  1. Alpenfohn Panorama review

    Alpenfohn Panorama review

    7  

    It takes the classic low-profile design that can still fit into a slimline PC case and yet provide efficient high-performance cooling without excessive noise levels. Its main problem is that it has some fine competition the classic Zalman Super Flower Cooler is still one of the best on the market or the more recent Scythe Shuriken with its full 120mm fan is another.

    With no less than five temperature probes and five fan controllers the NZXT Sentry LXE sets itself up to be the environmental control centre for your PC.

    Bitfenix's new case is more modest than the Colossus (but what isn't?)

    Spire Thermax Eclipse II review

    10  

    Intriguingly, the first batch of Spire's Thermax Eclipse II CPU cooler hit online retailers in the wrong packaging. We mention this because we received one of these, and were a little confused as to which it was. A squint at Spire's website sets the record straight, since the Eclipse II has black nickel-coated fins, something that immediately separates it from the sea of silver aluminium you're faced with when you browse CPU coolers on any etailer's site, and those looks will definitely appeal to people with a windowed chassis.

    It's fair to say that a test bench isn't the first thing the majority of the population's wish list of computer hardware. However, to a small minority of people hiding away in darkened room testing lots of motherboards or graphics cards, or torturing a CPU within in a inch of its life through overclocking, they're a very useful tool. Well, they're certainly better than just using the top of the motherboard box to test on.

    BitFenix Colossus review

    BitFenix Colossus review

    9  

    The BitFenix Colossus looks like a formidable gaming case, and anyone in the market for a chassis capable of building a rig to be reckoned with should sit up and take notice. There's a lot of competition in the market for the best gaming PC cases, with Corsair and CoolerMaster ruling the roost with some amazing sub-£100 chassis.

    Would you trust a 1,000W PSU named after a racetrack? 80Plus silver certification and Nvidia SLI compatibility does not guarantee a great result

    For budget SLI-ready capabilities this non-modular, 650 Watt PSU sounds ideal, but can it deliver the bang?

    Antec has been putting PSUs together forever, so surely you can't go wrong with this 550 watts, 80Plus Bronze certified, SLI ready model?

    Cooler Master V6 GT review

    Cooler Master V6 GT review

    6  

    Cooler Master's V6 is named after the 'V' pattern of its six heat pipes, and follows on from the well-received V8 and V10 models. The arrangement is supposed to help spread the heat about better than other designs where the heat pipes are in a neat row, and Cooler Master has the thermal images to prove it.
