It's roundup time folks and we found some treats for you this morning. We'll start off with the daily collection of video card reviews. Fudzilla gets us started with a factory-overclocked offering and finds the MSI's red 9600 GT faster than reference design. Not only that, but the card features a new quiet cooling design using a Seaweed-Blade fan. Hit the link for more information. Going from red to green, we find the Gigabyte GV-NX88T512HP GeForce 8800 GT at HotHardware that utilizes a Zalman cooler (you can also find OCC's review HERE). PCSTATS reviews the Palit Geforce 8800GT Super+ 1GB Videocard and finds the extra memory does give this card an edge in some of the tests. The next item is not really a review, but Overclocker Cafe did post some pictures of the NVidia GeForce 9800 GX2. Look Ma - no fans! MetkuMods has a new project involving a 100% passively cooled enclosure with Project: Passive. PCApex has some interesting results as they take the Feser One & Feser Aqua Non-Conductive Coolants and pit them against two other products as well as a home brew solution. The high-end Coolermaster Cosmos S ATX Case gets a thorough shakedown from Madshrimps today. With 99A on the 12V rail, the GIGABYTE ODIN Pro GE-MK20A-D1 1200w PSU from TweakTown is one monster power supply that should be able to power anything you throw at it. Stick around for the Patriot Memory PC2-6400 4GB LL DDR2 Kit also from TweakTown. Overclockers Online has the Samsung YP-P2 digital audio player up for review. Could this be a worthy alternative to the iPod Touch? Tech ARP has updated their Desktop CPU Comparison Guide. ThinkComputers returns with another bag review as they examine the Targus Grove Convertible Messenger/Backpack. We'll end the roundup with TweakNews and their look at the Microsoft Reclusa Gaming Keyboard.
