Alphacool Cape KC42-X2 water block, Abit Lawsuit, and more!
Good evening everyone, it's that time again. I'll be eating supper in a minute, but first, I'm here to bring you articles about MSI's NX6600GT-TD128E, Corsair XMS2, and a Class Action Lawsuit against Abit... interesting stuff. Well folks, enjoy!
"The Class Representative alleges in this Action that Abit Computer (USA) Corporation ("Abit") manufactured, marketed, and sold select models of its motherboards containing an allegedly defective component, namely, a capacitor, which was allegedly prone to failure. Abit has denied and continues to deny these allegations and has asserted a number of affirmative defenses."
"As a single board in isolation, MSI's 6600 GT makes a great case for itself. A fantastic software bundle, component video out for use with HDTV sets in the main, and quiet cooler round off a great product that I could only think to improve with the inclusion of dual DVI ports instead of analogue VGA and DVI, which other 6600 GT vendors are happy to specify."
"PC Perspective has two quick image previews online this morning. One is of the new nF4 SLI powered Abit WN-2S+ motherboard that is a dual Opteron platform that also supports SLI graphics cards. The second is of the new DFI nF4 SLI chipset motherboard that marks the first 2nd-tier manufacturer to enter the SLI market."
"With the memory running in dual channel configuration and with the voltage set at 2.0v, we were able to run the Corsair TWIN2X1024-5400C4PRO DDR2 rock solid to an amazing 760MHz DDR2 at its rated latency of CAS 4-4-4-12 and up to an incredible 838MHz DDR2 at CAS 5-5-5-12!"
"Today we evaluate Alphacool´s CAPE KC42-X2, a cylindrical shaped water block with a unique internal design, the CAPE can rotate 360 degrees within its mounting plate making installation affable!"
