The V+ 200 is offered in several different size variations including: 60GB, 90GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB. The drive takes advantage of a SandForce SF-2281 controller that has made a big name for itself over the past year and a half.

In this review Frostytech is testing out the Coolermaster Gemin II S524, a top-down heatsink that stands only 105mm tall and weighs a modest 594grams. Height is one of the other advantages of top-down coolers, this model is a good 50mm shorter than the average tower heatsink! The Coolermaster Gemin II S524 is compatible with Intel socket LGA1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1 processors. The Gemin II S524 ships with a 120mm PWM fan mounted to its frame, but has holes to accept a 140mm fan in its place as well.
Testing CPU Coolers may not really be a hard thing to do but as many of you know it does take time to remove the old one, clean old thermal paste remains, place new on the CPU and install the cooler you want to test. Because of that i always like to have as many CPU Coolers as possible for testing so i can avoid having to go through the same lengthy procedure every few days. Yesterday i uploaded a review about the best CPU Air Cooler currently, the Silver Arrow Extreme by Thermalright and as you can imagine it was one out of many units lined up for testing. Usually i don't really like to upload two reviews about the same hardware type one after the other but since i consider this review as a bit special a made an exception. So today we will be covering one of the latest liquid CPU Coolers by Thermaltake, the BigWater 760 Plus.
The NZXT Cryo E40 notebook cooler is one of their entry level releases. The Cryo E40 features some unique designs on an entry cooler. The first nice feature is a special low-powered magnetic clasp design for both the metal mesh top, and the two 80mm fans. The top is easily removed for access to the fans. The 80mm fans can be adjusted to any position under the lid and are powered by a single USB connection. The USB wire can be routed on either the left or right side, allowing adaptation to any laptop configuration. The Cryo E40 features a 4" incline for easy typing ergonomics. The cooler supports up to 15" notebooks and is lightweight and very portable.
With the prices of hard drives slowly coming back to manageable prices, we've seen a trend of new storage "accessories" being released to the market.
