Cooler Master N400/N600: More Options. More Expandability.

Chino, California – July 9th, 2013 – Cooler Master, a designer, manufacturer, and innovator of leading PC components, today announced two new additions to the N series, a new series of compact and fully featured cases. The N series improves upon traditional mainstream chassis by offering future proof value. The N400 and N600 add liquid cooling support at even the mini tower level to make it easier to access and use for all. Industrial. Effortless. Future-ready. With the addition of the N400/N600 series cases joining the existing N200, the N Series stands apart from the competition. It does so with a full array of exciting options that have been designed specifically with cooling performance in mind, especially liquid cooling. Its full mesh front panels and well-ventilated layout provide for a more abundant flow of air throughout the case. Fully embracing liquid cooling, N400/N600 each support liquid cooling radiators up to 240mm. N400 / N600 both have well-placed support for a 240mm radiator on the right-side of the case. Ensuring that no component will go without much needed airflow, N400 supports up to 8 fans while the N600 supports up to 10 fans. Both support long graphics cards (N400 – 320mm / 12.6in, N600 – 430mm / 16.9in) Ready for High-End Setups Although designed to be compact, N400/N600 each leave plenty of space to install extra long graphics cards, several optical drives, HDDs and SSDs, and still have space to route and hide cables.

The ASUS GeForce® GTX 780 DirectCU II OC features an NVIDIA® GK110-300 GPU with 2304 CUDA cores and 3GB of GDDR5 video memory on a 384-bit interface. For avid PC gamers who demand ultra-high detail and readiness for resolutions beyond full HD 1080p, the GeForce® GTX 780 DirectCU II OC card delivers extreme cooling, stability, and endurance well above that of reference card designs. DirectCU II: Up to 30% cooler and three times quieter For the GeForce® GTX 780 DirectCU II OC card, ASUS engineers developed a new thermal design that revolves around a direct-GPU contact 10mm copper heatpipe, compared to traditional 8mm heatpipes. This new design contributes up to a 40% improvement in heat transfer efficiency. The cooler also utilizes a custom designed heatsink, which ensures a significantly larger heat dissipation surface area. Extensive testing guarantees the redesigned ASUS DirectCU II cooler features up to 30% lower temperatu...



be quiet! introduces Shadow Rock 2 tower heat pipe cooler

be quiet!, market leader of power supplies in Germany for seven consecutive years*, today announces an extension to its successful CPU cooler series. With ”Shadow Rock 2“ the German company is adding a square tower heat pipe cooler to their portfolio, which is able to cope with up to 180 watts of power and so can disperse the heat of all current high-end processors. 1.25 square meters of cooling surface achieved by fins The symmetrical heat sink consists of 51 aluminum fins that together give over 1.25 square meters of cooling surface for immediate heat dissipation. The fins have a wave contour on the cooler’s exterior to reduce air turbulence and lower the noise level of the cooler. New and optimized be quiet! fan To supply sufficient air to the heat sink’s large surfaces, the be quiet! Shadow Rock 2 uses a brand new and optimized be quiet! fan. Unlike the Silent Wings fans, be quiet! have developed their new fan to deliver more air pressure for coolers with tighter fin stacks, as with the Shadow Rock 2. Despite delivering increased air pressure, the fan operates at an extremely low noise level of 26 dBA. Users who are looking for even higher cooling performance have the option to attach a second fan to the heat sink. To promote optimized airflow and for compatibility with compact systems, users can choose between four mounting orientations for the cooler to suit their system configuration. Four massive 8 mm heat pipes for effective heat dissipation To effectively...
