Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC is Available for Preorder

Sapphire is about to launch the first modification of AMD’s graphics adapter – the Radeon RX 480. The new-comer, entitled Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC, is already available for preorder at the price tag of $322. The PCB, as well as the integrated cooling system, employs a modified design. The ‘OC’ postfix implies that the card has been overclocked to provide for a better performance.

Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC comes equipped with AMD Polaris 10 GPU (14 nm, FinFet, GCN). It features 2304 stream processors, 32 ROPs & 144 TMUs. The presumptive GPU clock frequency might achieve 1350 MHz. At the same time, memory subsystem hasn’t been modified: 8 GB of GDDR5 are supposed to run at 2.0/8.0 GHz (base/dynamic) frequency.

The 2-slot cooling system employs a few heatpipes, a large aluminum heatsink, a stiffening plate at the reverse side, and a couple of 100-mm fans. The latter are able to operate in passive mode when GPU temperature is low. Moreover, the model boasts the …

Xilence Company has presented a kilowatt power supply unit of XQ series

Taiwanese company Xilence released two PSU of unusual design — XQ Series of 750 and 850 W capacities. In contrast to usual offers on the market, these PSU are equipped with a pair of 60-mm fans. It has separate adjustment of speed and can operate in a completely passive mode at a load of up to 20-30%.

Recently, Xilence added to the above-mentioned series a power supply with nominal 1000W. New model in the pre-sale testing was certified with 80 Plus Platinum, which indicates the level of efficiency from 90% to 94% in the system of 230 V. Like its predecessors, the unit uses a modular principle of cabling, active power factor correction mechanism and complies with ATX12V v2.3 and EPS12V v2.92 standards. The list of available power cables (connectors) is the following: 4x PCI-E 6-pin, 4x PCI-E (6 + 2)-pin, 7x Molex 4-pin, FDD, 12x SATA, EPS12V (4 +4)-pin, EPS12V 8-pin and ATX (20 +4)-pin.

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 …
