Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 now have liquid cooling

Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 now have liquid cooling

Now this is "cool." Ugh, that was an awful pun. The Dell XPS 625 and XPS 630 have just gotten a liquid cooling option added to their specs in place of the standard fan-cooling option.

The Asetek liquid cooling system provides for a more even cooling of the processor and makes overclocking a much more versatile possibility for users that really want to get the most out of their systems.

This cooling option also reduces the noise, as there's no loud fan noise to contend with. Since both of these computers include the Intel Core 2 Extreme and are unlocked, making speed boosts much easier, having a stronger cooling option just makes sense. To add the Asetek liquid cooling option, it will cost you nearly $120 extra on top of the $899 and $1,099 priced XPS 625 and XPS 630 gaming towers. The new option will be available by the end of the month.

Gigabyte Radeon HD 4870 gets Zalman GPU cooling in Japan

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.

Cooler Master Cosmos Black bundle gets cooler

Cooler Master Cosmos Black bundle gets cooler

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.

Intel demonstrates new cooling process

Intel demonstrates new cooling process

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 Reactor is constantly cooled

Hardcore Computer Reactor is constantly cooled

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.

CoolIT demo overclocked liquid-cooled HD 4870 X2 on video

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.
