Thermalright Ultra-90 K8 CPU Cooler Review @ MTB

Snip: When enthusiasts and overclockers think of high performance CPU air cooling solutions, one name is mentioned quite often in the various forums and modding sites, and that name is Thermalright. With its largely successful line of XP series of coolers Thermalright has taken the lead in the aftermarket CPU cooling race. About a month ago Thermalright introduced two new CPU coolers called the Ultra-90 and Ultra-120 (soon to be released), which are similar in design to the passively cooled HR-01. Both of these coolers use heat pipe technology to transfer heat from the nickel plated copper base to an array of aluminum fins. Full review @ MTB

AMD announces dual-socket enthusiast targeted “4×4” platform

At it’s technology analyst meeting today, AMD announced something rather extreme to fight off Intel’s new ray of light, Conroe. The counter-attack is a new dual socket desktop platform called 4×4 which will allow end-users to run two dual-core socket AM2 processors in tandem. Unlike dual-Opteron motherboards, 4×4 will use mainstream unbuffered DDR2, but will still retain AMD’s Direct Connect architecture, which provides a dedicated channel from each of the CPU cores out to the system memory. The 4×4 name/brand appears to have come about because of the potential to run two dual-core CPUs (the first digit 4) and two dual-GPU video cards (the other digit 4). Those crazy marketing lads at AMD, eh? This new platform is squarely aimed at enthusiasts with deep pockets. While this is not true Conroe competition (too expensive i bet), it does appear that 4×4 will continue to keep alive AMD’s reputation as a company who recognises us enthusiast are important. Nice to know someone cares 🙂

AVC Z7U7414001 AM2 Reference Heatsink @ Frostytech

Snip: Want to know what heatsink AMD rely’s on for its socket AM2 Athlon64 FX and Athlon64 X2 reference platforms? The AVC Z7U7414001 heatsink. While this cooler certainly lacks a catchy name, for an OEM heatsink it packs a big punch in a little package. The AVC Z7U7414001’s thermally responsive fan enables the heatsink to automatically adjust its fan speed as ambient case temperature dictates, thus decreasing noise output as much as possible.
