Deepcool Announces a Pair of Maelstrom Liquid Coolers

Deepcool has extended Maelstrom lineup of liquid coolers with two new models – the 120T and the 240T. The key distinction between the pair is the amount of 120 mm fans employed (one or two). Both come equipped with red LED backlights and show compatibility with the majority of update Intel & AMD platforms. The maximal supported CPU TDP level makes up 140/150 W.

Deepcool Maelstrom 120T comes with a single fan, whereas its companion, 240T, features a couple of fans, based on fluid bearing with 50.000 hours MTBF. The units run at 1800 RPM, creating up to 83.64/167.28 CFM and 17-34 dB of noise (depending on the model).

Both coolers employ a ceramic pump (70x85.6x31.5 mm), estimated for 120.000 hours of fail-proof operation & running at 2400 RPM. The pump features a copper base with micro-channels, connected with solid rubber hoses and an aluminum heatsink. The new-comers are linked to the system by means of 4-pin connectors.

Gigabyte Debuts with Socket AM1 Motherboards

Gigabyte is the first among AMD’s partners to introduce proprietary motherboards for an upcoming Socket AM1 platform. Initially the AM1 series will comprise only two models: the GA-AM1M-S2P and the GA-AM1M-S2H. Both feature micro-ATX form-factor and are supposed to house AMD Athlon/Sempron APUs. They employ two DIMM slots for the integration of up to 32 GB DDR3 memory with 1600 MHz frequency. The release is scheduled for March when the platform is officially introduced.

Gigabyte motherboards have got two SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports for the expansion of storage, one PCIe 2.0 x16, one PCIe x1 and one PCI connector for the connection of add-ons. Network functional consists of gigabit controller from Realtek, whereas audio functional is laid upon 7.1-channel HAD Realtek ALC 887 codec.

The differentiation between the two models lies in the set of internal/external interfaces. Hence, the GA-AM1M-S2P comes with two PS/2 ports, one D-Sub port, four USB ports (3.0 + 2.0), one RJ-45, …
