Guide: Open hard drive surgery
Written by Gizmo   
Sunday, 13 May 2007 21:00



What do you do when you have a dead drive with data that you really, REALLY need to recover?  Well, you can either send the drive to a data recovery outfit and spend a lot of bucks, or you can take the approach of the hardware hacker, and find another drive in your junk pile that is similar enough to swap platters.  This method can work with most hard drives.

Review: NZXT Nemesis Elite

Sunday, 25 March 2007 03:01



All computer related parts have evolved very fast during the last decade. The computer cases were not left out from this evolution. The simple beige cases that you probably still see on older systems are becoming extinct. Cases have come a long way, so nowadays there seems to be a case matching not only a group of people but individual styles as well. One portion of the case market are the gaming cases, which are supposed to be light and not too big in order to be carried easily to LAN parties for example, but also to be very good looking in order to draw attention to them. The functionality of the case is a major concern too. Today we will present you a very good looking, high quality gaming case from NZXT, the Nemesis Elite case, which is probably one of the most easily identifiable and feature-rich gaming case available currently. Let us see how much effort NZXT put on this case while designing it and building it.

Interactive AMD Athlon 64 Socket AM2 Pinmod guide

Check the tool out at OCInside:

"Finally, it was possible to find out the appropriate pins for the Socket AM2 processors and the first interactive AMD Athlon 64 Socket AM2 pinmod guide is published on

It concerns - as in the previous AMD Socket A, S754 and S939 pin mod guidances - to connect CPU pins with a small wire. Hereby e.g. the CPU voltage (Vcore) can be changed, in order to reach higher CPU overclocking results. In the first version, the interactive pinmod guide offers already an increasement of the CPU voltage up to 1.550 Volt (also on PC startup), which is awesome to overclock well cooled processor. And depending on the used motherboard it is even possible to get a Vcore up to 1.900 Volt !"

The D-Link AirPlus XtremeG DWL-G810 is a wireless ethernet bridge which can be used to network any device which has an RJ45 ethernet port. It can, for example, be hooked-up to game consoles, media set-top boxes, printers and computers.  The bridge provides a wireless link from the connected device, to any other compatible wireless device. The other device could be a broadband router, a PC or a second game console for wireless LAN gaming.

USB Pen Drive Mod
Written by Favu

A while back I got one of those freebie pen drives, you know, the ones with “brand x” or “superbrand y” stamped on? Well, as is the norm for these things they are usually cheap and my pen drive was no exception, the build quality was lousy and the capacity was a whopping 16 megabytes of pure storage. Despite this it was soon pressed into service ferrying documents to/from my college.

After a few months of this the case actually fell apart, leaving me with a bare circuit board, and some unimpressed lecturers. The solution to my portable storage woes? A CUSBPDC! (that's Custom USB Pen Drive Case for those of you not in the know)

Targus AMW14 Laser Mouse Review

Recently bought a laptop and already sick of using the the trackpad?

Rondog was, an his solution was to use a nicely designed mouse from Targus, a company focused on mobile solutions, ranging from Nootbook cases to in-car power adapters for your notebook or tablet.

A lot or people place very little emphasis on the mouse they use, however, I do not. I understand that having a good comfortable mouse is the key to comfortable computer use. A trackpad is fine if you only use the laptop once in a blue moon. For regular use though, an external mouse is a necessity and, wireless is by far the best way to go.
