A Japanese ninja to deal with heat

Japanese Scythe released the new cooler suitable for all CPUs and sockets, Ninja Heatpipe Fanless CPU Cooler SCNJ-1000. The novelty is polished so you modders will be glad to see the reflections on its surface.


  • Latches for any socket
  • "One touch" installation onto Socket478
  • Polished side to CPU
  • 6 heatpipes (output from both sides)
  • 110x110x150mm dimensions
  • 665g weight
  • Bundled latches for a 120mm fan
  • MSRP of $50

Note that the vendor recommends additional 120mm fan for high-performance CPUs anyway. Note that cooler design fits into the new BTX layout and corresponds to the correct internal airflow.

The first watch made of electronic paper

E Ink together with Seiko Epson and Seiko Watch introduced the first watch featuring display made of E Ink´s "electronic paper".

The novelty is capable of displaying information along almost the entire surface. At the same time the display consumes a reasonable amount of energy and doesn´t require often battery replacements. Other features of E Ink/Seiko "paper watch" are:

  • High image contrast, readable in broad daylight or dusk
  • Thin flexible display
  • Low energy consumption: backlight not required, "memory effect" for longer time displaying

Seiko is going to launch sales of its watch in Japan in about a year.
