Fractal Fan Controller, the Adjust108
The new Adjust 108 fan controller from Fractal Design offers a simple yet clean option to adjust the speed of your case fans. With a brushed aluminum front panel and smooth moving sliders, it does not only emanate quality but also robustness and preciseness.
The Adjust 108 Fan Controller manages a total of six fans with a maximum of 36W per channel, while grouped three by three for ease of use. With a bi-color LED beneath each of the six sliders, the controller shows the speed of the fan not only by the slider itself but also through the color of the LED; white indicates a low RPM and blue a high RPM.
- Stylish, minimalistic front in aluminum
- 6 channels
- One LED per channel
- Intensity jumper for the LEDs
- Uses only one 5.25" bay
NVIDIA might be prepping dual-GPU Tesla with 8GB ECC GDDR5
NVIDIA is prepping a Tesla 3000 part based on the GeForce GTX 690. This new GPGPU card will reportedly feature two GPUs with 4GB GDDR5 memory per chip for a grand total of 8GB GDDR5, accordiong to BSN:
Every GPU is paired with 4GB GDDR5 memory for a grand total of 8GB, a world record for a GPU. Our sources warned us that this product is also suffering from the GPU Compute choices the company made with GK104 chip, and the new Tesla C3000 Series part will follow suit. We've been told to expect good SP performance (IEEE 754 "binary32" Single Precision), and GeForce-specific weak DP FP (IEEE 754 "binary64" Double Precision). According to the sources, "the big daddy silicon" is still not ready, while there is a lot of market demand for Kepler-based SP FP applications.
Given that Kepler GPU architecture increased the amount of SP FLOP (Floating Point Operation) from 64 to 96 in a single cycle, we understand the market demand for SP. While HPC customers will probably opt to wait for GK110-based Kepler boards, there is a large amount of customers that said that they don't give a "rat's behind" for DP and that they demand a Kepler part for their computational needs.

Laser Popping 100 Balloon Dominoes
Why ? Well, just because it's fun :)
Here is a world record submission video of 100 balloons falling like dominoes in a single file line.
Using a 750mW - 1000mW (1W) Spyder III Krypton Laser the record for single file balloon popping was set: 100 six inch (15.2 cm) balloons! This video has been submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records for officiation.
The balloons are held in place by being weighted down with specially modified cups filled with water. This prevents balloons that are popping from jostling other balloons out of position.
The focusing lens used is from a soldering kit's "helping hands" alligator clips holder.

Four GeForce GTX 670 (and 2/3-way SLI) reviews
Hello everybody, NVIDIA today launches their GeForce GTX 670 series graphics cards. Guru3D has prepared four separate GeForce GTX 670 articles, once reference, one 2 and 3-way SLI review, an ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP review and a Palit GTX 670 Jetstream review:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 review
We review the GeForce GTX 670. NVIDIA disabled a couple of shader processors and designed a more cost effective and smaller PCB. The card itself is still quite beefy in terms of performance though, which you'll understand once we sifted through the specifications. The GK104 GPU based graphics card has one SM/SMX cluster disabled. This gives the GK104 GPU 1344 CUDA cores to work with.

GeForce GTX 670 2 and 3-way SLI review
We review the GeForce GTX 670 in both 2 and 3-way SLI. ASUS submitted their GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II in two-fold, we add a reference card and that means multi-GPU gaming gangsta style. Over the next few pages we'll tell you a bit about multi-GPU gaming, the challenges, the requirements and of course there'll be a nice tasty benchmark session. We'll have a peek at temperatures and power consumption of the GeForce GTX 670 cards in 3-way SLI mode to monitor its generated performance and look at its handicaps.

Palit GeForce GTX 670 JetStream review
We review the Palit GeForce GTX 670 JetStream graphics card. the JetStream version which comes pre-overclocked at 1006 MHz on the baseclock and an impressible 1084 MHz on the boost clock. More interestingly, the boost clock during our test sessions was actually closer to 1200 MHz most of the time (!). To give the card enough framebuffer to work with the cards are equipped with 2048 GDDR5 on a 256-bits wide bus. Palit clocks this memory at 6108 MHz.

ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP review
We review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP edition. The DirectCU II TOP editions come factory overclocked pretty intensely towards 1058 MHz on the GPU base clock and a whopping 1137 MHz on the boost frequency. Even with that factory overclock, the card remains completely silent.

Bioshock Infinite delayed until 2013
Irrational Games said that it needed more time and money. That means it will avoid competing directly with big-budget first-person shooter rivals, including Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
When we announced the release date of BioShock Infinite in March, we felt pretty good about the timing.
Since then, we've come to realize that some specific tweaks and improvements will make Infinite into something even more extraordinary. Therefore, to give our talented team the time they need, we've decided to move the game's release to February 26, 2013. We wanted to let our loyal (and very patient!) fans know this as soon as possible.
I won't kid you: BioShock Infinite is a very big game, and we're doing things that no one has ever done in a first-person shooter. We had a similar experience with the original BioShock, which was delayed several months as our original ship date drew near. Why? Because the Big Daddies weren't the Big
Daddies you've since come to know and love. Because Andrew Ryan's golf club didn't have exactly the right swing. Because Rapture needed one more coat of grimy Art Deco.
The same principle now applies to BioShock Infinite.
What does this mean for you? It means a bit more waiting, but more importantly, it means an even better BioShock Infinite. The great can be made greater, and we owe it to both ourselves and to you, our fans, to take this opportunity. Irrational Games is one of those rare developers lucky enough to ask the people who sign the checks: 'Hey, can we have a few more of those checks?'
We are also going to hold off on showing BioShock Infinite at the big events of the summer, like E3 and GamesCom. That way, the next time you see our game, it will be essentially the product we intend to put in the box. Preparing for these events takes time away from development, time we're going to use instead to get the best version of Infinite into your hands in February.
