For almost two decades now Asetek has been building cooling products that help increase CPU speed and performance. The Danish company specializes in liquid cooling solutions for everything from data centers to your home gaming rig. You may not realize it, but you might know them very well from the excellent AIO coolers that are sold to other companies to be rebranded. Today we are going to take a look at four of their AIO coolers, the 510LC, 550LC, 570LX, and the 591LX. All four coolers under the Asetek brand are all used in pre-built machines by companies like CyberPowerPC and iBuyPower.
After my recent review of the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX I felt that I wasn’t quite done with the review. What good is a case designed for watercooling with all air cooling installed? And aside from that travesty, I felt that in order to properly test Phanteks’ made for watercooling mini-ITX case I should actually do a proper install. With that in mind follow along with this guide as I install a full custom loop in the Enthoo Evolv ITX.
The idea of powering a device without wires or a battery may have just taken a huge step forward. In an unprecedented advance in the field, Japanese Researchers working for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries funded by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry have successfully beamed electricity across a 1640 foot air gap.
Since the introduction of their first case, the Enthoo Primo way back in 2013 Phanteks has been busy. While they could easily have sat around enjoying the success that the Primo brought, the crew at Phanteks has instead been bringing us many many new and innovative cases. With their finger on the pulse of the mod community, each new case seems to fulfill a niche that the PC world has just been waiting to have filled. Certainly no exception to this rule, today we are taking a close look at the newest addition to the Phanteks family, the Enthoo Evolv ITX. Like it’s wildly popular predecessor the Evolv, this new mini chassis is here to provide big install space in a tiny form factor. Accepting only mini ITX motherboards, we are excited to see what this micro machine has to offer.
To great fan fare and some deplore, in a livestream announcement last night, Nvidia introduced us to the new Shield Android based console. Featuring the new Nvidia Tegra X1 processor and backed up with a 256-core Maxwell GPU equipped with 3gb of ram, this new console is certainly one of the more capable that we have come across.
In this instance, the future may be now. Israeli company StoreDot is on the verge of bringing a brand new battery technology to the market. Based on nanodots made from the same peptide molecule that seems to be responsible for causing Alzheimer’s disease, this two nanometer (two billionths of a meter) crystal has an extremely high capacitance and the ability to hold an electrical charge. The result of the high capacitance is the ability to take and hold an electrical charge extremely quickly. StoreDot has developed this into a usable battery that can be charged empty to full in 60 seconds!
Corsair has been selling all in one liquid coolers since these coolers first started hitting the market. In fact without them it’s possible this category would never have gotten off the ground. With such a broad line of AIO coolers keeping them busy, it’s been some time now since Corsair has made an addition to their 280mm category. Today we’re going to be taking a close look at the H110i GT. This dual 140mm unit boasts some fresh aesthetic designs as well as some really cool new technology. Follow along as we find out if this GT reboot is really a luxurious high performance cooler worthy of the GT moniker or just another AIO with a fancy looking name.
Still haven’t upgraded even your home displays to 4K yet? No problem, the Video Electronics Standards Association has introduced the Embedded DisplayPort 1.4a video transfer format which allows for 8K streams on laptops.
Current tech seems to be at the tipping point where we are about to see a really well built selection of VR headsets brought to the consumer market. Never one to be left behind, Razer has introduced at CES 2015 the OSVR Hacker Dev Kit VR headset.
