Computex 2008 Wrap-Up

Cooling and Power Supplies

A large number of cooling and case companies were at the show this year. Thermaltake, Thermalright, ArticCooling and many others showed off some very innovative products.

Thermalright's HSC 601 case

One Thermalright case even had a radiator panel take up an entire side of the case. The product was an integrated full-fledged water cooling system that moved water through a large radiator to dissipate heat. The product was very unique among all the other water cooling products we saw, which took advantage of the large size of the chassis.

ArcticCooling displayed a number of unique products, but one that caught our attention was a system designed to cool your RAM modules. The ArcticCooling RAM cooler, aptly named, looked like a beast and edging on outrageous. Overclocking enthusiasts that tweak every part of their systems however will appreciate the new product.

CWT's 90Plus Power Supply

In the power supply department, CWT or Channel Well Technology took top honors by introducing power supplies with 90% power efficiency. The great thing about CWT is that it is the primary OEM for several popular power supply vendors so we can definitely expect to see newer 90% units from your favorite companies fairly soon.

    A review with half of the review just pictures of booth babes is just stupid. This just shows what immature people are being allowed to write articles for Tom's. I thought this was an electronic review site, and not an adult site. Tom's has been slipping for years. This is the highlights they came back with from the show? I think they need to fire the people that where sent, and get mature people who look more at the new electronics and less at the booth babes. If you want to take pictures of the booth babes for your own, keep them to yourself and friends. They do not need to show up in a review.

    You wanna know what I think MJBatson?
    I think you're just butthurt because you haven't gotten your AMD 48xx series benchmark fix.

    However, I think hexus got way better coverage then toms this time around... toms is getting lame lately.
    Still you're overreacting.

    First; just because a word passes a spellcheck does not mean its the correct word. Edit your frickin articles! Second, if I want a bunch of softcore picts of Asian chicks, I'll Google it. Stick to technology and leave the softcore bs to car shows and search engines.

    And yes, I realize my grammar probably sucks. But I'm not trying to run a website or write news articles.

    Tom's has yellow fever?
  • ^ this is crap the nehalem is running past 4 ghz? that doesn't mean sh*t to me... I wish it had a lower clock speed and that performance... I heard it was at 2.66 ghz... but if its past 4 ghz... that seems like crap... even though it is still much faster... it would have had a much larger impact if the ghz was less

    Ya This time Surely Tom's has missed the Coverage... They were busy clicking Booth Babe Photos Under Proper Lighting than the Actual Hardware around there...

  • nukemaster
    I have to say, for a hardware site the coverage did suck this time around. I fully agree with those above.
  • OK, maybe they exaggerated a bit with the boothbabes in this article, but if you don't like it, you can skip the pages. For the future it will be best if TH will make a special article with the boothbabes and update it as they make more pictures. That way everybody will be happy. I'm sure the boothbabes article will be read as much as the rest.

    I don't want more ugly babes.
