Continuing its recent focus on premium grade cooling components for compact systems such as ITX based gaming or Home Theater PCs, Noctua today released its new NH-L9x65 low-profile cooler and a 4-pin PWM version of its popular NF-A6x25 60mm fan. While the latter adds PWM support for automatic speed control to the proven NF-A6x25 design, the NH-L9x65 is a taller, performance-enhanced version of Noctua’s award-winning NH-L9 low-profile coolers.
SilverStone has just introduced two new CPU coolers into their Argon series, the AR05 and AR06. Both models are low-profiles coolers, but the AR06 is the taller of the two at 58 mm tall. It features four 6 mm heatpipes and a 92 mm rifle bearing fan.
Thermalright has now showed off its latest heat-dispersing creation, the HTPC-friendly AXP-200 CPU cooler. It is basically designed for low profile desktop systems. It is capable of greatly enhanced airflow and surface for heat dissipitation.
Last year Noctua released their NH-L9 series low profile CPU coolers. They were extremely small (37mm) and offered some pretty good cooling as well. Noctua is back with a new low profile cooler that they were showing at Computex. This cooler is just a little bit bigger at 65mm high, but still will fit in compact systems pretty easily.
Xigmatek carries on to initiate once again this time taking on Janus to be the name which hopefully would be heard for many years to come in the CPU cooling industry. Yes you got that right. Xigmatek has just introduced their low profile CPU cooler. This amazing machine is considered to be the world’s thinnest low profile coolers, varying at an incredible height of 60mm which can actually fit anywhere.
Not that long ago we took a look at Crucial’s Ballistix Tactical Low Profile memory. Today we are checking out the Ballistix Sport Low Profile memory. Both of these memory kits solve the dilemma of an aftermarket CPU cooler covering up your memory slots. This kit is a low profile kit meaning it is going to fit below most aftermarket CPU coolers and be out of the way. There are not that many choices when it comes to low profile memory so that fact that Crucial is offering their Ballistix line in low profile versions is great. The memory we are taking a look at today is the 16GB (8GB x 2) kit running with timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.35v (BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0). Read on as we check out this memory!
When it comes to performance memory there are quite a few choices. The one thing you always want to consider is the actual height of the modules. Many aftermarket CPU coolers actually may cover the memory slots on your motherboard. This means you could be limited to what memory you can use. This has actually been a problem for quite a while now. The only real solution was to go with a watercooling setup, but many people do not want to deal with that. Crucial has finally solved the problem by releasing Low Profile versions of both their Ballistix Tactical and Ballistix Sport memory. Today we are taking a look at the Ballistix Tactical LP memory, more specifically the BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0 kit. It is a 16GB kit running at 1600MHz with timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.35v. Let’s take a look!
Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced the immediate availability of Crucial Ballistix Low Profile (LP) memory, which delivers a true low profile design to provide more clearance around high-end CPU coolers and improve airflow throughout the system. Designed for performance enthusiasts and small form factor computer builders with limited space, Crucial Ballistix LP memory features all the performance benefits of Ballistix memory without the height concerns of taller modules.
