Cooler Master Gets Ready to Roll Out a Powerful V8 GTS Cooling System

Cooler Master is going to release V8 GTS CPU cooling system – the newest addition to V-series products. The model has got a spectacular design with a large heatsink block, two high-performance fans, and black plastic coverage. The overall cooler’s dimensions make up 154x149.8x166.5 mm. V8 GTS is differentiated also by a high compatibility with a range of CPU sockets, naming AMD AM2/AM2+, AM3/AM3+, FM2/FM1 and Intel LGA2011/1366/1156/1155/1150/775.

Unlike other air-coolers, an elaboration from Cooler Master can boast the availability of a vapor chamber in the framework. This chamber is known to spread heat much faster than heatpipes do and protects the CPU from overheating on heightened loading. Moreover, the presence of this vapor chamber guarantees that the heat is evenly distributed between all incorporated heat pipes.

Except the above mentioned components, V8 GTS framework consists of three independent heatsink blocks, eight copper heat pipes, and a pair of 140 mm …

Graphics Card HIS 7850 IceQ X Turbo X Review

The number of graphics solutions designed by HIS cannot be figured from a cursory calculation only. Indeed, the company's product line counts dozens of cards destined at various audiences, with various needs and budgets. Take HIS HD 7850 series alone: it consists of ten models (three with 1GB memory and seven with 2GB memory). The latest HIS 7850 IceQ X Turbo X belongs to '2GB echelon' and is distinguished by the heightened GPU and memory frequency. Upon the whole, this graphics adapter features outstanding cooling and overclocking facilities.

Design and PCB

Graphics adapter HIS 7850 IceQ X Turbo X is a standard representative of the second HD 7850 revision. It is housed on a short printed circuit board and is equipped with only a single power socket, two heatpipes and a large fan. HIS developers advanced the heatpipes outside the board to elongate its contours; nevertheless, this card can't be considered voluminous, since its width hasn't been touched at all. The top part …

Zalman Introduces Three New Fan Series for PC Cases

Zalman, a highly-acclaimed designer of miscellaneous hardware pieces, has elaborated three completely new series of low-noise fans: ZM-FDB(SF), ZM-LED(SF) and ZM-Plus(SF). The ‘triple’ embraces the models of 80 mm, 92 mm and 120 mm dimensions. The fans do not support PWM technology, thus feature a stable rotational speed. The most peculiar feature is low noise level (not more than 23 dB), despite the range of speed.

Zalman ZM-FDB(SF) are characterized by the implementation of high-quality fluid-dynamic bearings. Their lifespan is estimated as 150.000 hours. The other two fan series – Zalman ZM-LED(SF) and Zalman ZM-Plus(SF) — involve long-life bearings, which are thought to be quite reliable and effective. Their framework features dust-repelling mechanisms and this promotes for the elongated lifespan.

Certainly, the ‘triple’ enjoys similar features. For instance, all the fans employ an original Shark Fin blades design. It allows for the decrease of airflow …
