ID-Cooling Intros Ice Flow ARGB Snow Series AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

ID-Cooling today unveiled the Ice Flow ARGB Snow line of all-in-one liquid closed-loop CPU coolers. These are essentially a whitewash of the original Ice Flow ARGB series the company unveiled in July 2020. With silvery white taking over the cooler's CPU block, its Nylon tubing sleeves, the radiator (including its aluminium fins), the compound fan's frame, and the impeller. The impeller is still studded with addressable RGB LEDs at the hub. A unique feature with the Ice Flow ARGB series is the location of the pump+reservoir, which is at the radiator, rather than integrated with the CPU water block. The Ice Flow ARGB flow debuts with a 240 mm x 120 mm variant that has a dual impeller compound fan. The cooler has the same specs and cooling capacity (of 250 W) as the original. The company didn't reveal pricing.

EK Water Blocks Releases Vector Water Block for EVGA RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 XC3

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is launching its premium high-performance GPU water block for the EVGA XC3 edition of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. The new water block is named EK-Quantum Vector XC3 RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB and is exclusively engineered for the EVGA XC3 RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 GPUs. The EK-Quantum Vector XC3 RTX 3080/3090 water block is compatible with EVGA XC3 RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards. This Vector water block actively cools the GPU, top-facing VRAM, and inductors and MOSFETs in the VRM section.

These newly developed XC3 water blocks feature optimized flow paths that reduce hydrodynamic instabilities and vortexing (dead spots) inside of them. An Open Split-Flow cooling engine design is implemented, which proved to be a superior solution for GPU water blocks. It is characterized by low hydraulic flow restriction, meaning it can be used with weaker water pumps or pumps running on low-speed settings, and still achieve top performance. The jet plate and fin structure geometry have been optimized to provide even flow distribution with minimal losses and optimal performance when used in any given coolant flow orientation, unlike some products that are currently available on the market.

ARCTIC Announces Freezer 50 CPU Cooler

This month, a true cooling giant is increasing ARCTIC's extensive range of high-performance CPU coolers: the multi-compatible dual tower cooler Freezer 50. Gloves off for the next round: ARCTIC's Freezer 50 TR successfully took on the challenge of taming the monster CPU, AMD's Ryzen Threadripper. Now, the Freezer 50 enters the ring with a broader attack. The distinctive design and the impressive performance remain, while its wide compatibility with current Intel and AMD CPUs is new.

The imposing dual-tower cooler is one of the most powerful air coolers that ARCTIC has developed. Equipped with six massive U-shaped, direct-touch heat pipes 104 aluminium fins and two fans, the Freezer 50 achieves the best heat dissipation and excellent cooling performance. A combination of a 120 and 140 mm P-Fans in push-pull configuration is used, producing strong airflow without compromising on volume—even at maximum speed, the Freezer 50 only reaches 0.4 sone.

Bitspower Releases RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Full-Coverage Blocks with Tail-end Intakes

Bitspower today released its Classic series full-coverage water blocks for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Founders Edition graphics cards (model numbers: BP-VG3090FE and BP-VG3080FE). The two cards take advantage of the short PCB length of NVIDIA's Founders Edition PCBs, and position their coolant terminals at the tail ends, rather than at the top.

The blocks use nickel-plated copper as primary material, with mirror finish at the GPU and memory contact areas. The top is clear acrylic, and studded with addressable RGB LEDs. A back-plate is included with the block. The main coolant channel passes through nearly all hot-zones on the obverse side of the PCB, including the GPU, the up to 24 memory pads, and DrMOS. Even the RTX 3080 variant includes a back-plate, possibly in anticipation of the 20 GB variant that has memory chips on the reverse side of the PCB. The BP-VG3080FE is priced at USD $158, while the BP-VG3090FE goes for $202.

SPC Gear Announces LIX and LIX Plus Onyx White Gaming Mouse

SPC Gear, the gaming label of the European manufacturer SilentiumPC, presents the new Onyx White version of its ultra-light gaming mice LIX Plus and LIX. The name LIX has its origins in Roman and stands for the number 59, which in turn stands for the total weight of mere 59 grams of the featherlight gaming mice. SPC Gear has developed both the LIX Plus Onyx White and the LIX Onyx White for games that require quick response times, high speeds and precise directional changes. This is realized by utilizing the Pixart PMW3360 on the LIX Plus Onyx White and the Pixart PMW3325 sensor on the LIX Onyx White. Both are also equipped with TPFE mouse skates to enable lightning-fast movements and Omron switches to ensure that players' actions are executed with the appropriate speed. The lightweight is due to the special honeycomb design of the mouse shell, which also cools the hand.

The Onyx White version of the LIX Plus and LIX gaming mice uses the proven honeycomb design of the series and blends the mouse as well as the sleeved Paracord cables in elegant white color. The fully addressable RGB lighting is implemented in the LIX Onyx White models and offers a vast variety of color choices and effects. Gamers are able to customize the lighting for the scroll wheel, the chassis and the SPC Gear logo inside the structure separated according to their liking. It is also possible to assign separate colors and effects to the individual profiles, allowing the users to immediately see which profile is currently active.

EK Water Blocks for ROG Strix NVIDIA RTX 30 Series Graphics Cards Now Available

EK, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is ready to offer its premium high-performance GPU water block for ASUS ROG Strix edition NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. This huge new water block is named EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB, and it is very important to keep in mind that it's meant only for the ROG Strix graphics cards.

"For years now, each generation of ROG Strix edition full-cover water blocks was utilizing bridge covers to channel coolant over the tall capacitors in the VRM zone. This time around, the layout of the PCB allowed us to make a water block without a stainless-steel bridge cover, making the entire coolant flow path visible. Our engineering team also went the distance on the copper cold plate design that now extends over almost the full length of the PCB," said Edvard König, the founder of EK.
