Gigabyte Puts on Sale Motherboard GA-H61M-DS2 Model

Gigabyte has put on sale across a Japanese market its entry-level motherboard entitled GA-H61M-DS2 Rev.3. The board is developed in a micro-ATX form-factor and takes Intel H61 Express chipset as the basis. It is predestined for Socket LGA 1155 and all compatible with it CPU lines: Intel Celeron, Intel Pentium, Intel Core i3, i5, and i7. One of the most distinguishing features ascribed to this model is the employment of Ultra Durable 4 Classic components that protect all internal elements from such unfavorable impacts as humidity, voltage instability, high temperatures, and electrostatic discharge.

The other promising news is that Gigabyte offers two variations of GA-H61M-DS2 model with DVI/HDMI ports on the rear panel (GA-H61M-DS2 DVI and GA-H61M-DS2 HDMI correspondingly). The basic model does not have either of such interfaces but is still rich in various ports: a couple of PS/2, three standard audio slots, four USB 2.0 ports, one RJ-45, and a single D-Sub port.

A Triplet of Waterblocks for Titan Z Graphics Solutions from EK Water Blocks

EK Water Blocks, a well-known Slovenian manufacturer of enthusiast-level liquid coolers for GPUs, has just introduced a triplet of waterblocks for the newly arrived Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z adapters. The EK-FC Titan Z – Nickel, EK-FC Titan Z – Nickel (Original CSQ) and EK-FC Titan Z – Acetal + Nickel models are sure to provide the maximal cooling at the highest frequencies both for dual- GPUs and memory chips. All the blocks come with a transparent acrylic cover and a lid from POM ACETAL plastic.

EK-FC Titan Z waterblocks are attributed to full-cover solutions. This implies that they efficiently remove heat not only from graphics cores, but also from GDDR5 memory chips, as well as from voltage regulators of VRM subsystem. Areas in direct contact with the GPUs are equipped with micro-channels of 0.7 mm width. The blocks maintain resistance to the coolant stream; hence, they might be employed along with low-power pumps.

The waterblocks features copper nickel-plated …
