Low-Profile Cooler Noctua NH-L12 Review

Noctua, an Austrian developer and supplier of high-end cooling systems, is well-known for the design of versatile products which are able to satisfy the needs of any consumer, starting from average home users and finishing with devotees of overclocking. The recent Noctua creation is the low-profile CPU cooler destined to be employed in HTPC systems and other compact chassis. This cooler is characterized by the horizontal localization of radiator that allows its installation into a quite narrow casing. At the same time, the model is efficient enough to manage high-performance advanced processors.



Design and Framework


Noctua NH-L12 is notable for the classic design and framework. It features 150x128x93 mm dimensions (with two fans) which barely speak of low-profile form factor. NH-L12 is compatible with different CPU sockets, including Socket AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, LGA 2011/1366/1156/1156/775. This cooler consists of horizontal radiator, four copper heat pipes which pierce …

Motherboard Intel DZ87KLT-75K Review

Intel has been a leading designer of multi-field CPUs and chipsets for many years on end. Nowadays it continues its operation, defining the mode of a global IT industry development. Being a guru in one field, the company has never been thought a major player in the motherboard segment for which its products are destined. The only people/structures that took benefit of its boards were system integrators; nonetheless, today Intel is trying to catch up with the segment of home users, now and then releasing top-tier products. DZ87KLT-75K is exactly such model. Let’s see what it has to offer.



Specifications


Motherboard Intel DZ87KLT-75K features the following peculiarities:

— connectivity: one PCI Bus Master slot, three PCIe x1 slots, three PCIe x16 slots, a pair of FireWire ports IEEE1394 (main and additional), one Thunderbolt port, one external Wi-fi/Bluetooth v2.1 module, a …

Meeting New Gaming Memory Kits AMD Radeon RG2133



A couple of days ago AMD introduced a new series of DDR3 memory kits within the boundaries of AMD Unified Gaming Strategy development. Codenamed AMD Radeon RG2133, the new-comers are available in two- and four-channel kits, the overall capacity of which equals to 16 GB and 32 GB correspondingly. The most striking feature is that they can be employed as on AMD, so on Intel platforms, supporting AMD AMP and Intel XMP technologies for improved settings optimization.


The other peculiarity is that these memory kits run at 2133 MHz frequency. On such conditions there is always a chance to dramatically increase the system performance up to 22% (with APU AMD A10 on board). Herewith, voltage index equals to 1.65 V, while latency index looks the following way: 10-11-11-30. Memory chips are cooled down by the forces of a high-quality aluminum heatspreader. Its design is called to ensure a stable operation in response to the increased frequencies.
