OCZ’s 1333Mhz DDR3 Reapers certainly look the part, but never judge a book by its cover.

In November last year, our very own Stan Miranda and Jake Mete were the first to receive a pre-production model of CoolIT’s Freezone Elite CPU cooler for NordicHardware. It may have encountered a welcoming reception back then, but can it remain victorious in today’s changing market?

Creative Labs has been through some choppy seas lately with their Vista drivers and PR issues.? We’ll be taking a very close look at their new X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty sound card and see if Creative can shake their Vista woes and reclaim their former glory.

Thermaltake’s V14Pro CPU cooler – be careful boys, there’s a decent amount of sharp edges in there.

Palit has produced their own Radeon 4850 with a heatsink that promises to lower those high temperatures and provide great framerates.? We’ll see if that’s true very soon.

Silverstone’s Raven has a hard act to follow – the Razer DeathAdder – although the rodent’s uniqueness will hopefully get it across the line safely.

AMD’s answer to Nvidia’s GTX 200 series came in three different forms – the HD 4870, HD 4850 and the dual-GPU HD 4870 X2. We’ll be publishing our evaluation on the latter shortly.

Finally (well, for the near distant future at least) XigmaTek have been kind enough to provide their HDT-SD964 CPU cooler, as well as the Red Scorpion S1283.

Soon thereafter we’ll continue with reviews of NZXT’s Whisper full tower case, Tagan’s Black Pearl and BZ-700 power supply, a full Thermaltake ESA system setup, and among many other things, an Asus Rampage motherboard.

Until then, you can pass the time by checking out our MSI X48 Platinum review, which is fresh off the press. Kudos to MSI UK for providing the board and Xoxide for furnishing us with the HSPC Tech Station Kit.
