3D PROFESSOR STEPPED out of his 3D world, and decided to review a cooler. But this time, this is no ordinary cooler, but rather Akasa’s latest fling, the REVO cooler. We have written about this part here, but now Professor D.Sc. M.Sc. MVS.c B.Sc. BVS.c FMiLM. MOISH. AEMT. Brian (yes, these titles are included in every e-mail ;) came up with a review of the actual product. Quite an interesting concept, we might add.
Staying in tune with CPU cooler reviews, Ryan from PC Perspective reviewed Zalman Reserator XT, hybrid water-cooling system. Reserator has an interesting meaning in Balkan part of the world if the letter “P” is applied before the first letter, but Zalman deserves all the credit for delivering a very innovative cooling setup under this name. This one fits nicely with a PC in a Small Form Factor form, with components being cooled by nothing else but waterblocks.
Second review of Zalman equipment (this hasn't happen for quite a while, two reviews from this Korean manufacturer at the same day) is Z-Machine GT1000, quite an interesting enthusiast case. We do not agree with Paul's rip into Fatal1ty though. We actually need to have mainstream-media friendly progamers such as mr. Wendel, but hey, that's just my 2 cents.
Guys from IT-Review.net made a review of Gainward GeForce 8600GT 256MB HDMI, another Nvidia model that brings the support for this hot connector in CE space.
Tweaktown tested Biostar GeForce 8600GTS V-Ranger, a GTS board sporting interesting overclocking parameters like overclocking and overvolting GPU and video memory. Yes, we mentioned tampering with voltages. Only sad part is that every time TT guys send an e-mail, original link sports html tags such as http://mailbot.tweaktown.com/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi/r/TweakTown_News/h/20071002044319.
Hardware Secrets came up with a list of all models bearing Athlon 64 moniker, and the list is quite a long one.
For those high on improving German skills, or wanting to read Google's engineered translation, PC-Treiber.net published a review of Biostar T-Force TF560 A2+, a very interesting and affordable motherboard based on not so often mentioned nForce 560 chip(set).
For the end, we leave you with a preview of StarCraft 2. We usually don't link to a software preview, but you can bet that this game will sell quite a lot of gaming hardware.
