A-Top Technology XPlode ATX Case Review @ LAN Addict
LAN Addict :: Tuesday, April 19, 2005

For less than $60, you can get a case that comes with more items included than a lot of $80 cases. The XPlode may not have all the lates features, but what it lacks in features it more than makes up for in value! From the pre-installed LED case fans to the 10\” UV cold cathode to the windowed power supply with UV-reactive fluorescent wiring to the mesh windowing, A-Top\’s XPlode is an attention getter from the word, \”Go\”!

HEXUS.gaming – The Eidos take over saga
Hexus :: Friday, April 08, 2005
Snip: For anyone who might read the more high-brow broadsheet newspapers, there’s been an interesting wrangle going on that concerns us gamers. Eidos, that UK publishing house that brought us Lara Croft’s undisputed assets to delight our joysticks as well as big games such as the Thief series, Championship Manager and the soon to be released Lego: Star Wars, have been in a take over battle for the last two weeks following their announcement earlier this year of an operating loss of £29.2 million up to the end of 2004.

HEXUS.bean – XBOX 2 Launch Date and Major CPU News
Hexus :: Tuesday, April 05, 2005
Snip: The term ‘a multicore processor architecture’ is very significantly a very clear distinction from the term ‘dual-core’… So whilst we’re eagerly awaiting the results of all of our AMD and Intel dual-core desktop processor testing, we can confirm info which we understand was probably first posted at GameSpy: “CPU: Xenon’s central processing unit (CPU) has three 3.0 GHz PowerPC cores. Each is capable of at least two instructions per cycle and has an L1 cache with 32 KB for data and 32 KB for instructions. The three cores share 1 MB of L2 cache. Alpha 2 developer kits currently have two cores instead of three.”

A-Top Technology Gladiator ATX Case Review @ LAN Addict
LAN Addict :: Tuesday, April 05, 2005

Overall, I really like A-Top’s Gladiator. The aluminum shield with the cold cathodes behind it really makes the Gladiator stand out from the crowd and the use of mesh to replace the typical plexiglas or acrylic window borders on being truly inspired. The paint job on the Gladiator is pretty good and looks like it should hold up reasonably well. Oh, and let\’s not forget the included LED case fans and UV cold cathode, along with the power supply sporting UV-reactive cables and connectors. This case will definitely get you some attention at your next LAN!
