Koolance combined their latest 1kW liquid cooling system with an elegant Lian Li case to create the awesome PC4-1025 liquid cooling system. Can this beauty tame our red-hot 955 CPU with dual 7800GTS video cards? Check out the review and find out!

The people at DailyCE are as confused as I am over the soon to be released MP3 player, the Vibex from Trekstor. With a remote control and an FM Tuner, a docking station and more, you have to wonder if we are going a little overboard.
