Generic PSU Test by Ed Light
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/534/1 Dissection and testing of a generic 500W PSU. It turned out to be a 250W PSU with missing protection circuits and very high electrical noise. Good reason not to use those for overclocking, or even for anything. --- Ed Light

new benchmark: core-2-core transfer-speed by Elcaro Nosille[_2_]

My dad is using my old CPU, which is a single-core 3500+. He likes having numerous anti-spyware, anti-virus and other utilities running, despite my repeated warnings about them slowing the machine up. My question, therefore, is will the dual-core 3600+ X2 2GHz processor show an improvement over...

Looking for a small Mid Tower with removable drive cage? by Bill Stock
Is anyone aware of a small mid tower (16"-17") with a removable 3.5" drive cage? I'd like something that's easy to work on in a confined space. The CoolerMaster 330 looks interesting, but the drive cage does not seem to come out. Cheap (low price) would also be good. TIA
