Today we will be seeing a product that is aimed for the "normal" section of PC users that don't use water cooling to battle against heat and still rely on air cooling: the 3D Rocket II from Gigabyte.

An area that concerns most of the people here is the cooling of their card. More speed means more heat, so companies are trying to find ways to cool down the cards enough to allow them to work efficiently without problems (as much as possible :-P). Users though, have another tendency now. To overclock their cards as much as possible, which that turns out even more heat! Companies are trying to battle that with heat pipes, heat exhaust systems and more airflow.

An old chinese wisemen once told me that a problem that plagues today's computers is the heat produced by the CPU. A little while ago when enthusiasts were on the lookout for a high performance cooler, they had to compromise, and that compromise was to be found in the noise department. Performance and silence didn't belong in the same sentence. If people wanted performance, they usually needed to buy a cooler that would either create a mini cyclone in their case, and most probably, sound like a jet airplane getting ready to take off.

With computers getting faster and faster, the overheating problem is getting more and more common among computer users that dont know how to use or simply can't afford exotic cooling and are still using the basic air cooling approach. Some companies are trying to give a solution to their cooling needs. Some by making performance CPU heat sinks and others by making devices to throw that hot air outside the case.
The CoolerMaster Musketeer 3

The Musketeer 3 is CoolerMaster's foray into the bygone analog era passed. It puts the tube back into your computer, reviving the retro stereophonic sound. The Musketeer 3 is smooth, classy, and well made, but it also comes with a few flaws.
HiS Radeon X600 XT iCooler VIVO review

This is the HiS Excalibur X600 XT Limited Edition, a 220-230 EUR mid-rang product targeted at the mainstream user, it in fact is a PCI Express model. What is PCI-Express you ask ? A new slot that will slowly start to replace the AGP port. The AGP port is at the end of it's life cycle. As you know AGP is now at 8x (2GB/sec), and I know I can't say it like that, but think of PCI-Express in terms of AGP 16x. It's effectively doubling bandwidth from 2 GB/sec towards a bi-directional 4 GB/sec. ATI has a native solution for PCI-Express where NVIDIA will use it's High Speed Interconnect bridged solution to handle the translation from the multiple serial busses to the cards native AGP interface.

It seems that in case modding today, thermal monitoring devices that go to the front of the case, are becoming more and more "of the trend". Those little gadgets get more and more attention for companies that are into case modding producing products with LCD displays, dials and the works. But for those that want to remember the old analog ages or those that want something different, the Musketeer is here.
