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.

NZXT's Trinity is a nice open case, that can be set up to be very breezy.  Head on over to ExtremeMhz and read the full review.  Then keep looking down, there are over a dozen reviews, and one of them might just be the case you're looking for.

'When it comes to gaming cases, NZXT has quickly taken the interest of many in the gaming community thanks to their highly unique product line. Their cases certainly do stand out from a majority.

Another mixed cooling bag & More

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.

Big Brushed Box & More

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.

Liquid Cooling Oddity & no more

Sorry, I got nothing in the way of watercooling or phase change reviews today.  However, if you will bear with me for a minute, I'd like to show you one of the oddest liquid cooling methods I have ever seen.  I can't postively say that this works, but I think you all should see it ...

Blowin air for CPU's and GPU's & More

Fan controllers, multifunction panels, and air cooling for your CPU and GPU, it's all here.  First, start off at 3DVelocity, and see a fight between a Turbine and a Kamaboko.  Neither will take the air-cooling performance crown, but they are ceratinly interesting to look at.  Also check out the various flavours of panels, and the 3 GPU cooler reviews at the bottom.

"I'm not quite sure if the recent surge in CPU coolers is due to some kind of upsurge in air cooling or if it's just one of those unexplainable coincidences that we have to put down to some strange, latent

Cases, Cool Stuff & More

Start off with this review of the Antec TX1088AMG at Overclockers Online.  At 35lbs, it's a cooling heavyweight, with 1 120mm fan and 2 80mm's, plus an optional 92mm CPU duct.  If a new case isn't on your list, how about some greating modding stuff, or a nice multi-function panel?

"As you can see, there was a dramatic drop in temperatures when I shifted cases. Over 10 degrees Celsius in the load temperatures!
