TECHGAGE reviews the CyrstalFontz CFA-635.  It does everything you would expect a fan controller to do, but it can also display a lot more.  Check it out.

"With the dearth of fan controllers and temperature monitors on the market today it's not very

AnandTech has a very early preview of socket AM2.  Right now the big thing holding it back from the market is a lack of chipset and BIOS support, though the chip itself is somewhat immature as well.  This, the second preview, shows some improvements over the first, but is it enough to displace s939?
