After spending a rather refreshing day with the boys from Legion Hardware (fellow Australian site), it's time for me to post some Web News again along with Darrell aka "Wiggo" - Just like the old days right... Go easy on me; it's been a while since my last post!
Raaj Menon from PC Range, an Australian distributor, emailed me letting me know they become the official distributors of IOSS products - Hallelujah! IOSS are the makers of the BIOS Saviors, popular PC Geiger Overclocking Kit and the RD3 Gladiator ATA/100/133 Rounded cables. Some may remember the PC Geiger from a review at VIA Hardware... We are keen to get some of this gear in for testing guys!
Steve and the crew from Legion Hardware have been busy, not just visiting my shack. Today they've knocked out reviews of a Global Win server case and an article comparing the ABIT KR7A-RAID (KT266A) and MSI K7N420 Pro (nForce). You can always count on these guys for a good solid review.
In case you've been living under a rock for the past 48 hours, you'd know by now that the folks at Madonion have released their Special Edition version of 3DMark2001 - The gamers benchmark program of choice. Go grab yourself a copy!
Overclockers Australia has banged out a surprise new design from the long lasting "black" design - As many sites are opting to do, they've moved to the PHP / MySQL combination. It's a big change I'll give them that. When I first loaded it up I thought the site had been hacked. I guess I'll just have to start getting used to it. While you're there, check out this Quantispeed Calculator program - It's designed to convert the speed rating of Athlon XP's to a true MHz reading - Quite the program to have in one's tool box.
Sadly, another one has bitten the dust. I was reading over at Icrontic as you do and discovered Electic.com has closed down. It's a shame, that site was defiantly a good for sourcing all the latest I.T. news.
