This is my second look at a Coolermaster enclosure, the first being my review of the ATCS-710-GX1 case. The 710 was heralded as a budget case by Coolermaster standards, whilst this magnificent looking beast certainly was not. At time of release this was a £200+ effort; now you can pick one [...]
Coolermaster were possibly the pioneers of the whole “stylish computing” genre. It might be hard to believe for some of you but, back in “the old days”, we used to use coffee and/or cigarette smoke stained beige desktop cases with 14″ monitors perched on top, flanked by clunky keyboards and mice with 2 buttons and [...]
First off a big thanks to David Brown, the manufacturer of these kits, for arranging the sample and to Graeme from KustomPCs for his help in getting it to me.
So what the hell is a lapping kit? In fact, what the hell does lapping mean? Are we going to a nudey bar?
This is the first time I’ve written a review of a power supply, but I’ve read plenty and I have a vague notion of what these magic boxes do, so here goes.
I bought this Super Flower power supply after my best efforts at modding my old Enermax 350 ended in tragedy. No-one lost any [...]

Note: A couple of images in this review are corrupt. My apologies. They have not survived the test of time. ”Digital files last forever”, my rear-end they do!
The Silver Mountain 2 is, of course, the successor to the original Silver Mountain, the subject of techangel’s first ever review back in [...]
I’ve always been a fan of arcade games. It started off with space invaders, moved onto Galaga and pretty much went downhill from there. When my parents first looked at buying a computer I was only about 8 years old but I could still see the possibilities of playing space invaders at [...]
Before I begin, I’d like to thank George from H2O Computer for his assistance in supplying the kit and providing information and assistance. This kit is available for purchase to European customers from the H2O Computer website.
To start this review, a massive thanks to VIA for providing us with the sample product. They were even kind enough to supply a motherboard made by Biostar and asked me to point out that C3 compatible boards are available in Europe from both Biostar and Jetway.
