The NH-C12P is a lower profile version of the fantastic NH-U12P from the Austrian company that oozes quality and great performance in its products. We've put it through its paces on LGA775 and Socket AM2+ to see if it can keep up with the strong competition it faces.

Read on to find out.

Foxconn's new DigitaLife branded A79A-S hails the relaunch of 790FX alongside the new SB750 southbridge that sports better overclocking. We put it through its paces to understand whether Foxconn made the board all AMD enthusiasts need, or an overly-expensive dud.
We test AMD's latest IGP, the 790GX, on Gigabyte's new board to see if the new integrated graphics and Hybrid CrossFire are a performance hit, and if the new chipset pair can really makes a difference.
We've got the low down on exactly what AMD's new "performance-leading" integrated graphics northbridge offers, in addition to its latest southbridge which is apparently primed for some super-overclocking. Has the AMD platform finally come good again?
Everyone wants the same things from a new heatsink; silent operation and high thermal performance, but the combination of both is notoriously hard to strike. We take a look at the Asus Triton 85, which claims to run at just 16 dBa, and find out if it can deliver the goods.

While we usually wait for full reviews, we just had to show you what arrived today: AMD's new RS780 IGP and SB700 south bridge.
Noctua has not just changed the F to a P when it updated its popular NH-U12 heatsink, as there are other design tweaks from improved materials and elevation, along with a new fan which apparently makes it perform even better. Inevitably, we had to put these claims to the test.
We test AMD's new Phenom 9600 Black Edition to see what kind of performance it offers at stock speed, and also what it gives away for free. Will this have the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 quaking in its boots?
We're not sure why OCZ named this heatsink the Vendetta, but we're guessing it's so offended by heat, that it's out to avenge the cold. What we can say for sure is that the Vendetta is reasonably priced and has a few novel features, as you'd expect from OCZ.
We loved the Zerotherm BTF90 so much we awarded it cooler of the year, so as soon as its new bigger brother, the Nirvana NV120, became available, we had to know about it.
With the AMD Phenom processors dropping in price hand over fist, some great deals on AMD ATI Radeon HD 3800-series graphics cards to be found... could MSI's K9A2 CF make now a good time to invest in that Spidery thing?

The cool and wavey design of the Tuniq Tower 120 has been around for a little while now, but at readers request we strapped it to a CPU and tried to burn it to a crisp anyway. We're nice like that.
Phenom may not be here quite yet, but MSI is already lining up its 790FX board: the K9A2 Platinum. It supports QuadFire and AM2+.
It's the best Gigabyte cooler you can currently buy, but will the blue heatsink Rocket II shoot for the stars or fall to earth with a pop and a whistle?
