GIGABYTE 3D GALAXY II INTRODUCTION
Liquid cooling, once the realm of eccentric PC alchemists, has evolved into a relatively mainstream cooling solution available to the average user. While many liquid-cooling aficionados will scoff at the idea of buying a system in kit form, these kits make it very easy for the novice to get their feet wet, so to speak. Gigabyte is better known for marketing motherboards and graphics cards but has recently ventured into the chassis/cooling market. They've sent us their new Galaxy II system for evaluation and it represents the second generation of this product. It comes complete with everything you'll need to cool your CPU and has some interesting features that promise good cooling, safety and expansion. Let's put it through its paces and see how it performs.
