  • WaterCooled GeForce2

    Published: Sunday, December 31, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Hypothermia has posted an article on water cooling his Hercules GeForce2.

    He has great attention to detail, right down to the blue anodized goodies that cover the GPU and RAM and from an aesthetic standpoint, this is the best water-cooling mod I have ever seen.

    Kyle has done it again with another "how-to" on overclocking.

  • SUMA Platinum GeForce2 Pro

    Published: Wednesday, December 27, 2000 | By: Dennis

    SUMA, a small company, which I?ve never heard of, is releasing a Black GeForce2 Pro video card. I found a review of this card in prototype form at Tom's Hardware.

    Here are just some of the cool features that are included with this card.
    5ns DDR memory, 200Mhz/400Mhz clock speed and AGP Pro! They also have a pretty sweet looking TwinView MX card too.

  • Anandtech Dream System

    Published: Tuesday, December 26, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Much like Arstechnica, Anandtech creates a computer building(buying) guide and outlines different systems based on purpose. Being a builder myself I get a kick out of these articles from time to time.

    Though since most of us that build systems do so to get the best system for the least amount of money it doesn't seem practical to follow a guide that has a bottom line of 10 grand.

  • P4 Overclocking Guide

    Published: Sunday, December 24, 2000 | By: Dennis

    I caught glimpse of this over at GamePC today and was very surprised. Normally I'm not real big on first generation hardware releases, but for the P4 I might make an exception.

    The Pentium 4 looks like it will be a great platform for the CyberAthlete. You will get great memory bandwidth due to Rambus, the highest CPU clock speeds, and double-digit multipliers. See the review at GamePC.

  • Iwill KA266-R DDR Motherboard

    Published: Saturday, December 23, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Now that the DDR chipsets have been on the market for a month or so I've been quite curious about how they perform. We all know what DDR does for video technology and bandwidth but how would a processor use it. Club Overclocker has a review of Iwill's offering to this new platform with some interesting benchmarks to boot.
