Fush Zero – Part 1

“You can think of those of us who modify cases as a brand of utilitarian pop artists. We change and shape our cases into forms which express our own sense of style and individual attitudes. What we feel is cool, attractive or interesting will normally find its way onto our blank canvases. It’s no different with this project…”

Speed Strip SSA-1 review
Wednesday, February 11, 2004
“This product is a really good idea and will help anyone who is looking to overclock their CPU as much as possible. If your motherboard allows you to change the multiplier of your CPU without physically unlocking it you do not need this product. If you have a motherboard that does not allow you to change the multiplier on your CPU without it being physically unlocked you should love this thing. In the past I have spent a lot of time physically unlocking CPUs by hand which can be a real pain because the bridges are so small. With this Speed Strip I was able to take my CPU out, install it, reinstall my CPU, and change my multiplier in about 10 minutes.”

256MB Verbatim Store n Go USB 2.0 drive review
Friday, February 06, 2004
“After finishing the review on my previous USB 2.0 drive I didn’t think that the speeds would be much different between devices. I was clearly wrong because this Verbatim drive is much faster than any other USB drive that I have ever used. Not only is it extremely fast but it stores 256MB of data, and is very small. Along with being fast, small, and having a large capacity size it works with just about every operating system that you would be using.”

256MB USB 2.0 Pen Drive review

“Inside of the box you will find a driver CD, quick installation guide, USB extension cord, neck strap, and docking station. The driver CD is only necessary if you are using Windows 98, all other operating systems supported should automatically detect it and install the drivers for you. The USB extension cord is a nice feature however I have not used it yet because of the docking station included. The docking station is a great added bonus because if your case does not have any front USB then you will have to plug it in from the back each time.”
