Introduction. Mini ITX based cases are rare and scarcer still are a product that uses the former standard but has a look of quality too. This form factor is becoming a vast standard for not only Home Theatre-based solutions, but one for serious web surfing and even gaming. The reason for this is that one […]
Introduction Over the past year water cooling ‘ready’ cases have come along at a steady pace and have now started to evolve into a viable entity in their own right. Not long ago a water cooling ‘ready’ chassis was in reality a case with two holes drilled in the back and that was the […]
Introduction Headphones come in all shapes and sizes these days, from the small in-ear type to the gigantic DJ-Style models. However with the former some people (ourselves included) take exception, as obnoxious CHAV’s on the bus will blast the occupants of the aforementioned vehicle out with ‘their’ version of music. Whilst one […]
Introduction Small form-factor motherboards are not by any means a new thing on the market, however the price of these have refused to go down in recent years. The latter is the most important factor as users whom purchase smaller motherboards refuse to pay the same price as the larger standards. If for […]
Introduction There are a great many headphones in the world today, ranging from the budget range that sounds akin to a myriad of peas in a tin (whilst being violently shaken) to that of the ear drum rupturing kind. Being a self confessed audio boffin this reviewer likes to check out these sort […]
Introduction Ten years ago the only chassis that a water cooling enthusiast could purchase off-the-shelf was a Mountain Mods U2UFO case. However this company was based in the USA and one had to pay an over inflated delivery charge and a worrying issue that all the panels were packed in cling film.. yes you heard […]
Facebook the social networking site that we all know and love, parodied by many in comedy shows such as the cult hit the ‘I.T Crowd’ with the Friend Face’ scenes. However there is a darker side to the aforementioned that is just coming into light by the worlds media and that is the word’ […]
Extreme Performance Starts Here Taipei, Taiwan – 24/09/2013 –Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator and manufacturer of desktop components and more, today proudly launches the newest addition the ultimate line of premium cases, COSMOS SE.
For those whom have not read the previous article on this subject. Today saw the Target Components Open day with many manufacturers showing off their wares and engaging with the I.T resellers throughout the land of Blighty. Some have even driven as far as Cambridgeshire in order to attend this prestigious event. After the high […]
Next up on our trip of the Target Open day we the arrive at the Cooler Master stand, of which dominates one side of the room and is easily the largest stand within the exhibition hall. So with a drooling mouth and beady eyes we take a visit and see what they have to […]
As processors obtain faster speeds with each generation then it usually brings a greater amount of heat-due to the limitations of the silicon itself. Many manufacturers have self-proclaimed ‘their’ processor cooling fans to be the best in a myriad of environments and being able to do so quietly. This is by no means an easy feat when it has to fit a number of differing motherboard and system configurations. Getting the right combination of cooling and noise can be very difficult to get right. One such manufacturer whom believes that they have the right combination is Raijintek with their new product, the rather unusually named Tsis.
Processor coolers are all the range, ever since the invention of the Personal Computer, with increments between heatsink models being small at best. As a result we are coming towards the end of the ‘S-Curve’ with reference to this product and the only difference now is fan blade design and price point. The real trick is to provide a reasonable product at a low price as to entice those ever-increasing performance hungry enthusiasts. The latter would mostly likely adopt a liquid solution, in order to satisfy their requirements, however this comes at a much higher cost.
Mini ITX based cases are rare and scarcer still are a product that uses the former standard but has a look of quality too. This form factor is becoming a vast standard for not only Home Theatre-based solutions, but one for serious web surfing and even gaming. The reason for this is that one could simply hide the chassis in a cupboard so that to keep the home decor looking constant, instead of having a great big black box in the living room/bedroom. So given this information and convenience Mini ITX is starting to become the factor of choice for style-savvy home users. Lian Li looks set to appeal to this trend by releasing the ‘PC-Q30′ range of chassis, so without further aplomb let is take a look into their world of small form factor chassis.
According to Lian Li, they do not just have a Mini ITX case, but they have the most outrageously best looking one too.
Over the past year water cooling ‘ready’ cases have come along at a steady pace and have now started to evolve into a viable entity in their own right. Not long ago a water cooling ‘ready’ chassis was in reality a case with two holes drilled in the back and that was the extent of it. We at Overclockers Tech embarked on a mini-crusade of-sorts in order to get the manufacturers to produce a TRUE water cooling case that did not cost in the region of £300. If the aforementioned chassis are unable to install at least a 240mm based radiator along with its fans internally then it is simply not water cooling ready. Drilling two holes in the back will not fool review sites and it certainly does not fool the most important element of all and that is the consumer.
Water Cooling over the last couple of years, as any enthusiast will tell you, was in danger of becoming stagnant. Very few companies, if any, were truly innovating and the ones that were making changes, were only making minor changes at best. Essentially there were only three radiator companies manufacturing products world-wide. This being Black Ice (in the Philippines) Thermochill (in the United Kingdom) and finally the massive company in China that produces all the rest, such as the XSPC and Magicool products.
Headphones come in all shapes and sizes these days, from the small in-ear type to the gigantic DJ-Style models. However with the former some people (ourselves included) take exception, as obnoxious CHAV’s on the bus will blast the occupants of the aforementioned vehicle out with ‘their’ version of music. Whilst one in theory would find no problem with this, however to the rest of the us whom do not have our ears blocked up with ‘candle wax’ the previously mentioned phones sound much akin to that of a myriad of dried peas being shaken up and down in a tin.
