Techniz reviews the XSPC X20 universal liguid cooling kit.  It is an easy to use all in one basic system, with a pump, CPU block and radiator, aimed at someone who has never changed to watercooling.  I even provides much better cooling than air, so you can see why people make the change from air cooling.

Give your air cooling some style

Think Computer has posted a review of AC Ryan's new BlackFire fans.  They are very bright and colourful, and have LEDs, on seperate power leads, so adding the fans to a fan controller won't necessarily mean that the LEDs dim when you slow the fan down.  They could well be one of the easiest ways to get into modding your box.

'If you know modding, chances are you know AC Ryan. They make a lot of cool modder related

supplies, but it's not all just for modders.

Heatsinks that offer a choice

GruntvillE has posted a review of 2 of Noctua's new heatsinks, the NH-U9 and NH-U12.  Both are very large, so not all cases will accomodate them, but if you can squeeze them in, the cooling power is impressive.  Neither model comes with fans, as they aren't needed in a normal setup, due to the size of the heatsink, and the number of heatpipes.  However, both models can fit 2 fans for overclocking, the U9 using 92mm and the U12 allowing the use of 120mm fans.
