Corsair Hydro Series H90

Overclockers Club has published a review of the Corsair Hydro Series H90 CPU liquid cooler today. You can see our recent evaluation of the Corsair H90 and H110 here.

Comparing to a stock box cooling solution may seem less than ideal, but Corsair's H90 does well against more capable cooling solutions. When overclocked it delivered a three degree improvement over one of the best air cooling solution out right now from Phanteks. Any which way you look at it, the performance speaks for itself.

Army Pfc.

Sony Sells Another Building For $1.2B

Can't turn a profit on your products? Laying off employees and selling billion dollar buildings seems to be helping Sony out these days.

Sony stated the sale was part of the company's reorganization of assets to "strengthen its corporate structure." Then again, the 41 billion (around $4.4 billion) raised in operating income by the sale and how it'll help Sony turn an operating profit this fiscal year helps too. The company wants to bring an end to four successive years of losses, including last fiscal year's loss of around $820 million, not to mention the humiliation of Fitch Ratings cutting the company's credit rating to junk status.

Lian Li PC-7HX Mid-Tower Case

There is a review of the Lian Li PC-7HX posted at LanOC today. If you are in the market for a new case, you might want to give this review a look.

When I saw the PC-7HX I was reminded of the Lian Li cases of old. This isn’t to say that their new cases haven’t been great, but there is something to be said for the simplicity that their old cases used to have. The PC-7HX looks great with its rounded edges around the mesh grill on the front of the case. I would love to see this same model with a windowed side panel, but beyond that I wouldn’t change anything on the outside.
