This. Is. A. Wicked. System. I think that’s pretty much all there is to say about it. Dual GTX 680s in SLI, Core i7 Extreme six core processor & a colour scheme to make you say “WOW!”

In this episode of NCIX Tech Tips, we show you how to PREPARE your system for water cooling. This will be a step by step 3-part guide showing how to build the extreme liquid cooled PC that was featured in our Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.




In this video, Linus showcases the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680, which is as much a thing of technological beauty as it is a thing of physical beauty. This new card from NVIDIA sets new bars for performance per watt and the stunning number of features that it supports including 3D Vision Surround and GPU Boost!

The Lumia 900 is an eagerly anticipated smartphone which is going to be runningWindows Phone 7. This device is being seen as the flagship handset for Nokia to hopefully get them back into the smartphone market where they’ve been suffering heavily for the last few years.

It appears that Microsoft Stores in the US are now accepting a $25 deposit to secure one of the first handsets. They are offering the Lumia 900 in either black or white, however we still haven’t heard on a specific price or an actual release date for the device. Some reports have suggested that Microsoft may price it aggressively at $100 while others are saying it will probably be around the $150 – $200 mark. Sales staff in the stores are expecting the devices to arrive at some stage during the second half of March.

When the Lumia 900 is released in the US, it will be exclusive to AT&T and Nokia’s first 4G LTE phone.It sports a huge 4.3-inch display, a polycarbonate body in white or black (possibly cyan as well), a 1.4-gigahertz Qualcomm single-core processor, 512 megabytes of RAM, 16 gigabytes of built-in storage, 8-megapixel/720p video rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. It’s quite a feature packed phone and is certainly going to be a serious competitor to the likes of the iPhone 4s and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Nokia really need it to make an impact in the smartphone world, they are struggling big time at the moment and are pretty much relying on this and a few other devices to get people excited by Nokia again.

Here we have a quick little hands-on video for the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone, recently announced by Nokia at CES 2012. The Lumia 900 is Nokia’s first LTE phone, slated to be released on AT&T’s 4G network in the US.

This baller gaming system is not only well-spec’ed, but also looks great and DOMINATES the competition in terms of price! If you’re looking for a gaming system right now with about $2500 to spend, this is your best option bar none.
I even throw in a price comparison to one of our system building competitors. You will be pretty surprised I think…

Today Linus takes a look at the new Phenom II X6 processor from AMD and also shows us how to “push it to the limits, in only a few minutes”

The design and build quality of this water-box is excellent, it fits 3x360mm radiators, which means 9x120mm fans. Its designed to fit the entire active part of your water-cooling system, outside of your computer case, so radiators, pumps, fans, etc. I have designed my water-box to be multi purpose and extremely high performance.

For this episode of Tech Tips, Linus went to the NCIX PC production department and selected a random system to receive a complimentary “silence” upgrade from the standard components that the customer had ordered.

It seems like every other day NVIDA and AMD are trading blows like two giants playing shot for shot. It’s AMD turn to strike and they’ve landed a good one with the Radeon HD 7970. It’s the undisputed king of the single GPU castle. Well done!
