Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".

heh.  Darn those Keyboard Sprains and Mouse Cramps.

I just jammed in a couple of 512MB Sticks of OCZ PC3200 Rev2 Cas2 DDR.  They are the ones with the classy copper heatspreaders.  At the moment, I'm running my timings as tight as my BIOS will allow, though I'm at 333MHz right now.  The only thing the RAM can't do at this speed is CAS 1.5.  Smokin'!

I snagged a set of Logitech Z-640 Speakers.  They aren't digital, but they sure have a lot better range in the sattelites than my old speakers, and boy howdy (no offense HD), do they ever pound!  Very clear at all volume levels tested so far.

just got me a Toshiba 2.4 Intel Laptop, its pretty sweet, but I seriously have only had like 30 minutes to play with it so far, right now its dual-booting between XP Pro and Red Hat 9, but from what I have done with it so far, its pretty nice to have, and is going to be super handy

This is real [H]ardware:

I snagged a BlackIce Extreme Rev2 New Evo Rad.  This morning I ran some Full Load Tests, and I was running 35°C Full load at 2.319GHz, at 1.8v.  The room was not as hot as mid-day of course, but at full load overclocked, this rad really shines! ;D

I've picked up the retail box Sapphire Atlantis 9800 Pro from Dallmann Computers.  They've made some improvements to the stock cooling since the 9700 Pro.  It is much easier to watercool.

I bought a new 120GB WD JB Drive.  Gives me a little more space than my old 40GB.


Other NEWS.   No More OT Posts, I really mean it!

I've snagged an A7N8X Deluxe and a 120GB SATA WDJD Drive.  The A7N8X is a tremendous board.  I've scored over 3GB/sec memory bandwidth in Sisoft without really even trying. . . gotta love Dual Channel OCZ!

Alright, someone else with the Asus board!  So far I love this mobo, rock solid and nice and fast.  Also are you going to do a review on that WD hard drive?  Also WD is bringing out a 74 GB Raptor Drive too.

Picked up a 460w Enermax Power Supply, the old US Can 300w wasn't cutting the mustard, with 3 optical drives, 2 hd's, 9700, etc.

I sold my 15" Second monitor to my folks, and picked up a 17" Trinitron for my #2 monitor.  It's nice running dual 17".  The Dell runs up to 1600x1200.  And even 1280x1024@75Hz.

Yeah, BCC & Dell. . . It's a trinitron tube and looks great.
