Written by Richard on . Posted in PC Hardware

Read more: Noctua NH-U12P CPU Cooler - ReviewedI personally haven't heard of the company Noctua until now.  But after looking at their company website, the reason why is because they are an Austria.  But they are a well established company with a wide range of CPU coolers, Fans, and Thermal Compounds.  This NH-U12P CPU cooler is a massive cooler with 4 dual heat pipes while keeping noise in mind.

Read more: Meet a Puppy-Sized computer: the Norhtec MicroClient SRThe web is a fast medium: before you know it you're surfing off to other shores. So let me get the message out straight away: if you have a tight budget, love our planet, and need a computer, then put the Norhtec MicroClient Sr at the top of your shortlist! This is the smallest computer I have seen until now, and can be used in many situations to replace the larger and heavier computer system.  If you are starting with a clean slate, even better: definitely consider this tiny powerhouse! It's a small computer in physical size, uses a lot less energy. BUT let its Puppy Size not deceive you: there's a lot of power inside to address your (personal) computing and communication needs.

Ruvo Avox A65U1 UMPC - The Unboxing Review

Read more: Ruvo Avox A65U1 UMPC - The Unboxing Review

The vibrant world of UMPCs has many players, most of them well-known brands, others less so, but probably deserving our attention just the same.  In this category you will find the Ruvo Avox, a handsome slider UMPC.  Think of it as a Nokia N95 on steroids, but then a lot bigger!  The Avox, whilst practically unknown, has a more familiar incarnation as the Gigabyte U60.  Are they exactly the same? 

We got ourselves the first Avox in Australia, courtesy of Tegatech, the UMPC distributor par excellence down under.  They are excited about that little critter and I am beginning to see why! 

Please follow me on this unboxing and our subsequent in-depth reviews of the Ruvo Avox.

First off, the Avox is billed as the smallest full-featured PC.  In this fluid world of sub-notebooks and UMPCs that claim is probably correct but bragging rights are never long-lived and it is better to judge a device, particularly when it is this small, by its usability.  So that will be the main focus of this and the following reviews. 

Today we will be looking at the Avox from the unboxing perspective and go into the hardware details. 

A next review will highlight the software and performance aspects to be followed by a write-up of all the various accessories that can be bought separately.

Linutop Mini Linux PC Reviewed - Damn Small Linux Hardware

Written by Paul Moons on . Posted in PC Hardware

Read more: Linutop Mini Linux PC Reviewed - Damn Small Linux HardwareThe Linutop is a small Linux PC. Of course, if you think the Mac Mini is small, then perhaps the words, incredibly miniscule are closer to the mark.

Running a customised version of xubuntu Linux, this little box could replace your desktop for most common tasks, including what you're doing right now.

And if this wasn't impressive enough in a box slightly larger than a Nintendo DS, the Linutop does it all drawing a maximum of 5 watts - That's less than an energy saver light bulb!

 Read more: ZeroTherm BTF90 CPU CoolerWhen evaluating a CPU cooler, there are several things to look into.  In order of importance, the obvious factor is how well the product actually cools the CPU.  And then the next question to ask is how simple is it to install.  And then it would also be nice if the cooling solution looked good at the same time.  The ZeroTherm BTF90 is a product that provides an elegant-looking cooling solution that aims to nail down all of these key areas and excel in them at the same time.
