Thermalright Shows up a Hard-Hitting Archon IB-E X2 Cooler

Thermalright is about to release a new ‘tower’ CPU cooler, codenamed Archon IB-E X2. Featuring 155x106x170 mm dimensions, the model supports Intel LGA 2011/115x and AMD FM1/AM2+/AM3+/FM2+ platforms. The launch date is on hold, though the recommended price might rise up 65 EUR.

Thermalright Archon IB-E X2 consists of a voluminous aluminum heatsink with 43 thin pins, which are pierced by eight U-shape nickel-plated heatpipes, and a polished copper base also with a nickel-plated coverage.

The framework is replenished by two 140 mm fans Thermalright TY-141; they are thought to support PWM technology that promotes for speed variation from 900 RPM to 1300 RPM. The fan blades produce up to 74 CFM airflow, consuming not more than 2.4 W power. Average noise level fluctuates within the measures of 17-21 dB.

Moreover, the vendor equips the cooler with a brand thermal compound — Thermalright Chill Factor III. The latter transcends common Chill Factor item in terms of heat …

The Switchover to Nvidia GeForce GTX 760

Nvidia has officially introduced one more graphics adapter from 700 series: GeForce GTX 760. As it was expected earlier, the card is based on GK104 graphics chip (on Kepler architecture) with 1152 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 980 MHz, still this index might be overclocked at average to 1033 MHz.

Reference adapter is furnished with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that employs 256-bit interface. Nonetheless, Nvidia does not exclude the possibility of introducing the models with 4 GB memory capacity. The nominal memory clock frequency equals to 1502 MHz, while its overclocked frequency reaches up 6008 MHz. This adapter is thought to support GPU Boost 2.0 technology that adjusts the overclocking frequency in reliance on GPU thermal condition. Thus, the more powerful cooling system is, the higher frequencies the users might expect.

To continue, power supply subsystem is represented by a couple of 6-contact power sockets. The maximal claimed TDP …
