A look at VIA's next-gen Isaiah x86 CPU Architecture @ Tech Report
A brand-new x86 processor microarchitecture doesn't come along every day, but today, we have just that. We visited the offices of VIA Technologies' processor subsidiary, Centaur Technology, Inc., yesterday to learn about its new x86-compatible processor architecture. Remarkably, Centaur President Glenn Henry and his team of less than 100 people have created a thoroughly modern x86 processor microarchitecture from scratch over the course of the last four years. The resulting design, which bore the code-named CN during its development and is also known as the VIA Isaiah microarchitecture, is a superscalar 64-bit processor with speculative, out-of-order execution.

Thermaltake ToughPower 1000 Modular Power Supply @ Pro-Clockers
Thermaltake's latest offering is geared toward such a person that need an all out power house. And Thermaltake is fast becoming a name that is associated with high-end power supplies. But things have changed since the introduction of the ToughPower line. The 1000 watt ToughPower is not the biggest baddest of the line but will easily power most of the systems we build today. Coupling large amounts of power and some modular cabling, you have a boatload of power and with some easy cable management. And because this unit is not the most powerful of the line you don't have to worry about spending a lot of money like say the 2000 watt unit we saw at CES in Vegas this year. So. Lets take a look at the Thermaltake TP1000 Modular.

Logitech ChillStream Actively Cooled Gamepad Review @ Tweaknews
To say the least, this controller is a mixed bag of pros and cons with neither of them propping the product to be a winner or pushing it down to being an absolute failure. Sure this is a good ergonomic controller which should perform its gaming tasks with ease, but the main defining characteristic, the cooling, needs work.
Xigmatek MAC-S3501 DDR/DDR2 Memory Heatspreaders Review @ Frostytech
Xigmatek's MAC-S3501 memory heatspreaders are intended for DDR and DDR2 memory modules, and assuming the sticks of memory you have are bare, installation is a quick affair. A thin strip of jelly silicon thermal interface is laid down on the DRAM, and then the anodized aluminum Xigmatek MAC-S3501 heatspreaders are set in place. If on the other hand your memory already has heatspreaders that are attached with adhesive or frag tape, there's a good chance you may destroy your memory if you attempt to remove the heatspreaders.
