Over at CES 2008 WayTronX are showing off their new CPU and GPU coolers. These are all in one sealed units, requiring one molex connector for power. According to WayTronX the CPU cooler can dissipate 400w of heat, sadly there is no information about the GPU cooler on the site. You can find out more about the technology behind this product here and you can check the How It Works too.

The WayCool CPU Cooler

I know what you are thinking, 'Isn't that the OCZ HydroCool?' The answer is yes and no! An OCZ rep was keen to point out the product does not have any OCZ branding but did not deny the design is the same... Below is another image showing off the WayCool cooling a CPU and what appears to be two 8800GT's in SLi. There is no data on temperatures.

As stated I have no technical information about the GPU cooler, other than it appears to be a sealed unit that takes up 4/5 slots!

Pretty cool looking products, would you use them or afraid your motherboard or graphics card might snap!? Comment here

Have you asked for help on this on the ASUS support site? could it be a problem with the new bios?

I'm quiet sure if u put a screwdriver right through the middle of ur nice and shiny new G0 it might work?... :P

Can't you try and manualy install the bios... without the help of some automated program?

Yeah, I'm looking at the manual now. Looks like I'm going to have to dig up a floppy drive and disk...

Shoved the latest bios rom on a usb stick, enter the BIOS and use the flash utility mate. I wouldn't trust that windows poop ;)

Man, I feel like I've had my noob hat firmly on today.

I actually dug up the manual - something I should have done first.

Found a pen drive and the rest is history.

Been priming the proccy...

Q. How bad is vdroop of commando's? This chip was tested on an msi platinum (p35) @ 3.6 1.45v. At 1.45v it is only stable at 3.4 (still testing). I know p35 clock quads better... They even switched from the p5k to the msi when testing...

A. They are pretty stable tbh but they always undervolt from what I've seen. Sometimes by as much as 0.05v.

..and ye the P35 boards are more geared out for the quads (PWM etc) and seem to clock a fair bit higher.

Still, @ 1.45v bios (1.4 real?) 3.4 isn't stable - prime for 9 mins... Going to add some volts as the pa120.3 and deltas are keeping things :cool:

Well, at 1.46 bios (1.41 real?) i'm stable @ 3.4... I'll keep pushing.

USB FTW!!

Yep, NOT flashing bios in Windows is probably one of the best bits of advice ever.

I always copy the bios file and flash utility to the root of my hard drive. I then use a boot disk CD and use the DOS prompt to copy the bios files to the RAM drive and execute the flash from there. I've never had a bad flash using this method for motherboards and video cards.

Just for interest I ignored the advice I've always followed and gave the ASUS Update utility a try on an old s754 PC the other day. It kinda worked except the onboard sound runs in slo-mo and the onboard USB no longer recognises any devices.

The update utility does not allow a rollback to an earlier version. After an hour of messing about with chpset drivers etc., I took the easy option and stuck in PCI sound and USB cards.

So at least it proved the moral of the story - NEVER FLASH IN WINDOWS.

:cool:
