Introduction and Features

Universal air-cooled heatsinks supporting 220w TDP have taken center stage in 2010 thanks to new six-core CPU platforms from AMD and Intel. The combination of aluminum fin arrays, heatpipes, and copper bases make for outstanding cooling solutions for today's hottest and fastest processors. Thermaltake stepped up to the plate and developed a dual-fan universal heatsink called the Frio to give power users a proven design that chills out different types of processors and looks good doing it.

Introduction

Hardware reviewers and overclockers typically have one common trait they share – they like to test new components every day and push them to their limits. Instead of using the retail box the motherboard came in to create a “test bench” of sorts, Dimastech has provided users an alternative called the Bench/Test Table Easy version 2.5. This steel, open-air beast supports a variety of motherboard types and CPU cooling solutions. This looks to be the most sturdy test bench we've seen yet!

The Obsidian Series gets a little cheaper

The Corsair 800D was easily one of our favorite cases of 2009 and the new 700D that is going to be available later in April is nearly identical but with a $50 lower price. It does drop the hot-swap bays and the side window though. If you were interested in the 800D but thought it was just a bit out of range then give our video review of this new case a look!

Introduction and Features

Zalman's heatsinks have carved out their own path in the CPU cooling market and turned what used to be large chucks of aluminum and copper and into stylish, modern, and functional works of art. Their CNPS10X series has been very impressive and we saw low temps when we reviewed the original CNPS10X Extreme last year. When they informed us they were adding a new member to the group called the CNPS10X Flex, we had to get one for our LGA 1156 test bench to evaluate its heat dissipation capabilities.

Silverstone is one of the few vendors who hasn't left the SFF crowd hang out to dry. I've reviewed every SFF case they have developed over the past few years, and their latest addition to the popular Sugo series is the SG06. This case shares many features with its older brother the SG05, but includes some new wrinkles to the front bezel design as well as support for solid state drives and larger third-party heatsinks.

PC cases, for the most part, stick to basic reference designs that many vendors have adopted and supported over the years. While we've seen some creativity being incorporated into production cases, most are not what I would call "totally unique". Thankfully, the folks over at NZXT are continuing to push the boundaries of conventional PC enclosure design and a perfect example of this is the Panzerbox.
