Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Thermaltake Silent 1156 CPU Heatsink - Thermaltake Silent 1156 CPU Heatsink
Tue, March 16 2010 | 9:03AM | PermaLink Feedback?
As computers get more and more powerful with each advance in computing technology, it is inevitable that the thermal envelope is continually being pushed to higher levels. For this reason, there will always be a large market for aftermarket CPU cooling. But just when you think only the biggest and loudest coolers can effectively cool the latest and greatest overclocked quad core processors, Thermaltake comes in with the Silent 1156 heatsink (Yes, that's literally the name). As its name suggests, this cooler is designed for Intel's relatively recent LGA1156 socket, and is a claimed to be silent alternative to the stock cooler provided by Intel in a retail packaged CPU. This tower style cooler features two 8mm heatpipes leading away from the base, as well as an included 92mm cooling fan over its array of heatsink fins. It is priced at a mere $29.99 at press time, and targeted at users who are into silent computing -- those who are dissatisfied with the noise generated from the little Intel heatsink -- but do not wish to spend a lot of money for an aftermarket unit. Generally speaking, Thermaltake aims to provide the user with the Silent 1156 as an alternative low noise CPU cooling solution without breaking the bank. We will be testing this product today to see if it is really a viable alternative and holds its own against the competition, and whether it can handle the our Intel Core i7-860 within a reasonable range of temperatures. Are you better off saving your money and sticking with the stock cooler, or should you grab this heatsink as soon as you finish this reading this review? Well... continue reading to find out!

Thermaltake BlacX 5G USB 3.0 Hard Drive Docking Station Review  - Thermaltake BlacX 5G USB 3.0 Hard Drive Docking Station Review
Wed, December 22 2010 | 4:02PM | PermaLink Feedback?
“Hard drive docking stations started to appear more frequently about 2 years ago. A hard drive dock is something every system builder and most computer users should have. So often people need to get information off a hard drive and what easier way to do that than with a hard drive dock. The hard drive dock really has not changed that much, but with the introduction of USB 3.0 you are now able to get even faster speeds from hard drive docks. Today we will be taking a look at the BlacX 5G USB 3.0 Hard Drive Docking Station from Thermaltake."
