Hardware Roundup: Tuesday Edition

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.
