Noctua Expands ‘A’ Fan Series

The line of Noctua’s A fan series has been enriched with three new models: NF-A9 92 mm, NF-A8 80 mm and NF-A4x10 5 V 40 mm. The triple is based on traditional SSO-2 bearings which provide for an optimal balance of lifespan (up to 150.000 hours) and noise level. In order to enhance the performance and reduce noise during operation Noctua equipped the fans with Advanced Acoustic Optimization frame, anti-vibration pads, and such technologies as Stepped Inlet Design, Inner Surface Microstructures and Flow Acceleration Channels.



Noctua NF-A9 model is an heir of a renowned NF-B9 version. It is available in two variations: NF-A9 PWM and NF-A9 FLX. The first one allows for dynamic alteration of operational speeds from 400 RPM to 2000 RPM; the other one offers three fixed speed indices (1050/1250/1600 RPM).


Noctua NF-A8 is a successor of NF-R8 model. It is available in three variations: NF-A8 PWM, NF-A8 FLX and NF-A8 ULN. The first fan is able to rotate at 450-2200 RPM speed …

Review of the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Video Card

Let’s have a quick glare at one of the latest novelties in the market of graphics solutions – another representative of ASUS, to be exact, ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.


Equipment and Design

The card comes in a small box. The package has got extra case pads, VELCRO ties for wires, as well as the code for World of Warships 15 days’ premium mode. A good set for a this class representative.


ASUS ROG Strix GeForce resembles older video cards in this series: the same solid cooling with a large heat sink and a pair of fans, strict design. Given the low TDP, everything looks quite serious. The total length of the video card is 24 cm. The cooler takes up two slots.


The reverse side is protected by a metal plate. In the corner there is an additional power slot having six pins. The regular version of GeForce GTX 1050 Ti needs no extra power. The side panel of the cooler has a small illuminated logo.

A New Swiftech’s Offer – Komodo NV-ECO GTX TITAN X Water Block

The Swiftech company, which produces liquid cooling system components, announced the full cover water block for the NVIDIA TITAN X video card market release. This new product was called Komodo NV-ECO GTX TITAN X, though, the “GTX” part is misplaced, as far as the actual card (unlike the old GM200 core TITAN X) on the GP102 chip doesn’t contain in its name the prefix GeForce GTX.



This cooler is produced out of C110 class chromed copper and acryl. The water unit dimensions are: 268(L) × 122(W) × 19(H) mm, weight — 1.247 kg.

There is a little protrusion in a contact plate according to the NVIDIA GP102 core shape, 0,5 mm thick thermal pads for heat rejection from power system transistors and GDDR5X memory chips. Note: Swiftech professionals have already inserted material lines, so users don’t have to do it themselves.


This cooler’s layout is rather simple, though the microplates array presence in the GPU area should be admitted.
