Computex 2007 – Day 1 Show CoverageWed, Jun 06, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Heatpipes are very popular in cooling hardware these days with numerous companies using fancy copper heat pipes to cool processors, video cards and motherboard chipsets. Thermalright recently announced an entire line-up of computer cases that feature thin pipes of the coolest nature. The upcoming offer includes four cases – the ATX Tower enclosure nicknamed HSC-100, HCS-300 (ATX case), HSC- 500 (micro-ATX) and HSC-700 (ITX). We happened to find a couple of these cases at Computex and they are worth a look!
The first case we spotted was the HSC-100, which is basically a giant heat sink with cooling fins all over the case. Makes sense to why they call these heatpipe cooling cases now!
A closer look at the side panel on the HSC-100 shows just how many ‘cooling fins’ are present on the door. One of the nice things with having cooling fins like this is that one can mount a cooling fan easily and nearly any place on the entire enclosure.
The HCS-300 (ATX case) is another ATX design that is going to be brought to market.
If a heatpipe cooling case isn’t your thing, Thermalright also has a ton of other individual heat pipes that can help cool down everything from the CPU to GPU as well as the memory modules and the back of the motherboard!
That’s it for our coverage from day one! Check back tomorrow for even more highlights from this year’s show!
