Where is Your PSU Fan?


I recently had an interesting argument with one of my friends about Power Supplies.  Our argument was about cooling fan size and placement within the power supply.  His argument was that a larger fan is better than a smaller fan.  As enthusiast, we have seen both employed, but for some reason, no standard has been defined.  Are Power supply companies ...

My Laptop is Birth Control?


Every once in a while I run across some information that I find intriguing.  Even less often, I find something useful, but today is not one of those days.  If you haven’t guessed it, I am a geek… and geeks love computers.  Given that there are 13 of them running in my house at any given time I would say ...

Spire Coolers PacificBreeze II – SP302AP-B


Until recently, I have never really been a huge fan of laptops.  I am given one for my company, but until I decided to get married I had no reason to be in the living room.  Now that my time can’t be dedicated to being in my office on my desktop PC, a laptop has become a necessity.  Although they ...

Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II (CL-C0034)

If you haven’t gone through it already, you just might. I spent a bunch of money on motherboards recently and they all seem to be having the same problem. Is it because they just don’t make them like they used to? I am referring to the active cooling on my Northbridge; the fans keep making funny noises then crapping out. ... Read More »

You start your rig up, get to doing some thangs, and realize you ... Read More »

Thermaltake Extreme Giant III

To start I would like to thank Xoxide for sending this cooler for review. The first thing I noticed after seeing the flashy packaging was how heavy this thing is. I really wasn’t expecting a GPU cooler to be this heavy (490 grams). As you can see from the picture the packaging is very attractive and eye catching. My second ... Read More »

Cooler Master Musketeer

In my pursuit of elevating myself to the upper echelons of the geek community, I am always looking for ways to separate myself from my neighbors. This started with my consumption of “extreme” computer components, to windowed cases glowing with bright blue cold cathodes, rheostats, dials, knobs, green fluids, and now; the Cooler Master Musketeer. This is in no way ... Read More »

Vantec Vortex Hard Drive Cooling System

Companies are always trying to get consumers to buy new products aimed at the current “point of concern.” These days, it seems as though cooling and noise is the focal point. Our cases are no longer 1 fan cases that suffer from poor air circulation, our video cards have MONSTER heatsinks on them, our CPU’s are adorned in copper and ... Read More »

UV Reactive Fan Guards

Everyone has their own ideas on how to add their own personal touch to the overall aesthetics of their computer. Some people have windows with neon lights, some have laser etched applique’s, but most of these people still populate their cases with BORING wire fan guards. Why? Who knows, but with the decreasing costs of today’s laser cut fan grills, ... Read More »

Sunbeam Rheobus Kit #2

I’m sitting at my desk in my nice comfortable chair, I have the 5.1 surround sound speakers in the perfect positions, the mouse and the keyboard are primed for fragging, BUT I CAN’T HEAR THE DAMNED GAME because my computer is TOO loud!!! There is a solution that doesn’t require losing fans. I’m not introducing you to a revolutionary product ... Read More »
