Thermaltake has a nice all aluminium case, and 3DVelocity takes a good look at it. Duelling Tsunamis, Yeong Yangs, and Liang Lis; all your favorites for a Monday morning.
"In a market full of aluminium-fronted steel cases, it's nice to see Thermaltake have opted to run with a complete aluminium construction. This may take away slightly from the rigidity but look at that weight! The 0.8mm aluminium chassis means the case tips the scales at just a shade over 13lbs without the power supply.
The PC AirCon is a small, solid-state airconditioner designed specifically for cooling personal computers.

Globalwin is trying out a new style of watercooling, and A True Review has it in for testing. Take a look and see if this new stylish cooler is the right one for you. Danger Den and Swiftech also have products being tested, if you aren't ready to make the plunge into a new style of cooling.
"Today's water cooling systems are simple and consistent in design. Generally, a system consists of a radiator, reservoir, pump, and waterblock.

I find large heatpipe heatsinks are starting to look like car engines, and the Thermalright XP-90 that Silent PC Review looks at is no exception. If that HS/F isn't the one for you, the Phoronix has looked at a few other types, and that's not even half the reviews today.
"Thermalright's XP-90 CPU heatsink, which features four heatpipes, thin aluminum fins and a nickel-plated copper base, was released at the same time as the XP-120.

Another random mix of cooling supplies. A True Review looks at a RAM heatspreader, several sites review silent ways to cool your video card, many take a look at the JetArt notebook cooler, and more. When you're done, go Vote if you should be!
"Our computers have become one big show and tell. With the advent of acrylic cases and case windows, visually what is on the inside has become just as important as what is on the outside. Moreover, what is on the inside does not sit there in hopes that we look; it reaches out and grabs our attention. How you ask?

A full dozen case reviews for you to look at this Monday. Start with SystemCooling's review of an often overlooked case manufacturer, Meridian Tech, and their newest case, the XClio Jr.
"It would not be fair or accurate to say the XClio Jr. (referred to as just Junior hereafter) is just a smaller version of the XClio.

Lots of Video card reviews out now, and with Ryan's great article on what is available and where, it seemed appropriate to give you a few reviews to help decide which goes on the Christmas list, and which one you should buy your friendy neighbourhood newsfrog! Start off in the Hardware Zone, with a direct comparision of the x800 and the 6800, and then try the rest!
"The GeForce 6800 series and the RADEON X800 series represen

A watercooling quicky for a busy friday morning. Trusted reviews compares 3 different watercooling setups, and RBmods and the OCMod shop both have reviews this week too. Read Lee's review too, even if it is air cooled instead of using water.
"To help you make the plunge, we've decided to take a closer look at three different approaches to water-cooling, each theoretically suited to a different level of experience.
