Midi-Tower Chassis CoolerMaster HAF XM Review

Chassis of full-tower form factor have always been considered an appropriate base for the integration of super computers. Such chassis usually have enough spacing for the installation of solid cooling systems, graphics cards, as well as several hard drives. However, full-tower means voluminous, and not everyone is ready to 'add' this chassis to the surrounding design. Thus, there appeared a perfect substitute for full-tower devices: midi-tower chassis. Despite the existing outlooks concerning midi-tower capacity, the market is replenishing with products that are called to comply with contemporary design and performance requirements. CoolerMaster HAF XM belongs to the range of midi-tower chassis which show unmatched efficiency and are ergonomic in design simultaneously.

A New Swiftech’s Offer – Komodo NV-ECO GTX TITAN X Water Block

The Swiftech company, which produces liquid cooling system components, announced the full cover water block for the NVIDIA TITAN X video card market release. This new product was called Komodo NV-ECO GTX TITAN X, though, the “GTX” part is misplaced, as far as the actual card (unlike the old GM200 core TITAN X) on the GP102 chip doesn’t contain in its name the prefix GeForce GTX.



This cooler is produced out of C110 class chromed copper and acryl. The water unit dimensions are: 268(L) × 122(W) × 19(H) mm, weight — 1.247 kg.

There is a little protrusion in a contact plate according to the NVIDIA GP102 core shape, 0,5 mm thick thermal pads for heat rejection from power system transistors and GDDR5X memory chips. Note: Swiftech professionals have already inserted material lines, so users don’t have to do it themselves.


This cooler’s layout is rather simple, though the microplates array presence in the GPU area should be admitted.


The construction is …

Lian Li PC-V650 - aluminum chassis for a PC with a side mounted power supply

The company Lian Li announced the launch of a new computer case — PC-V650. New made is entirely made of aluminum and is designed to fit motherboard ATX and Micro-ATX, but because of non-standard side location of the power supply, it is lower than most peers.



Power supply (maximum length is limited to 230 mm) is mounted in the lower right side of the case — exactly opposite of expansion cards. In terms of composition and temperature regime the model is controversial, but it allows reducing the height. On the other hand, the case has turned out quite wide. In general, new dimensions can be expressed by the formula 427 x 251 x 360 mm, provided with seven slots for expansion cards.

Lian Li PC-V650 allows setting a standard size 5.25 ODD and eleven drives: seven 3.5-inch and four 2.5 inch. Bottom basket for hard drive is made removable: if to take it out, there is the possibility to use graphic card up to 370 mm. Regarding the maximum height of CPU cooler, it is 120 mm.
