Thermaltake did a great job with the Spedo case, with plenty of drive expansion, an ATC and CRM to handle the thermals of the case and the cable management, packaged in a full-tower ATX case that fits the needs of the hardcore enthusiast. There is plenty of room inside the case to install the largest video cards on the market. Where the case falls short is in the lack of Firewire and the lack of a removable motherboard tray which are common items in today's high-end systems. This article can be found in our Reviews Vault.

The ASUS ENGTX260/HTDP/896M/A video card is an interesting mix of the latest NVIDIA technology (in the form of 216 cores, 55nm version available, PhysX) and a reasonable price (239.99 after MIR as of this writing). Performance wise the card has the horsepower to outshine the ATI Radeon HD 4870 video cards in every benchmark that matters and ASUS cards come with a load of extras including a Multi-Language User Manual on CD and CD Wallet.

I went into this review with a few bad experiences with ASRock boards in the past but an open mind as to this board. As they are not as big as other motherboard manufacturers in the enthusiast end of the motherboard market, it was an interesting experience. This board in a word excites me to no end. The ability to have four video cards without SATA or capacitors or other components in the way is a huge plus for me.This article can be found in our Reviews Vault.

Thecus spent a lot of time making the N4100PRO easy to set up and use for even the most novice of users. The need for a NAS server for the Home business or even for the family that wants to share a lot of files between themselves or Music has never been more apparent than in today's media based American culture. Thecus's N4100PRO is available online for a modest $420, making it the same cost as a Netbook laptop computer.This article can be found in our Reviews Vault. Click here to read the full article.

In terms of GeForce GTX 285, the card is quite obviously a speed bump of the GeForce GTX280. For those expecting miracles on the second revision of the GTX280 this card offers higher performance, more processing power and a lower power draw meaning that it is successful for what it does. This card carries a price of $399.99 online which places it in the same category as the ATI HD 4870 X2 which it outperforms across the board in most cases. The GTX285 is the fastest single chip video card on the market today. XFX includes a great bundle in the form of the hit game from last year Far Cry 2 and... more.

Thermaltake took a lot time designing this case and it shows. The ability to install 7 HDDs is worth the tradeoff that it requires from the 5.25” drive bays that would be found on other cases. A mid-Tower ATX case with a 230mm fan on top, two 60mm fans on the video card area and excellent airflow makes this case a good mid-range case for those that want plenty of airflow around their system and need six or seven HDDs in their system.

It's rather hard to make a judgment on a product that is a 1 out of 500 in the world item. How can you put a price on an item that is only available to a select few people? The nice thing about this case is it is a complete package with a CPU cooler and a Power Supply included for good measure. Some would balk at the price of $600 for a case, but this case takes workmanship to the next level.This article can be found in our Reviews Vault. Click here to read the full article.

ASUS has done a superlative job with the P6T6 WS Revolution motherboard. This board scored among the highest of any X58 motherboards in terms of features and performance nearly across the board. ASUS bills this motherboard as the ultimate workstation board and that may truly be the case. To facilitate this, the board has six PCI Express x16 graphics slots, allowing for a six video card solution, SAS drives, WS LED, and WS Heartbeat.This article can be found in our Reviews Vault.

In terms of cable management and airflow the Tagan A+ Seenium BW case really can't be beat in this price range. Seldom do you see a Mid-Tower case with eight fan grills on it, much less for the price this case is targeted at. Another great feature is the toolless installation of drives and add-on cards once the motherboard is in place. The weakness of this case is the fact that there are only two included 120mm fans. While this is understandable in the face of the price and the case offers plenty of options for those that want more, it would have been nice to have fans included with the case... more.

The positives of this card include an excellent cooling solution that doesn’t quit and keeps the card running cool. Under load temperatures of 44C maximum at default clock speeds is just amazing. The card overclocked successfully to near the maximum allowed by the Overdrive utility or the ASUS iTracker utility. The card is very popular among enthusiasts as it offers high performance at a reasonable price.This article can be found in our Reviews Vault. Click here to read the full article.
