As an avid overclocker myself, having the freedom to help design a board specifically for overclockers has been a dream come true, and I really hope that overclockers enjoy benching on this board as much as we enjoyed making it!”

Scythe Announces the Rasetsu Performance CPU Cooler

Japanese manufacturer Scythe officially announces the new CPU Cooler Rasetsu. This cooler, already shown at the CeBit 2010, combines the outstanding design of the Yasya CPU Cooler with a top-flow layout. The heatsink is divided into two blocks, and each is equipped with the T.M.L.F. (Trident Multi Layer Fin) structure. Because of this irregular lamellar structure and the unparallel arrangement of six copper heatpipes, surface directly cooled by the fan is highly increased and thus maximum heat dissipation is achieved.

New 120 mm "Slip Stream 120 PWM Adjustable" fan is supplied for optimized airflow. Although the fan supports the PWM feature, user can manually adjust the bandwidth between 470 to 1,370 rpm and 740 to 1,900 rpm. Easy mounting is available by the famous V.T.M.S. (Versatile Tool-Free Multiplatform System) which requires no motherboard removal for the heatsink mounting. Rasetsu CPU Cooler is compatible to all current sockets, including the new socket LGA 1156, LGA 1366 and AM3.

Prolimatech Readies Samuel 17 Low-Profile CPU Heatsink

Prolimatech's latest creation is an HTPC-friendly low-profile CPU heatsink named Samuel 17, after the Biblical Old Testament chapter with the story of David and Goliath. The cooler uses a CPU base in which six nickel-plated copper heat pipes make direct contact with the processor, and convey heat to a dense aluminum fin array that propagates along the plane of the motherboard. On this, users can install a 120 mm fan. The heatsink measures 92 x 45 x 82 mm, weighing 410 g. It supports all current sockets including LGA 1366, LGA 1156, LGA 775, AM3/AM2(+). It is expected to be priced at 40 Euros when it goes on sale.

ASUS Simplifies P6T Deluxe with P6T

Roughly a month into its release, the P6T Deluxe is the most "affordable" LGA 1366 motherboard by ASUS. This however, isn't one of the most affordable LGA 1366 motherboards there are. There is a need for ASUS to cater to the value-ended LGA 1366 segment, which already has other major motherboard vendors' offerings such as the MSI X58 Platinum, Gigabyte EX58 DS4, etc.

ASUS will be releasing a toned-down variant of the P6T Deluxe, to be named P6T. It is based on the Intel X58 + ICH10R chipset. The CPU power circuitry consists of an 8+2 phase design. The memory is powered by a 2-phase circuit. ASUS reworked the arrangement of the expansion card slots, with uniform spacing between the three PCI-Express x16 slots (have electrical lane arrangements of x16/16/x1 or x16/x8/x8). The motherboard supports ATI CrossFireX and NVIDIA 3-way SLI. A slightly simplistic component cooling has been introduced. There is a single gigabit ethernet controller. With these, ASUS looks to bring the motherboard out at an attractive price-point.

ASRock Super Computer X58 Motherboard Spotted

Pictures of ASRock's very own X58 motherboard, named simply "X58 Super Computer", appeard today over the web. Now one thing is for sure, it's not really a "super" motherboard and it's not really here to compete with high-end offering, but to appeal to the rest of the audience. After all this is an ASRock, meaning that it will do the work and still offer a good mainstream value with lower price. The motherboard is socket LGA 1366 ready, offering four PCI express x16 slots, three PCI slots and six DDR-3 DIMMs for triple-channel memory kits. The X58 Super Computer comes with completely passive cooling, there are radiators on the north bridge and the board's power elements which are connected by a single heatpipe, while the south bridge is cooled by a modest passive cooler. ASRock's creation also comes with six SATA ports, 12x USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA connector, integrated 7.1 channel audio, dual Gigabit Ethernet and one FireWire connector. This motherboard also implements ASRock's Instant Boot technology, that allows Windows XP or Windows Vista to boot up for 3 to 4 seconds. The AsRock X58 Super Computer has yet to reach stores and receive a price.

ASUS P6T Deluxe OC Palm Edition Spotted

To support the upcoming LGA-1366 socket Core i7 processors, motherboard manufacturers have their first-waves of motherboards ready. ASUS for one, has had its P6T Deluxe pictured before several of its competitors could have their flagship motherboards pictured on the internet. Enter P6T Deluxe OC Palm Edition. What's new with this motherboard is that it bundles a gadget ASUS calls an "OC Palm", looking at its visual similarity to hand-held PCs. The device holds controls apart from an LCD screen. What this gadget does is, that it allows you on-the-fly overclocking of several system parameters for which, you would have had to use the system BIOS configuration. The device is handled by software that does the changes, it connects to the motherboard using standard USB interface, and the LCD screen gives the convenience of overclocking even when say playing a game. That apart, the package gives you essentially the same P6T Deluxe motherboard.
