ECS Develops Haswell-Compatible Motherboard Z87H3-A2X Extreme

At the cusp of an official release of Intel’s fourth generation processors each hardware designer tries to elaborate new Haswell-compatible components. Motherboard manufacturers are probably the ones to introduce the lion’s share of such products. ECS is not an exception. According to the data provided by a reputable source, ECS is soon going to release its newest prime-class board codenamed Z87H3-A2X Extreme. The first meeting with the new-comer is planned within the boundaries of Computex 2013 exhibition taking place in June.



As seen from the codename, ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme is based on Intel Z87 Express chipset covered by a black-and-red heatsink. The model employs full-sized printed circuit board, Socket LGA1150, and 12-phase VRM for CPU power supply with gold-plate solid-state capacitors. Power subsystem elements are cooled down by a voluminous CoolTech V heatsink. This heatsink is connected with a chipset one by means of a nickel-plated copper heat pipe.

The First Glance at MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK & Z97 Gaming 9 ACK Mainboards

MSI could not resist the temptation to officially introduce a pair of new gaming mainboards: the X99S Gaming 9 ACK and the Z97 Gaming 9 ACK. The key distinction of new-comers from analogue models without ‘ACK’ attribute lies in the implementation of dedicated gaming network controllers: Qualcomm Atheros Killer 1525 and Killer E2205. The first one is supposed to support 802.11 ac standard that guarantees 867 Mb/sec throughput bandwidth; it also ensures less data deference. This provides for a faster network traffic processing and, as a result, — for a huge advantage in online gaming.



The E-ATX MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK motherboard is based on Intel X99 chipset, estimated for Intel Core i7-5000 CPUs with Socket LGA2011-v3. The model features 8x DIMM slots for DDR4-333 MHz memory (4-channel operational mode) of up to 128 GB capacity. Storage subsystem offers eight SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities are ensured by means of five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. The list of …

Thermaltake Showcases an Original Bigwater 760 Pro Cooling System

Thermaltake Technology, a renowned Taiwanese designer of varied PC hardware pieces, is going to release its new original water-cooling system, codenamed Bigwater 760 Pro. This cooler is targeting powerful processors that require no less powerful cooling. The product demonstrates a wide compatibility with all novel processors that support Socket LGA775, LGA1366, LGA115x, LGA2011, FM1, FM2, AM2(+), and AM3(+).



Bigwater 760 Pro consists of three major parts: waterblock, head block and a couple of hoses. The implemented waterblock features nickeled-copper base of 45x35 mm dimensions. The head block features 252.8x145.8x84 mm dimensions and takes two 5.25-inch bays within the chassis. Its framework involves a pump, a heatsink and a tank for coolant.


The pump is based on a ceramic bearing and produces not more than 16 dB noise. Its performance level achieves 500 liters/hour, while Mean Time Between Failures index is estimated at eighty thousand hours. The integrated heatsink is …
