  • Arctic releases new line of AIO coolers


    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/ar...ler,40579.html




     




    Arctic has announced their new line of liquid coolers in 120, 240, 280, and 360mm flavors today.




     




    The waterblock has a small 40mm fan to cool surrounding motherboard components. This will help VRM cooling, especially when other competing AIO's have a problem with airflow in this area.

    Most notably, however, the CPU block comes with a small 40mm fan, which will provide some airflow to the components surrounding the CPU socket. This fan can spin at speeds between 1000 and 3000 RPM through PWM control.

    The main 120mm or 140mm fans on the unit come with PWM control, which allows them to run at speeds down to just 200 RPM, and all the way up to 1800 RPM when required. Arctic claims that the Liquid Freezer II series liquid CPU coolers produce about 0.3 Sone of noise, which translates to a dBA rating between 22.5 and 24.5 dBA. We’re still not sure why Arctic continues to rate its hardware in Sone levels in a market that almost exclusively measures sound levels in decibels.






     




    Here's an early review of the thing by KitGuru: https://www.kitguru.net/components/c...oler-review/2/




     




    Results show that the cooler is very effective, beating Thermaltake's 360mm AIO when competing in the 240mm flavor.








     




    In case people are concerned about the small 40mm fan making too much noise, the cooler actually is one of the quietist (is that a word?) coolers in the competition:

    • Nationwide ban of Galaxy S10 Fingerprint Reader - fingerprint log in removed from banking app
      by Dudicrous
      Related to the recent security flaw found with the Galaxy S/Note 10 series, which you can read more about below 





      Banks in the UK have decided that the flaw with the fingerprint reader is too much of a compromise for its customers and have started removing the fingerprint option for the app. 




      At the moment it's just Nationwide and Natwest that have done so, but I wouldn't be surprised if others followed suit.

    • Intel Xe GPU release date, specs, and performance
      by Dudicrous
      The Intel Xe GPU represents Intel’s first foray into discrete graphics since the ill-fated Larrabee project many years ago. But let’s not dwell on the past, this is a bright new future for Intel, and potentially PC gamers too, as it means we’re going to have a genuine third player in the graphics market and that can only be a good thing. For us, at least.
      • It looks likely that the initial Xe GPUs will largely be based on the building blocks put in place by the Ice Lake Gen11 graphics architect

    • Verizon can't cover a basketball stadium with 5G
      by Dudicrous


      Quote





      Verizon on Friday announced that its 5G network is now available in three NBA arenas and is coming to seven more by the end of the 2019-2020 basketball season. But there's a big caveat, just like there is with Verizon's 5G coverage in NFL stadiums: Verizon 5G only covers some of the seating areas.

      TeamSpeak, one of the most popular voice communication apps for gaming before Discord came along and took over the world, is returning with a new look. The team behind the software has kicked off a closed beta for a completely new application that does away with the old school setup for something that will obviously be compared to what Discord offers.
