Real premium-class: motherboard ASUS P8Z77-V Premium review

Most motherboards do not just resemble each other, they are exactly the same devices that for the vast number of users differ only in colour. But this time, a truly interesting product — ASUS P8Z77-V Premium is displayed for users. By appearance it has no different features to other models. However, when looking closer, a 'regular' SSD is noticed right on the board. The motherboard is packed into a standard series box. Of course, the box has many kinds of logos and icons that tell about the characteristics of the product.

Delivery kit of the motherboard ASUS P8Z77-V Premium includes: user manual, user guide of Wi-Fi module, CD with software, plug for the rear panel, card for connecting complete Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the module Wi-Fi, module Bluetooth, Quad-Sli, Triple-SLI, CrossFireX, cables SATA 3, an external unit with two ports USB 3.0.

Remote power USB 3.0 — is much more useful component than it might seem at first glance. The fact is that there are a lot of …

MSI Unveils New Gaming Graphics Card GeForce GTX 760 Hawk

MSI has recently introduced its newest graphics adapter with the support of Twin BIOS technology. Codenamed MSI GeForce GTX 760 Hawk, the card positions itself as an optimal solution for inveterate gamers, as well as for overclockers. The new-comer is based on Nvidia’s GK104 GPU (28 nm technological process) with 1152 CUDA cores. It runs on dynamically heightened frequencies, as compared with the reference model.

Therefore, the nominal clock frequency has been raised from 980 MHz to 1033 MHz, whereas the overclocked frequency has jumped from 1111 MHz to 1176 MHz. As for the memory, represented by 2 GB GDDR5 modules with 256-bit rail, its frequency index has not undergone any changes: 1502 MHz/6008 MHz (nominal/overclocked).

To continue, GTX 760 Hawk takes a fully modified 8-layer PCB as the basis. GPU power supply is ensured by means of an efficient power converter and prime-quality Military Class 4 components, including solid-state Hi-C CAP capacitors with tantalum …

A Triplet of Waterblocks for Titan Z Graphics Solutions from EK Water Blocks

EK Water Blocks, a well-known Slovenian manufacturer of enthusiast-level liquid coolers for GPUs, has just introduced a triplet of waterblocks for the newly arrived Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z adapters. The EK-FC Titan Z – Nickel, EK-FC Titan Z – Nickel (Original CSQ) and EK-FC Titan Z – Acetal + Nickel models are sure to provide the maximal cooling at the highest frequencies both for dual- GPUs and memory chips. All the blocks come with a transparent acrylic cover and a lid from POM ACETAL plastic.

EK-FC Titan Z waterblocks are attributed to full-cover solutions. This implies that they efficiently remove heat not only from graphics cores, but also from GDDR5 memory chips, as well as from voltage regulators of VRM subsystem. Areas in direct contact with the GPUs are equipped with micro-channels of 0.7 mm width. The blocks maintain resistance to the coolant stream; hence, they might be employed along with low-power pumps.

The waterblocks features copper nickel-plated …
