Corsair Hydro H70 cooler review

Accessible water cooling for the masses

Watercooling a processor is not an option commonly accessible to the amateur builder; it requires a careful selection of pumps, radiators, tanks, hoses, coolants and acquired knowledge to ensure compatibility. For example, mixing copper and aluminium waterblocks can create rust particles within the coolant, anti-fungal agents must be carefully mixed in, lines must be bled of air, water seals tested and more.

I get blown away by delightfully simple movie

I don’t usually review movies. The reasons are many, but the onus lies mostly on my abhorrent lack of knowledge in the domain, so when I take the time to write an article on a film, you’d better assume it was worth the trouble.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I grabbed the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Blu-Ray off the aisle of my local rental store. We sat down that night and fired it up on my newly, boxing-day acquired, Sony XBR HDTV.
