Air Cooler Thermalright Archon SB-E Review

Thermalright Inc. has managed to design and supply a whole galaxy of cooling solutions for the entire period of its existence. The prototype of the cooler codenamed Thermalright Archon SB-E was announced last spring and its original version has reached the market this autumn. This model is characterized by some outstanding efficiency and noise level showings, as well as high compatibility with diverse platforms.



General Peculiarities


This air cooler is delivered in a traditional for this manufacturer cardbox. The box contains the cooler itself and a set of key components, featuring a universal backplate, a set of screws, a screwer, fan frames, and brand thermal compound — Thermalright The ChillFactor III. Archon SB-E features 175x155x79.5 mm dimensions and weighs 940 g. It is compatible with Intel and AMD platforms and supports sockets LGA 775/1155/1156/1366/2011 (Intel) and 939/FM1/FM2/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ (AMD).

The New Fan from Antec – Rainbow 120 RGB – Will Be Available at the Price of 15 EUR

The range of Antec chassis fans has been widened by the Rainbow 120 RGB model. Its name suggests, that this product is of 120 mm typical size. LED backlighting of Rainbow 120 RGB renders up to 256 shades to produce dynamic effects or covers up to seven colours in the static mode. Moreover, the setup chosen by the user is supported after the PC switching off. The backlighting is adjusted just by pushing a little button.



The special blade configuration directs air flow to the outer side, thus increasing the static pressure level and enhancing the process of flows distribution inside the system unit. Fluid bearings extend the service life, and fan rubber pads at the places of mounting holes lower the vibration and noise level.


The top rotational speed of Rainbow 120 RGB is 1,200 rpm, and the air flow capacity equals to 1.2 m3/min. This device possesses a three-pin power supply connector and features the 12 V nominal voltage. The noise factor is not higher than 24.8 dBA.

Asetek to Finalize the Development of the 4Gen LCS

Asetek, a well-known manufacturer and supplier of water/liquid cooling solutions, announces the final stage in the development of the 4th generation of its patented liquid-cooling system. Currently, the products developed by Asetek are widely used by OEM-companies in their own systems. However, in accordance with the voiced information, the LCS of the fourth generation will be delivered as OEM-product line, so as a brand Asetek product. The prospective release date is scheduled for the end of 2012.



The 4th generation of patented liquid cooling systems features an elaborated waterblock base and totally refined pump. Such improvement might provide for a dramatic increase in performance. The implemented pump creates a higher pressure and more efficiently distributes the liquid current at the entrance to the micro-channel base structure.


At the same time, thermal resistance has been reduced at 20% which resulted in 1.2 times better waterblock heat irradiation properties. …
