Our Forum Member MaReNoStRuM has shared some very interesting details on his on-going extreme cooling project. Building a multi-stage refrigeration computer cooler with 3 cooling heads for 1 CPU and 2 GPUs, he has displayed great innovations and put in huge amount of effort. Enjoy and admire his works here.
OCZ doesn’t stop and doesn’t sleep at all. The company just announced a CPU cooler and it is going back to its old roots. We remember that it used to have the CPU coolers some 12 to 18 months ago, but they didn’t mess with the new designs that much.
The Japanese PC Case maker Soldam, well-known for is ALU based case branded with the name “Windy” is now bankrupt and stop manufacturing, selling of shipping any kind of product they were used to carry…. This is very sad news to the premium chasis aficionados since Soldam was among the best case manufacturer in Japan.
The Enermax guys in Taiwan are back with vengance, this time with their “Galaxy” series, with 850W and 1000W models. We caught a glimpse of this monster in Taiwan’s Guang Hua Electronics District, powering some 4 PC system, including SLI, Crossfire and Dual Core CPUs. Impressive!
750 Watt at 50°C & 90V AC Input – This is the industrial standard in which the operating temperatures are expected to be in the high 40°C and up to 50°C. In addition to temperature, power supplies becomes more efficient as the AC input voltage increase, as a reference, the power outlet in USA is
Feast your eyes on the huge amount of PC Coolers and Power Supplies we covered during Computex 2006!
The voltage regulators toasting on the back of your 7900GT? Take a look at what one of our members Projectile made to cool them! Check out more details in his thread here.
It is very common to find enthusiasts changing out the cooling solutions on their graphics cards to third party alternatives, for the reasons of both performance, and sometimes silence. The Zalman GPU coolers of various models are becoming quite the rage among this group, who are also into overclocking and maximizing the performance of their
Scientists at IBM’s research laboratory here have devised a method of liquid cooling of semiconductors using a direct jet- impingement technique that deploys an array of tiny nozzles and a distributed return architecture. Recent experiments with the immersed jet impingement technique have shown cooling power densities of up to 370W/cm2 with a single phase water
OCZ today announced the launch of the extremely powerful GameXStream Power Supplies—a new line of PSUs for performance-minded gamers. The OCZ GameXStream features active PFC (Power Factor Correction) to effectively regulate input voltage and provide superior operation in a wider range of environments and countries with varying voltages. The high-efficiency 600W and 700W GameXStreams feature
According to LegitReviews, during a recent conversation with Mushkin, the premium Memory Company, it was discovered that Mushkin is just a number of weeks away from launching thier own power supply series. With SLI and CrossFire systems selling at higher than expected volumes there has been a shortage of quality power supply on the market
Researchers at the University of Cambridge have discovered a material that gives a whole new complexion to the term ‘fridge magnet’. When this alloy is placed in a magnetic field, it gets colder. Karl Sandeman and his co-workers think that their material – a blend of cobalt, manganese, silicon and germanium – could help to
After a long hiatus from some consumer cooling products, VR-Zone brings you some insights on a particular heatsink from Scythe, the Scythe Mine. How would the Mine match up to the Scythe Ninja, which took the consumer PC cooling market by storm a few months back? We shall see in this very review.
The manufacturers of the Dremel have added yet another tool to the modders workbench, unveiling a $ 44.99 Dremel Work Station that combines a drill press plus a stationary and flexible tool holder. When configured as a drill press, the Work Station also allows the modder to carefully drill perpendicular holes into a piece of
For all those gamers looking to increase their playing time without any interruptions or pesky meltdowns, Nyko has released a nice, stylish gadget for you. The new XBOX 360 Intercooler 360, is a compact snap-on forced-fan, which is now available for $ 19.99. A few other siimilar devices, including the Pelican PL-3619, also sell for
In pursuit of further overclocks on graphics card memory, one looks into several aspects, such as memory voltages. When it does not help much, we start looking at cooling. RAMsinks are usually used for this purpose, but I was looking for something more cooling… a lot more cooling. I could throw some Dryice on the
After being battered by a trio of watercooling kits we are back at getting wet. This time round we find a kit from Cool-Trek, associated with the largest subglacial Lake in Antarctica. Will it cool that very well? Read on!
Power supplies are getting more and more integral for PCs as power consumption of the average PC increases throughout the years. No longer do people just look at a wattage rating to decide on a power supply. The techies look at other factors such as rail ratings, brand names and whether or not the power
We received three interesting watercooling kits from some of the big names in aftermarket PC cooling and we’re going to torture them with an Intel Prescott 670 and an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ for your reading pleasure. Complete with overclocking tests!
Gone are the days when computer casings are just standard rectangular boxes. Modding the case and fanciful cases have been a growing trend for quite some time now. With the growth of gaming and particularly LAN parties, many gamers put huge amounts of money into the aesthetics of their PCs. The SANSUN Bat Case SN-C001
