VapoChill LightSpeed[AC], NVIDIA SLI, and more!
Hey folks, it's been a day of trojan and spyware fighting, and all that's left is the news and a good 8 hours of sleep. For your reading pleasure tonight, we have reviews for the asetek VapoChill LightSpeed, ASUS Extreme N600GT PCI-E, Hiper Type R Black & Silver Label 480W PSU, and a look at NVIDIA's SLI. Good night :)
