Midi-Tower Chassis CoolerMaster HAF XM Review

Chassis of full-tower form factor have always been considered an appropriate base for the integration of super computers. Such chassis usually have enough spacing for the installation of solid cooling systems, graphics cards, as well as several hard drives. However, full-tower means voluminous, and not everyone is ready to 'add' this chassis to the surrounding design. Thus, there appeared a perfect substitute for full-tower devices: midi-tower chassis. Despite the existing outlooks concerning midi-tower capacity, the market is replenishing with products that are called to comply with contemporary design and performance requirements. CoolerMaster HAF XM belongs to the range of midi-tower chassis which show unmatched efficiency and are ergonomic in design simultaneously.

Design and Layout

Chassis CoolerMaster HAF XM is differentiated by a singular charisma in design and comparatively compact dimensions. The chassis is designed in a restrained manner, but with an obvious …

Welcome in a New Professional FirePro W8100 Graphics Card from AMD

AMD has filled up its professional line of graphics cards with a new model: the AMD FirePro W8100. According to the manufacturer, the greenhorn is an optimal choice for computer-aided design, video editing, compositing, visualization, color grading, and computing tasks. The release is arranged for July, adding the variety of different versions from AMD partners, like Sapphire and others.

AMD FirePro W8100 is based on AMD GCN 2.0 graphics core with 2560 stream processors and 40 cluster units. Memory subsystem comes up with 8 GB of GDDR5 chips, featuring 512-bit interface. Its data transfer bandwidth equals to 320 Gb/sec. Upon the whole, the peak efficiency of single-precision computations achieves 4.2 TFLOPS, whereas the peak efficiency of dual-precision computations makes up 2.1 TFLOPS.

One of the major distinctive features attributed to the graphics card is the integration of four DisplayPort 1.2 ports. They allow for the connection of up to 4 monitors simultaneously; …

Arctic Cooling Intros Two Modifications of Freezer CPU Cooler

Arctic Cooling AG, a well-known Swiss developer of cooling solutions, has recently introduced its newest CPU cooler, Freezer, in two modifications: i11 and A11. Both versions have got tower-like framework, featuring 108x90x130 mm dimensions. The Freezer i11 is compatible with Intel LGA 2011/1156/1155/1150 socket platforms, whereas its companion is intended for AMD Socket FM1, FM2, AM3, AM3+, AM2, and AM2+. To say more, this pair is able to cool down the ‘blaze’ of CPUs with 150 W TDP.

Arctic Freezer i11/A11 consists of an aluminum heatspreader with forty-five plates, three U-shape copper heatpipes, and one 92 mm fan. The heatpipes are thought to support direct contact technology that dramatically improves heat transfer process.

The implemented fan is developed on a fluid dynamic bearing and is equipped with a PWM controller. The latter assures that the blades could change their rotational speed within the ranges from 500 RPM to 2000 RPM. Herein, the maximal airflow …
