Zalman Intros Three New Graphics Cards with VF1500 Cooler

Zalman, a well-known manufacturer of CPU coolers, PC cases and graphics solutions, introduces three new graphics card models, codenamed GeForce GTX 600 D5 OC VF1500, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 OC VF1500. All three models are equipped with a brand two-slot VF1500 cooler. Its framework consists of four heatpipes which transfer heat from GPU surface to an aluminum heatsink. This heatsink is accompanied by a couple of 92 mm fans, the maximal rotational speed of which achieves 1500 RPM. If compared with a reference cooler, VF1500 reduces GPU operational temperature at 25 degrees (from 81 to 56 degrees), producing 10 dB less noise (26 dB vs 36 dB).



The first model is based on Nvidia GK106 processor, designed under 28 nm technological process. It is characterized by heightened clock frequencies: nominal 1006 MHz against reference 980 MHz, and dynamic 1059 MHz against reference 1033 MHz.


The other two models, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX …

WQHD Monitor Asus PB278Q Review

27-inch monitors were supposed to be quite an expensive solution several months ago, but today they are becoming more affordable due to the switch to LED technology. To say more, the army of displays with WQHD resolution (2560x1440) has grown from a few rare models to a line of products designed by a series of vendors. Asus joined this army with the introduction of monitor PB278Q. Its launch aroused great interest from the part of Asus devotees, as well as of all 'WQHD-targeted' customers.



Background Information


Monitor PB278Q is the first 27-inch model with WQHD resolution designed by Asus. It employs PLS+W-LED panel type manufactured by Samsung (LTM270DL02) and is a true 8-bit solution for home-based and corporate spheres. The array response time, measured at GtG methodology, is recorded at 5 ms mark. Viewing angles in both flats (vertical and horizontal) equal to 178 degrees; this is a typical figure for such type of displays. The maximal display brightness achieves 300 …

Scythe Offers a Universal CPU Water-Cooling System

Scythe has replenished the line of its products by a new water-cooling system Apsalus III 120. This enclosed cooler is considered to be self-contained and compatible with all contemporary CPUs from Intel and AMD. It should be mentioned that this time Scythe has joined its technological forces with the other cooler supplier. Thus, Apsalus III 120 is a modified version of one of the CPU water-cooling platforms (Gen4) developed by Asetek Inc.



The framework of Apsalus III 120 consists of a copper water block with an integrated pump, two opaque connecting tubes, a heatsink of 119x150x27 mm dimensions, and a single 120 mm fan (Scythe GlideStream 120). The latter is known to have a fixed speed of 1200 RPM; nevertheless, the noise level never exceeds the margin of 24 dB.


This water-cooling system supports the following CPU sockets: Intel (Socket LGA1155, 1156, 1366, 2011) and AMD (Socket FM2, FM1, AM2/(+), AM3/(+). The most beneficial peculiarity pertained to the new model is …
