Gelid SlimHero Gains an Off-the-Shelf Product Status

First seen at CeBIT exhibition, CPU cooler SlimHero from Gelid has turned into an off-the-shelf product. The new-comer joined Gelid Silent cooler series and is already available for customers at the price of around $32. The major distinctive peculiarity applied to the cooler is its framework: it features only 59 mm height that is quite appropriate for the installation into small-sized mini-ITX/mini-Tower PC cases or into advanced HTPC systems.



At the same time, SlimHero is equipped with four copper heat pipes, a range of aluminum ribs, and 120 mm fan. The employment of copper in the design of heat pipes is to significantly increase heat transfer to the ribs. Moreover, their original shape ensures low resistance to airflow, resulting in a more efficient cooling process.


Gelid SlimHero demonstrates wide compatibility with a lump of present-day desktop platforms: AMD Socket FM1, FM2, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, as well as Intel LGA 775, 1150, 1155, 1156, 1366. According to Gelid …

The framework of Apsalus III 120 consists of a copper water block with an integrated pump, two opaque connecting tubes, a heatsink of 119x150x27 mm dimensions, and a single 120 mm fan (Scythe GlideStream 120). The latter is known to have a fixed speed of 1200 RPM; nevertheless, the noise level never exceeds the margin of 24 dB.


This water-cooling system supports the following CPU sockets: Intel (Socket LGA1155, 1156, 1366, 2011) and AMD (Socket FM2, FM1, AM2/(+), AM3/(+). The most beneficial peculiarity pertained to the new model is …

Welcome in MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G Golden Edition Video Card

MSI has finally gladdened its gaming fans with a new ‘golden’ graphics card, entitled GTX 970 Gaming 4G Golden Edition. The model is based on Nvidia’s GM204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell architecture) with 1644 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and 13 SMM units. Connection with visual devices might be realized via dual DVI ports, a single HDMI, and one DisplayPort.



Thanks to the support of MSI Gaming App, users are free to select one of the working modes: Silent, Gaming or OC. Each of them is differentiated by nominal and dynamic clock frequencies, Hereby, in Silent mode this adapter runs at 1051 MHz/1178 MHz (nominal/dynamic); Gaming mode provides for 1140 MHz/1279 MHz frequency, while OC allows increasing both indices up to 1165 MHz/1317 MHz correspondingly.


The integrated GPU cooperates with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface, 224 Gb/sec throughput index). Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1751 MHZ, but its efficient index rises up to 7010 MHz.
