Gigabyte's brilliant micro-ATX P55M-UD2 offers a bag-full of features and overclocking potential for its modest £85 asking price. Read on to see why this is one of the best motherboards ever made.
In an extension of our recent investigation into energy efficiency, Kingston dropped in some of its latest LoVo DDR3 memory that can run at just 1.2-1.25V. How much power does it save and is it a significant difference? We check to find out.
Intel has finally released a CPU worthy of its premium Extreme Edition brand - the first six-core desktop processor. Previously known as Gulftown, the Core i7-980X Extreme Edition is not only brutally fast out of the box but also a fantastic overclocker thanks to its 32nm transistors.
The original Core i7-920 is the best selling high-end CPU, but as it's now nearing its 18-month birthday Intel has decided it's due for retirement. We check out its replacement, the i7-930. Clocked at 2.8GHz, it's only 133MHz faster than the i7-920 - but thanks to overclocking, it's still the chip to buy.
They might take our lives, but they will never take our Freedom Tower! Well, we'd rather they didn't take either, truth be told - we're rather fond of our lives, and also of this excellent and well priced cooler. Read on to see why (and we promise no more Braveheart references).

A £40 graphics card? Surely that's as useful as a chocolate teapot? We take a look at AMD's latest and cheapest Radeon from the HD 5000 series, the HD5450, see how it stacks up against integrated graphics and find out in what situations it might be a great buy.
Intel's latest 32nm processors, codenamed Clarkdale, are the first to integrate a GPU. We take the new budget-sensitive Core i3-530 and Core i5-661 for a spin to see how they compare to previous CPUs - will a Core 2 Quad Q6600 still cut it, and has AMD got anything to fight back with? Read on to find out...
Thermaltake has expanded its range of gaming cases with the Element V: a towering steel chassis with support for E-ATX hardware and then some. With adjustable fan speeds and multi-colour LED lighting too, does the Element V have what it takes to be your next upgrade?
Got a CPU cooler with a small fan? Is it noisy? If so, read our group test of 80mm and 92mm fans to see which is the best to mod onto your cooler. Or maybe you've got some small case fan mounts that could do with filling? Read on to see what with!
We've collected six supersized case fans (180mm to 225mm) to see which is best for that all-important side panel fan. Read on to see how Akasa, Antec and others fared in our rigorous airflow and noise testing!
We've collected 22 120mm fans and put them through rigorous noise and airflow tests to see which is the best. Read on to see how to keep your hardware cool while keeping the noise your PC makes to a minimum.
Because of its vastly different architecture, how does Lynnfield compare to its Core i7 and Core 2 Quad brothers when it comes to PCI-Express performance and gaming? We setup a scientific test and got our game on, to find out.
In conjunction with AMD's new 785G chipset, the elaborately named Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H is setup for AM3 and DDR3 support, as well as the latest integrated graphics with nifty home theatre features to boot. Is it worth the upgrade from 780G and how does it compare to a discrete HD 4350?
Corsair has achieved the holy grail and made a low cost liquid cooler, the Hydro H50, that actually does what it should: it provides very good cooling for your CPU, it doesn't sound like a hurricane and isn't ridiculously expensive. Does this spell the end of air cooling as we know it?
With a refined design to that will please most enthusiasts, Gigabyte's GA-MA790FXT-UD5P socket AM3 motherboard is on the test bench. We find out whether this Gigabyte motherboard's new found beauty is more than just skin deep.

Intel's new Core i7 processors have some massive memory bandwidth potential, but what betters performance - high clock or low latency? Also, do you need expensive triple channel memory or will dual or even single channel DDR3 do? Read on to find out.
With everything else tested, we put our math cap on and cracked out the calculators to work out which platform is the best punt for your pound. Does the supreme Core i7 performance warrant the extra cost it demands? Read on to find out!
