The MSI P6N SLI Platinum and Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI are very similar boards, with dissimilar prices. The MSI based on the 680i SLI and the Abit on the 650i SLI.

CoolTechZone has a look at LogiTech's new Wii inspired Cordless mouse. It is unlikely that gamers will adopt it as a replacement, and besides they have the actual Wii to game with.

XIGMATEK is a company that has some interesting ideas, but hasn't really caught on with enthusiasts. X-bit Labs is going to try to undo that by reviewing their HDT-S963, a cooler with Heatpipe Direct Touch. They find that it is efficient enough to compete with the major brands, especially at lower fan speeds. At higher speeds the fan noise becomes a problem, but that could easily be rectified by replacing the stock fan with a quieter model.

The Seasonic 500W S12II PSU may sound a little underpowered, until you look at some of the stats, like the fact that 408W is available to the two 12V rails at 34A. [H]ard|OCP put it on their torture bench, and was quite impressed at this PSUs ability to live up to all the claims Seasonic made. It even went through a whole hour of the 100% power tests and stayed at 45C.
