AMD had something to say about Intel's unpcoming full buffer DIMM's ... they'll need about twice the power of a DDR stick to run. As many PC owners have found, the more power you put into a component, the more cooling it requires, and with the heat a Prescott throws out already, these blades will be hot.
"Close chip watchers know that Intel and its OEMs plan to support Fully-Buffered DIMMs in 2007.

Check out PimpRig's review of the Thermaltake Aquabay M3 5.25" Reservoir. Made of translucent blue
Polyethylene, this reservoir will look good in a modded case, and you won't need to worry about it cracking over time.
"I'm one of those people that likes a reservoir over a T-line, yet I've never really cared for the
thought of a plexiglas reservoir inside my case. Plexi ages, plexi cracks...plexi leaks. Plexi

It's a big, bad, powerful cooler, but it only fits on P4 systems (LGA 775). Motherboards.org reviews the Asus VR Cooler, which tames the heat of the Prescott, even overclocked.
"For our closing remarks, I'd have to think that our comments on the performance will more than
suffice - wow. At a great price with great performance, there's almost nothing not to love about
this heatsink, apart from the disappointing lack of cross platform mounting.

MVKTech has review up of Sharkoon's Silent Eagles. Not only will it go well with that Golf themed PC you're working on, but an 80mm fan that moves 22.7CFM at 17.8 dB(A) is not something you have to yell over to be heard.
"Sharkoon came up with a new silent solution when it comes to fans, namely the Silent Eagle range.
The Silent Eagle comes in 2 different versions, the Eagle 1000 and Eagle 2000 where the number

Who you gunna call? Heat Buster!!! Well, maybe not ... but Maximium CPU does have a review of the PCI cooler with more today. Not only does it provide cooling to whatever component is closest to where you place it, it also has an exhaust to remove more hot air from the case.

The Sunbeam Theta TP-101 fan controller is a little different than you might expect. It's a PCI card, with a satndard molex power connector and 8 fan connectors. All the fans in your system connect to it, and are controlled via installed software. Read the full review at Big Bruin.
"Sunbeamtech has offered the typical fan controller (rheobus) in a variety of styles in the past,
but the software based Theta TP-101 is much different.
