Noctua-NH-D15-2
Hardware

I normally do not cover P.Rs but this one deserves an exception I think. To the well experienced hand, Noctua coolers have something of a legacy. These coolers use an extremely minimalistic design and delivered top notch performance on Air, all the while remaining surprisingly silent. One such cooler was the NH-D14 which is now nothing less than a legend in the air cooler hall of fame. It took Noctua three full years to develop a worthy successor to the NH-D14; the NH-D15, which debuts with a six year warranty. And it goes without saying that it has very big shoes to fill.

NH-D14 succeeded by the Noctua NH-D15 Dual Tower Air Cooler

I will begin with the differences between the NH-D14 and NH-D15. The heatpipe count remains the same, i.e. six. The finstack is now wider by 10mm which corresponds to a total of 150mm. Height and width are 165mm and 135mm respectively, each having received a 5mm increase. The fins on the lower side have receded and now give 64mm clearance in single fan mode. Nf-A15 PWM fans are added with a range of maximum 1200 rpm or 1500rpm depending on the PWM controller or LNA. Here is what the CEO of Noctua had to say:

After ripping the PlayStation 4 apart and getting familiar with the hardware composition of the system, here comes the Xbox One teardown. Xbox One teardown shows that the console is build more like a PC from the inside, with every component being separately placed at a fixed location in the metal case. The console build up is a bit different than that of PlayStation 4.

Xbox One Teardown Reveals A Huge Cooling Fan And A Replaceable Hard Drive

Xbox One is a huge box apparently made with keeping a very little concept of style in mind; On the other hand we have PlayStation 4, a fairly slim and sleek and rather a styled console. Both the consoles pack some powerful hardware and to have a look at the inside components of the Xbox One, iFixit have taken the console piece by piece just like PlayStation4.

A PlayStation 4 user who got his console on the launch date decided to take some infrared shots of it to check how stable is the PlayStation 4 heat regulation. The images capture the temperature of PlayStation 4 placed at different positions and performing different tasks.

Have A Look At These Thermal Images To See How Stable Is PlayStation 4 Heat Regulation

Overheating is one of the scariest nightmares for electronic industries. It causes many troubles in the development and manufacturing of electronic problem. Gamers from any platform are well aware of the unpleasant effects of overheating. Console gamers are also really concerned about the problem when it comes to all-day-long gaming because whether it is a PC or any of the consoles available in the market, overheating can cause some major damage.

Apparently the only thing that console gamers care about for now are the next-gen consoles and with PlayStation 4 already launched, tons of reports about the merits and demerits of the console are coming in. To check the how true the PlayStation 4 overheating reports really are, a user took out his thermal camera to put PlayStation 4 heat regulation on test.

iChill GTX 780 Accelero Hybrid
Hardware

The GTX 780 along with the GTX Titan are Nvidias Flasghip Graphic Cards, and for good reason. The 780 is basically a cut down version of GTX Titan and the GTX Titan is, well the GTX Titan. Recently Inno3D Announced Two GTX 780s. Though we were expecting the iChill GTX 780 HerculeZ 3000 x3 Ultra (wow that’s a mouthful) the iChill GTX 780 Accelero Hybrid came as a very welcome and pleasant surprise. Both of iChill’s GTX 780 are factory over clocked and will be one of the most powerful Single-Chip gaming solutions available.  In fact Inno3D claims these beauties will be faster than a stock GTX Titan!

Featuring a Hybrid Air and Watercooling solution this beast of a Graphics card will offer nearly Half the temperatures compared to stick GTX 780 and almost negligible sound output, whil at the same time giving highly stable factory over clocked performance, though at these low temps, Gaming enthusiasts could attempt to further over clock.

iChill GTX Titan Accelero Hybrid

We already got the word that NVIDIA gave the greenligt to their AIB partners to manufactuer their custom variants of the recently released GeForce GTX Titan GPU. Computerbase over at the CeBIT 2013 have unveiled that Inno3D could possibly be the first to offer a fully custom version of the GeForce GTX Titan GPU with their latest creation, the iChill GTX Titan Accelero Hybrid.

Inno3D Offers Monstrous Cooling WIth iChill GTX Titan Accelero Hybrid

Inno3D’s iChill GTX Titan Accelero Hybrid uses the same ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid cooler that has been available and fits on the Radeon HD 7970 and GeForce GTX 680 flagship GPUs. ARCTIC has now added further compatibility of their cooling solution to the GeForce GTX Titan and hence Inno3D which have a partnership with ARCTIC in offering GPUs with their cooler under the iChill branding have released the iChill GTX Titan Accelero Hybrid.

Not much has changed design wise with the iChill GTX Titan Accelero Hybrid, it uses the reference design heatsink with just a ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid cooler strapped on top of the GK110 core except that this wasn’t possible with the GeForce GTX 690 since NVIDIA didn’t allow it. The GeForce GTX Titan reference model which looks alot like the GTX 690 and costs a hefty $1000 has been given the greenlight to be custom made by AIBs which is a good thing but these custom models would just keep adding on the cost for an already expensive yet awesome GPU.

It was also revealed that the iChill GTX Titan Accelero Hybrid is a factory overclocked model since the Accelero Hybrid cooler offers great cooling performance to the GPU itself but Inno3D didn’t mention them yet. It could be possible that the clock speeds (reference 837/876 MHz) can be clocked at around 950/1000 MHz mark given the cost of the cooler and the GPU itself. Inno3d didn’t mention pricing nor availability of the iChill GTX Titan Accelero Hybrid.
