Today's post is a little smaller than yesterdays - I promise! :)

VIAHardware are hosting a beta copy of the new Via 4.31 4-in-1 drivers, which includes the fix for the 686B bug. Be aware that they're not offically released, though VIAHardware does list them as final. Thanks for VooDoo for pointing this one out to us.

Andypoo wrote in to let us know that the Pioneer DVD-R*2, DVD-RW, CD-R, CD-RW drive is actually listed on Pioneer Australia's website, and has actually been there for some time apparently. Estimated price is around AUD$1925 or so, though you may find cheaper if you shop around.

ClubOC are giving away an Iwill KK266 motherboard. And you don't have to join their forums, or post in their forums to enter! Just fill out a form, answer a simple question (based on information from one of their sponsors) and you're in with a chance!

Electic Tech are reporting that someone leaked the password to the Windows XP beta download site.

WildAndyC have updated their Mini Copper Orb Fan Assisted Waterblock article.

BSOD have checked out the Icemat mousing surface.

PCStats have reviewed 256MB Apacer PC-100 RAM. PC-100 you say? Why PC-100? Well, they found that the Apacer PC-100 was using the same DRAM as Mushkin Rev.3 PC-150 uses...
