Motherboard Biostar A55MD2 Review

Good overclocking facilities are what the majority of customers look for in contemporary motherboards. In this light, the manufacturers establish various price ranges, depending on the product’s overclocking potential. As usual, boards from budgetary lines cannot boast such potential, though there are some exclusions. Biostar A55MD2 is considered to be one of the cheapest solutions for FM2 platforms. Still, its layout marvels by the availability of CPU boost facilities, as well as gigabit network interface.



Design and Layout


Motherboard Biostar A55MD2 distinguishes itself by rather compact dimensions: 226x178 mm (uATX form-factor). The model accommodates an amplifying board that is made of a metallic fusible element. The chipset is cooled down by a small-sized aluminum heatsink, while field transistors are avoid of any cooler. This might signify about some inconsideration pertained to thermal environment. Power supply activity is realized by means of 24-contact and …

HIS Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2: Graphics Card with an Offbeat Cooler

HIS has recently replenished its Radeon R9 series of graphics cards with a new model – the Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2. Based on AMD Hawaii Pro chip, this card is a combination of an ultimate efficiency and an offbeat design. The integrated GPU runs at an etalon frequency — 947 MHz. No changes have been incorporated into the frequency mode of GDDR5 memory: the 4 GB memory with 512-bus interface runs at nominal/effective 1250/5000 MHz frequency.



The major peculiarity pertained to the model is the employment of a proprietary two-slot cooler, codenamed IceQ X2. It consists of a spacious copper base (40x47.5 mm), a large aluminum heatsink, a pair of 89 mm fans, and five nickel-plated heatpipes: 2x 8 mm and 3x 6 mm. The cooler also accommodates additional heatspreaders, which dissipate heat in memory and VRM sections. Moreover, the framework boasts a dedicated stiffening plate that reduces loading on the printed circuit board.
