MSI is preparing new model - Radeon HD 7970 with a water-block

The well-known in IT-maker Company MSI announced about appearance of new videoadapter based on GPU Tahiti XT chipset. Its diversity from the other Radeon HD 7970 can be seen with the naked eye, instead of an air cooler practically the entire surface of the PCB is covered with waterblock brand EK. It differs markedly from the original version, since it is designed specifically for the MSI R7970 Lightning model. Relation of adapter to the Lightning series is easily determined by the inscription at the interface connector PCI-E 3.0 x16, as well as non-standard set of video outputs (2x DVI, 4x Mini DisplayPort) and configuration of additional power connectors (2x PCI-E Power 8-pin).

Obviously, the accelerator is positioned as the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and has a nominal frequency of at least 1050 MHz. Will MSI risk, like Sapphire did, and provide the card with 6 GB of memory? Probably not. The «advanced» composition of the printed circuit board and water block of full coverage …

Raijintek Introduces Three CPU Coolers for Budget-Oriented Customers

Raijintek, a newly-established hardware developer, puts on sale three CPU coolers, targeted primarily at budget-oriented customers. Along with bright codenames, — Erebos, Themis and Aidos — the triple received a bright design: a silver-like heatsink block, a white fan and a raspberry-red fan frame. Each model is able to efficiently cope with the cooling down of all systems with medium loading.

The first model, Raijintek Erebos, consists of a voluminous perforated heatsink block with thirty-four plates. The plates are pierced by six heatpipes (6 mm each) and are accompanied by a 140 mm fan (Aeolus). To say more, this cooler is appropriate for a passive cooling process, due to a large heatsink with perfect heat dissipation facilities. The model comes to the market at the price of € 34,90.

The next model, Raijintek Themis, also features a voluminous heatsink section. In combination with four U-shape copper heatpipes, this heatsink is able to provide for an effective …

Scythe Showcases Asymmetric Byakko CPU Cooler

Scythe, a well-known Japanese manufacturer of cooling solutions, is about to release an uncommon CPU cooler. Entitled Byakko, the Tower model features an asymmetric design: an aluminum heatsink is superseded backwards against the nickel-plated base; such framework ensures an ideal compatibility of the cooler with high RAM modules. Moreover, the item is only 130-mm high, so it can fit any PC case.

Scythe Byakko is reconcilable with the majority of modern platforms, including Intel Socket LGA 1366/115x/775 & AMD Socket FM1/FM2/FM2+/aM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+. The cooler accommodates three nickel-plated 6-mm heat pipes, replenished by a single 92-mm fan. The Scythe Slip Stream 92 PWM is based on a sleeve bearing. Thanks to the PWM support, the fan is able to rotate within 300-2300 RPM range. Therewith, the maximal noise level does not surpass the margin of 28.26 dBA (the minimal index is 7.2 dBA).

The model is able to produce 6.70-46.55 CFM airflow, depending on the rotational speed. …
