HardwarewNewsNet originally launched back in December of 1999. After starting HwGN in February of 2001, I rarely updated HardwareNewsNet and I let the site slowly die out. I'm putting HardwareNewsNet back online, restoring its old articles, and will be eventually adding a few new ones.

PIII Overclocking Problems, Solutions, & Results
This article contains the results from overclocking 4 PIII 500Es and 2 PIII 550Es with 2 Celeron 300As thrown in the middle of it all. One of the PIII 500E CPUs discussed in this article was tested here at Hardware News Net. The others are the overclocking results of CPUs that some of our readers sent in to us in response to our "Overclocking 4 PIII 500Es" article. We discuss the problems that the users had in overclocking their systems and what they did to try and solve the problems. Thanks to everybody that has responded to the original article and shared their results.

Overclocking and Upgrading For More Quake III fps
This guide will cover overclocking for the faint of heart (no ripping off heat sinks or replacing stock heat sink/fan combos) and upgrades that anyone who is not afraid to take the cover off of his or her PC case can perform. The guide will help you judge which upgrades and overclocks give you the most bang for the buck. The benchmarks in this guide are all Quake III (hence the title), but you should be able to use them to help you judge where upgrades and overclocking help in getting for you faster 3D gaming performance.

Creative Labs Annihilator Pro
The Annihilator Pro comes with 32MB of double data rate (DDR) memory which runs at an effective rate of 300Mhz. The DDR memory is actuall running at 150Mhz, but is transferring data both on the rise and fall of the memory clock to effectively give it a 300Mhz clock rate. It will work in a 2X or 4X AGP slot and according to the box it came in, it fully supports AGP 4X fast writes.

Overclocking 4 PIII 500Es
Are you looking at possibly buying a Pentium III 500E with your sites set on overclocking it? Want an idea as to how far the CPU that you buy might overclock? Will it overclock or even run on an older motherboard like the ABIT BH6 revision 1.02 motherboard? Our experiences with three retail PIII 500E CPUs may help you answer some of your questions.

Cooling the PIII 500E
Another user has sent in his information about his success with overclocking a PIII 500E, but this time the emphasis is on cooling the CPU. Darren has put together a heatsink/fan combo that has allowed him to reduce his CPU temperature by 10.5 degrees C. This is an inexpensive modification and is detailed below.

Asus Atlas 55GA PSU at VIPERLAIR
Viperlair has posted a review on the ASUS Atlas 55GA power supply. "Along with clean power delivery there has come to market the need (or desire) to have your PSU play a part in the overall scheme of the system design. To have it play a part in the cosmetics as it where. The other popular trend is modularization of the cables that supply power to all of the ancillary devices inside the case.

To this end, I present to you the Asus Atlas 55GA. The Atlas brings 2 of the 3 above segments to bear, giving the end user a choice that should meet most if not all of their needs and wants in a PSU. Lets go over the specifications for the Atlas 55GA."

CaseGears Acrylic X-Plug Modular 450 Watt Power Supply at LAN Addict
LAN Addict has posted a review of the CaseGears X-Plug Modular 450 watt power supply. From the review: "All of the cables packaged with the power supply are modular, with the exception of the 20+4 pin motherboard connection. Every cable is carefully sleeved in a blue braid, which happens to be uv reactive as well, also matching the blue led fans and uv reactive acrylic casing of the power supply. For those with newer systems, I will note that there is no PCI-Express connector or convertor included with the power supply, so you will have to use the one included with your video card."
