Mike "Darthtanion" Wright has just finished up some testing on the new Thermaltake Crystal Orb Chipset Cooler. it's a bit more powerful model than the tried and true Blue Orb, so come join us as we see if it can handle the stress of cooling a GeForce3 GPU.
EXHardware has in it possession the Cooler Master ATC-201 aluminum case and so if your interested in an aluminium case check out what they found with this one compared against the Lian Li alternative.
For those who want to take the jump to water cooling, 2FastCPU wants to tell you about the Z4 Copper Intercooler Kit. here's a snip:
"This kit comes with many parts, all which we will be explaining in extensive detail. First, we'll start off with the radiator. The radiator coming with this kit is 5x7" and they also sell a 12x5" as an upgrade. For most, the smaller 5x7" radiator will do great. A notable feature of this radiator is it has the capacity to have two 120mm fans, one for each side, allowing overclockers to gain even better performance if needed."
For those who have been looking for a way to cool down those pesky hard drives, head on over to Inside-Hardware and see if the Kingwin Super Hard Drive Cooler is just what the doctor ordered. here's a snip:
"As you can see from the picture, this is an attractive addition to any case. It gives it a bit of design but of course provides functionality. Also, for those of you who have a limited number of 3.5"
internal bays this is a nice way to be able to get another drive into an unused 5.25" bay."
8Balls Hardware wants to share their findings with you concerning three heatsinks from the same company. So go see what they thought of the Fortis Technology Coolers. here's a snip:
"Fortis Technology, another new comer to the CPU cooler market. The name Fortis has cropped up quite recently, about a month or two ago, with theit slogan, "Designed for overclockers, by overclockers." Incidentally, the company also produces monitors and speakers, but thats beside the point of this review. Today we are going to take a look at some of their latest offerings the Fortis A90, A92 and A102 CPU coolers."
hadn't heard from the folks over at OC Opolis for a while, but they still have their noses to the grindstone for us. Take a peek at their latest review that covers the Cooler Guys Silver Pro Gamer Case. here's a snip:
"The only other really notable feature is that there is a selection of ports up front, fire wire, usb, game port, sound jacks and volume control. All useful, especially USB for digi cams etc and the game port for your joystick, the volume control though because the ports are right at the bottom of the case isn't very well placed."
Case Modders Australia has just posted a review that covers not one, but two heatsinks. Check out their take on the Dynatron Micro-Fin Copper Coolers and see if they're worth your hard-earned dollars. here's a snip:
"Microfin technology is a construction technique utilized by Dynatron that enables them to produce a much higher fin density compared to other heatsinks. The great thing about Microfin technology is that it doesn't rely on normal manufacturing techniques, (ie extrusion, forging and die-casting) but rather cuts through the aluminium or copper block to form the heatsink."
For those who want some great cooling without the hassle of doing it themselves, there is the Cooler Guys Wind Tunnel III Case. here's a snip:
"With the great success of the original 'WindTunnel, Todd over at the CoolerGuys released the WindTunnel II, and most recently, the Wind Tunnel III and IV. Based upon the Fong Kai FK320, this is visually one of the most beautiful cases one will ever find. For this reason, I chose to review this instead of the WindTunnel IV. So how does this latest work of art from the CoolerGuys perform in an everyday environment? Read on to find out!"
Overclocker Cafe has just posted a review of the Cooler Guys Wind Tunnel III Case. here's a snip:
"I do have to say this is one of the better cases I have had a chance to get my hands on. Its sleek sports car like appearance is very pleasing to the eye. The case is a mid tower with three external 5 1/4" bays and one 3 1/2" bay. Internally, it has three more 3 1/2" bays (it has four sets of mounting holes, but only three are usable at a time with standard HDD's.) It has a total of 4 fans not counting the PSU. I have listed the specifications of each fan above. The total CFM of these babies is 256.6 (Ouch), and the loudest is 42 dBA. I do not have to tell you this thing is circulating some serious air."
CoolerGuys and ThermalTake have teamed up to help with WTC and Pentagon disaster. All proceeds of from the purchase of the new Volcano 6Cu will be donated to the Red Cross. Our goal is to sell 1000 units by September 23rd and deliver $20,000 to the Red Cross!
XTreme Mods wants us to know about the Blue Orb Chipset Cooler, so head on over to take a peek.
