Today's roundup contains a nice mix of reviews and articles covering a variety of topics. Let's get started by checking out a couple of CPU coolers including the Xigmatek Thor's Hammer (reviewed by OCC here) and Cooler Master's Hyper 212+ (also reviewed by OCC here). Both units feature four direct touch heatpipes in a tower design and you can check out the reviews to see how each performs. We also get a couple of looks at AMD 790FX and 785G chipset boards. Of course, we have more for your mid-week reading so check out the rest of the links below.
