All my video cards have had after market GPU coolers for better air flow with quieter operation, so does my latest Nvidia with Zalman VF900-cu. The Zalman VF900 is a hybrid VGA cooling combines uniquely heatpipes design with a 90mm fan on its pure copper heatsink. Apparently Gigabyte likes the design; they have teamed up with Zalman, packed its latest ATI Radeon HD 4870 GV-R487D5-1GG with VF-900 looks alike GPU cooler.
Cooler master lets loose of a special edition Cosmos CPU Cooler last week, that was just a teaser; the company has revealed the full plan of a complete Black Label Limited Edition package. With Worldwide availability of only 500 sets intended for limited production, the Black Label will include a pure black Cosmos chassis, a black Hyper Z600 CPU cooler and a black PSU power supply. Each chassis gets a unique laser-etching identity serialized from 1 to 500.
Even though it was announced last month, the Cosmos Black case bundle from Cooler Master just got an addition that is definitely worth mentioning. In fact, it got a HyperZ600 CPU cooler added to the package, which suddenly makes it much more worthwhile.
This new case is, of course, all black and the HyperZ600 CPU cooler is meant to keep the latest high performance processors running cool without drowning you in noise. The cooler itself features a 120mm fan capable of 800 to 2200 rpm. It also has a spacer that goes between the fan and the top of the cooling fins to better channel the air. This also has the benefit of reducing noise greatly.
We don't know what CPUs this cooler would be compatible with, but it does seem to be rather universal. If the HyperZ600 cooler sounds interesting to you, then you should take note that it is only available as a part of the Cosmos Black bundle.
Apple isn't new to filing patents what feels like every other day, but this one really caught our eye. In fact, this recently published patent indicates Apple is delving deeper into their research for new ways to cool their notebook computer systems.
Intel showed off a brand new cooling process today that could put an end to burnt laps from horribly hot notebook computers. In fact, the idea is to make the outside of the notebook cool.
This process is very similar to that used in cooling a jet engine. The laminar jet airflow system pushes away any hot air from the bottom of the case, which is what typically leads to the hot exterior. This way, the laptop could actually stay cool enough to sit in your lap. And you won't need one of those USB fan things, either.
Hardcore Computer creates customized computers that are prepped and primed for optimized performance. So it shouldn't come as a shock that they've come up with a new product meant to improve performance while keeping the heat producing components cool.
The Reactor is a a new computer model designed by Hardcore Computer that keeps the motherboard, CPU, memory, video card and power supplies immersed in Core Coolant, a dielectric fluid that's meant to keep the hot parts cooled off. Not to mention, the Reactor looks like a blue fish tank of sorts, which if you'll pardon the pun, is cool.
The Taiwanese have taken liquid cooling to the next level—a liquid cooling LED light source home theater projector and better yet, it is lamp free. I bet you fewer people heard of Chilin Technology until now. They are a leading ODM/OEM manufacturer and supplier of high end home theater projector in Taiwan. The company has teamed up with Luminus Devices and Texas Instruments to bring you a revolutionary product at CEDIA 2008.
Back when they announced their Dual Drive Bay VGA cooling system for ATI's storming HD 4870 X2, CoolIT CEO Geoff Lyon told us that by using the liquid-cooled setup they'd managed to overclock the video card by over ten percent. We're sceptical by nature here at SlashGear, though, and so CoolIT have released a video demonstrating their setup.
CoolIT is launching the MTEC Docking Station for Intel Core 2 Extreme Mobile processor-based laptops today at IDF. This docking station is more than average, giving a 40 watt cooling boost to your laptop, resulting in a decrease in temperature by 10 degrees.
They may not be the first liquid cooling system for the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 that we've seen - Asetek's setup yesterday beat them to it - but CoolIT's does have the bonus of being marketed to consumers not just OEMs. CoolIT worked with AMD to develop a liquid cooling system that would make overclocking the X2 both straightforward and stable; in fact, they can push the GPU up 13.5-percent, and the memory up by almost the same amount.
