Intel Debuts with an 'Ever Efficient' Motherboard DX79SR

Intel has officially introduced its new motherboard codenamed DX79SR. According to the company's developers, this board is the most functional one among all models ever released by Intel. One won't find it difficult to guess that the release of DX79SR is devoted to the announcement of a flagship processor Intel Core i7-3970X EE which breaks all records in terms of power-efficiency: its TDP level is estimated at 150W.



Motherboard Intel DX79SR is developed in ATX form-factor. It is compatible with LGA2011 socket and operates under Intel X79 Express chipset. The manufacturer alloted eight 240-contact slots for SDRAM memory of DDR3-2400+ type; the overall capacity of system memory might achieve 64 GB. Intel HD Audio is represented by 10-channel subsystem (7.1+2 channels with independent current transfer) with five analog outputs and optical S/PDIF output.


Motherboard extension facilities include three slots for PCI-e 3.0 x16 expansion cards, a couple of PCI-e x1 slots, and a …

Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.



Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.


The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.


Corsair bundles the …

MSI AM1I: Motherboard with Military Class 4 Hardware Base

MSI is one of the first manufacturers to introduce a motherboard for the newly launched AMD AM1 platform. The MSI AM1I features rather compact dimensions (170x170 mm) but its mini-ITX form-factor does not affect the specified functional possibilities for entry-level systems. The model supports AMD Athlon/Sempron processors for the above-mentioned socket.



The employment of Military Class 4 hardware base is supposed to be a major advantage of AM1I motherboard. It involves dark chokes, dark capacitors and other crucial components, which are backed by Military Class Essentials technology. The latter is called to protect the PCB from varied unfavorable happenings, i.e. high humidity, electrostatic discharge or high temperatures.


The PCB comes with two DIMM slots for the incorporation of one-channel DDR3 memory modules (up to 32 GB) with 1333/1600 MHz frequency. Storage is organized by means of two SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, whereas expansion of functional is due to two PCI …
