AMD FX-8300 is Already in Retail Trade

Despite the fact that AMD initially scheduled the official release of FX-8300 for 29 December, this CPU can already be found in some Japanese retail stores. Such sudden appearance in free sale allows all potential consumers to get assured in all claimed specifications. Thus, FX-8300 is an eight-core chip of the new generation that is characterized by 95W TDP level. This is a kind of a breakthrough, since its Vishera companions, FX-8350 and FX-8320, consume up to 125W power.

The reduction of power consumption is explained by the decrease of CPU clock frequencies and nominal voltage showings. Hence, the nominal clock frequency recorded with this CPU model makes up 3.3GHz, while in Turbo mode the frequency rises to 3.6GHz. Some resources state that FX-8300 is able to overclock up to 4.2GHz, however, this info is not vindicated so far. This chip is developed specifically for Socket AM3+.

Taking into account such parameters, analysts feel difficulty in predicting the future of …

MSI Announces an Optimized Radeon HD 7750 Graphics Card

A new graphics card based on Radeon HD 7750 adapter is going to replenish the line of products developed by MSI. Codenamed MSI Radeon HD 7750 (R7750-1GD/OC), the card is based on AMD Cape Verde Pro GPU. Its nominal clock frequency has been increased from 800MHz to 830MHz index. The model accommodates 1GB of GDDR5 memory with 128-bit interface; its nominal frequency equals to 1125MHz, while its effective clock frequency equals to 4500MHz.

The implemented printed circuit board employs only high-end elements, including high-quality solid-state capacitors. If compared with standard analog items, capacitors integrated into MSI Radeon HD 7750 are characterized by a better efficiency, lower operational temperatures, and longer lifespan. Effective cooling process is ensured thanks to the two-slot cooling system which consists of a single fan and an aluminum heatsink. This cooler is able to provide the utmost airflow necessary for the cooling of all internal components. A set of …

Cooler Master Eisberg 240L Prestige: Liquid Cooler with Advanced Facilities

The majority of liquid cooling systems are developed with the implementation of practically identical hardware base. Nonetheless, Cooler Master stepped forward with introducing a cooler that involves the components of a higher level and that can be supplemented by some other components (if necessary). Codenamed Cooler Master Eisberg 240L Prestige, this model is an efficient tool in the hands of true cooling connoisseurs. Still, in order to judge about its efficiency, it’s necessary to review it from different angles.


Liquid cooler Eisberg 240L Prestige features the following specifications:

1. heatsink: dimensions – 276x125x30 mm, material – copper;

2. pump: dimensions – 65.7x66.66.9 mm, bearing type – CFF1, performance – 400 liters/hour, nominal voltage – 12 V, noise level – up to 25 dB, recorded power consumption – 6.2 W, MTBF – 50.000 hours;

3. waterblock: material/structure – copper/micro-channel JetStream structure, …
