If you have a motherboard deisgned to passivly cool your chipsets with heatpipes, the new Coolermaster Hyper TX will help.  The idea behind this heatsink & fan is a shroud that redirects some of the airflow onto any heatpipes located near the CPU socket, to turn the passive solution into an active one.  The HardwareZone does note that this is not a universal cooler, there are 2 seperate versions for AMD and Intel.

Transcend's DDR2 modules haven't been reviewed as much as the OCZ and Corsair offerings, but they are not out of the memory business by any means.  Big Bruin was pleasantly surprised by their performance, and found it might even be possible to push these DIMMs harder with a better cooling solution.

HotHardware points out a glaringly obvious oversight that a lot of people are guilty of.  Why are you plugging a PC worth more than $1000 into a $5 power bar?  If you ever get a power surge that kills your PC, you may be kicking yourself for not getting anything like the Ultra Power Systems.

Bjorn3D offers some advice on building a truely unique case, without having to get a CNC machine.  They start out with several designs of wooden cases, but as the build progresses they find some of their ideas don't work out the way they wanted.  In the end though, a great looking wooden case is made, and advice on how to start your own is plentiful.

Bloody huge turbine powered heatpipe cooler, and it runs underwater

The Antazone AS-C1000 Universal Heatpipe cooler is built around a 95mm fan that provides 49.8cfm @ 25dBA and a speed of only 2200rpm, plus they claim it can run underwater ... not that I'd recommend testing that with a running system.  Big Bruin gives it a run against the XP120.
