Once again, Thermalright has stepped up to take that challenge and introduced the HR-01-775*. HR-01-775 is a passive tower cooler that utilizes the fan that is already installed in your computer. It works side by side with the fan duct system developed exclusively by Thermalright. Basically, the fan duct connects the HR-01 to the 120mm
With overclocking becoming a commonplace, we find thermal solutions to increase in variety and effectiveness. Whilst watercooling might become a practical thermal management solution in the future, forced-air cooling remains the dominant method of cooling microprocessors of today. We take a look at 2 CPU Coolers from Titan, the Vanessa sisters…
Swiftech™ today announced the release of the MCW30 chipset cooler, a low flow restriction water-block for AMD® and Intel® compatible motherboards. “The MCW30 water-block was designed with maximum compatibility in mind” said Gabriel Rouchon, Swiftech’s Chairman. Mr. Rouchon also added “We wanted this product not only to be compatible with as many popular PC platforms
MicroCool Systems is known mainly for their chipset cooling solutions. Although the cooling solutions they have offered up until this point has been limited to the chipset area, they have taken the chance of crossing over to the CPU cooling when they saw the chance to. The low heat output of the Pentium Ms give
ARCTIC COOLING launches new series of Graphic card coolers named Accelero (X1 for NVDIA 6800/ 7800 Series and X2 for ATI X1800/ X1900 Series). Vibrations caused by the rotating fan are absorbed by a patented vibration muffler. Complex airflow simulations were conducted during development of the fan, the results were incredible cooling performance at extremely
It’s been a while since we have taken a look at a Silverstone power supply. Some time ago we checked out the first SLI certified power supply, the Zeus ST65ZF. Although there has not been any new addition to Silverstone top range power supply since then, there is a new addition to the family of
Swiftech™ today announced the release of the Patent Pending APOGEE water-block and revamping of its entire line of CPU Liquid Cooling kits. The Apogee water-block is a universal CPU cooling solution that reaches “exotic” performance levels without the flow restrictions usually associated with such high-end devices. As a result, it yields substantial performance gains in
There’s a new casing arrival here in Singapore this week. The new GT Tech case that’s here in Singapore, is essentially a Lian Li clone. This new case has the looks and feel of the popular value PC7 case from Lian Li. However, this new case comes with 2 12cm Blue LED fan. Priced at
Topower, although a very trusted power supply brand name in the server market, is not as popular in the home-user market. Perhaps it is just the way the company, which has branched out into chasis and cooler solutions, markets its line of power supplies. Today, we take a look at the Topower EP-500w, a power
For those of you who have a hot running Geforce 7800 GTX card, yet still want to overclock more? Want something quiet and cheap? Here’s a cheap way to cool a reference designed Geforce 7800 GTX. By using an Intel stock fan found in a 3.0E LGA package, we were able to get an improvement
Another low profile power supply silently enters the Singapore market. Today we take a look at the fresh new SevenTeam ST-550EAG 550w Power Supply. Does it pack a punch?? Read on to find out!
Lian Li has always been at the forefront in the casing industry. In conjunction with Lian Li’s 20th anniversary, the PC-777 was introduced and VR-Zone took a close look at this special anniversary model with another new case called the PC-767.
