SilverStone Heligon HE01 - a new super-cooler

The Taiwanese company introduced a bulky cooler SilverStone Heligon HE01, which is designed to cool down more or less all types of modern CPUs — from Intel LGA775 up to LGA2011 and from AMD AM2 to AMD AM3 + / FM2.



The construction does not weigh less than 1.1 kg, since in addition to two-part radiator (926 g) it is equipped with fan of 140x140x38 mm size. Linear dimensions of Heligon HE01 are 140 mm in width, 119 mm in length and 160 mm in height. Staples that hold the fan, take a few millimetres of space.


The thickness of a pair of «towers», joined by six nickel-plated copper heat pipes with a diameter of 6 mm, is uneven. The intense air flow passes successively through a thin array of aluminium fins, and then through the fan, afterwards through a larger section of the radiator. Copper base with nickel cover is protected with a film from scratches.


The manufacturer claims that Heligon HE01 will cope with the withdrawal of 300 watts of heating power.

Plextor Debuts with M.2 6G Solid-State Drive

Plextor, an award-winning Japanese SSD designer, launches its another M.2 solution, codenamed 6G. This drive features 42 mm length only, fulfilling space requirements of small-sized but high-performance cases. The new-comer is available in two capacity variations: 64 GB (PX-64M6G-2242) and 128 GB (PX-128M6G-2242). Their retail price makes up $50 and $90 respectively.



Both Plextor M.2 6G solid-state drives come with PCI Express 2.0 interface. They are based on Marvell 88SS9188 controller and 19 nm MLC NAND flash-memory with Toggle interface (by Toshiba). The models support TRIM and NCQ technologies as well as DEVSLP power-efficient mode that reduces power consumption to 0.2 mW.


As far as speed characteristics are concerned, M.2 6G accelerate up to 520 Mb/sec on sequential Read operations; sequential Write index depends on the model: 160 Mb/sec for 64 GB model and 210 Mb/sec for 128 GB one. At the same time, random Read/Write operational index (4K blocks) makes up …

AMD Has Officially Launched the Sale of Its Ryzen 7 CPUs

The AMD has just officially announced the beginning of its AMD Ryzen CPUs sale, designed for desktop PCs. The development of these processors took 4 years, and now customers can enjoy the results of the process – the up-to-date CPUs, based on the brand-new AMD Zen microarchitecture.



The first to hit the stores were three 16-thread 8-core Ryzen 7 line samples: 1700, 1700X and 1800X. The base clock of Ryzen 7 1800X is 3.6 GHz, 1700X – 3.4 GHz, 1700 – 3.0 GHz. Boost frequencies are equal to 4.0, 3.8 and 3.7 GHz respectively. 1800X and 1700X feature 95 W TDP, the 1700 model’s rate is 65 W. Ryzen 7 1800X costs $499, 1700X – $399, 1700 – $329.

In the second quarter 6- and 4-core Ryzen 5 products will be released, and later this year they will be joined by Ryzen 3 models. All these devices are intended for system boards with AM4 sockets and possess an unlocked multiplier.
