With the recent release of the 64-bit 6XXX series and soon to be released Intel dual core processors, more manufacturers will be focusing their operations on LGA775 cooling as the market becomes flooded with these chips.

Antec VCool

Amongst gamers, one of the most hotly contested computer components are the graphics cards. With each new model come new features or higher clock speeds and performance. Inevitably this also leads to more and more heat, and as we all know, heat is unhealthy for electronic components and needs to be dissipated, otherwise overheating and damage could occur. With these new high-end graphics cards easily exceeding $400-500, it's important to protect your investment. The item up for review today, is unlike any other graphics card cooler we've seen. The Antec VCool offers 100% compatibility with any existing graphics card, as it simply mounts underneath the card in two expansion slots while claiming to lower the card temperature 5 to 15 degrees.

This afternoon, we are venturing a bit into consumer electronics as we take a look at the Transcend JetFlash MP3. Although this may have only a fraction of the storage capacity of a traditional Apple iPod or Creative Labs Zen Micro, its price surely isn't something to cause worry.

D-Link DGL-4300 Gaming Router

Sporting a black shell, blue LEDs, and an 18cm antenna, this is definitely one of the most unique routers we've seen here at Phoronix. Not only is its appearance a head turner, but also the 4-port Gigabit connectivity and 108Mbps 802.11g WiFi support. But will the D-Link DGL-4300 Gaming Router be worth the hefty $170 USD price tag?

Razotech, also in their early months of being an established company, recently released their UFO mouse.
