Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.

Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.

The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.

AMD Officially Launches FreeSync Technology

The much-talked about graphical technology from AMD – FreeSync – is already out. Its privileges over rival solutions might be seen from different angles. To begin with, it dramatically optimizes the gameplay by improving image smoothness, reducing lag time, and eliminating splitting. FreeSync enables the synchronization of screen refresh time with GPU refresh time in real time; hence, images are updated only when the graphical adapter shapes the frame.

To continue, AMD FreeSync, is an open standard which does not require calculations, since it is integrated within an updated DisplayPort 1.2a interface. As distinct from Nvidia’s G-Sync, there is no need to equip the monitor with a dedicated module. Moreover, this technology supports the widest refresh range: 9-240 Hz; therefore, monitors manufacturers receive a tool for a standalone definition of operational limits for a particular model.

Currently, FreeSync is implemented within six graphics adapters and within …
