    ATI wants you to overclock. Really, it's OK

    This is officially the first time ATI has openly sanctioned overclocking any current generation board. However... ATI claims thermal damage is strictly not covered by RMA and that blown internal fuses in the GPU will notify RMA teams if the GPU has been stressed too hard. Expect more...

    Dual 12V rails causing Crossfire (and SLI?) problems

    I thought dual-rails were preferable for stability. :( Seems there is more confirmation that a single powerful 12V rail helps in some Crossfire and possibly GTX 512 SLI problems. Powerstream anyone? Inquirer

    ATI releasing HDCP / HDMI video card

    We're not sure if this should be seen as ATI mending their dodgy ways, or as them cashing in on the suddenly discovered lack of HDCP-compliant cards, but it looks like ATI has a HDMI-HDCP card on the way. engadget

    More HDCP back-pedalling from ATI

    Thermaltake ToughPower 550: Where and when?

    Does anyone have any information on this PSU? Here's a post from the Thermaltake rep way back in Sept: There are a lot of reviews but I'm not sure they are trustworthy or thorough enough. Thermatake's last reviewed PSU, TWV500, seemed to do very well in contrast to their earlier attempts...

    Confused about dual channel

    Isn't all memory dual channel? I mean isn't it really a function of the memory controller and not the RAM? I see memory sold as 'dual channel'. Does this just mean that it's a two DIMM kit that has been tested to ensure that it works in dual channel? Has anyone had any problems running in...

    3700 Sandy OR 3800 X2 Man?

    Ultra X-finity ver. 2 OR Sunbean Nuuo?

    I'm looking for an inexpensive SLI PSU with either modular or sleeved cables. Good reviews on the Sunbean but not many on the new X-finity. X-finity has those ribbon-like cables which are not sleeved but are tidy looking. Also, if Ultra, then which one? 500 or 600. They are substantially...

    Trusted Reviews and the Hiper Type-R 580

    This PSU seems to get a lot of good reviews. But Trusted reviews had a problem with it: The +12V connector is removable and this is where things are starting to look slightly odd. On a normal PSU the +12V connector is wired up with two 12V and two ground wires. On the Type R, the connector...

    PSU for AMD AM2 Socket???
