Belkin 8-Port Network Switch
WebMasterP
There comes a day in every news poster's life where there just is not much going on. Today is one of those days. The only information I've received that had a working link is BlargOC's review of the Belkin 8-Port Network Switch. While it's not the most exciting product ever reviewed, at least it's something.

WebMasterP
I'm sure a lot of you have seen those pre-made water cooling cases. Well, Sudhian has taken a look at such as case, in their review of the CPUfx Koolmax - Kool 101 Case. This is one expensive unit so make sure you can pay rent before you buy it. Smile

Samsung HDDs
WebMasterP
If you asked me to yell out the first hard drive manufacturer I could think of Samsung would not be my answer. In all actuality, it probably wouldn't even be my 3rd or 4th. Samsung just is not a company that I associate with HDDs. However, I think Samsung would like it if you and I did just that and you can start by checking out TechwareLabs' review of the Samsung SP8004H 80GB and SP4002H 40GB HDDs.

Every once in a while an article comes to my attention that fits into the category of "Hrmmmmmm". Today, Future looks has fit an article into that category with their write up A Psychological Perspective on eBay. It is actually a full five pages on this guys perspective on eBay. It might be worth a read if you are bored at the office or something. I do not think the guy has a PhD in Psychology or anything but, still, opinions are always interesting. Smile

GlobalWin CAK4-86

GlobalWin has always been one of my favorite heatsink makers and their CAK series of heatsinks has always been one of my favorites (mostly because pronouncing the acronym sounds like someone from Boston trying to say Cock). Anyway, ExtremeOverclocking.com has give the GlobalWin CAK4-86 a good looking over. Check it out.


Akasa ShinEtsu TIPs
WebMasterP
To be honest I usually don't give a rat's ass about thermal pads. However, Tech PC has reviewed the Akasa ShinEtsu Thermal Interface Pad. I figure if they are going to bother writing a review on a thermal pad it might just be worth a look. Smile

EX Hardware is divorced hardware (har har), or wait, no. They have a review of the AMD Athlon XP 2200+. If you want to know more, read the review all I can really tell you it's that it's clocked at 1.8 GHz and I don't have one. Smile

Thermaltake Copper Fan Grills
