Kosta Andreadis | Feb 20, 2024 10:34 PM CST

German hardware maker be quiet! has announced two new high-end and versatile PC cases, the new Dark Base Pro 901 White and Dark Base 701 White. Both cases feature support for inverted layouts (a rarity), have been designed for maximum airflow and usability, and feature a stylish look with subtle ARGB lighting. Although they should probably be called 'White Base' cases, it's great to see be quiet!'s traditionally stealthy cases in bright all-white.

The new prototype Lian Li SUP-01 is a new case that experiments with a front GPU layout, while the new AIO cooler is the GALAHAD II LCD SHIFT that the company minimizes the tubing with, while a new EDGE Series PSU is a new form factory power supply that solves cable access in dual chamber cases.

Lian Li also unveiled its new DK-07 standing desk with a glass top covering the component chamber, surrounded by aluminum panels, and a built-in 30-inch LG transparent OLED display as a secondary monitor without obscuring the system. It looks beautiful, and I'd love to see what it'd be like in the flesh.

Some of the staff store members said that they recommend pre-ordering the new Seasonic VERTEX SAKURA Edition power supply, as it will be in small quantities given it's a limited edition product. We don't know about availability in other markets just yet, but we should expect an announcement (and small quantities) soon.

Redditor passively cools GeForce RTX 3080 with 10 tower heatsinks, looks incredible

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 30, 2024 6:30 PM CST

This is something you don't see every day: a passively-cooled GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card with 10 x tower heatsinks taking care of cooling the graphics card.

Redditor "Everynametaken9" has modified his NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition graphics card, where he wanted to passively cool the GPU in the most monstrous way. In this journey, the Redditor used absolutely massive amounts of metal to keep it cool, and it looks insane.

Everynametaken9 was inspired by the growing "passive cooling" wave, experimenting with 10 different cooling heatsinks on the GPU, testing the thermal dissipation with the goal of "zero noise". There were some heavy DIY modifications installed, including a massive copper heatsink with gigantic dimensions: 2" x 3" x 12" -- yeah, the heatsink is 12 inches long! -- and then all of the 10 x CPU heatsinks strapped to the RTX 3080 Founders Edition.
