I have tried PC Modding before but never really succeeded in doing so for a couple of reasons. One is I am too lazy to create something that is artistic, and the other reason is I am not that artistic. And besides, cool CPU designs are available at my favorite PC store anyway so I’ll just go ahead and buy one if I want to change my PC’s look.
Anyway, here are some of the coolest CPU designs that I found over at www.technoscrap.com. Feast your eyes over the coolest and weirdest designs:
It may seem a dream at first to have a whopping 1 Terabyte of disk storage for all your digital movie, picture and music files. And now the dream is over as Seagate, world’s top manufacturer of digital storage media, made available to consumers 1TB hard disk drive (HDD) at 72000rpm motor speed.
The HDD is made up of four platters and eight heads, making it 180GB worth of storage per square inch, industry’s highest when it comes areal density. But power consumption and noise level are still at par with the current drive models using 13w of power and 2.8bels in idle mode and 3.7bels in seek modes. The speed is also the same with the 1TB model since it uses 7200 revolutions per minute in its spin. The drive can cache 32MB of data and seek time averages at 8.5ms.
Current prices range from $180to $250 for SATA based on amazon.com prices.
DataPipe has announced that there will be a scheduled downtime for affected servers because of a physical migration. Unfortunately this included our colocated server and because of miscommunication, and we had little time to prepare for this event. The migration took place last Friday, March 14th between 12:00AM to 8:00AM EST.Â Although DataPipe provided an 8-hour window for the downtime, they anticipated that the servers will be back to normal in less than 8 hours. However, in my experience, the usual 8-hour window normally takes longer than the announced downtime because of “unexpected events”.

These days, $1000 lands you a pretty well rounded budget laptop. You can easily get 2GB of memory, 120GB or more of hard disk space, 802.11b/g wireless networking, and dedicated multimedia shortcut keys that let you watch DVDs or view documents without booting into Windows. The Acer and Dell laptops in our list even sported HDMI connections, extras we didn’t expect at this price point. Read more here.
