Lian Li has pushed the PSU down into the front, which is a weird, yet nice change, and allows the case to be a little smaller than usual. Even with this little shrink, it will still pack a punch in terms of the hardware that will fit inside. As for the look, it's a beautiful anodized black, which not only looks great, but feels great to the touch. Inside we have a black and red interior, which looks slick.

NZXT unveiles the new Kraken G10 GPU mounting kit

Cooling your CPU use to be the most important part of your PC if you wanted to extract any extra performance from the machine, but now CPU cooling is easy and very efficient. The hardest component to cool in a modern PC is the discrete GPU. There are aftermarket air coolers available, but they are few and far in between.

 

TweakTown image news/3/4/34138_1_nzxt_unveiles_the_new_kraken_g10_gpu_mounting_kit.jpg

 

Liquid cooling your GPU is another option, but is expensive and something only advanced users should tackle, until now that is. Today NZXT unveiled a new mounting bracket kit for its Kraken G10 liquid All-in-One CPU Cooler that allows the G10 to easily mount to many of the popular discrete GPUs on the market today. The mount allows the Kraken G10 to directly attach to the GPU chip while a built-in fan keeps the rest of the card cool.

 

I feel that this is a great idea and wonder why no one has thought of it before now. Many PC enthusiast have at least one All-in-One cooler laying around from previous machines and they could be put to use quite easily if mounts were available. The mounting kit is available in red, white, and black finishes, and retails for just $29.99 at NZXT's armory store. For a list of compatible video cards, head over to the NZXT source link below.

GIGABYTE's G1 Sniper 5 board gets some love from EK's new waterblock

There are some enthusiast out there who says that custom watercooling peaked a few years ago before the invention of the all-in-one liquid cooling solution. Then there are enthusiast like myself who feel that the golden age of liquid cooling our PCs has not even began to arrive yet. With the recent inclusion of things like full motherboard waterblocks and rigid acrylic tubing, we have only begun to see the best of what the water cooling industry has to offer.

 

TweakTown image news/3/3/33824_1_gigabyte_s_g1_sniper_5_board_gets_some_love_from_ek_s_new_waterblock.jpg

 

Today EK Waterblocks has released its latest complete coverage motherboard waterblock for GIGABYTE's G1 Sniper 5 motherboard. The new EK-FB GA G1 Sniper 5 waterblock directly cools the motherboard's Intel Z87 southbridge, PLX PEX 8474 PCIe Lane Splitter, and the power regulators such as the VRM and MOSFETs. The block is constructed out of nickel plated electrolytic copper and is capped by high-quality POM Acetal. The block is fed and evacuated by just two G1/4 fittings, and employs a high-flow internal design.

 

As a GIGABYTE G1 Sniper 5 owner and extreme water-cooling enthusiast, I can not wait to get my hands on one of these waterblocks. While I will miss the military themed styling of the motherboard's stock air/water blocks, I feel that this block makes it even more badass! The block is available now for $172.
