It weighs the better part of 2lbs, and moves 54 CF/M, what is it?  Thermaltake's Big Typhoon, as reviewed at LAN Addict.  If you think you can fit in your case without incorporating too many new blowholes, try it out!

"Yes, it is a big heatsink and requires that you have some room (OK, a lot) around your CPU socket, but the Big Typhoon's design keeps it from have any clearance problems with components on the motherboard.

The Register posted an article from Forbes, about the release of the A64 X2, and why the PC market isn't jumping all over the release date.


"Intel, with $34 billion in sales, can afford to pay for a lot of advertising - $2.1 billion in 2004 to be exact. A sizable chunk of that goes to a co-marketing program called "Intel Inside." The company doesn't disclose how much it spends on Intel Inside, but in its 2004 10-K filing with the U.S.

Sunbeam's Trio comes with a fairly strong PSU, a 120mm fan and a nice looking front panel.  Read about it in LANAddict's review.  Plus more news about the BTX from factor, if you haven't already seen enough, and an interesting looking case from Antec, that SilentPCReview hasn't finished testing yet.

Sunbeam has done a pretty outstanding job with the Trio! Although it is a steel case, its size helps keep the weight very manageable without sacrificing strength.

GruntvillE has 2 12V pumps up for testing today.  The PolarFLO TT is the larger, prettier one, with barbs for both 1/2ID and 3/8ID tubing, and the Swiftech MCP-600 is the smaller, quieter performer, built only for 1/2 inch.  See which is right for you, then consider build flexible LED leads to highlight it.

The one liquid cooling review I have to give you comes from MODTHEBOX, the Cooler Master AquaGate Mini R80.  If you are wondering, it's an 80mm-based radiator, and you can also get a 120mm version.  It has no abliilty to add video cooling to it, so here's a few new coolers below, in case you need 'em!

"One unique aspect of the Cooler Master AquaGate Mini R80 is the inclusion of an integrated pump and reservoir housing. This all-in-one solution works well with case interiors tight on free space.

Aerocool Gatewatch

GruntvillE has put together a nice review on the Aerocool Gatewatch fan contoller.

The Gatewatch unit is made of a plastic material that matches the aluminum cases very well. This unit comes in silver aluminum and black only. The front plate is plastic, but the base of the unit is aluminum. Recently I reviewed the Coolpanel from Aerocool, which was made entirely of plastic, which made mounting the unit difficult. I do not expect the plastic screwholes to last long.

Mountain Mods U2-UFO Brushed Aluminum Case is not like too many other cases out there.  It is a basic box that is just beggin to be modded and tricked out.  Plus, as SystemCooling shows in it's review, adding any type of cooling system to it is almost ridiculously easy.

"For the computer enthusiast and modder there never seems to be enough room inside your computer case.
