Gigabyte to Release GA-Z170X-SOC Force Mainboard for Overclockers

Gigabyte has expanded its line of overclocking solutions by a new motherboard, codenamed GA-Z170X-SOC Force. The greenhorn is based on Intel Z170 chipset, supporting Skylake-S CPUs for LGA 1151 socket (14-nm technological process). The PCB is distinguished by the inclusion of fiery-orange components and a sophisticated allocation of hardware.

Gigabyte GA-Z170X-SOC Force features 22-phase VRM system and three power connectors: ATX12V, EPS12V & OC PEG. The PCB incorporates such high-quality component as DrMOS PowIRstage from International Rectifier. All power elements might be paired with hybrid cooling; for this purpose, the customer has to acquire G1/4 fittings.

The motherboard accommodates 4 slots for DDR4-3300 MHz RAM with the maximal capacity of 64 GB. Storage subsystem might be organized thanks to 9 SATA III ports, 3 SATA Express ports (10 Gb/sec bandwidth index), 3 M.2 Socket 3 ports (32 Gb/sec bandwidth index), and a pair of USB 3.1 Type-A/Type-C ports.

Raijintek Intros High-Efficiency CPU Cooler Entitled Nemesis

Raijintek, a young but future-proof company, has recently showcased another addition to its CPU cooling solutions – the Nemesis. This is a tower-like model targeting initially overclockers and PC enthusiasts. It features 140x130x166.5 mm dimensions and weighs 1050 g. The fans of extreme cooling can enjoy all privileges of Nemesis right now, since it’s already available for pre-order in the European market for the retail price of 60 EUR.

Raijintek Nemesis consists of a copper base, five nickel-plated U-shape heatpipes, and a pair of asymmetric aluminum heatspreaders, accompanied by two fans of 140x150x25 mm standard. The fans are manipulated by powers of PWM technology, so their speed might vary from 600 RPM to 1400 RPM.

Their unified efficiency achieves 119 CFM of produced airflow; that is quite enough to cool down rather hot CPUs. Moreover, the framework allows to utilize the cooler as in active, so in passive mode when the loading is low.
