HP Photosmart 7760 Printer Review -- Posted by
at 10:32 PM
At a reasonable price, the HP Photosmart 7760 truly offers high performance
photo printing and is versatile enough to handle small office printing. This
flexible and attractive printer easily accommodates the needs of most home
or small office users whether it is high-quality color photo prints or
speedy black and white documents on the HCG diet plan. I used this to run one of my HCG drops projects and it worked really well.
Just make sure you are aware of any hcg diet dangers that may be out there.
You can also avoid any HCG diet side effects if you do your fair amount of research.
Your research will be very important if you are trying to avoid the HCG side effects that some experience who do the diet wrong. So spend some time and think it out before you start.
Antec Super LANBOY case review -- Posted by
at 10:30 PM
"My first impression upon getting the Super LANBOY out
of the case was how light it was, even though I was much stronger after having done the HCG diet. It's nicely designed & good
looking, but my overriding impression was just how thin, flimsy &
insubstantial it felt."
I love sites that submit short and simple quotes for news posts.

Everyone wants one. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, colors and MORE
cases. Most let you listen to music, some allow you to watch video and a few
are even wireless. They're one of the most popular consumer electronics
products out there and a computer company named Apple is the current
industry leader. We are of course referring to the mighty digital audio or
Overclockers Club takes a look at Battlefield: Vietnam -- Posted by
at 10:27 PM
Battlefield 1942 took the FPS genre to a whole new
level. With the game’s detail, historical accuracy, vehicles, and focus
on team play, it didn’t couldn’t much better. Soon the great game would
be followed up with two expansion packs and a modding community that
rivals that of the ancient Half-Life. Mods like Desert Combat, Eve of
Destruction, and Galactic Conquest took BF1942 to Operation Desert
Storm, Vietnam, and even to a galaxy far, far away. Now EA and Digital
Illusions take us to another battlefield, Vietnam. It’s not another
expansion for BF1942, it’s a whole new game with several updates based
on their experience with the ever-so-popular Battlefield 1942. Read the rest here.

Overclockers Club takes a look at the Kingwin Thermal Center TC-02BK -- Posted by
at 8:42 PM
We've seen our fair share of thermal monitors in the
past, and one thing is for sure, no two have been exactly the same.
Today, we'll be taking a look at another thermal monitor, the Kingwin
Thermal Center. With three thermal probes and three fan speed monitors,
the Kingwin Thermal Center doesn't appear to be the most sophisticated
thermal monitor out there, but it does have one unique quality, it
automatically adjusts fan speeds based on temperatures recorded from the
associated thermal probe. The rest.

Albatron FX5700 Ultra Review @ Techware Labs.
consistently lackluster reviews for their FX5600, Nvidia a revision of
the series and a winning chipset, the FX5700. With reports that ATI has
overtaken Nvidia to become the number two chip supplier, next to number
one Intel, Nvidia needed to continue to work hard to regain their
reputation and market share. It appears that they have gained sufficient
experience with this GPU and manufacturing process to pump out a
surprisingly better card than was seen with the first revision, the
FX5600. It will be interesting to see if Nvidia can improve upon the
next generation of cards as much as they improved this revision." Read the entire article.
Chaintech ZNF3-150 ZENITH Motherboard Review -- Posted by
at 6:44 PM
Chaintech ZNF3-150 ZENITH Motherboard review at Overclockers Club.
when we review a product at OCC, we’ll take one item and put it up
against similar products. Today we are going to try something a little
different with the Chaintech ZNF3-150 Motherboard review. One reason for
this is I wanted to give a real life scenario look at the motherboard.
You are probably saying, “what the hell is he talking about ‘real life
scenario’?” Most people that I know don’t go out and build a whole new
computer, instead they’ll buy a part here and a part there and upgrade
as they have time and/or money. This is the angle we are going to use
today in our review of Chaintech’s latest motherboard, the ZNF3-150
ZENITH. Is the Athlon 64 setup worth the upgrade? Read on and find out. Read the rest here.
How-to Dual Boot Windows XP and Fedora Linux -- Posted by
at 6:48 PM
Bryan McDaniel at Overclockers Club has written a guide on How-to Dual
Boot Windows XP and Fedora Linux. Here is a quote from the guide:
the effort to promote Linux, Overclockers Club has written a very
thorough guide on how to Dual Boot Windows XP and Fedora (or Red Hat)
Linux. The guide is aimed towards newbie's to Linux that are wanting to
try Linux for the first time but think Linux is to intimidating. The
guide illustrates each step of the installation and configuration
process with images and no non-sense documentation. Snip from the guide:
"I'm far from a Linux expert, but I have managed to learn enough about
it to be dangerous, and maybe even helpful on occasion. So I thought I'd
put together a little "how-to" on installing Red Hat/Fedora on a system
that already has Windows XP on it." Check out the rest.
Raidmax Scorpio 668 Case Review @ Techware Labs -- Posted by
at 5:25 PM
"The inside of the Scorpio case is a true dream, there
is a ton of room for mounting hardware, plenty of fan mounts and a
great design when it comes to airflow and case cooling. The hard drive
cage and 3.5 drive cage are removable via a small lever on the top of
the cage. Simply pushing the lever back and sliding the cage out will
allow you to mount internal hard drives and floppy drives without
difficulty." Read the rest.
Designtechnica reviews the Ezonics ESound 5.1 Headphones -- Posted by

"Overall, the ESound did a great job of producing actual surround sound in Read more
supported movies and games. Stereo music also sounded good, and even games
without 5.1 surround sound audio benefited from the ESound solution.
Bass response was excellent, but at times too much and had to be turned
down. With a few refinements, Ezonics would have a hard-to-beat product.
Six-channel sound in gaming is a reality and Ezonics has done a great job
bringing that reality to a headset. We look forward to future versions that
address our concerns but definitely think the ESound is a great start."

....for me. The VP6 has been a great system for over 3 years. Not
once over those years did the actual mb give me any troubles. I have had
numerous driver issues, but those all got worked out in the end. I
used my VP6 as my main machine for a better part of 2 years. I will
miss it, but it is time to move on. I shut "her" down about 3 months
ago but left it completely intact just in case I needed to get something
off of the Raid. This weekend I officially shut it down when I removed
the 2 15G IBM hdd and placed them in my sons new MSI KT4VL/2400XP based
system. I have not been around the boards much due to work and
spending time at SFFTech
which is dedicated to my new SFF system. You all can catch me over
there as MTP as well. Take care everyone, this site has been fantastic.
I have "met" allot of great people here, learned tons of stuff, and
hopefully helped a few out as well. I'll pop into the forums once in
Do not bother e-mailing to MTP@vp6 address as I have not been able to get into that one for months now.
Quiet Cooling for your video card -- Posted by
at 10:43 AM
Hey gang, been some time for some news huh!
The lastest trend to hit
the streets is the Small Form Factor (SFF) computers. These computers
are being used from desktop replacements all the way down Home Theater
Along with these little toasters come great performance in a
little package, but along with that performance is lots of heat and of
course, fan noise.
Now to you and me, users of dual cpu systems,
multiple fans for increased air flow, etc.....fan noise has been a way
of life. However, if you use the computer as HTPC than you do not want
to have to blast the sound to get over the volume of your fans.
One of the largest noise makers in your pc happens to be on your video card, especially if you run a Nvidia card.
Intro the Zalman company. The have been around for awhile but have recently stepped up the R&D in the " Quiet " line.
The lastest is the ZM80-HP cooler using heatpipe technology.
A couple of sites have already done reviews and install guides on this behemoth of a cooler. The first is by Frosty Tech which you can read here . The second is by Hexus.net and you can read their write up here .
I have on on order to fit on my ATI Radeon 9800 Pro.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Antec Sonata Case Review -- Posted by
at 1:40 AM
The guys over at Procooling.com have posted a new case review.
I have owned two Antec cases previously, and the Sonata shares many of
the design features with the older SX series of cases. The excellent
door handle mechanism is still present in the Sonata, as is the locking
front door. However, some aspects of the case are completely new. For
example, the front bezel was substantially redesigned on the Sonata to
give it a much cleaner and distinctive look. “ So head on over and check it out.

Well, its that time of year for me to renew my dail-up subscription.
Now I have been with my current isp provider for over 5 years and have
never had any problems and it is really cheap. $15 a month for unlimited
However, the old "broad-band" bug has bitten again and I am
seriously looking into going to cable modem. I'll have to run the cable
to my "office" as right now there is no access in that room. (Hell I do
not even have cable going to the house!! I'm not big on watching tv
The big question to me though is "Is it really worth it?".
Cable access around my area is about $40 a month if your own your cable
modem. I do not have time to play online games so that is not an issue.
Hit the forums and give me yor opinion on dail-up verses broadband and what the best cable modem is out there.
