GeIL Copper Thermal Compound Review
We all know GeIL as a popular memory modules (RAM) manufacturer. GeIL sent us a small amount of their copper thermal compound. This tiny niche market is being dominated by Arctic Silver. Many large manufacturers fail to create high quality thermal compounds that can deal with the latest Arctic Silver products. Today, we are putting the GeIL copper thermal compound face to face against one of the best thermal compound solutions in the market. You’re right; it’s the Arctic Silver 5. We are going to find out about it pretty soon.
Silverstone Strider ST60F 600W Power Supply Unit Review
600W might seem like a lot to many people, but for the high end user there is no doubt that a good power supply is a must have. High end users often have dual graphics cards, multiple hard drives, a high end CPU, two optical drives and several fans involved in their current setup. With specs like that a 600W PSU is desirable if you want a completely stable system. The ST60F is capable of maintaining 600W of continuous power output at 50°C. The ST60F has quad +12V rails, for extreme performance and giving the Silverstone ST60F a total of 42 amps.

Arctic Cooling ATI Silencer 5 Rev 2 Review
Here we have the Arctic Cooling ATI Silencer 5 VGA cooler. These coolers are becoming an industry standard of sorts when it comes to top of the line video cards. HIS started the trend and now many other top manufacturers like ASUS have added them to their high end offerings.
Asus Extreme N7800GT Review
In reality and according to Riva tuner the card runs at 526 MHz core and 1200 MHz for the memory, very impressive indeed. Now you are probably curious to see if the Asus Extreme N7800GT is as fast as or faster than the 7800GTX.

Hiper hasn't been that long on the market but the name is already known around the globe for there powerful and professional products, especially their power supplies. We got the opportunity to get a closer look at their newest high performance power supply which delivers the latest ATX power standards and incorporates a new unique modular cable design to reduce excess cables. Lets dig into the Type-R series Power Supply Units, namely the Hiper Type-R HPU-4B580 (580W) power supply.
When we first implemented the Flamezone it was intended to be a place to just chill out and let off some steam, but since people apparently didn't understand the idea, we found it better to just completely remove it. We have better things to do then to open our email accounts everyday and get a few dozen emails reporting posts on that forum. So from now on you guys must be on your best behavior since all flames on the site will be harshly dealt with. Consider yourself warned.
Thermalright has been a major player in the CPU cooling business for a number of years. I believe it was sometime in the fall of 2001 when I had first heard of Thermalright. The heatsink that exploded them into the market was the all-copper SK-6, a tough little screamer of a sink with a 60mm Delta on top that knocked quite a few larger heatsinks out of the top performance spots. My first experience with their products however wasn't until a little more than a year later when I picked up my first SLK-800A. I was so impressed with the cooling ability that I have used Thermalright heatsinks almost exclusively on my overclocked systems since.
Owners of a CD with the XCP program are being offered a replacement disc free of anti-piracy software, $7.50 in cash and a free download of a Sony BMG album from an online music service. Consumers can forgo the cash and get three album downloads instead.
Microsoft acknowledged late Wednesday the existence of a zero-day exploit for Windows Metafile images, and said it was looking into ways to better protect its customers. Even worse, by the end of the day nearly 50 variants of the exploit had already appeared.
While some games track 3DMark closely, others do not, so ATI will probably be more than that little bit ahead on a number of games, but this new card is probably not the clean kill ATI would want it to be. The top end G71 should have little trouble eclipsing it in most things.
Chip giant Intel has now published an example of the new trademark it will show off with the US Patent and Trademark Office. It made three applications for the new logo with the office a few days back, using the logo shown below, but each application is substantially similar.
Good news, we are seeing feedback on the fact that this patch works for both nVidia graphics cards (GeForce series 6 & 7) as well as the ATI X1000 family Radeon X1300, X1600 and the mighty Radeon X1800 XL and XT series.
For a long time, A4Tech has been associated with peripherals that cater to mainstream users. The X-718 is A4Tech's foray into the gaming mouse market. Incorporating a 2000dpi sensor and a dedicated button for changing dpi, will it be able to stand up against the more well-known gaming mouse?

When it comes to watercooling the Eheim and Hydor pumps have been the leading ones on the market. Swiftech and Dangerden both have released their own pumps and today we take a look at a 12V pump from Dangerden that we just received for testing. The problem before with 12v pumps have been that they make quite a bit of noise. Performance wise they have been pretty equal to the bigger 220V pumps but as said noise wise they are louder. That is exactly what we will be concentrating our review on today to see how loud it is and what performance we can get out of this pump.
Titan is a relative newcomer to the cooling business, but from what I have seen they are a rising star. They produce quality products that not only look good but perform good as well. It seems everyone is coming up with aftermarket cooling solutions for today’s high end video cards, and everyone is trying to lure customers with some sort of attractive packaging. Recently I reviewed the Evercool Nighthawk VGA cooler, its cover was in the shape of a Stealth Airplane. Today for review I have the Titan Eagle Universal VGA cooler, as the name suggests it has an eagle theme to it. It might look good but does it perform? Let's find out.
