Keeping your processor cool is vital if you want to see how high you can overclock, and that's where Noctua's NH-U12S comes in. It's a little bit smaller cooler than you may be use to, but it's designed to fit in any system, even if there are tall memory heatspreaders. We have a look at the LSI 9300-4i4e SAS PCIe 12Gb/s HBA card, which is a host bus adapter card to provide plenty of high-speed storage to servers and workstations. If all you need is a new gadget to play around with, then the Sony Xperia Z Ultra could be for you. It's a 6.4" device that's not quite a tablet and not quite a smartphone (a phablet, in other words), yet uses the Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 SoC to deliver a powerful experience.
