HIS Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2: Graphics Card with an Offbeat Cooler

HIS has recently replenished its Radeon R9 series of graphics cards with a new model – the Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2. Based on AMD Hawaii Pro chip, this card is a combination of an ultimate efficiency and an offbeat design. The integrated GPU runs at an etalon frequency — 947 MHz. No changes have been incorporated into the frequency mode of GDDR5 memory: the 4 GB memory with 512-bus interface runs at nominal/effective 1250/5000 MHz frequency.



The major peculiarity pertained to the model is the employment of a proprietary two-slot cooler, codenamed IceQ X2. It consists of a spacious copper base (40x47.5 mm), a large aluminum heatsink, a pair of 89 mm fans, and five nickel-plated heatpipes: 2x 8 mm and 3x 6 mm. The cooler also accommodates additional heatspreaders, which dissipate heat in memory and VRM sections. Moreover, the framework boasts a dedicated stiffening plate that reduces loading on the printed circuit board.

Deepcool Announces a Pair of Maelstrom Liquid Coolers

Deepcool has extended Maelstrom lineup of liquid coolers with two new models – the 120T and the 240T. The key distinction between the pair is the amount of 120 mm fans employed (one or two). Both come equipped with red LED backlights and show compatibility with the majority of update Intel & AMD platforms. The maximal supported CPU TDP level makes up 140/150 W.



Deepcool Maelstrom 120T comes with a single fan, whereas its companion, 240T, features a couple of fans, based on fluid bearing with 50.000 hours MTBF. The units run at 1800 RPM, creating up to 83.64/167.28 CFM and 17-34 dB of noise (depending on the model).


Both coolers employ a ceramic pump (70x85.6x31.5 mm), estimated for 120.000 hours of fail-proof operation & running at 2400 RPM. The pump features a copper base with micro-channels, connected with solid rubber hoses and an aluminum heatsink. The new-comers are linked to the system by means of 4-pin connectors.

New E2276VWM6 and E2476VWM6 Monitors from AOC are Showcased

Retina stress, triggered by a durable indigo emission, is no longer a threat for users, since AOC has integrated an innovative Anti-Blue Light technology into a pair of high-end monitors. The E2276VWM6 and E2476VWM6 boast an increased from 450 nm to 460 nm wavelength; this reduces harmful blue emissions by 90% and promotes for an ideal color rendering.



Moreover, a couple comes with an implemented Flicker Free technology. It totally eliminates flickering on adjusting LED backlight towards screen brightness. This provides for a better eye care.


To continue, both new-comers from AOC are known to support 1920x1080 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, 1000:1 static contrast, 20M:1 dynamic contrast, 170/160 degrees viewing angles, 2 ms response time (perfect for gaming and dynamic video applications), and 16.7 million of displayed colors. The connection of external devices is realized thanks to one VGA port and one HDMI with MHL support. The latter allows Android-based devices to …
