Taking a look at the heatsink, it is completely copper. This is an upgrade from the Volcano 9's copper core. The fins of the heatsink are very thin, which helps with heat dissipation, but they are soldered onto the plate. Sometimes when a heatsink is built this way, there are gaps between the fins and the plate. This usually results in below average cooling. Lets hope the Volcano 11 is built well.
The Syncmaster 241MP is the newest addition to Samsungs strong and versatile MP series. The target audience for this particular unit would most likely be someone such as myself who spends long days in front of their computers and would either like to also enjoy video/TV at the same time, or for the audience who would also like to use their TV as a monitor, of course Its also ideal for those just looking for a great quality large TFT LCD monitor/TV.
In an attempt to make water cooling more accessable to the masses, Swiftech created an easy to install kit that is made up of their latest products. Will performance be equal to the sum of its parts?
"Performance-wise, we were quite happy with it. There are cooling setups that perform better (such as Swiftech's own Q-Power), but they don't offer the ease of use the H20-8500 has. A larger radiator and perhaps a reservoir would have improved performance, but it would defeat the purpose of the kit, which is to be compatible with most cases, be easy to install, and be very quiet."
When one thinks about Thermaltake, usually the first thing to come to mind is high performance cooling. Products like the Orb Series, the Volcano 7 and 9, and the GF4 Cooler, have ranked among the best cooling products. Today we’ll be looking at a product from another side of Thermaltake, something that has absolutely nothing to do with cooling, the Thermaltake Xview.
