Shane McGlaun | Cases, Cooling & PSU | Mon, Oct 25 2010 11:04 AM CDT

I was just talking about the new all black Kingston HyperX memory cooler that would look good inside one of the all black computer cases that are on the market today. If you need an all black case to go with that new Kingston fan a new case from Xigmatek has launched today called the Pantheon. The case is all black inside and out ad has all sorts of features.

The chassis has tool free 5.25-inch drive bays, six hot swappable HDD cages, USB 3.0 port, and dual fan controllers. It also has seven PCI slots and can have up to four 120mm fans on the side of the case for ventilation on the drives. The cooling system also supports a top fan up to 200mm and a bottom fan. In addition, the case has space for a 240/280mm radiator on the top of the chassis.

When it comes time to build up a new gaming PC most of us want something that performs really well. We also tend to want the machine to look good and with many of the cool computer cases on the market today have clear side windows the way the hardware inside the machine looks is as important as how the case looks on the outside.

Kingston has been selling a fan specifically made for its HyperX RAM for a long time now with the same blue color that the HyperX RAM sports. That blue fan might not go well if you are into the stealth look and are using one of the many cases that are black on the inside and out. If the blue color puts you off the fan, Kingston has announced a new black colored fan that cools just as well as the blue one.

Anthony Garreffa | Software | Sun, Oct 24 2010 7:37 PM CDT

It felt like only yesterday that Windows Vista was released, it only felt like a few hours ago that Windows 7 was let out of the bag - but now we're hearing the early rumbles of Windows 8 and rumor has it, it's less than 2 years away.

NVIDIA slashes 50% off Quadro products

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Fri, Oct 22 2010 8:41 PM CDT

NVIDIA, following their just recently (as in 24 hours ago) big price drop on GTX460 and 470 GPU's because of the AMD Radeon 6k series launch have shocked everyone again by dropping Quadro card prices by 50%.

CEO of NVIDIA, Jen Hsun Huang had a few things to say, "We have delivered excellent results in Quadro professional graphics". "We expect to drive revenue and grow market share with new products that are gaining momentum in each of our businesses".

But, any company will say that - can't remember the last time I heard "we expect revenue to drop heavily and our share price to plummet, because we are losing market share". Enter tongue face, :P

LTE-friendly SIM cards may be on their way to AT&T devices

Don Lynn | Mobile Devices | Fri, Oct 22 2010 5:00 PM CDT

Although there's still no official word as to when AT&T will start officially supporting LTE, their choice of flavor for 4G, it looks like they're getting their devices ready for the jump. According to a leaked slide, new LTE-friendly SIM cards are already on the way.

The new cards look to be recognizable by an SKU ending in 53 instead of 47, but probably not much past that. The iPhone 4 has been left out for now due to requiring a micro SIM card to work, unlike most other devices. Sometimes it's not so great being different, is it Apple? Anyways, AT&T fans that are still waiting on an official rollout announcement still have to wait, but it's nice to see some baby steps being taken to get to LTE.

HP Slate 500 to be aimed at the business sector

Don Lynn | Mobile Devices | Fri, Oct 22 2010 3:21 PM CDT

It's seems that HP's long rumored Slate tablet has risen from the ashes of being left for dead and is going to hit the market, but not how everyone originally thought. HP has officially announced the Slate 500 will be squarely pointed away from the consumer market, instead being sold "through HP's small-business, enterprise and government-sales Web storefronts."

Aimed at markets which Tablet PCs have currently been aimed at like hospitals, boardrooms, and restaurants, this Windows 7 based tablet originally saw the light of day at CES, but after the Palm acquisition the Slate seemed to be dead in the water. Specs are suitably high end: an 8.9-inch screen, 1,024-by-768 display powered by a 1.86GHz Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of flash storage, Wi-Fi connectivity, an SD card slot, dual cameras (VGA in front, 3 megapixels in back) and a USB port. The price is just as high end, expected to be $799. Check out the promo video after the break.
