Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.



Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.


As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.


It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …

SilverStone introduced a modular power supply Strider ST45SF-G form factor SFX

Power Supplies form factor SFX are usually positioned as solutions for office and HTPC systems, that is why its design is often monotonous. In this regard, a new block of SilverStone Strider ST45SF-G stands out from the competition with detachable cables in a nylon sheath and colored in black casing.



Despite its compact dimensions (125x100x63, 5 mm), power supply produces up to 450 watts of constant power at an efficiency of 88% to 92% in the networks of 230 V. It is noteworthy that the kit includes an adapter to install Strider ST45SF-G in the chassis type Mid-Tower (ATX).


Cooling of PSU is provided by 80-mm fan with support for automatic speed control. In addition, the unit has active PFC, single cable PCI-E Power on (6 +2) and two contacts at the 6-pin. Allowed not more than three per cent of deviation from the standard voltage of +12 V, +5 V and +3.3 V.


A detailed description of the new models is available on the manufacturer's website. SilverStone Strider ST45SF-G …

Gigabyte Showcases a Couple of Gaming Mainboards with Onboard Liquid Coolers

Gigabyte teamed up with EK Water Blocks in order to develop a pair of off-beat motherboards. The GA-X99-Ultra-Gaming-EK and the GA-Z170X-Gaming 7-EK are differentiated from their predecessors by the integration of EK-Supremacy EVO X99 & EK-FB GA-Z170X waterblocks. The latter is sure to cool down not only the CPU and its environment but also key components of the power subsystem.



Gigabyte GA-X99-Ultra Gaming-EK is developed on Intel X99 chipset, targeting Intel Core i7 CPUs for Socket LGA2011-3 platform. The PCB offers 8 DIMM slots for DDR4-3600 MHz memory (up to 128 GB), four PCIe 3.0 x16 expansion slots and a single PCIe 2.0 x1 slot. The ATX motherboard features 305x244 mm dimensions.


Storage subsystem of the model is represented by one M.2 Socket 3 slot, one U.2 slot, one SATA Express port as well as eight SATA III (6 Gb/sec) ports. One more M.2 Socket 1 is occupied by Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter. 7-1 channel audio subsystem is based on Realtek ALC1150 controller, whereas …
