Noctua presents two asymmetrical 140mm CPU coolers

Noctua presents two asymmetrical 140mm CPU coolers Vienna, May 18th – Noctua today announced two new additions to its portfolio of premium-quality, quiet CPU coolers with 140mm fans. Whereas the NH-D15S is a high-compatibility single fan version of the elite-class dual tower model NH-D15, the NH-C14S replaces the proven top-flow cooler NH-C14. Both the NH-D15S and NH-C14S feature an asymmetrical layout in order to avoid blocking the top PCIe slot. “140mm coolers have become the default choice for enthusiasts who seek superior cooling performance for overclocking or near-silent operation, but these tend to block the top PCIe slot on many current motherboards” says Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “With the NH-D15S and NH-C14S, we’ve updated our successful 140mm dual tower and top-flow coolers with asymmetrical layouts that ensure the best PCIe compatibility.” Tailored to provide superior RAM and PCIe compatibility, the NH-D15S is an asymmetrical single fan version of Noctua’s award-winning flagship model, the NH-D15. Thanks to its asymmetrical design, the NH-D15S clears the top PCIe slot on most µATX and ATX motherboards. At the same time, the single NF-A15 PWM fan setup and recessed lower fins guarantee 100% RAM compatibility with memory modules of up to 65mm height. Users who have sufficient room can also upgrade the cooler with either a 120mm or round 140mm fan on the front fin stack for further improved performance in dual fan mode...

Scythe presents new Ninja 4 CPU Cooler

 Scythe presents new Ninja 4 CPU Cooler 11.05.2015, Oststeinbek (Germany) – Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces the official successor of Ninja 3 Rev. B CPU Cooler. Ninja 4 comes with some major technical innovations, including the increased performance and reduction of overall weight by 180 grams. Wide range compatibility to the common sockets from AMD™ and Intel™ is assured, which is very typical for Scythe products. Ninja 4 stays true to the core concept of the Ninja series, by keeping focus on passive and semi-passive cooling capabilities of the tower-cooler. To further underline this core concept, a new fan with additional features has been introduced. The GlideStream 120 PWM fan has been equipped with a special fan controller, allowing users to switch between three different fan speed ranges. Low mode has been tuned for extremely silent operation, where PWM control range varies from 300 to 800 RPM at virtually inaudible noise levels from 4,0 to 12,5 dBA. Medium mode suits most user purposes, as it covers a wider range from 300 to 1.150 RPM and offers the best performance to silence ratio. The last mode has been implemented for users seeking more performance, since it offers the maximum fan speed range starting at 300 and ending at 1.500 RPM. Supplied GlideStream 120 PWM fan has great influence on the Ninja 4 design in addition, thanks to its grey fan blades and black fan-frame. Scythe has made modifications to the structural design of the Ninja 4, where t...

CYBERPOWERPC Delivers Trinity Gaming PC With Other-Worldly Form, Fashion and Function

CYBERPOWERPC Trinity Gaming PC Delivers Other-Worldly Form, Fashion and Function  Radical Triple Blade Design is not Just Eye Candy, It’s a Performance Beast   CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA (April 21, 2015) – CyberPower Inc., www.cyberpowerpc.com, a global manufacturer of custom gaming PCs, gaming laptops, and performance workstations, today announced it is taking orders for its Trinity gaming PC, a striking new concept in gaming PC design that splits the common hulking tower enclosure into three distinct “blades.”   The CYPOWERPC Trinity is both an exercise in radical case design and a case study on the benefits of component compartmentalization. While the case defies imagination, there is a method to the madness of segregating certain components from others in order to dissipate heat while not sacrificing performance.   Split into three blades, the Trinity is designed to individually provide maximum cooling capacity to the major heat-generating components in the system. The tri-point design of the Trinity allows for powerful configurations in this striking chassis. The chassis supports the biggest and highest-output power supplies, as well as the longest and most powerful graphics cards. Support is also included for 120mm liquid cooling for the CPU.   The “Performance Blade” houses the graphics card that allows the Trinity to rip through the latest games. It supports full-length graphics cards, including the NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X and AMD Radeon R...

Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 2400MHz Review

The Ballistix performance series memory has proven popular for their stock performance, overclock-ability, quality and the ever changing style employed by Crucial.

This time around we will be looking at the latest addition to the Ballistix family, the Ballistix Sport LT.

Biostar Hi-FI Z97Z7 MotherBoard Review

iostar has released multiple "Hi-Fi" models over the last few years that were designed to fill the mainstream and multimedia space. With a heavy focus on audio reproduction and connectivity these board have done well in this arena. However none have taken on an appearance that speaks to being a higher end product like the Hi-Fi Z97Z7 has. This new look has genuinely piqued my interest. I do however remain optimistically cautious for fear it may turn out to be a budget board in mid-range product's clothing.
