- SFF Falcon Fragbox tied with nVidia

A press release from nVidia today points out that Falcon Northwest has standardized their new and very attractive range of "FragBox" small form factor systems on GeForce FX GPU's. Two versions of the FragBox are available thus far, the standard Fragbox ships with the 5600 Ultra, whilst the Fragbox Pro has the inclusion of the monster 5950 Ultra.


"After exhaustive testing and troubleshooting, it is clear that NVIDIA is the way to go with our FragBox line." said Kelt Reeves, President of Falcon Northwest. "NVIDIA provides the FragBox with graphics solutions that are not only faster than the competition, but run cooler and with much better reliability in the harsh environment of a small form-factor PC."


- XICE - Watercooling for everyone


I just discovered a press release over at SilentPCReview regarding a new and very simple to install watercooling kit from a german company by the name of "XICE". Head over to the official site for more details. You can also purchase the kit over at PCSilent for 349 Euros.


The Xice Watercooling System combines easy installation without any modifications of the case, ultra-quiet PC operation and stylish design. Compared to other solutions which consist of several separate parts, the Xice solution uses one external cooling device. The 'ExternalCool' combines heat exchanger, pump and fluid reservoir in a designer-chassis. The pump gets its power directly from the power-supply of the PC. This ensures that the pump is always working when the PC is turned on.
