  • Brace yourselves, folks. The turn of the millennium is upon us. Banks will shut down, electrical grids will overload, and the world will end.

    Wait, that was last year.

    While this January 1st will mark the first year of the second millennium, we don't expect nearly as much excitement as "Y2K" generated. Sure - your New Years party won't be the wild mess it was last year, but look on the bright side; you'll get to play those crummy games you received for Christmas under the influence of champagne. Just remember, please don't drink and drive.

    If your New Year's Eve party will consist of you and…well, you, then feel free to drop by SharkyForums.com, where the party never ends. That's right, like Studio 54, we rock day and night. Have a prosperous 2001, everyone!

    Each week we take several of the most popular/insightful/controversial threads and present them to you for easy digestion. Feel free to add your own thoughts (subtract the profanity, please) and help us multiply the reader participation here at Sharky Extreme (and you thought math was tough…). We've added links on each spotlight page so you can easily add your own comments and contribute to the debate! If your repartee strikes us as useful, humorous, or otherwise entertaining, it stands the distinct possibility of being featured next week. Without further ado...

    Difference In ATX and WTX?
    A little rusty on your case and power supply specifications? Don't know the difference between AT, ATX or WTX? Let a few of more "informed" forum members explain for you.

    Peltier Coolers
    Peltier coolers are great fun - and great for coaxing stubborn processors to overclock higher than they have ever run. If you dig extreme overclocking, make sure to join this discussion of enthusiastic overclockers. I would like to hear a few successful overclocking stories!

    Will Intel Ever Get It Right?
    Unfortunately, another bug has been uncovered with the Pentium 4 that could affect a secondary video card or even sound card in a non bus-mastering PCI slot. Read this thread for more information. If you're a P4 owner and have experienced this problem, we'd like to hear about it!

    ASUS Is The Stability King?
    It seems as though we have a few disgruntled ASUS customers in the forum who disagree with our praise of ASUS products. While we have never had stability issues with ASUS motherboards, we would like to hear from you that have, and under what conditions.

    Saddam Hussein Wants Your PS2!
    Rumor has it that Iraq is amassing Playstation2's for some military-centered purpose. Good think I got mine before Saddam could get his hands on it! Anyone think there is truth to this? I think it is somewhat hilarious that "the PS2 is more than 1,000 times faster than PC video cards."

    Transistors Are Getting Kinda Old
    Many ideas have been proposed to get around the quantum limitations imposed by the electrical transistor, so when will we see devices based on more futuristic ideas (i.e. strings of atoms, as Arcadian suggests)? What will take the place of the integrated transistor we are used to?
