Prolimatech readies up Samuel 17 low-profile CPU cooler

By: Steve Dougherty | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: May 21, 2010 11:32 am

Prolimatech has proven itself to be capable of designing top performing CPU coolers in the past that get recognized with ease amongst all the top-end performers on the market.

 

The company has just unveiled a new model which is designed with space constraints in mind (ie. in mATX and mITX systems). It's a down draft style cooler which despite being quite compact in size (just 45mm tall and 92mm wide), can still have a 120mm fan mounted to it which will further assist in cooling components surrounding the CPU socket area.

The cooler also sports six nickel plated copper heat-pipes to better assist in heat transfer. All current as well as some older AMD and Intel sockets are supported.

 

When it hits shelves as of sometime next month it'll cost around $40 U.S.

Newzbin is Down: This Time for Good

By: Chris Ramseyer | More News: Software | Posted: May 21, 2010 8:04 am

The courts have spoken and the people have shed a tear. Newzbin has just taken its place next to many other user friendly "content" websites and P2P software companies. Any announcement on the Newzbin website states:

 

Newzbin Closed

Regrettably the Newzbin website has to close as a result of the legal action against us. More details here: http://deepsharer.wordpress.com/2010/05/18/newzbin-gossip/

 

But the post Newzbin Story is just beginning.

Customer possibly shipped a GTX 465 by mistake

By: Don Lynn | More News: Video Cards | Posted: May 21, 2010 4:14 am

There are very few times in life where getting something that's supposedly worse that what you ordered is a good thing. Receiving a video card that has not even been released yet could be one of those times. Imagine the surprise of the guy who was possibly shipped a Galaxy GTX 465, which is not slated for release until June 1st, instead of the GTX 470 he ordered.

 

news/1/5/15364_002.jpg

 

He apparently became suspicious when he installed the card and the NVIDIA drivers would not take and he had to change the device id to get it to install. The card identifies with the reported GTX 465's lowered clocks and 1024mb of RAM.

Foxconn's Tegra 2 tablet test driven

By: Don Lynn | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: May 21, 2010 3:48 am

Rumors began swirling about an NVIDIA branded tablet at CES back in January, but nothing solid had been released. The folks at Engadget have managed to lay their hands on one of these Android powered prototypes and got to take it for a spin.

 

news/1/5/15363_001.jpg

 

The Tegra-2 powered tablet is manufactured by Foxconn and sports an 8.9" WSVGA screen, a 1ghz ARM Cortex 9 CPU, and 1GB of RAM. It also features a front facing camera. The tablet was not seen booting into standard Android's full UI, it was only used running a 3D football title to show off the graphics punch this tablet has to offer. I guess the only question besides price and release date is the age old one: "Will it run Crysis?"
