Work Alert!

August 22, 2009

The awesome tech news/reviews/everything else site HotHardware.com has posted a review I scrunched out.

It’s a system review of the AVA Direct Custom GT3 gaming system, a little desktop with a top-handle for lugging about to LAN fests. Here’s a clip:

AVA Direct’s custom GT3 series is aimed squarely at the LAN party gamer, and won’t throw out your back with its diminutive size and weight. It’s built with portability in mind; the case is small, it comes with a handle and the thing weighs less than 20 pounds. And because it’s custom, you can build it up as you please at AVA Direct’s Web site. Finally, due to the fact that the GT3 is more a tiny desktop than a true SFF (Small Form Factor) machine, in theory, it shouldn’t sacrifice much power for the sake of portability.

Please, check out the review and, if you’re the commentin’ type, comment as you may.


CoolIT Domino A. L. C. Cooler Review on PC Perspective

July 27, 2009

Check it out.

The obligatory quote (the intro, actually):

CoolIT Systems has built a reputation for bringing liquid cooling to the masses. With its various, integrated, sealed-unit liquid coolers, it has removed the need for amassing radiators, hoses, reservoirs, water blocks, and other miscellany and then assembling them into a working system free of air and contaminants.

Most of CoolIT’s liquid coolers come with a reservoir/radiator/fan that mounts over the more-or-less standard, rear, 120mm fan grate found on most enclosures. Two hoses connect the unit to a water block that fastens to the CPU. The new Domino A. L. C. keeps up that same tradition, but comes with some new twists that make it even more compelling than earlier CoolIT liquid cooling systems.

Dig it. Let me know what you think.

My final work is up at ExtremeTech. Check it out, and leave me a farewell on the messageboards if you wish. It links back to this blog, which, come Monday, will have two big announcements regarding my career.
