Preliminary Acquaintance with VGA-Cooler MK-26 V2 from Prolimatech

Prolimatech Inc., an established manufacturer of high-end air-cooling systems, is about to release its new VGA-cooler, codenamed MK-26 V2. The upcoming product will be compatible with graphics cards from AMD manufacturer (up to Radeon HD 7000 Series) and Nvidia (up to GeForce GTX 600 Series). According to the preliminary data, the new cooler models will be capable to manage up to 320W of extra heat to provide for the most optimal GPU cooling down.

The major distinction of MK-26 V2 cooler is its impressive dimensions which equal to 230x146x47 mm. Thus, the cooler will take the spacing of five expansion slots, leaving no room for SLI/Crossfire. The cooler has got a copper base which accommodates six copper heatpipes, 6mm in gauge each pipe. Those pipes pierce two heterogeneous blocks consisting of thin aluminum fins which are designed in correspondence with Buckle Fin technology. The fins are distinguished by the unusual form that is called to promote for better heat removal …

Foxconn Introduces Two Motherboards on Intel NM70 Chipset

Foxconn is proud to introduce a pair of new mini-ITX motherboards, developed on Intel NM70 chipset. Entitled D70S-P and D70S-PD, this couple is intended for the incorporation into small-sized, power-saving and low-noise PCs, workstations, network and multimedia stations.

Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H: plus two ports Thunderbolt, plus 40 euros

Gigabyte has released the first motherboard form factor microATX, equipped with two ports Thunderbolt — GA-Z77MX-D3H TH. Taking into account the availability of the precursor (Z77MX-D3H), it’s interesting to compare the design and price of these models. First, about the cost of the product.

What causes the difference in more than 40 euros? In general, the presence of two ports Intel Thunderbolt 10 Gb / s, which are implemented by the controller Intel DSL3510L. A high-speed connection can simultaneously serve several drives and a monitor. Minor changes were made to the design of the CPU power supply subsystem, which, nevertheless, remained a 6-channel. One of the long PCI Express slots was replaced by the second PCI-E 2.0 x1.
