A new week is here, with new reviews to help get your day started off right.

A new day is here, and if you're looking for a new CPU cooler, you're in luck as today we have both air and liquid models up for review. On the air cooling side there's the Scythe Ashura SCASR-1000, which is a tower-style cooler with a 140mm fan and a 162mm height. For the liquid coolers, we have a roundup of the Asetek 510LC, 550LC, 570LX and 591LX, which are all used in pre-built rigs from CyberPowerPC and iBUYPOWER, or even rebranded by other companies. All four make use of 120mm fans, but while the first two are just a single 120mm radiator, the 570LX is a double radiator, and the 591LX a triple to fit up to six fans in a push/pull setup.

Everyone loves to win prizes, regardless of the type of item up for grabs. Today we have an extremely nice item to win, as our sister site Neoseeker is giving away an ECS LIVA X Mini PC! The LIVA X Mini PC (read the OCC review here)  is a snazzy little device that packs an Intel Bay Trail-M SoC, either 2GB or 4GB of DDR3L RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage, Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI out, VGA out, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, Realtek HD Audio, and is small enough to mount behind a monitor or TV thanks to the VESA mounts. All of this is in something around the size of modern smartphones, which is quite impressive. The LIVA X can run Windows 7, 8.1, and even Linux, so all your OS needs should be met.

The contest runs from now until April 11 and does require Facebook, and is only open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. All you have to do is navigate over to the Neoseeker Facebook post, leave a comment explaining why you should win the LIVA X, and tag both Neoseeker and ECS USA in the comment.

There are just a couple of items to get to on this Thursday, but both should be of interest. We have a review on the OCZ Vector 180 SSD, with all three capacities getting put to the test.
