3 Cooler Reviews

VR-Zone has done up a shootout among on the new GlobalWin CAK4 cooper series coolers like the CAK4-88T, CAK4-76T, CAK4-86 compared with the CAK-II38 and CAK-II58 coolers.

These days, trying to look for a suitable cooler fan for your brand new, high & mighty AMD Athlon™ XP processors can be such a "helluva" difficult decision making. There are simply too many brands, too many choices and too much reviews/ recommendations. There's 3 main factors many of us are very much concern when we wanna spent that couple of bucks on a brand new cooler fan, namely - Effectiveness, Performance & Noise Level.

Active-Hardware.com is up next with their review of the Zalman CNPS6000-Cu Socket A & Socket 370 cooler.

The first thing that you will note when you put your hands on the CNPS6000-cu, is its weight. The heatsink alone weights 462g (exceeding in 162g the specification from AMD, and 282g the specification from Intel). This situation has a good side and a bad (or at least, dangerous) side. With more metal to dissipate the heat from the CPU, you will lower its temperature, but by being so heavy, you will have to be extra-extra careful when you move your computer.

Spode's Abode heas a Socket Cooler Round Up.

Performance was not as expected. I hoped for great things from this unit, but got rather less than I'd hoped. Under load, the temperature would not stabilise, fluctuating in a 2ºC range almost periodically. It's most likely that the cooler was moving around on its pathetic clip so cooling in fits and starts. Change the clip if you get one.

Cooler Master ATC-101-SX2 Case Review

OCModShop has taken a look at an awesome case, the Cooler Master ATC-101-SX2.

There is no question about it, I love this case and there are many reasons to love it. This is an awesome case because not only is it made out of aluminum and looks really cool but it has so many great features. I cant say how nice it is to finally review a case which has a removable motherboard tray because I love these things. This case has front USB, it comes with 3 good fans and all of the cutouts are really good. I also love that Cooler Master spent the few extra bucks so that thumbscrews would be provided because they make everything so much easier and faster. There are a lot of spaces for hard drives and there are no sharp edges on any part of the case which is really nice because when you are installing those hard drives you won't have to bleed on them. I also really like the blue LEDs on the case they compliment it so well and are so much better than the normal colors. The only negative aspect to this case is the high price tag on it, if you want to pick this case up its going to cost you about $300 but let me tell you it is worth every penny if you are looking for a really good case.

The CPU Cooler Snap Judgement Guide

Over at Dan's Data! Dan has written an article about what he's learned in the course of reviewing HSF's plus what makes a good one and titled it The CPU Cooler Snap Judgement Guide.

I've written this CPU cooler comparison. It is, roughly speaking, the size of a cow.
In the course of writing, and regularly updating, the comparison, I have learned some general things about CPU coolers. Since there are about a squillion coolers out there that I haven't even seen, it helps to have some rules of thumb to tell you whether they're likely to work well or not. You can't count on being able to find a decent review of every cooler on the market.
The pics and links in this review are to coolers that are in my comparison, but the following rules ought to apply to everything.

Vantec Iceberq Chipset/VGA Cooler Review

Overclocked Cafe has a look at Vantec's Iceberq Chipset/VGA cooler. This is an all copper cooler, that has a small enough footprint to fit almost any board.

My ongoing battle against the forces of evil (read that as heat) extend beyond just the CPU, chipsets are the next in line when it comes to heat aversely effecting performance of a system, and I have tried everything from cutting down socket 7 active coolers, peltier coolers (dismal failure) all the way down the gambit, for the most part the increases in cooling I have gotten have at best been minimal.

Belkin Regulator Pro™ Gold Series Uninterruptible Power Supply Review

Jsi Hardware have just finished their review of the Belkin Regulator Pro™ Gold Series Uninterruptible Power Supply.

Since using the Belkin Regulator Pro™ Gold Series Uninterruptible Power Supply I have not had any problems at all and also with its ability to power my computer when there is a black out means I would have time to save my important work and shutdown safely this also means there is less risk of hard drive damage and data loss.
