'Digital' PSU Corsair AX1200i Review

Power supply unit AX1200i designed by Corsair is a high-end product applied primarily in powerful desktop platforms. Its superior characteristics are currently widely spoken about, due to the promotion of the so-called 'digital' technology in PSU layout. 'Digital' PSUs employ digital signal processors instead of traditional analog controllers to provide for the utmost performance, efficiency, and facilities. Under Corsair's words, the implementation of digital options in the development of PC units, and particularly AX1200i model, is a justified measure viewed as from technological, so from economical prospect.

Basic Peculiarities

Corsair AX1200i is delivered in a large dual-base box, consisting of a paper cover and a corrugated cardboard. The box contains all basic information about the unit: +12VDC bus efficiency is estimated at 1204.8W/100A; the correlation between +12VDC bus and the overall power efficiency equals to 1.0 index that is supposed to be an excellent …

Deepcool Aeolus Big Frost Presentation

Deepcool Industries, a renowned manufacturer of cooling systems, has officially announced the launch of its new dual-tower processor cooler Aeolus Big Frost. The prototype of this model has been already presented at Computex 2012 and is currently released as a ready-made product. This model is compatible with practically all CPU types available in the market from Intel and AMD manufacturers. In addition, it is able to support FM2/FM1 platform.

Deepcool Aeolus Big Frost is a simplified version of Assassin series. Despite this fact, the new cooler preserves the framework standards with dual-section radiators. Aeolus Big Frost has got copper base which is equipped with six U-shaped heat pipes (6 mm each pipe). Those pipes are pierced by a large number of aluminum plates.

The radiators are cooled down by 120 mm fans; the rotation speed of the first fan is able to achieve 1300 rpm, while the speed of the second fan fluctuates between 900 to 1500 rpm. The noise level also …

Zalman Intros Three New Graphics Cards with VF1500 Cooler

Zalman, a well-known manufacturer of CPU coolers, PC cases and graphics solutions, introduces three new graphics card models, codenamed GeForce GTX 600 D5 OC VF1500, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 OC VF1500. All three models are equipped with a brand two-slot VF1500 cooler. Its framework consists of four heatpipes which transfer heat from GPU surface to an aluminum heatsink. This heatsink is accompanied by a couple of 92 mm fans, the maximal rotational speed of which achieves 1500 RPM. If compared with a reference cooler, VF1500 reduces GPU operational temperature at 25 degrees (from 81 to 56 degrees), producing 10 dB less noise (26 dB vs 36 dB).

The first model is based on Nvidia GK106 processor, designed under 28 nm technological process. It is characterized by heightened clock frequencies: nominal 1006 MHz against reference 980 MHz, and dynamic 1059 MHz against reference 1033 MHz.

The other two models, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX …
