ECS to Implement AMD Memory Profile Support into Its Motherboards

AMD has won a reputation not only for designing and supplying high-end processors but also for introducing its brand memory expansion, codenamed AMD Memory Profile. This development is called to store and share memory settings profiles and to facilitate the search for the most rational settings. Thus, ECS company is going to implement AMP support for DDR3 memory into its future and current lineup of motherboards. According to the available data, AMP technology will be applied to the upcoming motherboards with AMD processors, and to the current products by means of UEFI firmware update. This is the first 'revival' of the technology since its reconsideration and upgrade.

The integrated technology is destined to setup new frequency, voltage and timings showings which will facilitate in keeping DDR3 memory modules stable. As a rule, random-access memory with high frequencies of more than 2GHz require manual system overclocking. AMP will prevent the emergence of errors while setting …

Liquid-Cooling System Zalman LQ315 Review

A few months after the last release of water-cooling systems, Zalman introduces a new series of products with a title attribute LQ3xx. The series consists of three models, LQ320, LQ315 and LQ310, which differentiate themselves primarily by dimensions. The senior cooler (LQ320) features 32 mm water block and 52 mm heatsink, the medium LQ315 cooler features 38 mm heatsink and analogous in dimensions water block; the junior cooler (LQ310) is the tiniest one and features 28 mm heatsink and water block. Zalman LQ315 greatly resembles its predecessor, CNPS20LQ, in design, however, is ready to offer some improved options, if compared with the previous cooler generations.

Design and Framework

Like any other water-cooling system, Zalman LQ315 consists of a water block combined with a pump and joined with a heatsink by means of flexible tubes. The water block is notable by the availability of 'Z' logo on its surface that is lighted blue during operation. Its round base, made of …

Transcend produces memory kits aXeRam DDR3-2400 and DDR3-2133 with 8 GB of memory

The widely represented in the market a series of RAM sets Transcend aXeRam is now added with dual channel kit DDR3 of 8 GB with an effective frequency of 2133 and 2400 MHz. Modules are routinely equipped with aluminum radiators with high «scallops» and support overclocking profiles Intel XMP 1.3, actual for the processors Intel Ivy Bridge.

The package Transcend aXeRam DDR3-2133 2x 4 GB consists of two brackets with a combination of delay of memory 10-11-10-27 and moderate voltage 1.6 V. Overclocking enthusiasts will certainly prefer against it more productive Transcend aXeRam DDR3-2400 for the same amount. Timings have been raised in a given set up to 11-12-11-29, and default voltage — up to 1.65 V.

To increase the stability of the new items, they are made on an 8-layer PCB. Overclocking spirit of the tandem Transcend aXeRam DDR3-2133/2400 emphasizes the possibility of fine tuning by the utility aXeMod. In addition, aXeMod monitors the temperature of the memory.
