Cougar Vortex Fans: the Secret of Success

Nowadays a lot of hardware developers employ Vortex fans from Cougar in the design of various PC components, including CPU coolers and graphics cards. Such demand is primarily explained by an elaborate approach to the fans' framework construction. Profound testing is not the last thing to contribute to the company's success. Indeed, since the launch date in 2011, Vortex line has been enjoying great popularity throughout the world and, especially, on American and European markets.

Therefore, Cougar has designed unique fan impellers that ensure a balanced correlation between such parameters as static pressure, noise level and airflow. The implementation of aerodynamic elements on the internal part of the frame in combination with the grooves on the impellers are able to promote for an improved airflow focusing; this is achieved due to the acceleration of airflow in edge area.

All Vortex fans are based on a hydrodynamic bearing that provides for the prolonged lifetime and …

Deepcool Releases CPU Cooler Gammaxx 400

The assortment of products designed by Deepcool Industries company has been replenished with a high-end processor cooler Gammaxx 400. The new arrival is differentiated by an outstanding efficiency and minimal noise level. Cooler’s dimensions (which equal to 135x76x159 mm) facilitate its installation into any standard casing of ATX form-factor.

Gammaxx 400 is equipped with four sintered U-shaped heat pipes that have direct contact with the processor surface. This promotes for the improved cooling activity. The solid aluminum radiator accommodates fifty edges to ensure the appropriate heat dissipation. The radiator comprises 120 mm fan with a hydrodynamic bearing and four blue LEDs. The average rotation speed achieves the index of 900-1500 r/min, while the noise level does not exceed the margin of 32.1 dB.

Cooler Deepcool Gammaxx 400 is activated by means of 4-contact socket which provides for the revolution monitoring and noise level reduction via PWM option. This model is …

Be Quiet! Adds a Couple of Dark Base 900 Cases

Be Quiet! has supplemented its lineup of PC cases with two Super-Midi Tower models: the Dark Base 900 & the Dark Base Pro 900. Both new-comers allow for the installation of ATX/XL-ATX/E-ATX motherboards with the maximum of 8 expansion slots. The chassis is made of SECC steel with a mixture of ABS-plastic inserts. The Pro version comes with a side window made of a quenched glass.

Be Quiet! Dark Base 900 cases (585.5x577.2x242.7 mm) feature a pair of 5.25-inch drives bays, seven 3.5-inch bays as well as fifteen 2.5-inch drive bays. They are ready to accommodate CPU coolers of up to 185 mm in height, PSU of up to 284 mm in length, and graphics cards of up to 325 mm (with the drive bay)/470 mm (without the drive bay) in length. The range of external interfaces includes a single HD audio port & four USB ports (2x v 2.0, 2x v 3.0).

The difference between the two lies in the implemented cooling system. Both chassis come with an integrated fan controller. The controller inbuilt …
