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 and how far we can push it past its rated speeds... EVGA GTX 480 Hydro Copper FTW Review... Read more...
When it comes to high end graphics cards, too much is never enough. As gamers, our insatiable thirst for more pixel pushing power leads to a never ending cycle of exotic, enthusiast level videocards, including dual GPU models that take up two or three expansion slots on our motherboard. Add In Board (AIB) partner companies like EVGA regularly take supplementary measures to accommodate consumers who desire products that perform faster, run cooler, and operate with less noise than reference design models. For the most part, these steps may consist of more aggressively binning GPUs in order to provide factory overclocked options, redesigning the PCB and heatsink to support more voltage for...

Asetek and liquid cooling solutions go hand-in-hand; the company has been in the business of keeping gaming rigs cool for years now, and they're one of the most respected names in the sector. So what's the big fuss here? Well, Asetek has really gone above and beyond with this one: a new all-in-one liquid cooled prototype machine that's far, far more powerful than any other AIO we have seen in the past. To date, there aren't any pre-fabricated all-in-one PCs that utilize liquid cooling and high-end components. It's definitely a niche, and we suspect that has kept companies from entering this market full-on. But Asetek sees an opportunity here, and now that we really think about it, we sort of...

However, in recent years watercooling has become ever more mainstream as evidenced by the number of manufacturers producing entry-level kits. These kits often provide ease of installation and operation at the expense of performance and cost. They also eliminate much of the knowledge barrier to entry to water cooling. Since the early DIY days, water cooling has... Read more...

Hey folks, this afternoon we have a few photography related articles for you, along with a Laptop and water cooling system review.

Fujitsu P7010D Laptop Review @ Designtechnica "The LifeBook 7010 is an attractive system that melds shades of silver and black with a somewhat industrial, yet refined looked. There is very little in the way of branding on the system itself. The Fujitsu name is on the bottom of the system and on the inside of the lid only. The top of the lid and sides of the 7010 are completely bare. The lid hinge is definitely unique and what makes... Read more...
