Remember the WaterChill cooler brand from Asetek? It's back! The line may have vanished in recent years, but at the CeBIT trade show in Germany, Asetek has re-released it. We're guessing that hardware overclocking fans just missed the range of products, and now an ultra-extreme liquid CPU cooler is being launched in the WaterChill line. It's the WaterChill 2011C, and highlights include a low profile pump with third-generation coldplate technology and advanced liquid temperature fan control, coupled with a massive 240mm x 120mm radiator and four 120mm PWM fans. The 2011C also includes the company’s... 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...

With today's ever advancing PC technology, it seems that two things ultimately remain unchanged; an increase in performance usually means an escalation in heat output.  Currently, air cooling techniques can still keep most computer hardware operating at reasonable temperatures, but those who decide to squeeze every ounce of performance from their systems will see, and potentially hear, the limitations of these methods. With some systems starting to rival the noise levels of the household vacuum, computer enthusiasts are always on the hunt for alternative cooling solutions that may quiet...

Good evening HotHardware fans!  How have you all been?  I feel like I haven't done a news post in ages, but thanks to Matt's sustained efforts these past couple of weeks, it looks like my services weren't needed! He's been doing a heck of job, hasn't he folks?  Don't think I won't be around, however.  If I'm not doing news, I'm working on an article, or posting some miscellaneous information in my new blog! Make sure you check it out when you get a chance.  For now though, it's time for a late-night sampling of hardware news...  Thermaltake Silent PurePower - TWV480... Read more...
Hello all!  How is every one doing today?  I hope you're all doing well!  I'm still in a fog trying to comprehend some of this theories put forth by Stephen Hawking and his contemporaries in the special / interview that aired on the Science Channel last night.  I love hearing theories about quantum mechanics and the birth of the universe.  Especially since we really know very little about our origins.  Consider that fact that we have just now detected two new moons on Saturn and a new gas on Jupiter.  If we're still finding things in our own solar system, how...

Good Evening Folks! Just in case you missed it, we've just posted a review of Asetek's new Antarctica WaterChill water cooling kit. We ran the WaterChill with its fans operating in both 12V (high-performance) and 7V (low-noise) modes, and compared its performance to Intel's stock P4 cooler and Thermalright's excellent SLK948U throughout. We know Asetek's Vapochill does a great job of cooling a CPU, but how does the WaterChill perform? Click here to find out!... Read more...
  Water cooling is becoming increasingly more popular amongst hardcore overclockers.  Not only does water cooling provide the utmost in cooling potential, short of refrigeration, but it can also quiet things down significantly.  With today's processors producing upwards of 100 Watts of heat energy, cooling them down has becomes a difficult task.  Demand for high-performance cooling solutions has increased greatly, and certain so-called "extreme" cooling solutions are now becoming more mainstream.  Even your "average Joe" in the computer world is looking...
