Arctic Cooling has recently released the big brother to S2 the Accelero S1, and for $20-$30 you can set up either a perfectly quiet VGA cooling system, or strap up to 2 fans onto it to get some serious cooling. Bjorn3D didn't try pushing the graphics card they had attached it to, as they were focusing strictly on the cooler, but when the temperatures are lowered, the clock speed gets a chance to go up.

The HD 2900 Pro was released to the world without any fanfare, almost as if AMD was embarrassed by it. Nonetheless, Neoseeker noticed and grabbed one to benchmark. On the face, the card seemed a fair match up to the 8800GTS 320MB version, but tempted by the similarity to the XT, Neoseeker tried overclocking it. They were surprised to see it hit a core clock speed of 858 MHz and 1800MHz for the DDR memory, and suddenly it became a whole new card.

nVIDIA has been hinting that the 320MB versions of their cards don't have much time left in the channel. That doesn't mean that they, or their partners, are slacking off. Case and point is the XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB Fatal1ty up for review at The Hardware Zone. With a core clock set 150MHz above stock and the RAM a full 400MHz above stock there is some serious competition for the 8800 GTX 320MB version.
Jumping Right To It

If you like the CPU-Z application for your overclocking or informational purposes, you'll probably find the new GPU-Z utility just as handy.
GPU-Z does not hide its similarity to CPU-Z when it comes to the user
interface, but the job at hand is absolutely massive. There are numerous
graphics chips on the market in most insane combinations, discrete or
integrated, and so on.

Push the button and it goes faster, or at least that is the theory behind MSI's NX8600GT Twin Turbo. Hardware Zone reviews the card, at the normal speeds and with the Turbo button pushed. There is definitely a difference in performance, mostly thanks to the overclocking of the stream processors, but it does leave me with a question. Who is going to buy this card and not push the Turbo button?
