Meet New Gigabyte G1 Gaming Motherboards on Intel 9th Series Chipsets

Gigabyte has officially introduced a new line of motherboards based on the innovative Intel Z97/H97 chipsets. The G1 Gaming series features a traditional black-and-red PCB design and is supposed to cooperate with Intel Core CPUs (4th and 5th generation). Far and by, the series counts thirteen models of varied formats (ATX, micro-ATX, mini-ITX), with varied functional. Such a variety will help gamers of different levels to select an optimal model so far as the price and facilities are concerned.



Indeed, each motherboard boasts a singular set of facilities, although there are some common to all 13 models specifications:

— support for Multi-GPU technologies, i.e. Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFireX;

— availability of SATA Express connector with 10 Gb/sec bandwidth;

— integration of high-speed M.2 port with up to 10 Gb/sec bandwidth;

— availability of two external ports for a stable output voltage: Gigabyte USB DAC-UP;

— implementation of high-efficiency network …

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review

The second generation of AMD A-Series hybrid processors, announced earlier in October, are already integrated in a number of graphics solutions. The newly appeared products are compatible with Socket FM2 only and cannot be applied for Socket FM1 infrastructure. This implies that a number of motherboards lose their upgrade facilities and can't be updated with a new advanced solution. Still, the market is currently ready to present a few boards destined to operate with the updated AMD A-Series. Gigabyte is one of the pioneers in this respect, introducing its motherboard GA-F2A85X-UP4, developed specifically for Socket FM2.



Integration


Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 is designed in ATX form-factor with 305x244 mm PCB dimensions. AMD A85X chipset is a heart of the motherboard; it secures the compatibility with A-Series (second gen.) APU and Athlon CPUs in the implementation of Socket FM2. The overall TDP level claimed for the model is not more than 100W. The PCB allots four DIMM slots …

Greeting a New Powerful CPU Cooler ‘Lucifer’ from Deepcool

Deepcool Industries, an established developer of high-efficient cooling solutions, introduces its new CPU cooler with a horrendous name Lucifer. This cooler features 140x110x168 mm tower-like framework that is ready to manage the heat produced by any up-to-date desktop processor platforms from Intel (LGA2011, 1366, 1156, 1155, 775) and AMD (Socket FM1, FM2, AM3, AM3+, AM2, AM2+).



Deepcool Lucifer embraces a voluminous heatsink section that contains thirty-six nickel-plated aluminum ribs, six U-shaped, nickel-plated copper heat pipes, and a single 140 mm fan. The latter employs a hydrodynamic bearing and is governed by PWM technology. Fan speed might vary from 700 RPM to 1400 RPM; the maximal airflow produced by the fan approximates 81.33 CFM, while the maximal noise level does not exceed the margin of 31 dB.


It should be mentioned that this cooler is able to remove up to 130 W heat in passive mode (without a fan). The availability of a thermal compound in the nominal …
