Thermaltake Launches New GunMet Orb

Thermaltake launches the latest member of its Orb CPU cooler family -- GunMet Orb. GunMet Orb supports Intel CPU socket LGA775 and AMD CPU socket AM2/AM2+/K8.

The radial dissipation design of this new GunMet Orb is claimed to be unique in the cooling industry. The number of cooling fins multiplies as they extend from the center of GunMet Orb to reduce backpressure on the fan and to achieve faster heat dissipation. The 4-croched fin (y-split fin) design can further allow GunMet Orb to maximize its cooling fins up to 140 fins at the end to provide extended cooling surface and smooth airflow.

GunMet Orb uses a 120mm ultra-silent fan outputting only 17dBA to provide the most enjoyable and silent working environment even while your system loaded at full performance. It includes a built-in "White" LED clear fan creating a new fashionable style with the surrounding gunmetal colored fins.

Corsair Announces High-Performance Mac Memory Upgrade Modules

Corsair announced its first high-performance memory modules made especially for the new MacBook and MacBook Pro laptop computers.

Corsair's Mac Memory features special Serial Presence Detect (SPD) profile characteristics, so that Macs can self-configure for optimal performance for critical applications.

Corsair Mac Memory has been benchmark tested on:

  • Adobe Photoshop: Import Video
  • Adobe Photoshop: Photo Compression
  • XBench: Memory Test
  • VMware Fusion: Vista tests
  • Apple BootCamp: Vista tests

According to the press release, testing has demonstrated that as much as a 28% overall system performance improvement is achieved with the new Corsair low latency memory modules versus standard Mac upgrade memory.

Corsair low latency Mac memory modules are immediately available: VSA4GSDSKIT667C4 ~ $159.99 USD MSRP.
