ID-Cooling Announces All-In-One Liquid Cooler With CPU And GPU Blocks

I still remember the day, some years ago, when I stumbled upon a review of PNY’s “Liquid Cooled” GTX 580 on Tom’s Hardware. It was an unassuming article, for the most part, if not a little more interesting since sealed loops were still only starting to become more popular. But what made that product review so interesting to me was the fact that there were actually two...

Welcome to SFF Network

Hello, and welcome to smallformfactor.net: a collaboration that encompasses a network of community-driven news content, and forum-based discussion, surrounding all things SFF.

If you were looking for a reason to party a little over two weeks from now, you’re in luck: In keeping with similar efforts for previous releases of Windows, Microsoft has announced that they’ll be hosting “fan celebrations” of the arrival of Windows 10, with the help of retailers, and (of course) their own Microsoft stores.

EVGA K|NGP|N Edition GTX 980 Ti teased

Normally, I’ve been quick to dismiss EVGA’s K|NGP|N editions of flagship graphics as little more than overpriced hardware, complete with frivolous features and stats-happy marketing buzz to match.

It came as a bit of a surprise, then, when IBM (of all companies) announced...
