ASRock Celebrates Intel Pentium Anniversary with Special Motherboards

The Pentium brand is so important for Intel, that it continues to exist, and the company celebrated its 20th anniversary by launching a special edition dual-core socket LGA1150 Pentium chip that comes with unlocked multipliers. Trouble is, people who buy it would have to opt for expensive motherboards just to overclock it, and would rather balance their expenses with Core i3 and cheaper motherboards, instead. To address that, and bring a bottle to Intel's celebrations, ASRock launched the Anniversary series, with the ATX Z97 Anniversary, and the micro-ATX Z97M Anniversary. As their names suggest, the two are based on Intel's overclocking-ready Z97 Express chipset. The idea behind the two could be to combine the Z97 chipset with a basic VRM that's just about enough to push the Pentium Anniversary Edition chip to its limits.

The Z97 Anniversary is a highly space-optimized ATX motherboard. It draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX, 8-pin EPS, and 4-pin Molex power connectors. It uses a 5-phase VRM to condition power to the CPU, cooled by a heatsink. The CPU is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots, and the lone PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot. Three PCI-Express 2.0 x1, and two legacy PCI make for the rest of its expansion. Storage connectivity includes six SATA 6 Gb/s ports. Networking is care of an Intel-made gigabit Ethernet controller. The onboard 6-channel HD audio is handled by an ALC887 CODEC, but backed by electrolytic capacitors. HDMI is its only display output.

Colorful Unveils Fan Rail Cooling Solution

Colorful showed off its newest air-cooling solution, the fan-rail. Designed for most mid-thru-performance segment graphics cards, the cooler features two rails, along with fans are suspended. You can slide the fans out of the rails (for cleaning), or reposition them as you see fit. This is done by simply pulling out a few thumb-screws holding the fan onto notches along the rail. Under the rail is the card's main aluminium fin stack heatsink, with its usual heat pipe spaghetti.

The fan can spin at speeds ranging between 800 and 1,300 RPM, with a noise output ranging between 11.7 and 21.9 dBA. Among the CPU socket types supported, are LGA2011, LGA115x, AM3+, and FM2+.

Noctua Shows off Tower-type CPU Cooler with Cube-base Heatpipes

In most tower-type CPU heatsinks, central bent portions of heat pipes pass through the CPU base, while their arms pass through ends of an aluminium fin-stack. Noctua plans to improve on that, without trying out expensive solutions such as vapor-chamber plates. Called Cube-base heat pipes, Noctua's solution include heat pipes that originate at the base, shooting straight up through the central portion of the aluminium fin stack, for a more even distribution of heat. Noctua implemented the cube-base heat pipes on a variation of its popular NH-U14S heatsink, which it displayed.

Arctic Announces Four New Universal Graphics Card Coolers

Arctic Cooling announced four new graphics card coolers, the Accelero Hybrid II-120, the Accelero Xtreme IV, the Accelero Xtreme IV 280, and the Accelero Twin Turbo III, pictured below in that order. The Accelero Hybrid II-120, as its name might suggest, is a combination of an air and liquid cooling solution. It combines a large heatsink that cools memory and VRM; and a closed-loop GPU cooler, with a 120 mm radiator assembly. The cooler supports all modern graphics cards, including those based on NVIDIA's GK110 (eg: GTX 780 Ti), GK104 (eg: GTX 760), GK106 (eg: GTX 660); and AMD's "Hawaii" (eg: R9 290X), "Tahiti" (eg: R9 280X), and "Pitcairn/Curacao" (eg: R9 270X). Arctic is pricing this cooler at $130.

Moving on, there's the Accelero Xtreme IV. It features a similar backside heatsink to the Accelero Hybrid II-120, which cools the memory and VRM; while the GPU is cooled by a large aluminium fin-stack heatsink. The heatsink confines to two expansion slots, but is taller than a standard full-height add-on card. The heatsink is 288 mm long, 104 mm tall, and 54 mm thick. It features two aluminium fin stacks arranged along the length of the heatsink, to which heat drawn from the GPU is conveyed by five 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes. The heatsink is ventilated by three 92 mm fans that each have 4-pin PWM control. The Accelero Xtreme IV supports all the GPUs that the Accelero Hybrid II-120 does. It's priced at $100.
