MSI tease its beautiful new Twin Frozr V cooler

Computex 2014 - While it's not much; over at the MSI booth we saw the company showing off the heat sink prototype for its next generation Twin Frozr cooler the Twin Frozr V. To the right you can see that it's going to be come in under the Gaming Series as you'd expect and use MSIs Propeller Blade Technology.

Looking in a bit closer we can see the massive heat sink that will sit over the core and what looks to be a total of six heat pipes coming out of the card. You can see based on this design it will of course be a dual fan setup and surely an improvement over the current Twin Frozr IV cooler. We can't deny, though, that the current Twin Frozr IV is one of the best VGA coolers on the market. It will be interesting to see just what kind of improvements the latest version brings to the table when released.

The 3500 and 3500W; a wide body variant both are ATX Mid Towers while the 2500 is a slimmer Mid-tower while the lineup is finished off with the 1500; a compact mini tower supporting mATX. Along with that line up; we also got a chance to check out the new Node 804 in it's very square design. Supporting both Micro-ATX and mITX; this very cool looking case is due to hit soon.

InWin's new H-Frame Mini is a true work of art, with water cooling

Computex 2014 - Last week, we had the pleasure of checking out the In Win factory, where the company makes a massive one million computer cases per month. Once Computex kicked off, we showed you the awesome S-Frame and D-Frame Mini cases, but now we have something a little different, the H-Frame Mini. There's a video overview below, and some more details and pictures below.

Inside of the In Win we have a Core i5 processor from Intel, water cooled with EK Components' goodies, ASUS ROG Maximus VI Impact miniITX motherboard, 8GB of Corsair's Dominator GT RAM, two USB 3.0 ports up front, and Intel's 530 Series 120GB SSD. All in all, it's a work of art, something that really stops you in your tracks when walking through the halls of Nangang.

BitFenix's ATLAS case is gigantic, but beautiful

Computex 2014 - Something that BitFenix was showing off at Computex this year was the absolutely huge, but undeniably gorgeous ATLAS chassis. It is massive, capable of taking 10 x 3.5-inch HDDs, and 6 x 2.5-inch drives for a total of sixteen HDDs - yes, 16!

 

 

TweakTown image bitfenix_s_atlas_case_is_gigantic_but_beautifulTweakTown image bitfenix_s_atlas_case_is_gigantic_but_beautiful

 

Cooling wise, it can take 20 fans in total, with 6 up the front, 6 at the top, 6 at the bottom and 2 at the rear - all 120mm. When we talk dimensions, it begins to get quite huge - with 383 x 443 x 541mm. It's not for the faint hearted, but you might as well live life on the edge, right? BitFenix told us that this isn't the final design of the ATLAS, with the final design most likely being a bit smaller than what we saw on the show floor.

In Win's new S-Frame case, an incredible work of art at $799

Computex 2014: When we were on our factory tour of In Win, they showed us the incredible new S-Frame chassis. The S-Frame chassis is built-in painstaking detail, so don't expect many of them to be in the wild - with just 500 units being constructed in the first batch.

 

 

After those 500 have been made, we'll have to wait and see if In Win make anymore, and if they do, there'll only be 50 made per month. At $799, they're not for everyone, but there are definitely going to be people lining up to be one of those first 500, that's for sure. It definitely is a thing of beauty, so take a look at the photos and video we have on In Win's new S-Frame chassis.

be quiet! shows off their new cooling products

Computex 2014: We stopped by be quiet!'s suite at Computex to take a look at their latest and greatest cooling products and even a new power supply and case.

 

TweakTown image news/3/8/38174_01_be_quiet_shows_off_their_new_cooling_products.jpg

 

I bet you didn't notice, but this model is holding the cooler incorrectly. Personally, I think she can hold it however she wants. This is the Dark Rock Pro 3 cooler, one of the leading coolers on the market that can easily handle a whopping 250 TDP.

 

TweakTown image news/3/8/38174_02_be_quiet_shows_off_their_new_cooling_products.png

 

We have a more in-depth look at the new line of be quiet! products, but some pictures just have to be shared. Feel free to check out the latest and greatest from be quiet!, including a video interview, at this link.

be Quiet! has a trio of new products, we capture them all

Computex 2014: Yesterday we had the pleasure of sitting down with be Quiet! to see the company's latest products. On the list were a new quiet yet powerful power supply, CPU cooler and an unnamed case that is sure to garner some attention.

 

 

TweakTown image news/3/8/38170_01_be_quiet_has_a_trio_of_new_products_we_capture_them_all.png

 

Starting out the video, we see the new Pure Rock, a low cost, high performance CPU cooler that looks amazing yet has a low MSRP. From there we move to the Straight Power 10 Series PSU.

 

 

 

One of the most exciting products be Quiet! displayed with a new case that is currently without a product name. Also with a very low MSRP but high on features, the new case is a living testament to be Quiet's ability to deliver innovative products.

Corsair enters the GPU watercooling game with its Hydro Series HG10

Computex 2014 - Corsair unveiled something that I've been asking from them for a while now, watercooling for your GPU. Enter the new Hydro Series HG10 GPU liquid cooling bracket, which for now is demoing on the AMD Radeon R9 290X GPU.

TweakTown image corsair_enters_the_gpu_watercooling_game_with_its_hydro_series_hg10TweakTown image corsair_enters_the_gpu_watercooling_game_with_its_hydro_series_hg10

 

The Hydro Series HG10 is a full GPU, VRAM and VRM cooling solution with near silent operation, and is compatible with all Hydro Series CPU liquid coolers, too. When comparing a stock cooled Radeon R9 290X which was running at a massively hot 94C, the HG10 was running at a much cooler 77%. You'll also notice that the fan speed is only cranking along at 20%, compared to the stock R9 290X at 47%.
