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.

Vantec 420w "Stealth" Aluminium Power Supply Review

Club Overclocker checks out Vantec's 420w "Stealth" Aluminium PSU.

It has been a very slow process, but the power supply manufacturers are catching up with the CPU race. It has taken them what seems like an eternity, but they are catching up. The funny thing is, due to the fact that the power supply companies took so long to upgrade their technology, other companies that you wouldn't have expected to see make power supplies have stepped up to fill in the gaps. One such company is a trusted manufacturer of cooling products, Vantec. I can only think of two, maybe three companies who currently make high quality power supplies worthy of putting in a high end computer system. Now it looks like we can add Vantec's name to that very short list. Vantec has just introduced their Stealth Power Supply that makes a giant leap in what we have come to expect from a power supply.

Coolermaster "Ultra Series" Rounded Cables Review

Icrontic has checked out Coolermaster's "Ultra Series" rounded cables for you.

Coolermaster, a name associated mostly with OEM heatsinks and top notch aluminum cases has stepped into the retail market with a new line of products. Among these products is its line of rounded cables. Their first line of cables was a simple, no frills type of cable, although it did boast a better build quality than the "average rounded cable" and aluminum foil shielding. Now, they've come up with a whole new model of rounded cables called the "Ultra series", not only do they have the same previous features but also have some very obvious new ones.
