Antec Notebook Cooler To Go Review

<center><img src="http://lanoc.org/images/stories/Reviews/antec_coolertogo/email.jpg"></center><br> The notebook cooling market has lately been flooded with makes and models, each attempting to tackle the heat issue that often comes with portable computers, especially in those used for gaming. Antec recently released their latest addition, the Notebook Cooler To Go, which is designed as you may have guess to be portable. Having reviewed similar products in the past, that portability is often acquired through the sacrifice of performance. Given Antec's reputation for effciency, I was anxious to see how the Cooler To Go stacked up against not only it's similar-sized competition but also the bulkier models that are often required for higher cooling rates.<br><br><br> Via [<a href="http://lanoc.org/review/hardware/laptop/3067-antec-notebook-cooler-to-go" target="new">LanOC Reviews</a>]

Zalman Z7 Plus Mid Tower Case Review

Zalman is really not a company you think about when it comes to PC Cases.  They are really more known for their awesome CPU coolers.  If you have seen a Zalman PC Case they have been very high-end and quiet expensive for most people.  Zalman is introducing their first mainstream case, the Z7 Plus that is made to be affordable, but at the same time offer you many features that are found in higher priced cases.  Let’s take a look at the Z7 Plus and see if it is the perfect case for you!

G.Skill PIS Series DDR3-2400 4GB Dual Channel Memory Kit Review

Up to this point the fastest memory I have owned was DDR3-2000. The guys at G.Skill contacted me recently to ask if I was interested in memory even faster than that…of course I was! G.Skill is one of those companies that I knew was out there but I had never really considered their memory in the past, as most I usually purchase from the “household name” companies. But G.Skill is not a newcomer to the memory industry, having been in business building memory since 1989. Today I will be looking at G.Skill’s latest, a DDR3-2400 4GB kit with timings of 9-11-9. This memory has been engineered specifically for the Intel Core i7 860/870 LGA 1156 processor and P55 Express chipset. Of course the memory operates at Intel’s max VDIMM of 1.65v, and it comes with a very nice cooling fan. Read on to check out the G.Skill PIS Series DDR3-2400 memory!

ASRock X58 Extreme3 Intel X58 Motherboard Review

The problem is the other new technologies that have just emerged, SATA 6 Gb/s and USB 3. Most of us had no idea that either was in the works when the Core i7/X58 emerged. Going to the expense of buying the new Core i7 980X, you definitely want the latest data transfer technologies, and with an older X58 board, the only way you will get them is with PCI expansion cards. But, the motherboard manufacturers are ready for this, and some have already released new models of X58 boards supporting SATA 6 Gb/s and USB 3. Today I will be looking at the ASRock X58 Extreme 3, their new top-of-the-line board. It not only supports SATA 6 Gb/s and USB 3, but also supports eSATA 6Gb/s. Read on to check out the ASRock X58 Extreme3!

How to find out the Model of the Motherboard You Have

Knowing who makes your motherboard and what model you have is very important. Many motherboards have new drivers and BIOS updates that fix problems with the motherboard once it has been released. To download and install these updates you need to know the exact model name and manufacturer of your motherboard. Many people who have built their own computer should already know this, but if you somehow forget or you have purchased your computer from a store this guide will easy show you where to find this information.
