MSI Planning Gaming Series Cases and Coolers

"Gaming Series" proved to be a successful way for MSI to package its graphics cards and motherboards. The signature deep-red and black color scheme, coupled with the "dragon" logo deck up MSI products in a premium way that only ROG managed for ASUS; and the company is looking to milk it further. According to an Expreview report, MSI is planning to launch Gaming Series-branded cases and cooling solutions. MSI isn't new to cases, but its cases haven't exactly made a mark for themselves, or seen wide availability. The company will, hence, tie up with proven case (and cooling) manufacturers such as NZXT, and share its branding with them.

Enthusiasts in China spotted MSI Gaming Series variants of popular NZXT cases, such as the Phantom 410 (pictured below), and also certain cases from Jonsbo, a local Lian Li-like case maker that specializes in all-aluminium monoliths. Sources also told Expreview that MSI could share the Gaming Series brand with the likes of Thermalright/Cogage, which could launch a variant of its True Spirit TS120 tower-type CPU air cooler.

Thermalright HR-22 Heatsink Officially Launched

Having made its first public appearance way back in November 2012, and trade-show display at this year's Computex event, it's been a long journey to the market for Thermalright's massive HR-22 CPU heatsink, which is so large, that you wouldn't need an additional fan, to cool a typical CPU, and can rely on the rear fan of your case to gently ventilate it. The company formally launched it.

The HR-22 is a monolithic aluminium fin stack heatsink to which heat is fed by eight 6 mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes. Each fin features a series of cuts and air-guides, which make up the heatsink's DPAS (directed passive airflow system), that taps into the natural convection within a PC case, and utilizes it fully, to dissipate heat from the CPU. Measuring 120 mm x 150 mm x 159 mm (WxDxH), the HR-22 weighs 1.12 kg, and supports all modern CPU socket types, including LGA2011, LGA115x, LGA1366, AM3+/AM3, and FM2+/FM2.

Thermalright Releases the AXP-200 Low-Profile CPU Cooler

Thermalright has now rolled out its latest heat-dispersing creation, the HTPC-friendly AXP-200 CPU cooler. This low-profile cooler measures 150 (L) x 140 (W) x 60 (H) mm, it weighs 475 grams and features six 6 mm-thick heatpipes, a nickel plated copper base, an adjustable fan mount, and a 150 mm fan operating at 700 to 1300 RPM (maximum sound level is 30.6dBA).

The AXP-200 supports Intel LGA775/1156/1366/1155/2011/1150 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2 processors and costs €49.99.

Thermalright AXP-200 CPU Cooler Detailed

Thermalright's AXP-100 SFF-friendly C-type heatsink is about to get a bigger sibling, the AXP-200. Its engineering drawings were leaked to the web, revealing a C-type cooler capable of latching on to large 140 mm fans, measuring 153 x 140 x 60 mm, and weighing in at 475 g. Its basic design is identical to the AXP-100, with a compact 22 mm clearance between the fin-stack and the base.

The AXP-200 uses six 6 mm-thick heat pipes that emerge from a nickel-plated copper base, conveying heat to an aluminum fin-stack that's arranged along the plane of the motherboard. It features 48 fins with a spacing of 2 mm. The AXP-200 should ship with a 140 mm fan (likely stock TY-140), although it's capable of handling CPUs with up to 35W TDP completely fan-less. There's no word on when exactly we'll see it in stores, or at what price.

Intel Sandy Bridge-E Can Reach Close to 5 GHz on Air-Cooling

As Intel's Core i7 "Sandy Bridge-E" processors in the LGA2011 package inch closer to their mid-November launch, there is already hectic activity among manufacturers of related components such as motherboards, memory, and coolers. By now, a large section of the industry has engineering samples to help design and test their components. OCWorkbench was witness to one such pre-release setup on which a Core i7 "Sandy Bridge-E" (unknown model, could even be quad-core for all we know), overclocked to 4.92 GHz with a "regular" air-cooler. The chip was idling at 45°C.

Sandy Bridge-E, as we know, can be effectively overclocked by increasing its base clock (BClk). On this particular setup, the BClk was set at 120 MHz, with a multiplier value of 41X, and core voltage of 1.51V. The memory used was DDR3-2400 MHz with CAS latency of 10T. This is particularly encouraging, not just to enthusiasts on a tight budget, but also the cooling products industry in general. Core i7 "Sandy Bridge-E" retail boxes don't contain a cooling solution, and Intel has been showing off its branded closed-loop water-cooling solution (to be purchased separately) as something that's "recommended" for Core i7 "Sandy Bridge-E". This gave many an impression that you need at least closed-loop water coolers for any hope of achieving decent overclocked speeds with these chips, and that perhaps these chips are bad overclockers in general. The likes of Xigmatek, Thermalright, Noctua, and Scythe can breathe a huge sigh of relief.Source: OCWorkbench

Thermalright Intros Revised Archon CPU Cooler

Air cooling specialist and pioneer of tower-type heatsinks, Thermalright, released a new revision of its Archon CPU cooler. Archon is a large tower-type heatsink that uses long aluminum fins. The heatsink measures 170 (H) x 155 (L) x 53 (W) mm. Such is the length of the fins that with this new revision, Thermalright decided to use a larger 150 mm fan, the Thermalright TY-150.

The TY-150 spins 500 to 1100 RPM, can be controlled using PWM, and has a noise output range of 19 to 23 dBA. The heatsink uses six 6 mm thick nickel plated copper heat pipes to convey heat evenly to the fin stack, in two rows of U-shaped pipes. The fins themselves are angled at spots to improve heat dissipation. The heat pipes converge at a mirrored copper base, but don't make direct contact with the CPU. The new Archon Rev. A is priced at €52.90.

Thermalright Intros Archon CPU Cooler, Makes Room for Memory

Thermalright introduced its latest CPU cooler, the Archon. Building on the tower-design it pioneered, the Archon carries the sales tagline "make room for your memory", meaning that it's designed keeping in mind minimal intrusion of the motherboard's memory area. It did this by reducing the depth of the heatsink, while making up for it with length. The Archon makes use of a 140 mm fan for ventilation. The aluminum fins are not very planar, instead propagate in a zig-zag manner to increase air turbulence.

Six 6 mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes convey heat to the aluminum fins from the base, which are uniformly spread across the area. A Thermalright TY-140 fan is bundled, which spins at speeds between 900 and 1300 rpm, with noise levels of 19-21 dBA. A tube of Thermalright Chill Factor III thermal compound is also bundled. All current CPU socket types are supported, namely LGA1366, LGA1156, AM3/AM2(+) and LGA775. The company did not give out pricing and availability, yet.
