Sapphire Nitro videocards are distinguished by two major features. First of all, they employ a top-notch hardware base consisting of solid-state capacitors and Black Diamond ferrite chokes. Second of all, their cooling system boasts the implementation of a molten heatsink, supplemented by a new coating framework and a kit of fans, based on dual ball-bearings. The fans are equipped with IFC-II intelligent system that halts their rotation on low GPU temperature, ensuring noiseless operation.

Sapphire Nitro R7 370 4G D5 is the most cost-efficient solution within the series. It relies on AMD Radeon R7 370 GPU, running at 985 MHz …

Deepcool Introduces a Universal IceEdge 400 E CPU Cooler

The cooling system is the radiator using three pipes instead of two. Heat pipes have direct contact with the surface of the GPU. They fit tightly in the grooves of the aluminum base. Blowing fan is placed between two raised sections of the radiator. And for a good blow of extreme areas it requires powerful air flow, which means higher fan speed. There is Everflow T129215SU fan with diameter of 92 mm (actual diameter of the blades a little less). The PCB is different from the standard and made in …
