CoolMAX 550W Aluminum PSU Review
OCA takes a look at the powerful 550w Aluminum Triple Fan w/ LED PSU today. With hardware and case mods requiring more and more power these days, these hefty sized PSU's are a must. Lets take a look.

"After promptly voiding my warranty, we get to see the inner workings of this beast. Cool Max definitely is taking cooling the unit seriously. The temperature probe is located underneath the gold heatsink, and the fan controller is located at the bottom right hand side of the heatsink. You can just make out the fan connector for the intake fan located on the cover of the unit. This is a nice touch if you ever wanted to swap out fans at a later date."

Alright, now, you got yourself a nice spanky alloy case. A nice window panel with neon tube, LEDs case fan and those colourful IDE round cable. But, something still amiss! That's right, is your optical drive's face plate that badly needs a fix

Review : ABITs Siluro GeForce4 Ti4200 128MB OTES
The board of the card is a greenish blue. The first thing you notice about the card is the big piece of plastic right in the middle. This is known as the OTES cooling system. OTES stands for Outside Thermal Exhaust System. Abit has developed this as a way to efficiently cool the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). The plastic cover forms a vacuum-sealed environment whose pressure removes heat from the board. There is a fan that intakes air from the top and keeps the air flowing. This cooling setup proves to work extremely well, which in turn, enables the card to be overclocked highly above the stock speeds
