Deepcool Announces LUCIFER CPU Cooler

Deepcool, the leading manufacturer of desktop CPU cooler, VGA cooler, DC case fan and Notebook cooler, officially released their first fanless CPU cooler—LUCIFER under the sub-brand GAMER STORM, which is named after the hero from the well-known and popular video game DotA (Defense of the Ancients) for Warcraft III. The most important skill of this cooler is to “Devour” the heat massively. Lucifer CPU cooler is designed to cool the mainstream processors in fanless mode to create a totally silent system; meanwhile, Lucifer is also capable of cooling high-end processors with the help of good airflow inside the case. The bundled 14cm patented rubber fan is able to enhance the cooling capacity of Lucifer up to 300W. And Lucifer also supports push-pull configuration. There’re 6 heatpipes firmly soldered onto the copper base to enhance the heat conductivity from the processor to the heatsink. The heatpipes are specially placed asymmetrically to ensure good compatibility with the memory. The cooler has a massive surface and wide gap between the fins to allow quick heat dissipation in passive mode and fast airflow through in fan mode. The heatsink body is fully nickel plated to prevent from oxidation and increase durability of the product. One 14cm PWM rubber fan is bundled in to increase the cooling performance. Users can use this fan as a case fan or use it to push/pull the cool air through the heatsink.   With multiple clips, this cooler can support all mainstream p...

PowerColor Devil HD7870 2GB

We've previously seen two Devil-branded cards from PowerColor, the behemoth 7990 and a previous-gen 6970, both of which are (or were) flagship premium cards. But the Devil HD 7870 2GB is a mid-range card, coming with an attractive price tag of $260. It's a bit unusual to see a custom cooler, improved power design, and attention to detail on such a modestly priced card, but we certainly approve of the move by PowerColor; better for consumers, we say.

It’s powered by the very same Horizontal Vapor Chamber (HVC) Technology that keeps high-end graphics cards cool while containing the sheer raw force of a maelstrom within its huge, powerful fans. Epic Air Cooling Power Seemingly channeling the power of the muscle cars that inspired its design and the wind deities that grant them passage, V8 GTS is without equal. It dissipates large amounts of heat through its marriage of HVC and an optimized fin tower design. V8 GTS is built with triple tower heatsinks and eight high performance heat pipes all to channel the massive amount of heat being pulled away from the processor by the vapor chamber. Despite its menacing high performance engine outlook and large stature, V8 GTS still leaves plenty of space for memory slots. High-grade POM Fan Bearings Dual high airflow 140mm fans funnel a veritable vortex through the triple heatsink array. These fans are equipped with a new generation of fan bearings known as POM. These fans are not only virtually dustproof, they will last up to an astounding 160,000 hours of use. This lifespan is due to a unique self-lubricating and low friction POM bearing design.
