The 5E198B1H3R CopperKing CPU Cooler strays away from traditional
heatsink fin design and features a unique series of 22 triangular folded
fins. The top of each fin has a thin rectangular area removed to allow for
air to be pushed down. Upon closer inspection, each fin is folded very
close to each other with little to no space in some cases in-between the
fins. The overall construction is quite strong and I was unable to bend
any fin with reasonable force.
Antec has built a reputation on high quality cases and computer power supplies. The currently discontinued Antec PP412X was praised by overclockers as “one of the best” because it had adjustable pots to help tweak rail voltages. As an overclocker and enthusiast, I am well aware of the impact of a quality power supply unit. Today I have Antec top of the line power supply to test, the True 550 watt model.
Want to spruce up your case interior with lights? Unlike CCFL, lightstrips are flexible, and produce zero heat. We have a look at the one that started it all, the Tweakmonster Lightstrip, now at revision 3.
"When it arrives, the lightstrip is packaged like a roll of tape. Unrolling it will bring the strip to a length of 2 1/2" , which is far longer than any cold cathode I have seen. Of course, chances are you might not want the unit that long, so it is entirely possible to cut the end of the lightstrip off with a pair of scissors (you tough guys and gals can bite it off like a piece of beef jerky)."
