ASUS Z97 Deluxe Pictured, Too

Here's the first picture of a market-ready version of ASUS' Z97 Deluxe motherboard, from the company's mainline computer brand. ASUS seems to have received screaming feedback from some quarters that bright gold isn't the best choice heatsink color, and if Z97 Deluxe is anything to go by, we might see a softer champagne tone of gold, with a more minimalist heatsink design. The Z97 Deluxe is packed to the brim with features, beginning with a 16-phase CPU VRM. The LGA1150 socket is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots, and three PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots. Storage connectivity appears to include six SATA 6 Gb/s, one SATA-Express, one M.2, and possibly one or more eSATA. Other connectivity includes 8-channel HD audio with ground-layer isolation, dual gigabit-Ethernet interfaces, WLAN, and a large number of USB 3.0 ports. We also scored a teaser pic of the flagship mini-ITX motherboard from ASUS based on the Z97 chipset, likely named the Z97-I Deluxe. It should give you a closer look of the chipset heatsink design.

Cryorig Teases the C1 ITX CPU Cooler

After debuting in the CPU cooler scene with a bang, Cryorig is reading its first low-profile product for the ITX and SFF desktop markets, the C1 ITX. This top-flow cooler uses an aluminium fin-stack design, in which heat drawn from the base is conveyed to the stack using four nickel-plated copper heat pipes. The stack is larger than it looks, although we don't have the exact dimensions at hand, and is ventilated by a 140 mm XT140 PWM spinner. The cooler will support most modern CPU socket types, from both Intel and AMD. Cryorig is currently testing the C1 ITX, and hopes to ship it out by May.
