What’s faster than Visiontek’s new Radeon R9 290? Not the 290X, according to the graphics card maker. VisionTek used CES to formally launch the CryoVenom, a liquid-cooled R9 290 that can be user-overclocked for a speed boost of (according to VisionTek), up to 24%. The card’s one-year warranty covers the overclocking, provided you stay within the speeds VisionTek rates it for, of course. VisionTek says its CryoVenom R9 290, which retails for $550, has a GPU speed of 1175MHz and memory speed of 1450MHz, all while keeping temps low (125 degrees Fahrenheit in VistionTek’s tests)....

The Consumer Electronics Show is over, but the product announcements keep rolling in. Among them is Corsair's introduction of a pair of big and burly Hydro Series liquid CPU coolers, the dual-fan H110 and single-fan H90, both with spacious radiators. "Many PC enthusiasts choose liquid cooling for its extreme cooling efficiency and quiet operation," said Thi La, Senior VP and GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. "To take liquid cooling the next level, we super-sized the Hydro Series H110 and H90, providing users our best cooling-to-noise ratio ever." The H110 rocks a double-length... Read more...
Corsair announced the Hydro Series H100i and H80i liquid CPU coolers. These new coolers are redesigned versions of the popular H100 and H80 coolers. The new H100i and H80i models are designed to provide better cooling, quieter operation, easier installation, and Corsair Link digital control. The Hydro Series H100i and H80i utilize new copper cold plates that are more efficient, improved manifolds, optimized fan designs, and larger diameter tubing to deliver better cooling than previous generations. The Hydro Series H100i employs a 240mm radiator while the Hydro Series H80i uses a double-thick 120mm... Read more...
Corsair announced a new version of its Hydro Series H60 liquid CPU cooler as well as the new Hydro Series H55 liquid CPU cooler. The Hydro Series H60 features a new cold plate and manifold design. It also uses larger diameter tubing to increase the coolant flow rate. This cooler makes use of new composite rubber tubing, thereby providing for easier installation while still retaining low evaporation rates. The Hydro Series H60 also features a new magnetic mounting bracket that is designed to make it easy to select the correct motherboard socket format. The new H60 comes with a 120mm fan based on...

A few months back, we examined the performance of four liquid coolers for the Sandy Bridge-E socket LGA 2011 platform: Corsair's H80 and H100, Maingear's Epic 180, and Intel's own reference cooler. Liquid coolers are popular with high-end OEMs and some enthusiasts, but they aren't cheap -- and there's a certain group of enthusiasts who aren't comfortable with flowing liquid in their systems. Recently, we spoke with the team at Noctua, who offered to send us one of its high-end air coolers for comparison. We've been curious about the company since it came across our radar with its upgrade offer... Read more...

You know a computer case means business when it warrants naming an entire PC line after it, and that's what you have with Maingear's SHIFT chassis. Designed in conjunction with Silverstone, the SHIFT computer case is the centerpiece of not one, but two full blown system configurations featured at Maingear, including the "The SHIFT" (for consumers/enthusiasts) and "The Quantum SHIFT" (workstation). But what if you're not in the market for a brand new system and just want the case? Too bad, so sad, up until now. Maingear tells us there's been so much interest in the standalone chassis that they've... Read more...
Corsair continues its wet and wild run into the world of liquid CPU cooling with the introduction of its new Hydro Series H40 and H70 CORE coolers. Both are supposedly easy to install and require zero maintenance, two big advantages self-contained liquid coolers have over the roll-your-own variety. Sitting on the entry-level end is the H40. This closed-loop cooler supports most modern AMD and Intel sockets (AMD AM2, AM3, and FM1; Intel LGA 1155, 1156, 1366, 2011, and 775). Both the cold plate and radiator are made of aluminum, and a 120mm fan helps keep things chilly. For those who need a little... Read more...
PNY today announced it's new all-in-one Liquid Coold Graphics series. Kicking off the new series are a pair of XLR8 GeForce GTX 580 videocards, both of which sport an integrated liquid cooling solution from Asetek that's stupid-simple to install in your case. What separates the two cards is that one of them comes with an additional CPU block. "Designed to increase performance while reducing noise and temperature, PNY’s Liquid Cooled Graphics offers the fastest factory-overclocked card currently on the market at 857 MHz," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, PC components for PNY....

The EVGA Hydro Copper FTW GTX 480 looks to eliminate two of the biggest concerns regarding NVIDIA's GF100, heat and noise. Once the custom waterblock from Swiftech affixed to the EVGA Hydro Copper FTW GTX 480 is added to an existing liquid cooling loop, this videocard runs dead silent and operates at much lower temperatures than its air cooled counterparts. As an added bonus, it comes overclocked right out of the box too, and with further tweaking we expect it to hit even higher levels of performance. Read on as we add this baby to our watercooling loop to see how well it performs in stock form... Read more...
