MSI B75IA-E33 - cost-effective Mini-ITX board for processors Ivy Bridge

In early August, it was mentioned about the fact that MSI developer of motherboards is preparing to release three new products in the form factor Mini-ITX on chipsets A85, B75, and Z77. As it turned out, the first low-cost board will be MSI B75IA-E33 — it will start selling in Europe at the end of this week at prices ranging from € 95.



The functionality of this product is limited with respect to the other two models; however, a set of components in B75IA-E33 is very decent. LGA1155 processor socket is energized by three phases (provides additional power to the ATX12V 4-pin), hidden under a small cooler chipset Intel B75. Available one connector PCI Express 3.0 x16, two slots for memory modules DDR3-1066/1333/1600 total up to 16 GB, SATA port 6Gb / s and SATA 3 Gbit / s (3 units) to connect storage devices.


A pair of USB 3.0 on the rear panel are completed with a 19-pin connector on the PCB, through which on the front panel I / O can be taken two SuperSpeed USB. The …

SilverStone Heligon HE01 - a new super-cooler

The Taiwanese company introduced a bulky cooler SilverStone Heligon HE01, which is designed to cool down more or less all types of modern CPUs — from Intel LGA775 up to LGA2011 and from AMD AM2 to AMD AM3 + / FM2.



The construction does not weigh less than 1.1 kg, since in addition to two-part radiator (926 g) it is equipped with fan of 140x140x38 mm size. Linear dimensions of Heligon HE01 are 140 mm in width, 119 mm in length and 160 mm in height. Staples that hold the fan, take a few millimetres of space.


The thickness of a pair of «towers», joined by six nickel-plated copper heat pipes with a diameter of 6 mm, is uneven. The intense air flow passes successively through a thin array of aluminium fins, and then through the fan, afterwards through a larger section of the radiator. Copper base with nickel cover is protected with a film from scratches.


The manufacturer claims that Heligon HE01 will cope with the withdrawal of 300 watts of heating power.

Arctic Cooling Intros Two Modifications of Freezer CPU Cooler

Arctic Cooling AG, a well-known Swiss developer of cooling solutions, has recently introduced its newest CPU cooler, Freezer, in two modifications: i11 and A11. Both versions have got tower-like framework, featuring 108x90x130 mm dimensions. The Freezer i11 is compatible with Intel LGA 2011/1156/1155/1150 socket platforms, whereas its companion is intended for AMD Socket FM1, FM2, AM3, AM3+, AM2, and AM2+. To say more, this pair is able to cool down the ‘blaze’ of CPUs with 150 W TDP.



Arctic Freezer i11/A11 consists of an aluminum heatspreader with forty-five plates, three U-shape copper heatpipes, and one 92 mm fan. The heatpipes are thought to support direct contact technology that dramatically improves heat transfer process.


The implemented fan is developed on a fluid dynamic bearing and is equipped with a PWM controller. The latter assures that the blades could change their rotational speed within the ranges from 500 RPM to 2000 RPM. Herein, the maximal airflow …
