The Ammo 533 has all the features you expect wrapped up with some pretty unique styling. A heavy-duty SECC construction chassis, 120mm ventilation fans, and plenty of... Read more...
Those of you looking for a beefy GPU cooler, without sacrificing PCI slots, will want to check out the Thermalright V-1 Ultra reviewed at OCIA. It's got a unique "wrap-around" design, with heat-pipes and an oversided fan. The guys at OCIA seemed to like it too; so much so that they granted it their "Seal of Approval".The overall thinness of the V-1 Ultra is designed to minimize intrusion of the cooler into adjacent components. The portion on the front of the card is thinner than most stock coolers, however the addition of the fins and fan on the back of the card may inhibit its use in an SLI configuration. ... Read more...

Asus VR Cooler Review at motherboards.org "For our closing remarks, I'd have to think that our comments on the performance will more than suffice - wow.

Nevertheless, the ability to cool the CPU effectively while chilling surrounding power circuitry... Read more...

Hey folks! After some internet downtime, I'm back on the net and ready to deliver the news. With my cable internet gone, but cable TV still remaining, I fell back to watching the boob tube to ease my boredom, though I had to endure commercial after commercial of Verizon DSL.
