HIS Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2: Graphics Card with an Offbeat Cooler

HIS has recently replenished its Radeon R9 series of graphics cards with a new model – the Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2. Based on AMD Hawaii Pro chip, this card is a combination of an ultimate efficiency and an offbeat design. The integrated GPU runs at an etalon frequency — 947 MHz. No changes have been incorporated into the frequency mode of GDDR5 memory: the 4 GB memory with 512-bus interface runs at nominal/effective 1250/5000 MHz frequency.



The major peculiarity pertained to the model is the employment of a proprietary two-slot cooler, codenamed IceQ X2. It consists of a spacious copper base (40x47.5 mm), a large aluminum heatsink, a pair of 89 mm fans, and five nickel-plated heatpipes: 2x 8 mm and 3x 6 mm. The cooler also accommodates additional heatspreaders, which dissipate heat in memory and VRM sections. Moreover, the framework boasts a dedicated stiffening plate that reduces loading on the printed circuit board.

The Just-launched QF140 PC Case Fans Have Been Presented by Cryorig

Welcome brand-new chassis fans from the Cryorig Company. The new series, called QF140, is represented by two 140 mm models – QF140 Silent and QF140 Performance.



The names are self-explanatory and suggest, that the difference between the two samples lies in the rotary speed and in the noise factor. The QF140 Silent fan rotates at the speed of 200–1,000 rpm and produces not more than 19.5 dBA of noise at the maximum 71.5 m³/hr air flow rate. The rotation velocity of QF140 Performance equals to 600–1850 rpm at the noise level of 38 dBA. Its productive capacity is 217 m³/hr.


Both Cryorig products weigh 159.3 g and have such identical dimensions: 140 х 140 х 25.4 mm. The fans feature eleven blades and for the most part are designed in black and white colours.


Each model goes for $15.

Release of Cooling System MK-26 from Prolimatech

Prolimatech made one more step to the leadership in cooling system segment by releasing a new cooler MK-26 last week. The new product is primarily intended at cooling GPUs integrated in graphics solutions developed by Nvidia and AMD. This model is differentiated by perceptibly voluminous dimensions which reach 230x146x47 mm. The nominal delivery set of MK-26 includes the most essential components, along with the brand PK-3 thermal compound.



The framework is designed with the efficiency and performance in mind. The cooler has got a nickel-based bottom part and six heat pipes. In their turn, the pipes accommodate two arrays of aluminum ribs which are manufactured under Buckle Fin technology. With the aim to enforce the performance, the user is able to locate a couple of 120 mm or 140 mm fans on the radiators. Graphics card together with this cooling system takes only two slots on the motherboard.


Moreover, according to the manufacturer's words, Prolimatech MK-26 is capable …
