Xigmatek Intros New CPU Cooler Gaia II

Xigmatek, an outstanding manufacturer of cutting-edge PC components, announces the release of a new CPU cooler, entitled Gaia II. The model is developed in accordance with a traditional tower-like framework and might be truly called a universal cooling solution. It supports a large variety of platforms for processors with TDP level of not higher than 150 W: Intel Socket LGA 775/1366/1156 and AMD Socket AM2(+)/AM3(+)/FM2/FM1.

Cooler Gaia II is designed with the direct implementation of H.D.T. technology (Heat Pipe Direct Touch). This implies that all three copper heatpipes, which stem from the heatsink base, come into direct contact with the CPU surface. The heatpipes themselves have got U-shape structure and 8 mm dimensions. They pierce ‘multi-plate’ aluminum heatsink to provide for a better heat dissipation.

The model is delivered with a pre-installed 120 mm fan with bright orange blades; it is fixed to one of the heatsink sides and housed in a black frame. The fan is …

Announcement of video card Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 Super Overclock

The efforts of Gigabyte engineers culminated in the release of the Radeon HD 7970 Super Overclock, also known as GV-R797SO-3GD. This is a monstrous construction with height of 64 mm (3.5 expansion slots) and a cooling system WindForce 5X. As well as preparing to be released GeForce GTX 680 SOC, the new adapter uses a five high-speed (> 4000 rev / min) fan size of 40 mm, copper evaporation chamber, and five copper heat pipes.

WindForce 5X – is one of the most expensive VGA-coolers, except for models with water blocks and liquid cooling system. It will allow to overclock Gigabyte GV-R797SO-3GD up to frequencies of 1155/7620 MHz. However, neither the temperature nor the noise performance of video card can be considered satisfactory: 85 degrees under load and 91 ° C for overclocking with increased voltage, and 8000 rpm in a heavy-duty (1185 MHz, 1.375 V) explains the situation.

Printed circuit board Radeon HD 7970 SOC is reinforced with five polymer capacitors NEC / …

Meet New Frameless U2717D Monitor from Dell

Taking into account an ascending popularity of WQHD displays, Dell decided to expand its portfolio by a new high-resolution monitor – the UltraSharp U2717D. The model is based on 27-inch IPS panel with the top brightness index (350 cd/m2). It is also notable for the widest viewing angles (178/178 degrees) and a relatively fast response time (6 ms). Pricing has not been announced yet.

Dell UltraSharp U2717D features 2560x1440 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and 1000:1 contrast index. It promises the coverage of 99% RGB environment as well as the highest color rendering (DeltaE <2).

The other attraction of the monitor is nearly frameless design: the display is edged by an ultra-thin frame, replenished by a multifunction stand. The latter promotes for the adjustment of height, angle of slope, and aspect positioning (swivel & pivot). The display boasts a rich assembly of external interfaces; thus, it offers a pair of HDMI 1.4 ports with support for MHL 2.0 options, a pair …
