Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
VIA's new K8T900 Chipset - VIA's new K8T900 Chipset
Tue, November 22 2005 | 9:04AM | PermaLink Feedback?

Oh my god, this has got to be one of the ugliest cases I have ever seen. Does anyone actually buy these things?!? Anyway Pro-Clockers reviews the NZXT Lexa Classic case, yeah there's nothing classic about it. Ooo, here is a very sweet HDD, ClubOC checks out the 500GB Seagate 7200.9 SATA HDD. Beyond3D checks out the Sapphire Radeon X800 GTO2 and GTO Ultimate Edition videocards.

Those of you who are familiar with previous designs from Sapphire's range of Ultimate Edition boards will find no surprises here - just like these previous efforts, the X800 GTO Ultimate Edition features a hefty (although admittedly less so than previous Ultimate Edition solutions) heat-pipe cooling arrangement which transfers heat away from the core to the heatsink on the top of the board. The obvious advantage of such a mechanism is that it requires no fans to cool the device, and as such offers silent running for anyone looking to build a silent or near-silent PC while still requiring a respectable amount of 3D gaming performance.

Hothardware takes the VIA K8T900 chipset for a spin, is it enough to win users back? If you are looking for a second opinion, Legin Hardware talks about the same chipset.

The K8T900 is one of the best chipsets VIA has produced in quite some time and as it stands, could be one of the best AMD64 chipsets available. However, there are a few aspects of the chipset that are still in the mist. First and foremost motherboard manufacturers have to support the chipset and develop motherboards that use it. They then have to get these motherboards out onto the market in reasonable quantities. However, I do not believe this will be an issue this time for VIA and they seem just as confident.
