Nexus VCT-9000 Heatsink Review
     Mon, Dec 13 2010 | 3:03A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

Frostytech is not going to waste your time by leaving the most important information till the very end of this review - the Nexus VCT-9000 heatsink is an interesting looking thermal solution, but it fails completely in its execution. Nexus have manufactured the VCT-9000 heatsink poorly, resulting in uneven exposed heatpipes that may not contact the processor properly. The heatsink does not perform very well as a result, so the rest is pretty much moot.

Titan Hati TTC-NC15TZ Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech.com
     Sun, Dec 12 2010 | 11:46P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

In this review Frostytech is testing Titan's new Hati TTC-NC15TZ exposed heatpipe base CPU cooler. The TTC-NC15TZ is capable of very good performance results with the supplied 120mm PWM fan operating at full speed, however that trend quickly changes direction once fan speed is brought down for quieter operation...

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech.com
     Sun, Dec 12 2010 | 5:05P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

"Rated for heat loads of up to 200W according to the manufacturer, the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 is a relatively compact sub-130mm tall heatsink. It's 92mm fan utilizes fluid dynamic bearings and a "low noise impeller" design, so once again Arctic Cooling is focusing on quiet... quiet... quiet... The Freezer 13 mostly delivers on the noise front but it's compact design and 92mm diameter - not 120mm diameter - fan limit thermal performance to the 'average' region according to Frostytech's reference charts, even where heatsinks of an identical height are explicitly compared. Computer enthusiasts with compact PC cases will probably like the Freezer 13 though."

Scythe SCRT-1000 Rasetsu Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech
     Fri, Dec 03 2010 | 4:35A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

Scythe's Rasetsu heatsink stands out because of a mixture of acute and obtuse isosceles triangular voids cut into the leading and trailing edges of the heatsinks aluminum fins. It's a technique Scythe label the "Trident Multi Layer Fin Structure" and the point of it is to maximize air intake volume. More on this is a moment, as it's impossible to explain clearly without accompanying photographs...

Glacialtech Siberia Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech.com
     Wed, Dec 01 2010 | 3:50A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"Equipped with two fans, one above the large 122x146mm aluminum cooling fin array and the other below it, the Glacialtech Siberia heatsink packs a lot into a thermal solution that stands just 122mm tall, roughly 145mm square. Six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes support the two differently sized translucent blue fans which hang from ~45 louvered aluminum fins, giving the Glacialtech Siberia a somewhat top-heavy appearance. The heatpipes are packed closely together and covered by copper heatspreader, rather than left exposed."

70 pages, and almost 300 booth babe pictures later its finally completed. There was well over 1500+ pictures to go through as well as editing the video of the ladies dancing, hence the reason it took so long to finish. But if you want to skip everything and go right to the booth babes we will understand. Enjoy the coverage until next year."

OCZ IBIS HSDL Solid State Drive Preview
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we've noted more than once here before, as NAND Flash technologies evolve, SATA will go the way of the dino. It's not going to happen overnight but like its old, spinning hard drive counterpart, the writing is on the wall. The market needs new higher speed interfaces with lower overhead and more direct attachment to native system interfaces. OCZ has been trying its hand at developing PCI Express-based SSDs in an effort to address this requirement. They've been rolling out all new products like their Revo Drive that we looked at recently and the new device we'll be looking at here today. The new OCZ IBIS SSD utilizes a proprietary serial interface that the company has coined "HSDL" for High Speed Data Link and it offers up to 20Gb/sec peak bandwidth over an industry standard SAS connector, which is over three times that of next gen 6Gbps SATA technology. Journey on for all the details and a performance profile of a prototype we've been testing here in the lab...

Editorial: What’s Wrong with the Apple TV?
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Apple, you really let me down. I hope your new OS update will include something that people want and will set you apart. Maybe include Hulu access and playback, or at least being able to watch the network streams of current shows instead of trying to gouge viewers by charging $1 for the latest episode of Glee…you know the same episode that I can watch for free anytime with a browser and laptop. I don’t even like the Apple TV remote as it doesn’t have TV volume, mute, or power so now I have to have my hands on at least two remotes when I'm watching a movie..."

Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 64GB Flash drive is certainly the fastest USB Flash drive that we have ever seen Kingston bring to the market. The move to SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is certainly a welcomed addition to the market and we are very happy to see Kingston enter the USB 3.0 market for the very first time. As more companies enter the USB 3.0 market space it is only to increase competition and that, in turn, drives innovation up and usually pricing down. We hope this will be just the first of many more USB 3.0 products that we see from Kingston this year..."
