Their site is here and it's on ABC 2 on Tuesdays 8:00 - 8:30pm. Shame I can't get ABC2 here, bah.

Technibble have an explanation of the physics of good airflow. Just shifting the same stale air around isnít going to help keep the components cool, in fact, itíll only heat them up.

SharkyExtreme have updated their Value Gaming System Buyer's Guide. To do this, we pay special attention to the price-performance ratio of each component, making sure to match the hardware according to their value from an overall system performance standpoint.
