Ulti-mat Silver Edition mouse mat @ A1 Electronics

Snip: Our first impression of this Ulti-mat Silver Edition mouse mat is that yes, our mice really do slip-slid on this surface. Really. While at the same time we get spot-on precision of the mouse pointer. Full review @ A1 Electronics

Kingston U3 DataTraveler Reviewed @ BIOS

Snip: The U3 platform is an exciting innovation and Kingston?s U3 DataTraveler is an excellent implementation. In many way, using a U3 DataTraveler is a lot like carrying around your very own personal computer on a flash drive, and those concerned with using a public computer will like the extra security.

GeForce 7950 GX2 details

Nordic Hardware have details on the retail version of NVIDIA’s dual-GPU card; GeForce 7950GX2. Snip: NVIDIA has decided to launch its GeForce 7950GX2 cards on May 30 after having decided between a number of dates in May. The reason for the delay of the retail version of NVIDIA’s dual-GPU card wasn’t revealed but there seems to have been some technical difficulties. Read @ NordicHardware

Lian Li PC-S80B Aluminum Server Case @ Virtual-Hideout

Snip: The muffler on the back and foam padding throughout the case help reduce the sound transmissions. There is even foam around the door on the case. That is mostly aftermarket stuff, but it’s all included in the Lian Li PC-S80B! Full review @ Virtual-Hideout

XG Duro 900 Power Supply @ Techgage

Snip:?If the motherboard is the brain of any PC then the power supply is the heart. Today we?re taking a look at a power supply that has all the heart you should need for any modern enthusiast system and the cost won?t put your wallet on life support. Full review @ Techgage

Canon PowerShot SD630 @ Designtechnica

Snip: Three of the biggest trends for 2006 are digicams with more potent 6-megapixel imagers, larger 3-inch LCD screens and higher sensitivity (ISO). For those not swimming in the digital camera sea every day, 6MP imagers are the new sweet spot for most manufacturers, up from 5 last year and 4MP the in 2004. Since next year is 2007, will 7MP be new standard at that time? Who cares? We?ll deal with what?s currently in our hands–which are cameras with ever higher resolution. Full review @ Designtechnica

PowerColor X1900XTX 512MB @ Overclockers Online

Snip: It is not often that I get the chance to play with the most powerful video card on the market. It is also not often I get the chance to play with one of the newest video cards on the market. So when I was offered both of those luxuries in one small package I couldn’t turn the opportunity down and sleep with myself at night. The PowerColor X1900XTX can only be summed up by one word…awesome.? Full review @ Overclockers Online

Swiftech MCR-320 “Quiet Power” Series Radiator @ OCIA

Snip: The MCR320 uses a combination of brass tubes and copper cooling fins for improved cooling. They also usea patent pending end tank design with 3/8" NPT fittings for improved flow and system bleeding. The radiator has a nice gloss black finish with just the edges of the cooling fins painted. This leaves the majority of the copper cooling fins exposed for improved heat dissipation. Full review @ OCIA

The large RivaTuner FAQ @ 3DChip

Snip: It’s quite usual to find questions like "how can I unlock some capacities on my graphic card and which tool shall I use?", "how to monitor my gpu-temprature?" in our community. The answers are always the same and point into one direction: The RivaTuner – one of the most powerful tuning-tools. We took the chance and collected some information and made a very simple FAQ out of it. Three frequently asked questions (how to unlock your graphic card, how to monitor the temperature and last but not least, how to overclock a graphic card) we answered with detailed, illustrated instructions.

2GB Corsair XMS DDR2-667 CL4 Memory @ PCMasters

Snip (German): Im heutigen Artikel werden wir mit dem 2 GB Kit von Corsair einen mit 667 MHz getakteten DDR2-RAM der Oberklasse testen. Wie viel Performancegewinn ausschlie?lich durch Arbeitsspeicher erreicht werden kann, werden wir genau untersuchen. Dazu nat?rlich auch die Overclocking-M?glichkeiten und die Geschwindigkeitssteigerung durchs ?bertakten und Latenz-Tuning. Full review @ PCMasters (German)

Overclocked Conroe does Super PI 1MB in 16 seconds

The guys at hkepc have some screenshots of Intel’s new desktop chip, Conroe overclocked from the stock 2.13Ghz to 3.1Ghz – allegedly on the stock heatsink completing a Super PI 1MB run in…… 16 seconds! If these Conroe reports/previews from the last few months are true it’s going to be one hell of a chip!

Cooler Master Stacker 830 Chassis @ Viper Lair

Snip: We know a lot of people will grumble about how there are plenty of cases that have good features at more than half the cost. We’re not going to disagree as we’ve worked with other manufacturers that offer good products at lower prices, including Cooler Master’s own Centurion series. Then again, I do not need an Acura MDX either when a Dodge Caravan will do the job I require. Now, we can sit here and try to justify it, but Cooler Master did not really design this case for the average Joe who just wants a basic enclosure. Whoever is going to look into the Stacker 830 probably has money to burn and in this price range we think the Stacker 830 is the best choice out there. Full review @ Viper Lair

Point of View GeForce 7900GTX 512MB @ techPowerUp!

Snip: Today we take a look at the Point of View 7900 GTX, which is based on the current high end chip from NVIDIA, the G71. The GeForce 7900 Series was introduced during CeBIT this year, and has replaced the old 7800 Series line up. A major change is the increased clock speed of 650 MHz on the core and 1600 MHz on the GDDR3 memory. While the card is not exactly budget at $499 it is still cheaper than most other 7900 GTX cards from the competition. Full review @ techPowerUp!

DFI’s RD580 motherboard @ Bit-tech

Snip: The board is solid, well built, reasonably stable and is pretty overclockable too. The BIOS is great and is a tweaker’s heaven. We feel that it needs to mature a little to allow for more overclocking headroom. You should start to see more of this board’s potential ooze out in the bucket load as more BIOS revisions come out.
