EKWB Launches a New Water Block for GV-N680SO-2GD

Early August of 2012 was marked for Gigabyte by the release of its one more graphics card, codenamed GeForce GTX 680 SOC (GV-N680SO-2GD). This card can boast the availability of high factory frequencies and quite mighty cooling system. The nominal frequencies have been heightened to 1137MHz, 1202MHz, and 6200MHz for memory. Such outstanding characteristics required the integration of a high-quality and high-performance cooling system which consisted of five(!) fans. This made the card rather voluminous, cumbersome and noisy. That was when EKWB decided to design a dedicated water block to be employed with this remarkable graphics adapter.



Water block EK-FC 680 GTX SOC is housed on a copper base, good-quality acetal cover, and rubber shims as a compressor. The model is delivered with pre-installed fixing stands to facilitate the installation. It should be noted that this water block entirely covers the frontal part of the graphics card, along with the adjacent RAM modules and …

Graphics Card Palit GTX 660 Ti JetStream Review

All graphics solutions represented in the market can be divided into three main groups: high-end cards that are destined for inveterate gamers and professionals, mainstream products for ordinary needs of average customers, and budgetary items for basic PC needs. Each of the segment is constantly replenishing with new products to satisfy the rising demands of consumers. Graphics solutions from Nvidia are widely represented in all three groups and enjoy popularity due to their advanced facilities. The company's latest adapter GTX 660 Ti doesn't have its own reference model, so each graphics card manufacturer is able to adjust it exactly to the individual model. Hence, Palit released its own card on the basis of Nvidia GTX 660 Ti adapter and codenamed it JetStream.



Integration


Palit GTX 660 Ti JetStream design is much alike the design implemented in Palit GTX 670 model. The new graphics card is based on a rather short circuit board that makes the cooling system unusually …

Xigmatek Manifests Specifications of Apache III

Xigmatek, a Taiwanese manufacturer of PC cooling solutions, has just promulgated the specifications of its new cooler series entitled Apache III. The series consists of two models only, which differentiate themselves by the casing's material and color. Model CD901 is housed in a silver aluminum casing, while model CD903 – in a black anodized aluminum casing. Both models have been developed specifically for CPU cooling purposes; they are able to support various platforms offered by Intel and AMD: LGA 775, 1155, 1156 (Intel), Socket AM2 and later (AMD).



Both models in Apache III series are equipped with a voluminous aluminum heatsink and 92 mm fan with half-transparent orange ribs. The fan is based on Long Life bearing and features PWM facility that allows for the adjustment of fan rotational speed. The speed span variates between 1200-2500 rpm, depending on the CPU temperature and loading. The noise level does not outreach the measures of twenty dB.
