  • DDR Memory Chipset

    Published: Sunday, July 16, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Trying to keep up with current news I found this over at SysOpt today. Personally I like things in pairs but after looking at this chipset solution I might just reconsider......Then again running dual K7's might be pretty cool. here's a clip

    "Intel has already positioned itself with the Rambus memory architecture and has shown little interest in DDR memory types. DDR capable chipsets must be developed by other manufacturers, such as VIA, SIS, and ALI. Until recently, VIA was positioned to take the lead as the first company to produce a DDR chipset, but things have changed. In December 1999, Micron took the lead with its new DDR Samurai chipset. It proved that DDR was something besides fiction, and has laid the way for future DDR implementations."

  • Tyan Tiger 133

    I've had my eye on this board for some time but got turned off to it due to the poor memory performance of the VIA chipset. I guess that's not really the case anymore. Too bad it won't overclock, Then again Tyan never really endorsed overclocking. Personally I still like my Tiger 100 and since it does support P3 Coppermines it can't be that bad.

    Ars has always had good stuff on getting the most out of your computer. Back in the day I went here to learn all about tweaking NT.

    Today I noticed a new article at Ars that might interest you security buffs. Securing Windows 2000. He goes though setting up accounts to securing your workstation from not only crackers on the internet but also that quiet guy in the office we don't know about.

    At the end of the article he has links to sites that will analyze your system for bugs and then email the problems and solutions to you.

    One of my favorites was this site used a product that I'm familiar with, Webtrends, to do the site analysis.

    I started a thread in the forums to discuss this post.

  • HDD Cooler Installation

    I just finished my HDD Cooler Installation Project. It was a very simple install and only took me about 15min to complete (minus the time to take the photos).

    Believe it or not this cooler works just as good as the "traditional" coolers that I have on my other machine and makes less noise.
