Heat issues have always been a headache for a system designer and thermal solutions have always been based on adding new components to cool the already hot system. From better heat sinks to auxiliary fans, the everyday computer hardware enthusiasts never fail to explore new solutions to cool their favourite rigs. Now with the Thermally Advantaged Chassis, passive cooling comes in. Without having to invest heftly in a set of top-end cooling solution, one can now own a top-end system without having to worry about it breaking down after a few hours of usage.

If you are getting a new system based on the Intel Pentium 4 with 1MB L2 Cache processor, remember to invest in a Thermally Advantaged Chassis.

Be safe on the fastlane …..

A little lastnote, the Thermally Advantaged Chassis that VR-Zone received was from Inwin (TAC Version 1.1).

The Inwin Thermally Advantaged Chassis is an “Intel-Only” chassis. I wonder if it is the same for the rest of the Thermally Advantaged Chassis. All buyers must be forewarn that the motherboard connectors are built for Intel-based motherboards only.
