Overclockers Online posted a review on the Ultra X-Pro 600W APFC

Anything short of solid does not do justice to these results. Not only was the power supply loaded up to the brim, but it also was put through quite harsh environments.

Techgage posted a review of Zalmans CNPS8000 CPU cooler

Zalman recently launched a new low-profile cooler by the name of CNPS8000. Physically it looks to have a lot of potential; It's a great looking product overall. Included is a fan speed controller for when you feel the need for an extra punch. Sadly, in our testing we have found even with that extra cooling ability, this cooler falls short.

XYZ Computing has a new article out on the SilverStone LC05 Mini-ITX Case

This time around we will be looking at the LC05 from SilverStone, an extremely slick looking case with a number of differences from the models we have reviewed in the past. The case is flat and stackable, so it should fit nicely into a number of areas where other enclosures would not, such as in with home theater equipment or as a desktop style case, possibly with a monitor on top of it. Perhaps the most interesting feature of this enclosure is that has an exposed 5.25" bay, which means you can used a full-sized optical drive or any number of other devices in this area.

ThinkComputers.org posted an ASUS WL-500W SuperSpeed N Wireless Router Review

ASUS isn't just known for its fantastic motherboards and bare-bones laptops. It also produces a series of wireless devices, most notably the WL-500G, an 802.11g-compliant wireless router that has a built-in USB port. The router can be combined with an external hard drive to set up a file server, or a printer to set up a print server. The WL-500W, the subject of this review, is the WL-500G's big brother. It is a pre-N router, meaning it supports the most current draft specifications of 802.11n as of its manufacture date and firmware revision. Read on for a investigative review.

Pro-Clockers posted a review on the Zalman CNPS9700LED CPU Cooler

The new CNPS9700LED shares the same exact appearance as its small brother only it's bigger. The fan size jumps from a moderate 92mm to an enormous 110mm. That alone should make the cooler outperform its smaller brother. But does it have enough performance in it to outperform the likes to the Thermalright Ultra-120 and the Scythe Infinity? Lets see.

Bigbruin.com has posted a review on the OCZ Technology PC2-8500 Platinum SLI-Ready Dual Channel DDR2 2GB Kit

Once again it is easy to see why OCZ Technology is one of the top brands in the gaming and enthusiast market. If you are looking for the absolute best performing RAM for your nVIDIA SLI system, you can not go wrong with the new OCZ Technology PC2-8500 Platinum SLI-Ready Dual Channel DDR2 2GB kit. With a modest (and easy) overclock, a performance boost of over 10% was achieved when compared to what was possible with another 2GB kit without EPP or nVIDIA SLI certification.

Bit-Tech posted a review on the game Neverwinter Nights 2

All in all, I hope the game manages to get the TLC that it so desperately deserves. Under this rough coat is a diamond, and it's not unlike Bioware titles to take up to a year to truly come into their own. But this one's not there yet, and we're going to give it a generous 8 based on the very real hope that it will eventually get there. For what the game is now, this figure might be a little too high for many tastes, but in a year it may be too low. A game like this is much like a fine wine or spirit - aging it a bit will add to its flavours and mellow the harsh overtones.

HotHardware.com takes a look at Gigabyte's GeForce 7950 GT PCI Express graphics card.

What's attractive about the GeForce 7950 GT is that it doesn't cost much more than a 7900 GT yet it offers nearly the same performance of a much pricier 7900 GTX. Additionally, the 7950 GT sports 512MB DDR3 clocked at 1.4GHz (effective). The GPU core runs at a speedy 550MHz. Just like the 7900 GT and GTX, the 7950 GT also boasts 8 vertex shaders and 24 pixel shaders.

Modders-Inc has a new review online on the B-Flexi Case Fans

Fans are a part of everyones computers. Without cooling fans things in the computer would come to a scorching halt in a hurry. Today we are going to take a look at Bluegears latest fan the B-Flexi. The B-Flexi is similar in design to their B-Ice fans. The major difference that the B-Flexi brings to the table is a four position switch (Off, Red, Blue, and Green) that allows you to change the color of the LEDs on the fan.

HowTo Forge posted a guide about tunneling MySQL connections through SSH

This is a description of how to set up a secure tunnel between your MySQL Server and a locally running MySQL Administrator using Putty. By creating a secure tunnel to your MySQL server using Putty, you can grant localhost access to powerful applications like MySQL Administrator while at the same time, make your server appear as if it isn't even there. In effect, make your MySQL server disappear from the outside world.
