The Thermaltake Armor Revo Snow Edition has taken that formula from the Chaser MK-I and made it better. The Armor Revo Snow Edition provides both slick looks and ultimate functionality. The first thing that you will notice with Snow Edition is the white color and the moving armor panels that border the front bezel. Next, you will see the top I/O panel that contains 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 e-SATA port, 3.5mm jacks, a high/low fan controller, fan LED toggle switch, power/reset buttons, and a HDD docking station. If you turn to the left side panel, there is the headphone hanger (as seen on the Level 10GT and Chaser Mk-I), a big transparent window. Inside, there is room for 4 5.25" ODD drives and 6 3.5"/2.5" drives.
One of the major things that separates the Overseer RX-1, is the amount of internal room of this chassis. Granted, I am using an older but still fairly large AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 video card with an Arctic Cooling Accelero GPU cooler on it, but trying to find a chassis that can easily handle this large video card configuration is darn near impossible. The Thermaltake Overseer RX-1 chassis not only handles this large card with ease, it makes this large video card look tiny once installed into this chassis...
Today, is one of those days when we get to look at something is pretty neat and has something to do with the internal working of a PC. That something is the Genius Ring Presenter. The Ring Presenter is a mouse as well as a presenter for your PowerPoint presentations. Not only that the little booger fits right over your finger and the rest is wireless magic.
Two months have passed since the beginning of this project and the time has come for us to finally to start our usual graphics cards reviews (many of you pointed out the lack of such reviews so here they are). There have been quite a few newly released cards from both NVIDIA and AMD since the last time i performed such a review (almost 5 months ago) and so there are quite a few right now stacked next to our test rig waiting for their turn. One of those is the latest entry-level Radeon HD 7770 iCooler 1GB GHz edition by HIS digital which uses the latest Cape Verde GPU by AMD.
Today sees us taking a look at a G1 board, in the shape of the G1.Sniper M3. A Micro-ATX board that is said to pack a serious punch in terms of features and performance, without skimping out, just because it’s a little bit short compared to other boards on the market. As we never had a chance to look at this board before, like we did with the other boards in preview format, we can start from the very top.
The Frio Extreme is a large twin tower heatsink with two massive 140mm fans and a commanding foot print of 150mm square! Standing 161mm tall and weighing 1.23 kilograms, the Frio Extreme is destined for full tower gaming cases with plenty of room to spare. As you might expect, the Frio Extreme's dual 140mm PWM fans are arranged in a push-pull configuration and scale in speed from 1800-to-1200RPM. Behind each fan is a 110mm tall aluminum fin tower connected by a row of six standard heatpipes to a nickel-plated copper base plate. The twin fans drive up to 106CFM of air each, so the heatsink is a bit loud when running at full clip.
