How about that Hydro Series™ H70 CPU cooler? Pretty exciting stuff, if you ask me. In case you missed it, Maximum PC had the very first review of the H70 and they gave it their iconic "Kick Ass!" award. "As they did on the old test bed, the H50 and Hyper 212+ performed within a few degrees of each other, keeping the CPU at full burn nearly 32 degrees cooler than the stock heatsink. The H70 brought full-burn temps down to 51 C—five to six degrees cooler than either." Over at [H]ardOCP, Kyle was so excited about the Hydro Series™ H70 CPU Cooler they posted not only an unboxing article, but also posted their initial impressions in an installation article. Their full review should be up shortly, but until then, here's their first impression: "The H70 hoses are the same length as the H50 from what I can tell with one big difference. The H70 hoses swivel at the water block. This of course is going tomake a lot of installations easier without a doubt. So far the H70 is getting the thumbs up from us." I'll wrap this up with another excellent review of our Professional Series™ Gold AX1200 PSU at Hardware Heaven where we received both their Performance and Gold awards. "There was nothing of note to fault; even the selection of bundled cables is perfect. High quality components are used throughout, even down to internal wiring which is cut to exact fits and the design maximises airflow and cooling performance to the point where we can physically notice the improved airflow with cooler exhaust than other models." With all of these new products we're releasing, it's a great time to get out there and upgrade your system. What's your next hardware upgrade? Tell us about it in the comments!
