Power Supply Roundup: Part II
Home theater PCs should be as quiet as possible. Since most of the noise is caused by the fans on the CPU and power supply, we tested two passive power supplies that use no fans.
MSI is showing high-end motherboards using Intel's X48 chipset.
MSI unveiled two new motherboards based on Intel's P45 chipset at CeBIT
Double vision - Thermaltake's DuOrb cooler and a grown-up V1
Samsung is introducing a number of OLED displays and since they can do without backlighting, they are extremely thin and impress with excellent colour rendition.
Gigabyte is expanding its line of power supplies into the Kilowatt range. The ODIN Pro and ODIN GT series now include models offering up to 1000 and 1200 Watts.
Gigabyte, more commonly known for its motherboards and graphics cards, is presenting a water cooling solution for RAM modules, dubbed Cool Rain.
Samsung's new SP-P400B LED projector is not only very light, it also consumes very little power.
Q1 Ultra Premium: Samsung's Ultra Mobile now contains a Core 2 processor running at 1.5 GHz.
Samsung is presenting the world's largest television set with Ultra-High-Definition resolution. This behemoth of a TV offers a breathtaking resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.
The higher the CPU frequency, the higher the heat dissipation. Cheap CPUs ship with simple coolers that aren't suited to overclocking.
We're back again with six more cooling products, rating cooling performance, noise and ease of installation.
Keep cool! That's what CPU coolers are there for. 45 % of our candidates fail our test. We uncover weaknesses and expose false promises.
In Part 3 we focus on the hardware for the solar arrays used to generate power for our PC. We fretted over every half-watt to obtain the longest possible up time even on cloudy or rainy days.
Windows Vista offers more than just a pretty user interface with transparent window effects. You want to know all about Vista, and so did we. Here's what we found.
