Hardware Roundup: Tuesday Edition

Nemo - September 1, 2009 05:04AM in Affiliate News

In today's roundup we'll start off by checking out a pair of CPU coolers. The DeepCool Killer Whale heatsink features six 6mm heatpipes mated to a solid copper base. The Kingwin Kingwin XT-1264 (also reviewed by OCC here) uses four 6mm heatpipes in a direct touch design. Both heatsinks use a 120mm fan for cooling, so which one is the better performer? We'll let you decide by checking out the reviews for yourself. In storage we get a look at the Thecus M3800 Stream Box designed for both media storage and playback duties.
