CoolIT Systems Selects Enthusiast System Architecture Platform For Next-Generation PC Components

CoolIT Systems, known for their high performance MTEC™ liquid cooling systems, today announced its endorsement for the new Enthusiast System Architecture (ESA), an industry-wide initiative that enables PC components to communicate thermal, electrical, acoustical, and operating characteristics in real-time. CoolIT’s MTEC Control Center, along with other ESA-compliant applications, provide enthusiasts with unprecedented software control to achieve better performance and optimal thermal and acoustic operating environments.

“We at CoolIT applaud NVIDIA and all of the ESA development partners for putting ESA into motion and are proud to be helping bring the enthusiast closer to their system. Now that ESA has enabled software interaction with hardware and cooling components, new levels of functionality can be enabled. It’s now easy to imagine hardware profiles fully interacting with the application or game conditions to provide even more immersive and high performance experiences. CoolIT has long believed in this direction as the next step in hardware evolution and is looking forward to promoting and supporting ESA's continued development,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO of CoolIT Systems Inc.

“Essentially, ESA provides the consumer with the optimal computing experience” said Waleed Zamel, technical marketing manager at NVIDIA.” “The full monitoring and control afforded by ESA allows PC enthusiasts to achieve the highest level of performance while increasing the reliability of their components and maintaining low noise levels."

yea but how many peeps from the church of mac would get their hardware from places other than the official apple nipple

Its one of the entry requirements/commandments isn't it? :rolleyes:

would you pay 15k for a car instead of 10k for the exact same car the only difference being the badge

People do it by their 1000s everyday. Worldwide, who knows, millions perhaps.

In the UK they`re prepared to pay 15k for a car u can buy for 10k in mainland europe (including fares and hotel costs).

EDIT: World is full of examples. Buy smokes from a corner shop instead of buying containers at a supermarket. Buy fireworks at a rate of £50 per 10 seconds thrill. Buy carpet @ £45 pm, when u can get the same for up to half the price at another store, only u don`t have the classy fitters van outside ur house for the neighbors to see. Use a car to GO to the corner shop... waste of monies everywhere for services u can get cheaper or an alternate.

Need a link to the system req. site for leapold, gotta try that. How about system board drivers etc ?!?

Really ?

yeah, but - like i said - why would you?

Well being as I use a different pc for my web/mail to the gaming and working pcs, Vista failed the test, I`d think long and hard about installing leo if there`s not gonna be as many issues as windows based ones.

As for Win vS OS vS nix, Frag`n`Joe can give the arguements either way.

As for costing, beauty is, I can just request it :)

Yeh, but just look at a mac, well worth it imo.. I pay the prices, so do many others.. You DONT buy macs to game.. I think people fail to understand that... As for buying direct, its the best way the prices on the highstreet are pretty much exactly the same..

Yeh anyway, In my opinion macs are worth the money you pay. I have never had a mac break, never had a virus, never even had a mac crash i dont think..

My views are Best everyman os: .. hands down OSx Wins
Best Bleeding edge , geek love/OS == Linux
Best way to get you box turned into a spam bot/your sensitive data exposed == Windows

If U can run OSx86 10.4 10.5 is no prob (u can even use the upgrade system in 10.5 after patching)

mobo is no probs Ideally an intel chipset 945 or better ; realtek sound and net are well supported; ne modern graphs shd hav drivers...

there is a WIKI and a forum out there google OSX86wiki

hmmm I was semi aware of the OSX86 thingy, but I was kinda under the impression it was hack after hack and not 100% legit.

PCs `generally` need better hardware to do the same thing a mac does. Install FinalCut pro on a mac and pc machine with the same hardware and u`ll notice the difference.

not since 10.5 ... recommended to have 2GB !!!!

but CPU wise once the enviro is processed they shd be the same (except xtra background processes that users install)

(my views on the Oses are exposed in the previous post)

Its aint 100% legit .... against the EULA

but discussion is legal as are instructions and posting KEXT's/Drivers .. just dont post a kernel hack !!!

Is a "kenal hack" of sorts required, or prefered, for a smooth install, or can u just slap in the DVD and go for it ?

@ this stage i must point out this is a hypothetical scenario and no one here has or will run OS X on non apple Hardware

that site will give u the name of a prepatched dvd to acquire ...
so @ ur end there isnt much required -- pop in dvd, Install and maybe get a missing driver or 2
