In this test, four fast CD burners from 24x to 12x show just how quickly CDs can be duplicated. We also look at burning software in more detail, including features for copy-protected media.
BIOS tuning allows users to squeeze out as much power as possible from virtually all motherboards. We show the details that really count.
Dual boards really shine when used with high-end applications such as Cinema 4D XL or 3D Studio Max. We put reasonably priced boards with price tags starting at $110 through their paces.
The Taiwanese manufacturer SiS has suddenly been thrust into the limelight: Athlon/Duron boards with the SiS 735 chipset manage to push its strong competitors AMD & Co. back in the rankings.
Extreme cooling for overclockers - using a liquid cooling system allows any CPU to be optimally overclocked. We show you how to build an inexpensive water cooler, step by step.
The most extensive comparative test of all time pits the new generation of CPU coolers against the older competition. Complex designs and precious materials set the coolers apart from the pack.
The Magik 1 is ALi's bid in the DDR-enabled chipset race with AMD 760 and VIA KT266. The four boards we tested produced rather sobering results!
The VIA Apollo Pro 266 provides a powerful argument for buying the semi-obsolete Pentium III platform - it works with DDR-SDRAM. We put a total of 10 boards to the test.
Creating CD-ROM copies of your DVDs just got a lot easier to handle - we've tested the new FlasK MPEG and Divx versions. All AMD and Intel CPUs are supported now!
The successor of the i820/Camino and the i840/Carmel chipset is i850/Tehama. We tested six boards for the Pentium 4.
In the second round of cooler reviews, two particularly powerful models appear on the scene: The Silverado and the new Swiftech both put the pressure on the competition!
Stop - don't dump your old PC! The performance of computers up to 6 years old can be significantly increased by means of a selective upgrade. Here we upgrade a Socket 5 system from 1995.
The Studio DV Plus is a low-priced video editing card with a digital fire-wire interface. We raised the question: what use is the card when used in conjunction with DV cameras?
Extreme overclocking often fails due to insufficient CPU cooling. We have tested 17 different coolers and tell you which models are most suitable for overclocking.
MPEG-4 - the space-saving video format - is the current trend. A growing number of users are converting their video material to MPEG-4. We've tested the most important processors from AMD and Intel.
