It looks like the title of new miracle cure for heat has passed by carbon black. It has taken too long in development, and is only used to a limited extent in thermal pads and grease. A newish form of carbon, the nano-tube looks to be the next contender. When [H]ard|OCP refers to them as 'forests', they are bang on ...

Heatpipes have grown up and aren't afraid to show it off. They are exposing themselves all over the place, it's shameless really. You can see all the pics over at Benchmark Reviews, with several brands of exposed heatpipe cooler, including the brand new OZC Vendetta. It probably has something to do with them hanging out with Thermoele

Hiper tends to be known for PSUs, more so across the pond in Europe than in North America, but they still have a presence here. They have just released an ATX case, called the Anubis, in which they have incorporated heatsink style thermal dissipation directly into the cases structure. PC Apex found a lot to like about this case, which helped his air-cooled

The Tagan CS-Monolith is huge! Huge as in it has a pair of 250mm fans on the side, five 5.25" bays and seven 3.5" bays.

Sure, having a 1300W PSU is impressive, but the chances are very good that even the dream righ you have in your head isn't going to need that much power. 600W seems to be enough to power most systems, as long as that 600W PSU is of high quality.
