Thermaltake Enters the Market with NiC L31 and L32 CPU Coolers

Thermaltake Technology has just started shipping a pair of budgetary CPU coolers from NiC series. Entitled NiC L31 and NiC L32, these two models are compatible with all updated Intel and AMD platform motherboards. In keeping with the manufacturer, the new-comers will not obstruct the mounting of memory modules, due to their well-considered framework. Hence, they consist of small-sized heatsinks, three U-shape heatpipes (8 mm), and a base that is in direct contact with the CPU.

The first model, NiC L31 (codename: CL-P001-AL12RE-A), features 140x128x40 mm dimensions and weighs 530 g. The integrated 120 mm fan might operate in various speed modes – from 500 RPM to 1800 RPM – thanks to the support for PWM technology. It produces up to 70.99 CFM and dissipates up to 160 W power.

At the same time, at the minimal speed mode it generates only 18 dB noise, however at the ultimate rotations this index rises to 34.8 dB. According to the results of multiple tests, this fan is …

The First Glance at MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK & Z97 Gaming 9 ACK Mainboards

MSI could not resist the temptation to officially introduce a pair of new gaming mainboards: the X99S Gaming 9 ACK and the Z97 Gaming 9 ACK. The key distinction of new-comers from analogue models without ‘ACK’ attribute lies in the implementation of dedicated gaming network controllers: Qualcomm Atheros Killer 1525 and Killer E2205. The first one is supposed to support 802.11 ac standard that guarantees 867 Mb/sec throughput bandwidth; it also ensures less data deference. This provides for a faster network traffic processing and, as a result, — for a huge advantage in online gaming.

The E-ATX MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK motherboard is based on Intel X99 chipset, estimated for Intel Core i7-5000 CPUs with Socket LGA2011-v3. The model features 8x DIMM slots for DDR4-333 MHz memory (4-channel operational mode) of up to 128 GB capacity. Storage subsystem offers eight SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities are ensured by means of five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. The list of …
