Techbits are a brain child of Greg Hess, who initially started them on the Discreet Forum, then moved them here to a permanent home; they are gathered, (chewed up) and processed by Greg Hess and Thomas Bruno, an all around good guys, hardware experts and 3DLuVr staff/contributing authors.

Review of the Vantec FCE-6254OD. The best Socket A/PPGA/Socket 370 Cooler I have ever seen for 1) ease of installation 2) performance and 3) cost.

A look at commercial fan adapters. What do they do you ask? They allow you to reduce the noise in your case by using a large fan with a lower decible output on that expensive heatsink you just purchased.

Seems both intel and amd are having alot of trouble getting their latest cpu's to the oem market. Shortages of both the 1.333 Ghz Tbird and 1.7 Ghz P4 are rampant. The reasons for the shortages differ however. Intel's is caused by a delay in the production of the chip, while Amd's reason is that they can't make the chips fast enough to fulfill the demand.

Also in the AMD and Intel news, is their agreement to share patent technology. I hope this doesn't mean some sort of price fixing later...

Creative Labs decides to not leave the graphics card business. First they want to leave, then they want to come back. Its all a bit sketchy to me.

A nice socket cooler roundup. Remember cooling is just as important for stable workstations, as it is for overclocked gaming rigs.

Review of the upcoming Microsoft OS, Windows XP. Here's a quote from the article.

"Along with these enhancements, Windows XP ships with tons of enhancements that leave you lurking about trying to figure out how to turn them off. Shadows, animated windows, text enhancement .."

How to build a computer...with pictures!

Kyle really pimps it out this week. He takes a look at a stock 1.7 Ghz P4 vs a 1.333 Tbird, and then a 2.1 Ghz P4 vs a 1.53 Ghz Tbird. Man those tbirds are fast. Here's a quote from the article.

"We speak to hundreds of computer users every week here at the [H] and I can count the ones that I am aware of building a Pentium4 system on one hand. The platform is simply not being accepted outside the OEM market"
