that wants more? The only option is to chuck in a RAID controller card, and thankfully HighPoint are still in the game as they continue to expand their line-up of controller cards. Today we have been given the chance to look at the RocketRAID 2300 PCI Express based controller card designed for the desktop user. How does it compare to the chipset integrated RAID? Let’s have a look.
Sunbeam Quarterback - ATX case review @ ClubOC
Since the year 2000, Sunbeam has been making case-mod accessories and PC enclosures. The Quarterback is from their mid-tower ATX line-up and comes equipped with some extra cooling. The Dual Core-Fan is a Sunbeam patent protected feature that can offer extra ventilation under the right circumstances. The case itself is sturdy enough to survive the rigors of LAN party life.
Kingwin 1000 Watt Mach 1 Power Supply Review @ ClubOC
When selecting a power supply, a Novice may look no further than the total wattage of the unit while an enthusiast will look for more stringent stats such as Active Power Filtering Circuits or the SLI Ready logo. As always, the competition among manufacturers is fierce which can reap huge benefits for the consumer. Advancements in the power supplies energy efficiency, the added aesthetics, and even shrinking the physical size of the unit itself, all go a long way in giving the consumer more of what they want.
HIS Radeon HD 3850 IceQ 3 TurboX Review @ Tweaktown
It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything from HIS which is a bit of a shame as their IceQ series of cards have been one of the more stand-out models of ATI based graphics cards. As we mentioned earlier, this particular model not only carries with it an aftermarket cooler but also increased core and memory clocks.
Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth Headset Review @ Futurelooks
There are countless units available from big boys like Motorola and Sony Ericsson. Of course, Plantronics is also up there too as we’ve reviewed one of their headsets (Plantronics Discovery 655) and gave it an Editors Choice. However, a little company based out of San Francisco has a headset that just might have all of them beat. You may not recognize the Aliph name, but you’ve surely heard about their Jawbone Bluetooth headset. After using the headset for a couple of days, I’m inclined to say that the Jawbone is the best Bluetooth headset I have ever used.
Razer Lachesis Gaming Mouse Review @ 3DXtreme
Well from the moment I pulled the Lachesis from the box I knew this mouse was going to be the one I settled on. Some of the newer mice are too light for me. The Lachesis was weighted more and I favored it right away. I found the layout to be comfortable, more comfortable than the Copperhead in fact. The bump forced my hand to rest on it in a more comfortable position and I liked the fact that the body of the Lachesis was longer. It fit my hand better than both the MX-518 (which I have used for years) and the Razer Copperhead.

MSI P35 Diamond Motherboard Review @ Tweaktown
Today MSI’s game has picked up, producing some of the most impressive boards we have seen. The Platinium boards are really impressing us, and today the Diamond has managed to become another high quality contender with just about every feature you’re going to want.
