[H]ardNews 10th Edition

Retail H20 Kit Mod:

Not satisfied with the retail H20 kit you bought? Do what everyone else does, break it open and mod the hell out of it. You might be able to get a few ideas from 3DXtreme’s mod of the Evercool WC-201.

This was really just a project for me to do something with the WC-201 to see if it would perform better, I think it proved to be worth the effort. I have to remind everyone that this unit is not meant to be hardcore watercooling and even with some modding it is still not going to break records.

Albatron FX5500Q:

Not all midrange graphics cards are created equal. The crew at OC-Zone have reviewed the Albatron FX5500Q and found it somewhat lacking. Grab a translator if you want to read the review, graphs and pictures are universal though.

I think this card can be good upgrade for who has old cards like as TNT2 and GF2 MX, but the performance of this card leaves to be desire at some times even scoring behind a GF4 MX440. It run decently any game does not use shaders and still it is capable to run applications with PS1.1 (DX8), but really fails using PS2.0 (DX9) at a aceptable level.
