Review and testing of coolers GlacialTech Igloo H46 PWM and Igloo H58 PWM

The company GlacialTech Inc. known as a producer of cheap cooling systems aimed primarily at the lower and medium price segment. They are intended solely to cool the non-overclocked CPU. At the same time, GlacialTech has already made attempts to produce more efficient coolers that can cope with cooling of processors with high heat. It was the Siberia and Alaska, and F101 even before. Developing on its trend, the company has recently released two new models aimed at the medium price segment. It is about Igloo H46 PWM and Igloo H58 PWM.



Both coolers are available in the same decorated cardboard boxes, each on the right side shows the pictures of coolers and a list of supported platforms. On the other side of packaging there are specifications and key features of cooling systems. Packaging for both models are the same: it includes a steel universal clamping plate (backplate) with an adhesive base, two pairs of mounting with screws and key, two pairs of wire staples for installation …

HIS Teases New Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock Graphics Card

HIS is glad to introduce one more high-end solution: the Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock graphics card that is targeting high-performance PC systems. The model employs turbine-type cooling system with a branded IceQ cooler. It consists of a voluminous copper base (35x28 mm), an aluminum heatsink, four nickel-plated heat-pipes (2x 8 mm and 2x 6 mm), as well as a single 80 mm turbine fan. Such cooling is ideal for multi-GPU configurations in AMD CrossFireX mode, since the distance between adapters does not influence the efficiency of their fans.



The new-comer is based on AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU (28 nm, GCN) with 2048 stream processors. It runs at standard frequencies: 850 MHz – nominal and 1000 MHz – dynamic. Memory is introduced by 3 GB GDDR5 modules, which run at standard 1500 MHz frequencies and reach some 6000 MHz effective index.


To continue, HIS Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock features four connectivity interfaces: a pair of mini-DisplayPort ports, one DVI-I and …

Meet Tiny B150M Night Elf Mainboard from MSI

MSI has added a new micro-ATX motherboard to its Performance Gaming series of products. Entitled B150M Night Elf, the new-comer is differentiated by an outstanding black-and-red PCB design with a stylish LED lighting. The model is based on Intel B150 chipset and supports LGA1151-compatible CPUs on Skylake architecture.



MSI B150M Night Elf receives power via 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS connectors. The VRM system is organized according to 4+2-phase scheme with passive cooling. The PCB offers four slots for the mounting of DDR4-2133 MHz memory modules (up to 64 GB capacity), two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots, one PCIe 3.0 x16, and one PCIe 3.0 x16@4.


Storage subsystem is introduced by six SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, whereas for the connection of various external devices there are six USB 3.1 ports (10 Gb/s). Network facilities are ensured by means of Intel I219-V controller. At the same time, audio subsystem Audio Boost 3 employs Realtek ALC1150 controller.


Furthermore, the rear panel …
