OCAddiction is relaunching their site. To top things off they have 2 reviews for us, they check out the Antec Performance Plus 1080. It's a great case here's their review.

The name Antec has become synonymous with great cases. Their reputation in the gaming and enthusiast community has been earned by providing a quality product with good cooling and lots of space. The Plus1080 case boasts all of these features. The power supply is Antec’s TruePower 430 watt offering. It has 2 ball bearing fans on the bottom and rear for good cooling and reliability. The power supply controls the speed of the case fans through temperature monitoring and has a separate power lead for the fans. It also features 4 external 5.25" drive bays, 2 external 3.5" drive bays, and 4 internal 3.5" drive bays. All of the 3.5" bays are actually cages that have quick release levers for easy removal and installation. The case comes with 3 80mm cooling fans with options for 2 more. The placement of the fans is nice. There are 2 at the rear of the case near the processor and the video card, and 1 in the easy to open side panel that blows directly on the video card. The 2 optional mounts are located at the front of the case. One is actually integrated into the lower hard drive cage and the other is at the very bottom. All mounts, except that in the side, utilize snap in fan mounts for easy insertion and removal.

They also have a Socket A HSF Roundup.

Unfortunately, stock heatsinks these days will no longer carry out the job. When it comes to overclocking, better and more massive heatsinks are a must. It is even better to choose copper because of its heat dissipation capabilities. Sure enough the Swiftech MCX462 and the Alpha PAL8045 are the best choices to cool your hot T-birds or palominos or T-breds, but not everyone can fork out the cash needed for those babies. Today we have a look at a roundup of affordable heatsinks from well respected heatsink manufacturers and see if they’re adequate for your overclocking needs.
