Now I'm not saying you are guaranteed to win the PCPer/Corsair contest with these watercooling kits, but it certainly can't hurt!  Try Alphacool's new 12V NexXoS, reviewed at MODTHEBOX.  It's good at cooling and powerful, as in 30W of 12V, so make sure your powersupply still has a bit of overhead on it, you don't want that pump shutting down!

"One of the key components included with this kit is the Alphacool NexXxoS XP Water Block which measures approximately 2"x 2" x 0.75".

There's a contest over at 3D Extreme to win Spire's KestralKing, and a review of it as well.   It's a good heatsink if you aren't planning to overclock, but want better performance than the packaged heatsink/fan.  Also included are 3 VGA cooler reviews, including a two-fer from GruntvillE.

"Spire has always made some decent coolers and the KestrelKing VI ranks among their better ones.

Aspire's new X-Plorer has some interesting features, like a nice top blowhole with a good fan cover.  But you would much rather hear about it from the reviewers at Pimprig, right?  More case reviews follow, as usual, but at the bottom are 2 articles and a gallery.  The casemod competition might read a little easier through babelfish, but the pictures are worth 1000 words, whatever your mother tongue!

"A big bonus for the design of the case is the inclusion of a removable motherboard tray.

Today I've got a mixed bag to share with you.  First up is air cooled heatsinks, like the Thermaltke K450 that Bjorn3D reviewed.  It's not the fanciest on the market, but it can certainy cool an FX-51 or 55.  After considering the other CPU heatsinks, move onto the GPU coolers for that extra kick on your games.  Increase the life of those Raptors with the HDD enclosures, and wrap it all up with multifunction control panels that do more than just tell you the temperature and let you change the speed of your fans
