GPU-Z ~ a free utility designed to give you all information about your video card and GPU

GPU-Z ~ a free utility designed to give you all information about your video card and GPU. It provides displays adapter, GPU and display information. It also provides displays overclock, default clocks and 3D clocks. I use it to trace my ATI HD 4870 GPU temp and fan speed. It has log to file function. Therefore, you can trace these during game play.

Prime95 ~ CPU torture tool

Prime95 is also known as Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS). It is a tool to find World Record Primes. However, it can be used as CPU torture tool as well. It is a great tool to stress your CPU because the torture test will use up all your CPU core and 100% CPU utilization. Who want to torture his own CPU anyway? Overclocker like me will need it. Besides this tool, I also use SpeedFan to monitor CPU temperature and CPU-Z for CPU core speed and bus speed.

My PDA ~ HP iPAQ rz1710 Pocket PC

HP iPAQ rz1710 Pocket PC is my personal digital assistant. It is my first PDA and I am still using it currently. It has been with me for 5 years. Woo… That’s a long year for a PDA. We have lot of interesting PDA phone / smart phone nowadays like the famous Apple iPhone, HTC Touch series, LG KM900, T-Mobile G1, BlackBerry Curve 8900 and more… Why I did not upgrade my humble HP iPAQ rz1710 Pocket PC to anyone of them? Hmm… It is still working (I changed the battery once). And I don’t have reason to replace it.

Free Intel Core2 Extreme quad-core processor QX9650

Free Intel Core2 Extreme quad-core processor QX9650!!! Yes, you did not read it wrong. Intel Malaysia is giving out Intel Core2 Extreme quad-core processor QX9650 for FREE. But it is engineering sample, not production unit. What is engineering sample? Basically, it is not for sales. It should be used within Intel or by authorized personnel outside of Intel for purposes of testing, evaluating, and/or pre-configuring systems. Engineering sample processors are designed and built like normal processors, but offer additional features for testing purposes.
