A Walk About in SLS (11-6-2005)
For those who have near unlimited amount of money to spend on a great gaming
system, we spotting something just for you. Over at Cybermind, we found a
pair of MSI NX 6800Ultra 512MB. Based on the currently fastest Nvidia
6800Ultra 512MB, and if operated in a pair, in SLi mode, you would get the
fastest 3D performance in game you could get with money. Priced at $ 1559
each, this is something really high end. For more about this pair of godly
where it was tested and benchmarked.
The really really large box for this great card. It’s so large that most
motherboard packaging are dwarfed…
The box flipped open, with a little window showing the card. Also, in this
package, 3 games are included.
Next, over at ATF Multimedia, we spotted some really high end air
cooling solutions. The Gigabyte G-Power family of CPU heatsinks. This
aluminum heatsink, resembles certain Thermalright heatsinks, but it comes with a
pretty LED fan. Comes in 2 versions, one with a controllable fan (the Pro
version) and the other with (BL version). Priced at $ 95 and
$ 79 respectively, it’s a sweet price to pay for such high end solutions.
The 2 versions of the G-power. As you can see, the Pro package has a knob for
RPM control for the fan.
The heatsink itself, with a large pretty blue fan.
The heatsink from another angle. With 4 heatpipes connected to the base of
the heatsink, to allow heat to be transfered to the high density fins to be
cooled by the fan.
A close up of the heatpipes.
The base of the heatsink. While the heatsink is still not very bumpy, visible
machine marks are still there.
For the case modders – Blue LED for the fan!
