Hardware Roundup: Thursday Edition
Let's see what our affiliates have been up to in the past 24 hours. First up let's jump to yesterday when FrostyTech had a look at the monster Scythe Orochi cooler. Now fast forward back to today where they decide to have a little fun with the Mil-Spec Aerospace Fan on Scythe Orochi Heatsink - Big just got bigger!. If you thought the Vantec Tornado fans were loud, cranking up that fan results in a killer 87.5dBA. Check it out. TechReport has assembled a report on CrossFire X explored that may answer a lot of your question on just what CrossFire X is all about. NVIDIA fans will want to have a look at the Asus Striker II Formula nForce 780i SLI (also reviewed by OCC HERE). Madshrimps is up with a NVIDIA Geforce 8400GS Overclocking Guide. There's more on green cards as TweakTown treats us to the Foxconn GeForce 8800GT OC Graphics Card. After the fun FrostyTech had with the Scythe heatsink, it's back to business with the Auras CTC-868 Heatsink. For a little more exotic form of cooling you can have a look at the CoolIT PURE Liquid CPU Cooler at 3dGameMan. DDR2 is still cranking long and we're seeing more 2x2GB kits like the OCZ Platinum 2x2048MB PC2-8000 over at Overclockers Online. Apple iPhone owners will want to check out the Griffin Elan Form Cork iPhone Case as one way to protect their precious little gem.
