When I got the box I was once again reminded how small this cooler is. A total height of ONLY 37mm (1,46 inches) and a total footprint of 95mm by 95mm, which complieswith Intel’s LGA115x “keep out zone”. You shouldn’t have any issues with fitting tall RAM modules with large heatsinks.

Dreamhack Winter 2012 is coming up, and OCmodshop is going to be there! I will try and give you a quick look into “the” world’s BIGGEST LAN-Party.
We are going to give you all a grand tour of the latest sockets and their most compatible processors. It makes building a new gaming or work rig so much easier if you don’t have to return a motherboard or processor for a refund and order a new one.
Western Digital’s MyPassport 1TB hard drive could be the answer you’re looking for. Not only does it offer a ton of storage, but comes in a small form factor and is equipped with USB 3.0 technology.
I’m not sure why, but I’m such a sucker for the mATX format when it comes to computing. I say I’m not sure why because I don’t have an mATX system, nor do I have a need for one, but it doesn’t stop me from being interested in the layout. For years we saw companies [...]
As you point your browser to OCmodshop, you may have noticed something different… Well, it’s more of a complete overhaul. This update has been a long time coming, as I have been planning changes for over two years, and never had the balls to just get it up and going. I was worried about the [...]
SuperSpeed USB (otherwise known as USB 3.0) is a new standard for PC peripheral connectivity. Although Intel has been hesitant to make this interface truly standard, more and more vendors are including the technology on their motherboards, and you can even purchase add-on cards to upgrade your current system. The increase in data transfer naturally [...]
Now that we are all out from under the watchful eye of the IRS and have successfully cashed our income tax checks, it’s time to put some of that stimulus money back into the economy. I was nice to myself and bought a few creature comforts. A new hi-def, and Xbox 360, and some cushy [...]
I couldn’t think of a better game to review on the eve of Halloween than one based on torture devices and cringe-inducing deaths at the hands of the infamous Jigsaw killer. Zombie Studios and Konami, the marvelous guys behind Silent Hill, have brought the Saw series to life in the third-person survival horror game SAW. [...]
Say storage and people immediately think of a hard or flash drive…tape…optical media. In other words, bit buckets to hold your digital stuff. Until that inevitable fateful day. Like ours… First, the 2TB drive on your office server won’t boot up. It’s dead. Ten skilled people sit on their hands, wondering how they’re going to [...]
Coolermaster has a reputation in the world of hardware cooling. They are well known for their excellent heatsinks and water-cooling devices. I’ve used several of their products over the years and have rarely been disappointed. The old saying goes that you get what you pay for, and with Coolermaster, even if you feel you are [...]
The word heatsink has always been one of those unusual words that doesn’t quite fit what it actually is. Let’s break it down. Heat is a form of energy associated with the motion of atoms or molecules and capable of being transmitted through solid and fluid media by conduction, convection or radiation. To sink is [...]
I’ve been an emulator buff for a while, but generally emulators seem to only work well after the console has been off the market for several years. Well, I found a Wii emulator that not only works, but works rather well. The games I tried on it work very well with little sound or graphical [...]
Admit it. You missed Steve opening WWDC (Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference). You missed him walking out at the end of Phil Schiller’s keynote where Steve walks from behind the curtain and says , “One more thing!” There was no colored water to dazzle folks. No one sat down on the chair, whipped off the shoes and [...]
Technology moves so quickly that almost everyone has analog (tape) and digital video they want to save and enjoy. Even with today’s low-cost, high quality cameras and ubiquitous camphones is that the results are usually less than great viewing quality. Unless you’re carrying a bank of photo lights around the video is usually a little on [...]
We here at OCMS have reviewed several products from our European pals at Noctua and I was very pleased to hear they contacted me again for some new products up for review this time is the “Noctua NH-C12P” CPU cooler. Ding dong! Oh, Jolly! The frigging mail dude arrived with a nice big package that [...]
Ever have that feeling that someone with a Heavyweight title just put you in a coma? And when you awoke from that coma everything you thought you knew was no longer a reality? That was the same way I felt when I realized how bad Intel was kicking the crap out of AMD’s booty all [...]
Everywhere I go, I see people with iPods. They started with less than 1GB of space, went up to 2GB and 4GB, and then there were rumors roaming the web about an astoundingly huge 30GB version… with video. And now we have an 80GB version that has music, movies, games, internet, and just about anything [...]
