Maintaining a balance between cool and quiet can sometimes be a delicate task when it comes to high-performance computers and that's where a fan controller such as the NZXT Sentry 2 touch-screen unit (reviewed by OCC here) comes in handy. The Evercool Buffalo CPU cooler has been upgraded since OCC reviewed it earlier this year (here) so that it now fits LGA1366 Core i7 CPUs. Today's roundup also includes reviews on a pair of HD 4770 graphics cards from PowerColor and XFX. You can check out the rest of the reviews using the links below.
