This is where IOSS International comes into the picture. They have come up with a small device that keeps the cooling fans running even after the system is shut down. The principle of it is no different to a turbo timer in a car. A turbo timer keeps the engine fans running for a predetermined period of time giving time for the turbo to cool down gradually. The RD7-CA cooling after works just like that, it keeps the CPU fan plus another fan of your choice running for a pre-determined time period once you shut down the system..
There are two versions of this cooler available, namely the big ZM80-HP and the somewhat smaller ZM50-HP. They are the world’s first 100% silent video card coolers with heatpipe technology. The ZM80-HP is designed for high-end video cards such as nVidia GeForce 3 + 4 and ATI Radeon 8500, whereas the ZM50-HP is designed for ATI Radeon 7000, 7200, 7500 and nVidia GeForce2 MX, GeForce4 MX and slower cards. From this point on I will only refer to the ZM80-HP.
Whilst not adding a great deal over the successful KT333 variant, the KT400 is a small step in the right direction. EPoX, quite naturally, decided that a KT400 motherboard was in order. So, without further ado, let's introduce EPoX's latest socket A motherboard. The rather unimaginatively titled 8K9A2+ is that board. Let's now see what it's all about.
