Gigabyte Showcases GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming WaterForce WB 8G Video Card

Gigabyte has developed a video card, based on Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 adapter, which provides for freedom in choosing the liquid cooling system with an open contour. The GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming WaterForce WB 8G comes with a pre-installed water block that entirely covers the frontal part, enhancing the cooling effect on the GPU, power elements as well as memory chips. In order to achieve the maximal heat dissipation performance, the user just needs to connect the card to the liquid cooler contour.



Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming WaterForce WB 8G takes Nvidia GP104-400 GPU as the basis (Pascal micro-architecture). The GPU consists of 2560 CUDA, 160 TMUs & 64 ROPs. The model is able to operate in two modes: OC and Gaming. In OC mode the core runs at 1784/1936 MHz frequency (basic/dynamic), while in Gaming mode the showings are more modest: 1759/1898 MHz frequency.


To continue, the GPU is accompanied by 8 GB of GDDR5X memory (256-bit interface) which operates at …

Zalman Intros CNPS8X Optima CPU Cooler

Zalman is considered to be a key player in PC hardware field mainly due to a perfect combination of quality, functionality and price tags. CPU coolers are not an exception, since they ensure efficient and low-noise cooling of hard-hitting processors. The company’s latest CNPS8X Optima cooler is all about innovation that turns it around. Improved framework makes the model compatible with practically all platforms from Intel and AMD, save for Intel Socket LGA 2011/2011-v3/1366.



Zalman CNPS8x Optima employs a large heatsink, three copper heatpipes, and a single 92 mm fan. The latter is based on long-life bearing and features 4-contact connector. It is able to rotate at about 1200 RPM, producing not more than 30 dB noise.


The list of innovative technologies integrated into the cooler includes:


— Direct Touch Heatpipe (DTH) technology wherein all three heatpipes are in direct touch with a heatspreader. This accelerates heat dissipation process, enhancing overall …

Graphics Card MSI N650 Ti PE 1GD5/OC Review

PC hardware of average price category is traditionally in demand with a wide range of customers. Graphics cards are not exception, especially if the manufacturers offer truly outstanding facilities for comparatively medium price. The launch of GeForce GTX 650 Ti adapter raised an army of graphics solutions based on it; still, each company tries to deviate in some terms from the reference model. Thus, MSI introduced N650 Ti Power Edition 1GD5/OC model which takes GTX 650 Ti adapter as the basis, but employs fundamentally original printed circuit board and cooling system.



Integration


Graphics card MSI N650 Ti PE 1GD5/OC features all attributes ascribed to Power Edition series. Printed circuit board has been elongated to 230 mm, as compared to the 154 mm in reference GeForce GTX 650 models. Along with the PCB elongation, MSI implemented a reinforced 5-phase VRM scheme (4+1) that is intended at operational intensification on heightened frequencies. The connection of additional …
