Gigabyte GTX 970 Extreme Video Card Review

Over the years, Gigabyte has released many products that are good, and many other products that are good AND focused on overclocking (think their SOC Force motherboards). One thing we haven’t seen on from them, on that front, is within their GPU lineup. Sure, the Windforce line is more than solid with the cooler, but their new “Extreme” line should take their video cards to another level. Gigabyte promises a better overclocking GPU with their sorting technology, dubbed Gauntlet sorting, high factory overclocks, good cooling, durability, protection, and being Xtreme friendly. Let’s take a look and see what they did on the GTX 970 Extreme we have to review! Read More

LN2Cooling.com Evaporator Under Dry Ice

Tested with Phenom II X6 1090T overclocking… I got in touch with a friend and he agreed to let me take one of his cooling pots for a spin. Aaron Schradin of LN2Cooling.com has lent me an excellent pot to play around with and review for all of you guys. This pot is usually meant for the purpose of running under LN2 and LHe4. This is seen in the many AMD world record breaking overclocking attempts, which can all be seen over at amdblackops.com. However I will be playing around with the dry ice performance of this pot, which has mostly gone overlooked until now. Includes Overclockers.com exclusive video. See it first here! Read More
