History Of The Tom's Hardware Video
The new THG video number 8 demonstrates the assembly of a PC compressor cooler.
The first THG video, which caused a great deal of controversy in the industry, showed the overheating problems with the AMD Athlon XP/ MP processor. The second was a brief guide for disabling the multiplier lock on the AthlonXP/ MP. The third video showed how to install an effective water-cooling system in a PC case. Here we selected the kind of high quality components that promised to provide a solid, long-term investment. Production number 4 contains highlights of the Intel IDF 2002, and number 5 deals with P4 Hyper-Threading. Here, we compare a 3.6 GHz P4 (without HT) and a 3.06 GHz P4 with HT. In our sixth video we show what's possible with a 4.1 GHz system. This was one of the fastest PCs in the world at the time. Video 7 contains highlights of IDF 2003. The latest video (number 8) deals with the assembly and construction of a highly overclocked, yet stable, compressor-cooled PC system.
