I'm back, and have quite the pile up of reviews to post.  Expect to see longer lists of reviews this week, as I try to dig my way out of this pile o' emails.  Up today is most of the case reviews that popped up while I was happily goofing off.  Featured today is a funky looking case with an even funkier name.

I present a review of Swiftech's solution for users who use 1/2" ID tubing. Plus many other manufacturers current offerings in the ways of phase change goodness.  I'm on holidays for the next 2 weeks, so you'll have to read 'em slow.  Great weekend all.


"If you are using a high pressure pump then the MCW6000 will likely perform better than the MCW6002.

Just a few quick links to help you keep your cool today folks. 


"The Swiftech name has been associated with quality heatsinks for as long as I've been an Overclocker. Continuing their excellent tradition, the MCX line of heatsinks represent the very latest and finest in Swiftech heatsink technology. The entire line of MXC coolers all benefit from the Patented Helicoid pin design which takes air cooling to a whole new level.

GruntvillE reviews a pre-modded case designed by VoyeurMods.Com.  It is called a Frost-Byte H2O and is made up of 'a Chen Ming 602 with a laser etched window and an incredible Danger Den Cooling system', and it is impressive looking, and probably cools as well as your fridge.  As well, 2 looks at a NZXT case, in black and green, plus

Here is a nice interactive chart of many of the waterblocks that are available today, expressed as the delta between CPU and water temp, by flow rates.  This week, the water cooling based reviews dried up a little.  To make up for it, here are coolers designed for your RAM, HDD, your ears and your lap.  Also included, one of the oddest 5.25' bay inserts I have ever seen, if you are a car lover, it's worth looking at. 


"It's a page that allows you to simply choose the waterblocks you are interested in and see their performance.

There is an area of the PC I seem to have been neglecting to cool properly, and now that summer has come, it is actually a problem.  Well, GruntvillE has taken a look an active RAM cooler that is good at keping things cool ...   and it's got blinking lights too!

"I find it funny then that for the most part our memory has been left to the feeble protection of thin heat spreaders. I spent some serious cash on my memory and I imagine you did to.

MODTHEBOX takes a look at the CM Stacker STC-101 Aluminum Case.  Coolermaster certainly believes that bigger is better when it comes to case fans, and they have also included some very interesting features.  Take a look!

"A single 80mm exhaust fan resides at the top portion of the CM Stacker STC-101 Aluminum Case. A square vent comes pre-installed with a dual ball bearing 80mm fan that allows for warm air to be drawn out of the case.

Your PC wants more money spent on Phase Change

If you haven't heard, nVentiv (one of the 2 bigger names in watercooling) is no more.  That hasn't slowed Aseteck down at all, take a gander at this guy, "tuned for an optimal 240W of heat removal".  Have a good (normal length) weekend all.


"The brilliant mounting mechanism, peerless cooling performance (now unmatched since the Mach II GT is no more) and stylish enclosure allow Asetek to raise the commercial phase-change CPU cooling bar."
