Killer Xeno, again.
 
VisionTek Killer Xeno PRO NICAt the beginning of the year, BigFoot networks announced their second gaming network card. It was sold in gaming computers from big vendors and also from EVGA. Now it's VisionTek's turn to market the Xeno Pro NIC in North America, Europe and Asia. VistionTek are well known for their ATI graphics cards, but this partnership will push them into a wider market.
 
The Xeno Pro is designed to take gaming to the next level with performance designed to enhance the online multiplayer experience. This new hardware caters to the growing online PC gaming audience and includes custom bandwidth controls to tailor the game play experience to the user's needs. "I would say that this card is outstanding and is worth every penny!" commented Raz, Team Dignitas Call of Duty 4 player and Call of Duty Player of the Year, 2009. "Never have I seen a piece of hardware like this."
 
The card is based on a short PCB and runs on a PCI express x1 interface, allowing the CPU to focus on games and not networking whilst also lowering ping and improving speeds. The Xeno Pro also offloads voice communications from the CPU, processing them itself for a further boost.
 
This could see the Killer network interface cards become more popular, or atleast more widely available.

Hey guys,

I have 2 GTX 260s in SLi and a Core I7 920 (D0)...

How much would an effective watercooling system cost (£) to build, and also to maintain?

Talking around £250 new.

Maintaining it cost maybe £10 every 6months to a year depending on when you change your fluid.

What happens to the fluid after 6 month?

It's recommended you change the fluid between 6-12months or else it may start to clog up in the tubes if let for a long period.

Holy mackerel, that's a lot of money! :eek:

I would be tempted to go second hand though...

Any recommendations on exact products I should be looking for? :)

Hehe, well tbh I thought the other parts really weren't concerned with the watercooling (other than having a suitable case of course!).

Will update my signature in due course to reveal my full system specs. :)

You have to be prepared to pay for high quality parts to make it worth while and also be prepared to spend time on it as it's not just something to forget about for years once installed.

I've probably spent a lot more than £250 on my watercooling since first getting some a couple of years ago, and it's a fairly standard loop.

It kinda becomes a hobby and as such, costs like hobbies tend to do.
