    I caught a glimpse of this over at the Freeway Designs website the other day. It would seem that they have designed a "orb" that is approvd to 1.3GHz. It looks alot like the Golden Orb in some regards except that this cooler is made of copper unlike the "Glorb".

    The nice guys at the Freeway Designs home office in Taipei. Where nice enough to send me a sample of one of their latest products the FWD-P3C4XD for review.

    This board features dual socket 370 processors, AGP Pro, onboard sound, and a sexy red PCB. That is to not mention a variety of core voltages and FSB to 166 MHz.
    I see quite a potential with this board.

    This time its the cool guys at Penny Arcade. Not sure what their stand is on the new chip but if there is a cartoon about it, it has to be good.

    The infamous non-NS6 compatible website [H]ardocp got their hands on a P4 fitted with the works. Other sites out there have also posted P4 goodness. They are..

    NT Compatible posted a game tweak guide for Windows NT/2K on their site. Some of the things that they talk about are pretty simple solutions to increase performance but some of the others I didn't even know about. Take a look.
