‘Ice-Cold’ Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 780 Ti HerculeZ X3 Ultra Review

The newest top GPUs designed by Nvidia and AMD are characterized by higher temperatures and higher noise levels, as compared to the GPUs of the previous generation. That is the price of more power. Nonetheless, average customers cannot be satisfied with efficiency only, so they were patiently waiting for non-reference products with more appropriate cooling. Inno3D always tries its best to comply with the demands of exacting PC enthusiasts, gamers and home users, hence the release of iChill GeForce GTX 780 Ti HerculeZ X3 Ultra graphics cards was much a desire. This model offers an ideal combination of performance along with decreased operational temperatures.

Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.

Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.

The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.

Corsair bundles the …
