- DFI's new K8M800 Inifinity-based SFF

Along with Antec's help, DFI have also decided to join in on the SFF craze with the announcement of their Athlon64 based SFF PC. SFFTech were able to provide us with a preview!

With SFF systems becoming ever-more popular, its no surprise that DFI would launch a Small Form Factor. This isn't another Shuttle clone or "Just like Shuttle, only better" model, though. DFI is making a real effort to launch a product line that'll meaningfully differentiate itself and offer consumers a new option.

- Gainward Creates Noiseless Graphics Cards

If you're a fan of nVidia based video cards and love to keep your PC as quiet as possible, you'll love the direction Gainward are now heading. This week they've launched their "SilentFX PowerPack! Ultra/980 FX 5700 XP "Professional" graphics card" which features a passive cooling system based on heat-pipe technology. The card also has some other very sweet features, all of which you can read more about over at XBit Labs.

Historically noiseless graphics cards with passive coolers were based on graphics processors from ATI Technologies. Quiet operation and high performance has been a serious trump in ATI's hands, but looks like NVIDIA's partners among add-in-cards makers now also want to offer something that is not only fast and noiseless, but provide something ATI-based rivals do not give.
