Akasa's latest cooler is made for overclocking and high-end cooling. Does it deliver?
We put 11 third-party graphics card coolers to the test to see which, if any, is worth buying.
The follow up to the Akasa Nero, the Nero S fancies itself as a premium cooler ready to take on the best. With four fat direct-contact heatpipes and a nifty S-blade fan it certainly looks up to the task. We see if it'll triumph or go up in flames in the bit-tech thermal test rigs.
They might take our lives, but they will never take our Freedom Tower! Well, we'd rather they didn't take either, truth be told - we're rather fond of our lives, and also of this excellent and well priced cooler. Read on to see why (and we promise no more Braveheart references).
We grab a dozen of the latest 600-700W PSU products, strap them to the test machine and put them through their paces. With all your favourite brands tested, who is worth buying for your next upgrade?

SSDs are fast becoming the must have new storage medium but installing them in PCs can be tricky. We've taken a look at three ways you can connect 2.5in SSDs and indeed hard disks to your PC.
Having tested plenty of mini-ITX kit recently, we've been searching for a quality low profile cooler to squeeze inside our HTPCs. We've bagged three miniature coolers to find out if, when it comes to keeping your system cool, does size matter?
COMPUTEX 09: Akasa's new Nero S is bigger, cooler and wavier than the original.
This time in our On Our Desk round-up we take a look at remote control helicopters, iPhone games, card readers, hard drive enclosures and a copy of the Mass Effect OST - mainly because we've got to give our worktops a good spring cleaning before we move offices.
It's round-up time once more and this time we've got a boat load of bags, mouse mats, MicroSD cards, hard drive docks, gaming mice and...um, SATA II cables to look at. Check out exactly why bits and bobs have been cluttering our desks lately in the latest round-up.
We review Akasa's PowerMax kilowatt "Gaming" PSU to find out what makes it so gamer-worthy. Is its attractive price a boon, making it a great bargain, or is it cheap and not-so cheerful? Read on to find out...
Today we look at the "Blue Aurora," the new high performance aftermarket heatsink from Akasa. With an exclusively LGA 775 mount and an included 120mm blue LED fan, can the Aurora light up our skies, or will it leave them overcast? Read on to find out!
Reliably testing CPU heatsinks can be a tricky business, with so many variables capable of jeopardising accurate results. For this reason, we've re-assessed our testing methodology, and put some of the most popular and high-performing heat sinks through their paces in our new standard test setup.
Akasa's Eclipse-62 chassis has been a stalwart in the company's range for a long time now. Today we look at the Mirage-62, which looks strikingly similar to the Eclipse. We find out what's different and whether Akasa has improved on a tried and tested design.
