Meeting New Cooling System Brocken 2 from Alpenfoehn

Only a couple of weeks are left till the official release of a new cooling system Brocken 2 designed by Alpenfoehn. This is a long-awaited launch, since the fist version of the system, entitled Brocken, was honored to gladden the audience long time ago. Hereby, Brocken 2 has got a wee bit modified framework, if compared with the predecessor. Its dimensions together with a fan equal to 146x100x165 mm.

The base is shaped by means of five 6 mm copper heat pipes, tightly pressed together. Aluminum plates of the heatsink seem to be ‘cut’ in the center, unlike the one-piece construction of plates implemented in Brocken.

Active cooling power is ensured by a nine-blade fan of 140 mm standard size, known as WingBoost 2. The fan supports PWM technology that allows altering its rotational speed within the boundaries of 400-1100 RPM. Its activity stimulates the airflow index of 109 CFM, while the noise level barely achieves 19.6 dB (A). WingBoost 2 features small distance between …

Aerocool Updates Several Mainstream PSU Lineups

Aerocool expands its mainstream- and budget-oriented PSU lineups with a batch of new models. Notably, it replenishes such series as VP, VX, and KCAS to satisfy the needs of a wider public. Without doubt, all greenhorns absolutely comply with the company’s best practices implemented within design and performance frameworks.

Hence, Aerocool VP, the most affordable series in the inventory, has been refilled with three models of 850 W, 1000 W and 1200 W power. They are distinguished by the integration of a single +12V rail, support for the Intel Haswell platform, and compliance with C6 and C7 idle states. All units are estimated for 120 thousand hours of foolproof operation, providing up to 84% efficiency in a wide range of workload. Their other peculiar feature is absence of 80Plus certification.

The VX series has been replenished with two low-power PSUs of 400 W and 500 W power. Their ultimate power on +12V rails makes up 324 W and 456 W correspondingly. Both models are …

3D-monitors D2343P-BN and D2743P-BN on matrix IPS from LG

The South Korean manufacturer of digital technology LG enlarged range of branded monitors by two nontrivial models — D2743P-BN and D2343P-BN. Title of the article clearly points out their main advantages — the support of stereoscopic image display quality and availability of the matrix In-Plane Switching with angles of 178 ° / 178 ° horizontal and vertical. LG D2743P-BN has a diagonal of 27 inches, D2343P-BN — 23 inches. The nominal resolution of both displays is 1920x1080 pixels, or, as is now fashionable to say, «Full HD».

New items stand out from their analogues by low power consumption. LG D2743P-BN, on average requires 27 watts of power, and D2343P-BN — 25 watts. Monitors support the «acceleration» of the matrix (Overdrive) to 5 ms, like TN + film screens. Another interesting feature of debutants is the built-in technology Super Resolution, which adds sharpness to blurred images. One click of the 2D-image on the screen can be turned into 3D. In order to view …
