GeIL is proud the announce the launch of the GeIL EVO Cyclone Memory Cooling System, featuring the world's 1st memory cooling fan with LED display, embedded with thermal sensor, indicating the surrounding temperature and real-time fan RPM. The Cyclone LED
logo fan will display "GeIL"/ "EVO Cyclone" in one cycle then automatically switching to "Temperature"/"RPM" in the next.
We recently heard about Corsair's endeavours to being a TEC revolution, to the memory cooling solution field.
With images coming courtesy of TEAM.AU, Fudzilla reports that Corsair's TEC memory cooling solution, has been captured on camera.
Whilst there may be further changes to the product, it is believed that the usage of different wattage TECs could be possible, bringing an element of customisability into the game.

Kingston has today unveiled a new series of DDR2 and DDR3 memory kits it dubs the HyperX T1 Series. All modules in this series sport Kingston's new T1 heatspreaders with Thermal Xchange Technology which are designed to better dissipate heat for superior results during overclocking.
"The HyperX T1 Series heatspreaders are made of heavy-duty extruded aluminum with extended fins and HTX technology for maximum thermal conditions when users take their systems to the extreme," said Dara Sun, product manager, Kingston®. "Any gamer or overclocker who intends to dominate with memory will want to use Kingston's T1 series, which is a great complement to our existing line of HyperX modules with the lower profile heatsink."
For full details on the kits available along with specs and pricing, check out Kingston's official PR here folks.
Fountain Valley, CA -- November 12, 2008 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is shipping select DDR3 and DDR2 HyperX® memory modules with new T1 heatspreaders. The taller heatspreaders utilize HyperX Thermal Xchange (HTX) technology to further diffuse heat buildup when overclocking. HTX technology is the latest innovation from Kingston's engineers who are dedicated to building the fastest memory for enthusiasts who push system performance.
NVIDIA has rolled out another super powered, but also super expensive Quadro series graphics card today, dubbed the Quadro FX 5800. At a price tag just shy of $3,500 U.S. this card is purely for the professional/workstation crowd and boasts some pretty mean specs.
This card is the world's first to feature a whopping 4GB of memory and offers up to 102GB/s of memory bandwidth along with a fill rate of 52 billion texels/sec and 300 million triangles/sec. It also features 240 CUDA parallel processing cores and is ideally suited for oil and gas exploration, medical imaging, styling and design, and scientific visualization.
It's not likely a card of this calibre will end up in your rig, but for interests sake and wow factor, you can view the full announcement on it here.
Professionals searching for oil, diagnosing illness or styling the next high-performance luxury vehicle all have one thing in common, the need for advanced visual computing solutions. NVIDIA Corporation, the world leader in visual computing technologies, today unveiled the most powerful professional graphics card in graphics history - the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800.
"The size and complexity of data is growing at an exponential rate. The challenge for today's professional is to make sense of the mountain of data by distilling it into a form they can comprehend, analyze and use to make impactful decisions," said Jeff Brown, general manager, Professional Solutions, NVIDIA. "At stake can be billions of investment dollars, or even people's lives. The Quadro FX 5800 has advanced features to allow massive datasets to be viewed beyond traditional 3D enabling professionals to make fast and accurate decisions."
Since the entrance of Gainward (and Palit) into the realm of AMD graphics solutions, we've seen a positive increase in the creativity levels displayed by the Sunnyvale, CA based company's AIBs.
As this report from TechConnect Magazine conveys, PowerColor has been hard at work to bring GDDR4 memory to an HD 4850 offering near you. Whilst the HD 4850 was relegated to GDDR3 memory and not, the GDDR5 brethren bestowed on the HD 4870, PowerColor has worked to partially readdress the balance.
Its PCS+ HD4850 512MB GDDR4 SKU, as the name suggests, is endowed with a ZEROtherm cooling solution and clocked at 675 MHz and 2200 MHz for the RV770 GPU and GDDR4 memory, respectively.
Well you knew it had to happen. After a couple of years dealing with high voltage requirements for fast DDR3 the memory makers had to find a way to come down on that to work with the new Core i7.
Kingston has just announced a complete line up of DDR3 tri-channel kits all the way up to DDR3 2000. All of these kits run at 1.65v which is a big departure from the current dual channel 2000MHz kits that need 2.0 to 2.1 to run properly.

"Kingston is excited to bring the fastest DDR3 triple channel memory products to market as we are the first to deliver 2000MHz gaming kits of three with Intel's reduced voltage," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston®. "All of our triple-channel kits can be overclocked manually or by using XMP-ready profiles. The 2GHz modules have been tested to support up to that speed on ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboards while the Intel DX58SO motherboards have been tested up to 1600MHz."
eva2000 of i4memory.com has compiled a list of all the memory manufacturers to have released triple channel kits for the Core i7/X58 platform thus far and he will continue to update it as more are announced.
For those of you looking to get the most out of your new Nehalem rig, this may help in deciding which kit is the right one as there are now quite a few triple channel offerings on the market from the likes of A-DATA, Corsair, G.Skill, Kingston OCZ and others.
Hexus has just discovered that Corsair are currently testing out a mega serious piece of cooling tech for memory modules to bring temps lower than ever, which theoretically should allow heavy overclockers to pump insane amounts of volts (allowing for higher clockspeeds/lower latencies) with a bit more peace of mind.
What you see there is one very chunky waterblock which also includes a TEC/Peltier to help brings temps down to sub-ambient temps. However, they still have quite a bit of rigerous testing ahead of them yet. And depending on how things go, we may or may not see it come to market.
The hardest thing to get around will be condensation buildup, which can lead to a potential death sentence for hardware.
It is assumed that should it make it into mass production, it will likely be further complimenting Corsairs existing enthusiast lineup that we know to be the Dominator series. It will certainly be interesting to see how the progress of this thing turns out. We'll keep you posted as we hear more about it.
