Gelid Announces a New Black Edition Supercooler

Gelid, a company known for its high-end cooling systems, announces the release of a new air supercooler, codenamed Black Edition. This model is characterized by a prime cooling effect that is able to manage with even an overclocked red-hot processor. Upon the whole, Gelid Black Edition can boast a larger number of heat pipes, wider area of heat dissipation, and quieter operation.



Gelid Black Edition is known to support all contemporary CPU sockets designed by Intel (LGA 2011, 1366, 1156, 1155, 775) and AMD (FM1, FM2, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+). This makes the cooler highly-compatible with versatile PC systems. The model is developed in the most spread tower framework with the two-section heatsink; this promotes for the installation of more than two fans which are able to ensure the maximal cooling activity. The base houses seven heat pipes (three of them feature 8 mm and four others — 6 mm). This implies that the model will play its best within the systems based on Intel X79 …

‘Mini-Mighty’ MSI Z97I Gaming AC Motherboard Review

Ever-increasing popularity of mini-ITX mainboards is accounted for the augmentation of small-sized PC systems, work- and multimedia stations, as well as gaming platforms. The latter lay down specific demands towards hardware base, requiring the combination of high performance, durability and price-efficiency. MSI is ready to satisfy those demands, by offering ‘mini, but mighty’ Z97I Gaming AC system board. Being a part of Intel Z97 chipset family, this tiny tot owns all ‘Gaming’ series facilities, despite compact dimensions. Let’s check them out.



Specs Overview


MSI Z97I Gaming AC is based on Intel Z97 chipset targeting Haswell-based CPUs for Socket LGA1150 platform (Celeron, Pentium, Core i3/i5/i7 series). The implemented PCB accommodates a pair of DIMM slots for DDR3 SDRAM modules (16 GB volume) with the clock frequencies from 1333 MHz to 3300 MHz. Expansion facilities are introduced by a single PCI-e 3.0 x16 slot with no backup from PCI slots. The board comes …

Scythe Mugen 5 Is a Powerful CPU Cooler Up to 160 mm High

A new sample – Scythe Mugen 5 (SCMG-5000) – has come into line with the famous Scythe Mugen series. Its asymmetric Tower construction enhances compatibility with long RAM modules. The dimensions of the unit are 154.5 х 130 х 110 mm, and the weight equals to 890 g, which widens the range of chassis able to hold it.



Scythe Mugen 5 possesses a nickel-plated copper base frame, six nickel-plated copper heat pipes, an aluminum heatsink and a 120 mm Scythe Kaze Flex 120 PWM axial flow fan. It is constructed with refined hydrodynamic bearings (Sealed Precision FDB) with the specified life span of 120,000 hours. The rotary speed of 300–1,200 rpm is able to create an airflow in the volume of 16.6–51.17 CFM (28.2–86.93 m3/hr). The static pressure is estimated to be 0.076–1.05 mm H2O, and the noise level lies in the range of 4–24.9 dBA. One can optionally install another analogous fan on the other side.
