Motherboard Asus P8Z77M-Pro Review

Functional possibilities of motherboards are not 100% dependent on their dimensions, as it was considered in earlier times. Quite the contrary, nowadays it's feasible to complement a high-performance system of compact dimensions. In this light, the majority of motherboard designers replenish their lineup of products with models of mATX format to propose efficiency and ergonomics simultaneously. Asus can boast a number of motherboard of various form-factors, and mATX is not an exclusion. Its latest model P8Z77M-Pro is capable to support all up-dated technologies, including multi-graphics (3-Way CrossFire, SLI, and Lucid Virtu MVP).

General Peculiarities

Asus P8Z77M-Pro is developed in mATX form factor. The predominant color gamut includes brown, blue and black tints. Capacitor fins have got composite gamut of silver-blue tints. The power is enabled via the main 24-contact ATX socket, and an additional 8-contact one. Such combination is basically applied in full-size …

Asus Announces ROG Poseidon GTX 780 Adapter with DirectCU H2O

Asus has officially introduced a new add-on to the GTX 780 graphics cards series – the ROG Poseidon GTX 780 (codename: Poseidon-GTX780-P-3GD5). The new-comer is initially differentiated by the incorporation of a hybrid DirectCU H2O cooling system, as well as of prime-quality components. The heart of the model is Nvidia GK110 GPU with 2304 CUDA cores. It operates at 1006 MHz. the GPU is accompanied by 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (384-bit bus), running at 1502 MHz (6008 MHz – efficient).

Asus ROG Poseidon GTX 780 employs a qualitative printed circuit board that boasts 10-phase Digi+ VRM digital power subsystem. Reliability of operation is ascribed to Black metallic solid-state capacitors, ferrite chokes with Super Alloy Power support, and classy transistors. They take care of the card’s lifespan, which, according to some reports, is five times longer than rival models feature.

To continue, hybrid DirectCU H2O combines a traditional air cooler along with liquid cooling. The …

Arctic Cooling Unveils New Freezer i32 & A32 CPU Coolers

Arctic Cooling AG replenishes its line of CPU coolers with a couple of new-comers. The Freezer i32 and the Freezer A32 feature analogous dimensions (123x95x150 mm), but are targeting to work with different platforms. The first model is compatible with Intel Socket LGA 2011 and 115x platforms, whereas the second version is predestined for the CPUs targeting AMD AM2/AM2+, AM3/AM3+, FM1 and FM2 platforms.

Arctic Cooling Freezer i32 & A32 consist of an aluminum heatsink with 45 thin plates and four U-shaped 6-mm copper heatpipes which support direct touch technology. It goes without saying that these coolers come equipped with a fan. This is a 120 mm propeller that supports PWM technology; the latter enables the change of rotational speed from 0 to 1350 RPM. The maximal TDP level of the catered CPUs should not exceed 150 W.

A dedicated bearing technology with alloy/lubricant combination provides for a lower friction and higher heat dissipation efficiency. The nominal delivery …
