The First Take on Versa N23 Chassis from Thermaltake

Thermaltake PC cases have never been a frustration. The Versa N23 is not an exception. It is a combination of functionality balanced with modern styling and a bit of company’s passion. The middle-tower chassis draws attention by the front panel with light-blue insertions against black panel. The other attraction is the right-side panel with an integrated acrylic window.

Thermaltake Versa N23 is intended to accommodate mini-ITX, micro-ATX and ATX motherboards with the maximum of 7 expansion slots. The availability of ODD bays enables the installation of two 5.25-inch drives. The layout also welcomes five 3.5-/2.5-inch drives which might be mounted without any tools.

Internal space is enough for 160-mm high CPU coolers, PS/2 ATX power supply units and 250-mm long graphics cards. If retrieving unnecessary drive bays from the bottom section, there is a chance to install 360-mm long videocards.

To continue, air cooling configuration offers 5 seats for 120 mm fans (2x …

Athlon II X2 221 and 198 Sempron X2 (FM1) appeared in the systems HP

It is well known that part of hybrid processors AMD for platform Socket FM1 have a non-working graphics power, so for their release the market brands Athlon and Sempron are used. Last fall, it was reported about the upcoming appearance in the sale of dual-core chip Athlon II X2 221 and 198 Sempron X2, but information about its actual release appeared only now. This hitch is not surprising, given the fact that these processors are still used only on computers in the collection of HP brand for the Chinese market.

Sempron X2 198 (2.5GHz) was seen in the budget desktop HP Pavilion p6-1152cx, p6-1159cx, p6-1230cx and p6-1231cx. This CPU includes two core architectures AMD K10.5, 2x512 KB cache of second level and dual-channel DDR3-1600. The TDP level is 65W.

Athlon II X2 221 clock frequency is 2.8 GHz. Other characteristics of processor are the same as in the lower Sempron X2 198. Both models support 64-bit code, virtualization, AMD-V and instructions even SSE4a. Athlon II X2 …

Raijintek Intros High-Efficiency CPU Cooler Entitled Nemesis

Raijintek, a young but future-proof company, has recently showcased another addition to its CPU cooling solutions – the Nemesis. This is a tower-like model targeting initially overclockers and PC enthusiasts. It features 140x130x166.5 mm dimensions and weighs 1050 g. The fans of extreme cooling can enjoy all privileges of Nemesis right now, since it’s already available for pre-order in the European market for the retail price of 60 EUR.

Raijintek Nemesis consists of a copper base, five nickel-plated U-shape heatpipes, and a pair of asymmetric aluminum heatspreaders, accompanied by two fans of 140x150x25 mm standard. The fans are manipulated by powers of PWM technology, so their speed might vary from 600 RPM to 1400 RPM.

Their unified efficiency achieves 119 CFM of produced airflow; that is quite enough to cool down rather hot CPUs. Moreover, the framework allows to utilize the cooler as in active, so in passive mode when the loading is low.
