In the never-ending battle of CPU cooling, we introduce 2 new competitors, which are manufactured by the one and only Coolermaster...The 2 new HSFs we've been chosen to review are the HSC-V62 (Auto speed CPU cooler) and the HHC-L61 (Alps). As many of you already know, Coolermaster is a quality name brand in terms of CPU cooling, so lets just get right to it and see if Coolermaster has done it again, or if they are loosing their touchMore information at ReviewNation.com
Mikhailtech takes a look at Cooler Master's ATC-600-VX1, one of the very few aluminum desktop cases out there, though I think it would be a great looking loungeroom multimedia PC.
The Plexiglas panel in the front. After all it's what makes at least 50% of the scenic look of the case. It covers the two 5.25" bays and can be opened with just one finger. All you need to do is push softly on the aluminum sticker on the center, the cone that says "Cooler Master", and the panel will slowly open towards you. It's absolutely silent and a mechanism slows it down during opening and closure. You can see part of it on the sides and in this close-up picture.More information at Mikhailtech
myWORLD Hardware has done their piece on Coolermaster's latest HSC-V62 HSF.
Of course, with some modification such as adding a black 80mm delta fans helped a lot but another problem arises again! This time around is the noise factor! Could we do our daily computing task in such a noisy enviroment especially the noise generated by the heatsinks fan that rotates at insanely 8000rpm? Even when you are running a low CPU utilization program, does your heatsink fan really need to run at the optimal speed? The solution, an auto-speed control fan by CoolerMaster, based on their latest HSC-V62.More information at myWORLD Hardware

PC PowerZone has reviewed a couple of 550 watt PSU's, the Starnet 550 and the Antec TruePower 550 with some interesting results!
What's so important about a computer's power supply then? Well, a good PSU (Power Supply Unit) can make the difference between a stable and unstable machine, a highly overclocked machine can soon fail with a poor PSU and a hard-worked, 24/7 machine will soon cause a poor PSU to give up and die.More information at PC PowerZone

Think back to the 3DFX VooDoo 5 days, The Inquirer is reporting that the ATi Radeon 9700 will require an external power supply.
It was easy to assume that even Radeon 9700 would need external power to be able to work simply as this chip will have about 50 million transistors more than TI 4600 chip, and is still the fastest chip on market.More information at The Inquirer.
