Intel's Haswell-based CPUs have a unique cooling problem that leaves many overclockers in a quandary. Today, we're rounding up nine different sink and fan combinations to see if any can contend with the fourth-gen Core processor's copious heat.
SilverStone has released its updated SG06 enclosure, this one coming without a PSU and with upgraded USB 3.0.
Last week we previewed the first four mainstream gaming cases in our 11-way sub-$100 round-up. Now we get to build four systems and test them. What other features will we uncover along the way, and how will they affect thermal and acoustic performance?
Silverstone released a thin form factor Blu-Ray drive, which is no different from the alternatives except that it is slot-loading.
So you like our System Builder Marathon? Ever come up with your own idea for a killer rig? Don't forget to tell us about it on the Tom's Hardware forums. The following ten setups were configured by forum members and chosen in Q1 2013 BestConfigs Poll.
The advantage of a small enclosure is that it doesn't take much to passively cool it. Rather than having heatsinks inside the enclosure, the enclosure itself can be the heatsink. Many manufacturers have caught on to this, including Silverstone.
Part three of our quest for quiet gaming brings us three final enclosures from Lian Li, Nanoxia, and SilverStone. Have we finally found the perfect product to silence a noisy graphics card? We’ll find out by comparing all nine contenders in today's piece.
The power supply typically isn't the noisiest component in a high-end PC. Nevertheless, many folks are serious about cutting noise, and go the extra mile for a quiet system. We step in with a comparison of two silent models against one low-noise PSU.
We've already given you a pictorial walk-through of cases six through 10 of our 15-chassis round-up. Today, we build PCs inside of them, evaluate their value, and pick one as the most likely to satisfy your needs (though several excel in other ways).
Offering extensive features and unique design options, the five mainstream gaming enclosures in today's story deserve an in-depth look before we launch into our review, comparing them all. And remember, this is just one part of our 15-chassis round-up!
We saw a lot of weird cases at Computex, but there was also a ton of more conventional looking cases that focused more on function than form. Silverstone had two such cases at its booth, the Raven 4 and the FT04.
Welcome to Part 1 of Tom's Hardware's 2011 Holiday Gift Guide. This first installment is geared toward system builders planning to pool some Christmas cash to build a new performance- or value-oriented system. We have something for everyone this year.
The most hardcore gamers use multiple graphics cards in CrossFire and SLI configurations. And yet, slinging dual-slot cards together eats up a lot of expansion space. We compare five eight-slot cases with room for complex graphics configurations.
