Asus to Start Shipping Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC Graphics Card

Next week Asus is going to start shipping its newest graphics card from Radeon R9 series. Codenamed Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC, it is based on an original PCB with black-and-red design and the incorporation of an exclusive DirectCU II cooling system. Plus, the availability of ‘OC’ in the codename implies the availability of factory overclocking.



Asus Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC takes GCN Hawaii core with 2816 stream processors as the basis. It operates at an overclocked 1000 MHz frequency. The model is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (512-bit bus) that runs at an effective 5400 MHz frequency. Just for a comparison, etalon adapter from AMD runs at 947 MHz/ 5000 MHz for GPU/memory correspondingly.


DirectCU II cooler consists of a heatsink, four copper nickel-plated heatpipes (two of them feature 10 mm dimensions), and two high-performance fans: one ordinary and one CoolTech. The card receives power via 6+8-pin connectors and might require not less than 600 W PSU.

SilverStone Unveils Raven RVX01 Enthusiast-Oriented Chassis

SilverStone Technology is about to release its newest PC case that supplemented an outstanding Raven Series. Targeting advanced PC builders & enthusiasts, the Raven RVX01 features 500x215x485 mm dimensions and differs by an offbeat all-black chassis design with the employment of high-quality Japanese steel and plastic. The customers will be able to choose the modification with blind side panels and with a windowed side panel (acrylic glass). Pricing is set at $92 and $100 correspondingly.



SilverStone Raven RVX01 offers a nontrivial localization of all components. For instance, it presupposes the installation of the motherboard (mini-ITX, micro-ATX, ATX) in quadrature. Therewith, graphics cards and PSU are located in the top section of the chassis, while all the drives found their places in the bottom section. Such layout is called to optimize airflow.


The model is ready to welcome graphics cards of 348 mm in length, CPU coolers of 162 mm in height, ATX-compatible power …

The Debut of Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro 140 and 280 CPU Liquid-Cooling Systems

This year the Cooler Master company has released a series of original MasterLiquid Pro liquid-cooling systems for Intel and AMD CPUs. The models with 120 mm and 240 mm heat sinks were the first to be released. Now it’s the turn of MasterLiquid Pro 140 and 280 devices, using the liquid-cooling systems heat sinks of the suitable size.



These novelties with a “one-piece” and “two-piece” heat sinks have much in common, though they differ in heat spreader dimensions (171 × 138 × 27 mm and 311 × 138 × 27 mm), as well as in the location of the 140 mm fans pair. MasterLiquid Pro 140 has them mounted on both sides of the heat dissipator and MasterLiquid Pro 280 — on the one side only.


Coolers consist of the big water unit with the inbuilt pump, pipes made out of fluorated ethylene-propylene copolymer in braided cable, the aluminum heat sink and fans with a high static pressure rate (up to 3.15 mm H2O).


The water unit base is manufactured out of copper. Inside of …
