myWORLD Hardware has just posted their latest review article on Albatron KM18GPro, featuring nForce 2 IGP+MCP

From OCC: Arctic Silver has established itself as one of (if not the) best manufactures of thermal compound. The Arctic Silver 3 thermal compound offered great heat transfer, and was the highest recommended compound in by users in our forums. So what happens when Arctic Silver tries to take things up a notch? We'll find out when we take a look at the “Evolution of Cool”, Arctic Silver's Céramique. And to make things interesting, we'll add Arctic Silver's closest competition, Nanotherm Silver XTC, to the fray.

Viper Lair checks out the usefulness of the 'Game Accelerator' feature on the ABIT IC7.

"Does this game really need an introduction? Ok I’ll humour you for a bit then. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a one of a series of controversial games produced by Rockstar games, a very talented bunch indeed. This highly awaited title was first released on Sony’s Playstation 2 console, and then it finally made its way to the PC a few months later. Vice City is Grand Theft Auto 3 deluxe, it has a whole new map, the graphics are nicer, there are more cars and it’s set in the 1980’s in a Miami Vice style city. Ahhh the eighties…"

ClubOC checks out the Vantec iON 400 Watt Power Supply, basically a PSU with SATA power connectors.

The original Noblesse case wasn;t exactly a looker, IMO. MikhailTech reviews the Noblesse SE. Lets see if they're improved any.

With the official launch of Microsoft's PocketPC 2003 drawing near HardwareAnalysis takes a look at Asus' new entry into the PocketPC arena, the MyPal a620, featuring PocketPC 2003, a 400MHz Intel PXA255 processor and 64MB of memory.
