Be Quiet! Silent Loop: A Powerful Liquid Cooler for Powerful CPUs

Be Quiet! made a personal breakthrough in cooling area. The company has developed the first in its signature lineup liquid cooler targeting high-efficient CPUs. The Silent Loop supports all up-to-date as well as outdated platforms, including AMD FM1/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM2/FM2+ & Intel Socket LGA2011-3/2011/1366/115x/775. The cooler is ready to dissipate up to 400 W power; hence, it might be integrated within overclocking and gaming systems.



The model is a combination of a water block, patch cables (up to 390 mm in length), a heatsink (319x144x30 mm), and a pair of 140-mm fans (Pure Wings 2). At first sight, the layout is standard. However, the cooler features a range of interesting technical solutions. For example, it houses an isolated reverse pump which ensures low noise level & minimal level of vibrations. The reverse stream technology enables the injection of a coolant from the external counter to the internal one via a cooling plate. This is called to enhance heat …

Toshiba to Release Entry-Level A100 Solid-State Drive

Toshiba is about to release a 2.5-inch SSD, entitled A100. The entry-level model is based on TLC NAND flash memory chips (15 nm) with the cooperation of SLC cache memory. Traditionally, the drive employs SATA 6 Gb/sec interface and takes Toshiba TC58NC1010 chip as a controller.



The greenhorn is available in two versions: 120 GB and 140 GB (dimensions: 100x69.85x7 mm). The couple is an optimal choice for home & office PCs, thanks to the incorporation of power-efficient, high-performance and shock-proof technologies. The drives’ maximal data transfer speed on sequential operations makes up 550 MB/sec & 480 MB/sec (read/write). The maximal data transfer speed on random operations (4K) achieves 87.000 IOPS & 82.000 IOPS correspondingly.


Toshiba A100 solid-state drives are known to support NCQ, TRIM and S.M.A.R.T. technologies. An estimated MTBF index equals to 1.5 million hours. The 120 GB item might endure 30 TB of written information, while the 240 GB item allows for 60 TB …
