Small-Sized CPU Cooler Thermalright AXP-100 Review

Being an acknowledged leader in the segment of PC cooling systems, Thermalright never stops its improvement. The company always keeps pace with time, supplying its customers with only advanced and up-dated products. Following the latest tendencies towards the miniaturization in HTPC field, Thermalright took a decision to design a cooler for small-sized mini-ITX motherboards. As a result, all potential customers can now revel in a new compact cooler, codenamed AXP-100.

Design and Framework

CPU cooler AXP-100 features a horizontal framework, consisting of thin aluminum plates pieced by six copper heatpipes (6 mm each pipe). The whole construction is covered by a nickel surface. The heatpipes are folded smoothly and distributed across the heatsink area with 10 mm spacing; their edges are covered by ornamental caps with ‘Thermalright’ logo. Such configuration ensures utmost heat dissipation across the surface.

The implemented heatsink has got two-stage structure, …

Asus Launches 4K-Capable MG24UQ Monitor

Asus is about to launch a 23.6-inch PC monitor, first seen at CES 2016. The new-comer is basically targeting inveterate gamers who would love the company’s brand facilities such as GamePlus & GameVisual. The model is developed on IPS panel with 16:9 aspect ratio, 4 ms response time, 178/178 degrees viewing angles as well as 4K Ultra HD resolution (3840x2160).

Asus MG24UQ is able to ensure the premium brightness of 300 cd/m2, dynamic contrast ratio of 100M:1 and the maximal amount of displayed colors (16.7 million). The monitor is furnished with a pair of 4-watt speakers (2 watt each) which provide for a powerful & pure sounding.

The other privileges of the model are: the integration of VESA bracket for trouble-free wall mounting, the possibility to adjust the display in different aspects (height, tilt, swivel and pivot adjustments), the availability of different video ports (HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0) and one 3.5-mm audio port.

Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.

As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.

It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …
