By: Array

When it comes to overclocking one of the most basic things that an enthusiast does is move from air-cooling their hardware with fans to liquid cooling for better performance. Some enthusiasts have room for giant radiator setups and other don't. For the enthusiast that want liquid cooling with a system that can fit completely inside the case, CoolIT Systems has become one of the best brands to shop.

XFX aren't out to steal the entire market with this release, obviously it's their first range and first time into the PSU market but all of the important features are included at a competitive price.

Antec's breath of fresh air - Antec LanBoy Air

By: Array

Antec have a new case that's about to be released, in the famous LanBoy range, the LanBoy Air.

 

TweakTown image news/1/6/16921_4.jpg

 

It seems like a great case for lanners, or for people who like a change (within the case). I think I might end up getting one - I loved the previous LanBoy cases and this seems like a next-gen change on that same great case.

 

Antec have the following speel on it:

 

"The LanBoy Air sports unprecedented top-to-bottom mesh construction for extensive air ventilation and includes five 120 mm fans (two front-adjustable speed 120 mm blue LED fans and three 120 mm TwoCool™ two-speed blue LED fans) with space to mount up to 15 total fans. The fans are positioned to create positive air pressure, bringing cool air in and around hard drives and graphics cards, and expelling hot air and dust through the chassis' perforated panels.

 

The LanBoy Air has an entirely reconfigurable interior with 11 total drive bays (including nine modular bays to accommodate six internal 3.5" drives and three external 5.25" drives.) The 3.5" drives can also take advantage of Antec's exclusive AirMount™ suspension mounting system, which suspends hard drives in the drive bays, reducing vibration and increasing ease of use. Additionally, the 5.25" and 3.5" drive bays can be easily configured in three horizontal orientations: facing the front, right or left to accommodate users' desired chassis arrangements. This chassis also comes with two internal bottom-mounted 2.5" SSD drive bays.

The adapters for some of the smallest machines are much bigger than they really need to be. A fat power adapter adds bulk and weight to the gear you have to carry around with you on the road. Cooler Master has unveiled a new power adapter that is claimed to be the world's smallest 95W adapter.
