Corsair announced the immediate availability of DDR1 XMS-4000 2GB solutions. Available in both 1GB single and 2GB kit packages, the XMS-4000PT is guaranteed to run at 500MHz at 3-4-4-8-1T. Altech Computers, who distribute Corsair memory in Australia, sent over this 32KB PDF with more info.

Gigabyte have a new R0HS-compliant i945P motherboard. As the first Green Computing motherboard from GIGABYTE, the GA-8I945P-G-RH complies with the European Union’s Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive that limits the use of lead, mercury, cadmium and other hazardous substances in electronic products. More info in a 485KB DOC here.

Gigabyte also announced their 2nd generation Silent-Pipe cooling system for their video cards. This is achieved through a unique design that draws cool air in through a new proprietary front-flow thermal module to remove heat from the heat sink on the VGA card. With the improved natural airflow generated by GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II technology, even hardcore 3D processing applications can run smoothly and reliably with minimal noise from high-speed VGA card cooling fans. More info in a 685KB DOC here.

Noctua, an Austrian (not Australian :) ) company, has some new large CPU coolers. Thanks to the enormous surface area of more than 5000cm² (NH-U12) and 3800cm² (NH-U9) as well as the application of large 120mm (NH-U12) and 92mm (NH-U9) fans, NH-U coolers are especially suitable for all fields of application where maximum performance at minimum noise levels is required. They don't seem all that different to ones we've seen already.. anyway, more info here.
