Deepcool is preparing a new cooler with heat pipes

Deepcool production company of inexpensive and quite efficient cooling systems has provided a sample of CPU cooler — Big Frost (tentative codename), which is an extension of current Frostwin model. Previous model has 4 sintered powder heatpipes, which conduct heat from the processor to protect it from overheating. Also, like a new model, it has 120mm fans.



New model has a simple design, but strict, almost «standard», forms will not prevent it from showing a decent performance. It works with less noise and performs an effective cooling. Big Frost consists of a nickel-plated copper base with a miniature auxiliary radiator, six U-shaped copper heatpipes, each of 6 mm in diameter, and two sections of aluminium plates of similar thickness. Pre-installed fans are running at different speeds. One turns with intensity of 1300 r / min (22.6 dB noise), the other — in the range from 900 to 1500 rev / min (21,4-32,1 dB).

MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GT LP – a Low-Profile Graphics Card for Compact Systems

According to computational performance, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti series graphics cards are ranked at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 level, but their power consumption rate is lower compared to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950. This makes them excellent game video cards variants for compact chassis, if the monitor resolution doesn’t exceed Full HD.



This very context induced the production of MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GT LP low-profile Graphics Cards, which dimensions are 182 х 69 х 35 mm. They are based on NVIDIA GP107-400 graphics engine with 768 CUDA, the frequency formula of which fits the reference value of 1290 / 1392 MHz. 4 GB of GDDR5-memory with the 128-bit bus and the effective frequency of 7008 MHz operate concurrently.


The MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GT LP model internal nodes are cooled by the low-profile cooler, the construction of which contains a heat sink and a pair of axial-flow fans. The element base is of high quality and corresponds to the MSI Military Class 4 …
