Gelid Announces a New Black Edition Supercooler

Gelid, a company known for its high-end cooling systems, announces the release of a new air supercooler, codenamed Black Edition. This model is characterized by a prime cooling effect that is able to manage with even an overclocked red-hot processor. Upon the whole, Gelid Black Edition can boast a larger number of heat pipes, wider area of heat dissipation, and quieter operation.



Gelid Black Edition is known to support all contemporary CPU sockets designed by Intel (LGA 2011, 1366, 1156, 1155, 775) and AMD (FM1, FM2, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+). This makes the cooler highly-compatible with versatile PC systems. The model is developed in the most spread tower framework with the two-section heatsink; this promotes for the installation of more than two fans which are able to ensure the maximal cooling activity. The base houses seven heat pipes (three of them feature 8 mm and four others — 6 mm). This implies that the model will play its best within the systems based on Intel X79 …

Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.



In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.


Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …

Galax Unleashes GeForce GTX 970 and 980 HOF Graphics Cards

Galax, the company created due to a merger of Galaxy and KFA2, entered the market with a couple of new graphics solutions: the GeForce GTX 970 HOF and the GeForce GTX980 HOF cards. Both greenhorns are intended for enthusiasts longing for the best overclocking potential. Thus, they offer dual BIOS support for safe modification of key parameters and a pair of advanced utilities: Hyper Boost and Voltage Tool.



Galax GeForce GTX 970 HOF and 980 HOF models are powered by Nvidia GM204 GPU (Maxwell generation) with a striking factory overclocking index. Therewith, GTX 970 HOF runs at 1216 MHz (nominal) and 1380 MHz (dynamic) frequencies instead of etalon 1051 MHz/1178 MHz ones. In its turn, GTX 980 HOF operates at 1304 MHz (nominal) and 1418 MHz (dynamic) frequencies instead of reference 1126 MHz/1216 MHz ones. Moreover, the manufacturer swears that this couple is able to overclock up to 1.5 GHz frequency on air cooling and up to 2.1 GHz frequency on liquid cooling.
