25,300 x CableMod '12VHPWR' angled adapters recalled, they cause $74,000+ in property damage

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 12, 2024 8:01 PM CST

CableMod has had issues with its angled adapters melting, with a voluntary safety recall for its angled 12VHPWR adapters recently, but now HotHardware has discovered something new.

25,300 x CableMod '12VHPWR' angled adapters recalled, they cause $74,000+ in property damage

A new report on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website has a recall date of February 8 for CableMod's V1.0 and V1.1 angled adapters, with potential risks being fires and burn hazards if the male connector becomes loose. The recall has around 25,300 units involved, which is a large amount of cables plugged into gamers' expensive graphics cards.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that they've received 272 reports of adapters becoming loose, overheating and melting into the GPU, causing at least $74,500 in property damage claims in the United States.

Seasonic reveals VERTEX SAKURA Special Edition 1000W PSU: perfect for your high-end GPU

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 1, 2024 9:36 PM CST

Seasonic has just unleashed its brand new VERTEX SAKURA Edition PSU, the new VERTEX-GX-1000 power supply with ATX 3.0 compatibility and a native 12VHPWR power connector. Check it out:

Seasonic reveals VERTEX SAKURA Special Edition 1000W PSU: perfect for your high-end GPU

The company showed off its new VERTEX SAKURA Edition PSU in Japan, with full modularity, ATX 3.0 compatibility, and a native 12VHPWR power connector. You're looking at a price of around 30,000 yen (around $200 USD), and it should sell well in Japan, given it's a SAKURA Edition PSU.

Some of the staff store members said that they recommend pre-ordering the new Seasonic VERTEX SAKURA Edition power supply, as it will be in small quantities given it's a limited edition product. We don't know about availability in other markets just yet, but we should expect an announcement (and small quantities) soon.

Redditor passively cools GeForce RTX 3080 with 10 tower heatsinks, looks incredible

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 30, 2024 6:30 PM CST

This is something you don't see every day: a passively-cooled GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card with 10 x tower heatsinks taking care of cooling the graphics card.

Redditor passively cools GeForce RTX 3080 with 10 tower heatsinks, looks incredible

Redditor "Everynametaken9" has modified his NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition graphics card, where he wanted to passively cool the GPU in the most monstrous way. In this journey, the Redditor used absolutely massive amounts of metal to keep it cool, and it looks insane.

Everynametaken9 was inspired by the growing "passive cooling" wave, experimenting with 10 different cooling heatsinks on the GPU, testing the thermal dissipation with the goal of "zero noise". There were some heavy DIY modifications installed, including a massive copper heatsink with gigantic dimensions: 2" x 3" x 12" -- yeah, the heatsink is 12 inches long! -- and then all of the 10 x CPU heatsinks strapped to the RTX 3080 Founders Edition.

BLUETTI's new AC180T portable power station, MultiCooler with fridge, freezer, ice maker teased

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 16, 2024 7:02 PM CST

BLUETTI unveiled some new portable power solutions at CES 2024, with the introduction of the new AC180T and its new swappable and modular battery system... as well as the new MultiCooler, a new all-in-one fridge, freezer, and icemaker.

The new AC180T is similar to BLUETTI's existing AC180 power station, except it has dual removable battery packs with a capacity of around 717 watt-hours per battery. BLUETTI calls this technology "SwapSolar," which allows you to change battery packs if you need more energy capacity without having to buy another power station.

Inside, the hot-swappable lithium ion phosphate batteries can be rotated in and out of the machine without shutting it down, meaning you can keep your new BLUETTI AC180T power station on 24 hours a day.

Also pictured is Corsair's newest air cooler, the A115, which is equipped with two 140mm fans on Corsair's new Slide-and-Lock system, thus making it quite simple to install the fans. The A115 itself has six heat pipes attached to a high efficient cold plate able to dissipate up to 270 watts TDP. Compatible with LGA 1700 and AM5/AM4 sockets. Available now on the Corsair store for $99.99.

Up to nine 120mm or four 140mm fans can fit in the roof of the Corsair 2500X, bottom, and side mounts, along with the corresponding radiators.

EKWB shows off new innovative liquid cooling ideas at CES 2024 which it has been working on

Ryan Gendreau | Jan 15, 2024 8:57 PM CST

While we were at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada, EKWB showed off some innovative new products, specifically in the world of watercooling. The image above is what caught my eye when I first walked into the suite at Mandalay Bay. Housed in a 360mm radiator housing, a 240mm radiator and FLT pump are combined, making a quasi-closed but open loop; just add tubing, coolant, and a CPU or GPU block, and you are done. This product is still in development, so there is no ETA available.

Next are some new fittings, specifically a few new color choices to the already popular Quantum Torque line, flat/matte gray and bronze. These new colors offer a dulled finish, which aids in preventing fingerprints.

Next is more of a revision to the FLT Kinetic 3 line of flat reservoirs, now with different inlet and outlet ports and being offered in 140mm sizing. On the far right is a glimpse of the new EK-Quantum Velocity2 Edge D-RGB CPU water blocks. Available for mainstream CPU sockets, LGA1700, and AM5 in black and silver variants. These new CPU blocks resemble the ones from the era of the Supremacy EVO CPU water blocks.

Cooler Master showed new silent PSUs at CES 2024, including the X Silent Edge and X Silent Max

Ryan Gendreau | Jan 15, 2024 8:51 PM CST

Cooler Master, while at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, wanted to show off a few of its newest PSUs. Above is the GX III line of PSUs, the V SFX Platinum and Gold-rated ATX 3.0 PSUs, and a few white editions are sprinkled in.

Next up is the X Silent Edge, coming in at 1100w or 850w; this passive PSU is completely made to be a massive heatsink. Being a digital platform, Cooler Masters' MasterCTRL software allows the end-user to monitor temperature, current load, and overall performance via MCUs.

Next is the X Silent Max, with a rating of 1300w; this PSU is made to the ATX 3.1 specification. The silent part is largely due to the ultra-quiet Mobius fan that actively dissipates heat to support higher wattages while maintaining silent performance with an ambient noise level of only 20dB. The X Silent Max is also a digital platform and can be controlled via the Cooler MasterCTRL software.
