Thursday morning (0 Comments) (link)

Another day, another news post. Things seem a *bit* busier this morning than they have been for the last few days, but not overly so...

Casper wrote in to tell us that Microsoft have officially (as in it's linked from their front page, or you can go here) released Service Pack 2 for Windows 2000.

Adrian's Rojak Pot have once again updated their BIOS Optimisation Guide.

Digit-Life are reporting that ATI have demonstrated the Nintendo Gamecube graphics technology in the Nintendo booth at E3 this year.

Electic Tech are reporting that Compaq will be the first to offer Athlon4 based Notebook computers, running at speeds of up to 1GHz. They are also carrying a story about Crucial Technologies offering PC2100 DDR-RAM at the same price as their PC133 SDRAM.

Icrontic have an article on Case Temperature Research, basically meaning that they've spent some time working out the best fan configuration in a computer case, testing against commonly held ideas about where fans should be placed in a case, and which direction they should blow...

Modding Zone are running a story about a girl/woman spraypainting her system to look like a cow - a Gateway-esque cow at that. The end result does look quite good though (if you're into black-and-white randomly-spotted computer cases).

OCWorkBench are reporting that Chaintech appear to be the first motherboard manufacturer to be adopting the SiS735 DDR chipset. They are releasing the 7SID motherboard. Incidently, if you check out the OCWorkBench site, you'll see that they discovered something interesting on their SiS735 reference board - a couple of mosfets attached underneath the motherboard.
