    Can I skip the 'pencil trick' and just FSB-OC?
    We have had a significant amount of luck unlocking AMD processors with the aforementioned 'pencil trick.' However, the latest batch of KT133A motherboards has been reported to be very stable at front side bus speeds up to 150MHz. So, the question is, which overclocking method to choose?

    Is the P4 worth it now?
    Intel's Pentium 4 has dropped significantly in price, but does that mean it is worth the price? The general consensus in the forums is to wait until Northwood makes its way onto the scene, with its Socket 478.

    AMD's SOI process...
    AMD has recently patented an implementation of Silicon On Insulator that they believe will help alleviate the power and heat issues of current generation processors. Have any additional information on this new process or care to discuss it? Here's your thread!

    ATI's new chip to beat the GeForce3?
    ATI's President and COO has already come forward to claim that their next generation graphics processor will be faster and better equipped than NVIDIA's recently announced GeForce3 GPU. We don't yet have any information regarding ATI's next release, but the rumor mill is saying, this year.

    Poll: What's your sound setup?
    More often than not, audio setups do not receive the attention they deserve. If you're cranking out the watts and driving the neighbors mad, let us know what equipment you're using. This is your chance to brag!

    DVD a big improvement?
    Those who have yet to partake in DVD video are truly missing out! If you are one of the unfortunate few, read this thread, run to a friends house with your favorite DVD, and enjoy clearer video and the wonders of Dolby Digital sound!
