Over the last few years, we've seen an increasing number of liquid coolers positioned as high-end alternatives to traditional heatsink+fan combinations. This has been particularly true in the boutique market, where a number of manufacturers now offer liquid coolers in one form or another. Corsair has a full line of liquid coolers; we've reviewed the company's H80 and H100 here and compared them to Intel's own liquid cooling solution as well as an ultra-high end model Maingear sent over. This last entry is specifically designed for integration into the company's systems rather than as an aftermarket... Read more...
Over the last few years, we've seen an increasing number of liquid coolers positioned as high-end alternatives to traditional heatsink+fan combinations. This has been particularly true in the boutique market, where a number of manufacturers now offer liquid coolers in one form or another. The kits we're looking at today are a far cry from the water coolers enthusiasts have been building for years. DIY water coolers typically involve separate reservoirs and external pumps. The systems we've tested contain significantly less fluid and use small pumps directly integrated into the cooling block. Integrated... Read more...
Scientists have theorized that there might be frozen water on the moon for decades—while water vapor quickly boils away on the moon's surface, frozen water was predicted to exist inside permanently shadowed polar craters as far back as the 1960s. Evidence has mounted for the existence of water in the last 10 years, but new findings from NASA confirm the presence of a whole lot of H2O. Using data from a NASA radar that flew aboard India's Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, scientists have detected ice deposits near the moon's north pole. NASA's Mini-SAR instrument, a lightweight, synthetic aperture radar,... Read more...

Danger Den just sent word that their Radeon HD 5870 water block is ready and about to ship--the official press release is posted below. Perhaps more interesting than the news about the 5870 water block, however, is the little detail Danger Den mentions at the end of the release. It looks like the dual-GPU powered Radeon HD 5870 X2 (if that is what it will officially be named) design is complete and samples are out in the wild. DD-5870 Block for the ATI 5870 VGA Card Danger Den continues to extend their broad line of full coverage video card blocks with the new ATI 5870 water block. The DD-5870... Read more...

7E+09. At a glance, that figure probably doesn't mean much to you, but believe it or not, that's the current population of this place we call Earth. As has been made abundantly clear through the most recent worldwide recession, we're facing challenging, exciting times as a people. Today, more individuals reside in cities and vast urban areas than in rural communities, providing an even greater need for companies and citizens alike to hunker down and focus on efficiencies when dealing with public transportation, the distribution of natural resources and resource consumption.While it's companies...

Water-cooling has seen greater mainstream acceptance in recent years. As a result, manufacturers have acknowledged the trend and expanded their product lineups to include these more exotic parts. But what's the big draw for videocards, motherboards, or memory pre-installed with liquid cooling options? Simply put, increased cooling potential nets higher overclocking headroom which translates into higher, stable operating frequencies and ultimately, more performance. But in this particular case, performance is anchored by lower component temperatures and a quieter computing environment. Will consumers... Read more...

Even in the age of green computing and lower power 45nm silicon manufacturing technologies, thermal management, specifically heat mitigation, continues to be a challenge .   Maybe you're a dyed-in-the-wool overclocker or perhaps a silent computing buff that wants things whisper-quiet. Then again, even the average "Joe Sixpack" could probably appreciate how unobtrusive a computer can be and that, as savvy HH readers know, can only be achieved through robust, elegant cooling solutions.  In that vein and out of the Kingdom of Denmark comes Danamics with...

We've posted a myriad of information and preliminary benchmarks regarding Intel's upcoming extreme Octa-Core SkullTrail platform over the last few months, since attending the Intel Developers Forum this past September.  In their booth at the Consumer Electronics Show, however, Intel disclosed a few more juicy details and showed off a couple of SkullTrail systems we thought you'd like to see.     Intel SkullTrail @ 4GHz Air and Water Cooled The system on the left is a custom Alienware rig based on the Skulltrail platform that features a liquid-cooling system and a pair...

For reasons unknown, a good portion of the enthusiast market still thinks that memory cooling is a fruitless effort. Many high-end users still believe that memory chips run plenty cool, and that putting heat spreaders and heatsinks on them is a superficial effort at best, and that they don't provide any major benefits. The fact that nearly all high-end memory module and graphics card memory manufacturers use some sort of additional cooling doesn't seem to matter. For a long time, I was a member of this camp as well. The first memory modules with heat-spreaders showed themselves in... Read more...
When he was a first year student at the MIT Media Labs, Paulo Blikstein built a water-based device that could handle two Boolean operations, AND and XOR.  And after making a few hardware revisions, ended up building a 4-bit adder out of some strategically cut acrylic and rubber tubing. "The idea of the project was to build a device that could do computation without electrons (well, not considering the electrons in water itself). Water was a interesting choice, in fact, Fluidics is a very important field of study that is widely used in aerospace... Read more...
