- Intel Aircooling - Heatsink Roundup

The folks at Madshrimps take a look at four very capable heatsinks for the Intel platform. They cover the Scythe Kamakaze, Swiftech MCX478-V, Speeze EE429B0 CopperSnake™, & Thermalright SLK947-U.


Welcome to the world of overclocking and powerful CPU's. Here every degree matters. Higher overclocks, more power, ...


But, you have one extra problem, sound.... As CPU's consume more and more power, and generate more and more heat, you'll need better heatsinks, and faster, and thus louder fans,...
You can't really enjoy a game or movie when you have a Vantec tornado fan next to you, to keep your computer stable...


So, I wanted to make a mini Pentium 4 heatsink roundup. Thanks to our sponsors Bacata and Speeze, I'm able to compare 4 rather special heatsinks.


- Coolermaster Musketeer

If you're one of those people that loves to spice up the aesthetics of your case however possible, Coolermaster's new Musketeer takes up a 5"1/4 bay and looks absolutely terrific!, Does it DO anything cool though? err, nothing mindblowing in that dept as SubZeroTech point out.


Reviewing a new sort of device is always a tricky affair. In the business of computer hardware, you rarely end up with an entirely new category of peripheral, but rather, something new is born as a combination of two things or an aesthetic or functional twist on existing devices. Today, Just such a device presents itself for review. Today I review the Coolermaster Musketeer, self described as a ¡§systems dynamics detector.¡¨ The Musketeer is an aluminum front bay device, with roughly the same dimensions as a CD-ROM drive. Attempting to appeal to case modders and priced at around $45, the Musketeer brings some interesting concepts to the table. We¡¦ll see if it¡¦s worth the price.
