Lian Li LANCOOL 216 has air and watercooling mode

2 weeks ago
Lian Li adds a new medium budget case, the LANCOOL 216. This model stands out because it offers a water cooling and air cooling mode -- the position of the motherboard can be adjusted to optimize the case. Out of the box, the case comes with three pre-installed PWM fans, including two large 160mm fans and a 140mm one. Lian Li offers the LANCOOL 216 base model only in black, with a MSRP of $99.99. There is also a variant with RGB LED illumination for $109.99, that version also ships in a white edition for $114.99.

LANCOOL 216
LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of chassis and PC accessories, announces the LANCOOL 216, an airflow focused case. Pre-installed with two 160mm and one 140mm PWM fan, the LANCOOL 216 offers great out-of-box performance and can be configured from air cooling to AIO cooling mode by lowering/raising the motherboard position. To help balance the case airflow and provide better GPU cooling, the Lancool 216 includes an external PCIe fan bracket that supports a 120mm fan to be mounted on the rear panel, in front of the expansion slots. The LANCOOL 216 is available in black with non-RGB front fans, and in black or white with addressable RGB front fans.

Air Cooling Mode & Water Cooling Mode
To ensure plenty of air is passed through, the LANCOOL 216 features a continuous front-to-top fine mesh panel and a PSU shroud side mesh panel. Paired with 2 x 160mm and 1 x 140mm pre-installed PWM fans, the LANCOOL 216 ensures great out-of-box performance. For air cooling solutions, the LANCOOL 216’s rear I/O can be flipped and the motherboard standoffs set higher in the main chamber to allow up to 2 x 140mm fans above the PSU shroud and at the top of the case. In water-cooling mode, with a motherboard in a lower position, the top of the case can be fitted with up to a 360mm radiator for AIO or custom water-cooling loop design.

Additional Airflow
In addition to the 140mm fan pre-installed at the rear of the case, the LANCOOL 216 also supports an additional 120mm fan behind the expansion slots. The included PCIe fan bracket accessory can be used in air-cooling mode in conjunction with horizontal GPUs at the 1st expansion slot, or with vertical GPU closer to the motherboard without obstructing the GPU I/O while providing better cooling for the GPU and a greater intake/exhaust balance for the system.

Easy to Build & Easier Access
The removable top radiator bracket opens the case to simplify the installation of hardware in the main chamber. In the second chamber, 5 velcro straps, clips, and tie points provide clear routing options for cable management. Lastly, the drive cage in the PSU shroud compartment, which can be moved to accommodate front-mounted radiator/fan combos, supports the mounting of 3.5” HDDs and 2.5” SSDs simultaneously on both of its trays. The front panel I/O module can be moved to the lower left side of the front panel for easier access when the case is set on a table.

Optional ARGB Front I/O Accessory
To provide greater control of the light effects on the LANCOOL 216 RGB front fans, an additional ARGB front I/O accessory, the ARGB control & USB module, can be installed at the lower side of the front panel. The additional I/O lets users control the two addressable LEDs channels (opening rim and fan blade shaft) individually to create custom styles. The ARGB control & USB module additional accessory is available in black and white at an MSRP of $13.99.

The LANCOOL 216 Black, Black RGB, and White RGB are available for pre-order at Newegg starting November 11th, 2022, and at Caseking.de and Overclockers.co.uk starting November 21st, 2022.

Noctua expands portfolio with inlet spacers and gasket sets

2 weeks ago
Two new accessories from Noctua; the firm has added the NA-IS1 inlet spacers and the NA-SAVG2 gasket set to its product portfolio. The first is aimed at reducing influx turbulence in situations where a fan draws air through obstacles such as perforated plates, mesh panels, filters, or radiations. The gasket set is aimed at getting a tighter seal with the fan, for example for cooling radiators.

Recommended retail pricing is 14.90EUR ($14.90) for the NA-IS1 and 9.90EUR ($9.90) for the NA-SAVG2.

NA-IS1 inlet spacers NA-SAVG2 gasket set
Noctua today introduced its new NA-IS1 intake side spacer frames for suction or “pull” type applications where fans draw air through obstacles such as grills, perforated plates, mesh panels, filters or radiators. By offsetting the fan from the obstacle, the NA-IS1 can significantly reduce influx turbulences and thereby help to improve both acoustics and performance. In addition, Noctua also introduced the NA-SAVG2 anti-vibration gasket set for using 140mm fans on water cooling radiators or other applications that benefit from a tighter seal with the fan.

“Intake applications where fans draw air through obstacles such as grills or perforated panels are notoriously challenging both from an aerodynamic and from an acoustic point of view due to the massive turbulences that are caused by these objects”, explains Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “These influx turbulences can have a significant impact on fan acoustics and performance, so we have created the NA-IS1 spacer frames that give customers a simple yet highly effective solution to reduce these turbulences and thereby make fans more efficient in suction type applications.”

Introducing a 5mm off-set between the fan and the obstacle, the NA-IS1 spacers can reduce influx turbulences significantly, which not only improves acoustics but also helps fans to operate more efficiently from an airflow performance point of view because the fan blades are less hampered by turbulence. In many suction type applications, using inlet spacers can therefore enable fans to achieve higher flow rates and lower noise emissions at the same time.

For example, in controlled testing on a perforated panel with a typical circular hole pattern, the tested 140 and 120mm fans showed an average reduction in noise levels of around 2dB(A) and an average increase in flow rate of around 4.4m³/h. While the results will vary between different fans models and applications depending on factors such as the exact shape and structure of the obstacle, fan speed and flow resistance, the improvements are significant in most cases.

Available in 14cm (NA-IS1-14 Sx2) and 12cm (NA-IS1-12 Sx2) sizes, the NA-IS1 are compatible with all current square-frame Noctua 120x25mm and 140x25mm models. Designed to replace the fans’ stock NA-AVP1 anti-vibration pads , the spacer frames are extremely straightforward to install: For case fan applications, either the supplied self-tapping screws or the included NA-AV3 anti-vibration mounts can be used to sandwich the spacer between the fan and the case panel. For radiator mounting, both M3 and UNC 6-32 screws are supplied. Each set includes two spacer frames plus the matching anti-vibration mounts, fan screws and radiator screws.

In sum, the NA-IS1 inlet spacers are a simple yet highly effective fine-tuning measure for suction type applications where a reduction of influx turbulence can lead to improved airflow and acoustics. The chromax.black variants are a perfect match for black chromax or industrialPPC line fans.

In addition to the NA-IS1 inlet spacers, Noctua also introduced the new NA-AVG2 anti-vibration gasket for using 140mm fans on water cooling radiators or other applications that benefit from a tighter seal with the fan. Like the NA-AVG1 for 120mm fans, the NA-AVG2 is made from extra soft yet highly tear-proof silicone rubber and helps to dampen minute vibrations as well as to reduce air loss between the fan and the radiator. As such, it is an ideal accessory for performance enthusiasts who want to squeeze out those extra few percent of cooling efficiency. The NA-SAVG2 set contains three NA-AVG2 gaskets.

SL120 V2 and SL140 V2
LIAN LI Industrial Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of chassis and PC accessories, announces the newly improved UNI FAN SL120 V2 and SL140 V2, both available in black and in white. The new UNI FAN SL V2 now offers the ability to daisy chain up to two clusters to a single hub port. With a 28mm thick frame, the SL120 V2 brings a 10% increase in airflow performance when compared to the V1. Additional updates to the V2 includes a single power module cable that sits flush with the fan frame as well as a removable interlocking key for improved compatibility with radiator fittings. The UNI FAN SL V2 also comes with a few updates to the L-Connect 3 software such as new merging lighting effects and the ability to control fan speed profiles with real-time RPM values. The UNI FAN SL120 V2 and SL140 V2 are available in single packs, with the SL120 V2 also available in a triple pack including the controller.

Better & Fewer Cables
The UNI FAN SL V2 can daisy chain up to 6 fans in 2 clusters to a single hub port, thanks to a new bridging cable included in the 3-pack. The new daisy-chaining solution reduces the number of cables needed to power 2 clusters and enables new lighting effects to be continuous between the two bridged clusters. In addition, the connection between the cluster and the controller is now a single slim cable that combines PWM and ARGB signal power. The same cable features a redesigned connector at the fan frame with a header that sits within the fan to create a seamless and flexible connection for the best aesthetic possible.

Improved Performance
The UNI FAN SL120 V2 features a thicker 28mm frame resulting in a 10% increase in airflow performance when compared to the SL120 V1. With speeds ranging from 0, 250 to 2000 RPM, the SL V2 can achieve 2.59 mmH2O of static pressure and 64.5 CFM of airflow at low noise levels of 29.2 dBA max. With the SL140 V2, users can achieve speeds of 0, 250-1600 RPM with a static pressure of 2.09 mmH2O, an airflow of 77.6 CFM, and noise levels of 29 dBA max.

L-Connect 3 Improvements
The UNI FAN SL V2 comes with a few improvements to L-Connect 3. Starting with the SL V2 page, 4 new lighting effects and 5 new merge-lighting effects are available. On the setting page, users have the ability to configure their merged clusters. From there, they can select the number of fans bridged together, rename the clusters and re-arrange the order for the new merging light effects to look continuous in the computer case. Lastly, on the Fan/Pump Profile page, the fan curve diagram has been modified to set values in real-time RPM speed instead of percentage for a more intuitive fan speed profile.

CHERRY MX Black Clear-Top ships in 2023 -- the new Nixie switch

3 weeks ago
CHERRY reveals its CHERRY MX Black Clear-Top switch. This is a remade version of the Nixdorf "Nixie" switch that was produced in the 1980s.

CHERRY MX Black Clear-Top
CHERRY MX, the market leader and expert for mechanical switches in keyboards, unveils the MX Black Clear-Top, a new edition of a switch that was produced in the 1980s and is known in the community as "Nixie". Due to the characteristic exterior and the smooth switching feel with rich acoustics, this variant is considered an insider tip for fans of linear MX switches. Since the switch, which was specially manufactured for Nixdorf Computer AG at the time, was only produced for a few years, the original "Nixie" is highly sought after and is only available second-hand or can be found as an expensive rarity on various sales platforms. The now-introduced MX Black Clear-Top follows in the footsteps of this legend but is optimized by current manufacturing processes and materials. In addition, there are two different variants to cover the diverse needs of DIY enthusiasts and the switch community: one with first-class high-performance lubricant in perfect dosage, which was applied in a high-precision, automated process, and one without pre-lubrication.

CHERRY MX Black Clear-Top - the new edition of the "Nixie"
The community name “Nixie” originates from a variant of the classic MX Black, which was specially adapted to the wishes of the former German company Nixdorf Computer AG: The requirement was a milky upper part of the housing, an increase in the actuating force from 60 to 63.5 centinewtons, as well as the relatively rare solution at the time of having a diode integrated into the switch for n-key rollover, or NKRO for short. The switch was mainly found in the "Nixdorf CT06-CT07/2 M Softkeys" keyboards for use on minicomputers, servers, or terminals. The production of these customer switches took place at CHERRY until the end of the 1980s, which makes the Nixie switch an absolute rarity these days, and even used ones are rarely found.

The switch was highly praised among enthusiasts, especially for its smooth, linear typing feel and rich acoustics. In combination with the scarce availability, the "Nixie" is considered an MX variant that has enjoyed high esteem in the community for years and is traded at high prices. Optimizations according to today's MX standards

With the official and new MX Black Clear-Top, CHERRY MX responds to the community demand that has existed for years and relaunches the iconic switch under a different product name to highlight the enhancements. During the design and manufacturing process, care was taken to ensure that the MX Black Clear-Top retains the features of the original while also incorporating all of the modern production optimizations to elevate the switch to today's industry-leading MX standard.

That's why the MX Black Clear-Top still features the familiar milky top housing, black bottom housing, and a black stem. The linear switching characteristic features an actuation force of 63.5 centinewtons, a pre-travel of 2 millimeters, and a total travel of 4 millimeters. The vintage design was also retained for the spring, which is why it features a gold-colored stainless-steel variant.

The MX Black Clear-Top is thus suitable for retro fans, frequent typists, gamers, and users who value a linear, direct switching characteristic paired with decent acoustics.

The CHERRY MX Black Clear-Top is offered exclusively as a 5-pin version with fixing pins for the printed circuit board (PCB). There will be a choice between a version with and without factory-applied lubricant. The former contains high-performance lubricant at selected points within the switch, explicitly applied and with high precision in ideal doses using an automated process. This ensures even lower-friction actuation with optimized acoustics without negatively affecting the typing feel or lifetime. In terms of ingredients and qualities, the applied lubricant corresponds to the community favorite KRYTOX GPL 205 GRADE 0, which guarantees reliable long-term lubrication. So, if you prefer a consistently high-quality lubricant and don't want to modify yourself further, this solution is the ideal choice.

The CHERRY MX Black Clear-Top version without factory-applied lubricant is intended to give enthusiasts maximum freedom in customization and the opportunity to modify the switches according to their preferences.

Unrivaled contact system
Of course, the CHERRY MX Black Clear-Top is also manufactured exclusively in the German factory in Auerbach and subjected to continuous quality controls to meet the premium standard set by the company itself, even over high volumes.

As typical for MX switches, the MX Black Clear-Top also features the world's exclusive, unrivaled Gold Crosspoint contact system for reliable, precise key inputs. As a result, the maximum number of actuations for the MX Black Clear-Top is guaranteed to be well over 50 million - without any loss of input quality. The Gold Crosspoint system is characterized by a thick gold layer on the two contacts, which are robustly and securely connected to the carrier plates by a high-precision welding process. With the particular bending radii, a bounce time of typically less than 1 millisecond is also guaranteed, resulting in the fastest response times.

Availability from the beginning of 2023
The CHERRY MX Black Clear-Top is expected to be available from all official distributors worldwide from the beginning of 2023.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 launches October 12 for $1,599

2 months ago
NVDA logo
The biggest computer news of the day definitely concerns the launch of NVIDIA's Ada Lovelace GPU family. Over at the GTC, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang showcased the first GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs. The RTX 4090 will be the first to hit the market, it will ship on October 12 for $1,599. The RTX 4080 will follow in November, in 12GB and 16GB configurations, for $899 and $1,199, respectively. NVIDIA claims the RTX 40 series will deliver massive performance gains:

INTC logo
NVIDIA today unveiled the GeForce RTX® 40 Series of GPUs, designed to deliver revolutionary performance for gamers and creators, led by its new flagship, the RTX 4090 GPU, with up to 4x the performance of its predecessor.

The world’s first GPUs based on the new NVIDIA® Ada Lovelace architecture, the RTX 40 Series delivers massive generational leaps in performance and efficiency, and represents a new era of real-time ray tracing and neural rendering, which uses AI to generate pixels.

“The age of RTX ray tracing and neural rendering is in full steam, and our new Ada Lovelace architecture takes it to the next level,” said Jensen Huang, NVIDIA’s founder and CEO, at the GeForce® Beyond: Special Broadcast at GTC.

“Ada provides a quantum leap for gamers and paves the way for creators of fully simulated worlds. With up to 4x the performance of the previous generation, Ada is setting a new standard for the industry,” he said.

DLSS 3 Generates Entire Frames for Faster Game Play
Huang also announced NVIDIA DLSS 3 — the next revolution in the company’s Deep Learning Super Sampling neural-graphics technology for games and creative apps. The AI-powered technology can generate entire frames for massively faster game play. It can overcome CPU performance limitations in games by allowing the GPU to generate entire frames independently.

The technology is coming to the world’s most popular game engines, such as Unity and Unreal Engine, and has received support from many of the world’s leading game developers, with more than 35 games and apps coming soon.

Additionally, the RTX 40 Series GPUs feature a range of new technological innovations, including:
  • Streaming multiprocessors with up to 83 teraflops of shader power — 2x over the previous generation.
  • Third-generation RT Cores with up to 191 effective ray-tracing teraflops — 2.8x over the previous generation.
  • Fourth-generation Tensor Cores with up to 1.32 Tensor petaflops — 5x over the previous generation using FP8 acceleration.
  • Shader Execution Reordering (SER) that improves execution efficiency by rescheduling shading workloads on the fly to better utilize the GPU’s resources. As significant an innovation as out-of-order execution was for CPUs, SER improves ray-tracing performance up to 3x and in-game frame rates by up to 25%.
  • Ada Optical Flow Accelerator with 2x faster performance allows DLSS 3 to predict movement in a scene, enabling the neural network to boost frame rates while maintaining image quality.
  • Architectural improvements tightly coupled with custom TSMC 4N process technology results in an up to 2x leap in power efficiency.
  • Dual NVIDIA Encoders (NVENC) cut export times by up to half and feature AV1 support. The NVENC AV1 encode is being adopted by OBS, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Discord and more.
New Ray-Tracing Tech for Even More Immersive Games
For decades, rendering ray-traced scenes with physically correct lighting in real time has been considered the holy grail of graphics. At the same time, geometric complexity of environments and objects has continued to increase as 3D games and graphics strive to provide the most accurate representations of the real world.

Achieving physically accurate graphics requires tremendous computational horsepower. Modern ray-traced games like Cyberpunk 2077 run over 600 ray-tracing calculations for each pixel just to determine lighting — a 16x increase from the first ray-traced games introduced four years ago.

The new third-generation RT Cores have been enhanced to deliver 2x faster ray-triangle intersection testing and include two important new hardware units. An Opacity Micromap Engine speeds up ray tracing of alpha-test geometry by a factor of 2x, and a Micro-Mesh Engine generates micro-meshes on the fly to generate additional geometry. The Micro-Mesh Engine provides the benefits of increased geometric complexity without the traditional performance and storage costs of complex geometries.

Creativity Redefined With RTX Remix, New AV1 Encoders
The RTX 40 Series GPUs and DLSS 3 deliver advancements for NVIDIA Studio creators. 3D artists can render fully ray-traced environments with accurate physics and realistic materials, and view the changes in real time, without proxies.

Video editing and live streaming also get a boost from improved GPU performance and the inclusion of new dual, eighth-generation AV1 encoders. The NVIDIA Broadcast software development kit has three updates, now available for partners, including Face Expression Estimation, Eye Contact and quality improvements to Virtual Background.

NVIDIA Omniverse™ — included in the NVIDIA Studio suite of software — will soon add NVIDIA RTX Remix, a modding platform to create stunning RTX remasters of classic games. RTX Remix allows modders to easily capture game assets, automatically enhance materials with powerful AI tools, and quickly enable RTX with ray tracing and DLSS.

Portal Is RTX ON!
RTX Remix has been used by NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios to reimagine Valve’s iconic video game Portal, regarded as one of the best video games of all time. Advanced graphics features such as full ray tracing and DLSS 3 give the game a striking new look and feel. Portal with RTX will be released as free, official downloadable content for the classic platformer with RTX graphics in November, just in time for Portal’s 15th anniversary.

The GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080: The New Ultimate GPUs
The RTX 4090 is the world’s fastest gaming GPU with astonishing power, acoustics and temperature characteristics. In full ray-traced games, the RTX 4090 with DLSS 3 is up to 4x faster compared to last generation’s RTX 3090 Ti with DLSS 2. It is also up to 2x faster in today’s games while maintaining the same 450W power consumption. It features 76 billion transistors, 16,384 CUDA® cores and 24GB of high-speed Micron GDDR6X memory, and consistently delivers over 100 frames per second at 4K-resolution gaming. The RTX 4090 will be available on Wednesday, Oct. 12, starting at $1,599.

The company also announced the RTX 4080, launching in two configurations. The RTX 4080 16GB has 9,728 CUDA cores and 16GB of high-speed Micron GDDR6X memory, and with DLSS 3 is 2x as fast in today’s games as the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and more powerful than the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti at lower power. The RTX 4080 12GB has 7,680 CUDA cores and 12GB of Micron GDDR6X memory, and with DLSS 3 is faster than the RTX 3090 Ti, the previous-generation flagship GPU.

Both RTX 4080 configurations will be available in November, with prices starting at $1,199 and $899, respectively.
