Best of Computex 2015

Computer hardware news is getting pretty stagnant as of late. It’s not that there isn’t new things coming out, it’s just most of the releases I’ve been seeing are hardly more that a slight revamp of what’s already out. That being said though, there are still some components that can turn heads and Computex brought us some intriguing devices that I feel are worth some honorable mentions. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the top 5 releases in components from Computex 2015. #5 LEPA EXllusion240 It’s going to be pretty apparent why this unit is last on the list. There isn’t very much that separates this unit from just about any other AIO on the market. The ability to add custom dye to the coolant is a neat feature, but isn’t anything revolutionary. The EXllusion240 may be expandable, but I haven’t seen anything that officially confirms that. The only thing that caught my eye is the massive 400w + TDP rating. That’s a huge thresh hold and while other coolers brag about great cooling performance, very few put a number like that on it. We’ll have to wait for some reviews to see how well LEPA lives up to it’s claims, but when all else fails, I would gladly like to break my previous records. http://www.lepatek.com/eng/newscontent/93/ #4 INTEL Z170 Motherboards For the last few generations, INTEL has been giving us minor improvements that involve fairly hefty price tags.

Noctua at Computex 2015

Noctua at Computex 2015 Vienna, June 11th 2015 – At last week’s Computex Taipei trade fair, Noctua exhibited a wide range of its upcoming products and received the 1st European Hardware Award for its renowned NH-D15 dual-tower cooler. Ranging from fan and heatsink prototypes on custom designs for industrial clients to updates on its Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) project, Noctua’s line-up for this year’s show has received excellent feedback from the international press. Awarded best cooling product of Computex 2015 by Tom’s Hardware, the highlight of the Austrians’ line-up was the upcoming next-generation 120mm A-series fan, which will succeed the award-winning NF-P12 and integrates Noctua’s latest technologies in order to provide unprecedented efficiency across a broad range of applications. Featuring an ultra-tight 0.5mm tip clearance and a pressure/airflow (P/Q) curve that has been carefully fine-tuned for mid to high impedance applications, the new fan performs exceptionally well on CPU heatsinks and water-cooling radiators. Noctua also showcased a redux version of the NF-P12 that is going to be introduced at the launch of the new 120mm A-series fan, which is currently scheduled for Q1 2016. After updating their 92mm coolers and 14cm dual-tower model last year, Noctua gave the first preview of future updates to the renowned NH-U12 and NH-U14 single tower series. The fins of the prototypes are deeper than those of the current NH-U12S and NH-U14S, resultin...
