EVGA announces new trio of 1000W, 850W and 750W 80 Plus Titanium PSUs

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jan 13, 2016 11:46 am

EVGA has expanded its flagship SuperNOVA T2 lineup of premium power supplies with a trio of enthusiast-grade PSUs stamped with the covered 80 Plus Titanium rating.

 

 

EVGA has brought us a ton of high-performance hardware in the past, including a fleet of ultra-fast OC NVIDIA GTX 980 Ti video cards, but now the hardware-maker aims to make its mark in the field of power supplies with its new triumvirate of ultra-efficient PSUs. Today the company's SuperNOVA T2 line gets three new contenders: a titanic 1000W flavor followed up with 850W and 750W variants for less-extreme rigs.

 

As the company says, "nothing beats titanium", and all three power supplies boast an amazing 90% efficiency under full workloads and 94% under half loads. Although the T2 1000W, T2 850W and T2 750W all feature extremely reliable Japanese Nippon Chemi-Con Solid State Capcitors, EVGA backs each PSU with a 10 year warranty.

Featuring an extremely reflective glass surface, Phanteks' new case features tinted and tempered glass side panels on both sides of the chassis, as reported by Tech Power Up recently. The spectacular side panels are secured through the help of thumb screws and feature this glass material from top to bottom.

 

With the rest of the chassis being identical to the regular Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX spec sheet, expect this new model to hit the shelves in March, priced at $190.

Cooler Master shows off the future of water cooling at CES

By: Jeff Williams | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jan 13, 2016 2:00 am

CES 2016 - Cooler Master is consolidating their product lines and changing their focus, and that also includes their CPU cooling products as well. At CES they were showing us the new AIO water coolers that they'll be bringing to market as part of their new "Make it Yours" initiative. They also had a new slick looking custom water loop kit and a new air cooler to take a look at.

Despite the small debacle with the patents that might have prevented the sale of the older, and quite effective older series of coolers, they've actually been working on a new design well before that, which was debuted here in their suite at CES. The pump is updated and improved, so coil whine should definitely not be a problem anymore.

 

There'll be 120mm and 140mm wide selections with up to 280mm in total length as well. If the Nepton series is any indication, then the actual cooling performance should hopefully be similar. And that means it'll be near class leading.

In Win puts an infinity mirror on the 805, with other improvements too

By: Jeff Williams | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jan 10, 2016 7:40 pm

In Win is always looking to innovate and find new ways to dazzle their customers with new things. That thinking extends to products already in the market too.

At CES this year they brought the ubiquitous 805, but with a few new changes instead. In place of the normal front panel, they put on a an infinity mirror complete with RGB lights on the inside. It's more than appropriate for the particular Las Vegas flavor, and it's not really too garish either. It's only a few cm deep, but the effect is really well done.

 

The infinity lighting is controlled by the ASUS RGB motherboard and can have any number of different patterns and colors. The case on display was simply revolving around the color wheel. It's a prototype and they're just looking for feedback on the design to see if it's something that they might implement in future designs, or even as an add-on later. They've also added metal extensions on the bottom of the case that hold the tempered glass side-panels in, so they don't fall so easily when you remove them.

In Win's H-Frame 2.0 is sublime, comes with a 1065W power supply

By: Jeff Williams | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jan 10, 2016 6:37 am

CES 2016 - We went eyes-on with the new Inwin H-Frame 2.0 case at CES, and it's a magnificent beast that needs to be experienced to truly understand it.

The new case is leagues better than the old case, and it's also Inwin's 30th anniversary, which means there's extra flair, though again it's in-line with the motif and not at all gaudy or out of place. It's monstrous when you step up to it, with a monolithic and ominous air that makes it seem like a monument. A monument to PC gaming, of course. But the cool orange lights are not out of place, nor are they too bright, but almost beckon you to take a look behind the tempered glass.

 

And inside is a vast landscape that's capable of holding nearly anything you could dream of. It's spacious with what looks like plenty of room to work in as well. But that's only part of why you'd ever buy this case. This is a unique and gorgeous case, a work of art that can't compare to very many other chassis' that exist out there. It's that uniqueness that draws you to it, and In Win is a master at crafting such beautiful cases.

Deepcool's new Genome case sports built-in liquid cooling

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jan 8, 2016 8:48 pm

CES 2016 - Deepcool's new Genome case combines the spacious utility of a performance PC chassis with a complete AIO closed-loop cooling system.

 

 

Set in a mid-tower form factor, the Genome case sports an integrated AIO closed-loop CPU liquid cooling system that works in tandem with a fan array to maintain excellent heat processing in ATX PC builds. The cooling system rocks a 360mm radiator equipped with 3x LED-lit PWM fans, and the liquid cooling solution is held in a wicked T-Virus-esque helix spiral surrounded by a glass tube.

 

The case can fit video cards up to 300mm in length and supports 2X SLI, and measures 506mm x 210mm x 510mm with a hefty weight of 21.5 pounds. It features a 120mm exhaust fan, 20mm radiators on the front and rear, 1x 120mm fan at 7x expansion cards, 4x 2.5" SSD drive bays and 2x 3.5" HDD bays and doesn't accommodate 5.5" drives.

be quiet! teases they will have an AIO watercooler in the near future

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jan 8, 2016 8:24 pm

CES 2016 - Our last meeting of the day for day one of CES 2016 was with German cooling giant be quiet!, where we took a look around their suite at their current array of products.

 

 

There's not much new to show, but what we did find out was that be quiet! is working on an AIO watercooler - in the same vein as Corsair's Hydro series coolers - and that it'll be shown off towards the end of the year, with it hopefully in full form at CES 2017 next year.

 

This will be quite exciting, as be quiet! said it would be "extremely quiet" - so I'm guessing we won't hear the pump noise that we are all used to on other AIO coolers.

Illuminate your PC chassis with Enermax's new LED-bladed DIY case fans

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jan 8, 2016 5:34 pm

CES 2016 - Enermax has just unveiled a new duo of DIY case fans aimed at merging high-performance cooling with stylish lighting, adding a bit of futuristic flair to PC builds.

 

illuminate-pc-chassis-enermaxs-new-led-bladed-case-fans_1

 

Enermax's new case fans consist of the D.F. Pressure and D.F. Vegas models, and represent a "giant leap forward" in chassis fan design. Both models utilize a combination of existing designs including Dust-Free Rotation, which allows the fan to spin in reverse for a small period upon system start up. Using DFR tech, Enermax's new fans are able to "greatly reduces the dust of the internal PC system or the fan blade".

 

The D.F. Pressure model is based on Enermax's existing TwisterPressure series and sports a static pressure of 3.845mm-H20. Adjustable Peak Speed PWM side controls ensure safety and easy cleaning.

This chassis is built solely around video card performance

By: Chris Smith | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Jan 7, 2016 10:31 pm

CES 2016 - Wrapping up some crazy announcements for EVGA in Las Vegas this year is its new 'Gaming Case', joining the 4K Gaming laptop, gamer and audiophile sound card and quick release CPU and video card closed loop coolers as part of a stellar press release.

 

chassis-built-solely-around-video-card-performance_082

 

Once again EVGA says that this product hasn't gotten an official name just yet, but promises that it's the "first PC gaming case designed for GPU cooling," aiming to keep your pride and joy components nice and cool. Boasting direct airflow pathing sent directly to the video card itself, this case has been "Specifically designed for extreme gaming enthusiast[s]."

 

The chassis contains a flexible cooling design for air or water applications and a modular design system - possibly similar to the CoolerMaster Master case. Unfortunately, this is all we know right now, stay tuned for updates.
