MIKE FROM Rbmods has been listening in with the new Everglide S500 Headphones, an oversized but comfortable set of headphones designed for gamers. What caught our eye was the completely separate clip-on mike, which he feels is something of an afterthought, and it means you can use these with your MP3 player as well and actually wear them in public.

Tweaknews has managed to find a case big enough to test out Zalman's shiny new heatpipe CNPS9700 LED Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler and the prognosis is that highly positive, not only is it very good at keeping your processor cool under the most demanding situations, but it looks pretty to boot.

In this age of massive cases, necessary to contain all the stuff we find in today's PCs and, more importantly, the things that keep them cool, it's refreshing to see Thermaltake take on the challenge of a slim case. Hardcoreware let us know if Thermaltake has triumphed with their review of the Thermaltake Mozart Sx Slim HTPC Case.

Asus has a good reputation for making solid motherboards and, according to our friends over at xbitlabs, the new ASUS P5W64 WS Professional is precisely that, professional. With four PCI Express X16 slots there is a potential to connect eight monitors, clearly aiming the board over most heads.

Techgage has been bopping along to the tunes from the new 2.1 speaker system, the Altec Lansing FX4021. According to the blurb, this is a 2.1 system that promises high-end sound in a compact and stylish package. And, with a score of 8/10, it looks like Techgage agrees.

Team is relatively unknown name in high-end memory circles but it looks like tt's making great strides to get itself recognised, as EclipseOC have a go with its new Xtreem DDR2-800 2x1gb Kit andit comes out with the Editor's Choice.

iRiver has released its latest portable music player, the iRiver T10 MP3 Player and, with the promise of a new golf disc, TheTechLounge has had a go reviewing it. It's solid playback and sturdy design may appeal enough to some to overcome being slightly overpriced compared to other players offering similar specs. µ
