New Corsair Hydro Series H80, H100 coming soon

By: Array

A Swedish-based online store has listed two new entries of Corsair's (until now) unheard of CPU coolers that will fill out the Hydro series - the Hydro H80 and Hydro H100. The new Hydro series coolers maintain the same pre-assembled, closed-loop CPU water-cooling kits.

The new kits seem quite awesome, with the H80 using a thick 120x120mm area radiator that's just as big as the H70 but has a bigger block unit which should amount to higher water flow. The block unit looks like it has a control knob too, which is a new addition. The Hydra H100 on the other hand uses a 240x120mm area radiator and can hold two 120mm fans on either sides, but comes with two fans.

 

Converting the Swedish Krona to US, the H80 is listed at $154 whilst the H100 will set you back $172.50

 

BitFenix tells us why you should buy their Alchemy cables

By: Array

Besides looking at the Outlaw chassis earlier today on our visit to BitFenix we were also given a look at their range of Alchemy multi-sleeve cables.

 

 

You think, what can be so exciting about cables? They are just cables, after all - right? Well, David from BitFenix would probably disagree with you. There is certainly a strong market for case modders and custom system builders out there and BitFenix is looking to impress them with their line of cables for all the various parts inside your PC that require power.

It would even seem like there is an art to cables. In the video above, David goes into a lot of detail about the Alchemy cables and what makes them good. If you were one of those people who thought cables were just cables, give it a watch and let us know what you think.

 


Exclusive: BitFenix Outlaw chassis early video preview

By: Array

Earlier today I ventured back to the BitFenix labs in Taipei where we were given an exclusive look at their upcoming chassis called the Outlaw.

 

 

BitFenix launched with the monster Colossus case and has since worked its way down to smaller and more affordable options for the mass market and those on a budget. The Outlaw is the smallest case I've seen from BitFenix to date, but does small always mean not as good?

 

At least it seems, not in this case. From the early sample we got to see today and that you can see in the video above, there are plenty of good things happening with the Outlaw. For starters and one of the key features is that the motherboard position has been switched so that the PCI slots are up high near the top exhaust fans which should mean high-end video cards are kept cool and the case in general.

Also for such a small case, you will be pleased to hear that it will virtually fit any size video card you can imagine. Since the PCI slots are north and located in line with the optical drive bay areas, as long as you can give up one drive bay, you have loads of room to fit in a very long video card, one longer than I have ever seen anyway.

 

The Outlaw is set to go on sale sometime in July for the amazing price of $49 USD.

Antec launches KÜHLER H2O 920 liquid CPU cooler

By: Array

Antec are releasing something special for their 25th anniversary (btw, congrats Antec!) by releasing the Antec KÜHLER H2O 920 maximum-performance CPU cooler. Antec developed the KÜHLER H2O 920 in conjunction with Asetek, who are an industry-leading supplier of OEM liquid cooling systems for computers. The KÜHLER H2O 920 is an advancement on the popular KÜHLER H2O 620 with several upgrades that allow it to deliver better cooling results to your CPU.

 

 

The KÜHLER H2O 920 features a double-thick radiator with two 120mm fans as well as an interactive fan control in the form of Asetek's ChillControl software. The KÜHLER H2O 920 has some seriously great features and with it being only the second liquid-cooler from Antec, I'm quite excited to see what the future holds for Antec.

 

A look at the BitFenix Shinobi Window and Shinobi cases (video)

By: Array

Earlier on today I stopped by the BitFenix headquarters here in Taipei and spoke with product manager David about the Taiwanese company's new range of mid-range computer cases that are due to go on sale midway through April in the United States and Europe.

 

 

Shinobi is the name and there are two versions: the standard Shinobi coming in at $59 USD and the Shinobi Window coming in at $69 USD. You would be mistaken in thinking that the only difference between the two is that one has a side window and the other one doesn't. While that is partly true, the window version is actually more expensive since it also includes a well designed tool-free design for the hard drives and optical drives.

 

TweakTown image news/1/9/19013_14_a_look_at_the_bitfenix_shinobi_window_and_shinobi_cases_video.png

 

These cases are made of a nice soft rubbery material that is easy on the eye and feels great. The design is simple with no fancy lights or anything like that, but still manages to maintain a good level of style. Internally most of the important chassis design points can be ticked off with good color coding, impressive cable management, a CPU cut out for easily changing coolers without the need of having to remove the motherboard and more.

 

In the video above David gives us a good introduction to both cases.

Thermaltake's Level 10 GT officially hits the streets

By: Array

Thermaltake's redefinition of their original Level 10 case has been in the works for a while now and even made an appearance at Tweaktown's party at CES. Now the Level 10 GT is available for you to make your very own as Thermaltake has announced that their newest case has hit the streets.

 

TweakTown image news/1/8/18857_001_thermaltake_s_level_10_gt_officially_hits_the_streets.jpg

 

While the GT has similar styling to the original Level 10, it has been toned down just a touch without losing any cool factor. Boasting USB 3.0 connectivity, high end cable management, and dual 200mm cooling fans as well as dual radiator and high end video card combatibility the GT is as flexible as it is attractive. The best part is the $269 MSRP will give more customers a shot at this version that could not afford the higher price tag of the original Level 10.

 

Scythe launches Gouriki 3 power supplies

By: Array

Typically when I talk about Scythe we are looking at pics and specs on a new cooling solution for CPUs or video cards. Cooling isn't all Scythe has and the latest product to come for the company is a new line of power supplies. The line is all the same with the only difference being the power rating.

 

[img]3[/img]

 

Scythe offers a 500W, 600W, and 700W version of the new Gouriki 3 PSU. They all share the same dual 12V rail as recommended by the Intel ATX 2.3 standard. The dual rails promise more stable power for computers. The PSUs also all measure in at 150 x 155 x 86mm and have a Scythe fan inside for cooling that is 140mm.

 

That fan has a special circuit that spins at only the speed needed to keep the PSU cool. The maximum speed is 1100rpm for the 500W offering, 1200rpm for the 600W, and 1450rpm for the 700W. The line is rated 80 Plus Bronze and has lots of protection built in for overvolt and more. Pricing and availability are unknown.
