Anyone who's opened a PC before knows it's quite common to find dust bunnies inside, even though dust and electronics don't exactly form a great duo. In an effort to help reduce the dust inside of one's case, Lian-Li is equipping all of its cases with easy-to-remove twist motion air filters. These washable air filters work with Lian Li and other manufacturers' 120mm and 140mm fans. The PT-AF12-3B and PT-AF14-3B washable air filters have been shipping on Lian Li cases since September, but you can also order them separately as a spare part. Announcing PT-AF12-3B and PT-AF14-3B Washable Air Filters... Read more...

It's not quite as sophisticated or complex as some of the liquid cooling options we've seen lately, but there's still a monster market out there for standard case fans. NZXT knows a thing or two about the hardcore gaming PC sect, and they're introducing this week a new FS-200 LED fan lineup to provide powerful gusts with no noise. And in order to make modders happy, these are available with green, blue or red LED lighting. Each FS-200 Silent LED Fan contains their own controller, but also comes packaged with a splitter allowing the Phantom’s LED switch to support two fans simultaneously.... Read more...
If you live in the northern part of the U.S., nature is doing the bulk of the cooling these days. But what about inside of your PC case? Unless you're funneling snow into there (safely, if that's even possible), the area in and around your CPU/GPU is probably still toasty. If you've been looking to overclock, but need some better cooling options before diving in, Asetek has exactly what you need. The company is today introducing new 92mm liquid CPU coolers, described as such. The 545LC is a single exhaust port, single-CPU cooler that supports high performance gaming PCs and workstations, utilizing... Read more...
Dyson. It's a name generally linked to wild (and wildly expensive) vacuum cleaners, but today the company is doing something a little different. Er, a lot different. The only other diversion for Dyson in recent memory from its core product group was the Airblade, a commercial hand dryer that blasted water from your hands without requiring your to hit any buttons or touch any germ-infested towel dispensers. It's that same wind-blowing idea that's passed along to the firm's first "bladeless fan," the Air Multiplier.Without a doubt, this is the most high-tech fan the world has ever seen, though it'll...

I just had an unexpected package arrive at the door. In it was one of Kingston's brand new HyperX memory cooling fans.Like most other memory coolers, the HyperX Fan mounts to the retention clips on either side of the RAM slots on a motherboard. It has two blue-lighted, 60mm fans that blow air down on the DIMMs that reside in the slots below.       Kingston's HyperX Fan   The entire assembly is very light-weight and according to Kingston the fans generate little noise--somewhere in the neighborhood of 28db (maximum). Anyway, we thought you'd like to check out some pics of... Read more...
It's no secret that most radio talk shows have a slight delay before a caller's audio reaches the air. The obvious reason: to make sure no "f-bombs" reach the sensitive ears of the public --- or the FCC. Well, Microsoft has been awarded a patent that might eliminate the need for that delay. The patent, 7437290, is for "Automatic censorship of audio data for broadcast" was first filed in 2004. Here's how it's described: An input audio data stream comprising speech is processed by an automatic censoring filter in either a real-time mode, or a batch mode, producing censored speech that has been altered...

If you're like us here at HotHardware, you use the Internet for everything. But according to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, the one thing we're not doing much is letting the Internet make up our minds about what we want to buy. Those decisions seem to be more heavily and directly influenced by offline channels like "friends and sales personnel." Only about 10 percent of real estate and cell phone buyers and 7 percent of music purchasers credit the Internet with having a major impact on their decision. And only a small portion — 22 percent of the music buyers and 12 percent of cell... Read more...

Apple Computer's "low end" below $800.00 desktop computer, the Mac Mini, appears to have died alone and unloved. At least according to AppleInsider, who declared it dead yesterday. And according to AppleInsider,  it's only dead because Apple never really cared about an inexpensive line of computers in the first place. Since then, the Mac mini has been treated to a rather mundane life-cycle. It has seen just four updates since inception, one of which was so insignificant in Apple's own eyes that the company didn't even bother to draft a press release. Even now, the current minis' 1.66GHz and 1.83GHz... Read more...
