RGB LED

    • This CPU cooler features RGB LED on the side of the cooling fins and on the top cover. With the infrared remote control you can easily switch between the 16 different colors and four lighting modes (FLASH, SPARKLE, Autoplay 1: autoplays all colors in SPARKLE mode, Autoplay 2: autoplays all colors in FLASH mode).
    • Thanks to memory function, NEOllusion will keep the last set LED color after restarting.

Silent-Mode

    • The CPU cooler comes with a fan speed adapter for ultra-silent operation. The adaptor allows you to reduce the fan speed for stable and silent operation.

Fast heat transfer from CPU

    • Patented Heatpipe Direct Touch (HDT) technology enables quick and direct heat transfer from the CPU. It has the unquestionable advantage: It transfers the heat effectively without any additional resistance straight to the heat pipes.

High-Pressure fan with Convex Blades

    • The innovative aerodynamic design of the fan blades produces a high static pressure and increases the air flow. In this way the 120 mm fan equipped with dual convex rotors to grant a higher cooling performance even at lower rpm.

NEOllusion lepa 1

SNTC (Super Nano Thermal Conductive)- Coating

    • This coating protects the heat sink from oxidation and allows excellent heat transfer efficiency.

Vortex Generator Flow Design

    • Vortex generators are applied in aviation industry. They make sure that the air stream is lead as close as possible along the airplane's wings. During the CPU cooler development, the LEPA engineers recognized the potential of this technology to optimize the air stream inside the heat sink: Small spoilers on the fins, the so-called Vortex generators, conduct the air close along the heat pipes. Much more fresh air can be transferred to the back of the heat pipes.

Further information can be found on the official LEPA Europe website.

Availability and Prices

The LEPA NEOllusion CPU cooler (LPANL12) will be available in distribution and retail as of now, at 59,90€ MSRP incl. VAT.

Cooler Master è da oltre 20 anni leader mondiale nella progettazione e produzione di componenti per computer e periferiche ad alte prestazioni dedicate ad un pubblico di appassionati di hardware alla ricerca dell'ultimo ritrovato in termini di tecnologia, funzionalità e personalizzazione.

Continuando la sua tradizione di design all'avanguardia e tecnologia, è lieta di annunciare il nuovissimo case MasterCase Maker 5t, la versione gaming del MasterCase Maker 5.

"Abbiamo voluto puntare su un aspetto deciamente audace rispetto alle linee pulite del MasterCase 5, avvicinandolo a quello di una supercar," ha dichiarato Mark Severin, resposanbile del Product Marketing dei case. "Abbiamo aggiunto qualche extra che lo fara' apprezzare molto dai videogiocatori".

Finiture rosso e nere

Allineato alla combinazione di colori che caratterizzano diverse schede madri e componenti gaming, il MasterCase Maker 5t e' caratterizzato da dettagli in rosso, non si tratta di una normale colorazione, ma viene utilizzata una speciale vernice a scaglie brillanti. Ciò si traduce in una combinazione di colori sorprendente.

Due pannelli laterali in vetro temperato

I dettagli interni del MasterCase Maker 5t sono particolarmente evidenti grazie ai doppi pannelli laterali in vetro temperato. I pannelli sono bruniti ma consentono di osservare da entrambi i lati tutto quello che e' illuminato all'interno del case. Per tutti coloro che desiderano mostrare il proprio sistema in pubblico, i pannelli sono dotati di serratura a chiave.

LED Rossi

Angoli acuti, una striscia magnetica a LED rossi che può essere posizionata ovunque e vernice speciale dello stesso colore donano al case l'aspetto di una vera vettura sportiva.

Controllo della I/O ventola e dell'illuminazione

La scheda di controllo consente di modificare a piacimento le impostazioni della ventola e di illuminazione direttamente dal pannello I/O. La scheda supporta fino a sei ventole e quattro strisce LED, con le impostazioni per alta (12V) e bassa (7V) velocità della ventola ed effetti a luce continua e "respiro" per l' illuminazione a LED.

Maniglia superiore in gomma

Oltre al doppio pannello in vetro temperato, un'altra particolarita' di questo case è rappresentata dalla maniglia superiore ricoperta in gomma antiscivolo. Un resistentissimo telaio in acciaio le consente di sopportare un peso massimo pari 28.5kg.

1005 10 1005 34

Graphics Card Holder

A protezione della scheda video, all'interno del case e' stato inserito un "Graphics Card Holder"; un importante accessorio di serie utile a favorire la corretta distribuzione del peso e sostenere la scheda video.

FreeForm™ Modular System e Configurazione Interna

MasterCase Maker 5t e' basato sul FreeForm™ Modular System. Il sistema modulare FreeForm consente di installare all'interno del case ogni tipo di configurazione, da un sistema server casalingo ad una workstation raffreddata a liquido, sino ad arrivare a realizzare una piattaforma gaming senza compromessi con schede video di elevate lunghezza in configurazione SLI o CrossFire.

Anche MasterCase Maker 5t utilizza questo sistema, ma con alcune opzioni di personalizzazione aggiuntive: il MasterCase Maker 5t Graphics Card Holder e la striscia LED menzionati in precedenza, sono solo un paio degli accessori creati dal design team di Cooler Master e dai diversi "Makers" che collaborano con l'azienda.

La flessibilità del layout interno del MasterCase Maker 5t lo rende semplice da configurare grazie a parti modulari che consentono di rimuovere, far scivolare e riorganizzare l'interno e, nello stesso tempo, di essere in grado di supportare le componenti più voluminose e di fascia alta quali dissipatori ad aria, all-in-one oppure sistemi di raffreddamento a liquido custom.

MasterCase Maker 5t sarà disponibile a partire dalla settimana prossima presso la rete ufficiale di distributori, rivenditori e shop online italiani di Cooler Master ad un prezzo al pubblico consigliato pari a 269 € IVA inclusa.

Ok, è il periodo di Halloween ed effettivamente durante questa festività può risultare divertente terrorizzare amici, parenti e, perché no?, sconosciuti, ma l’articolo apparso su Zero Hedge e pubblicato da Cincarious Research è peggio di un film dell’orrore. AMD acquisita da Oracle?

 

 

Dopo aver visto di cosa è stata capace di fare la multinazionale statunitense, leggendo quell’articolo in molti devono avere urlato! Oracle, infatti, ha distrutto nel verso senso della parola (in ordine sparso): OpenOffice, MySQL, SPARC, Solaris e tutto quello che ruotava attorno a Sun Microsystem. E questi sono solo i prodotti più in vista che Oracle è stata capace di devastare. Al pari di Intel, tutto quello che ha acquisito è andato in malora. Se davvero AMD dovesse finire tra le braccia di Oracle prepariamoci al peggio.

Personalmente, comunque, non crediamo che questo possa accadere, in quanto Oracle non vorrà certamente inimicarsi Intel (La licenza x86 teoricamente non è trasferibile all’acquirente) così da dare il via nuove battaglie legali, visto che la disputa con HP sul supporto ad Itanium è ancora aperta. Inoltre i recenti miglioramenti di AMD in ambito finanziario rendono molto meno impellente la ricerca di un compratore. Il fallimento della casa rossa è ancora lontano qualche anno, anche le cose dovessero andare relativamente male con Zen.

ENERMAX announces the extension of the D.F. product series by adding two 120mm LED fans: D.F. VEGAS and D.F. VEGAS DUO. Both LED fans come with the latest Dust Free Rotation™ (DFR™) technology. The D.F. VEGAS is a single blue color LED fan while the D.F. VEGAS DUO comes with 2-color LED ring (red and green).

 

D.F.VEGAS-1

 

Dust Free Rotation™ technology

    • After starting the PC, the patented DFR™ technology lets the fan spin in reverse allowing the cleaning of the fan blades from dust.
    • Cleaner and better cooled components grant a longer lifetime and a better operation of the products.

Patented Circular-type LED for stunning Lighting Effects

    • D.F. Vegas comes with patented circular LED ring (CLL™) including 12 blue LED diodes to create stunning lighting effects and match every taste.
    • D.F. Vegas Duo is also featured with patented CLL™ technology, but the Duo-LED ring includes 24 LED diodes (12x red and 12x green).
    • Both fan models come with manually switchable LED modes and memory function that allows the user to keep using the favourite lighting mode when the PC is restarted.

D.F.VEGAS-2

Patented Adjustable Peak Speed (APS) Design

    • D.F. VEGAS and D.F. VEGAS DUO are also built with ENERMAX's patented APS design, which enables users to choose the fan's RPM range according to the system configuration and needs.
    • Within the selected RPM range, the fans are controlled by pulse width modulation (PWM). This intelligent design will be able to reach the balance between cooling performance and silent operation.

Patented Twister Bearing™ technology

    • The bearing shaft is fixed to the rotor. When you turn the fan on, a small magnet inside the bearing holds the shaft in position. The convex surface of the base reduces the frictional resistance and ensures a quiet and smooth fan rotation. The sleeve is made from a self-lubricating material and prevents the bearing from draining and corrosion.

That way, Enermax guarantees an exceptionally long lifetime of 160,000 hours (MTBF).

Availability & Product Information

Both fan models will be available for sale in October. For more information on D.F. VEGAS and D.F. VEGAS DUO, please visit ENERMAX website.

ARCTIC expands its fan range – and sets up the 140 mm series completely new. Not only the F14 are available in full model selection for the first time, moreover the big fans are quieter than ever before and equipped with innovative features.

 

arctic-f14 series

F14

    • The standard class ARCTIC had already previously in the assortment – but due to the innovative design of the fan blades and the impeller the F14 presents itself now significantly quieter than its predecessor.

F14 Silent

    • Specially optimized for silent systems, the F14 Silent comes with inaudibly 0.08 Sone. An alloy/lubricant combination reduced friction, which not only lead to increased service life but most of all keeps the operating noise to a minimum.

F14 PWM | F14 PWM PST | F14 PWM PST CO

    • The new PWM controlled fans have a particularly sophisticated solution in their luggage: German engineers were able to further develop the fan so that it not only operates with lower speed at low temperature, actually it only starts up when the performance is needed. This eliminates the fan noise during office work entirely and extends the service life of the fan significantly. Often motherboards don't provide PWM signals below 40 % and thus make the fan unnecessary loud – not so with the F14 PWM, PWM PST and PWM PST CO.

 

arctic-f14 series graph

F14 TC*

    • The ideal temperature control in the entire case is ensured by the F14 TC. A separat temperature sensor is adjusted in such way that it keeps the temperature between 32° and 38° C.

*expected to be available from end of October

arctic-f14 series spec

 

The new F14 series is now available in the ARCTIC-Webshop for 7.99 € MSRP as well as inter alia at Amazon.

Il prezzo delle DRAM, come riportato diverse volte nelle scorse settimane, continua la propria risalita grazie ad una rinnovata richiesta sia nel mercato Server sia nel mercato Mobile.


Il prezzo delle DDR3 nell’arco di un mese (Settembre → Ottobre) è aumentato di circa il 20%, ed anche le memorie DDR4 stanno subendo una sorte analoga. A beneficiarne non saranno sicuramente i consumatori, ma principalmente le aziende produttrici, e più in particolare Samsung, SK Hynix, Micron e Nanya. Questa ascesa dei prezzi dovrebbe continuare almeno fino al 1Q del 2017 compreso.
