Thermalright Launches New Low-Profile CPU Cooler AXP-200

Thermalright, a Taiwanese developer of advanced cooling solutions, enters into the market with a new low-profile CPU cooler – the successor of the last year’s model AXP-100. Codenamed AXP-200, the product features 150x140x60 mm dimensions and is intended to be incorporated into HTPC systems, as well as in compact PC chassis with the support of mini-ITX motherboards. This cooler is compatible with the majority of up-dated platforms, including Intel LGA 1150/1155/2011/1156/1366/775 and AMD Socket AM3/AM3+/AM2/AM2+/FM2/FM1.



The first thing that should be noted about AXP-200 is that it’s a more powerful version of the predecessor, ready to dissipate heat even without the fan from all processors with TDP level of up to 35 W. The other peculiar thing is that the model comes at an attractive price of approximately €50. And finally, framework is one more feature that differentiates AXP-200 from rival products.


Thereby, the cooler from Thermalright has got C-shape framework …

Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.



Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.


The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.

ASRock Teases Small-Sized X99M Killer Motherboard

Fans of small-sized PC systems might take delight in all the possibilities offered by Intel X99 chipset that is targeting innovative Intel Core i7 (Haswell-E generation) processors. Originally, the couple has been predestined for Socket LGA2011-3 platform full-fledged ATX motherboards. Nonetheless, ASRock is the one to equal all users by launching micro-ATX X99M Killer motherboard. In keeping with the manufacturer, the board’s functional does not yield to its senior companions.



ASRock X99M Killer accommodates four DIMM-slots for DDR4 memory modules, three PCI-e 3.0 x16 slots, ten SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, a single Ultra M.2 port that employs four lines of PCI 3.0 bus. The major peculiarity ascribed to this model is the availability of two network controllers: Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200 and Intel’s gigabit Ethernet proprietary version.
