AMD Readies a Pair of Power-Efficient Desktop Processors

The Internet community is engrossed in a lively debate about the upcoming release of two new Richland desktop processors from AMD. The company has not made any official claims yet, however MSI marked the pair as an appropriate match for some of its new motherboards. Those Richland CPUs, which has already been launched by AMD, proved to be rather power-efficient, featuring 65 W and 100 W TDP level. But new entries – AMD A8-6500T and AMD A10-6700T – are thought to receive 45 W TDP package.



Upon the whole, AMD Richland processors position themselves as affordable, efficient and reliable solutions that can be employed for the assembling of systems with moderate or heightened demands. Some CPU models might be even used for the assembling of gaming systems. However, along with high performance, Richland processors are rather power-efficient; this makes them an ideal choice for home-based and corporate-class PC platforms.


As for the announced models, their specifications are …

SilverStone Primera PM01: Top-Notch Gaming Chassis

SilverStone is glad to announce the launch of a first-class chassis, entitled Primera PM01 (dimensions: 571x560x220 mm). The key design specification is freedom from front sections; this allows installing up to three 140-mm fans with blue or red LED backlight. One of the side panels features an acrylic observation window that serves up all hardware in details.



SilverStone Primera PM01 is ideal for the build-up of micro-ATX/ATX systems. The layout configuration offers place for 7 expansion slots, 9 storage solutions (4x 2.5/3.5-inch, 5x 2.5-inch), quite long graphics cards (up to 419 mm), high CPU coolers (up to 180 mm) as well as typical ATX PSUs of 240 mm in length.


The steel-and-plastic case is primarily equipped with a 140-mm fan. The top panel is ready to accommodate 2/3 additional fans. In order to organize a high-performance air cooling, the manufacturer has integrated a 10-slot hub. The chassis boasts a well-designed cable management, dust filters and a 4-zone LED …

New Freezer 12/12 CO Coolers Push the Arctic Company Forward

On a recent day, the Arctic Co. has broadened its CPU coolers range with the Freezer 12 and Freezer 12 CO (CO means “continuous operation”) samples under the ACFRE00027A and ACFRE00030A code names.



The heatsink is the same for both coolers; fans are different, though. The Freezer 12 fan is built on a hydrodynamic bearing, and Freezer 12 CO is based on a fan with a dual ball bearing, which operates extremely long comparing to the better part of models.


The heat dissipator is designed so, that U-shaped 6 mm copper heat pipes stay in touch with each other, thus enhancing the cooling system productivity. The aluminium pressure plate and 45 bent radiator fins also contribute to that.


Fans start to operate at the PWM signal with 40 % pulse width and ensure passive CPU cooling while completing trivial tasks. This lets coolers work silently during such periods. The ultimate noise rate is 22.5 dBA, and the max speed comes up to 2,000 rpm.


Both Arctic novelties support …
