Origin PC has been spitting out 5.2GHz Genesis desktops for a few months already, but apparently some people wanted more. Thanks to a new ‘Phase Change’ cooling system that’ll be available from late Q1, they’re about it get it: a Core i7 2700K system factory clocked to 5.7GHz. Cooling controls and temperature displays will help you to establish the proper balance of power and pollution, while lifetime technical support (which now applies to all Origin PCs in the US) is just a phone call away in case you need to share the rush. There’s even an X79 mobo inside, offering scope for a Sandy Bridge E upgrade, plus NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 580 in four-way SLI. Origin has a little something for portable gamers too: a refreshed A-panel on the EON17-S and EON15-S laptops to help you strike the right note of grinning malice in front of your LAN victims. It’s not yet clear how these updates will affect pricing, but there are plenty of clips on YouTube that’ll show you how to smear thermal paste on your credit cards. Full PR after the break.
Maingear annuncia il nuovo EPIC X2, un dissipatore a liquido in grado di dissipare il calore di due GPU contemporanamente; il cooler supporta la GeForce GTX590 (aka EPIC 590 X2), GeForce GTX580 in SLI (EPIC 580 X2) e a breve per la Radeon HD6990 (aka EPIC 6990 X2). Il Maingear EPIC è più performante delle soluzioni di dissipazione tradizionali delle schede video e presenta inoltre un design completamente aggiornabile dall’utente senza dover rivoluzionare tutto l’impianto.

It’s no secret: if your laptop sits atop your lap for an extended period of time, you’re going to get burned — okay, so maybe not burned, but you’re definitely going to feel the heat. Luckily GE has been working (under contract for DARPA) on a new phase-change based thermal conductor that promises to cool electronics twice as well as copper, at one-fourth the weight. The breakthrough means big things for those of us who’d like to make babies one day, but we doubt that’s why DARPA’s shelling out the big bucks — the new material functions at 10 times normal gravity, making it a shoo-in for on-board computing systems in jetliners. Using “unique surface engineered coatings” that simultaneously attract and repel water, the new nanotechnology could mean not only lighter, cooler electronics, but also an increase in computing speeds. Goodbye scrotal hyperthermia, hello cool computing! Full PR after the break.
