Hardware Roundup Monday Morning Edition

This morning we have a couple of reviews around the net. [H]ardOCP kicks it off with an article about Half Life 2: Episode 2 about the performance and the full story. The Virtual-Hideout has the Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L Motherboard in the testing system, which provides a cheap entry into the Intel P35 Chipset world. Speaking of motherboards, TweakNews has the Antazone AS-N1000 & AS-N2000 Copper Heatpipe Northbridge Coolers up for reviewing, which uses copper heatpipe solutions to cool your northbridge. Bjorn3D has the Antec Fusion Black 430 HTPC case on the test bench, which seems like a nice combination of power supply and case for a HTPC. Also reviewing an Antec case, ThinkComputers has the Antec P190 PC Case in testing, which is the "big boy" in the Antec P1XX series, combining one 650W and one 550W power supply to a total of 1200W through the Antec Neo-Link technology.
