A way to keep the CPU cool in style

Asus releases limited-edition cooler.


Computer cooling technologies are serious business--and for good reason --but it still seemed a bit odd at first that one such device would be created as a limited edition. Yet that's the distinction Asus has bestowed upon its "Triton 79 AMAzing" cooler. (The uppercase is correct, by the way, in case anyone was wondering if our caps-lock key was stuck.)

Aimed at gamers and others fond of overclocking their systems, each one of these 3,200 coolers comes with "an ultra-exclusive identification card marked with a limited-edition serial number," according to Fareastgizmos. And here we though all computer products had a unique serial number. It does, however, have an unusual metal casing and construction made of copper, nickel, and aluminum, as well as the ability to work with both Intel and AMD processors.

But if you really want to make an impression where cooling is concerned, you've got to check out Spotswood's latest drum case .
