Complete with "Patented Isolated Dual System Technology," Phanteks has just announced its PH-PWSPR_1P2M 'Power Splitter' through a recently issued press release.
This product allows you to power two complete systems with a single power supply, useful for applications such as test beds or PC desks - as long as your PSU can handle the stress. Compatible with mITX, uATX, ATX and E-ATX motherboards, this unit claims to protect and control the 12V/5V/3.3V/+5VSB circuit in order to ensure fully functional operation. In addition, this power splitter comes with a soft-start circuit to help reduce inrush current.
The unit comes with a 'hook and loop sticker' and Drop-N-Lock mounting for chassis installation, depending on what your model offers, with the Drop-N-Lock mounting system being suitable for select compatible Phanteks cases. If you're planning to pick up this model for yourself, Phanteks suggests you also grab some of its extension cables in order to connect the power splitter to the motherboards, seeing as your power supply-included cables will only run to the splitter itself.
Complete with IP67 water and dust protection ratings and released in 120mm and 140mm diameter options, Noctua has begun another push into the industrial cooling market with its new NF-F12 and NF-A14 24V fans. Paired with the NE-FD2 three-phase motor driver IC, these spinners are able to operate with supplies anywhere from 6V - 30V.
These new models operate at a maximum 24V speed of 2000rpm and 3000rpm, with Noctua CEO Roland Mossig urging users to test them with 12V connections, stating that these fans will run at much lower noise levels with this lower voltage. While operating at 1100rpm and 1700rpm respectively when attached to this lower connection, these fans can then be further controlled through PWM for even slower spinning speeds.
Said to be "available shortly" in a recent press release, Noctua expects to sell these two models at $34.90 per unit.
Set to build on the SilverStone RAVEN RV01 chassis, the new RVX01 case once again features 90-degree motherboard mounting and more, as seen announced recently in a press release direct from the German office.
With added support for watercooling and three 120mm 'air penetrator' fans included in the initial package, SilverStone's styling and coloring on this chassis looks very much like an ASUS ROG theme. While I'm not saying that this copied ASUS ROG at all, I'd love to see an red and black full ASUS ROG build thrown into this exact case, it would be something that I think color-matched dreams may be made of.
This chassis is set for release on December the 2nd and will cost $75 for the windowless version or $79.50 if you'd rather see your internals. While this case does come packed with the 120mm fans for great airflow, SilverStone has pushed the fact that this chassis contains support for up to three sets of liquid cooling radiators.
As announced in a recently issued press release, SilverStone is looking to help any reference Intel NUC product shine, releasing this chassis that will mount on the rear of any VESA enabled monitor.
The PTS01 supports a 9mm thick 2.5" HDD or SSD for storage, while being compatible with any SATA III or USB 3.0 interface. This SATA III inclusion is a move by SilverStone in order to help the consumer, with the press release citing limitations due to mSATA storage costs as being a major factor throughout its chassis design process.
Constructed out of an aluminium and steel frame, the PTS01 will be available from December 2 and will cost around $29.
Constructed out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper and POM Acetal or acrylic glass material, EK Water Blocks' new GIGABYTE Z170 motherboard monoblocks are a sight to behold. Supporting Z170X motherboards in the form of the Gaming 5, Gaming 7 and UD5 TH, these new monoblocks utilize the "EK-Supremacy EVO cooling engine" as pinpointed in a recent press release.
Released in Nickel or Acetal + Nickel configurations, expect to spend over $125 each on these new products, listed as 119.95 Euro including VAT when purchased direct through EK Water Blocks.
Produced in Slovenia, Europe, these two new models are available for purchase from the company directly through the EK Webshop.
Designed to mimic the already-released Pandora chassis but as an ATX version, this new BitFenix case offers additional watercooling support and is designed with modders and DIY enthusiasts in mind.
Featuring what is claimed as "the same much-loved unique styling," it's interesting to note that the front panel on this model looks a little like Thermaltake's Soprano cases of old. While we say it reminds us a 'little', that's because it is only a little - with the Pandora looking to offer vast superiority of modding and support over these Thermaltake cases released pre-2014.
Chassis features include space for 440mm long video cards, the capacity for four 2.5" SSDs and four 3.5" hard disks, support for power supplies up to 220mm in length and the capacity to fit 160mm tall CPU coolers. If you've got more storage in mind, there's also two front/top USB 3.0 ports.
EK Water Blocks is set on a path to become the best watercooling option around. Having taken some steps in this direction recently, this Ljubljana-based company has just announced its new DBAY D5 MX reservoirs and reservoir plus pump combinations.
The new MX series Dual Bay reservoirs are designed to slot into two 5.25" drive bay slots, allowing for more room within your case for crazy RAM, motherboard and video card combinations. Combined or purchased separately, EK suggests that users pick up its EK-D5 PWM pump motor in order to complete the set, further providing a locking ring nut and O-rings for this pump.
Released to the public in four variations, most ports are standard G1/4" threaded, with a single G3/8" threaded port on the top of the reservoir designed for filling only.
This style of cooler has been around for a while, but not always in the limelight. Could this resurgence be the thing that air cooling needs to win back the market over water, or is it just another crazy product that is designed to market the company in which manufactures it? Either way, it looks interesting.
Scythe has just pushed out a press release announcing the Fuma Twin-Tower CPU cooler, measuring in at 149mm tall and bundled with two 120mm PWM fans. If two isn't enough, there's also an option to throw a third fan into the mix for extra cooling power. Your CPU is cooled thanks to six copper heat pipes with a 6mm diameter, connected directly to a solid copper base plate for optimal heat transfer - with all of this has being nickel-plated.
Available right now for around $41.59, this kit will fit most Intel and AMD sockets ranging from FM2+ to LGA 1151 and 2011.
Corsair has just unveiled the availability of its new Hydro Series HG10 GPU N980 and HG10 N970 cooling brackets, which liquid cool your NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X, GTX 980 Ti, GTX 980 or GTX 970 video cards.
The new GPU coolers are designed to work with any stock PCB layout from the GTX Titan X, GTX 980 Ti, GTX 980 and GTX 970 where it will replace the stock air cooling on the video card with a new liquid GPU cooler. The bracket allows for a CPU cooler to be used (as you can see in the image above), directly onto the GPU.
The Corsair Hydro Series HG10 is capable of handling up to 250W of heat, so you could drastically lower the temperatures of your GPU, as well as the noise - all while providing more overclocking headroom. The HG10's aluminum bracket and integrated 70mm low-noise blower fan will actively cool your GPUs other heat-producing components. Corsair's Hydro Series HG10 cools your video card's memory and VRM, and not just the GPU.
PAX Australia 2015 - One of our first stops at InWin, where we checked out a bunch of their cases that always impress. Stuart Tonks spent a huge amount of time on every build for InWin, but the end result is great.
If I had to have a favorite, it would definitely be the 909 case from InWin, which was powered by Bitspower, ASUS and Avexir - and it looks freakin' incredible.
