Although many have been a bit disappointed that the latest hardware renditions that ATI released didn't take the GTX performance crown, they tend to forget that the money is in the mid to low range cards, not the top end. This is a market that is still held pretty firmly by ATI with their x1950 Pro cards. Today I have Sapphire's version of the series which has proved itself time and time again; let's see how this one fairs against new challengers from the 8600 series.
After testing their heatpaste, we managed to get our mitts on a Zaward Sylphee which has a rather original design. Instead of one fan blowing across the fins, this packs two. That coupled with a fully aluminium chassis should make for interesting testing.

Scythe have been making some of the best coolers around for a couple of years now and they have always been rather large and excessive; but very effective. Today I have with me something that is again, rather excessive and with some of the strangest box art I have ever seen; the Scythe Andy Samurai Master.
Ever heard of Zaward? Nor me, but today I have one of their heatpastes; Super Thermal Grease HSC-G. While it may sound like a cheesy musical, lets see how it performs.
After meeting up with the nice guys at Gigabyte, we were kindly shipped one of their laptop coolers. Designed to be completely silent, and easy to use, the G-Pad shows promise. Coupled with a storage bag, it should be your laptops new best friend.
Recently, we had the privilege of reviewing Lian Li’s PCB-20 case. Suffice to say, its professional looks and ease of install had us impressed. But today with have another Lian Li offering, the PC-A12; a cheaper version.
Creative own the audio market. When people say PC audio, the reply is Creative. No one has really had the balls to try and take them on in the gaming audio arena. That is, until now. Step in the Razer Barracuda AC-1, built by and for gamers.
