The ultimate providers of power supplies has been PC Power & Cooling.  With the new power hungry components that are popping up in high end systems everywhere, they went and made a new series of PSU.  Bjorn3D reviewed their newest, the 1kW-SR.  With a .98 Power Factor and 3 12V lines (two 18 amp and one 36 amp) you won't run short on juice.

It's not that In-Win are a no name company, it's just that their PSUs are usually found pre-installed in cases.  X-bit Labs grabbed 6 of their PSUs, of differing wattages and series to test them with the newer, power hungry components found in enthusiast's PCs.  Find out if they can still hold their own in this big test session.

Low noise case with a lot of airflow

NZXT's Zero case is an unassuming case that hides some interesting features.  Overclockers Club found the most odd feature is the front cover.  In order to open it and get at your optical drives, you would have to remove anything that is plugged into the front panel.  However, if you are looking for a quiet case that can keep your system cool, you may forgive them.

Introduction and Features

Thermaltake’s Big Typhoon VX is an aggressive CPU cooler that performs extremely well and now comes with a more powerful, variable speed fan. Unfortunately, the new tool-less mounting system left me unimpressed.

Oooh ... Shiny!!!

A True Review stumbled upon a very shiny case called the XKROMA.  Not only is the chrome outside spectacular, there are some interesting things going on around back.

Tagan Turbojet & Thermaltake Toughpower, which fits you to a 'T'

HotHardware can't overstress the importance of a good power supply, and provide you with some help in getting one.  The Toughpower comes in at 750W with a 14cm fan for cooling, and some nice cable management.  The Turbojet is 1.1kW with a pair of 80mm fans for cooling and a more traditional (non-modular) cable system.  See which is right for you, or skip them both and head straight to Lee's review of the Akasa Power+ 650W.
