    Our second day of Cebit coverage includes the companies GeCube, Sparkle, Sirtec, AOpen, Zalman and ABIT. Among the highlights are dual-GPU X1600 from GeCube, quad-12V rail PSUs from Sirtec and overclocking with Crotale at ABIT's booth.

    Uuh, CNPS9700 will be mine!! MINE!!!

    The memory module stoler was sure heck of an expert :roll:

    BTW, nordic overclockers have seemed to be pretty popular among manufacturers lately... ATI had Sampsa and macci, and now ABIT took Crotale. Forget the americans :toast:

    |EDIT| And it's great to hear about Zalman's new chipset cooler, 'cause current ZM-NB47J's mounting mechanism just sucks - it's maybe the worst of all time.

    How valid was this overclock though? And yes, shame on that man who stole that memory!

    The mobo folks seem to be quite confused on PCIe and PCI socket choice these days. Almost all mobos have dropped a number of usable PCI slots for PCIe X1 slots.

    This is foolish when there are no PCIe cards to install in these X1 slots. A mobo with only (1) usable PCI slot is worthless to 99.99% of consumers. A mobo with only (2) usable PCI slots is borderline at best and probably can only meet the needs of 60% of potential purchasers. Few if any people need a single PCIe X1 slot mobo, let alone (2) PCIe X1 slots on a mobo, at this point in time. As a result the mobo companies are limiting sales and losing customers from poor designs that many people can't use even if they wanted to.

    Other people in mobo forums all over the Net have alerted mobo makers to their inappropriate mobo designs yet these companies seem to not care. They will care however as profits continue to drop because people can't buy or use these poor designs.

    Actually I think macci was first who got signed, AFAIK Sampsa is running his own finnish review site and is mostly "guest" on ATI's overclocking events.

    I don't know when Mushkin hired you, but I think macci was adopted in november-december. And yeah, Sampsa is presenting the press in ATI's events (and in others of course).

    We ran SuperPi 1M at the speed shown there (6216MHz).

    Yes, someone got some nice Micron D9 chips :mad:
