Sunbeam Rheobus II review
We have seen many fan controllers here at The Tech Lounge, and each one has its own pros and cons. Some allow voltages from 7-12v while others let you go down to 5 volts. Some rheobuses, which are supposed to help eliminate noise, sadly produce noise of their own, while others have cheap knobs and other parts. Today, thanks to Silicon Valley Compucycle (SVC), we will be looking at Sunbeam Tech's Rheobus II, which seems to be an end all solution for your fan control needs.

Swiftech MCW50-T Thermoelectric GPU Cooler
While many reviewers might jump right into overclocking the video card, I am going to focus on how to integrate the MCW50-T into a water-cooled PC. I’m guessing that if you’re considering a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) for your graphics processor, you already know a thing or two about overclocking it and might appreciate a little insight on how best to install it

Lian-Li PC-6070 Quiet Case
Only a few select manufacturers offer a signature aluminum case line; Lian-Li being one of them. Just about every mid- tower case in Lian-Li's arsenal is based on the PC-6X chassis design, offering a combination of different features and aesthetics. Over the course of time, Lian-Li has introduced new, fine tuned models based on the PC-60 series. Because of their lightweight aluminum construction, some users have complained about vibrations and systems installed in these enclosures being on the loud side. With this in mind, the emphasis of Lian-Li's latest creation, the PC-6070, is silence

Fortron-Source FSP530-60GNA Power supply
One of the most overlooked items when upgrading is the power supply. Most people just seem to assume that power is power. This is untrue. Your power supply is one of the most important components in your system. Without good quality power, your system can experience power fluctuations that can cause errors and data corruption

Soltek 75FRN2-LR nForce 2 Motherboard
The performance of Soltek FRN2-LR is about the same as the original FRN series, which is almost as fast as the fastest nF2 board. There are some variations in the results but they are within margin of error. By combining this level of performance with an exceptional overclocking potential and integrated SATA raid, Soltek FRN2-LR is one formidable contender in the socketA motherboard market

AMD Barton 2500+
There's plenty of power to spare, and the pricing of the 2500+ is in the vicinity of the 2400+. Given that we did manage a stable 400MHz OC, unless you're the type who prefers running CPUs at stock speed, the 2500+ is the best choice for price and performance
