Graphics Card HIS 7850 IceQ X Turbo X Review

The number of graphics solutions designed by HIS cannot be figured from a cursory calculation only.

Intel is preparing a new motherboard on chipset Z77 and Z75

Intel Corporation has a rather wide range of motherboards for processors Core i5/i7-3000 (Ivy Bridge), but, nevertheless, continues to produce products based on chipsets 7-Series. According to reports, the release of two motherboards Intel LGA1155 — DZ77GAL-70K is planned soon with code-named Gasper Light and DZ75ML-45K (Middle Lake). The first model uses a set of system logic Z77, second — Z75. Both models will receive a certificate of Windows 8 WHQL, support of Fast Boot technology and Lucid Virtu MVP.



Model Intel DZ77GAL-70K is based on the same PCB, as the previous DZ77GA-70K (Gasper) and DZ77RE-75K (Roads End). In contrast to the board DZ77GA-70K, new doesn’t have a rich set of delivery: WiDi-compatible adapter with an antenna, Bluetooth, remote panel with two USB 3.0 ports and a mouse pad Intel Extreme Series.

SilverStone Heligon HE01 - a new super-cooler

The Taiwanese company introduced a bulky cooler SilverStone Heligon HE01, which is designed to cool down more or less all types of modern CPUs — from Intel LGA775 up to LGA2011 and from AMD AM2 to AMD AM3 + / FM2.



The construction does not weigh less than 1.1 kg, since in addition to two-part radiator (926 g) it is equipped with fan of 140x140x38 mm size. Linear dimensions of Heligon HE01 are 140 mm in width, 119 mm in length and 160 mm in height. Staples that hold the fan, take a few millimetres of space.


The thickness of a pair of «towers», joined by six nickel-plated copper heat pipes with a diameter of 6 mm, is uneven. The intense air flow passes successively through a thin array of aluminium fins, and then through the fan, afterwards through a larger section of the radiator. Copper base with nickel cover is protected with a film from scratches.


The manufacturer claims that Heligon HE01 will cope with the withdrawal of 300 watts of heating power.
