ASRock Showcases H61M-VG4 Motherboard for Ivy Bridge Processors

In spite of the commotion incited by the upcoming release of Intel Haswell processors and the growth of products compatible with their technical requirements, Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs will continue their existence in the market for some time more. For the nonce, ASRock has elaborated a new micro-ATX motherboard, codenamed H61M-VG4. The newly-designed product is based on Intel H61 Express chipset with Socket LGA1155, supporting Intel Ivy Bridge/Sandy Bridge processor lines. According to ASRock, all potential customers will be able to receive quite efficient system for a budget price.

ASRock H61M-VG4 is furnished with two DIMM slots which support two-channel DDR3 memory modules of up to 16 GB capacity, running at 1066 MHz, 1333 MHz and 1600 MHz frequencies. Expansion facilities are realized by means of a single PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot and a single PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot. The connection of optical, hard and solid-state drives becomes possible thanks to the availability of four SATA …

Scythe Offers a Universal CPU Water-Cooling System

Scythe has replenished the line of its products by a new water-cooling system Apsalus III 120. This enclosed cooler is considered to be self-contained and compatible with all contemporary CPUs from Intel and AMD. It should be mentioned that this time Scythe has joined its technological forces with the other cooler supplier. Thus, Apsalus III 120 is a modified version of one of the CPU water-cooling platforms (Gen4) developed by Asetek Inc.

The framework of Apsalus III 120 consists of a copper water block with an integrated pump, two opaque connecting tubes, a heatsink of 119x150x27 mm dimensions, and a single 120 mm fan (Scythe GlideStream 120). The latter is known to have a fixed speed of 1200 RPM; nevertheless, the noise level never exceeds the margin of 24 dB.

This water-cooling system supports the following CPU sockets: Intel (Socket LGA1155, 1156, 1366, 2011) and AMD (Socket FM2, FM1, AM2/(+), AM3/(+). The most beneficial peculiarity pertained to the new model is …

PowerColor Outs an Overclocked Radeon R9 270 OC Graphics Card

Along with other AMD partners, PowerColor has elaborated its own version of Radeon R9 270 adapter. The PowerColor Radeon R9 270 OC is differentiated from rival products by an improved cooling system and factory overclocked frequencies. Its release is scheduled for late November and the retail price won’t hit over $180.

To begin with, this graphics card is naturally based on AMD Curacao Pro GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It consists of 1280 current processors, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. The core runs at 930 MHz frequency and is able to gain 955 MHz frequency on overclocking. The incorporation of GDDR5 memory (2 GB) with 256-bit bus interface ensures some striking bandwidth of 180 Gb/sec; this provides for the support of gaming applications with high resolution. Memory chip operates at 1400 MHz nominal frequency but might gain the index of 5600 MHz of effective frequency on overclocking.

Cooling system, implemented within Radeon R9 270 OC, cannot be called …
