Promises a 'direct pipeline' for modders.
Intel has released a report that shows an old GPU beating a CPU in performance tests.
Scan manages to tame a GeForce GTX 480, and find room for a 4GHz Core i7-920 too
A Core i7 and Radeon HD 5870 gaming powerhouse, if you can handle the noise.
Intel has announced a new range of CULV chips with 17W TDPs - and hinted at a slate device.
Core i7-920s are still available, and are £50 cheaper than the i7-930 - which is the better buy?
Intel was first to six-core, but AMD's six-core Thuban CPU is £600 cheaper. Is it any good?
This cooler is great, but only if you've already got a pair of quiet fans to use with it.
Gigabyte's new X58 motherboard has tons of ports, but can it tame the mighty Core i7-980X?
Gigabyte's brilliant micro-ATX P55M-UD2 offers a bag-full of features and overclocking potential for its modest £85 asking price. Read on to see why this is one of the best motherboards ever made.
Intel has finally released a CPU worthy of its premium Extreme Edition brand - the first six-core desktop processor. Previously known as Gulftown, the Core i7-980X Extreme Edition is not only brutally fast out of the box but also a fantastic overclocker thanks to its 32nm transistors.
The original Core i7-920 is the best selling high-end CPU, but as it's now nearing its 18-month birthday Intel has decided it's due for retirement. We check out its replacement, the i7-930. Clocked at 2.8GHz, it's only 133MHz faster than the i7-920 - but thanks to overclocking, it's still the chip to buy.
Asus challenged us to test the fact that its P6TD Deluxe can overclock a Core i7-920 D0 to 4GHz - and run it overclocked, all day, everyday. We put its claims to the test, and show you BIOS settings so you can get the same results at home.
Intel recently launched a new range of quad-core, Hyper-Threaded Core i7 processors for laptops. Kobalt Computers was first to get us a laptop to test for this preview of what Core i7 in a laptop can do. Read on to see whether a 1.6GHz CPU and a GeForce GTX 280M GPU can cut it.
First look at the new six-core CPU from Intel - will it be a Core i9? Who knows...
Gigabyte confirms everyone's suspicion that the forthcoming six-core Gulftown CPU will be branded as Core i9.
Notebooks from Dell's Alienware brand and rival MSI using the new Clarksfield-based mobile i7 processors have finally been unveiled.
The original Bloomfield Core i7s were a huge leap forward, providing masses of performance, both out of the box and when overclocked. Ten months on, Intel has finally released the range of CPUs to fill the gap between Core 2 and Core i7 with the new Lynnfield-core CPUs.
AMD has launched its fastest desktop CPU ever, the Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition. With an improved manufacturing process making it more tolerant of high voltages, is this the most overclockable Phenom ever?
Asus rushes us the first working sample of it's very first LGA1156 motherboard in the UK. We take a look, benchmark and overclock this first of its kind motherboard for the forthcoming Lynnfield Core i5 and i7 CPUs.
Intel launches the fastest processor ever in the shape of the Core i7-975 Extreme Edition. With the new D0 stepping, it's a great overclocker, but there's a price to match that makes the CPU of limited appeal. Still, expect this CPU to be breaking all the benchmark records for the next six months.

David Penfold's Overclocked Orange was inspired by the winner of Custom PC's Dream PC 2008 winner, the Scan Great White. The attention to detail in his water-cooled orange monster is impressive as is its specification and gorgeous powder coating.
While you could air-cool your Core i7, if you want to achieve a big, stable overclock without damaging your hearing then you might want to consider a water-cooling kit such as the H2O-220 Apex Ultima. We take a look to see how Swiftech's latest water-cooling kit copes with Intel's fastest CPUs.
Intel has launched a new series of processor logos alongside a five-star rating system designed to help end users compare different chips.
As the months roll on, Core i7 motherboards are coming closer to what most people would consider affordable. We take a look at MSI's X58 Pro to find out if taking the cheaper option will leave you short-changed in the way of performance and features.
CeBIT 09: Kobalt's new Blade chassis feature's four of CoolIT's latest TEC powered Elite water-chillers.
CeBIT 09: We check out G.Skill's new heatsinks (memory) cooling goodies and is it making a watch?
In the wake of Intel's latest CPUs comes a long line of aftermarket coolers offering improved cooling and quieter operation above that of the reference cooler. We put a selection of LGA 1366 coolers to the ultimate test, and see if they've got what it takes to keep even an overclocked Core i7 cool.
Asus is set to announce its Gene series mobos - Republic of Gamer level features and spice, but packed into an mATX form factor.
Gigabyte finally brings the styling of its X58 Extreme, UD5P and UD5 up to date. Check inside for pics!
