MSI AM1I: Motherboard with Military Class 4 Hardware Base

MSI is one of the first manufacturers to introduce a motherboard for the newly launched AMD AM1 platform. The MSI AM1I features rather compact dimensions (170x170 mm) but its mini-ITX form-factor does not affect the specified functional possibilities for entry-level systems. The model supports AMD Athlon/Sempron processors for the above-mentioned socket.

The employment of Military Class 4 hardware base is supposed to be a major advantage of AM1I motherboard. It involves dark chokes, dark capacitors and other crucial components, which are backed by Military Class Essentials technology. The latter is called to protect the PCB from varied unfavorable happenings, i.e. high humidity, electrostatic discharge or high temperatures.

The PCB comes with two DIMM slots for the incorporation of one-channel DDR3 memory modules (up to 32 GB) with 1333/1600 MHz frequency. Storage is organized by means of two SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, whereas expansion of functional is due to two PCI …

Raijintek Introduces Three CPU Coolers for Budget-Oriented Customers

Raijintek, a newly-established hardware developer, puts on sale three CPU coolers, targeted primarily at budget-oriented customers. Along with bright codenames, — Erebos, Themis and Aidos — the triple received a bright design: a silver-like heatsink block, a white fan and a raspberry-red fan frame. Each model is able to efficiently cope with the cooling down of all systems with medium loading.

The first model, Raijintek Erebos, consists of a voluminous perforated heatsink block with thirty-four plates. The plates are pierced by six heatpipes (6 mm each) and are accompanied by a 140 mm fan (Aeolus). To say more, this cooler is appropriate for a passive cooling process, due to a large heatsink with perfect heat dissipation facilities. The model comes to the market at the price of € 34,90.

The next model, Raijintek Themis, also features a voluminous heatsink section. In combination with four U-shape copper heatpipes, this heatsink is able to provide for an effective …

MSI Announces GTX 960 Series of Graphics Cards

MSI is glad to introduce its own version of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960 GPU. This time the company offers three graphics cards, one of which keeps an etalon design (GTX 960), whereas the other two take an original design (GTX 960 OC and GTX 960 Gaming 2G). The triple differentiates not only by external features but by operational clock frequencies as well.

The heart of all three models is Nvidia GM206 GPU with 1024 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. MSI GeForce GTX 960 runs at 1127 MHz (nominal)/1178 MHz (dynamic) frequency; at the same time, MSI GeForce GTX 960 OC and MSI GeForce GTX 960 Gaming 2G run at 1178 MHz/1241 MHz & 1216 MHz/1279 MHz correspondingly. All three new-comers are equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory having 128-bit interface; it operates at 1800 MHz (nominal)/7200 MHz (efficient) frequency.

MSI GeForce GTX 960 OC employs Armor 2X cooler with black-and-white cover design. It consists of two 90-mm fans, a middle-sized heatsink, and a couple of copper …
