October News Round Up: SWIFTECH Apogee XL2, GAMER STORM Genome II, GTX 1050 Ti and More!

Welcome back to our second roundup of hardware news that happened this month. The CPU and GPU side of things may have slowed down a tad, but there’s a lot that happened with cooling and cases. Let’s dive in and get excited about what’s coming down the road! CPUs Let’s start out with an update on Kaby Lake. Geekbench came out with some impressive results and the story made it look like INTEL has merely been holding back for a while. Recently however, an i5-7500K sample was benchmarked and only showed about a 10% improvement over Skylake. This is actually pretty disappointing, especially considering that the 4970K is still a top tier single thread performer. On the plus side, it looks like all 100 series motherboards will be able to support Kaby Lake with a BIOS update, but I doubt many will see the need to upgrade from Skylake in such a short time table. At the time being, ASUS is the only brand this is confirmed for, but that’s a good indication that other manufactures will follow suit. We’re still a ways out from release so we can almost expect performance to fluctuate a bit more until closer to release. http://wccftech.com/intel-core-i5-7600k-kaby-lake-cpu-benchmarks/ http://wccftech.com/kaby-lake-support-asus-100-series-motherboards-confirmed/ GPUs The big news this month was the release of the GTX 1050 Ti and the 1050. Each GPU offers a great budget option for 1080p gaming while being extremely energy efficient. Rather than reinvent ...



ID-COOLING Releases the Hunter Duet AIO Cooling Unit with Two Integrated Pumps

The longer AIOs stick around, it seems that companies find more ways to try and “differentiate” themselves from the competition. You’re probably thinking at first glance that two pumps in one loop is just another hype train to sell units, but once you discover that the second pump is built entirely for a GPU, then everything begins to make sense. What ID-COOLING is trying with a built in CPU and GPU pump on the Hunter Duet is a good idea, but there’s one potential issue that could arise and only time will tell. The great thing about the AIO market is it’s introducing new ideas to consumers in ways that are much easier, and more cost efficient, than custom liquid loops. With the Hunter Duet, you have a much simpler method to introduce consumers to liquid cooling a graphics cards than on a custom loop. Normally, you would have to buy a properly fitted block and fittings that can cost almost as much as the entire ID-COOLING unit. The concept is great but there could be a potential problem that I hope the design team has taken into account. In my journey with trying to make the Cooler Master Glacer 240l work for my system, I came across a design issue that stemmed from how the pump and reservoir was designed. In short, the loop wasn’t balancing out the liquid pressure on both sides of the pump properly which would cause it to burn out prematurely (usually lasting 1-2 months tops). Due to the fact that one pump will be pumping directly into ...



ID-Cooling Dual Air Cooling Review SE-204K and SE-214-X

Cooling may not be the priority when building a home computer but it remains a very important part. Some crave liquid cooling for ultra low temps and others my just need a good low cost solution. Today, we have two new air coolers from ID-Cooling called the SE-204K and SE-214X that are aimed at the later



ID-COOLING Booth Review @ COMPUTEX 2014

ID-COOLING Booth Review @ COMPUTEX 2014  Jun. 6, Taipei – ID-COOLING might be unfamiliar to many of you, but in fact they’ve been in cooling business for a decade, mainly developing OEM business for different purposes. During this Computex, ID-COOLING rolls out a full line of computer hardware products, ranging from CPU air cooling to aluminum Micro cases.  They made this astounding demo computer constructed by heatpipe and aluminum fins. Actually the wings you see are used as CPU and VGA cooling.  One fascinating product that intrigues us is the FI-REEX DELUXE CPU air cooler. The heatsink is composed of a vapor chamber, six heatpipes that directly connected with the vapor chamber sharing the same vapor cavity, two more U-shaped 8mm heatpipes and a set of shining nickel plated heatsink fins. Mounted with two 140mm PWM fans, this cooler is set to handle up to 300W. Other than the unique air cooler, ID-COOLING also present a full range of air coolers, including traditional tower heatsinks and low-profile cooler for small PC builders    Moving on, we spot their AIO liquid cooler prototypes: Frostflow 240S and Frostflow 120S. ID-COOLING claims to launch them in the market within two months with quite affordable prices.  Besides cooling, ID-COOLING also developed a Micro case line. The Silencer ITX case has pure aluminum housing. This case has no fan at all but a passive heatsink for the cooling, up to 45W processor. It supports Mini-ITX boards, two 2.5” HDD/SSD and...
