Almost two years ago I received the ThermalTake iFlash fan which featured a POV display, this LED fan projected the case temperature and some ThermalTake logos on the fan blades. While it was a pretty cool product most people were a bit disappointed by the lack of customizability.

One of the most wanted features for this fan was the capability to put your own text messages on the fan's blades. Fortunately ThermalTake has listened to comments from the community and at CeBIT 2008 the firm has shown off the ModX fan.

The ModX is world's first programmable logo fan, just like the iFlash fan it will feature a POV display and temperature readout but this time you'll also be able to put your own words on the fan! Few details are available about the ModX fan but I suppose it uses a USB interface. The product ships with some software for Windows and supports four different pattern effects.

The ThermalTake ModX fan will be available in 80mm and 120mm versions. for more information about pricing just click here.

Intel Corporation has completed the development phase of its next-generation manufacturing process that further shrinks chip circuitry to 32 nanometres (a billionth of a metre). The company is on track for production readiness of this future generation using even more energy-efficient, denser and higher performing transistors in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Intel will provide a multitude of technical details around the 32nm process technology along with several other topics during presentations at the International Electron Devices meeting (IEDM) next week in San Francisco. Finishing the development phase for the company's 32nm process technology and production readiness in this timeframe means that Intel remains on pace with its ambitious product and manufacturing cadence referred to as the company's "tick-tock" strategy.

That plan revolves around introducing an entirely new processor microarchitecture alternating with a cutting edge manufacturing process about every 12 months, an effort unmatched in the industry. Producing 32nm chips next year would mark the fourth consecutive year Intel has met its goal.
