Hardware Roundup: Wednesday Edition

Nemo - April 1, 2009 02:50AM in Affiliate News

Continuing in the tradition of aircraft-inspired cases begun with the B2 Stealth Bomber, In Win is back with its X-Fighter case. We also get another opportunity to check out the Cooler Master HAF 932 full-tower chassis (reviewed by OCC here). Intel released its Nehalem-based Xeon processors this week and Legit Reviews examines a pair of the server processors. On the desktop side today's roundup turned up a review of the AMD Phenom II X4 940 processor (also reviewed by OCC here). Every now and then we turn up a nugget or two and today that means a look at a group called NecroResistatnce that's using the Left4Dead game as a training simulator. The group is based in Idaho if that tells you anything.
