Procooling reviews the newest offering from Little River waterblocks. Plus 2 guides, on freon cooling, and a basic setup guide for watercooling in a normal case. Chipset heatsinks and fill ports abound this friday, enjoy.
"The fact that the design of the Storm G4 enables it to outperform the silver Cascade SS is quite surprising and welcome. Consider that the Cascade SS was AUD$255 and available in very limited quantities.

Fanless cooling is becoming more and more popular, and it seems to work to! If putting a dozen or so 50 decibel fans in your system just doesn't appeal to you, then try out this Thermaltake Heatsink after reading Red & Blackness' review. Or if you are a deadicated overclocker, maybe one of these heatsink & fan combos is more up to your speed.
"We will take a look at a completely fanless solution from Thermaltake today.

"Imagine a computer whose memory is exponentially larger than its apparent physical size; a computer that can manipulate an exponential set of inputs simultaneously; a computer that computes in the twilight zone of space. You would be thinking of a quantum computer. Relatively few and simple concepts from quantum mechanics are needed to make quantum computers a possibility. The subtlety has been in learning to manipulate these concepts.

Couple of differently styled cases for you to look at today. The Raidmax that Big Bruin reviews is fairly flashy, and the Silverstone Wind Tunnel will help out of you are more into speed than looks. Or maybe you just don't have enough Spiderman stuff yet.
"The Raidmax Cobra 822 is a great bargain for a gaming case. Its paint job is superb and it has a striking appearance that is sure to stand out at any LAN party.

Quiet again this week, only 2 watercooling reviews to offer you, but then it's the quality, not the quantity that counts, right? The Asetek kit that Big Bruin reviews, based on 1/2 inch tubing, should keep your A64 nice and cool while you crunch SETI numbers or frag friends.
"The added heat created by overclocking the Athlon 64 really didn't do much to stress the WaterChill system. Temperatures rose by nominal values across the board, from mere fractions of a degree to a couple degrees maximum. Very nice!

Silent PC Review looks at a new offering from CoolerMaster, OCModShop looks at a heatsink designed for the Prescott, and there is a 7 way round up at bit news. Hope you don't have any deadlines today.
"The Ultra Vortex is a recent addition to CoolerMaster's enthusiast HSF line, one that addresses the quiet market -- at least in the promotional material and packaging. It is also one of an increasing number of cross-platform HSF. This one works for socket 478 and the AMD K8 sockets.

I was far too full of turkey to post these yesterday, so the case reviews for this week come a day late. Everthing from the budget MGE ECO L4 to the more heavy duty Temjin that 3DX reviews is worth a look.
"The SilverStone TJ05 is just a monster of a Case, it's spacious and rigid. The quality behind this Case was never and will never be questioned. If you are looking for a LAN Party Case, look elsewhere.

Overclockers Online puts a Swiftech Watercooling Kit to the test, A1-Electronics compares 3 heatsinks built for 1/4 inch hoses, and even more from GruntvillE.
"The Swiftech H20-120-P Water Cooling Kit we examine today is everything a user needs to jump into water cooling. This kit is made for Socket 478 Pentium 4 users, but most of the material covered should apply well to the other kits using similar parts.

Bit News has posted a good old fashioned heatsink round-up. Also, ExtremeMhz and OverClockersClub look at the Thermalright XP-120, and there is more ... cooling solutions for your VGA, chipsets and an air conditioner to boot.
"AMD's socket A may be one of the oldest sockets that's still selling, but it is alive and kicking; Sempron processors are flying out of the shops.
