Noctua NH-D9L Review

So let’s review an alternative cooling system Noctua NH-D9L which is in many ways similar to the previously released Noctua NH-U9S. It is at least attractive because it is a miniature copy of Noctua NH-D15. But the question is: why was it needed to release two models with similar parameters and effectiveness in the 92mm fan cooler segment, which is not the most popular one.


Equipment

Packaging is on the highest level traditional for Noctua. All the necessary information is presented on the box sides. The following components are included in addition to a radiator and a fan:

• reinforcement plate for Intel LGA115h sockets; • mounting studs for Intel LGA2011 and LGA 2011-3 sockets; • mounting feet and plastic stands for the Intel sockets; • mounting feet, plastic stands and screws for the AMD sockets; • knurled nuts to secure the feet on the Intel sockets; • additional brackets for mounting the second fan; • silicone gaskets for fans; • crosshead …

LEPA to Release MX-F1 and MaxGold 1000 PSUs

LEPA is ready to release a new series of entry-level power supply units entitled MX-F1. The series counts three models of 400 W, 500 W and 600 W capacity: N400-SA-EU, N500-SA-EU and N600-SA. In addition, the company has expanded its MaxGold line with a flagship 1000-watt model. It corresponds to Intel ATX12V 2.4 standard and employs an optimized hardware design.



To begin with, MX-F1 PSUs offer 87% of ultimate efficiency. Operating at 20%/50%/100% loading, they are able to achieve 82%/85%/82% efficiency correspondingly. Nonetheless, the models cannot receive 80Plus Bronze certificate, since they feature limited voltage input range. All the models within the series employ a single +12V rail and boast a non-modular design.


This promotes for the connection of middle-efficiency components. They support Active PFC and a wide spectrum of protective functions (over-voltage, over-current, over-power, short-circuit). Cooling of internal components is ensured by a single 120 mm fan. …

One-Slot XFX RX 460 2 GB Core Edition OC and XFX RX 460 4 GB Core Edition OC Graphics Cards

Last week the HIS company was the first to introduce a one-slot AMD Radeon RX460 series graphics card, motivating other manufacturers to design parallel solutions. Thus, XFX announced the release of a pair of such video accelerators – XFX RX 460 2 GB Core Edition OC and XFX RX 460 4 GB Core Edition OC – which differ only in the VRAM capacity (2 and 4 GB respectively).



Both novelties are based on the AMD Polaris 11 graphics processor and support 896 streaming processors, 56 TMU as well as 16 ROP. The base GPU clock matches the benchmark of 1,090 MHz, and the dynamic frequency has increased from 1,200 to 1,220 MHz. The effective video RAM rate equals 7,000 MHz.


A compact cooler is designed to chill down internal components. Its construction contains a moderate-size heat sink and an axial flow fan. The front-end interface features the following ports: DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort.


The price of XFX RX 460 2 GB Core Edition OC and XFX RX 460 4 GB Core Edition OC models has …
