The First Glance at MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK & Z97 Gaming 9 ACK Mainboards

MSI could not resist the temptation to officially introduce a pair of new gaming mainboards: the X99S Gaming 9 ACK and the Z97 Gaming 9 ACK. The key distinction of new-comers from analogue models without ‘ACK’ attribute lies in the implementation of dedicated gaming network controllers: Qualcomm Atheros Killer 1525 and Killer E2205. The first one is supposed to support 802.11 ac standard that guarantees 867 Mb/sec throughput bandwidth; it also ensures less data deference. This provides for a faster network traffic processing and, as a result, — for a huge advantage in online gaming.



The E-ATX MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK motherboard is based on Intel X99 chipset, estimated for Intel Core i7-5000 CPUs with Socket LGA2011-v3. The model features 8x DIMM slots for DDR4-333 MHz memory (4-channel operational mode) of up to 128 GB capacity. Storage subsystem offers eight SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities are ensured by means of five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. The list of …

LEPA NEOllusion CPU Cooler with an extraordinary LED backlighting

For the first time the LEPA NEOllusion CPU Cooler was demonstrated during the Computex 2016 exhibition. And the WOW moment is in its unique backlighting: LEDs are located not on the fan, but on the sides of the construction. Besides, their colour and work mode can be modified with the help of the control unit, which can be attached to the metal framework by magnetically charged legs.



The LEPA NEOllusion cooling system features the base, four 6 mm copper heat pipes with a direct contact to the CPU heat dissipation lid, the aluminum radiator and the 120 mm fan (its rotative speed range is 600–1800 rpm or 400–1000 rpm with a set adapter). With the special blades shape and excellent aerodynamic qualities it can pump the air flow of up to 128.12 m3/hr (up to 78.31 m3/hr with an adapter) at the static pressure of 2.41 mm H2O (0.9 mm H2O) and the noise grade of 33 dBA (19 dBA).


LEPA NEOllusion dimensions are 161.7 х 126 х 40 mm, and its weight is 645 g. It is compatible with …
