Thermaltake go Massive with new notebook cooler

By: Array

Often we'll see the release of yet another notebook cooler into the market that does little to stand out and impress us with anything we haven't already seen before. However, Thermaltake have stepped forward in radical fashion and announced today something that does indeed have its eye catching attributes straight off the bat.

Appropriately dubbed the "Massive 23 GT" notebook cooler, it sports a beefy 200mm fan which can operate between 5 and 800RPM, giving up to 24 dBA of sound output. The overall unit measures 352 x 293.1 x 41.4 mm, weighing in at 907 grams and supports notebooks sized anywhere between 10 and 17 inches.

The going gets tough with three more Toughpower Silver PSUs from Thermaltake

By: Array

Thermaltake has just refreshed its Toughpower Silver line of gamer/enthusiast-grade modular PSUs with three new high-end additions to complement the existing 1350W model the company launched late last year.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20610_03_the_going_gets_tough_with_three_more_toughpower_silver_psus_from_thermaltake.jpg

 

The new models include a 1000W, 1200W and 1500W, all featuring 80 Plus Silver certification (with up to 91% efficiency) as well as ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 compliance, double forward switching circuitry which enables low power loss and high reliability and the use of Japanese electrolytic and solid state capacitors.

 

All three PSUs use a 13.5mm PWM fan. The 1000W and 1200W models have dual 12V rails, while the 1500W model has quad 12V rails.

 

 

Thermaltake provides all units with active PFC and a MTBF (mean time before failure) of over 120,000 hours. They come with a five-year warranty. Pricing details are yet to be disclosed.

BitFenix Outlaw breaks some rules in mid-tower chassis' design

By: Array

Our friends at BitFenix have just added another new, competitively priced mid-tower gaming case to their line-up dubbed the Outlaw. It features that lovely SofTouch coating and an all-black (inside and out) color theme.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20609_01_bitfenix_outlaw_breaks_some_rules_in_mid_tower_chassis_design.jpg

 

The case runs dimensions of 438 x 180 x 478 mm and provides four USB 2.0 ports via the I/O panel situated at the top front. There are four 5.25" bays as well as one internal 2.5-inch (handy for your SSD) and four 3.5-inch trays that use a tool-free mounting design.

 

The motherboard tray is inverted in the case which provides more effective cooling as well as a more accomodating fit for longer graphics cards.

New Alpenföhn Triglav CPU cooler holds "biggest heatpipe" record

By: Array

Euro based mob EKL is readying up a pretty beefy looking CPU cooler under its Alpenföhn brand for release early next month, the Triglav. While looking like your traditional tower-style design, it's very non traditional in the sense that it uses whopping 10mm-thick heatpipes (!!); three of them.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20557_04_new_alpenf_hn_triglav_cpu_cooler_holds_biggest_heatpipe_record.jpg

 

The heatpipes are made of nickel-plated copper and make their way through 46 aluminum fins that are arranged in a turbulence-inducing pattern (improving heat dissipation, thus giving the ability to safely lower fan speed).

 

The fan included with the Alpenföhn Triglav is 120mm in size, a "Hydro Bearing" fan operating between 850 and 1500RPM via PWM (with up to 21.4dB of sound output).

BitFenix is back in black with the Merc series mid towers

By: Array

BitFenix is back in the limelight with yet another mid-tower chassis launched today that is aimed at the budget gaming crowd.

 

Dubbed the Merc, it comes in two variants - the Alpha and the Beta. Both cases are coated black inside and out, running measurements of 439 (H) x 190 (W) x 490 (D) mm. There is room to accomodate up to three 5.25" devices and there are seven 3.5" bays + 1x2.5" bay internally.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20454_04_bitfenix_is_back_in_black_with_the_merc_series_mid_towers.jpg

 

The top mounted I/O panel has four USB 2.0 ports, headphone and mic jacks. Both versions of the case ship with a 120mm fan at the rear, but the "Beta" model is capable of taking on another five, while the Alpha can take up to eight fans total (you can see the mounting holes and mesh grills on top in the pic).

Cooler Master intros Hyper 612 S/PWM and GeminiII S524 CPU Coolers

By: Array

Cooler Master has added three new CPU coolers to its lineup today, with two high performance models being only mildly different to each other in the Hyper 612 PWM and Hyper 612S, along with the release of the GeminiII S524.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20294_08_cooler_master_intros_hyper_612_s_pwm_and_geminiii_s524_cpu_coolers.jpg

 

The Hyper 612S/PWM models are based around the traditional tower design, measuring 140 x 128 x 163 mm with a weight topping about 910g. They sport a copper base with six uniquely oriented heatpipes that are said to help the heatsink give maximized heat dissipation at lower fan speeds. The all-copper pipes pass through the base then along the length of the airflow optimized fin stack.

Cooler Master's much anticipated COSMOS II pictured

By: Array

In case you weren't already aware, Cooler Master are paving way for the return of COSMOS, their widely loved, iconic enthusiast tower chassis of years past. All the attributes we loved about the COSMOS are said to be remaining, with a ton of exciting new features added into the mix.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20176_01_cooler_master_s_much_anticipated_cosmos_ii_pictured.jpg

 

Now we can get an even better idea of what to expect from the COSMOS II, thanks to the folks over at TPU posting up a number of images of what looks to be a very close to final form version of the chassis.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20176_02_cooler_master_s_much_anticipated_cosmos_ii_pictured.jpg

 

The case remains true to the original with its suspended box shape design, albeit a little more curvey this time around, and is roughly the same overall size, but adds all the good stuff expected from a high end tower of today including USB 3.0 ports, touch sensitive buttons, accommodation for 2.5-inch SSDs and a smarter cooling sub-system arrangement.
