Meeting Ballistix Elite DDR4 Memory from Micron Technology

As part of Crucial brand, Micron Technology comes out with a new generation of RAM – the Ballistix Elite DDR4. It is developed in a pure black PCB with a powerful heatspreader and an integrated thermal sensor. Initially, the company releases planks of 4 GB and 8 GB, although in retail sale the products will be available in 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB kits. Pricing is unknown so far.



Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory operates at 2666 MHz frequency and boasts 21 Gb/sec throughput index. Its power-efficient facilities are 40% better than those inherent in DDR3 models with analogous clock frequency. This makes gaming process a delight due to intense responsiveness, optimized latencies, and increased frame rates.


The modules support XMP 2.0 profiles as well as Ballistix Memory Overview Display utilities; the latter track the performance of each module, analyzing temperature, voltage and frequency showings in real time. Furthermore, Micron Technology makes its DDR4 compatible …

Corsair Outs H105 CPU Liquid Cooler from Hydro Series

Corsair is glad to announce an official release of a new CPU liquid cooler from Hydro series. Entitled H105, the greenhorn is remarkable by easy mounting without any tools and by absence of need in maintenance. Both models are compatible with the majority of latter-day platforms, embracing AMD Socket AM2, AM3, FM1, and FM2, as well as Intel LGA 2011, 1150, 1155, 1156, and 1366.



Corsair Hydro Series H105 consists of a massive heatsink (272.5x120x38 mm dimensions), a small-sized waterblock with a copper plate and micro-channels, and a pair of low-noise fans. The augmentation of heatsink thickness from 27 to 38 mm resulted in the widening of heat dissipation area. The waterblock is furnished with a bright backlight.


Two 120 mm SP120L fans feature 120x120x25 mm dimensions. Their rotational speed is adjusted by means of PWM technology, relying on CPU temperature. Hence, they operate in a quite extensive rotational range: 800-2700 RPM. Their maximal airflow achieves the margin …
