Do you hate the puny stock heatsink and CPU fan’s included in the package when you purchase a new processor? Yeah, me too! Do you by default just set the stock stuff aside and install your big boy heatsink and fan? Yeah, me too. Then you know very well that when you overclock any CPU every degree you can lower the temperature the longer it will live.
I had been search for a good Tablet for a while now, but have been waiting for the right features and the right price for me. So last week, I found the ViewSonic gTablet going for $299.99 on Amazon and I jumped right on it.
I had been drive my 2006 Toyota Corolla LE for a while now and I was fairly happy with the service it was providing until my family grew from two to four. Yup, having two kids will always result in the need for more space not just in the car but in your homes too. So when planning on having kids, also consider the cost of a bigger car and maybe a bigger living space. This is where my new 2011 Honda Pilot EX SUV comes into play to replace my still young 2006 Toyota Corolla that I loved dearly.

I recently purchased the Logisys Laser LED LL-B blue light to accent the interior of the Thermaltake Armor A90 SECC ATX Mid Tower computer case. Due to the vast interior in this Thermaltake product, I was having trouble viewing all the corners when the system was powered on in Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Nowadays, everybody seems to either have notebooks or netbooks because they are small and portable. They are great but sometimes they don’t come with any optical drives built-in or the optical drive is built-in to a docking station/port replicator that you have to purchase separately. But since you are going to have to buy an external optical drive sooner or later, you may want to consider the Archgon Mobile Optical Disk Drive (MD-9102).
Lately, headphones and earphones have been getting better and better in terms of design and quality. You can get very good bass and overall great sound quality with small earphones, but nothing beats having the comfort of padded headphones with the ability to make and answer calls and all that without any wires.

Are you thinking about about protecting your $200 smartphone that you just bought and now are locked in with it for the next two years? There are very cheap options available to meet your needs.

I am one of those who purchased the Motorola Droid X on launch day (07/15/2010) and best of all, I was due for an upgrade. I had the ever popular Motorola Droid (original or 1) before and while I loved it, I wanted a bigger and faster device. I was debating between the iPhone 4 and the Droid X but guess which device won me over?
USB 2.0 and Firewire have been around for quiet some time but there is always the need for faster data transfers. We recently looked at what the new USB 3.0 interface can do and it’s no joke. The eSATA interface is supposed to be faster than USB 2.0 with a maximum of 6 Gbps data transfer rate and it comes very close to the speeds of USB 3.0.
We test as many CPU coolers as we can because you just can’t ever have enough cooling in any system. So today we are testing the Evercool Transformer 4 CPU cooler on our brand new rig to see how it cools that. This CPU cooler has four heat-pipes with large aluminum fins to cool effectively. We will not be able to compare the results of the results from this test with our previous CPU cooler tests because of our new test system.
Hard drive enclosures are now beginning to adopt the USB 3.0 interface which is supposed to blow USB 2.0 and any other interface out of the water. Today we are testing the Sunbeam Tech Airbox USB 3.0 Enclosure to see how much faster it really is. The Airbox can handle 3.5″ or 2.5″ (won’t be secure) drives. We will test it with our Samsung HD501IJ 500GB SATA 3.0GBps hard drive. Unlike other compact enclosure this one has a cooling fan with LED, so it cools while looking cool at the same time. It can support drives up to 2TB (terabytes) so you have a lot of room to expand. Let’s see how fast it really is.
