- LiteOn Dual Layer Surfaces

As the next step in DVD burning technology comes closer, Clubic have sourced some specs along with an image of LiteOn's first dual-layer Sohw-832s DVD burner, and apparently it's due for release by as early as the end of the month too.


We have just obtained the specifications of first engraver DVD+R9 (double layer) of the famous manufacturer taiwanais Liteon.

- Coolermaster Hyper6 KHC-V81-U1 HSF

FrostyTech have managed to get their hands on Coolermaster's latest flagship heatsink, their Hyper6 P4/A64 cooler uses heatpipe technology to the extreme. Six individual pipes are used in conjunction with the chunky copper heatsink and an 80mm fan with a speed controller included. This beefy cooler certainly looks to provide the goods based on Frosty's findings.


Fresh from the chrome plated Jet4 wonder, Coolermaster are back with the brand new 6-heatpipe packing Hyper6 KHC-V81-U1 Intel Pentium4 and AMD Athlon64 heatsink! Copper is the name of this game, and the Hyper6 certainly uses plenty of it. Mounted to the forged copper base are no less than six individual copper heatpipes which rise up through the center of 27 stacked copper fins to a height of just over 120mm. Levitating 40mm above the base is a 80x80x25mm fan, and its speed control dial can be hooked up to an aluminum 3.5" bay cover for quick fan adjustments.
