It looks like the guys over at Arctic Cooling have come up with a new passive cooling solution for some of the beefier graphics cards out on the market right now. Its always great to see new innovations in cooling whether it be for processors, graphics cards, or what ever, especially if it can help keep my rig from sounding like a Boeing 747 during take-off. Take a look at what The Inquirer has to say about the new Accelero S1. If you like quiet high-end cooling systems, Arctic has something for you. These guys are long time in the industry and have been developing coolers for HIS and PowerColor cards. Now the firm has its attentions to high-end cards. The Accelero S1 sports four... Read more...
Samsung electronics has announced the first double-sided LCD screen that is able to show a different image on each side. Akihabara news has the lowdown. The breakthrough LCD product makes use of Samsung's new double-gate, thin-film transistor (TFT) architecture. TFT gates are electronic components that convert the necessary voltage at the pixel level, which controls the liquid crystal alignment needed to reproduce on-screen images. Samsung's new double-sided LCD has two gates that operate each pixel instead of one, so the screen on the front can display different images than the one on the back. The double-sided display makes use of Samsung's proprietary Amorphous Silicon Gate (ASG) technology,... Read more...
Good cooling is pretty much an art form.  It takes exotic mechanical and aero-thermal engineering to design a cooler with maximum heat transfer and a quiet acoustic signature.  3DGameMan has a look at a universal CoolerMaster HSF that gets the job done pretty and looks good doing it... "The Cooler Master Eclipse cooler has a very interesting first impression. With a snail shaped profile and claw like heat pipes, this cooler demands your attention. You will notice that it has a plastic hood that has a large opening at the top, we will get to that later. " Demands your attention... come on now.  The Pats rolling on the Texans, now that demands my attention - that and this cold... Read more...

Claiming up to twice the performance of current standard CPU coolers, IBM has given us a glimpse of their latest cooling technology. The technology concerns the layer of thermally conductive paste between the chip and the heatsink. Taking inspiration from nature, IBM has developed a unique surface design with a series of branched channels on its surface, in order to equally disperse the thermal paste when pressure is applied. As well as this approach, IBM is also developing another new technique called "direct jet impingement", which is a new type of water cooling system. "The team has demonstrated cooling power densities of up to... Read more...

There have always been benchmarks you watch to gauge the march of technology --Processor speed, number of channels available on cable, maximum screen size, etc. I must have fallen asleep for ten minutes, because they're putting 10 megapixel cameras into phones now. Camera Phone Plaza has pictures of the little wonders: "Samsung made a press release today in which announced the world's first super camera phone, the Samsung SCH-B600. The handset features an amazing 10 megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom, 5x digital zoom and a flash unit. The SCH-B600 also has a LED autofocus that automatically determines the distance and utilizes the appropriate focus setting." The camera phones are exactly... Read more...

SeattlePI has a story on-line that talks about a Ukrainian-born professor from the University of Washington that's been working a method to cool computer chips using an ionic wind. It may sound like something out of Star Trek, but ionic winds are relatively easy to generate, and have been put to use in a number of different things from basic "lifters" to the Ionic Breeze air filtration units you see offered on TV. If incorporated into the design of future processors, this technology could help cool a chip from the inside out. "A corona discharge is basically the product of some seriously electrified (or more accurately, "ionized") air molecules, also known as a plasma. St. Elmo'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 increases of the past year. However, a new industry wide focus on performance-per-watt has given air... Read more...
Brent from [H] has taken a look at one of the few factory-overclocked Radeon X1900 XTX cards currently available, the liquid cooled Sappire Toxic Radeon X1900 XTX. We took a look at this card back in April when Sapphire was still calling it the "Blizzard".  We ended up being impressed by the card and gave it an Editor's Choice award. It looks like all these months later, the crew at [H] were equally impressed. "We are glad Sapphire is stepping out of the mainstream and giving end users another option with high-end graphics. This is the first factory overclocked Radeon X1900 XTX GPU based video card we have seen. This is also the first fully pre-assembled self-contained liquid... Read more...
If you've jumped on the Socket AM2 bandwagon and are looking to upgrade from AMD's stock CPU cooler, the crew at [H]Enthusiast have a round-up posted today that will be of interest. They take a look at a handful of AM2 compatible coolers from Scythe to Zalman, and two unit stood out from the rest. "So you've got a new AM2 based machine and you want to keep it cool, but you don't know what heatsink to use? We didn't either, so we tested seven coolers from six different companies to find out. Rather than just show you a graph with a bunch of temperatures we also take into account ease of installation, perceived noise levels and price. This way you can make an informed decision about which... Read more...
