Platinum PSU Huntkey FX500SE Review

Nowadays more and more PSU manufacturers tend towards a better acoustic ergonomics of their products. Sure thing this is linked with the desire of customers to have high-performance but quiet systems. There is small wonder that traditional power supplies are rather noisy, due to air fans, so the manufacturers invented a sophisticated solution: hybrid cooling. It presupposes two working modes: active — with fans on and passive — with fans off. Huntkey is one of the companies that successfully implemented this invention into proprietary devices. Its FX500SE is a good example of efficiency combined with quiet operation. Plus, it provides users with appropriate connectivity facilities.

HIS Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2: Graphics Card with an Offbeat Cooler

HIS has recently replenished its Radeon R9 series of graphics cards with a new model – the Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2. Based on AMD Hawaii Pro chip, this card is a combination of an ultimate efficiency and an offbeat design. The integrated GPU runs at an etalon frequency — 947 MHz. No changes have been incorporated into the frequency mode of GDDR5 memory: the 4 GB memory with 512-bus interface runs at nominal/effective 1250/5000 MHz frequency.

The major peculiarity pertained to the model is the employment of a proprietary two-slot cooler, codenamed IceQ X2. It consists of a spacious copper base (40x47.5 mm), a large aluminum heatsink, a pair of 89 mm fans, and five nickel-plated heatpipes: 2x 8 mm and 3x 6 mm. The cooler also accommodates additional heatspreaders, which dissipate heat in memory and VRM sections. Moreover, the framework boasts a dedicated stiffening plate that reduces loading on the printed circuit board.

To continue, HIS Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2 comes with two …
