Corsair's new external water cooling kit, the Nautlius 500, gets high marks for decent performance at a low price. The folks over at sudhian.com compare the Nautlius 500 to Silverstone's NT03 and NT06 coolers, and for $149 it does a decent job. "This time around Corsair is placing greater emphasis on simplicity and easy installation. The new Nautilus 500 promises to be an easy to install system that is universally compatible with all processors. Corsair also promises a low price too. The big question is whether the Nautilus 500 can cool processors adequately without making the install too complex."... Read more...
Continuing with the coverage of Computex 2006, we have some more great pictures of the event thanks to PC Perspective. One eye catching piece of hardware is Thermaltake's monster case which can house two whole computers. As if that wasn't enough, the case also comes with a touch-screen LCD monitor which can be connected to one of the systems inside the case. "PC Perspective has published an article this morning that takes a look at what new cases, cooling and power products were on display from vendors like Thermaltake, Cooler Master and Silverstone. There are more than a few very unique system designs and products on display... Read more...
We haven't posted any links to digital camera reviews for some time, but according to Bytesector, Nikon's Coolpix L3 5MP deserves some attention. The suggested MSRP for the camera is around $270, which makes it a great buy for someone who's looking for a decent camera that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. "Nikon's L series got a big push this year with three new models and offers the Coolpix L3 as the only new 5 megapixel camera for 2006. The L3 provides some of Nikon's reliable features to help you take better pictures. But have they addressed the fidgety flash we have experienced here at Bytesector all too often?"... Read more...
With today's super-fast, power hungry processors and multi-GPU rigs, power supplies are getting a lot more attention than they used to.  DriverHeaven has taken a look new 550W PSU from the folks at Cooler Master, and they ended up liking it enough to give it an award. "To follow up on the success of the Real Power 450W PSU, Cooler Master has released the new Real Power 550W SLI. It complies with both the Intel standard ATX 12V V 2.01 and SSI standard EPS 12V V2.1. They recommend the Real Power 550W as a viable solution for high end workstations and gaming rigs that contain those power hungry dual graphic card solutions based on SLI... Read more...
The uniqueness of these CPU Coolers makes the article. They're not kidding when they say "wild", especially when it comes to the silent coolers. Odd looks aside, some of them manage to cool pretty well. "With the fans finally spinning down, we can see that through mounting difficulties, the monstrous heatsinks, predictably, came out on top. While there are no clear cut recommendations to be made today, we're hoping that this review will help clear up any questions and doubts you might have had, and help you on your way to picking out one of the three sinks we see here. Thermaltake has a lot of products to choose from and these are... Read more...
As if Gigabyte's 3D Aurora case wasn't good enough, Gigabyte also has a stylish water cooling system to go with it. While the 3D Galaxy Liquid Cooler probably isn't the best performing water cooling solution you can buy, it still gets the job done of keeping your hardware cool, and looks great when attached to the 3D Aurora. "There are many liquid cooling solutions out there to choose from, the good things about the 3D Galaxy are it's really good looks, its ergonomic design and its price. As far as being the best cooling solution out there, no it's not that, but it does provide adequate performance for moderate overclocking and in the role of... Read more...
THERMALRIGHT RELEASES HR-05 NORTH BRIDGE COOLER As technologies get more advanced each day we see faster CPUs, motherboards, VGA cards, and etc. Unfortunately all of that translates into generating more heat inside our computers. Many of us forget that one of those heat sources also comes from the North Bridge chipset. Like the CPU coolers, the North Bridge coolers can also be passively cooled OR actively cooled. Now, with the heatpipe technology existing in just about every CPU cooler, we applied that same technology to our new NB cooler, the HR-05 and allowing you to make the choice to go either cooling passively or actively. Basically, the HR-05 has the same design as our HR-01 CPU cooler... Read more...
The Praetorian 730 is a sweet case that includes alot of ventilation upgrades that were problems associated with the popular Wave Master series. Read on to see what PCPer.com thought about this uniquely designed alumnium case from Cooler Master.The Cooler Master Praetorian 730 incorporates an all aluminum chassis fitted with an open mesh front panel and sculptured aluminum front door. One of the original Wave Master's weaknesses was poor airflow into the chassis thru the front panel. The new Praetorian 730 door design fixes that problem and provides for much better airflow. There is also better clearance behind the closed door for accessory bay devices like fan speed controllers that have knobs... Read more...
Arctic Cooling, known for many decent coolers including their VGA Silencer series, is back with a new offering. This time they're covering the CPU Market with the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro, but does it live up to AC's quality reputation? "Today, I am going to look at a fairly new CPU cooler from Arctic Cooling named the Freezer 64 Pro. This is a cooler designed to fit on AMD Athlon 64 CPUs (Socket 754/939/940). Arctic Cooling does also make a version that mounts on Intel systems called the Freezer 7 Pro for the Intel Socket 775."... Read more...
Using water to cool the components in a PC was once considered and outlandish idea, and maybe even a little crazy. We all know what happens when water gets spilled onto something electronic, so why intentionally pump it into a system? Well, the short answer to that question is that water is far more effective at absorbing and removing heat than air. But the problem with using water is that it must be confined in a closed loop, like it is in most automobiles, and it cannot make direct contact with any exposed circuitry that has an electric current running through it. This wasn't an insurmountable problem by any means, though. Once the idea of using water to cool a desktop PC caught on, hardcore... Read more...
Air cooling at it's best? That's a pretty bold statement to make, but as ExtremeMHz reports, the AeroCool ExtremEngine 3T might just pull it off. Equipped with 140mm fans, this could be the best choice for you if you don't want to take a chance with water. "When I first heard about this case, I just had to get my hands one as I've been patiently waiting to see which company would jump the gun and release a case with fans larger than 120mm. When it comes to PC cases, all manufacturers have really hit a standstill in terms of providing better air cooling. While 120mm fans paired with a superbly designed case can indeed provide sufficient cooling... Read more...
In the need for a heavy duty Chipset cooler? JingTing, a little known company, has sent HardwareXL one beast of a cooler. Because of it's size, it might not be compatible with every setup though. "Out of the blue we received a small box containing a new kind of chipset cooler. The company that send it to us goes by the name of "JingTing". I must say I have never heard of them before, but when I took a peek at the content in the box it looked very impressive. If you have a noisy chipset cooler you might want to check out this cooler."... Read more...
As someone who can't stand a loud PC, I'm always on the lookout for new, high-performing yet silent cooling products. So far my favorite has got to be Zalman's Reserator 1 Plus, but there are lots of choices out there. Like the Evercool Silver Knight reviewed at ThinkComputers.org. "Liquid cooling is becoming more and more mainstream, but most liquid cooling solutions involve lots of parts and lots of time to assemble. Evercool may have the solution to this problem with an interesting looking product they call the Silver Knight. It is a CPU cooler heatpipe cooling solution with built in water cooling. The Silver Knight is something that might... Read more...
Watercooling isn't cheap, but the prices have become fairly reasonable over the years. If you're still running on air, but find yourself looking for something a little better, XSPC's new X20 is aiming to be a solid choice. It's a small system, but as Madshrimps reports, it gets the job done. "XSPC is fairly new to the water cooling world. Their first water cooling kit has been knighted X20. The kit is both compact and compatible with most motherboard sockets. In this respect X20 may be the ideal entry level kit."... Read more...
