By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - A-DATA had plenty of stuff on display at their booth and this time we get a look at the companies range of power supplies that it has just launched. As you should know, A-DATA is primarily a memory come that also does pen drives and solid state disk drives, so it will be interesting to see how they end up performing when we put them through the paces.

 

 

A-DATA is not messing around from the outset and in the video we get an introduction to the Eye of Horus technology. This is an intelligent LED fan feature that is able to indicate power output from one of the A-DATA Horus Series units. You have 0%~50% with a green light, 50%~100% with a blue light and over 100% with a red light.

 

There are currently five models in the series including 1200, 850, 750, 650 and 550 watt versions. Each come with 80 Plus Bronze certification, Japanese made caps and they should go on sale sometime in Q3 this year.

We'll surely have all of these in for review soon for Chad to put through the paces.

 

Warning: Do not try this LN2 drinking trick at home

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - We have seen some crazy things during our time on this planet, but none that are really as cool as the liquid nitrogen drinking trick that only few are willing to perform.

 

 

While we were stopped over at the Antec booth, famous overclocker and friend of TweakTown, Nick Shih performed the trick for our camera and your eyes.

 

The title is designed to be fun, but really, do not try this at home. Suffice to say, things could go real bad, real quickly.

Cooler Master mixes things up with the V6 GT CPU cooler

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Besides the new gaming mouse we checked out earlier, Cooler Master were also showcasing one of their latest CPU coolers at the show called the V6 GT.

 

 

Readers of TweakTown should be very familiar with the V10 which is recommended in our Commander SBG system, as well the cheaper V8 that also packs a punch. Cooler Master has decided to expand on a good thing and bring out the V6 GT CPU cooler.

 

Again it's a cheaper and more cut down than the V8, but being new still manages to add in some cooler new features such as a light strip that can be programmed to show three different colors, or of course you can just turn it off.

 

IN WIN Silencer prototype case aims to totally eliminate noise

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - IN WIN were showing off a whole range of new products during the show including ones which we have reviewed recently, but the one which really caught our eyes was an upcoming chassis called the Silencer.

 

 

Right now it is still in the prototype stage and it may not go on sale until sometime in early 2011, but if it does I reckon that would end up selling a bunch of them. As the name suggests, the Silencer aims to totally eliminate sound produced by fans and other moving parts inside the system by deploying a range of noise cancelling and dampening technologies throughout various sections of the case.

 

What first got out attention was the somewhat odd gap between the back of the case and the other back of the case, err yeah that didn't make sense. It directs sound to the back of the case the way hot air extraction normally works, but instead the sound is caught by a special layering of foam position and cut in a certain way that the sound is absorbed.

 

Thermaltake Armor A30 unique sized small case fits full-size video cards

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Again we are back with Ramsom from Thermaltake and this time he showed us another of their highlight products at this year's show and it is the Armor A30.

 

 

Stated as being crafted for battle, the A30 is a rather unique sized case that should end up being very suitable for gamers on the move. Inside you can fit two standard desktop size hard drives as well as two 2.5-inch drives such as SSDs. What is even better is that for such a compact and good looking case, it even is even able to support full size video cards such as the ATI Radeon 5970.

 

The sample we saw was only a very early mock-up that was handmade to display during the show, but still Ramsom tells us development is going really well and it should hit the market in around three months for around 130 USD.

 

Thermaltake's green Jing 16dBA CPU cooler ready to fly off shelves?

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Ramsom from Thermaltake showed us one of their highlight products at this year's show and we are talking about the impressive new Jing CPU cooler.

 

 

Jing is a Chinese word which directly translate to quiet in English. Quite suitably named, the Jing even when having its two cool looking 120mm green fans with specially designed blades running at full speed of 1300 rpm, the thing only has a noise level of 16dBA. The guy sitting next to me tells me that is about the same amount of noise electricity makes as it passes through circuits, in other words, it's silent or jing for your Chinese lesson today.

 

Ramsom tells us that the cooler should be out on the market and selling like hotcakes in about two months. If the ratings and such stay the same, it's sure to come out looking really good in our test graphs after Chad puts it through the usual paces.

 

Corsair expands chassis line-up with 600T Graphite mid-tower

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - They say that looks can be deceiving and Corsair's whole thing with its new 600T Graphite mid-tower computer case is that its mid sized on the outside, but full sized on the inside.

 

 

Corsair has taken the fundamentals of its previous generation cases such as the 800D and 700D and applied it to the 600T which it is officially launching today. It takes many of the features we like with the 800D such as the smartly designed inside panel cable management and more, but then adds in some new changes.

 

For one, one of the drive bay racks can be removed providing support for video cards up to 15-inches in length. You can also remove the top extracting 200mm fan and replace it with a 2 x 120mm radiator and fans which as mentioned it pretty rare for a case of this size.
