Greet Fractal Design Kelvin Liquid Coolers in Various Configurations

Fractal Design comes out with a new series of liquid coolers. The ‘Kelvin’ lineup is introduced by three models – T12, S24, S36 – which are differentiated by the amount of fans. The triple is targeting any up-to-date system based on Intel or AMD CPUs (Intel LGA 2011/1366/1150 and AMD FM2+/FM2/FM1/AM2+/AM2/AM3+/AM3). Their price is set at $99.99, $119.99 and $139.99 for one-fan, two-fan and three-fan model correspondingly.

Fractal Design Kelvin coolers boast an enclosed design that does not require additional maintenance during operation. They consist of a waterblock with a copper base, a powerful pump with a ceramic bearing, a copper heatspreader, and 1/2/3 Silent HP fans (of 120 mm dimensional type). The latter support PWM technology that adjusts rotational speed within 700-1700 PRM ranges; they are ready to produce up to 62.4 CFM airflow at 26.9 dB noise.

It should be noted that ‘Kelvin’ coolers might be expanded by new components. For instance, the T12 is …

Zalman Introduces Highly Efficient FX70 Passive Cooler

Zalman, a renowned South Korean designer of various hardware solutions, has recently introduced its latest CPU passive cooler, entitled FX70. The new-entry features 110x140x158 mm dimensions and comes without any fans. However, if there is a need to cool down CPUs with the TDP level higher than 80 W, the customer is free to enhance the facilities by adding two 120 mm fans. The latter are fixed to the heatsink by means of four brackets.

Zalman FX70 is an optimal choice for the following platforms: Intel LGA 2011/1366/115x/775 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+. This cooler fits in any mid-tower ATX and larger PC chassis. The cooler’s framework consists of a copper base, pierced by six nickel-plated heatpipes, and of fifteen heatsink plates with an offbeat design, codenamed Twist; they are called to dramatically improve the process of heat management.

Fanless framework is regarded to be an advantage due to three reasons. First of all, pure heatsink provides absolutely no …

Corsair Introduces HXi 80Plus Platinum Power Supply Units

Corsair, a multi-profile American company, starts shipping new high-end PSUs of HXi series. The series currently combines three models with a totally modular design and the employment of Japanese electrolytic capacitors. Corsair HXi 750 W, Corsair HXi 850 W and Corsair HXi 1000 W models are distinguished by the highest efficiency of 91% that results in the conferment of 80Plus Platinum certificate.

Corsair HXi power supply units demonstrate compatibility with Intel Core CPUs (4th generation) and AMD’s latest APUs. The triple totally corresponds to ATX standard of the latest version. Cooling of all internal components is realized due to a low-noise 140 mm fan, based on a fluid-film bearing. Moreover, the implementation of Zero-RPM Fan Mode enables the blades to rotate only on the load pickup.

The units are furnished with a large set of protection tools, saving the layout from off-nominal conditions: voltage overloading, power overloading, input voltage overloading, …
