Sapphire Unveils Small-Sized R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition Graphics Cards

Optimized energy efficiency offered by AMD Radeon R9 285 graphics adapters has become a key factor for Sapphire to elaborate a pair of original proprietary versions. The new-comers, codenamed R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition, are targeting mini-ITX systems with huge performance ambitions. The pair traditionally involves a standard model with etalon specifications and OC model with a factory overclocking.

Both graphics cards employ a small-sized two-slot cooler that consists of a compact heatsink, four copper heatpipes, and a single fan of 100 mm dimensional type. Connection with PC monitors and other visual solutions is realized by means of HDMI, DVI-I, and a couple of mini-DisplayPorts. Additionally, the models feature dual BIOS chips (standard and UEFI) which might be switched with the help of a dedicated key on the case.

To continue, Sapphire R9 285 2GB GDDR5 ITX Compact Edition and OC Edition are based on AMT Tonga GPU (28 nm, GCN) with 1792 stream processors, 112 …

Greeting Versa H23 and H23 Window Cases from Thermaltake

Budget-oriented series of PC cases from Thermaltake has been replenished with two new models: Versa H23 and Versa H23 Window. The mere difference between the two enclosures is the availability of a side-faceted acrylic window in ‘Window’ version. Still, both mid-towers feature 429x209x491 mm dimensions and come with a totally black coating. Their internal spacing is sufficient to include standard ATX, as well as contracted micro-ATX motherboards.

Thermaltake Versa H23 and H23 Window boast two 5.25-inch, six 2.5-inch and three 3.5-inch trays for the installation of various drives. All of them might be mounted without any special tools, due to a polished clipping system. The cases offer seven PCI slots to expand the system’s functional.

Additionally, the models support the installation of CPU coolers of up to 156 mm in height, graphics cards of up to 315 mm in length, and a standard PS/2 power supply unit. The I/O panel is located in the top-front panel. It embraces …

Deepcool to Release an Updated Lucifer K2 Efficient CPU Cooler

Deepcool has introduced a ‘companion’ to its well-known cooler entitled Lucifer V2. The all-new Lucifer K2 features 163x146.5x131 mm dimensions and weighs 1047 g. The new-comer supports AMD and Intel platforms, including LGA2011-v3, LGA2011, LGA1366, LGA115x, LGA775 (Intel) & Socket FM2, FM2+, FM1, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+ (AMD) as well as various CPUs with TDP level of not more than 130 W.

Deepcool Lucifer K2 boasts a purely-polished copper base, six copper heatpipes and an aluminum heatsink (140x110x163 mm). The latter ensures a large heat dissipation area. Despite having stately proportions, the cooler does not block off the access towards DIMM slots.

The key differentiation between V2 and K2 models lies in the choice of a fan. The previous solution featured a 140-mm item, while the newer one – a 120-mm fan, based on a fluid-dynamic bearing. The fan supports PWM technology that provides for a wide rotational range — from 600 RPM to 1800 RPM, — generating up to …
