The First Glance at MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK & Z97 Gaming 9 ACK Mainboards

MSI could not resist the temptation to officially introduce a pair of new gaming mainboards: the X99S Gaming 9 ACK and the Z97 Gaming 9 ACK. The key distinction of new-comers from analogue models without ‘ACK’ attribute lies in the implementation of dedicated gaming network controllers: Qualcomm Atheros Killer 1525 and Killer E2205. The first one is supposed to support 802.11 ac standard that guarantees 867 Mb/sec throughput bandwidth; it also ensures less data deference. This provides for a faster network traffic processing and, as a result, — for a huge advantage in online gaming.



The E-ATX MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK motherboard is based on Intel X99 chipset, estimated for Intel Core i7-5000 CPUs with Socket LGA2011-v3. The model features 8x DIMM slots for DDR4-333 MHz memory (4-channel operational mode) of up to 128 GB capacity. Storage subsystem offers eight SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities are ensured by means of five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. The list of …

Scythe SCIOR-1000: a Comprehensive CPU Cooler with Top-Flow Design

Scythe is going to start the sales of its newest CPU cooler, entitled SCIOR-1000. It is honored for a comprehensive nature, since it might work with all contemporary CPUs, except for Intel Socket LGA2011 models. The other remarkable thing ascribed to the product is the employment of Top-Flow design.



Therein, the fan is localized over the heatsink, directing the airflow towards the whole framework, including the nickel-plated base. This way, it promotes for a better cooling effect.


Scythe SCIOR-1000 embraces also three 6 mm heat-pipes, along with a 100 mm fan. The latter supports PWM technology, so is able to reach the speed of 1800 RPM. The maximal noise level achieves 26.7 dB. Release date is scheduled for the final days of 2013. Some other specifications about the cooler are described below:

— framework dimensions: 136x117x107 mm, weight – 400 g.;

— supported platforms: Intel – LGA1366/115x/775 and AMD – FM1/FM2/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+;

— heat-pipes: …

Noctua Expands ‘A’ Fan Series

The line of Noctua’s A fan series has been enriched with three new models: NF-A9 92 mm, NF-A8 80 mm and NF-A4x10 5 V 40 mm. The triple is based on traditional SSO-2 bearings which provide for an optimal balance of lifespan (up to 150.000 hours) and noise level. In order to enhance the performance and reduce noise during operation Noctua equipped the fans with Advanced Acoustic Optimization frame, anti-vibration pads, and such technologies as Stepped Inlet Design, Inner Surface Microstructures and Flow Acceleration Channels.



Noctua NF-A9 model is an heir of a renowned NF-B9 version. It is available in two variations: NF-A9 PWM and NF-A9 FLX. The first one allows for dynamic alteration of operational speeds from 400 RPM to 2000 RPM; the other one offers three fixed speed indices (1050/1250/1600 RPM).


Noctua NF-A8 is a successor of NF-R8 model. It is available in three variations: NF-A8 PWM, NF-A8 FLX and NF-A8 ULN. The first fan is able to rotate at 450-2200 RPM speed …
