Steve’s Holiday Gift Picks
The smart phone and mobile hardware reviews editor, Steve, threw us a curveball with his holiday pick by not choosing a smart phone. Either that or he is planning on some extreme overclocking of his current smart phone!
Corsair Hydro Series H100 Liquid CPU Cooler – $109.99 USD (with MIR)
The H100 is a sealed loop water cooler that pairs a dual 120mm radiator with a water block via hoses. The unit is filled with liquid and sealed at the factory such that it should never need to be refilled. The H100 is their latest model, and the successor to the H50 and H70 lineage.
There have been many advances in the liquid cooling market this year to include several consumer-level, self-contained liquid CPU coolers from the likes of Coolit Systems, Asetek, and Corsair to name a few. One of our favorite picks in this arena is Corsair’s H100 that uses a massive 240mm radiator and two 120mm fans to support enthusiasts and overclockers. Fan speeds are adjustable from 1,300 to 2,600 RPMs when you need more performance during gaming, transcoding HD video, and overclocking.
