ABIT Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI - motherboard - ATX - LGA775 Socket - nForce 650i SLI 26/10/2007

ABIT Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI - motherboard SLI

ABIT Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI - motherboard - ATX - LGA775 Socket - nForce 650i SLI this is the newest motherboard to my collection and the 1 i use the most when i got this one i noticed that all the specs and the layout of the board are identical to the asus board i reviewed earlier but more care has been put into this board a soon as you poen the box i noticed better packaging no cheap coragated cardboard wraped around this one it looked as it was a trophy in its own cabinet once you remove the board from the box there is a hidden door behind the board holding all the extra accesories inc 4x sata cables (asus only had 2) 1 ide cable for your cd drive and 1 floppy cable and 1 sli bridge for joining 2gfx cards together on the picture of the product there a 3 black heatsinks the 1 on the bottom left the asus board does not have also this board has a spdif output (optical output for sound) which asus doesnt have also bearing in mind that these boards are identical both in looks and specs but not in performance the abit wins for me as it was designed by the world champion gamer jonathan fatal1ty wendel more care has been put in this board than any other board i have ever owned even if you dont use your computer for games this board for its low price of 68 quid is well worth a go and the performance is there if needed you could even use it in a server as it will support 32 gb of memory and the latest 3.0ghz quad core extreme cpu no overclocking skills needed. Instead, a supercharged, factory overclocked system bus provides the hidden powers ...

Zalman CNPS Processor cooler (CNPS9700 NT) 26/10/2007

ZALMAN CNPS 9700 NT

Zalman CNPS Processor cooler (CNPS9700 NT) being a gamer and a pc mod enthusiast i had to get 1 of these i have owned this fan now for 6 months and i would highly reccomend at the moment i am running it on a 3.4 ghz pentium d dual core cpu which out of all the intel cpus run at high temperature temperatures on the origonal fan supplied by intel my temperatures were @ 3.4 ghz not under load 48 degrees under full load 52 degrees @4.2 ghz not under load 57 degrees under full load 68 degrees on the zalman fan @ 3.4 ghz not under load 36 degrees 41 degrees under full load @ 4.2 ghz not under load 40 degrees 49 degrees under full load that impressed me alot the first time i used it and i will be looking forward to sticking it on a quad core cpu which you will then see its true performance noise to say that it is a 120mm cooler which is noticeably 3 times bigger than the standard intel cooler it is alot quieter when flat out compared to when the intel isnt flat out due to the 120 mm fan it doesnt need a high rpm hence the silence from the cooling experts zalman good points fitted my abit fatality motherboard with ease quiet good looking light weight exelent cooling nice lit up at night in green no cheap plastic parts like intel stock fan bad points have to remove board to fit not easy to fit but easier than the intel stock fan realy big so may not fit your board may catch on northbridge heatsink can suck in a fair bit of dust ...

Transformers (DVD) did you know the citroen c2 advert on the tv with the robotic car are the same people who made the robots in transfrormers 2007 right from the begining of this film i was captivated by the storyline and effects and throughout the film i was so amazed in how far special effects have progressed especialy in this movie robots being punched into the air and landing right in front of the camera fast driving action and heavy duty robot fight scenes what more could you want i will tell you truthully as a child and now as a adult i have never had any intrest in transformers but when i watched this movie it blew me away i am now definatly going to be watching this a few more times and i am hoping the the talented guys who created this movie and all those effects create another its a hit Shia LaBeouf who plays Sam Witwicky plays a exelent part and fits in perfect hes like a new john mclain cast Shia LaBeouf ...

Evergreen Boy - Steve Forbert 21/10/2007

Return To House On Haunted Hill DVD 2007

Evergreen Boy - Steve Forbert yeh yeh i know it isnt out yet but i managed to watch it and so that i dont spoil the movie i wont go into to much detail the movie unlike other recent horror movies doesnt take too long to throw in those scary moments (about 5 mins) and boy is it scary and jumpy although i personaly would say the scenes are more gruscome than scary. ghosts with gunshot holes in their head brains being ripped out and the best bits the fit naked girls kissing each other until well i aint gonna tell you what happens next lol youll have to watch for yourself recent horror movies with scary titles which sound realy good have been a real letdown not this one i realy enjoyed it and i think there might be a third whhhhoooo its realy worth watching my only letdown was that the movie felt short. but a good ending awsome effects also available in hd dvd my out of 10 sound effects 10-10 surround sound 10-10 cast 9-10 story 9-10 gore 15-10 its gorey as hell nudity 10-10 scare 9-10 visual effects 15-10 nudity quality 10-10 actors 9-10 cast Amanda Righetti ...

Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars (PC) 19/10/2007

Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars (PC)

Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars (PC) my experience with this new game i was very impressed with the graphics the ease of the controls and no akward camera angles and the smoothness of gameplay i was unimpressed with annoying voices in the game which repeat all the time e.g why thankyou non stop arrrhhh repetitive strain injury on my ears . turn the sound off the game instantly feels better maybe they could patch this in an update? you choose from either humans or aliens then select what you want to be e.g a engineer or special forces or others each one you select have different objectives and different weapons i.e planting bombs calling fo air strikes building gun turrets and more there is quite a number of vehicles to use in game ranging from boats quads jet packs trucks tank and aircraft and all are enjoyable although i enjoyed this game apart from the sounds i do seem to think it is just battlefield 2142 underneath all the changed vehicles players and scenery e.g the ranking system is very similar also the maps are not as big as bf2142 on the whole i would recomend this game but not highly but i do reccomend downloading the demo first if you are thinking of buying demo link here http://www.enemyterritory.com/main.html?cid=3&deeplink=3&deeplink2= undefined thankyou for reading my review ...

Corsair XMS2 Pro DRAM 2 GB PC2-6400

Corsair XMS2 Pro Xtreme Performance TwinX Matched - DDR2 - 2 GB : 2 x 1 GB - DIMM 240-pin - 800 MHz maybe if you bought and tested this memory in you own pc you would have a better experience than i did but in my own honest opinion i wouldnt buy . i highly reccomend corsairs memory just not the pro versions p.s corsairs memory has a lifetime waranty why is that? because it doesnt fail except the pro in my opinion pros prices are dropping rapidly and soon maybe wont be selling had 3 sets of this memory and it let me down shuting my system of without warning and fried my mother board an expert told me that the pro versions of the memory had lower mhz than normal but was factory overclocked to 800 mhz hence hig heat and unstableness recomended normal xms 2 corsairc6400 memory which i got now runs cooler and quicker due to lower timings pro overpriced for a big plastic heat spreader and flasing lights which use up more voltage and create more heat my opinion its like a vauxhall corsa with a big body kit on looks good goes slower p.s i dont like corsas neither just aquick example next time u see a anoying corsa go by think of this memory didnt impress me when working ...
