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

Cameron Wilmot | Cases, Cooling & PSU | May 31, 2010 7:50 PM CDT

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.

Corsair intros AX Gold PSUs and Airflow Pro RAM LED meters

Cameron Wilmot | Cases, Cooling & PSU | May 31, 2010 7:50 PM CDT

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Yesterday we visited the folks over at Corsair at their suite at the Grand Hyatt and they were showing off a range of new products which improve on its usual suspects that we have came to known over the years.

First up we got an introduction from Jim regarding Corsair's brand new Airflow Pro which is a parametric display that is able to hook to the RAM by means of a simple link cable that is able to detect things like RAM temperature and usage. It is able to visually monitor up to six memory modules from the single meter, so all you folks out there run triple-channel memory setups are all set to go.

Secondly Jim gave us a run-down on Corsair's also brand new line-up of AX Professional Series Gold power supply units which as the name would suggest are 80 Plus Gold certified. They have all sorts of good stuff going on inside that are said to dramatically decrease the ripple effect and provide a very solid and stable system with its use of high-end parts that are usually reserved for server level power units.

Dell Streak's Gorilla Glass display: Is it as durable as advertised?

Don Lynn | Mobile Devices | May 31, 2010 5:01 PM CDT

Receiving a prototype of a cool new mobile device to go through the features and toys would be enough to keep most of us happy and occupied. The folks at Engadget think a little bit differently though. When they were told that the 5 inch Gorilla Glass display, made by Corning, was said to stand up to darn near anything the average consumer could throw at it, they decided to throw caution to the wind and put it to the test.

While they didn't exactly take a sledgehammer to the Streak or run a knock off of "Will it Blend?", this is a fairly impressive display, especially to the tech geeks like me who have small children and can see something like this happening to our own toys. You can almost hear the Streak chuckling at the tester banging on it with the pen with only a few ink spots left for his effort. Hopefully Corning's Gorilla Glass can catch on with more MIDs and help me take "will my kids destroy it?" out of the equation when shopping for a tablet or smartphone.

NVIDIA's Future is so Bright...

Chris Ramseyer | Gaming | May 31, 2010 1:05 PM CDT

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - ... they gotta wear shades. Sometimes I just can't help myself but then again neither could NVIDIA today. Starting off a keynote speech asking for a moment to reflect on your technological achievements isn't a really bad way to kick things off, unless it's everyone's job in the room to already know everything you have accomplished.

Things have to be tough for the Green Team as of late and by starting off saying that we are going to look back only tells me you don't have a lot to say about your future. At that point I had a feeling it was going to be a show with a few prop tossed in. Here we see the NVIDIA CEO having a bit of a scripted conversation with ASUS' CEO. Not a bad prop to be able to call on.

New Gigabyte Server Boards Will Offer Enhanced Storage

Chris Ramseyer | Storage | May 31, 2010 12:22 PM CDT

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Gigabyte has two products that they will not be showing on the show floor but will have on hand for private eyes. Since my focus has been on the storage market for the last couple of years now I spotted these gems right away and thought about the possibilities all day.

New Gigabyte Server Boards Will Offer Enhanced Storage 01 | TweakTown.com

With 24 memory slots this unnamed workstation / server board has a lot of potential for many things but what is interesting here is the 4x SAS connector in the back that would allow connection to an AIC MiniBOD right out of the box without the need for an additional HBA add in controller.

Cameron Wilmot | Cases, Cooling & PSU | May 31, 2010 7:53 AM CDT

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Earlier on today we stopped by NZXT's booth at the Grand Hyatt to get a look at some of its upcoming products that will end up going on sale later this year.

NZXT showed us a range of different products, but the big one for designer and co-founder Johnny this year is the upcoming Phantom computer case that he kindly introduced to us. It's a white case made out of plastic with some attractive curves and some good design with some new concepts ideas that we haven't seen in the part.

With what we have seen from the likes of Ikonik, BitFenix, Corsair and now NZXT, consumers are going to have some really brilliant choices on the case market in a short time.

Steve Dougherty | Displays & Projectors | May 31, 2010 5:45 AM CDT

SID 2010 - With lesser power consumption being a strong point of focus in the computing industry Samsung has reached a very impressive milestone in developing an 18.5-inch sized display that uses just 6.3w of measily power to operate properly.

Given such low power requirements, Samsung has designed it so it can be powered entirely from USB ports. That's right; this 18.5-inch TN-film panel display can draw all the power it needs from just a couple USB 2.0 ports, with one of those USB 2.0 connections also acting as the display connection.

COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2010 - MSI just got done with hosting its pre-Computex press conference and launched and showcased a host of new products.

We just posted our hands-on look at the MSI WindPad 110 that is based around the Google Android operating system with ARM processing technology, but the difference with the WindPad 100 s that is build around already well known technology that netbooks use - the Intel Atom to be exact. It ships with Windows 7 Home Premium with a special MSI GUI.

MSI WindPad 110 10-inch Android tablet hands-on

Cameron Wilmot | Mobile Devices | May 31, 2010 1:38 AM CDT

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - MSI just got done with hosting its pre-Computex press conference and launched and showcased a host of new products.

Update: Sorry folks, we had a bad line when trying to get the video uploaded and as you may have noticed, it was partly cut off towards the end. We're working on resolving the signal issues for further video content to go up during the course of this week straight from the show floor.

As we expected during this show, MSI launched one of its first tablet computers, it's called the WindPad 110. It is a 10-inch tablet based on the Google Android operating system. The MSI PM that we spoke to was a little tight on full details, but she did tell us that the retail price should be around 499 USD and come out in a month or two after the Windows and Atom based WindPad 100 that we will cover a bit later.

So, how does it compared to the iPad folks? Let us know by commenting below.
