In the computer world, every once in awhile a company that is thought of as bargain basement starts to come out with great products. In this case we’re talking about XSPC. Usually considered at best to be entry level, not many would give XSPC a second look for pure performance. That is until they released their first Raystorm blocks. Now not only are they affordable, but they actually stack up against the big name water cooling manufacturers. And that leads us to today’s review, the XSPC RayStorm 750 RS240 Watercooling kit. This kit has everything you need to build your own custom watercooling loop. Let’s take a look…
NVIDIA has been pretty strict on what graphic card manufacturers can do with the GeForce GTX Titan graphics card. The one major exception is if the manufacturer installs a full-coverage waterblock on the card. Well it looks like Colorful has done that and will be releasing a factory overclocked GeForce GTX Titan iGame card. Of course this card will feature a full-coverage water block that you can add to your liquid cooling loop.
This is just something so cool we had to show you. If you are not familiar with what Raspberry Pi is, it is a credit-card-sized single-board computer powered by a 700 MHz ARM-based processor. Well James Couzens has decided that he wanted to add some watercooling to this tiny computer. He proceeded to create his own water-cooling system for it, complete with miniature pump and waterblock.
hermaltake’s line of Water 2.0 all-in-one CPU coolers have been extremely popular. We have reviewed the Water 2.0 Extreme, Performer & Pro. Thermaltake is announcing the brand new line of Water 3.0 all-in-one CPU coolers. Just like the Water 2.0 line they will be made up of the Water 3.0 Extreme, Water 3.0 Pro and Water 3.0 Performer.
AMD has officially released their Radeon HD 7990 graphics card today and EK Water Blocks is hard at work on a full-cover water block for the new dual-GPU card. The upcoming water block will be called the EK-FC7990 SE and will directly cool both GPUs, memory as well as the VRMs (voltage regulation module). Water will flow directly over these areas. With this block users will be able to have stable overclocks as these critical areas will be kept nice and cool.
In every industry there is always at least one company that seems to always be on top. No matter what product they are releasing they always sell well and everyone seems to love them. Without a doubt one of these companies is Corsair. As an owner of one of the original Corsair AIO’s, the H70, I am very interested to see how far they’ve come over the years. Today we will be taking a look at one of their most recent AIO units, the H80i. At the mid-top end of Corsairs line and with so many AIO cooling units on the market, lets take this cooler for a test drive and find out where it falls when the heat is turned up.
APASF was born out an idea of mixing the well established Steampunk design with the post-apocalyptic style. The idea has been in my head for the last 5-6 years but I wanted to wait until I developed my paint effect skills to a point where I knew I could replicate to perfection the idea I had in my head. The secondary concept factor was to give it a “modular” look like the Thermaltake BMW case had (the original limited stupidly expensive one, not the current one) so that´s why I used a slim HTPC as a base so I could have parts literally coming popping out of the case.
I wanted a clean looking gaming rig. I watercooled it with two rads and kept the color scheme to Black and White. I used Mayhems Pastel White coolant and it reminded me of the White Coolant that ran through the Android in the first Aliens movie. His name was Ash. I modded it so you can not tell that I have a radiator in the top, fill port up there too and the mesh still closes and the original latching mechanisms work. Also reused the top 200mm fan and put it in the front for a push pull on that Phobya Extreme Rad. Also have a full plexiglass side window.
EK Water Blocks has unveiled their latest full-board motherboard water block, the EK-FB ASR Z77 Extreme11. This water block is made specifically for ASRock’s Z77 Extreme 11 motherboard. It is a complete liquid cooling solution for the board as it directly cools the Z77 southbridge (PCH), PLX PEX 8474 PCIe lane splitter, LSI SAS2308 control hub as well as power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module.
What if I were to tell you that there is a tube reservoir on the market that seals without threads cut into the acrylic? Would that be something you would be interested in? Well if so, then today is your lucky day. We are taking a look at the 240mm UV Green PrimoChill Compression Tube Reservoir (CTR), and it is just that.
