NVIDIA made waves in the GPU market when it finally launched Kepler last week, and now EVGA is looking to make a splash by announcing the "immediate availability" of its GeForce GTX 680 Hydro Copper graphics card. Actually, like all GeForce GTX 680 graphics cards, EVGA's Hydro Copper variant is currently out of stock, but we suspect that will change soon. In the meantime, let's take a look at some of the specs. The main attraction here is the pre-installed Hydro Copper waterblock, which you can also order separately for $160 direct from EVGA. This is a full-cover end-to-end waterblock with a chrome... Read more...
A high-five is in order for Corsair for more than doubling the warranty period on its Hydra Series H60 CPU cooler from two years to five years, ensuring that there's at least one component you won't have to worry about for the life of your system (unless you keep your systems for more than five years, in which, it's time to upgrade, playa!). And don't go pounding sand if you already purchased an H60 cooler, the extended warranty applies to you, too. "The new, longer warranty reflects the care that Corsair has taken with design and construction of the H60, as well as the choice of high-quality materials,"... Read more...
The EVGA GTX 580 FTW Hydro Copper 2 is made for a specific type of enthusiast. It comes with a custom, pre-installed water block that eliminates two of the biggest concerns associated with high end graphics cards: heat and noise. When interconnected to a liquid cooling loop, the HC2 makes no sound and operates at relatively frigid temperatures. The lower-temp operating conditions inherently lead to increased overclocking ability and the performance edge that goes along with it... EVGA GTX 580 FTW Hydro Copper 2 Review... Read more...

Through a project known as Aquasar, IBM researchers are working on new technologies that could drastically reduce the power consumption and carbon footprint of data centers. Aquasar involves a water-cooled supercomputer that uses 40% less energy than comparable systems that use today's air-conditioned methods.In addition to saving energy, Aquasar takes the waste heat it pulls from servers and uses the heat to help warm nearby offices. By combining these energy savings, a company's carbon footprint can be reduced by as much as 85%. The Aquasar project began one year ago as part of IBM's First-Of-A-Kind... Read more...

Water cooling for high-end PCs is, in theory, a terrific idea. Using water to cool vital system components like your CPU and GPU allow for cooler temperatures, lower noise levels, longer component life spans and / or enhanced overclockability. Water is simply a more efficient medium for transferring heat compared to traditional metal-based, airflow cooled heatsinks. With CPU and GPU power levels increasing, it seemingly appeared as if the industry was bracing for a transition to water cooling in late 2005 / early 2006, as if the technology would be necessary in order to keep up the clock speed...

Corsair's new external water cooling kit, the Nautlius 500, gets high marks for decent performance at a low price. The folks over at sudhian.com compare the Nautlius 500 to Silverstone's NT03 and NT06 coolers, and for $149 it does a decent job. "This time around Corsair is placing greater emphasis on simplicity and easy installation. The new Nautilus 500 promises to be an easy to install system that is universally compatible with all processors. Corsair also promises a low price too. The big question is whether the Nautilus 500 can cool... Read more...
Using water to cool the components in a PC was once considered and outlandish idea, and maybe even a little crazy. We all know what happens when water gets spilled onto something electronic, so why intentionally pump it into a system? Well, the short answer to that question is that water is far more effective at absorbing and removing heat than air. But the problem with using water is that it must be confined in a closed loop, like it is in most automobiles, and it cannot make direct contact with any exposed circuitry that has an electric current running through it. This wasn't an insurmountable... Read more...
Watercooling isn't cheap, but the prices have become fairly reasonable over the years. If you're still running on air, but find yourself looking for something a little better, XSPC's new X20 is aiming to be a solid choice. It's a small system, but as Madshrimps reports, it gets the job done. "XSPC is fairly new to the water cooling world. Their first water cooling kit has been knighted X20. The kit is both compact and compatible with most motherboard sockets. In this respect X20 may be the ideal entry level kit."... Read more...
