More NV30 hints on TheInq. Still expecting to see it on the 18th (that'd be Monday, today) but that's "the 18th everywhere except Australia", so it'll be 2pm or later by the time we see the reviews, assuming a midnight NDA as usual. DarkVision have a video from NVIDIA, more of the "Are You Ready?" teaser stuff.
TheInq say we're to expect Granite Bay and 533MHz-FSB Xeons today too, thanks Kafka.

From Domin8r: Just thought you and others might like to see this new mirror perspex that you can buy and ive put in the rear of my case :), also direct from Japan a 660,000 mcd LED that's brighter than a spotlight and from one wall to another in full daylight you can see it on the opposire wall still very brightly :) and no 660,000mcd is not a typo :), needs its own hs to keep it cool and the led runs @ 1 watt. I have a pic of it in my pcdb if anyone wants to see it and the mirror perspex :)
