bench-house.com: Intel 2.2GHz Pentium 4 Northwood Review

Quote: "For the comparison to be as true to real world conditions as possible the test results were acquired on ASUS' i845D based mobo. Another peculiarity of this review is that we compared the new P4 with AMD Athlon XP 1800+! Wait - that's not all - 1800+ XP managed to overpower 2.2GHz P4 in some benchmarks!!! This is mostly caused by the benchmarking software not being optimized for SSE2 set of instructions, but not that many real world applications are optimized for it either (still)."

littlewhitedog.com: Eclipse S Case Review

Quote: " There are two interior fan mounts available in this case, one in the lower front, and another in the rear wall near the area where your CPU will reside. The rear fan mount is positioned very well, but the "case integrated" fan guard could hinder some of your precious airflow. The front fan mount has some serious issues - when the front bezel was designed, the designers were smart enough to cut a circular hole in the back of the bezel so the fan could draw air through the bezel, but it is not positioned properly."


Hardwareluxx.com: Samsung Spin Point Tested

Quote: "The SV8004H is a 5400rpm-drive, but it surprised us with 7200-like performance in our benchmarks. In addition to that, the drive is very cheap with 169 - so it has the best pro-GB-price in our tests." In German.

penstarsys.com: Soyo K7V Dragon Plus Review

Quote: "While it seems that this motherboard has been reviewed to death, very few have dealt with the problems that I and many others have encountered with this board.  The board is an overall good product, and works great out of the box.  But once certain upgrades are made, the board starts to look a lot less shiny."


amdmb.com: Thermalright AX-7 Heatsink Review

Quote: " This heatsink does extremely well under all the conditions thrown at it, and does it with a more reasonable price than we are used to!"
