"The Alphacool NexXxos XP block turned in a very impressive performance and really compares well against the top US designed blocks that I put it up against.

If it moves air to cool your PC, chances are that at least one of these reviews will cover that area.  Start it all off with and odd looking dual fan from Coolermaster, put through it's paces by ExtremeMhz.

'Recently, many enthusiast manufacturers have been starting to shift away from the standard 80mm fan design. This has resulted in several very odd looking setups, and today we get to take a look at Cooler Master's entry — the Dual Storm.

Thermaltake has designed a case specifically made to accomodate external radiators, and Overclocker Cafe takes a look at it.  If that's not enough, further down we have 2 multifunction panels, and some thumb screws that are a little more artistic than normal.

"If you look closely you will see multiple 3/8' indentations, ten to be exact in several places. These can be punched out so that 3/8' OD hosing can be run through there to reach an external radiator or reservoir if you choose.

"Here you can see some of the residues left on the acrylic tops from such a long period of use. Most likely under closer inspection, you could find a similar residue over the surface of the interior of your copper blocks.

Is it just me, or are a lot of case manufacturers re-usung each others model names, usually with a fighting theme of some sort?  Well, true or not, the Cavalier that Viper Lair reviews would stand out in any battlefield.  Much like a Glitterboy for you Rifts fans :-)

Whether you are more concerned with how your case looks on the outside, or on the inside, there should be something to tweek your interest today.  Start off with the Mutant X, and see what else catches your eye.


"Wanting to get away from the sometimes boring and average looking cases that are out on the market, Kingwin designed the Mutant X case for those who want to be a little on the wild side. Many of today's cases have a plain or modern and sterile look to them that may not appeal to everyone.
